    I visited the Grassi Museum in Leipzig on Tuesday for an Indonesian evening and took some photos of it since it is built in Art Déco style. I also saw the famous column hall in it which is supposed to be one of the few German Art Déco halls existing (now restored after being destroyed in WW2) but I wasn't allowed to take photos there. Plus, it didn't look as impressive.

    Awesome pics in this thread! Not much thief inspiration around my neighborhood. I'm surrounded by brick boxes and vinyl siding.

Doesn't matter if I walk on my toes or heels, or how softly I step - the actual contact with the floor is ominously loud in the quiet bedroom. I've always thought Garrett's step sounds were ridiculously exaggerated, but now that I've been able to replicate shoes on hard floor in RL, I think if anything, the designers toned them down.
    Y'know, I've got to agree with you on this.

    Yep. I learned it back when I was 13-years-old and half the weight I am now, while sneaking out of the house at night during the summer, and for four more summers after that. Even just the cracking of my joints and the groaning and scraping of fabrics was unnerving. Opening and closing my bedroom door and then the front door or back sliding door, or worse, the bedroom window and removing the screen, and than getting myself through the aluminum frame without scraping over the metal as I was getting taller year after year, was a long drawn-out affair. When I saw this, I could relate (starting at 7:20):

    There was a clip on of it on YouTube, but it was removed, so sorry if people can't see it.

    The marketplace in lego form!


    A lego church, note the gears


    I found this one amazing, it's the same castle from KING'S STORY! Well, I guess this one is really the other way around; Thief (or rather Zontik xD ) associating with real life haha.

    Not only that but the background reminds me a bit of some parts of Running Interference.

    'World's oldest champagne' found on Baltic seabed




    The diver who retrieved the champagne said it was an honour to drink it.

    Divers have found 30 bottles of champagne thought to pre-date the French Revolution on the Baltic seabed.

    When they opened one, they found the wine - believed to have been made by Clicquot (now Veuve Clicquot) between 1782 and 1788 - was still in good condition.

    The bottle - whose shape indicates it was produced in the 18th Century - has now been sent to France for analysis.

    If confirmed, it would be the oldest drinkable champagne in the world.

    Diver Christian Ekstrom was exploring a shipwreck on the Baltic seabed when he found the bottles.
    'Sweet taste'

    He took one to the surface, where he opened it and tasted it with his colleagues.

    "It was fantastic," he told the Reuters news agency.

    "It had a very sweet taste, you could taste oak and it had a very strong tobacco smell. And there were very small bubbles."

    According to records, Clicquot champagne was first produced in 1772 but was laid down for 10 years, the French news agency AFP reported.
    Champagne bottle found on Baltic seabed - 16 July 2010 Experts think the remaining bottles could fetch high prices at auction.

    Production was disrupted after the French Revolution in 1789.

    The wine found on the seabed was perfectly preserved because of the conditions of dark and cold on the seabed.

    If the bottles do come from the 1780s, that would make them around 40 years older than the current record-holder, a bottle of Perrier-Jouet from 1825.

    Wine experts estimate each bottle would fetch around 500,000 Swedish kronor (Ł45,000; $69,000) at auction.

    The bottles were found off the coast of Aaland, an autonomous part of Finland. The local authorities will decide what is done with the shipwreck - and the champagne.

    Here's an old film with the sound recorded on a wax cylinder:

    You'll notice that one of the two men on the right seems to find his situation rather amusing whilst the other one looks a bit embarrassed.

    Speaking of it, in the first Dragon, the magazine of the Swiss 15th century re-enactment group "Company of Saynt George", on page 14 you find a few quotes from a Tudor comedy including lots of curses and stuff in old English.

    Coin stacks. I took the pic with the worst camera invented. Each stack is 1€, that is 20 x 5 cent coins. The last stack is 70 c. So in total there is 10€ 70c of just 5c coins.

    The bag I had them in was about the size of those coin purses in Thief and it still weighs 830g.
