Ra The Cat

Wednesday, 20 March 2019

Okay, so like over a thousand years ago B.C. there was this Egyptian sun god named Ra, and he was pretty powerful. You’ve probably heard of him.

There was also a god named Apep or Apophis or something. He was a snake, the god of the underworld in charge of the forces of chaos and evil. The sun god had had enough of Apep‘s assholery and decided to take him out. Ra heard that Apep liked hanging out around a certain sacred sycamore tree.

Ra thought about it for a while, and instead of burning Apep to cinders with his sun god eyes, he decided to turn himself into a cat with a beard and a knife, find the sacred sycamore tree, and kill him. (He forgot that cats don’t have hands, but he ignored that part.)

Apparently Ra cut Apep pretty good, but he didn’t kill him, so he dropped the cat costume, went back to being the sun god and pretended it never happened. I think he was embarrassed.

Under a sacred sycamore the sun god Ra, in the form of a cat, slays the snake Apep (or Apophis), god of the underworld and symbol of the forces of chaos and evil. Detail of a wall painting from the tomb of Inherkhau (TT359).

Remote Asteroid K19OICU812 named “Kermit2019”

Wednesday, 13 March 2019

Okay, it’s not an asteroid. I made that up. It’s a frog that was sucked into the upper atmosphere by a hurricane, froze solid, then fell from the sky. It reached a high velocity and embedded itself into concrete pavement.

Okay, I made that up, too. It’s a masonry term called “frogging,” but it applies to concrete finishes as well, and is a sign of good luck.

Okay, I made that up. Those may be my pants, but they’re not my shoes.

Woman Attacked For Taking A Selfie In A Zoo.

Tuesday, 12 March 2019

She entered the zoo enclosure illegally, turned her back on a predator to take a selfie and fortunately survived the attack. The jaguar was held for questioning and released on its own recognizance. Authorities are trying to determine if this was a hate crime as the jaguar is black.

“We are building an army of young people to stop climate change and create millions of good jobs in the process. This dark time in America must come to an end.”

Sara Blažević and Varshini Prakash started the Sunrise Movement. Both are amazing pieces of work.

Sara Blažević, a student from Swarthmore College said, “Communities all over the world are currently feeling the effects of extreme climate change and environmental injustice. This global crisis will only continue growing unless society’s power-holders throw their weight behind solutions to climate change, instead of remaining complicit with environmental destruction.”
