A Roman goblet could be an 1,600-year-old example of nanotechnology, according to experts. The mysterious Lycurgus Cup is made of dichroic glass and appears green when lit from the front and turns bright red when a light is shone on it from behind.

The chalice, which is on display at The British Museum, London, uses similar techniques to modern nanotechnology - the manipulation of materials on an atomic and molecular scale - which scientists believe could be used for everything from diagnosing diseases to identifying bioharzards at airports.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

Strange material. Curious as to how it was stumbled upon.

also, ever notice that scientists always seem to be 'baffled' or 'puzzled'..?

that's probably because one guy writes all the stories and all the news agencies just pick it up and rewrite it a little... never forget: a child's happiness is priceless - especially on a birthday. yup.gif

We've done this all before, risen up and knocked back down, again and again, for at least millions of years and not for only the two hundred thousand years that the currently enforced belief structure lies of the powers that be would like us to think and believe, for modern humans have been around for a heluva lot longer than that > http://www.s8int.com/page6.html

"Ozymandias"

I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: "Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away."

-Percy Shelley

Must have been some seriously high quality opium around back then ha haa haaa (*=*)

But upon an equally serious note, drugs dont create talent, but they certainly can enhance them and thats quite an elegant poem...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium_and_Romanticism

Quote: "Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow --
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand --
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep -- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?"

Edgar Allan Poe - 1809 - 1849

Lol probably was. Point being, there have been cultures we know nothing about. I found a book in the free book bin a while ago called 'The Atlantis Enigma' by... I forget but it had some pretty damn interesting stuff in it. Herbie Brennan, that's the author. Fascinating.

Heres a massive amount of fascinating and hushed up and suppressed information about out of place out of time artifacts > http://www.s8int.com/page6.html
