Going to Ground

Traveling, with dodgy internet.  I think I'm going to ground for a couple of days, or maybe weeks.  Look for me in two weeks, or maybe three, or maybe less.  Meanwhile, I leave you with fa (supposed) factoid, and some questions.  The factoid, if it is one: I am advised that among the grave goods found with the mummies of Egyption pharaohs, we find contraceptives.  This prompts at least three questions:
  • Why do you need contraceptives in the afterlife?  Are they afraid of too many little pharaohs running around?
  • What does an ancient Egyptian contraceptive look like?
  • Why would a pharaoh need a contraceptive anyway?
Okay, maybe it is an Egyptian Urban Myth,
