The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family, after I posted aphotobeing shared by the page, “Being Classically Liberal“…
“Found lost dog (Wichita): Found this little guy yesterday. He has been roaming the streets in our neighborhood and we finally caught him. Possible abuse because he is aggressive. Want to rehome him since our dogs do not seem to like him and growls back at them. I think he would do good in a home with no kids and someone who can give him lots of love.”
Greg L.: Isn’t that a fox?
Rayn: A coyote. 🙂
Tammy S.: It’s not a dog?! So it can’t be in anyone’s home. Thought it was a dog. Well he/she belongs in the wild.
Rayn: This reminds me of another classic:
“Cat found! I found this guy the other day on my back porch. I tried feeding him and it turns out that he is not very friendly because I think he may be scared. Not quite sure the breed but I am assuming he is part Siamese. I have him in a crate because he is not really house broken. If he is yours please reply.”
Handprints in ancient cave art most often belonged to women, overturning the dogma that the earliest artists were all men.
Women made most of the oldest-known cave art paintings, suggests a new analysis of ancient handprints. Most scholars had assumed these ancient artists were predominantly men, so the finding overturns decades of archaeological dogma.
Archaeologists have found hundreds of hand stencils on cave walls across the world. Because many of these early paintings also showcase game animals—bison, reindeer, horses, woolly mammoths—many researchers have proposed that they were made by male hunters, perhaps to chronicle their kills or as some kind of “hunting magic” to improve success of an upcoming hunt. The new study suggests otherwise.
