The Queen’s Android (via http://bit.ly/Krr44d)
"This famous android was a collaborative effort by two Germans. Clockmaker Peter Kintzing created the mechanism and joiner David Roentgen crafted the cabinet; the dress dates from the 19th century. Automatons were in circulation and aroused much curiosity. Roentgen probably sent the tympanum to the French court and Marie-Antoinette bought it in 1784. The queen, aware of its perfection and scientific interest, had it deposited in the Academy of Sciences cabinet in 1785. The tympanum is a musical instrument that plays eight tunes when the female android strikes the 46 strings with two little hammers. Tradition has it that she is a depiction of Marie-Antoinette."

Some might think it too much to have a Yacht Club modeled after a luxury liner. Like those who criticize garlic usage, they are best ignored.

"Hm, it does seem better off to ignore those who would criticize such an idea. It only seems surprising that it hasn’t been attempted earlier."

Not that I am complaining but it was bound to happen at some point or another. There are things best put to deaf ears.

Vintage Mechanical Caterpillar, 1820s
Made by Swiss watchmaker Henri Maillardet for sale to aristocratic Chinese buyers, this striking mechanical caterpillar is truly one of a kind. The gold, jewel and pearl-set piece mimics the caterpillar’s crawl with a clockwork powered mechanism.
It was titled ‘the Ethiopian caterpillar’ when Maillardet, in partnership with watchmaker Jaquet Droz, organized an exhibition to show off his miniaturized automata in London.

"I think it’s so easy to get caught up in this kind of mould and structure of what people think dancers should be and look like and I think, even just looking at these shows that are now on television, it’s showing that you can be any colour. Y’know, you don’t have to be stick thin. I think it’s more just about what you’re bringing to this art form and how you’re expressing yourself.”

This article ha-has to be false. I do not think I have been ca-caught stealing once in my life. ;;

Why would that be faked? Would my citizens want to admit they were briefly made fools of by a teenager wanting to “turn up”?

Turn up?

// stares what the hell does that mean seu //

Wh-what are they turning up, that ma-makes no sense— Did they a-at least enjoy the nice drinks-

Party. 

In tipsy but hip young American.

[Feels infinitely better at getting to show off a bit, who speaks middle aged salesman now huh?]

-If they did, they didn’t drink and drive. A small mercy.

{{Child/young teenager Cécile (not her name at the time ofc) gnashing her teeth in envy of martyrs and saints, desperately wanting to at least become a nun and being absolutely destroyed at her dream being shattered when someone hisses there is no place in the Eternal Kingdom for someone like her/a nation and desperately pleading for reassurance from her ‘caretaker’ at the time}}
