Personal Museum

The Tate Gallery proposes you to make your own personal collection from its paintings.You can put a title from your choice and send it by e-mail to your friends..



In the picture above we can see Ophelia, one of my favourite paintings, painted by Sir John Everett Millais (1829-1896).
He was a member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood.As you can read in the ArtCyclopedia: Their goal was to develop a naturalistic style of art, throwing away the rules and conventions that were drilled into students' heads at the Academies. Raphael was the artist they considered to have achieved the highest degree of perfection, so much so that students were encouraged to draw from his examples rather than from nature itself; thus they became the "Pre-Raphaelites".

This post is extremely enlightened. I don't find any nerdness to write down as a comment of such thing.

Antares, I beg you to write again about stupid things.

Meteorismo,

Don't worry, you know I post stupid things usually, but I like to talk about serious things but from time to time ,so as to people think that I'm an intellectual..

Sorry, the correct sentence would be:

Don't worry, you know I post stupid things usually, but I like to talk about serious things from time to time in order to people think that I'm an intellectual..

Any other correction will be wellcome.

Corrections from a nerd to a moron:

The sentence:
"...so as to people think that I'm an intellectual..."

Would be OK this way:

"...so as people think that I'm an intellectual..."

The sentence:

"...in order to people think that I'm an intellectual..."

Woul be OK this way:

"...in order to make people think that I'm an intellectual..."

The word "wellcome" must be written as "welcome".

Conclusion:

Your nerdity and moronness is out of any possible hesitation.

Meteorismo, not only you are a nerd, but also a lerd(new english word which means..)
Correction to your corrections:

"Your nerdity and moronness is out of any possible hesitation".

Hesitation is not the proper word in this context; it would be more suitable the following:

"There is no doubt about your nerdity and moronness".

Best wishes.
