To mark St. Andrew’s Day tomorrow:
The Water Horse
There are legends of mystical horses and other animals that will lead people astray in many cultures, such as the Kelpies in Scotland, that if mounted will take their riders to the water to drown. But while the cautionary nature of avoiding lonely water is well acknowledged, nobody has seen such a creature.
“Says something about us as a people that we have a myth about how you should look a gift horse in the mouth.”

In honour of the beginning of DALEKS!:
One of the most important battles of Genhis Khan’s war with the Jin Dynasty, seemingly about to be lost due to a man-sized armoured turret armed with some kind of flame weapon.
Why is a Dalek trying to change history?
“This city will create such glorious destruction if it prospers. I would see that!”
“So you’re derailing history for an entire continent because you like fireworks?”
