Why Our World Would End If A Daft Misconception Disappeared

Were the pyramids built by slaves?

No. As the Pyramids are understood by many, trembling and fearful ranks of Egyptian slave men pushed and hauled giant blocks to mark tremendous points of energy on Earth, triangle-shaped tombs for departed leaders. We can imagine slave girls in leather brassieres and skirts of bird-feather and twine, Egyptian beauties shimmering with flesh soaked by the never-shrinking sun, drunk on wine, a vision of an apparatus with no more technology than what could float a raft in the river or raise a shelter in the vast desert.

All false, and hung on a myth that keeps humans organizing themselves like a slave assembly, where all power and competence are enacted as though by the living hand of God–it is a design conceived with the Pharaohs’ tombs in the mind’s eye.

As Ancient Egypt exerted its dominance, so too did reigning attitudes about a solidarity of people which became absolutely entrenched by the Pyramid’s sway, infiltrating the essence of the civilized world, as many understand it, an effort of many slaves.

The most earnest high school history teacher, the librarian who holds a catalog of records in disruptively accurate bookshelves, the Egyptian fantasist with his movie monster posters; all three present the mythology that the Pyramids were built with an outpouring of sweat and single-mindedness, the impossible, expansive tombs built from heavy rocks in cubes, hoisted by rope and ancient pulleys. Into the shape of three-dimensional Pyramids were constructed elaborate tombs, laid for departed Pharaohs of renown. Gizeh is the best-known.

It is the same will to organization and legacy throughout the Western world in the twenty-first century, where gentlemen in running shoes or luxury cars or perhaps dining in a capacity to manage what others might characterize as savage, to have plates and pints brought round by pleasant servers, the bosom and the heart. Gizeh’s tomb marked the first wine-and-dine.

Where will it end? As long as there are workers who are unsung, the dominion of the ancient Pharaohs will maintain its control. Update your browser.

The above is intended as an aside only. The International Day of Charity is observed annually on 5 September.

10 Freaky Reasons Cupcakes Could Get You Fired

My parents visited a favorite spot of ours in the province of Ontario, the town of Orillia. As a treat, they left me with twenty-five Canadian dollars on a prepaid card that can be redeemed at Canada’s popular franchise of coffee shops, Tim Horton’s.

Tuesday morning I went in to see that Tim’s “smile cookies” are back, which are cinnamon cookies with the icing of a smile atop them–:). That evening I bought one to take to a friend, as I am a steadfast believer in the power of kindness.

As I’m in the role of SMM I occasionally draw inspiration from the work for in the blog I keep, which is what you’re reading.

September 2018 I joined for the second time in the third of three-month-long “tea parties” organized by WordPress blogger The Little Mermaid.

For September, the theme for her tea party is the subject of “food.”

I have enjoyed browsing a few of the tea party posts. My curiosity is piqued for what could be around the corner as The Little Mermaid posts a fourth tea party.

I have also reflected on a new idea for a post.

The Glass is Half Empty

1.You’re sugarcoating the truth, and it can come out easy over cupcakes in the office cafeteria party.
2.You’re entering a relationship with a girl who bakes for you and is challenging your fashion sense.
3.You’re juggling naysayers and gossips.
4.You’re coming home from work only to watch syndicated sitcom programming on late night cable TV… again. If you’re lucky, you have a dog.
5.You’re setting a bad example.

The Glass is Half Full

6.Your parents are out of town, her parents are out of town… when the cat’s away, the mice will play.
7.You’re asking can you spare a dollar.
8.You hope to set your Facebook privacy settings to Who Can See Your Friends… Only Me in order to discourage gawkers.
9.You and the girl baking for you are both Irish.
10.The cupcakes are a vanilla mix and seem to be challenging you to up your game.

In all seriousness, 15 September marked the International Day of Democracy

You are probably familiar, to one extent or another, with the troubles in the White House. I became interested in that when Facebook came under scrutiny for the suggestion of its misappropriated influence on the 2016 US Election.

About 15 September, the United Nations has observed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for seventy years now.

The International Day of Democracy observes the importance of a democratic government for each individual member of the United Nations.

I also observed on this day the reality that I had reached the age of forty-one and a half years old. I feel reasonably good, interested in life in general and grateful for my work opportunities and for my leisure time.

The two people my blog most impacts are women in my family, my mom, and my sister. Both of them respond with compliments about what I do on WordPress. That being said, I should say there is one caveat–if you are a blogger, the feedback afforded you should above all things be the following: honest. Unless the feedback given you by people whose opinion you’re soliciting about your blog is honest responses, no amount of flattery no matter how smooth is going to help you up your game as a blogger.

I am also appreciative of those who “like,” “follow” and/or comment. For that, thank you.

nothing
i would eat, nothing fit for one such as i
but i wonder
where it has gone
blizzard’s escape, but too
safety the critter returned, its store
undisturbed.
until today, when we open its retreat to the air
above, that both we and it
breathe.  it will have to live elsewhere, i think, cold or

otherwise
