Worship Chaos

Royalty and Rubes

In ultra bad-ass news today, archaeologists have discovered an intact, ancient Egyptian tomb in the Valley of the Kings. This would be the first since the discovery of King Tut in 1922...and this was found, accidently, just five metres away. Zahi Hawass, Egypt's chief archaeologist, says they "look royal", but may just be nobles, but Bob Partridge, of Ancient Egypt magazine, said it could possibly be the tomb of Queen Nefertiti, whose tomb has yet to be found. Even it it's Joe Nobody, it's an incredible find.

In ultra dumb-ass news, an Orange County (California) woman who claimed she'd been kidnapped and raped at gunpoint by 6 men has a small problem: the video tape she shot with them, clearly showing her extremely willing participation, without force or guns. Tamara Anne Moonier, mother of two, apparently decided to have a night of fun with these guys, and later told cops she'd been through hell, and later used funds from a victims’ assistance program to move to a new apartment. When the guys were picked up, they willingly gave the tape over...and cops refused to file charges against them. They are, though, charging her with filing false police reports, committing perjury and stealing funds from a taxpayer-funded victims’ program. Best part? When confronted with the tape, she refused to recant her charges. Here's the sad part: without the tape, these guys could have gone to prison for life, but she'll face a maximum of 44 months for her crimes (and that, only because of the theft of the money).

Got up, got to the farm, shovelled a yard of gravel. Left, got a second yard, came back and shovelled that, too. Started a new batch of fruit wine, then spent a couple hours shovelling chicken shit out of the coop.

Needless to say, I am all shovelled out.

A little down on the world at the moment. Maybe I should go take my meds.

Cripes...here's a thought, why not just ASK people what/how they think of you, if you're so interested? Enough with the "johari" links, y'all.

You know what? You wanna tell me what you think of me, good or bad, you go right ahead. Absolute freedom to say whatever you want, no recriminations. No, I'm not making the comments screened or anonymous, 'cause if you won't stand up for what you say, then you don't need to be saying it.
