(I work the front end of a printing shop. Our press operator comes strolling out on his way to the toilets, wiping his hands on a rag. Both are covered in ink and chemicals that I can smell from my desk across the room.)
Me: “Jeez, that’s some potent stuff.”
Press Operator: “Yeah. You know, it’s a d*** good thing we don’t live in Canada.”
Me: “What? Why’s that? Don’t like the cold?”
Press Operator: “Nope. Because that new cleaner that the owner bought me causes cancer in Canada, but I’ll be safe down here.”
Natalie Rushman… very impressive individual.

So it has come to my attention that I meet people in convoluted ways.
A: Internet. Livejournal. ArmyofChrist community. Visited her in person six years later.
G: @theartfulg Moved onto his street when I was five. Went to play with him and his little brother. They threw rocks at me because I was a girl. But I kept coming back and I made up pretty good games so they let me stay.
H: Friend of my (then)boyfriend’s friend. Started dating my (now) husband’s friend.
J: Attended college together. Thought she hated me. Reunited at a mutual friend’s wedding. Spoiler alert: she didn’t hate me.
L: I transferred to her college. She was already friends with my (then)boyfriend.
LP: Internet. The Bump. Offered to go walking with her when she was pregnant.

(I am doing safety training at work which involved watching several hours of cheesy videos. During a break I text my nephew.)
Me: “Apparently, ‘fire can be fueled by gases, liquids, or solids.’ What does that leave out exactly?”
Me: “Well, thanks for that image. Jesus is not the answer to everything.”
Me: “No, I think the mice are lying to us.”
Nephew: “You are drunk, I’m guessing?”
Me: “I’m at work.”
YO HOLD ON.
A 2500 year old mummy that had some amazing tattoos.
IT GETS BETTER.
This mummy, found in the Altai mountains of Siberia, is actually that of a young woman who died at about the age of twenty-five; she is thought to have been a member of the Pazyryk tribe.
She was buried with six horses and two similarly-tattooed men (the horned griffon that decorates her shoulder also appears on the man buried closest to her, covering most of his right side), possibly escorts. She was also wearing a horse-hair wig, silk, and elaborate boots, which is all a level of ceremony that would have likely only been accorded to a woman of high rank. You didn’t get inked like this unless you were very important, and had worked your way up to that importance.
…Hence, of course, the references to her by researchers as ‘The Ukok Princess,’ although due to the lack of weapons in her grave they have concluded that the woman was in fact a healer or a storyteller.
And now I’m all consumed with curiosity: Who was she? What amazing things did she accomplish? Why these symbols, and what did they mean? Who were the two men alongside her?
The most informative article about it can be found here, although I would completely eat up any other information you guys could find.
The Pazyryk burials are INCREDIBLE, no lie.
