The Innernett

sixpenceee:

Welsh house painter John Renie died in 1832. The unusual inscription on his grave takes the form of a grid, 19 squares across and 15 squares high. In each square is a letter.

You can make out some clear words. “Here” and “Lies” are in that in that string above, and you can see the start of “John.” But why the jumble?

After 170 years, a local TV station finally analyzed it, determining that it was a type of acrostic puzzle. Starting at the H in the very center and working outward, the sentence “Here Lies John Renie” can be read in 46000 different ways!

Some say he was trying to keep his soul safe from the devil by confusing him. Others say he was just having a bit of fun.

reminder: ferguson and palestine are still happening and are still important even though there’s less attention being paid to them right now

this also applies to the missing school girls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria!

Hawaii was first called the Sandwich Islands.

Pretty sure it was first called  Niʻihau, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Molokaʻi, Lānaʻi, Kahoʻolawe, Maui and Hawaiʻi.
The earliest habitation supported by archaeological evidence dates to as early as 300 CE, whereas the 1778 arrival of British explorer James Cook was Hawaiʻi’s first documented contact with European explorers. Cook named the islands the “Sandwich Islands” in honor of his sponsor John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich.
Because things only exist when Europeans discover them smh

This. ffs
