speaking of rajputs i might as well mention the proud rajput clans custom when they were under siege from a large enemy force that was too great to defeat. Once their supplies had run out and they could no longer survive within their walls the male warriors would done saffron robes and mount their horses, the gates would be thrown open and they would charge their enemy and fight to the death rather than capitulate. The womanfolk meanwhile would commit sati by throwing themselves onto a giant pyre to self-immolate themselves in order to avoid being taken alive.

Fought like tigers at Hong Kong along with the Sikhs. Before 1997, you could still visit a lot of the positions that were defended by the Indians, British and Canadians. It was a bloodbath and not a very well-known action.

Serious question, has anyone seen vivid, coloured lights rushing around the outline of the moon - bright pinks, purples and blues, chasing round the outer rim and mixing and blending into each other like a lava lamp?

 

I witnessed this once when I practiced a Drawing Down the Moon (white) witchcraft ceremony, where you point a wand or finger at the full moon from a stance that gives you the optical illusion that you're touching it, and focus on drawing evergy from it.

 

I was mesmerised, and stood there in my garden just staring at the spectacle for a long time.

 

I described it to my sister and her husband some time later, half expecting them to scoff, but they both insisted they knew exactly what I was talking about because they'd witnessed the same thing once. Again, there was a full moon, and they'd been out partying, and were very drunk, but they were adamant they had both seen it clearly. In fact, they had been so astounded at the phenomenon, that they rushed home, and despite it being around 2am, rung the hubby's elderly, fuddy-duddy parents up, excitedly instructing them to, "Quick, quick, go and look at the moon, it's doing funny things". I believe this advice was was not well received.

 Whilst doing my business I heard a strange animal shuffling noise. Using a torch I shone it into the toilet hole. Where I counted at least two pigs.

I might have made the right choice not to eat the meat.

 

they were just having a Fecal microbiota transplant:

 

Fecal microbiota transplant (FMT), also known as a stool transplant,[1] is the process of transferring fecal bacteria and other microbes from a healthy individual into another individual. FMT is an effective treatment for Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI).[2][3] For recurrent CDI, FMT is more effective than vancomycin.[2][4]

Side effects may include a risk of infections, therefore the donor should be screened.[5] FMT involves restoration of the colonic microflora by introducing healthy bacterial flora through infusion of stool via colonoscopy, enema, orogastric tube, or by mouth in the form of a capsule containing feces from a healthy donor, which in some cases is freeze-dried.

With CDI becoming more common, FMT is gaining increasing prominence, with some experts calling for it to become the first-line therapy for CDI.[6] FMT has been used experimentally to treat other gastrointestinal diseases, including colitis, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, and neurological conditions, such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson's.[7][8] In the United States, human feces has been regulated as an experimental drug since 2013. In the United Kingdom, FMT regulation is under the remit of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency.[9]

sounds like a lot of atrocities afterwards too:

Massacres and other war crimes

  • Three captured persons were executed at Quarry Bay, including a female air raid warden named Ada Baldwin who was with the local Air Raid Precautions (ARP).
  • One private (John Payne) and an Australian was captured by the Japanese in Kowloon on the 12th of December and executed.
  • After the fall of the medical station near the West Brigade command post, ten stretcher bearers of the St. John Ambulance within the station were killed, as well as a policeman and a medic from the Royal Army Medical Corps.

  • Four men of A Company Winnipeg Grenadiers were bayoneted after the battle at Jardine's Lookout.[96] One grenadier, Private Kilfoyle, was killed on the forced march to North Point, according to witnesses.
  • Four men were killed in the so-called "Black Hole of Hong Kong", a mess hut at the Wongneichong AA Battery, including two Canadian officers.
  • Around thirty civilians of different ethnicities were massacred at No. 42 Blue Pool Road on 22 December.[97]
  • In the worst massacre of POWs of the battle, the Japanese killed at least 47 after taking The Ridge in Repulse Bay. Among the dead was Major Charles Sydney Clarke of China Command HQ, two men of the 12th and 20th Coastal Regiments of the Royal Artillery (RA), six men of the Royal Army Service Corps (RASC) and two of the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps (RCASC), nineteen men of the Royal Army Ordnance Corps (RAOC) and three of the Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps (RCOC) and fourteen men of the RASC Company of the HKVDC. The Japanese also executed at least fourteen captives at Overbays, men of the same units as at The Ridge but also including three Royal Rifles of Canada and an officer of the 1st Middlesex.[98] A further seven were killed at Eucliffe and another 36 known victims cannot be placed precisely at one of the three locations (Ridge, Overbays, Eucliffe). Ride, who was present at the surrender, stated later that he saw fifty bodies lying by the road, including six Middlesex men among them. These men may have been some of those attached to the Hong Kong Chinese Regiment.[99][100] The Commonwealth War Graves Commission report also states that five men of the Royal Air Force went missing near The Ridge on 20 December, perhaps captured and killed.
  • Six men of the Middlesex were killed defending PB 14 at Deepwater Bay Ride (Lyon Light).

Most of them were killed after capture via beheading. *At least six officers and a number of other men were killed after capture at Maryknoll Mission.[101] Four members of the 8th Coastal Regiment RA may have been killed here as well; estimates of the number of men murdered vary from 11 to 16.

  • Twelve nurses were raped at the emergency hospital at Happy Valley racecourse on 25 December.[102]
  • An estimated 10,000 Hong Kong civilians were executed, while many others were tortured, raped, or mutilated

 

During the over three and a half years of occupation by the Japanese, an estimated 10,000 Hong Kong civilians were executed, while many others were tortured, raped, or mutilated.

Awards

Battalions from both Indian Army regiments earned Battle Honours for the defence of Hong Kong.[105][106][107] In his despatch, Major-General C. M. Maltby, wrote about the conduct of troops under his command in Hong Kong and mentions the 5/7 Rajput Regiment: "This battalion fought well on the mainland and their repulse of the enemy attack on Devil's Peak was entirely successful. The full force of the enemy's initial attack on the island fell on this battalion and they fought gallantly until they had suffered heavy casualties (100% of British Officers and most senior Indian Officers being lost) and were run over".

  • Gander was a Newfoundland dog posthumously awarded the Dickin Medal, the "animals' Victoria Cross", in 2000 for his deeds in World War II, the first such award in over 50 years. He picked up a thrown Japanese hand grenade and rushed with it toward the enemy, dying in the ensuing explosion but saving the lives of several wounded Canadian soldiers.
  • Colonel Lance Newnham, Captain Douglas Ford and Flight Lieutenant Hector Bertram Gray were awarded the George Cross for the gallantry they showed in resisting Japanese torture in the immediate aftermath of the battle. The men had been captured and were in the process of planning a mass escape by British forces. Their plan was discovered but they refused to disclose information under torture and were shot by firing squad.[108]
  • Captain Mateen Ansari of the 5/7th Rajput's was awarded the George Cross "for most conspicuous gallantry in carrying out hazardous work in a very brave manner". Despite numerous efforts by the Japanese to get him to renounce his allegiance to the British and assist them in spreading subversion amongst the Indian ranks held in Japanese POW camps (after the fall of the Colony), all efforts failed. Ansari was tortured and starved for over five months before being sentenced to death. He was executed by beheading on 20 October 1943.

The Land of Cockaigne: a utopian world 

Like Atlantis and El Dorado, the land of Cockaigne was a utopia. It was a fictional place.

 

Or is it just a fictional place ?

 

Here is a map; Accurata Utopiae Tabula, an "accurate map of Utopia", Johann Baptist Homann's map of Schlaraffenland published by Matthäus Seutter, Augsburg 1730.

 

This map looks very detailed to me.

The entrance to Cockaigne land is supposed to reside at the North Pole.

 

A Neapolitan tradition, extended to other Latin culture countries, is the Cockaigne pole (Italian: cuccagna; Spanish: cucaña), a horizontal or vertical pole with a prize (like a ham) at one end. The pole is covered with grease or soap and planted during a festival. Then, daring people try to climb the slippery pole to get the prize. The crowd laughs at the often failed attempts to hold on to the pole.

weird...the daily mail then posted a story on this...sounds like a load of crap to me...

Red Cross is desperately searching for people to donate their POO to help patients suffering from a rare illness

  • Red Cross is urgently seeking Perth residents to regularly donate their poo
  • Donors must be aged between 18 and 50 and not have been infected with Covid 
  • Donated stools are used to harvest faecal microbiota for transplant treatments
  • Only one person in a hundred will be eligible to donate life-saving microbiota 

By Melissa Meehan For Australian Associated Press

The Red Cross is in desperate need of your poo - it takes guts, but it's for a good cause.

Perth is home to the only Lifeblood Microbiota Donor Centre in Australia - but many of their existing donors have been wiped out by Covid-19 and the cold and flu season.

Every donation is processed into life-saving faecal microbiota in transplant treatments for patients suffering infections like Clostridioides difficile.

Our friend has just come over. Lovely lady but can be quite fiery when she wants. She just told me that yesterday she went to pick up her son from a local beach. As she has a disabled badge she parked on double yellow lines. An old man opposite was seen by her shaking his head. This naturally pissed her right off. So she starts waving her badge at him and giving him a mouthful. Eventually he managed to explain that he had Parkinson's. 

bless her the bloody idiot. Cracked me up though!

Just having a chat with my Lady about the slappers in the town where I live. Now considering she is Italian she has come up with a term worthy of heady heights of Rogers Profanosaurus. Slappers are now "Spunk Bins."

I think this is an example of whats wrong with the human race nowadays. She clearly thought it was aimed at her,and straight away went on the attack of what seems to be an person who did nothing wrong. I see this alot now,people have become very intolerant.

I've seen it as well. It seems to contradict the lefty accepting agenda that is being forced upon us. The left make the Fascist system of intolerance look mild nowadays.

I chatted a lot with my Ladies auntie who lived through Mussolini. She said in a lot of ways she could express herself more as a child than she could now.

Bizarre incidence of disappearing huge snowman…even to this day can’t figure a ‘rational explantation’!

 

Me and 2 mates when aged around 22, went out in the middle of the night as it had been snowing. Sleepy uk town, no-one ever around at night. We stopped by a park and saw the field and trees covered in snow. We rolled 2 massive balls of snow to make a snowman. The bottom one so heavy we rolled in until we couldnt, it was about 4 foot round. The head ball all 3 of us only just managed to lift and put on the bottom ball. We shoved a rollup into the snowman’s mouth, and walked off further into the town. It was still softly snowing. 
 

About an hour later we walk back home and passed the park. Our snowman had gone! The whole thing gone! Not smashed up, no excess snow near it, just a round bare patch where it had been with a light coating of freshly laid snow. No footprints near it except our own filled-in with fresh fallen snow. No marks to show it even been rolled away. 
 

We were just astonished, brain melted for some explanation how it just vanished. It’s like it simply levitated out of there! We were all straight as a line of ducks too, not even a beer clouded our judgement that night!

Has our history been completely rewritten ?

 

Make of this what you will but apparently, people that went to sleep on Sunday, October 4th, 582 AD, woke up on Monday, October 18th 1582 AD. They were not aware that an extra one thousand years had been added to their calendars because they didn’t have access to calendars. Their source of the date and time was the Church.

 

They were led to believe that the Julian date of Sunday, October 4th, 582 AD, was followed by Friday, October 15th, 582 AD, on the new Gregorian calendar.

Today, we believe that the Julian date of Thursday, October 4th, 1582 AD, was followed by Friday, October 15th, 1582 AD, on the new Gregorian calendar with no change in weekday continuity.

 

chronographics is  a completely hidden art & has been used to deceive us all.

 

Fomenko was right;
