Happy May day! A viddy, a pic, and some quotes, and that’s about it.
Viddy of the day: A Corner in Wheat. This is a D.W. Griffith short released in 1909, about a tycoon who corners the world market in wheat, and what happens because of it.
To understand political power aright, and derive from it its original, we must consider what estate all men are naturally in, and that is, a state of perfect freedom to order their actions, and dispose of their possessions and persons as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of Nature, without asking leave or depending upon the will of any other man.
Pic of the day: Vitruvian Man by Leonardo D Vinci

That’s it from here, America. G’night.
