baby on the way to pure greed. There is this assumption that builders know what is going on beneath the ground. We don't. You are looking up Victorian houses.

well-known case of Parliamentary nepotism. Victorian Prime Minister Lord Salisbury successively promoted his unpopular nephew. Arthur was not without talent. He even became Prime Minister, but his career was kick-started by the jobs he received from his uncle. First.

And all the printing on it is still quite nice. It's not Victorian. It's an early 20th-century one. But the best thing about it is that it's not going to break the bank

(Image credit: Leela Cyd ) If I were ever to receive a visit from a Victorian-era time traveler, the first thing I'd show them is the refrigerator. It's a modern miracle that we can keep milk from turning for nearly a month, but what you might not know is that your fridge and freezer can do so much more.

Today in Poe's law comes an advertisement for " Arlan Robotics Service Droid 1.0 " (NSFW), which is basically a nightmarish silicone parody of a woman's head mounted on a machine that lurches back and forth like a Victorian automaton bobbing for apples.

Washington Free Beacon: How has the mission of feminism changed in the past couple of years? Have you seen a significant shift in ideology? Chrstina Hoff Sommers: In the past couple of years, the biggest shift has been on college campuses, where classical equity feminism—which most Americans support—has given way to an extremism I call fainting-couch feminism. The fainting-couch feminists are like those delicate Victorian ladies who retreated to an elegant chaise when overcome by emotion.

Their main goal is not equality with men; it's protection from them. As an equity feminist from the '70s, I see this new feminism—which is more heavily influenced by Marxism than anything else—as a setback for women. We are not children.
