1637 Buck Rogers leaves the shores of Europe on a boat only to be sucked into a magical whirlpool and dropped on the American coast 300 years later. This true story inspires the long running Broadway show 'Buck Rogers in the 20th Century'.

He went on to do something else after that but I just can't remember what it was...  :whistle:

People who tried looking for a needle in a haystack usually gave up after taking a better look at 1638 straws in total.

Straw number 1639 is the straw that broke the camels back.

1640 straws on the camel back was record set by group of enthusiasts and the camel they borrowed from the local zoo, but it sadly couldn’t be officially recognized because of semi-legal atmosphere of the event. There were rumours about using only short straws too. Not that it matters now.

Little village Vrana near Pakoštane in Croatia is another typically Dalmatian place, apart from one building. It’s a Turkish han, built in 1644. It is believed to be the most western situated example of traditional Turkish architecture.  
Back in 17th century traffic was lively as it is today and many merchant caravans needed places to rest, take a bath, eat...  in Vrana you could do that oriental style too.
The han was built by Jusuf Mašković, Slavic by genes, Turkish by whim of history. He worked as gardener in sultan’s palace in Istanbul and legend says he befriended sultan Ibrahim II who found new job for his gardener, who advanced and advanced until he became an admiral in Ottoman fleet. His career was stopped abruptly when he was beheaded, because contrary to popular belief military commanders do need a head to do their jobs.
Some say he was executed because he released prisoners taken in the battle, others because he used money from Ottoman state treasury to built that very han in Vrana.
Either way, the han still stands, is currently under reconstruction and will probably be opened for the public rather soon.

And by April the following year (1647 for those who aren't paying attention), the Agitators of the New Model Army were already protesting delay of pay.

Kings always have no problem promising pay, but difficulty following through.

1648 could be a nice, round number if it was a little bigger.
