LANGUAGE HAT points to the most useless thing you'll love today (if you're reading this blog, we're assuming you're chuffed by this kind of thing): Akkadian texts read aloud by expert scholars. Just what you've been looking for: the epic of Gilgamesh, Hammurabi's code and more, in the original language, now in convenient audio form! Click, close your eyes and imagine ancient Babylon. Fascinating. How can you not love the internet?"
