LunarClock.org have devised a clock and calendar for the moon. Apparently, this was necessary because of the moon’s rotation and length of day is different than the Earth’s (or something like that). Anyway, the site’s FAQ gives some explanation.
1. What is the Lunar Calendar and why do I need one?
The Lunar Calendar is designed to be used by colonists of the Moon, and it differs from the one we use here on Earth. Unless you live on the Moon, you don’t really need one, but you can support the idea anyway. Who, knows? Perhaps you will live on the Moon in the future, or your children might. You can read the details on how this calendar works.
Visit LunarClock.org and check current lunar time.
According to LiveScience –
Since 2000, the Swedish Pompeii Project has been working to document an entire city block, or “insula,” in close detail. This block included three big estates, a tavern, a laundry, a bakery and several gardens. Led by Anne-Marie Leander Touati, an archaeologist at Lund University, the Swedish team has used traditional excavation methods as well as more advanced techniques like laser scanning and drone imaging to digitally reconstruct that block. The researchers have now completed their first 3D models showing this section of the city as it stands today.

According to AmusingPlanet.com –
At what point does a street cease to be a street? According to the Guinness Book of Records, the narrowest street in the world is located in the old town of Reutlingen, in Germany. It is actually a narrow alley, called Spreuerhofstraße, between two closely built houses. The “street” is only 31 centimeters wide at its narrowest point and 40 centimeters wide on the average. The street isn’t particularly long either — just 3.8 meters. But since it is located on municipal land, the folks of Reutlingen insist it’s a public street.

According to Gizmodo –
Rejoice, brothers! File sharing is now an official religion in Sweden. For real. It took two years, but it’s done: it’s called the Missionary Church of Kopimism and has Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V as its sacred symbols. Founded in 2010 by philosophy student Isak Gerson, the 3,000-member Missionary Church of Kopimism was created to avoid legal persecution.
