Olympians: The Elders

I suppose this is what one calls a “dream cast.” This list only includes the gods that were born before the Titanomachy, which does include Aphrodite as she was born when Kronos castrated his father, Uranus, and threw his penis into the sea. Which, actually makes Aphrodite the oldest of the Olympians. And, fun fact, Hestia is actually the oldest of the children of Rhea and Kronos. Zeus is the youngest. From top to bottom:

Aishwarya Rai as Aphrodite

Lupita Nyong’o as Hestia

Lenny Kravitz as Hades

Salma Hayek as Demeter

Jason Momoa as Poseidon

Rosario Dawson as Hera

Idris Elba as Zeus

Younger Olympians

6 Creatures - [Mermaids]

The mermaids usually held their picnics on an island in the midst of the pool. Here they would sit and sun themselves. They talked about the fashions and the prettiest way to dress their hair. Each one had a pocket mirror, but where they kept these, while swimming, no mortal ever found out. They made wreaths of bright colored seaweed, orange and black, blue, gray and red and wore them on their brows like coronets. Or, they twined them, along with sea berries and bubble blossoms, among their tresses. Sometimes they made girdles of the strongest and knotted them around their waists.

Coca-Cola 2nd Lives - Video

Can we just take a moment to appreciate this ad. Not only is it promoting recycling, it’s also creating a system where the name ‘coca-cola’ is in even more places without much more cost to the company.
