Burg Sooneck, Germany (by armxesde) (All things Europe)
I do not know any other medieval castle that was destroyed as many times as the castle in Burg Sooneck, Germany was. The castle was built in the 13th century and since that time it suffered from such popular 'royal stars' as Rudolf I who played a vital role in establishing the Habsburg dynasty and Louis XIV of France, the descendent of the House of Habsburg.

Goodbye to my favorite science officer. Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock on the original Star Trek series, died today. Nimoy invented the Vulcan salute himself. He was inspired by the Jewish Priestly Blessing he had seen at an Orthodox synagogue.
