This is almost impossibly beautiful

The German government has been working on a Thesaurus Linguae Latinae so insanely comprehensive that it considers every usage of every word up to at least the third century.
They began on 1894, and published the volume for 'P' on 2010 (although they skipped over 'N' and will have to go back to it eventually, and there's some doubt about whether they'll be able to meet their 2050 deadline; at least they won't have to dedicate time to IT upgrades, as the entire project still runs on index cards and slips of paper).

Just thinking about it makes me happier.
