Something a bit different. A story I’ve seen several times now but don’t know the origin of.

May I offer you some Jesus?

May I offer you some Jesus?

The vikings tried very hard to prevent Christians from getting into Sami land because the vikings valued Sami magic very highly and often went to them for magical guidance, and they didn’t want to share that magic with Christians or want them to spoil what the Sami people had in some way. Unfortunately the vikings themselves were eventually converted and then tried to convert the Sami people themselves.

Two birds in the hand?

Two birds in the hand?

In all fairness bee flies are pretty cute, but I’ve always been weirdly envious of the Americas having hummingbirds, so I had to laugh when someone told me bee flies are “our hummingbirds”

The first recorded meetings between Japan and westerners are actually kind of sweet.

The Japanese thought there was some secret to using firearms but the Portuguese were just like "It's easy! Stand straight and close one eye! Couldn't be easier!" but the Japanese still thought it was more complicated than that and assumed the Portuguese were talking philosophy. It took some back and forth to make them understand that it wasn't a difficult discipline to shoot a rifle.
