Still... at least they didn't believe anything really daft about bees, like they could process dead meat into honey or something. That would be totally un-bee-lievab... oh, hold on..

Link : Is that how bees actually work?

Cool! 

Amazing zoological insight aside, the other parts of Samson's story are full of useful moral instruction, such as "don't get tricked into having someone else break a vow your mother made on your behalf before you were born or God will desert you and you'll end up blinded and enslaved".

And that gave rise to this:



which i always wondered about as a child...
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

It has been a tougher week than I originally imagined it would be (and today spectacularly so) but here it is.

If you're a member of the patreon ( https://www.patreon.com/holdenreppion ) you'll see John has been writing short interesting accompanying essays to each - plus, over on twitter, my new archeological expert and twitter chum Dr Rena, has contributed some interesting notes about the archeology side of the strip - which you'll probably find as replies to my tweet here: https://twitter.com/pauljholden/status/1182207465221480453

thanks all, found a bit of time to blog a bit about it (not sure if it's got anything in it that you need to read mind you...)
