    Dressing up in something else had that effect on me.

    How come people can’t climb on Stonehenge now or at least get close enough to point a cross at it?

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    So, a 4,000-year-old teenage skeleton was unearthed near Stonehenge.

    Scientists are still open for the possibility that this is a more modern skeleton of someone who died of boredom, possibly from listening to some hippy chick explaining her celtic past lives.

    Drat, I was 35 years late when I (emphasis on “I”) went to Stonehenge! (Not that I wanted to climb it then anyway.)

    Before “orange” became the name of a color, that color was called yellow-red or red-yellow, depending on the hue. The fruit’s name, naranj, was modified a bit and became the English “orange”.

    And I don’t think there was much celebration of Halloween until the 16th century. In Protestant dominated England, Halloween was superseded by Guy Fawkes Day after 1605.

    I observed cows on a farm once, and never thought about their interactions.

    The first time I visited Stonehenge, people could walk through the site and touch, but not climb, the stones. For my second visit 25 years later, we were all behind the rope, which serves to protect the stones from vandalism and erosion. It was awesome to touch the stones and imagine them intact while visualizing the rituals and “science” that happened there centuries ago. It was harder to do that 100 feet away, so I feel fortunate in that way.

    But-will those same kids in costume eat their two veg? Or, might they be more willing to be social if they dress like Bruce Wayne? “Alfred, please bring me a whole milk Strawberry Quick, in a frosty glass.”

    This could explain why Ripley recently said that in Europe carrots were all purple before the 16th century.

    And that’s why hair that is orange, is called red.

    So one cow said the the other, “Don’t you feel silly?”The other cow said, “I feel udderly ridiculous.”And then the sheep said to the horse, “Don’t you think that was a BAAAD joke?”To which the horse replied, “Neigh”.

    Thankfully the Stonehenge ban was put in place before the age of Instagram and Tik Tok.

    We eat them, we drink their milk. There are so many mad cows, we call it a disease. And I hear them talking about it. I speak moo.

    This will be a much less interesting site without @stevesilver48. He is one of the posters which brought many of us here each day. It certainly was not the comic!

    The history of the color blue is pretty interesting. There was no word for it until modern times, with the exception of the Egyptians.

    This is also an interesting story about color by one of my favorite podcasts:

    And the color pink had no name until it was given the name by reference to the flower, “pinks.”
