Could Queen Nefertiti's Tomb Reveal Secrets From Egypt's Shadowy Past?

She was married to one of the most eccentric pharaohs. But after his death she may have reigned on her own––as a man. If researchers have found her tomb, what’s inside could change Middle Eastern history.

Every time something is discovered in Egypt’s Valley of the Kings, the whispers begin. Is it the queen? Has she finally been found? They’re asking about Nefertiti, the legendary beauty who was married to one of ancient Egypt’s strangest pharaohs. Her burial site has never been found, and its location is one of the enduring mysteries in Egyptology.

The buzz is now as loud as ever, as scans of King Tut’s tomb indicate there may be hidden chambers behind sections of walls. Questions have inevitably arisen about possible links to Nefertiti, and whether archaeologists will peek behind the walls to find room after room filled with the dazzling grave goods of the long-lost queen. Read more.

A really cool journal article about reptile behavior!

In case you’re ever wondering “what does it mean when my reptile does [x behavior],” this is a very nice journal article from the journal of the British Veterinary Association. It is peer-reviewed and has a very nice chart of different behaviors and what they might indicate. Please keep in mind that all animals are different- but that said, this is a pretty good starting point for understanding reptile body language and how it’s different from mammals, birds, or other types of creatures kept as pets.

Also, in case you are wondering where I found this, it was linked in that baby alligator post that’s going around- this one here. This alligator is not happy! This is an alligator that’s closing its eyes to block out the visual stimuli- yeah, the mouth looks like a smile, but that’s just how alligator mouths are.

at In regards to Yuri on Ice the song

Hear me out. Okay for Yuuri’s Free skate song, Yuri on Ice. It’s so layered and interconnected. I’ve listened to this song ever since and wanted to do a little analysis of exactly which parts specifically are connected with each episode. (Ever since Victor was like, “Why’s your face so stiff/tense? You make it seem like you hated me when I first appeared in front of you) So here it is, I’m not even sure myself at this point but just my thoughts/rambles and I needed to get this out lol. (Btw, I’ve indicated the times so it may be good to listen to the song while you read this so you can hear the parts to it yourself too!)

00:00-00:53 (Pre-Anime-Ep 1) The Piano starts out by itself here – (When “Yuuri was fighting all by himself”) the keys are soft here but still beautiful in its regard. Yuuri is one of the top skaters so of course he can hold his own (melody in regards to the song). The only thing that was holding him back was his lack of confidence (which is indicated by the majority of soft notes).

00:54-1:17 Ep 1-3 - The violin comes in confidently with the drums (in a steady beat). This is where Victor’s sudden entrance comes in along with Yuuri’s support (all the love that surrounds him), his family and friends in the background. The drums remain a constant in this part nonetheless. This is the underlying support for Yuuri no matter which path he chooses (Ex. Mari’s talk with Yuuri). But so far, here the violin and piano’s sound is very distinct from each other as if it’s going at their own melody/pace. This is the part where Yuuri is still at unease in front of Victor. He’s a god/idol to him here still, so their melodies aren’t quite entwined yet. 

1:18-1:31 – Ep 4-7 – The violin and piano here finally starts out with the same note and are accompanying each other. But they aren’t quite there. The harmony is not as in depth and intricate yet.The piano is starting to be more confident in its tone though. This might be where Victor and Yuuri have had their talks (Ep 4 and 7) and  this is where Victor gets to know what Yuuri is really thinking. Their relationship and song really starts shifts at this part.

Title: Satan learns how to take a shower

Rating: PG:13, Natan 

Summary: Satan kind of likes dinner and finds a new way to tease natalie 

a/n: This is my first natan fic (oh lord what have i gotten myself into) and im trying to get back into the swing of things 


Natalie continued to cut up the vegetables in her hand as she read over the recipe she had displayed on her phone. She was determined to make this meal the best one yet, and prove Lucifer wrong. She could be a good cook if she tried hard enough.

The door to the bathroom slammed, indicating that he was out of the shower.

He walked through the kitchen with a towel wrapped around his waist and another hanging over his wet hair.

Ever since she introduced him to showering he probably took two a day now.

“Nice shower?” she snickered.

One more Top-O’-The-#Amp shot for TeleTuesday this week. Here’s my 1968 #Telecaster with its lovely #Jaykco strap sitting on its lovely ‘65 #Fender #Vibrolux #Reverb.

Our mutual IG friend, and inspirational #LesPaul owner @rpcc2 has tried this #guitar out, and I’m sure he will agree that it’s not the easiest guitar in the world to play! Mostly because the #frets are so low as to be only a mere illusion! They are basically an ephemeral indication of where frets *might* be located some day…should you ever choose to install them. They may as well be painted in for all the good they do! :D

BUT…if you can get past the fret (or more accurately the “#fretless”) situation, this guitar sounds fantastic…very raw and VERY #twangy thanks in part to its 1966-dated 1meg #CTS #potentiometers!
