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.

Great story -- and yes, "so Canadian"!

Oh I needed that laugh , thanks! Sweet story.

here they would both pull out guns and shoot each other. and some innocent bystanders as well.

Since I live with a guy from Nova Scotia, you think I'd better hide the mops and brooms?
Not that he'd know where to find them anyway. ;)

This made me smile, too. I wonder if it's peculiarly Nova Scotian.
