75 The girl on the left looks like a modern-day actress, or at least 20th century. Can't think of the name.

The one in the middle *looks* like she has a short butch haircut, but it might simply be that she has her hair tied back or pinned up like her friend on the right. The shadow the standing girl casts on the pillar is bluish and knife-edged, suggesting that not only is this summer, but that the air is very clear and dry. Probably not true of the Aegean area, though.

Interesting possibility. I once listened to an art museum docent (yes, a middle aged white woman now that you mention it) explain that in the classic Greek style, all the faces are the same because that was their ideal of perfect beauty.

92 I like his use of blocks of color and especially the detail in the stone work and clothing. But the faces seem unanimated, as if they were heads from a statue put on manikin bodies. Their postures do reflect the stiff lines of the stones and water and maybe that's the point. More relaxed, languid poses might make an interesting contrast.

128 As was brought up in the last thread, Bluefield, WV, "America's air-conditioned city," looks like a cool place to live. House prices look very good. Only 10K people in the city itself, but the metro area or "statistical area" has about 100K. And summertime temps seem to hang in the high 70s to mid-80s tops; a couple of window units would help out if it gets warm. Hmmm . . .

199 @167 m-If a rider in the TdF or any other cycling race has to drop a deuce it will be discussed among the other teams in the peloton. Usually the group will slow down significantly so a rider can do his business(usually behind a car or bushes on the side of the road) and catch back up. To take a leak you drop to the back while a teammate pushes you from the side, you hike up the leg of your shorts and urinate while on the bike. Trying not to piss on yourself, bike and teammate.

Half of any oil refinery is de-sulfurization units. Some much sulfur is produced that sulfur is basically worthless. If you could find a way to make money using elemental sulfur as a feed stock, you'd be rich.

This is true. But oil is waay easier to desulfurize because it is a liquid. The trick with coal is how small do you need to crush it in order to yield enough surface area to remove the desired amount of sulfur.

One of the docks at the Port of Galveston features several mountains" of pure yellow sulfur, each covering about a half a football field's footprint, and about 50 ft. high. And the Savage trucking company has a constant stream of tanker trucks carrying molten sulfur to the same facility. It comes in on trucks, goes out on ships. To where, I know not.

I'd go to the port and ask, but am hesitant. They don't sulfer fools gladly.

Usually the group will slow down significantly so a rider can do his business(usually behind a car or bushes on the side of the road) and catch back up. To take a leak you drop to the back while a teammate pushes you from the side, you hike up the leg of your shorts and urinate while on the bike. Trying not to piss on yourself, bike and teammate.

The artist is not a director, and if he was and was and were going to use the casting couch it would be with men, not women as he's gay and has been living with his partner for some time.

I think the woman on the left is cute, and (Wowee) occasionally there are women in a group of three who are not lesbians, even Greek women.

Willowed, but coolant for aluminum engines is still 50% water. Straight antifreeze has less heat-carrying capacity, and will gel at higher temperatures than a blend. The trick is to have the right anti-corrosion additives present.
