Fun With Calcium Carbonate

Some enterprising soul has drawn a picture of Barack Obama in chalk outside the library on the Science Site. Which is pretty cool in itself. What makes it even better is that there's a check-list beside the picture, which says something like:
  • End war;
  • Close Guantanamo;
  • End immunity from persecution for war criminals.
Only the first two are ticked. Which works as political statement in terms of what Obama's said, but in terms of actual list-checking it tells us that this is a chalk drawing of President Obama scratched out on paving slabs from the future. Tell me that isn't awesome.

I really wish I had had my camera on me (or at all, though the repair work will start this week) so I could show it to you. It's wonderful.

A little drop that will cost £77 to fix. It's a good job Gooder bought us house insurance.
