Rediscovering my inner potter

The clay turning in my hands felt so good. The instructor said how impressed she was with my pot, especially as I’m a beginner. I love this feeling, rediscovering how to create with my hands.

Did you know that George Washington Carver, the master scientist, was physically castrated at a very young ageby his White plantation owners?Back male slaves that were assigned to work in their master’s house were often castrated. Although it was the white slave owner that were raping their black slaves (males, females and children ) they —with an absurd degree of hypocrisy —believed that black males were sexual deviant that could not control their sexual urges.The slave owners therefor believe that such castration of innocent Black boys was necessary to protect their daughters and wife from their slaves. The fact that Carver was castrated at an early age explains why his voice tone was so high. Carver voice tone was so high because his male hormones were never able to kick in. Male hormones (depending on the person) usually kick in between the ages of 9-16 years old. That is a wide range of years. After the male hormones kick in, it causes your voice to naturally become deeper with more of a base tone.A person castrated before puberty almost never displays any secondary sexual characteristics.This is also the reason why George Washington Carver never had any children. I am sure that the physical castration may also be the reason why Carver never married. Physical castration means that you cannot have sexual relations with anyone. There is not even an urge or desire to have sexual relationships after castration. Black people we have been given a revamped “whitewashed” version of history.

Earth may have underground ‘ocean’ three times that on surface
After decades of searching scientists have discovered that a vast reservoir of water, enough to fill the Earth’s oceans three times over, may be trapped hundreds of miles beneath the surface, potentially transforming our understanding of how the planet was formed. Full story here

My mind is blown. Geeking out to this kind of geological discovery with someone who doesn’t appreciate it is thoroughly disappointing

Akpos

This morning, Hon Patrick’s cousin, Akpos, drove into a petrol station in his sleek, state of the art Range Rover sports:

Akpos: Guy, abeg give me full tank (in benin language)

Attendant: I only speak english, sir.

Akpos: Ok brother, good morning. I currently feel a profound desire to replenish the propellant of my motorised automobile. Therefore I cordially request you to transfer from your subterranean reservoir a sufficient quantity of the combustible fluid of the highest octane rating to fill the appropriate receptacle of the said means of perambulation to the brim

Attendant: bros na play I dey play o, my name na Omoh, you fit talk am for Benin!

Genius idea from coke
