Belial - Arch Duke of Hell

His presence (or otherwise) is of paramount importance to the weather forecast. Should the Demonic One be spotted on one of His regular pub crawls through the suburbs or Birmingham then this might spell a windy and wet disaster for those nearby. At the very least, it may presage some serious drunken groping of nearby animals and assorted objects.

  1. Candles

Scented candles were made from many disgusting materials, from beeswax to animal fat to animal meat to, for a brief period in the middle ages, the fat of unbaptized infants. This was used to make a special type of scented candles known as Hecate candles, which briefly conferred upon those who burnt them the ability to fly. Hecate candles were extremely popular among the upper classes in England, Germany, and France, and are said to have smelled like lilac, but less purple.

  1. How to fight Dark Magic

There are few available ways to fight dark magic. Only a Jedi is fully able to defeat Dark Magic. One thing that is proven to protect one against the effects of dark magic is liquid platypus. Jump ropes and certain other items have also shown to be resisent to Black magic mind tricks but are still able to be manipulated by other types of black magic. The only person ever to kill Black Magic was Chuck Norris, who only had to blink at it. This resulted in the near death of the Democratic party, with the republicans staying in office from the year 1897 to the year 1913. After feeling bad for the Democrats, Chuck Norris revived Black Magic, which came back pissed off, causing the great depression which followed after the reinstatement of the Democratic party.

  1. Colors

When it comes to Black and Yellow, Fear is one thing that everyone agrees on, but Don’t Panic, here are some things that are Black and Yellow. Knowing what to expect can help you prepare to re-paint these fearful items.

•The colour scheme of this page is Black and Yellow
•Many Road Signs
•Lemons (The seeds are black)
•The Uncyclopedia Logo
•Caution Tape
•Certain Stoplights
•The Pittsburgh Steelers

The only thing on this list that needs special attention is lemons.


Yellow is most oftentimes associated with danger, this is very reason why Lemons are yellow. Some people, mostly small children, think that by squeezing the juice out of a lemon, all the harmful properties are removed, thus making it able to be sold for profit. However, this is not so because the juice just so happens to be the most dangerous part of a lemon. This is because Every Villain is Lemons. One can become a hero and defeat this Super Villian (Lemons) by following these steps:

1.Hop into the nearest BMW Z3 roadster, or other compact-like vehicle.
2.Pick-up a Chain-Loaded Nerf Gun, (preferably a Black and Yellow one), and attach a rope to it so you can wear it like a sash.
3.Proceed at 350km/hr to the nearest Lemonade stand in a nearby suburban housing development.
4.Upon arrival, slow up/down, but not by much.
5.Began to shoot the nerf darts at the Cashier, lemonade jug, and the stand itself.

According to Lovecraft’s “History of the Necronomicon” (written 1927, first published 1938), Alhazred was:
a mad poet of Sanaá, in Yemen, who is said to have flourished during the period of the Ommiade caliphs, circa 700 A.D. He visited the ruins of Babylon and the subterranean secret of Memphis and spent ten years alone in the great southern desert of Arabia—the Roba El Khaliyeh or “Empty Space” of the ancients—and “Dahna” or “Crimson” desert of the modern Arabs, which is held to be inhabited by protective evil spirits and monsters of death. Of this desert many strange and unbelievable marvels are told by those who pretend to have penetrated it. In his last years Alhazred dwelt in Damascus.

Damascus saw a political decline throughout the Abbasid era, only to regain significant importance in the Ayyubid and Mamluk periods.

In 730, while still living in Damascus, Alhazred supposedly wrote a book of ultimate evil in Arabic, al-Azif, which would later become known as the Necronomicon. Those who have dealings with this book usually come to an unpleasant end, and Alhazred was no exception. Again according to Lovecraft’s “History”:
Of his final death or disappearance (738 A.D.) many terrible and conflicting things are told. He is said by Ebn Khallikan (12th cent. biographer) to have been seized by an invisible monster in broad daylight and devoured horribly before a large number of fright-frozen witnesses. Of his madness many things are told. He claimed to have seen the fabulous Irem, or City of Pillars, and to have found beneath the ruins of a certain nameless desert town the shocking annals and secrets of a race older than mankind. He was only an indifferent Moslem, worshipping unknown entities whom he called Yog-Sothoth and Cthulhu.

Finding Alhazred’s burial chamber and fate. Alhazred had been kidnapped in Damascus and brought to the Nameless City, where he had earlier studied and learned some of the Necronomicon‍ '​s lore. As punishment for betraying their secrets, Alhazred was tortured. Then they blinded him, severed his tongue and executed him.



Turns out, cutting a badly behaved individual is a time-honored tradition. “The ‘cut’ is given by a continued stare at a person,” Houghton instructs. “This can only be justified at all by extraordinary and notoriously bad conduct on the part of the one ‘cut,’ and it is very seldom called for. Should any one desire to avoid a bowling acquaintance with another, it maybe be done by turning aside or dropping her eyes.”

It’s also important to know who you can cut: “Good society will not allow a gentleman to give a lady the ‘cut’ under any circumstances; yet there may be circumstances in which he would be excused for persisting in not meeting her eyes, for should their eyes meet he must bow, even though she fails to grant him a decided recognition,” Houghton writes.

St Swithun (this is the preferred spelling in Winchester, the city with which he is most closely associated) was a Bishop of Winchester in the 9th century and tutor to King Alfred the Great. He is said to have performed one miracle in his lifetime, mending the eggs of a woman who had dropped them in her astonishment at seeing the bishop. After his death, he was buried at his own request outside the cathedral where the rain would fall on his grave. Later his body was moved inside, and his spirit was so offended that it caused rain to fall for forty consecutive days. For this reason, it is said that if it rains on St Swithun’s Day (15 July) it will rain for the next forty days.

The forty days’ Rain, now ascribed to St.
Swithin, used also to belong to this Saint. A

custom of rolling a large wheel, bound with
straw set on fire, down a hill on this day, which
evidently signifies that the Sun, the Orb of Day,
begins to roll down again from his greatest
height. Naorgeorgus mentions the same, and
adds, that the folks used to imagine that they
could roll down and get rid of their ill luck
with this wheel. As a counterpart to this, it
may be observed, that Yuletide or Christmas is
really Wheeltide, and signifies the return of
the revolving Sun to his ascending course

Researches about atmospheric phenomena

There are, occasionally, stationary Meteors,
simple Accensions, which appear in cloudy Skies,
and last scarcely a moment. There are also
luminous portions of clouds occasionally, of
less intensity of light, which are faint and
glimmering, like luminous nebulae ; and others,
which have a rapid motion, that may be said to
have the same relation to moving Meteors
above, which the pale light about plants, before
noticed, bears to the well known phaenomenon
which occurs below called the Ignis Fatuus,
Jack with a Lantern, or Will with a Wisp,
the power of which to lead astray the benighted
traveller into boggy quagmires, by presenting
the appearance of a moving lantern, is well
known, and of which many curious stories are

THE cirrus is a cloud which appears to have
the least density, and generally the most eleva-
tion, and which has the greatest variety of extent
and direction. It may truly be called the Pro-
teus of the skies; for, in some kinds of weather,
its figure is so rapidly and so continually
changed, that after turning the eye away from
it for a few minutes, it will frequently be found
so completely altered, as scarcely to be identified
as the same cloud. This, however, is not always
the case; it is sometimes visible for many hours
and even days together, without much changing
its appearance. I shall briefly mention some of
its most common varieties, together with the
circumstances under which they generally ap-

After a continuance of clear weather, the
cirrus is frequently the first cloud which is seen.
In this case it often looks like a fine whitish
thread pencilled, as M. Howard expresses it,
on the clear blue sky: to this other, faint lines
of the same kind are added laterally; they in-
crease in size and length, and often serve as
stems from which numerous branches proceed
and become other cirri of the same kind. These
linear cirri will generally be found to be very
high in the air, the lines frequently extend
quite across the welkin, while their ends, being
lost in either horizon, appear, from a well known
optical deception, to converge into one point.
They do not always extend in parallel lines;
they frequently diverge, or increase obliquely
downwards. Sometimes transverse lines are
formed, which intersecting the others at right
angles, give to the sky the appearance of being
covered with a beautiful network. Of late, by
way of distinction, I have used certain specific
names for the various forms of each modification.
I have called this netlike feature the reticular
cirrus. Those which are local and detached,
and which ramify in many directions, giving
the idea of a distended lock of hair, may be de-
nominated comoid cirri. Sometimes numerous
little filaments appear like bundles of thread,
which I have called filiform cirri. In fail*, dry
weather, with light gales, obliquely descending
bands of fibrous texture are often seen, and fre-
quently move slowly along from the leeward in
a supervening current. I by no means intend, by
the above account, to infer that the appearances
of the different kinds of cirri, or indeed of any
cloud, are ever quite uniform; on the contrary,
scarcely two occur exactly alike; and there are
many features so various and so mixed, that a
particular description of each can scarcely be
attempted. In some kinds of weather, the
numberless and everchanging figures which this
cloud is continually presenting to the eye, baffle
all attempt at description. Practical observation
affords the only means of becoming acquainted
with them. The observations of M. Howard, as well as
those which I have made since the perusal of his
meteorological papers, have induced me to be-
lieve, that, under whatever form the curlcloud
may appear, it must always be regarded as a
conductor of the electric fluid. Its very texture
seems indicative of its particular office. The
long parallel and elevated lines are probably
equalizing the electricity of masses of air very
remote from each other. The detached comoid
cirri equalizing their own electricity with that of
the surrounding air, while oblique or depending
tufts appear to be conducting from an upper to
lower stratum. The cirrus, too, is sometimes
interposed and conducting between two other
clouds at some distance from each other. All
the phenomena which I have witnessed, since
my attention was directed to nepheology, are
reconcileable with this supposition: and it is
probable that a cirrus ceasing to conduct, ceases
to be a cirrus, and that it either evaporates, or
passes to some of the other modifications: in
doing which, it may often be seen in an inter-
mediate state, partaking more or less of the
modification into which it may be changing, and
exhibiting, in the progress of its metamorphosis,
very various and very beautiful appearances.
I have elsewhere had occasion to notice the
long continued appearance, and the multiform
and everchanging configurations of this and
the other modifications, unattended by rain,
and accompanied by dry, variable, and generally
easterly winds, the abundance of nocturnal
meteors, and the intermitted actions of De
Luc’s aerial electroscope, as indicative of a very
peculiar state of the electric atmosphere; and,
I believe, not a very healthy one.

Appearances similar to Northern
Lights are seen in low latitudes occasionally, an
instance of which I witnessed on Monday the
4th of December, 1820, at Hartfield, in Sussex.
About six o’clock in the evening, several lumi-
nous phaenomena, resembling the reflection in
the sky of large but distant fires, appeared in
the N. and N. E., and were distinctly seen by
other persons on several subsequent nights.
Refer to the Calendar at the end of this work.

Some have considered Shooting Stars as bodies projected
from the Moon, and ignited in their course. In this case, the
peculiarities of their light, at diiferent times, might be caused
either by the quality of the air in which they burned, or by
the quality of the ignited body. Meteorolites too have been
considered as similarly projected from the Moon, and have
thence received the appellation of Lunar Stones. And this
opinion has gained support by their analysis, which does not
correspond with that of any known terrestrial compound.

As there are many circumstances which con-
stitute particular kinds of weather, and many
combinations of these circumstances, it will be
proper to adopt some one as a criterion, and
speak of the combinations of the others under
that head.
The order of the clouds is the most obvious
feature in different kinds of weather, and ought
to be principally attended to. There are several
sorts of weather, which, to an inattentive
observer, would be called, in common, fine
wholesome weather; but which, by a more
minute observance, are found to differ ma-
terially, both in their appearance and conse-

Although the expression “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is often described as an Arabic proverb, there is no evidence of such an origin. Its exact origin is unknown. The Latin saying amicus meus, inimicus inimici mei (“my friend, the enemy of my enemy”) was widely used in 18th century Europe.

It is true that life expectancy in the Middle Ages and earlier was low; however, one should not infer that people usually died around the age of 30. In fact, earlier low life expectancies were very strongly influenced by high infant mortality, and the life expectancy of people who lived to adulthood was much higher. A 21-year-old man in medieval England, for example, could by one estimate expect to live to the age of 64

William Carpenter, a printer originally from Greenwich, England, was a supporter of Rowbotham and published Theoretical Astronomy Examined and Exposed – Proving the Earth not a Globe in eight parts from 1864 under the name Common Sense. He later emigrated to Baltimore where he published A hundred proofs the Earth is not a Globe in 1885. He argues that:
“There are rivers that flow for hundreds of miles towards the level of the sea without falling more than a few feet — notably, the Nile, which, in a thousand miles, falls but a foot. A level expanse of this extent is quite incompatible with the idea of the Earth’s convexity. It is, therefore, a reasonable proof that Earth is not a globe.”
“If the Earth were a globe, a small model globe would be the very best — because the truest — thing for the navigator to take to sea with him. But such a thing as that is not known: with such a toy as a guide, the mariner would wreck his ship, of a certainty!, This is a proof that Earth is not a globe.”

The model of an egg was often used by Chinese astronomers like Zhang Heng (78-139 AD) to describe the heavens as spherical:

The heavens are like a hen’s egg and as round as a crossbow bullet; the earth is like the yolk of the egg, and lies in the centre.

This analogy with a curved egg led some modern historians, notably Joseph Needham, to conjecture that Chinese astronomers were, after all, aware of the Earth’s sphericity. The egg reference, however, was rather meant to clarify the relative position of the flat earth to the heavens:

In a passage of Zhang Heng’s cosmogony not translated by Needham, Zhang himself says: “Heaven takes its body from the Yang, so it is round and in motion. Earth takes its body from the Yin, so it is flat and quiescent”. The point of the egg analogy is simply to stress that the earth is completely enclosed by heaven, rather than merely covered from above as the Kai Tian describes. Chinese astronomers, many of them brilliant men by any standards, continued to think in flat-earth terms until the seventeenth century; this surprising fact might be the starting-point for a re-examination of the apparent facility with which the idea of a spherical earth found acceptance in fifth-century BC Greece.

In Book III of The Divine Institutes Lactantius ridicules the notion that there could be inhabitants of the antipodes “whose footsteps are higher than their heads.” After presenting some arguments he attributes to advocates for a spherical heaven and Earth, he writes:

But if you inquire from those who defend these marvellous fictions, why all things do not fall into that lower part of the heaven, they reply that such is the nature of things, that heavy bodies are borne to the middle, and that they are all joined together towards the middle, as we see spokes in a wheel; but that the bodies that are light, as mist, smoke, and fire, are borne away from the middle, so as to seek the heaven. I am at a loss what to say respecting those who, when they have once erred, consistently persevere in their folly, and defend one vain thing by another.

Saint Augustine (354–430) took a more cautious approach in arguing against assuming that people inhabited the antipodes:

But as to the fable that there are Antipodes, that is to say, men on the opposite side of the earth, where the sun rises when it sets to us, men who walk with their feet opposite ours that is on no ground credible. And, indeed, it is not affirmed that this has been learned by historical knowledge, but by scientific conjecture, on the ground that the earth is suspended within the concavity of the sky, and that it has as much room on the one side of it as on the other: hence they say that the part that is beneath must also be inhabited. But they do not remark that, although it be supposed or scientifically demonstrated that the world is of a round and spherical form, yet it does not follow that the other side of the earth is bare of water; nor even, though it be bare, does it immediately follow that it is peopled.[69]

St Vergilius of Salzburg (c. 700 – 784), in the middle of the 8th century, discussed or taught some geographical or cosmographical ideas that St Boniface found sufficiently objectionable that he complained about them to Pope Zachary. The only surviving record of the incident is contained in Zachary’s reply, dated 748, where he wrote:

“As for the perverse and sinful doctrine which he (Virgil) against God and his own soul has uttered—if it shall be clearly established that he professes belief in another world and other men existing beneath the earth, or in (another) sun and moon there, thou art to hold a council, deprive him of his sacerdotal rank, and expel him from the Church.”

In 1945 the Historical Association listed “Columbus and the Flat Earth Conception” second of twenty in its first-published pamphlet on common errors in history. This belief is even repeated in some widely read textbooks. Previous editions of Thomas Bailey’s The American Pageant stated that “The superstitious sailors [of Columbus’ crew] … grew increasingly mutinous…because they were fearful of sailing over the edge of the world”; however, no such historical account is known

The accused at the Salem witch trials were not burned at the stake; about 15 died in prison, 19 were hanged and one was pressed to death

Humans have more than the commonly cited five senses. The number of senses in various categorizations ranges from 5 to more than 20. In addition to sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing, which were the senses identified by Aristotle, humans can sense balance and acceleration (equilibrioception), pain (nociception), body and limb position (proprioception or kinesthetic sense), and relative temperature (thermoception). Other senses sometimes identified are the sense of time, itching, pressure, hunger, thirst, fullness of the stomach, need to urinate, need to defecate, and blood carbon dioxide levels.

The second of Pseudodoxia Epidemica’s seven books entitled Tenets concerning Mineral and Vegetable Bodies includes Browne’s experiments with static electricity and magnetism — the word electricity being one of many neologisms including medical, pathology, hallucination, literary, and computer, which Browne’s vigorous inventiveness coined into the vocabulary of the early scientific revolution.
