This is for those who appreciate historical finds…..

Hebrew Writing……. Written across the wall of the cave were the following symbols:

It was considered a unique find and the writings were said to be at least 3,000 years old!  The piece of stone was removed, brought to the museum, and archaeologists from around the world came to study the ancient symbols.  They held a huge meeting after months of conferences to discuss the meaning of the markings.  The president of the society pointed to first drawing and said:

“This is a woman. We can see these people held women in high esteem.

You can also tell they were intelligent, as the next symbol is a donkey, so they were smart enough to have animals help them till the soil.

The next drawing is a shovel, which means they had tools to help them.

Even further proof of their high intelligence is the fish which means that during a famine, they seek food from the sea.

The last symbol appears to be the Star of David which means they were evidently Hebrews.” The audience applauded enthusiastically.
 
Then an old Jewish man stood up in the back of the room and said,

“Idiots… Hebrew is read from right to left…  It says:

‘Holy mackerel, dig the ass on that chick”.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

NGC 1499: The California Nebula
Image Credit & Copyright: Bray Falls

Explanation: There’s even a California in space. Drifting through the Orion Arm of the spiral Milky Way Galaxy, this cosmic cloud by chance echoes the outline of California on the west coast of the United States. Our own Sun also lies within the Milky Way’s Orion Arm, only about 1,500 light-years from the California Nebula. Also known as NGC 1499, the classic emission nebula is around 100 light-years long. On the featured image, the most prominent glow of the California Nebula is the red light characteristic of hydrogen atoms recombining with long lost electrons, stripped away (ionized) by energetic starlight. The star most likely providing the energetic starlight that ionizes much of the nebular gas is the bright, hot, bluish Xi Persei just to the right of the nebula. A regular target for astrophotographers, the California Nebula can be spotted with a wide-field telescope under a dark sky toward the constellation of Perseus, not far from the Pleiades.
