I was just at the Wellcome museum last week (which has a very cool fusion of Enlightenment and Modernist museum design). But I didn't know they had an image collection. Wonderful!

I can see the thousands of webcomic writers with no drawing ability rubbing their hands together with glee.

In seriousness, I actually quite like them anyhow. But that is all besides the point; this site wins the awesome prize.

I hit enter too soon. Those links appear to log me in as you, if I have javascript turned off. With javascript on, I guess I fail the cookie test and I get set back to anonymous.

Weird.
