Royal Albert Hall, London, England

Image Description Here
A famous and widely bootlegged concert by Bob Dylan at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester on 17 May 1966 was mistakenly labeled the 'Royal Albert Hall' the place you see here. Dylan did perform here, it just wasn't the famous 'Judas' concert.
Image Description Here
Some highlights from this joint. September 1963 The Beatles and The Rolling Stones performed on the same bill for the only time. - 1966, Bob Dylan performs. - 1969, Pink Floyd performed at the Albert Hall and received a life-time ban for setting two cannons off during their show. - Jimi Hendrix performed on 18 and 24 February 1969 with The Jimi Hendrix Experience. - Janis Joplin performed on 21 April 1969 with her Kozmic Blues Band. - Led Zeppelin performed on 9 January 1970, footage of which was filmed for a planned documentary. Though no documentary was ever made due to the poor quality of the film, the material was re-mastered over thirty years later and virtually the entire show was released on the Led Zeppelin DVD

Let's See! Let's See... (Photo: Josh Harmony)
Two common Myths that you should stop worrying about:
Myth#1: Reading in dim light ruins your eyesight: You can get eyestrain and have difficulty focusing when trying to read in poor lighting, but these symptoms have no permanent effect on eyesight. One current theory holds that nearsightedness (myopia) might be caused by reading in dim light or holding books too close to the face. But consider this: rates of myopia are increasing and are higher now then they were centuries ago when people read by candlelight. What's more, the BMJ researchers found hundreds of expert opinions that conclude that reading in dim light doesn't permanently hurt your eyes.
(I say it is still not that great of an idea to do it though... -ed)

Myth#2: Shaving causes hair to grow back faster or coarser: No, it does not. This popular notion was disproved as early as 1928 and more recent studies have confirmed that shaving has no effect on hair growth (or regrowth), write the BMJ investigators. They speculate that when shaved hair regrows, it lacks the fine taper seen at the end of unshaven hair, making it appear coarser. And the fact that it hasn't been exposed to light may make it seem darker than other hair.
