And the interesting thing about the spread of Buddhism was how it changes and morphs into almost a different religion especially by the time it reaches Japan.

New Gilgamesh Fragment: Enkidu's Sexual Exploits Doubled

Sometimes it is the smallest discoveries that have the largest impact. When Alexandra Kleinerman and Alhena Gadotti found a new fragment of the Epic of Gilgamesh in 2015 CE, it did not seem to be particularly impressive. The broken tablet bore just 16 lines of text, most of it already known from other manuscripts. But working on the fragment, Andrew George discovered something remarkable. The structure of the new tablet did not fit our understanding of the epic. To get the fragment to make sense, whole episodes had to be moved around, yielding an entirely new sequence of events. One consequence of this was a new sex scene. The epic tells how the wild man Enkidu became human by having sex with a woman named Shamhat for an entire week, making love for six days and seven nights. But now it turns out that it took, not one, but two full weeks of love-making to make Enkidu truly human.

Nice information on the Kingdom ow Wesex!

Kingdom of Wessex

The Kingdom of Wessex (c. 519-927 CE or c. 519-1066 CE) was a political entity founded by the West Saxon Chieftain Cerdic (r. 519-540 CE) in 519 CE in the Upper Thames Valley of modern-day Britain which would later evolve into the modern nation. The difference in dates concerning the end of the kingdom has to do with whether one accepts the final year as coinciding with Athelstan of Wessex becoming King of England in 927 CE (and uniting all the kingdoms under his rule) or prefers the date of the Norman Invasion of England of 1066 CE when William the Conqueror arrived. There is no consensus on one date being more accurate than the other in scholarly circles but after Athelstan became King of England, the Kingdom of Wessex ended as an independent polity and so 927 CE should be recognized as its end-date.  The early history of the kingdom is marked by frequent conflict with the neighboring Kingdom of Mercia which continued until the reign of King Egbert (also given as Ecgberht, r. 802-839 CE) who conquered Mercia and annexed their lands. Wessex continued to prosper under Egbert's successors and reached its height under Alfred the Great (r. 871-899 CE).

Don't go to a bar. If you do mind your P's and Q's or else you may be conscripted - and thrown on a ship.

I don't know how much people know about the history of this.

Neat link to the HMS Victory.

Here's one to the USS Cnstitution Museum.

The HMS Victory website appears better than the USS constitution Museum website.

Here's a link to a VR of the HMS Courageous submarine.  I don't think the museum did a good job of presenting that.

https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/schools/engineering/eese/news/2017/vir...

It appears to me that the University of Birmingham doesn't get virtual reality internet tours.

A boat I worked on - USS Blue Back also doent have a VR tour.

This VR  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4j9dJ_zvWgQ of the USS Pampanito  birthed in San Francisco is  okay - though not good.

360 Virtual Reality tour of submarne HMS Onslow

is okay.

Some VR tours are better than others.  None of the above in my opinion are good.  Kind of shallow - for submarines that's an insult. 

A good VR tour is deeply complex and allows the viewer to not  only view an oblect, but also click to read information about the object panned upon.

I find ships very interesting to see.
