Sure he's worthy, but he'd also tell you you're not any less worthy.

"This wasn't an impulsive response," Vaillant says. "The tiger was able to hold this idea over a period of time." The animal waited for 12 to 48 hours before attacking.

When Markov finally appeared, the tiger killed him, dragged him into the bush and ate him. "The eating may have been secondary," Vaillant explains. "I think he killed him because he had a bone to pick."

Linked from that earlier big black sarcophagus story from +Tim Snider, is this one about a series of tombs that was discovered. And look: they even did all the dungeon stocking for ya!

Of particular note was one tomb belonging to a high priest of Thoth, the ibis-headed ancient Egyptian god of wisdom, arbitration, writing, science, magic and the judgement of the dead.

Identified by hieroglyphics on the canopic jars in the tomb as Djehuty-Irdy-Es, the priest was also given the title "One of the Great Five," reserved for the most senior of Thoth's priests.

Four of these canopic jars, carved from alabaster and lidded with the heads of the four sons of the god Horus, were also unearthed in the tomb, still in good condition and containing the preserved organs of the mummified priest.

In addition, the team found at least 1,000 ushabti figurines - glazed earthenware figures of servants or followers placed in Egyptian graves to accompany the deceased in the afterlife.

The mummy itself showed high rank, adorned with a bronze collar depicting the goddess Nut spreading her wings for protection in the afterlife. Blue and red beads of precious stone, bronze gilded sheets, two bronze eyes decorated with ivory and crystal, and four amulets of semi-precious stones were also found on the mummy.

There were 13 burials in the tomb. Another tomb yielded what is thought to be a family group; in all, 40 sarcophagi were unearthed from the 8 tombs found in the complex.
