We're just at the beginning of our awareness of feathered dinosaurs. None Some time in the early 1860s, at the Solnhofen Community Quarry located about halfway between Munich and Nuremburg in Germany, a fossilized feather was discovered in shale deposits.

Why Trump's Nuremburg-y, QAnon-loving, journalist-hating mass rallies matter | Will Bunch

The man who tried to read all the books in the world

129,864,880. That’s the number of books in the world, according to an estimate by Google Books, which since its launch in 2005 has been trying to scan them all, convert them to searchable text using optical character recognition and then make them publicly available online.
