We all love gifs - those highly entertaining movable feasts that are so popular on Tumblr. Here is one, but it has a history that predates the internet. You are looking at a gif of a phenakistiscope, a 19th-century revolving paper disk imprinted with a series of drawings, which was spun so as to produce a moving image. The device was invented around 1840 by Joseph Plateau. Dancing couples, jumping monkeys, acrobats, and figures jumping into the mouths of lions: Plateau’s stroboscopic disks produced highly entertaining mini-movies, like our modern gifs, be it over a century and a half before animation films were first made. When we look at a gif on Tumblr, let’s remember that the technique of producing such moving images made up from a small batch of individual pictures dates back to a pre-digital world - to the days before movies, photography and digital cameras.
Gif: this is the source of the 21st-century gif of a 19th-century phenakistiscope presented above. Check out some (real moving) examples here, here, here and here.

The remains of Tutankhamun’s Parents, Akhenaten and the mummy only identified as “The Younger Lady”, and his grandparents, Queen Tiye and Amenhotep III.

It was recently proved this “Younger Lady” mummy is in fact Tutankhamun’s mother, and a full sister to Akhenaten. Thus King Tut only had one set of grandparents.

Awesome
