There was a book, the Doomsday book...brb...


The name Domesday comes from the Old English word dom, meaning accounting or reckoning. Thus domesday, or doomsday, is literally a day of reckoning, meaning that a lord takes account of what is owed by his subjects. Medieval Christians believed that in the Last Judgment as recorded in Revelation, Christ would carry out a similar accounting of one's deeds—hence the term doomsday also referred to this eschatological event.[1]


It was an odd route that got me thinking about that...with the blogs I've taken...and taking...a kinda slice of could be called a study of Nature over in Fauna and Flora...but it's not disciplined in scientific terms...or any terms!...a Naturalist would take copious notes and "bird counts"...a lot of that is done...very detailed recording reports...and they're filed and stored and I ...I dont think anyone ever looks at them again!....the data collected on some subjects is just huge...brb...


Last week, up to 100 tapes, clearly marked "NASA Manned Space Center", turned up after a search in a dusty basement of a physics lecture hall at Curtin University of Technology in Perth, Western Australia. One of the old tapes has been sent to the American space agency to see whether it can be deciphered and 'stripped' of any important data which may have survived the ravages of time.

and in my thoughts I contrasted...sidebysided!...such data collecting with the History of Herodotus...I mean...what a loss it would be if he just wrote down a Domesday book....anyway...I remembered that book...and it's peculiar tie in with Doomsday!

It's gotten to be a kinda chicken little blog..insomuch I keep coming back to things falling from the sky...or making the earth shake in the Midwest!...brb...


And a Big One is hardly out of the question: The fault running up the Wabash Valley that scientists are initially thinking may have been responsible for this morning’s temblor is part of the same system that produced two of the three strongest earthquakes ever recorded in the Lower 48: The New Madrid, Mo., quakes of December 1811 and February 1812, each thought to have been magnitude 8 or greater.


Article tries to set California and Illinois sidebyside...well...I was born there...but chicken little deserves a...brb!....


The Sky Is Falling, better known as Chicken Licken, Henny Penny or Chicken Little is an old fable about a chicken (or a hare in early versions) who believes the sky is falling. The phrase, "The sky is falling," has passed into the English language as a common idiom indicating a hysterical or mistaken belief that disaster is imminent. This usage is generally derogatory.

unquote has been known to fall...there's these meteor holes all over after all!

and history repeating is an hysterically imminent threat!

and I seemed to have missed this one...
