Due to the recent outbreak of Covid-19, countries around the world have instituted quarantine, which means that many of us are forced to stay home.
But this does not have to be boring. Not at all.
Google Arts And Culturehave partnered with over 1,200 museums and galleries from all over the world to bring everyone virtual tours and exhibitions of some of the world’s most museums and art galleries.
To make sure that you don’t miss the opportunity to virtually visit these museums, we’ve made a list of ten world-famous galleries that you can explore right from the comfort of your own home.
French artist, astronomer, and amateur entomologist Étienne Léopold Trouvelot is noted for two major contributions in his lifetime: the 7000 or so illustrations he created from his astronomical observations and the accidental introduction of the highly destructive European Gyspy moth in North America.
Obviously, today we’re going to take a look at some of his most exquisite astronomical illustrations, which are guaranteed to leave you speechless.
This is arguably the best time to put together such a list: the technology is there, allowing for special effects to help us suspend disbelief, the actors who have been cast to play the parts are as brilliant as they come, and studios are investing more and more money into big budget adaptations of comic books.
I have no doubt that we’ll see more and more superhero movies, some of them quite brilliant and easy to recommend.
That being said, here are the ten best superhero movies of all time.

I let the commotion around me these days subside a bit before speaking to you from the bottom of my heart. I have just been given far too great an honor, one I neither sought nor solicited. But when I heard the news, my first thought, after my mother, was of you. Without you, without the affectionate hand you extended to the small poor child that I was, without your teaching and example, none of all this would have happened. I don’t make too much of this sort of honor. But at least it gives me the opportunity to tell you what you have been and still are for me, and to assure you that your efforts, your work, and the generous heart you put into it still live in one of your little schoolboys who, despite the years, has never stopped being your grateful pupil. I embrace you with all my heart.
There’s a part of me that believes art to be a primordial aspect of the human condition. Art inspires, art is a way of achieving greatness, of building a better world. Art turns strangers into friends. Without art, without artists, we wouldn’t be ourselves anymore.
Because I feel that within the confines of any artistic form of expression, we allow ourselves to wear a mask. The artist hides behind words or paints or brushes. And he feels safe.

It does make you smarter, more culture, more empathetic, but all of these are optional. You can be dumb and live and long and happy life.
That being said, in a world where people read, on average, a book per year, here are some incredibly dumb reasons to read…
