Believe it or not, you can now study the Dead Sea Scrolls on the Internet.  And after reading them, you can give them a "thumbs up," post a comment on Moses's wall, and become one of his followers.

To commemorate the anniversary of Henry Hudson's voyage up the Hudson River in 1611, people cheered a replica of his ship the Half Moon.  It was named the Half Moon because from the distance, the people on shore thought it was a floating outhouse.
