Today's King Tut exhibit
wasn't all that bad. Lots of interesting stuff to see and read about, but unfortunately Tutankhamun himself was not there. One of the more interesting tidbits was that his sarcophagus
itself was enclosed within 8 additional gold-gilded boxes, with each one bigger than the last. Crazy!
While we were there, we also checked out the rest of the museum, and most of it was boring modern art or crappy paintings that I could care less about, but there was one piece, The Spine and Tooth of Santo Guerro
, that represented a cathedral entirely built out of disassembled machine gun barrels, handguns, scopes, various bullets and pellets. Wickedly awesome!
When we finally got home, we watched the new Stargate Universe, which, while being a bit confusing at times with the use of flashbacks, is pretty damn good so far. As if two hours of TV weren't good enough, we also snuck in the latest "Supernatural" episode, which never disappoints with the good music, action and sarcastic humor.
