Some people, however, are not particularly enamoured with decoding messages. They just want to look at something and have it be immediately visible to them. While I was at the lovely Washington University in St. Louis returning the paperwork that I acquired during Friday's work-related-activities, I took an hour to just walk around and see what there is to see. In the courtyard of McMillan Hall, there is a row of stone blocks with numbers on them. I presume they're years, but haven't a clue why they're there. Even if you don't know either, you can appreciate the simple fact that they exist (unencoded) in today's picture of the day.

In case you're wondering, the shadow on the block was not because of me or my camera. I checked.
