Last night I was abducted by space aliens.

The made me sit up straight, eat all my vegetables, wash behind my ears, pick my socks up off the floor and go to bed early.

I'm pretty sure I was aboard the mother ship.

THE ORIGIN OF DISAPPEARING INK

Alexander the Great communicated by couriers carrying written messages. These were often delayed by camp followers who accompanied his armies. Alexander applied to his advisors for a method of knowing whether a courier had dallied. Eventually one invented disappearing ink, and was able to formulate it for varying delay times. “Keep the formulas secret,” he said. “Dip a rag in the ink and tie it around the courier’s wrist. If the journey ought to take five hours, use six-hour ink. If it fades before the courier arrives, he has dallied. Behead him. If it never fades, he has switched for another rag. Behead him. In this way you can enforce promptness.”

This solved Alexander’s problem, and became known world-wide, one of the most famous inventions in history. Nearly everyone has heard of Alexander’s rag time-band.

In a far time, many products of the soil evolved to develop sentience, mobility, language, and an essentially Hellenistic civilization. At length a demagogue, orphan of a relative of the rhododendron, came to power in one city-state and made desolating incursions upon neighbors. Being threatened, the leaders of one neighbor applied to a seer for advice. "Alas," the seer answered, "you may as well submit. No one can resist the waif of the fuchsia."
