OK Liz. I just got home from a long day at work. What are the answers to the art quiz?
After reading a relatively recent bio of Salvador Dali, I have to admit that he was more seriously bent than I had thought. Too bad he and Kanonenkoenig Krupp couldn't have gotten together and debated the aromatic qualities of human vs. horse excrement.
Another one who got off on human fecal matter was James Joyce. I could gross you out with what he liked; read a bio of him and find the answer, unless you already know.
"By the 11-1200's Christ's beard was pretty much the accepted standard in the West.
Interestingly enough, Christians in E. Africa kept Christ clean-shaven for sometime after that"
Now I know this is a bit of an odd question, but not being a man I can't answer it. Maybe even a man can't. How in the days of Christ, did men shave their facial hair? What did they use to shave with. Inquiring minds want to know, or at least my mind does.

Thanks Liz. Sheesh, the only reason I got Dali right was from what I learned on the FReeper art ping list. Thanks for the answers, thanks to all the art information posters, and thanks for all that you do Liz, on this thread and others.
Liz, thanks for the ping. I held off to give others a chance first. The only one that was new to me was the Corot self-portrait. Very insightful spotting of that by an earlier poster. Nice to see that.
There is nothing on earth either so mundane or so disgusting that somewhere, somebody is getting off on it. And chances are the ACLU will fearlessly litigate until we are compelled to validate said behavior.
(Blush) You're welcome.
Thanks for the razors link. They look more like brass knuckles. Those round things, what part does the shaving, all around the circle? Man, shaving in those days must have been like taking your life in your own hands, literally.
How interesting. I hadn't been aware of the difference in the earlier depiction of Christ.
