Flecks of Blue on Old Teeth Reveal a Medieval Surprise
They couldn't figure out the blue. Scientists studying tartar from the teeth of medieval skeletons hoped to learn a thing or two of about diets of the Middle Ages. But when they put the teeth and jaw of one woman under a microscope, they were surprised to see hundreds of tiny flecks of blue, reports the BBC. After much sleuthing, they figured out that the blue came from lapis lazuli, a rare and expensive stone ground into powder to make dye for sacred manuscripts. Typically, male monks have gotten most of the credit for working on such texts, but the amount of lapis lazuli in the woman's mouth suggests that she—and presumably other women—were also on the job. Researchers' best guess is that the blue flecks ended up in her teeth because she kept putting the tip of her brush in her mouth, reports the AP.

Gillette’s latest ad spot pegged to #MeToo asks ‘Is this the best a man can get?’
“This is an im­por­tant con­ver­sa­tion hap­pen­ing, and as a com­pany that en­cour­ages men to be their best, we feel com­pelled to both ad­dress it and take ac­tion of our own,” said Pankaj Bhalla, Gillette brand di­rec­tor for North Amer­ica, in an emailed state­ment. “We are tak­ing a re­al­is­tic look at what’s hap­pen­ing to­day, and aim­ing to in­spire change by ac­knowl-edg­ing that the old say­ing ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ is not an ex­cuse.”

"If both people are drunk and decide to have a drunken hook up, the man is a rapist and the woman is a victim. They're not both victims; the man is the rapist because he has a penis. Again, it doesn't make sense, it's not fair – that's the law – because women vote."
