the world is incredible. there are girls in this world, and there are also dogs. you can put melted cheese on any type of potato.  sometimes flowers grow even when nobody is there to water them. right now on this same planet where we live there are people who are in love with each other kissing each other on the nose. emotions and colours are both things that exist. everything is so great

i needed this, thank you.

Papyrus potpourri
This looks like some bizarre experiment, where snippets of papyrus are put in a Petri dish and studied under a microscope. The truth is much more prosaic. Papyrus, essentially pressed-together plant leaves, was a delicate material and few papyrus rolls have come to us undamaged. Little chips broke off all the time: when ancient repositories of papyrus were discovered in the 20th century, the floors were littered with them. What to do with these minute treasures? You can’t throw them away, but you can’t store them on a shelf either. And so they were gathered and stored in glass dishes. The one seen here is filled with snippets from the 7th century, many of them clearly showing text. It’s a curious mini library fitted in glass - papyrus potpourri of almost 1500 years old.
