Descartes's Mechanical Philosophy.     According to French philosopher René Descartes (1596-1650), the universe operated as a continuously running machine which God had set in motion. Since he rejected Newton's theory of gravity and idea of a vacuum in space, Descartes argued that instead the universe was composed of a "subtle matter" he named "plenum," which swirled in vortices like whirlpools and actually moved the planets by contact. Here, these vortices carry the planets around the Sun. by doreen.m

According to Roman legend, Bacchus, the god of wine, had been insulted by a mortal, and vowed that he would unleash his sacred tigers on the next mortal he passed.  That mortal was a maiden named Amethysta. In order to protect her from Bacchus’ tigers, the  goddess Diana turned her into a quartz statue.  Upon seeing this, Bacchus was so remorseful that he wept tears of wine over the maiden. The grapes from the wine turned the statue of Amethysta by Divonsir Borges

In 1957, MGM was branching into TV productions. Louis B Mayer was long gone and the studio was struggling to make budget - TV seemed the answer. They looked to their vaults for some of the big movie hits that could make it on a TV series. Peter Lawford and Phyllis Kirk were signed to play the roles of Nick and Nora Charles - they had a Wire-Fox terrier named Asta as well! by erna

All I know is it has been following me for days. I don't know what /it/ is, or why it's following me, but I hate it. I don't even know how got here. I sprint into the camp, which I've been headed to for days on a whim-- a hope that maybe it could be a safe haven. I've heard stories: this crippled kid named Basil who I was convinced was obsessed with me had been telling me constantly to go there for the summer. That was before they took my mom, before I was alone. I don't remember any of the past two or three years, but I know that I have to get here. Out of reflex that I don't understand, I push toward the creature with my hand, and the ground moves to push it backwards. As I pass the gates, the monster tries to follow me, but it slams into some unseen force. Filled with exaustion and sheer relief, I collapse to the ground, trying to catch my breath. I feel a tap on my shoulder, and jump, grasping my knife. "Who...who are you?" I question. I'm terrified of all these faces surrounding me, but again, out of a reflex I can't explain, my voice is calm and my hand is steady. "What was that??" by LiesbethLap

They had set up a post office, a blacksmith, stores, a hotel and the Blackdom Baptist Church, which also served as the schoolhouse. By the 1920s a severe drought led settlers to abandon the town. by jodi
