A Rolling Bear Gathers No Hair*

5 Million Points to whoever can tell me what these three dead guys have in common. I’m looking for something specific, so think hard.

So one more paper and I’m done with Literature.  This one’s on the Epic of Gilgamesh, which is said to be the oldest written story on Earth, which comes from Ancient Sumeria – between 2750 and 2500 BC.  Gilgamesh is the epic of Gilgamesh, King of Uruk and his quest for immortality.  Not a bad tale, way fucking better than Hamlet.  A point of interest in the story is Utnapishtim, a man granted immortality after he survived the wrath of the gods in the form of a flood, which wiped out all of humanity.  Unlike Noah, his dove came back empty handed.  His raven however found land.

To learn more about this story click right here.  Even if you don’t care about the story you should check the link out for it’s amazing flash animations – they’re fucking sweet.

5 Million Points are on the line kids, so get up on it.

    For a twist on the tale of Gilgamesh and his buddy Enkidu, see Star Trek: TNG, Season 5, Episode 2, “Darmok.”

    Yes, I am an enormous nerd.

  2. don't call me MA'AM

    Sorry… maybe I should have been more specific:

    2nd photo-George Sanders-Shere Khan
    3rd photo-Phil Harris-Baloo

    5 MILLION POINTS! Woot!

  3. don't call me MA'AM

    The first guy, Cabot, used to be on a show that I watched when I was a really little girl (he was Mr. French). The only other thing that I remember him from was the voice of Bagheera. Phil Harris was a pretty popular guy in his time (which was WELL before mine), but I knew of him… and I knew that he did the voice of Baloo. Simple deducing led me to the right answer.

    Sorry. I’m an insufferable know-it-all. And if I don’t know something, I will stop at nothing until I do know it.

    So, give me my 5 million points, dammit. 😉
