Do you see what I see?

That nano pot was posted here on 6 April 2010 and the Head of Microscopy at UCD found it useful. The other responses on the Quorum discussion are cool, too.

Three Women in China

Wednesday, 10 March 2021

Three women in the pillory, China, Anonymous, c.1875

Earliest Tineye image search results link to various Chinese websites (deleted or defunct) ca. February 2008. One source claims these women were accused of witchcraft, which suggests that the picture may have been related to religious persecutions that occurred during the Taiping Rebellion and/or the later Boxer Rebellion.

Religious persecutions persist in modern day communist China, and they are brutal:

“Rooted in atheism and materialism, the communist regime has been brutally suppressing Uyghur Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, and Falun Gong practitioners for years. Those who refuse to comply with the CCP’s orders are detained and taken to secretive “re-education camps” where they are subjected to unimaginable abuses, including gang rape and electrocution.” [Source]
