This is one of my favorite pictures. It feels like it was taken yesterday… but it was taken in a Paris public garden nearly a hundred years ago. Everything feels modern: the composition, the casualness, the daring clothes, haircuts, and accessories.

The women are unknown, but I can't help wondering how they fared a few years later in nazi-occupied Paris.

Green Days “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” redone in classical Classical Latin

"An Elliptic Curve Primality Proving (ECPP) algorithm was used via a primality proving program, Primo 4.3.0 - LX64, to generate a primality certificate which deterministically verifies the primality of p. The certification process took 39 days and 8 hours to complete using an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X (16-Core, 32-Thread, 3.5GHz Base)."
