The Sick Dürer-a Renaissance prototype pain map

Albrecht Dürer (1471-1528), the illustrious German printmaker, painter, and designer, produced an intriguing pen and watercolour, half length self portrait. The Sick Dürer is small, 12 cm×11 cm, and on it Dürer wrote, “Do wo der gelb fleck is und mit dem finger drawff dewt do is mir we” (There, where the yellow spot is located, and where I point my finger, there it hurts”). Why Dürer used colour remains a mystery, but it could have been added for emphasis, just as his index finger draws attention to the painful part. via

The new controls can even collect their own section characteristic data, by bending a piece of the section at different settings. Those wanting to use pedal power can ride the 60km to Puyo on the recently paved road, dropping from 6000ft in the Ecuadorian high jungle down into the rain forest basin. phagehunter27: No offense, but "coffee cup calorimeter" doesn't really sound too legit. Whether you look for a luxury automatic watch, sport watch, women watch, or diver watch, you can find it all in invicta collection.
