Antonii Jaxa coat of arms Griffin (he always published under a pseudonym). Channelling you, he was a friend of Ignacy Kraszewski. Jaxa's dad kicked the arse of Julius Caesar when Julius showed it at Danube. Julius gave him his sister for wife (they had one ??-ius or something), but then he kicked her out and took a beautiful Ukrain woman who gave him 20 sons: Jaxa and his brothers.

@Freedonia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaxa_(state) (Nicefor was from Jaxa family too - avoid people of this patronymic name; I think there's an error in wikipedia - the guy he murdered raped his sister, not daughter; last year a young talented Polish writer published a book about him - and Stalin and Rasputin... :|)

His sword is in Museo Nazionale del Bargello in Firenze.

Laugh a minute.

Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...well I have others.

I'm pretty agnostic about idiots. They are equal in my book. I try not to discriminate.
I do. There are flat friendly idiots and poisonous ones. It's better to avoid them.

Happy Ancient British bunny-worshipping tradition!

“ Historical accounts have suggested chickens and hares were too special to be eaten and were instead associated with deities – chickens with an iron age god akin to Roman Mercury, and hares with an unknown female hare goddess.”

Time for some Halloween costume ideas; this is from one of my favorite childhood books.

Check out the feet here, especially!

Those nails need clipping.

Here are the best Bible verses to read as Halloween approaches. "You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the Lord and the table of demons." "Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them."
