And since hieroglyphs can be written both left to right or right to left, definitely handy.

Quote reblogged from Crowing in the Gallows Wood with 8 notes

'Their mother is evil,' said Urd.

'But their father is worse,' Verdandi said.

'Expect nothing from them but the worst,' said Skuld. 'Expect them to harm and endanger you. They will be in after the kill.'

And so the gods agreed that Loki’s children must be captured. At Odin’s behest, a group of gods crossed into Jotunheim by night; they burst into Angrboda’s hall and gagged and bound her before she had even rubbed her eyes; they kidnapped her children and carried them back to Asgard.

In classical Athenian law, inanimate objects could stand trial for a crime they may have committed. If the object was found ‘guilty’, then it would be cast beyond the Attic borders, as a way of purifying the land again.
Pausanias tells us of a bronze statue of Theagenes which was flogged every night by a man who had hated him during his lifetime. But one night, the statue fell and killed him. His sons prosecuted the Theagenes statue for murder, and as a result, was drowned in the sea. It was only retrieved some years later when the oracle at Delphi instructed it.
