So I could just have it be about the date, since we all know that on July 4th Saladin defeated Guy of Lusignan thus definitively changing the balance of power in the region, but, the thing is . . . I’ve been doing such an utterly bad job of getting open threads posted that this is the first one in at least three weeks.
So, seriously, everything. Anything. Whatever. Holidays, quantum physics, cute rodents, ancient bookmaking techniques, whatever.
I’m sorry I’ve been so out of it and failing to keep things happening on schedule (or, indeed, at all.)
[As a reminder, open thread prompts are meant to inspire conversation, not stifle it. Have no fear of going off topic for there is no off topic here.]
