    The Mirror reports that a new Austrian statute outlaws gags about blondes as a part of the fight against terrorism, for fear that outraged towheads could take revenge on society.

    The Winter Solstice happens at 4:12 AM for me, so I'll probably sleep through the end of the world.

    Today is Epiphany, the original date of Christmas, (Christmas Day in Orthodox countries) and the 12th day of Christmas. Last night was Twelfth Night.

    It's been said that the three Magi traveled for two years, to arrive for Epiphany at Bethlehem.

    There is no evidence in the Bible that there were three Magi, only that there were more than one, and they brought three kinds of gifts. The "one magus, one gift" concept is a product of later Christian folklore.

    The name of Mt Olympus is of unknown origin and may predate the Greek language.

    When I was an adolescent, the mythology of the day was Greek and Roman mythology; when I was middle aged, Sumerian mythology became the mythology of the day; I'm waiting to see what mythology of the day will be in my elder years.

    There are no constants: all is change.
