"Time to put a team together and do our best to protect buildings, bridges, and art before the Nazis destroy everything."

"So you want to go into a war zone with some architects and artists and tell our boys what they can and cannot blow up?"

Centrum will certainly recognize the line, "You can destroy an entire generation of people's culture, it's as if they never existed."
For the record, my grandfather was one of those people in real life (and it wasn't just one team).

Homo superior has begun to emerge, starting with a Chinese boy who can see in complete darkness. "'They told me he would grow out of it and that his eyes would stop glowing and turn black like most Chinese people but they never did,' his dad said in a video." He'll probably grow into shooting laser beams from them, perhaps around puberty.

Weird that it was dropped there this year, yet claims the area in 2012? Parallel dimension artifact slipping through?

I would think that like tombstones, it's appropriate to leave carving the date until the time it's actually about to be "used".

Claimed in 2012; eldritch law allows up to a year to notify the inhabitants of their new overlord.

Skateboarding mice taught to leap ramps and ring of fire.

Now that is awesome. Apparently some of our mice overlords have decided to join human pop culture. Either that or it's some elaborate social experiment.
