Off to see King Tut
No, not that guy. This guy:
Today Karen, Max and I are off to the city of my birth, Philadelphia, to take in a little culture. That's right, we're headed to the Franklin Institute to see the Egyptian King Tutankhamen relic exhibit. I love the Franklin Institute due to it's focus on technology rather than natural history, but I actually haven't been there since I was a kid. I distinctly remember hand-cranking an Edison light bulb to life, and being fascinated by the huge Foucault Pendulum (video HERE) by the staircase. Maybe they'll even have some electric fans!
The gift shop is loaded with Tut goodies... I was thinking maybe THIS would be nice to have. What's that? HOW MUCH? Never mind. Maybe some of this $40 a pound chocolate? Nah. My torso is bloated enough as it is. Waitaminnit! I gotta have THIS! Yep, that's just the thing. I can wear it while blissing out on THIS. See what you learn by going to museums? I didn't even know that the ancient Egyptians had recording devices. Too cool. Sounds like a plan. See you all later.
