I’ll Make A Man Out Of You | Mulan.

You must be swift as a coursing river, with all the force of a great typhoon. With all the strength of a raging fire, mysterious as the dark side of the moon.

*hears first .003 seconds of this song* *kicks down door* LET’S GET DOWN TO BUSINESS

it’s really great how batman’s tragic backstory steeped in wealth turned him into an asshole with no regard for societal order but he’s a hero but almost every batman villain’s tragic backstory steeped in poverty turned them into assholes with no regard for societal order and so they’re villains

It’s okay to change your identity. It’s okay to discover new and different versions of yourself and it is okay to move forward and completely change your identities as they come and go and are. To be human is to be fluid, to change. You are not invalid for doing so.

The Ten Plagues of Egypt shown in Dreamworks’ The Prince of Egypt

I’m trying to remember now… I watched a really interesting documentary about the plagues of Egypt and many of them connected to each other with a real scientific basis.

The first plague of water turning to blood was very likely an algae bloom. Certain species can in fact turn the water blood red under the right conditions. Frogs follows this because the water would have lost all oxygen killing the fish in it and driving out any animals that could leave it in mass migration. Lice also stems from this blood red water because people relied on the river for bathing. Afraid to bathe in this seemingly cursed water, hygiene declines allowing for the easier spread of exoparasites like lice and fleas. Now remember what I said about the fish all dying? You have tons of rotting fish on the banks. What does all that rotting meat attract? The next plague- flies. Now flies carry a lot of bacteria and they don’t just eat the rotting flesh. Some of them bite the livestock too. Due to lack of clean water these animals immune systems are already down. Throw flies into it? Now you have livestock dying, which brings us to the next plague- boils. When you have rotting fish and now dead and dying livestock, the smell is probably getting horrendous, so some people are sent to deal with disposing of them as well as butchering animals to save what meat they can. There are a couple illnesses which can pass from cattle to humans. The first symptom is often boils and blisters on the hands.

So what about the last 4 plagues? Rain of fire and darkness would almost certainly have been a meteor that hit a nearby mountain and the flaming rubble that rained down… And once the flaming rubble stopped there would have been enough dust in the air to obscure the sun. Locusts are kind of the odd ball out falling between rain of fire and darkness. There are regular book years for locusts and it was probably just bad luck that the same time all this was going on was a boom year for locusts.

So now the final plague of the death of all the first borns. If we take this literally, there is no logical explanation. However if we assume it was large numbers of infants and children dying vs just the first born this makes more sense. Remember you have flies and parasites spreading disease, the death of livestock and fish as well as loss of grain to locusts has caused a food shortage so people are starving, now you throw in poor air quality. While adults had the body mass to deal with starvation and disease, and were better able to tolerate the dusty air than a child who’s lungs are still developing, kids and infants don’t have this luxury. Their tiny bodies are taxed to the limit and so they start dying in record numbers.

So there you go, all 10 plagues explained by 3 natural disasters happening in a fairly short time frame.

Holy Moses. That was INCREDIBLE.

Haha no pun intended? :p glad you found it interesting. Wish I could remember the name of the really good biblical archeology series I found. It’s full of fascinating info!

Pun fully intended. Let me know if you do!

I met “Buddy” the beautiful Red-tailed Hawk yesterday at the Los Angeles Bird Fest. He had just been spritzed with water to keep cool, so you can see water beads on his frontside.

i’m not kidding though. i loathe vegangelicals with every fiber of my being, so if you are a vegangelical we will not get along. vegan, fine, do your thing, but if you try to push it on others then not only are you a sanctimonious asshat, you lack even a ground-level understanding of class and disability.
