NFL holds Super Bowl in NYC; NYC unimpressed.
While the stadium is technically in New Jersey, it is considered equally if not primarily a New York stadium, and the NFL turned Times Square and Broadway into Super Bowl Boulevard Engineered By GMC.
Visitors can kick a football, watch television, ride a toboggan,
shop, enjoy a free slice of Papa John's pizza, play XBox, take a photo with the oversized Roman numerals 'XLVIII', use relevant Twitter hashtags,
and more. It is not decadent and depraved,
would tend to disagree. The Times discusses less vehement disapproval and disappointment,
while Business Insider wishes ill upon the city. Ticket sales are faltering relative to recent years,
with the new mayor among those skipping out.

is a collection of many ancient, medieval and classic texts from all over the world, many of whom are hard to find anywhere, let alone on the internet. There are translations from Greek
, Old Norse
, Medieval Irish
, Old French
, Medieval Latin
and many more! As well as all that they have papers in medieval studies
and vaguely decadent
series. Adding to that there's a linguistics section
with wordlists and language flash cards in languages such as Icelandic
, Classical Armenian
and a whole bunch more. [flashcard links go to pdf files]
