The Lascaux Cave Drawings

Submitted by Roanman on Wed, 09/12/2018 - 08:14


We've been saving this one for months.

Seventy seven years ago today, four teenage boys Marcel Ravidat, Jacques Marsal, Georges Agnel, and Simon Coencas followed their dog, Robot (seriously ... Robot ... if you can believe Wikipedia) into a narrow cave near Montignac, France and discovered the Lascaux Cave Drawings.

Click on the photo below for just the coolest video/interactive tour of the cave and it's thought to be 17,000 year old drawings.

You can noodle around this fine site in French, English, German, Spanish, or all of the above.

Way super, double highly recommended.



Some advice from The Department of Homeland Security

The Department of Homeland Security suggests that in the event you encounter an "active shooter" in your building, you seek to overpower him/her/it with a pair of scissors.

Which should pretty much guarantee that your headstone will read, 




I'm thinking a Glock 9mm in your desk drawer might be an infinitely better approach.
