The Viking sword entangled in jewelry containing the Valknut Symbol. A symbol comprising three interlocked triangles, the Valknut is one of the most enigmatic symbols connected with Norse mythology. The symbol has been found on a number of memorial stones and rune stones from the Viking Age. It also appears on a number of Germanic objects, such as cremation urns of the Anglo Saxons. However, the term ‘Valknut’ used to describe the symbol is a modern Norwegian invention, evolving from the combination of Old Norse words, ‘Valr’ meaning slain warriors and ‘knut’ meaning knot.
__
No one knows exactly what the Valknut represented for the ancient people, but a few theories have been put forth. According to one, the Valknut refers to ‘Hrungnir’s Heart’. The basis for this assertion is the 13th-century book, Prose Edda that describes the giant Hrungnir’s heart as made of stone and having three sharp corners. Another theory connects the Valknut with the Norse God Odin and his powers to bind and unbind the mind of men. The symbol has been found often in art depicting Odin and is believed to represent the afterlife.
__
Some theories connect it with reincarnation and consider it a talisman against evil. The nine sides or nine points of the three triangles are associated with the Nine Worlds of the Norse mythology. Interlinking of the three triangles is symbolic of inter-connectedness of the 3 realms of heavens, earth, and hell.

Magical Horus stela

On the front of the small stela is Harpocrates, executed in frontal view, in very high relief.
He is naked except for a collar, and wears the juvenile side lock. An undetermined wing-like object is visible behind the left shoulder. He holds an oryx-gazelle in the right hand, and a lion plus two snakes in the left one. A dwarf with a necklace (in frontal view) stands beside him at the left side; a scorpion is depicted above the dwarf. Harpocrates stands on a ledge formed by two crocodiles, facing opposite sides. Underneath two more crocodiles are incised. The usual head of Bes is broken off, only the beard is still visible.
The back has an inscription in eight lines; above is a row of gods: from left to right: a pathaikos (dwarf god), Amun-Re(?), an undetermined figure, Osiris, a king(?), Min, Horus, Thoth and some kind of animal. The inscription is continued on the bottom of the stela with three lines, and on both sides with one badly legible column each.
The modelling is rather crude; the hieroglyphs are more evenly incised.

#LateNightHistory — Elvis Presley Had Great Sandwich Taste While Ernest Hemingway Didn’t

Saw former MLB right-hander Phil Hughes tweet out a picture of his peanut butter and pickle sandwich on a grilled bun and it got me thinking...is this a combination people genuinely indulge in? It appears I did not know of this phenomenon and it has a cult-like following for its tastiness. Don’t get me wrong I am a PB&J and fluff connoisseur — and open to explore new combinations. Elvis Presley swapped the pickles for ripe bananas. The PBB was his favorite sandwich, one that rumored the king of rock’n’roll would board his private jet named after his daughter and fly across the country to consume. Ernest Hemingway however, didn’t use pickles or bananas at all, but vowed for large cut onion slices. A New York Times article quipped, “One of the highest points in the sandwich-maker’s art. We call it the Mount Everest Special. For Commanders only.” Hemingway certainly awarded the praise and adopted the snack as his signature dish — without a care in the world of anyone’s disapproval -

I am a huge WWII buff. I was so intrigued by this book. It starts with the women spies of WWI and continues through WWII. It talks about all aspects of life as a spy. Throughout the chapters there are many stories of women and describes their lives and their impacts on the war. Very intriguing.

A bunch of buttons.  This guy wore a lot of blazer jackets to lose a bunch of cuff buttons. The top row middle is the oldest button in there, and had the lowest number on the machine.  There is a nice big chunk of fabric about 150-170 yr old still left on one of those buttons.

Picture of a wrangler dodging a bison being loaded on a train from the Pablo herd in the early 1900s. Michel Pablo spent 6 years rounding up bison on parts of our current day ranch to sell to Canada to help save some of the last genetic remnants of the American Plains Bison. Today we are working hard to restore the herd Pablo once had here on the same piece of land within the Flathead Reservation.  By the end of our fencing work, and in another few years, we will have built around 80 miles of fence across two ranches to continue accommodating the growth of our herds.

The infamous R504 Kolyama Highway in Russia has a dark secret hidden literally right under the service. The expansive 1,200 mile or 2,000Km stretch of highway was constructed by Russian slaves snd if you dont know anything about Siberia. It's one of the coldest places in the world. Due to the extreme cold many of the under equiped prisoners died. Instead of a proper burial they were instead ground up and used to pave the road. There's suspected to be thousands of dead unrecovered corpses in the road and it has coined the nickname highway of bones all in the name of gold.
