Big scary clouds

Now, that is one massive big fuck-off scary cloud. Actually, if you want to get technical, it’s a supercell. Who are we to argue? I found it, via Plep (see sidebar) at the Cloud Appreciation Society (aww), and it links to the photographer’s own staggering site.

If you ever wanted to tell whether that 400-year-old document or Roman tablet you have is authentic, or just understand them better, go to this Palæography site.

“You need not say anything. You have nothing to hope from any promise or favour and nothing to fear from any threat whether or not you say anything.” The Miranda warnings of the world, at Metafilter.

And finally, and most importantly of all, BBC Radio 3 is broadcasting the complete works of J.S. Bach from the 16th of December, ending on Christmas Day. There will be quite a galaxy of performers, presenters and interviewees — and, arguably, the finest single corpus of pieces by any composer/musician, ever.
