Apollo (/a.pól.lɔːn/; Greek: Ἀπόλλων, Apollōn) is one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology. The ideal of the kouros (a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, poetry, and more. Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister, the chaste huntress Artemis. Apollo is known in Greek-influenced Etruscan mythology as Apulu.

So I was filtering through twitter and was really confused by this:

It just didn’t seem real. Did everyone get put in the box?

Yes. Yes they did.

I couldn’t stop laughing at how many people got shoved into the box.

There’s a 3 minute video how what happened at the bottom of the sbnation link here.


See What Makes Owls So Quiet and So Deadly

For owls, life and death relies on the ability to control noise. Owl wings and feathers have special adaptations to muffle their sound. It’s stealth, not speed that makes them deadly.

How do owls use their fuzzy feathers to stealthily stalk their prey? Watch the latest #DeepLook video, brought to you by @kqedscience and @pbsdigitalstudios.

Falcons Imprison Prey To Feed Fresh Meat To Hungry Newborns

Falcons living on Morocco’s barren island of Mogador apparently like to feed thier offspring the freshest of meet. In fact, biologists say it’s not uncommon for Falcon parents to “imprisoning” smaller birds, holding them for several days before killing and feeding them to their young.

Prey storage is common practice among some birds, including owls that routinely pack away dead mice for winter. And previous research indicates Eleonora’s falcons have been observed hoarding catches of up to 20 dead birds during the migration season when prey is plentiful.

But storing live snacks appears to be a relatively new behavior to science.

Researchers found small migratory birds trapped in crevices, presumably by Eleonora’s falcons who were saving the prey to feed to their young.   (Photo : Abdeljebbar Qninba)
