The boy shows the way; the girl follows. Shown on most panels on this site.
The girl has to dress up, not the boy. Try to find a boy with a distinct hair-dress. It is close to impossible. On modern iconized panels, the hair is sometimes the only gender signal left.
This isn’t the most user friendly of sites but inside it is a wealth of information. Especially if you are interested in Egyptology or Archaeology.
Tutankhamun: Anatomy of an Excavation is ambitious in its scope but simple in its aims: to make the complete records of Howard Carter’s excavation of the tomb of Tutankhamun available on these web pages. It is astonishing, but no longer acceptable, that some eighty years and thousands of articles, hundreds of books, and dozens of exhibitions after the discovery of the tomb, this most famous event in the history of Egyptian archaeology has not yet been fully published. The documentation is presented in its original form and all, scholars, interested members of the public and school students, can consult it. We hope that this will help bring the knowledge and love of ancient Egypt to everybody.

The Writings on the Stall collects writings found in public restrooms. Why?
One day I, Jonathan Horak (Janitor in Chief), was musing at the writings on the stalls when one in particular immediately drew my attention. I started thinking not of what it read but more of what stalls can reflect in general society: a whole lot.
They serve as (informal) forums for politics, pop culture, humor, and so forth. What better, then, than to bring the best of these writings out to the world over this thing we call the Internet? Thoughts and ideas that once were localized can now be made globally available. Huzzah!
Here are a few examples:

Before you condemn a man, walk a mile in his shoes.
That way, if he doesn’t like what you have to say, at least you’ll be a mile away and have his shoes.
