Ancient City Discovered Underwater Solves Enigma That Puzzled Egyptologists For Years

“Thonis-Heracleion (the Egyptian and Greek names of the city) is a city lost between legend and reality. Before the foundation of Alexandria in 331 BC, the city knew glorious times as the obligatory port of entry to Egypt for all ships coming from the Greek world. It had also a religious importance because of the temple of Amun, which played an important role in rites associated with dynasty continuity. The city was founded probably around the 8th century BC, underwent diverse natural catastrophes, and finally sunk entirely into the depths of the Mediterranean in the 8th century AD.

Prior to its discovery in 2000 by the IEASM, no trace of Thonis-Heracleion had been found.”

“Bitch Planet is not so far away as some might think, guys. The things that scare me about this comic are the same things that scared me about the Handmaid’s Tale. I can already see the roots of that bullshit in the society we inhabit. And it scares the fuck out of me.

Which is why I’m not gonna be quiet anymore.”

Here Are Some Paintings Of A Woman Riding Aristotle Like A Pony

Mallory Ortberg is a national treasure.

“You’re undoubtedly considered by your friends and wishers-of-well to be a reasonably smart person. Most likely you consider yourself fairly well-read. Even an educated person.

And yet it is possible – even probable – that you were not aware, before this moment, that one of the most popular legends and artistic motifs of the Northern Renaissance was the tale of a woman named Phyllis who once rode the Greek philosopher Aristotle like a pony.

But she did. She rode him. Like a pony.”

Rode him like a pony. I love Mallory Ortberg’s work.
