The only reason she's green now is because of oxidation.
"It's made of metal! It's not alive! How can it move?"
I knew it was because of oxidation, but I wondered if it had already oxidated by the time it was delivered, or if it was bright for many years before going green. In any event, it's a nice green-blue hue, so it looks good regardless. What must have been awful looking is the time between partial and complete oxidation, where it would have had patches of this and that.
Gemini = Best. Villain. Ever! on that show
Rand Paul (joining Marco Rubio, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, and sometimes Jeb Bush) announces his support for comprehensive Immigration Reform with a pathway to citizenship.
the entire tea party is just being punk'd so hard right now
It was brown, and they decided against undoing the patina effects that began to set in around 1900 because they decided it looked better.
and by "it", he means "your mom"
It's weird that the people who built the statue didn't that, when exposed to the elements, copper turns green. That seems like something humans should have known for thousands of years....
If it originally had a color like the mockup Saintheart posted on the previous page, then it would have been quite a sight, and both looks are good, in their own way. But if it was darker, more like bronze, like this:
then I agree that it looks better now.
I just linked to an entire wikipedia article that has paintings of its unveiling, man. Google is your friend.
Now that you mentioned it, I noticed that painting (singular). That one's pretty dark, almost black. I like it better the way it looks now.
So happy to know there are Thundarr fans.
The Statue of Liberty had to be closed after Hurricane/Superstorm (whichever type you want to call it) Sandy rolled through, but it was just announced that it will reopen on July 4th.
And I just couldn't resist Doctor Who's take on Lady Liberty:
That was actually the weakest part of that episode. Which was pretty week all around, in retrospect.
Psychokinetic slime and an NES Advantage controller. Duh.
That's History International.They've got all the Hitler shows one could ever ask for.
And I'm pretty sure most of them are narrated by Kenneth Branagh.
Steven Colbert's sister the offical Democratic nominee for SC congressional seat, Mark Sanford advances in Republican primary; faces run-off.
Nikes in her size optional.
Yeah, it was, I thought, an good ep with a decent send - off, and I liked Karen's final scene - the graveyard scene, not her voice over at the end (one of her better moments acting wise), but yeah, not the best companion endings, by any means.
Ceiling Liberty Is Watching You Masturbate.
Sometimes I find it difficult to determine where a bit of news belongs between the politics thread and the Derp thread. This is one of those times.
House science subcommittee now headed by a climate science denier
Michelle Bachmann at CPAC went on a spending fit about how Obama has 5 chefs on Air Force 1, about how he has a dog walker, and about how he spends 1.4 billion on excessive staff. None of this is true. The 1.4 billion is something every Prez gets and has mostly to do with security. A CNN reporter chased her down about her lies and dodged it all and brought up the (so far) debunked Benghazi items and accused the reporter of bringing up the other stuff to which the reporter pointed out that Michelle herself is the one who brought it all up.
EDIT: Here its, the CNN chase down begins at 6:13.
