Floods in various areas could have contributed to many Great Flood stories in many cultures...

8.2 Kiloyear
Just before the 8,200 year cold event, around 8,400 years ago, the Black Sea, which was a fresh water lake at the time, filled from Mediterranean Sea8,2. This event is only the most recent of many catastrophic flooding events due to the melting of the glaciers after the LGM. The Baltic Sea, was a lake until 9,200 years ago, when it was finally connected to the Atlantic Ocean. These flooding events and , perhaps others, due to rising sea level are probably the cause of multiple “Great Flood” stories that populate early writings like the Noah’s Flood story in the Bible and Torah and the older Gilgamesh story.

Feeling like a woman...

As an airplane is about to crash, a female passenger jumps up frantically and announces, “If I’m going to die, I want to die feeling like a woman.”
She removes all her clothing and asks, “Is there someone on this plane who is man enough to make me feel like a woman?”
A man stands up, removes his shirt and says, “Here, iron this!”.

“My teenage daughter came home in a rage.
‘I’ve just done sex education in school today, Dad! You lied to me! You told me if I have sex before my sixteenth birthday, my boyfriend will die!’
I put down my paper: ‘Oh, he will, sweetheart, he will.’ ”

Silence and Remembrance


    November pierces with its bleak remembrance
    Of all the bitterness and waste of war.
    Our silence tries but fails to make a semblance
    Of that lost peace they thought worth fighting for.
    Our silence seethes instead with wraiths and whispers,
    And all the restless rumour of new wars,
    The shells are singing as we sing our vespers,
    No moment is unscarred, there is no pause,
    In every instant bloodied innocence
    Falls to the weary earth, and whilst we stand
    Quiescence ends again in acquiescence,
    And Abel’s blood still cries in every land
    One silence only might redeem that blood
    Only the silence of a dying God.
    (Malcolm Guite, from 'Sounding the Seasons' )
