Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

i finally got my bike fixed this spring (it had spent the year previous on the balcony suffering from a bent wheel) and have been riding around a bit. the potholes really are atrocious. strangely enough, though, they're the worst in outremont, a decidedly posh borough. cross park avenue back into mile end and suddenly the roads are much smoother.

nid à poules: garçonnière!

Why did the chicken cross the road?

The chicken did not cross the road. This is a complete fabrication. In fact, we do not even have a chicken.

We have reason to believe there may be potential for this chicken's capability, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road.
Colin Powell
Now, to the left of the screen, you can clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

We don't care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either for us or against us. There is no middle ground.

Looks like the chicken was crossing in the opposite direction of the other side of the road when you are sitting where I am.

I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.
Oprah
Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart-warming story of how it felt accomplishing its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

The amazing quest of a chicken crossing the breathtaking road toward self realisation
