Today in History

Today, August 12th, 1914 Great (at the time) Britian declares war on the Central Powers which culminates, in a stunning upset of cause and effect, in the death of Cleopatra later this day in 30BC. Or something like that.

Thanks, as always, for the historical perspective.

Back home, embarrassing video from F/S.

Like I don't have my own share of embarrassing F/S videos. They usually start with me something pithy like "What the hell was that?"
