Linguist Francois Champolion Birthday

What happened on December 23?

Today’s first party boy figured out an ancient mystery and deserves an extra piece of cake.
French linguist Jean-Francois Champollion (*1790) deciphered the Egyptian hieroglyphs. Not completely on his own. He received some help. From a stone!
The Rosetta Stone; thanks to which he unraveled many ancient mysteries.

Also very mysterious are models Carla Bruni (*1967) and Holly Madison (*1979). Excellent football trainer Vincente del Bosque (*1950) trained a lot of models in his life, yet none as extravagant as these two ladies.
