The latest is that Cleopatra died from a lethal drug cocktail instead of a snakebite. The Pink Flamingo finds this fascinating simply because I am trying to prove that Mattie Blaylock was murdered instead of dying from a drug overdose. It is all about getting historians to look at things differently.
“…According to Christoph Schäfer, a German historian and professor at the University of Trier, the legendary beauty queen was unlikely to have committed suicide by letting an asp — an Egyptian cobra — sink into her flesh.
“There was no cobra in Cleopatra’s death,” Schäfer told Discovery News.

The very first state dinner in history is going on as The Pink Flaming writes much of this post. It is obviously the very first state dinner ever given by a President and First Lady. NOTHING before has compared to this august event.
Second, the Obama Administration basically snubbed the GOP by inviting very few Republicans in its cast of thousands.
The Pink Flamingo is a student of history (FYI). One of the truths that strangely repeats itself is the way a “leader” who is extremely extravagant is grossly incompetent. Let’s face it, Obama and is Dems are spending like Louis XIV of France. Plus, there is his clueless and pathetically dressed Michelle Antoinette. The extravagant incompetents of history all have one interesting little tidbit in common. They all come to a very bad end.
One of the hallmarks of these sorts of narcissistic “leaders” is their petty demand to destroy the reputation of the great men who came before them. In this Obama is no different from any number of pathetic and mediocre losers of history.Read More

One of the great historical mysteries has been the fate of the army of Cambyses.
“…According to Herodotus, Cambyses sent an army to threaten the Oracle of Amun at the Siwa Oasis. The army of 50,000 men was halfway across the desert when a massive sandstorm sprang up, burying them all. Although many egyptologists regard the story as a myth, people have searched for the remains of the soldiers for many years. These have included Count László Almásy (on whom the novel The English Patient was based) and modern geologist Tom Brown. Some believe that in recent petroleum excavations, the remains may have been uncovered…”
It now appears that two Italian archaeologists have discovered Cambyses lost army! The plot sounds like an Indiana Jones movie – an army of 50,000 men were literally swollowed in a massive sand storm.
Golly – was Herodotus right?
“…Now, two top Italian archaeologists claim to have found striking evidence that the Persian army was indeed swallowed in a sandstorm. Twin brothers Angelo and Alfredo Castiglioni are already famous for their discovery 20 years ago of the ancient Egyptian “city of gold” known as Berenike Panchrysos.
Presented recently at the archaeological film festival of Rovereto, the discovery is the result of 13 years of research and five expeditions to the desert.
