Congratulations to John C Stevenson! You have fewer CCP than AristotleCLONE has, and thus the least CCP of any user that I know of. submitted by TheRealMaestro to whatever

I edited my original post to correct my error; thank you.

To my knowledge, there is nobody left for John to defeat; he reigns supreme at the foot of the ranking. Incidentally, I hear that John should receive an engraved memorial from George Soros and Mrs Bill Clinton after he crosses the -4000 threshold for his Herculean accomplishment at the keyboard. The time is near.

My 19 year old Harriet is in much better health now: my thanks to Voat! submitted by TheRealMaestro to cats

TheRealMaestro 0 points 10 points (+10|-0) ago

Last week I had asked Voat for how best to help Harriet, my eldest cat who had until then been in perfect health though one day came home with an oily coat and low spirits. I am pleased to say that she recovers well; she climbs and bumps heads again, and has even wanted to go outside for a few minutes.

We have also discovered what had happened to Harriet as Wagner, one of my other cats, barged into my room to-day with a foul smelling fleck of grease on his thick coat. (I had naturally given him a Dawn bath at once; the grease had not spread, and he had not licked it, so we trust he should be well.) My father recognised the scent at once as the grease which he applies to his business trailer. Perhaps not incidentally, Harriet took ill shortly before my parents had left with that trailer for business purposes. It is a relief to have identified what has caused our 'kitten' this trouble, and also rescue one of our other cats before the same would happen to him.

Special thanks to @gazillions, @Charlez6, @badbear, @midnightblue1335, @I_Would_Gas_You, @sometimessage, @Octocopter, @6double5321, @littul_kitton, @Liberty4thewin, @Ampharias, @Fuster_Cluck, @jonny1313, @selpai, @GoogleHatesVoat, @monkeytennis, @Cat-hax, @dukey, @0011000100100111101, @pixelkitteh, @Sarcastatron_9000, @beece, @Doomking_Gridlock and @Der_Untergang for all of their support! Harriet and our family well appreciate it.

I regularly write using an ordinary pen, and find cursive not only more beautiful but also more natural and efficient to use than manuscript, that I reserve for labels or for those who do not understand cursive. It is less tiring to the hand to lift it fewer times, and the result also appears personally unique.

Since we discovered Earth has had a second "mini-moon" for more than a century, it's time to name it. What would you name it? submitted by chmod to space

TheRealMaestro 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

The only quasi-satellite of Earth that I know has been dignified with a common name is 3753 'Cruithne', for the fabulous first king of the Picts. In parallel to this I would propose, if any name, Fergus for the legendary founder of Scotland.

I am frankly horrified by recent attempts to name minor planets, peculiarly when the I.A.U. supposed Pink Floyd and Makemake as suitable names. I earnestly find that they would be better left nameless if not re-christened to better suite the Classical theme that the major planets are named by.

TIL that there are over 28 thousand sexes of split-gilled mushroom (Schizophyllus). submitted by TheRealMaestro to TIL

TheRealMaestro 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

The sexes are physically identical, as is typical amongst lower fungi, and distinguished only by a single gene; it is rather common for fungi to have three or four such indistinct sexes. The relationship of the cosmopolitan Schizophyllus to the genus Schizophrenus (native to North America but known elsewhere, peculiarly at university faculties) is currently unknown.

Does Chinese Civilization Come From Ancient Egypt? submitted by Kannibal to History

TheRealMaestro 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Partly as a personal affectation and partly to avoid the influence of recent politics, I enjoy collecting and reading history books produced from the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. In these works the notion that agriculture and letters appeared only once, in the banks of either the Nile or Euphrates, and thence spread out to all the world is a rather common one. Most authors into the 1920s and thirties continued to support this diffusionist model, and arguments discrediting it have never amounted to more than appeals to geographic distance. I feel pleased and almost vindicated to see these, as well as many historiographic ideas since abandoned, thus restored.
