I know I’m a bit delayed on this, but why does Aquaman’s “Tri”dent have five tines?
Okay. The verdict is in.
Aquaman’s pitchfork in this image is officially a Quindent (from the Latin “Quint" rather than the Greek “Penta”).
But for me, it just has “many” tines. So I’m going with Polydent.
@neiltyson Most of the reindeer used to pull sleds are castrated males which make them easier to handle, and have antler cycles similar to those of the females.....
Nice bit of info. Thanks.
But now you force us all to imagine Santa castrating Rudolph.
Santa doesn’t know Zoology:
Both male & female Reindeer grow antlers. But all male Reindeer lose their antlers in the late fall, well-before Christmas.
So Santa’s reindeer, which all sport antlers, are therefore all female, which means Rudolf has been misgendered.
Cosmos: Possible Worlds
“Seven Wonders of the New World”
The 13th (and final) episode — my personal favorite — airs tonight on FOX, 9pm ET. And if interested, beginning tomorrow, all 13 episodes stream on Hulu.
In my judgement, 2020 desperately needs this.

A happy December Solstice to all residents of Planet Earth.
Henceforth, day by day, the Northern Hemisphere gains daylight. The Southern Hemisphere loses daylight. And equatorial residents, as always, sit through 12hrs of day and 12hrs of night — all year round
