A Typical Sunspot In the cold, clear air of 23–24 Dec 1873 Samuel Pierpont Langley, then director of the Allegheny Observatory and professor at the Western University of Pennsylvania, was viewing the sun using the observatory’s 13-inch Fitz-Clark refractor and created this remarkably detailed drawing of a single sunspot. The drawing, now a solar astronomy classic, was widely reprinted. The version above, a steel engraving by Samuel Sartain of Philadelphia, was included as the frontispiece in Charles Young’s textbook The Sun.
“In recent weeks, organizers worked tirelessly to arrange everything in the best way possible. All notices about upcoming celebrations were passed along through word of mouth, with no notices in writing, no posters on the synagogue walls, no invitations sent through the mail, nor even a report in any publication, including this very newspaper.”
The Satmar synagogue, which has a maximum capacity of 7,000, jammed men onto bleachers filled to the rafters, the videos show. Women sat in the balcony behind a barricade.

Venetie Drone Views when there were no drones Kolb never stated exactly how Barbari composed the view, but as Juergen Schultz points out in his classic analysis, it must have been prepared from dozens, perhaps hundreds of bell tower sightings: “… Jacapo’s view is neither a giant landscape drawing made in the field, nor a carefully compiled, foreshortened plan, it can only be a studio fabrication. It must have been assembled mosaic-fashion at the drawing table from a myriad of small view details made from heights throughout the city.”
Listener up there! what have you to confide to me?
Look in my face while I snuff the sidle of evening,
(Talk honestly, no one else hears you, and I stay only a minute
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.)
I concentrate toward them that are nigh, I wait on the door-slab.
Who has done his day’s work? who will soonest be through with
Who wishes to walk with me?
Will you speak before I am gone? will you prove already too late?
Lorne Malvo: Your problem is you spent your whole life thinking there are rules. There aren’t. We used to be gorillas. All we had is what we could take and defend. The truth is, you’re more of a man today than you were yesterday.
Lester Nygaard: How do you figure?
Lorne Malvo: It’s a red tide, Lester, this life of ours. The shit they make us eat day after day, the boss, the wife, et cetera, wearing us down. If you don’t stand up to it, let ’em know you’re still an ape deep down where it counts, you’re just gonna get washed away. — Fargo (TV series)
