Wow, I always understood that the balloon bombing never accomplished anything, but I didn't realize how close they got.
Next, I technically found this screenshot thread on Twitter, but it appears to have originated on Tumblr, and it’s hard to read via the Twitter embed, so I’ve pasted it in it’s full glory here:
Good to see innovation in the archeological culinary space.
