[quote:Fancypantz:MV8zMjM4NDkyXzczNDMxNTkyXzc2RDRFMjc=] [quote:Ricky M:MV8zMjM4NDkyXzczMzAyNjI1XzMwQUI1OTkw] Very cool! I've never thrown an axe I might kill someone or be a pro at it not sure I want to find out. That's really cool though I ended up being good at archery with very little practice. I haven't in so long though but if I needed to shoot something I could do it I bet. [i]Egyptians referred to Nubia as "Ta-Seti," or "The Land of the Bow," since the Nubians were known to be expert archers, and by the 16th Century BC Egyptians were using the composite bow in warfare. Deities and heroes in several mythologies are described as archers, including the Greek Artemis and Apollo, the Roman Diana and Cupid, the Germanic Agilaz, continuing in legends like those of Wilhelm Tell, Palnetoke, or Robin Hood. Armenian Hayk and Babylonian Marduk, Indian Karna (also known as Radheya/son of Radha), Abhimanyu, Eklavya, Arjuna, Bhishma, Drona, Rama, and Shiva were known for their shooting skills. The famous archery competition of hitting the eye of a rotating fish while watching its reflection in the water bowl was one of the many archery skills depicted in the Mahabharata. Persian Arash was a famous archer. Earlier Greek representations of Heracles normally depict him as an archer.[/i] https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archery [/quote] https://www.foxnews.com/us/hatchet-thief-oregon-store-clerk-gun?fbclid=IwAR1jkPmqw8Q0GPew6J561P245cFwMUlj783H-7LpVdO64UiHhOz2avSbhwE [i]Hatchet-wielding thief backs down when store clerk pulls out gun - but firearm costs employee his job[/i] Sense topic lol [/quote]
An origin story of purpose

Duat (pronounced "do-aht") (also Tuat and Tuaut or Akert, Amenthes, Amenti, or Neter-khertet) was the realm of the dead in ancient Egyptian mythology. It was the realm of the deity Osiris and the residence of other gods and supernatural beings. The Duat was the region through which the sun god Ra traveled from west to east during the night, and where he battled Apep. It was also the place where people's souls went after death for judgement, though that was not the full extent of the afterlife. Burial chambers formed touching-points between the mundane world and the Duat, and spirits could use tombs to travel back and forth from the Duat.
