In May 2010, a tattered and brittle map was discovered in storage at the Brooklyn Historical Society. Experts identified it as a rare item, a Bernard Ratzer “Plan of the City of New York” map in its 1770 state. Until then, only three copies were thought to exist. After a painstaking restoration to remove layers of shellac and grime and repair dozens of breaks, the map is now behind plexiglass and ready to be displayed to the public.

I think it's retarded.

like this thread jumped off the tallest cliff in greece, then as it was falling it grabbed a hammer and continuously smashed its head with it, then it reached the ground and its head burst open.

This reminds me of that 300 year old Bible they found in Wisconsin. Old books and documents like these are really interesting.

I didn't know Dave Attell had such an avid interest in maps.
