Pyramids of Nubia

Pyramids of Nubia, y’all. A real thing, apparently, but probably not all clustered together like that. You can read more about it (and see the full-sized image) here, though the article is really more about cartography. Or printing.

Whatever. I found it in an image search and thought it was trippy.

Me, I’ve been playing Twitter like a slot machine addict today. Poking F5 and expecting something extraordinary to fall out. Any. Minute. Now.

Eh, I don’t suppose anyone’s interested in the full, unredacted Epstein flight log. First time the unredacted version has been released, I think. Nothing too interesting, that I saw. Roberts isn’t in it. Chuck Schumer (“Schumi”) is. So’s Trump (he said he took a flight home on Epstein’s plane once). I confess, my attention span for spreadsheets is really short.

Have a good weekend, everyone!

Now just stop. The only important and influential people or leaders who ever associated with J Epstein were DONALD TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!(see attached photo of them being in the same room) and Prince Andrew.
And screw that 4th Amendment thing about speedy trials for his chick moll Maxwell. We have enough evidence to lock her up for a year without a trial, and we can’t have a trial yet because we’re investigating her!

It’s dark and rainy and chilly in our tent here in east Texas, and we’re not coming home until America gets sane!

I think I should have checked the warranty on this tent. because we’re going to be here a while.

Last I heard about the Nubian pyramids was that they were in danger of drowning. Yeah, pyramids in the middle of the desert, getting flooded. Because heavy rains raised the southern Nile, these pyramids aren’t that far away from the river and not on high ground, and after 3000 years the locals haven’t figured out decent drainage.

I don’t have a twit account, but I do enjoy reading the adventures of President-Elect Dr. Stoaty Weasel.

In doing a Bing search for Nubian pyramids, amongst the results, to my surprise, was:
Buy Nubian Pyramid on Amazon | Low Prices for Nubian Pyramid
and yes, they sell an amazing (to me) variety of Nubian pyramids.

Nubian Pyramid schemes? Why yes!
I am interested in doing business in your countries, I am Dr. Ahmed Abacha, spouse of the late Nubian ruler Mrs Sani Abacha, who was killed in a plain crash leaving no hairs.

If you will agreeing to commit bank fraud with me to swindles the Bank of Upper Nubia out of legal funds, I will pay you a 10% portion of the funds, some $10,000,000 US dollars in worth.

May you be blesses, I await your answer.

A peaceful holiday moment from Gerard. Stoaty and he are my daily go-to for something a little different than the maddening crowd.

Here’s hoping that you and Uncle B have plenty of food in the larder, and are out shopping right now for whatever you can your hands on. The whole darn world is cutting off the UK because of the new Covid strain. 30 countries just so far this morning, and many more to follow. Nobody and nothing is going to the UK in any way, and nothing and nobody is getting out. And no politicians are screaming xenophobia this time.

Yeah, like that horse hasn’t bolted the barn.

I’m off for a covid test this afternoon, my HMO has asked everyone of a certain age or with underlying conditions to get tested so they have some idea of what they might by up against number-wise.

It’s all much like trying to nail Jell-o to a wall.

The UK hasn’t been punished enough yet for leaving the EU.

We’ll be at the woodshed door when you come out, we’re waiting for our turn to get our whuppin for voting for that guy in 2016, and again in 2020.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
