Between the Lions is a children's puppet series that airs on PBS, designed to promote reading skills. The basic philosophy of the program is to get kids "wild about reading"; this is literalized through the use of a family of lions running a library: Theo and Cleo and their children Lionel and Leona. Although it is not affiliated with The Jim Henson Company or Sesame Street, it does share many similar characteristics, along with some similarities to The Electric Company. It also features many cast and crew commonly involved with Muppet productions. muppet.wikia.com...
Even though cylinder seals had been carved in Mesopotamia for over three thousand years, the form was by no means exhausted by the time of the Persian conquest. Some of the most exquisite cylinders were produced in the Achaemenid workshops. On this seal it is no longer the nude bearded hero of the Akkadians who dominates the animals, but the Achaemenid king himself in a beautifully balanced yet artificial composition in which all elements are subservient to and a reflection of the king's majesty. www.themorgan.org...
Partial bas-relief slab depicting a genius facing left between two standing lions. No inscription. Only lower portion of relief preserved, broken into three pieces and weathered. Relief carved asymmetrically on the slab. Right side of slab flat and smoothed; probably had no adjacent slab; left side is cut as if once adjacent to another. Genius is barefoot, wearing a kannake (skirt of tufted materials) and short tunic. Lions wear rope belts similar to those found on the lamassu from the Northwest Palace.www.learningsites.com...
A god holding a lion-headed sceptre in each hand, possibly Nergal, Old Babylonian from Kish, 3rd millennium BC www.kunst-fuer-alle.de... -babylonian-from-kish,-3rd-millennium-bc/index.htm
Nergal is an ancient Sumero-Babylonian deity and the god of the netherworld, where he rules with his consort Ereshkigal. He is an evil god who brings war, pestilence, fever and devastation. He is sometimes regarded as representing the sinister aspect of the sun god Shamash. He is the subject of an Akkadian poem which describes his translation from heaven to the underworld. The foremost center of his cult was the city Kuthu. His attributes are the club and the sickle. www.pantheon.org...

maybe its just as simple as whether or not you read classic dystopian literature as a kid? haha. brave new world and 1984... i see it all around me, i remember when saying that was a joke or a bluff, you didnt really mean it..
it was like calling someone "hitler".. they may be horrible, but theyre probably not committing mass genocide.
but i mean it now, its no joke. if someone came to us from the past, they would freak out.
