Article of the Day: The Last Meal

Article of the Day:
The Last Meal

Throughout history, prisoners condemned to death have customarily been offered a special “last meal.” In premodern Europe, it was a symbolic social act where, by accepting the last meal, the condemned was believed to forgive the executioner, judge, and witnesses. Although alcohol was once used to soothe prisoners and keep them from lashing out during the execution process, alcohol is now generally barred from these meals.

We’ll wait and see, but chances are… (Poetic thought by GeorgeB)

Detached from the dormant tree
All the dried leaves have fallen but one…a special one,

for unknown reasons…
The winds didn’t detach it,

nor did the cold rains,

the freezing breezes of December or

the early mornings’ icy crystals of frozen water…

all these barely scratched new tears

upon its dried out reddish-brown, wrinkled face…

Will it survive the winter?

Will it hang around till spring?

Will it be the exceptional leave its home, no matter what?

Will it be the last of the survivors, born on the death list,

in the country of the dead,

under the symbols of the crossed sickle-n- hammer?

We’ll wait and see, but chances are…
(Transmission interupted here)

Origin story – Wikipedia



Origin story – Wikipedia

This article is about the back-stories of fictional characters. For myths about origins of world phenomena, see Origin myth. For other uses of “origin”, see Origin (disambiguation).

The trauma of his parents’ murder serves as the origin story for the popular fictional character Batman.

In entertainment, an origin story is an account or backstory revealing how a character or group of people become a protagonist or antagonist, and it adds to the overall interest and complexity of a narrative, often giving reasons for their intentions.

In American comic books, it also refers to how characters gained their superpowers and/or the circumstances under which they became superheroes or supervillains.
In order to keep their characters current, comic book companies, as
well as cartoon companies, game companies, children’s show companies,
and toy companies, frequently rewrite the origins of their oldest
characters. This goes from adding details that do not contradict earlier
facts to a totally new origin which makes it seem that it is an
altogether different character.

A pourquoi story, also dubbed an “origin story”, is also used in mythology,
referring to narratives of how a world began, how creatures and plants
came into existence, and why certain things in the cosmos have certain
yet distinct qualities.
