Albrecht Dürer, design for tournament helmets in three elevations, Turnierhelme, around 1500 | Musée du Louvre, Département des Arts graphiques, Paris/Courtesy Germanisches Nationalmuseum Nürnberg.
Dürer was a gifted artist and an aspiring business man as well, his hometown Nuremberg the place to be, a rich, cultural metropolis at that time. These helmets must have been height of fashion in the arena.

Early Renaissance swag.

May God have mercy on your soul, Vladislav!

God did not intend for herbally-altered hot water to be conjoined with dairy is such a horrific fashion. Nature itself pays testament to the monstrosity of this action!

Shut up, all of you. Copious amounts of milk (better yet, cream) is the only proper way to enjoy most teas. 53 million Englishmen can’t be wrong.
