And most of these geoglyphs loom on hillsides where their makers could plainly see them. Ancient humankind was not as helpless as conspiracy-minded moderns would have them be. Cline also punctures the legend of the Mummy's Curse and the romance of the Indiana Jones movies. He instead presents true stories of archaeological digs and fascinating asides about the lives of a few famous archaeologists, the histories of the regions in which the digs took place, and the technical side of archaeology. Cline covers this latter topic with "interludes," wherein he answers his most often asked questions: "How Do You Know Where to Dig?"; "How Do You Know How to Dig?"; "How Old Is This and Why Is It Preserved?"; and "Do You Get to Keep What You Find?" He includes classic stories such as that of Howard Carter and the Earl of Carnarvon finding King Tut's tomb—when Carnarvon asked him what he saw, Carter famously answered, "I see wonderful things"—and also how Heinrich Schliemann, "discovered" the ruins of Troy—in quotes because Schliemann was a scientific scoundrel.

You can't shoot a Star Wars movie these days without paparazzi sneaking on to the set. That's what happened Friday, when TMZ published a series of sneaky candid photos from the set of the upcoming, still untitled Han Solo origin movie, currently filming in Pinewood studios, London.

The next installment of Saturday Night Live would parody him. Instead, the press has been filled with more than sorrow than anger for the bald-pated lieutenant general, writing as if they had just witnessed a scene from a Shakespeare tragedy where a military leader has chosen duty over honor. Everybody expected more of him. McMaster, after all, was the one who wrote the bookDereliction of Duty —on how a senior officer should not bend in serving the truth to the powerful. President Lyndon Johnson “was lying, and he expected the [Joint Chiefs of Staff] to lie as well or, at least, to withhold the whole truth,” he wrote critically. He had garnered respect from troops and pressies alike for his independent mind. Now here he was, the most prominent officer of his generation giving up his soul, playing the role of apologist, if you want to be polite about it, or the liar, if you dont, for the scoundrel Trump.

Upon arrival we ended up meandering about the streets, giving friends and family a taste of the BMWs comfort. We swiftly descried a recurring sentiment, “this is the perfect road trip car”, which felt very apropos considering the past 15 hours. At 5:00pm we found ourselves heading north giving our mutual friend a lift which we saw as a great opportunity to amass some more photos. After this good deed we saw it fit to return back to Stockholm and employ a family member for some much needed food delivery. While back in the capital we saw it befitting to test the cars capabilities in the environment it will most likely be used, namely the city. Despite costing you more than a house, the BMW 750Li emits discretion. It slithers past the judging gazes of passing pedestrians and only garners their attention once they realize the presence of a young scoundrel in the backseat.

The hot chocolate's gone missing, and everybody knows who ate it. Literally everybody. The kid knows, even if he won't admit it, his younger brother knows and uh, yeah , he's gonna tell you about it, and their dad most certainly knows. It's written all over his son's face. Smeared, really. But if this tiny scoundrel wants to try and convince us that no, he didn't eat the chocolate, it was really just............ black sauce, then go right ahead. It's a pretty cute lie.

So we had to create a character naughty enough for us to like him and simultaneously have him go on a journey that makes him respectable." And it's been further revealed that the new version of Arthur will grow up in an old brothel before using his hard-won street smarts to rise to the top. "He's more streetwise and rough around the edges than most of the Arthurs we've seen," Ritchie went on to explain to Empire . "He's a wide-boy scoundrel with a heart of gold, who has a healthy disdain for the ruling class." Meanwhile, star Charlie Hunnam has been talking with Collider about the strange process of putting the movie together, and it seems that director Ritchie ( Snatch ) decided to do away with the typical table reads and cast get-togethers in favour of filming a sort of initial stage play of the film. "We did something strange and wonderful," Hunnam explains.

Meanwhile, star Charlie Hunnam has been talking with Collider about the strange process of putting the movie together, and it seems that director Ritchie ( Snatch ) decided to do away with the typical table reads and cast get-togethers in favour of filming a sort of initial stage play of the film. "We did something strange and wonderful," Hunnam explains. "I didnt think it was gonna work at all, but it did. Guy had this wacky idea that he wanted to take an afternoon before we started working and shoot the whole film in four hours on two or three cameras and in a room all in black. We shot the whole film, and that’s where we met. That’s where most of the cast met. It was a baptism of fire. It was such a high-energy, sort of anxiety-inducing experience.

In Hamlet, Shakespeare wrote, The lady doth protest too much, methinks. What fun Shakespeare would have with Donald Trump! Imagine a play where Trump, the character, tries to dismiss his ties with Russia, and Shakespeare responds, The scoundrel protests too much. Although Trump and his lackeys keep trying to discredit the various rumors about his dealings with Russia, the press and the U.S. national security bureaucracy wont let them go. There are at least four threads that connect Trump to the Kremlin. 1. Trumps business dealings with Russia.

It is not easy to arouse the frequently dormant patriotism of the New York Times, that eminent journal more often preferring to stand by Samuel Johnson’s warning that patriotism is "the last refuge of a scoundrel." The dignified Times has generally found better ways to be a scoundrel and encourage others to be the same. [...]
