    Verbal Spar

    Salutations Althanas, I would like to inveigle everyone to a Verbal Spar.
    The rules are as follows:
    1. Use the most unconventional or largest words you know or can unearth in a dictionary.
    2. You can only change the topic when the former topic is terminated.
    3. Bold the words that you are utilizing for this tournament of acuity.
    4. Unquestionably no Politics. Matters of state must not be broached due to not wanting squabbles to emerge in this thread.


    So, without further adieu, may the Verbal Spar commence!

    Someone else may appoint the first topic as I am impuissant to envisage a topic to confabulate about.
    Flames!

    I hereby commence this thread.

    The domesticated feline species derives from Ancient Egypt - unless my investigation online is counterfactual. There are a multitudinous percentage of cat aficionados worldwide.

    This is a widespread topic of what was then and what we perceive in this day in age. I dunno, I'm an admitted history geek and ancient Egypt is one of my fascinations. In my digging around in the past, I know feline topics in this region are vast, whether it be historical or mythical. From what I remember, 'cats' were revered for hunting/protective-type things. So, when people realized these 'cats' were capable of protecting their food stores, the domestication in that area began. I think it all started with jungle cats and wildcats of the region millenia ago, and then spread with breeding the two. From there, it erupted like wildfire back then... Plus later, the significance of such as Bastet, Mafdet, and Neith furthermore solidified the popularity of domesticated cats at that time and bled more so unto today. Hell, we all know how cats are. Not a damn one of us have any bit of control over our cats... They are their own master. We are the chosen ones. xD Even back then, it was perceived that only the Pharoah could be the proper owner of a cat, but come on... Cats are their own gods. But yeah, it is quite possible domesticated cats began in ancient Egypt, but then again, it could have started anywhere under the circumstances.

    Cats were apotheosized by the Egyptians when Bast transubstantiated into Bastet - truculent warrior goddess of the sun who suddenly burgeoned cat features, and eventually Greeks transmogrified her into a moon goddess.
