  1. Pope Innocent X reminds me of a Hollywood actor in that painting.

    1. He does have a famous face. It is interesting that pope's officials thought the portrait above shows him as very cruel and that he would hate it but he actually loved it. But all pope's were or are bastards, aren't they? Some were even Hitler type of villains, just remember Rodrigo Borgia for example. Murder, rape, genocide, orgies, incest, it was all fun for him.

  2. Wow, talk about shock after shock. This is something I’d watch if it ever comes to be! It seems the best stories to watch are the ones based on real life.

  3. I think I'd like to be in a secret espionage society. Then again, I lose my phone and glasses 50 times a day, so I'd probably get kicked out on day 1.

    1. I'd like it too! I tend to notice lots of things that others don't.

    2. You sound like Jason. He's always talking about how he sees things others don't. I'm so oblivious to my surroundings most days, it's a wonder I haven't been kidnapped and murdered yet.

    3. Jason is like my long lost twin oftentimes. I do dress better, though LOL but he'd probably be better in the spying action itself given that I'm as flexible and movable as a walrus.

    4. And I'm also very quiet while walking and stealthy in the darkness. Really, an elf. But fat as an orc.

    5. Jason has 0 style sense. Less than 0. He's got his workout pants and his weekend pants (basically workout pants too lol) that he lives in when he doesn't have his work pants on. He used to dress nice when he was fit and buff like 15 years ago. I suppose the closer he gets to 40, the less he give a shit about style and the more he gravitates towards comfort. I've given up trying to get him to dress decent anymore LOL

    6. I wear workout pants most of the time too, I have about five to ten sweatpants which I wear even to the city because I cannot stuff myself into tight jeans :) But I do match them nicely so that they look comfy classy in an urban way as much as I can with my fugly body. Jason and I have that sort of body with which you simply don't know what to do fashionwise.

    7. Well, at least you've figured it out and try. He's completely given up lolol.
