What you can see

Here are five things you might want to see:

(1) St Petersburg from above.

(2) Strange sights in Eastern Europe.

(3) How clever a man is just by looking at him. But you can't tell how clever a woman is just by looking at her: "Both men and women were able to accurately evaluate the intelligence of men by viewing facial photographs. ... No relationship between perceived intelligence and IQ was found for women." Is it because men wear glasses but women might be wearing contact lenses? Is that comment offensive to bright people with good eyesight? Is that a category of person to whom one mustn't insult nowadays? Or is it just sexist?

(4) The Book of Kells.

(5) What has happened to Shanghai.
