Share Your World – Week 215

No 19 year old has a beard that long…

One hundred years ago today on February 16, 1923, archaeologist Howard Carter unsealed the burial chamber of the pharaoh Tutankhamun and unleashed the wonderful world of ancient Egypt on popular culture.  King Tut, as he came to be known, was hardly the most important or influential ruler of Egypt… he reigned during his teen years and died at age nineteen.  But because tomb was the most well preserved of all the other pharaohs found in the Valley of Kings, the discovery taught us the most about that long ago culture and turned Tut into a household name.  If you love the Mummy Man, blue and gold Egyptian burial masks, or even walking like an Egyptian…. you can thank Howard Carter for bringing that into your life…

At the cost of releasing King Tut’s curse, of course. At least I have someone to pawn that off on…

And now for something that’s bound to age a lot worse than Tut did over nearly three millennia… my answers to this week’s Share Your World questions from Di! (Via Marla)

There’s Egypt right there…

If you could rename yourself, what name would you choose and why?

I think most of us in the internet age have already renamed ourselves.  I have two different online names… you know me best as Evil Squirrel.  As for my real name, I kind of like it because it’s so common that I’d be very difficult for a stalker to Google.

Yeah, that’s totally me…

If you were tasked with naming a new star, what would you name it and why?

Don’t we already have that star registry system for this?  For a few hundred bucks, you can put whatever name you want on a star that’s 69 bajillion light years away from earth that couldn’t even be seen from earth in the days before light pollution.

What else would you name a star other than Ringo?

If you were a story/comic book hero, what would your name be and why?

And you can read more about The Masked Marsupial’s misadventures here

If animals could talk, which would be the rudest?

I’ve certainly got some rather rude looks and reactions from squirrels before while photographing them.  But I’d think the asshole of the animal kingdom would probably be the honey badger…

No I’m NOT a fucking skunk! Now get lost before I bite your ass!!!

Gratitude: The grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

Fuzzywig would be too lazy to even check the grass on the other side…

  1. I first thought the possum would be he rudest one… but it is mostly dead before it can be rude… lOL

  2. Ahhhhh yes…..The Masked Marsupial strikes again. Nobody but nobody dies as gracefully (and frequently) as he does. Another good name for a star might be “Catchafalling”… old Perry Como fave.

    What’s this about IF animals could talk? You are soooooo into squirrels that you forget about us parrots.

  4. The truth is…honey badger just don’t care.

    Honey badgers are MEAN. We went to Egypt after I retired and got to see everything, including Tut’s tomb and a lot of the stuff from the tomb in the Egyptian museum!

    Honey badgers are generally MEAN!

  7. I read King Tut and immediately thought of Steve Martin –

    He coulda won a Grammy, (King Tut)
    Buried in his jammies
    Born in Arizona, moved to Babylonia
    He was born in Arizona, got a condo made of stone-a
    King Tut!

    Honey badger – quite an unassuming name for such an complete asshat of an animal. While playing Far Cry 4(?), early on I was killed more times by honey badgers than by people toting actual automatic weapons…
