To read more about life at Pompeii, go to "Food and Wine Gardens: Pompeii, Italy."

LOL

FOOD WINE AND EARTHQUAKES.

that's farking funny.

I read yesterday that they theorize the volcano shot a huge rock in the air that just perfectly ended this poor soul.  but...........that picture, that's a mighty hewn stone.  was it hewn with those right angles in recent times?  doesn't look like a raw rock.  that looks like a more or less symmetrically carved column.

/i can tell by the pixels and the dithering, etc.

Reminds me of the guy who got crushed by the bell when the Sept of Baelor blew.

He was holding a winning lottery ticket?
He was just about to touch Pompeiian Morgan Fairchild's b00b (with permission, of course)
He was holding a winning lottery ticket in one hand and Pompeiian Morgan Fairchild's b00b in the other?

There really aren't a lot of words next to the picture. If were to have read them you would have seen this:

The block of stone, thought to have been a doorjamb that fell during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in A.D. 79, rests on the man's upper body.

Pretty much everyone they find in Pompeii had the worst luck ever.  It's the ones they can't find because they escaped that were the lucky ones.

i just toured the exhibit a few months back.  it was pretty harrowing (even though we only had casts of the original casts, not the actual casts).  the baby screaming with its hands melted off, the slave chained to a wall, his limbs all balled up and head down.....the dog contorted against its leash.  it was pretty farking ......yeah.

As always, Pompeii gets all the attention and Herculaneum is ignored.
 
2018-05-30 1:19:29 PM  
Are we sure that's a human? I've seen similar things in documentaries involving a certain Canis latrans.

Folks forget that Pompeii was a tourist town that the rich and upper classes frequented and vacationed at.  Mt. Vesuvius didn't just erupt suddenly, they had about a week's notice, and in that time the folks that could get away did.

You can't jelly a 300kg stone onto somebody's head?

I also read that the condition of the skeleton indicates the guy had bone infections which would have made him lame, so he probably wasn't getting away anyway. But just think of it. Here you are, with your f-d'up legs, hobbling your self down an alley to get away from the exploding mountain, when all of a sudden there's a rumble, and you look up...

Let us be thankful for that, as the preservation and conservation to Herculaneum is much better.    I've always preferred Herculaneum to Pompeii simply because it's smaller, and the human remains found are skeletal, not a cast.  That's because mud covered Herculaneum whereas ash covered Pompeii.

I'm reminded of a book I read comparing the investigation of the events of 9/11 to Pompeii in terms of injury and physics. 'De-gloving' came up frequently as something that happens when enough mass moves fast enough nearby.
