Mid-Week Mellow

Today, everybody was pushing. Everybody was shoving. Everybody was kung-fu fighting.

Now, it's time to get away from all of that.

Do you know what calms one down? Waterfalls:

Bigăr Waterfall (Caraş-Severin County, Romania)

Isn't that picturesque?

A 1600 year-old Roman shipwreck was found off of the coast of Israel:

The wreckage includes well-preserved items in bronze, such as lamps, a faucet shaped like a wild boar, fragments of statues and a figurine of Luna, the moon goddess. “The sand protected the statues; consequently they are in an amazing state of preservation—as though they were cast yesterday,” says Jacob Sharvit, the director of the Marine Archaeology Unit of the Israel Antiquities Authority and the deputy director Dror Planer, in a statement. Few metal statues have survived the antique period, he explained, since they were often melted down and re-used. Another incredible find was two groups of coins that had been fused together, weighing around 20kg in total.

Hhhmmm. Maybe we shouldn't go into space....

And now, a horse rocks a baby:
