Bookmarks before browsers
These four medieval bookmarks are 500-700 years old, yet they are smarter than what we use for our modern books - or even in our web browsers. Some just help you find your way back to a certain page, but others do so much more: they mark text column and line, in addition to the page. The lower one, for example, is like a computer that you program. Sliding it up and down, and turning its disk, means you will find your way back to a very specific place: the very line where you left off the day before.
More information on these rare devices and how they work in this blog I wrote about them.

Today (Oct. 16) is the 160th anniversary of Oscar Wilde’s birth. And what better way to mark the occasion than with some of his wittiest material? Par exemple:
“It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.”
“The only thing to do with good advice is pass it on. It is never any use to oneself.”
“Quotation is a serviceable substitute for wit.”
And there’s lots more over on Mental Floss.

Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.
