This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.
Uncrate.com encourages you to pay homage to some of your favorite dudes in a totally historical way with Replaceface Prints. These clever works of art put the faces of some of modernity's most recognizable guys — Bill Murray, Steve Jobs, Chuck Norris, Ricky Gervais, and David Bowie among them — into historical paintings of various generals and conquerors. We've linked to the art prints, which vary in size from roughly 8" x 9" to 28" x 32", but they also offer them framed, as stretched canvases, as stationery cards, as throw pillows, and as cases and skins for the iPhone and iPod touch.
