Atlantis didn't sink; they just left.

Let us rejoice and let us sing
And dance and ring in the new
Hail Atlantis!

Best Princess Celestia: Atlantis didn't sink; they just left.


Yep, as documented in 2600VCS Cosmic Ark.

...based on insect remains found in a jar containing seeds of sweet peas discovered at the Bronze Age settlement of Akrotiri ...


Now that's interesting -- Bronze Age flower gardeners. Sweet Peas are unsuitable for food, they're poisonous.

Or maybe they ate Sweet Peas out of desperation if there was a famine?

They keep looking for Atlantis in the Mediterranean. They are never going to find it. Its in the Atlantic. The prefix Atlan is right in the name.

Southerners call Sugar Snap Peas "Sweet Peas"? That's just wrong. Sweet Peas are the ornamental plant Lathyrus spp.

Polish Hussar: I think time began on a Tuesday, very few people know that


Seventh-day Adventists are damn sure time began on the first day, Sunday, which is why they rest on the 7th day, Saturday.

I remember reading some tract where they prove that mankind has been faithful in observing the order of the days of the week since the creation (never restarted it by guessing) and thus if today is Saturday then there is some n such that God started creation exactly n*7 days ago.

They are all approximations.. Same goes for the atomic clock.

When the city of Atlantis stood serene above the sea
Long time before our time when the world was free
Those were the days

Golden cymbals flying on ocarina sounds
Before wild Medusa's serpents gave birth to Hell
Disguised as Heaven

Those were the days
Yes they were, those were the days
Those were their ways
Miracles everywhere, where are they now? They're gone

Those were their ways
Yes they were, those were their ways
Those were the days
Yes they were, those were the days

Tie your painted shoes and dance, blue daylight in your hair
Overhead a noiseless eagle fans a flame
Wonder everywhere

Those were the days
Yes they were, those were the days
Those were their ways
Miracles everywhere, where are they now? They're gone

Those were their ways
Yes they were, those were their ways
Those were the days
Yes they were, those were the days

Unpossible. Unless they are mixed with bacon or ham, or cooked in bacon grease or ham drippings, no Southerner would eat that vegetable.

Some old timers also call salamanders "Scorpions", and Cicadas "Locusts", while any snake found near water is either a "Cawttn'mouth" or "Copperhead" when in fact they are usually mostly harmless Diamondback Water Snakes. Southerners can be weird about what they call stuff.
