    reveal's Daily Trivia 4.30.19

    1) What ancient Babylonian king created a compendium of 282 laws to guide society in the 18th century BCE? Answered

    2) Backrub.


    Weird, and creepy.

    Dark the stars and dark the moon
    Hush the night and the morning loon
    Tell the horses and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.

    Dark the oceans, dark the sky
    Hush the whales and the ocean tide
    Tell the salt marsh and beat on your drum
    Gone their master, gone their son.
