Hudson Valley Mayfaire. I'll be pretending to be "Owain Cramp" - pre-minstrel.

They said I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket - well I've proved them wrong!

Is a pre-minstrel Cramp worse than a minstrel Cramp?

Deuteronomy 2:9
Then the LORD said to me, "Do not harass the Moabites or provoke them to war, for I will not give you any part of their land. I have given Ar to the descendants of Lot as a possession."

1 Kings 11:33
I will do this because they have [ Hebrew; Septuagint, Vulgate and Syriac because he has] forsaken me and worshiped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Sidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Molek the god of the Ammonites, and have not walked in obedience to me, nor done what is right in my eyes, nor kept my decrees and laws as David, Solomon's father, did.

Chemosh was prior to the establishment of the Temple of the Golden Globes.

Molek didn't do to badly for a god worshiped primarily by extinct invertabretes.

Amos, Oowain is a "pre-minstrel" because due to test anxiety he has flunked his apprenticeship exams 32 years running. On a trip to 1575 Her Majesty (Bess I, that is) did decree him to be a full fledged minstrel on merit, but since this will be 1540 that hasn't happened yet, even though it occurred (will have occurred?) several years ago.

English really needs a few more tenses to take care of situations like this.

That was absolutely horrible, Amos. Inexcusable. (How come you got up so early to beat me to it?)

John, I think I have some Ammonites in the creek down in my back yard. You want me to mail you one?

Some Gods are so picky!! Control freaks. Jealous. Kinda like any other celebrity.

Anyway, I had forgotten all about Chemosh, John, she'd gone completely out of my heart and mind until you reminded me just now.

Chemosh-nadab (in Assyrian, Kammusu-Nadbi) was the king of Moab during the reign of Sennacherib. He is described on the Taylor Prism as bringing tribute to the Assyrian king during the latter's Levantine campaigns.



and also:

Chemosh ( Hebrew כמש, pronounced [χe'moʃ] ), was the god of the Moabites (Num. 21:29; Jer. 48:7, 13, 46). The word Chemosh meant the destroyer, subduer, or fish-god.

According to the Hebrew Bible, the worship of this god, "the abomination of Moab," was introduced at Jerusalem by Solomon (1 Kings 11:7), but was abolished by Josiah (2 Kings 23:13). On the Moabite stone, Mesha (2 Kings 3:5) ascribed his victories over the king of Israel to this god, "And Chemosh drove him before my sight."

...

The etymology of "Chemosh" is unknown. The name of the father of Mesba, Chemosh-melek ("Chemosh is Malik," or "Chemosh is king"; compare Moabite Stone, line 1), indicates the possibility that Chemosh and Malik (or Moloch) were one and the same deity. Judges xi. 24 has been thought by some to be a proof of this, since it speaks of Chemosh as the god of the Ammonites, while Moloch is elsewhere their god (compare I Kings xi. 7, 33). Several critics rightly regard the statement in Judges as a mistake; but such an error was not unnatural. since both Chemosh and Moloch were developed, in different environments, from the same primitive divinity, and possessed many of the same epithets.

I think that "ammonite" is what they make ammo out of. Or, it is that of which they make ammo. Or, ammo is made of "ammonite" (parenthesis optional).

Crayfish are in the creek in your back yard and if you want to fix them in a gumbo then, yes, you can mail some to me. Crayfish also worship Chemosh (this isn't well known, but I have it on good authority. I made it up).

Ammo is better for warship than for worship. That's just my observation. Your opinion may vary.

You will also sprinkle your heads with hot ashes, but as an all-beneficent deity We enjoin you from harming yourselves by doing so. Lastly, We require you to climb Soyo-San (also known as Mt.

This is a little tough for eating. (This is an authoritative photo of one of the critters).

Hey Mom!! I discovered Rapaire's REAL problem -- he's one of them Efimov trimers, and physicists have been trying to track him down for years!! Good thing we figgered it out. This Deistic We business was gonna get him committed to a loony bin, but now he can go to a think-tank instead! YAAAY!!!

"THE EFIMOV EFFECT: THREE*S COMPANY, TWO'S A CROWD. At the April APS
meeting in Jacksonville, physicists discussed the recent observations of
the Efimov effect, a purely quantum phenomenon whereby two particles
such as neutral atoms which ordinarily do not interact strongly with one
another join together with a third atom under the right conditions. The
trio can then form an infinite number of configurations, or put another
way, an infinite number of "bound states" that hold the atoms together.

The effect was first predicted around 1970 by a physicist named Vitaly
Efimov, then a Ph.D. candidate at the time, but was originally
considered "too strange to be true," according to the University of
Colorado*s Chris Greene, in part because the atoms would abruptly
switch from being standoffish to becoming stuck-together Siamese
Triplets at remarkably long distances from one another (approximately
500-10,000 times the size of a hydrogen atom in the case of neutral
atoms). For decades, experimenters tried in vain to create these
three-particle systems (which came to be known as "Efimov trimers").
In 1999, Greene and his collaborators Brett Esry and Jim Burke
predicted that gases of ultracold atoms might provide the right
conditions for creating the three-particle state. In 2005, a research
team led by Rudi Grimm of the University of Innsbruck in Austria finally
confirmed the Efimov state in an ultracold gas of cesium cooled to just
10 nanokelvin.

How do the neutral atoms attract one another in the first place? At
small distances, ordinary chemical bonding mechanisms apply, but at the
vast distances relevant to the Efimov effect, it is mainly through the
van der Waals effect, in which rearrangements of electrical charge in
one atom (forming an "electric dipole") create electric fields that can
induce dipoles in, and thereby attract, neighboring atoms. The
observation of the Efimov effect is a coup for being able to study the
rich quantum physics between three particles.

The effect can conceivably occur in nucleons or molecules (and any
object governed by quantum mechanics). However, it will likely be
harder to observe in those systems because physicists cannot alter the
strengths of interactions between the constituent particles as easily as
they can in ultracold atom gases (through their "Feshbach resonances").
But the effect could provide insights on such systems as the triton, a
nucleon with one proton and two neutrons, in addition to the BCS-BEC
crossover, in which atoms switch from forming weakly bound Cooper pairs
to entering a single collective quantum state.

(See also article by Charles Day, Physics Today, April 2006, Esry et al, Phys. Rev. Lett, 30
August 1999, and Kraemer et al., Nature, 16 March 2006)."

Interesting thought -- is it possible to be schizo in cyberspace? Since you usually type one message at a time, obviosu you're serial rather than parallely multiple.

(he can too!! He could bargew in on himself within one post!!)

(Oh, shutup -- don't interrupt. You know I hate that....)

(You two better calm down and let ME finish this post....)

In any case, Rapaire's obsession with the first person plural means that even his component identities are so fractured they each think they are many. Like something out of the New Testament:

"In my father's head are many mansions; and in my father's mansion are many heads. And never the twain shall meet."
