For people who are interested in the diplomatic vanity of vanities, Lithuania has always been the subject of political eloquence, precisely because of the historical claims of the Lithuanian people (by the way, nothing in common with the Slavs, and even more so with the poles, not having) to Vilna. But there was no case when a diplomat, who was well aware of the external state situation of Lithuania, became interested in the cultural growth of a young country, looking deeper not into the texts of treaties, notes and agreements, but into folk art, museums and songs, which give a completely unique idea of a small country with a great past.

The great wall of Texas
In 1852 Texas farmers, digging a hole under the economic needs, found the remains of a stone wall, the age of which ranged from 200 to 400 thousand years.
Dr. John Gussman from the University of Texas at Dallas found that all the stones that comprised the wall, have the same level of magnetic field, and concluded that it is a natural formation.
