THIS. IS. AWESOME.
Here’s a jam to end #TBT! Jimmy as Jim Morrison singing the Reading Rainbow theme song!
My daughter does a great impression of Fallon doing an impression of Morrison.
Detroit waved farewell to the Boblo boat COLUMBIA this week, as it was pushed to Toledo to undergo restoration for a new phase in its career as a sight-seeing boat along the Hudson River. The COLUMBIA, built in Wyandotte by the Detroit Ship Building Company in 1902, carried generations of passengers down the Detroit River to the Boblo Island amusement park for 89 years. The aging COLUMBIA and its sister ship STE. CLAIRE made their final voyages for the park on September 2, 1991, and the park closed its gates two seasons later. The STE. CLAIR remains in the area, and is the focus of an ongoing project to raise funds for its restoration by its current owner.

Skull, found in France, with a knife still embedded it it. The skull belonged to a Roman solider who died during the Gallic Wars, ca. 52BC. It was on display at the Museo Rocsen in Argentina.
Whenever I see things like this, I wonder how they died. I guess it will always be a mystery.
I’m gonna go with “Stabbed through the head”
