FC: The Not So Clash of The Titans | 2012

1: The King of Argos has a daughter, but wants a son . His daughter Danae is to have a son that dethrones the king. Argos built a bronze house, so that she cannot have a husband. Zues visits her and gives her the gift of child bearing. She had a kid and Argos found out. He trapped his daughter and her baby, Perseus, on a boat to be lost at sea. They were found by a fisherman Dictys.

2: He took care of them and taught Perseus the fishing trade. Eventually the king of the island, noticed Perseus's mother and wanted to marry her, although he didn't want Perseus. He plotted a way to get rid of him. The king declared an engagement and everyone invited brought a gift. Perseus didn't have a gift, so he promised to bring him the best gift. Medusa's head.

3: Perseus was helped by Hermes in how to find Medusa. He must first find the three gray women who would tell him the location of the nymphs of the north. They had special gifts that Perseus needs for his journey. He found the gray women and took their eye. The three women had only one eye that they would share. They begged for their eye and Perseus promised to give it back if the told him where to find the Nymphs of the north.

4: The 3 women tell him and he returns their eye and leaves. With the help of Hermes he finds the land of the Nymphs. Hermes gives Perseus an unbreakable sword to take Medusa's head with. Because just looking at Medusa would turn anyone to stone, Athena appears and gives Perseus a bronze shield. He can look at the reflection of her instead of the actual Medusa.Perseus found the nymphs and greeted him with a banquet. He attended a feast. They were nice and generous giving him a wallet and winged sandals.

6: Perseus went to Medusa's lair and flew over her head, looking at the shields reflection, Perseus cuts her down with one stroke of his sword. He takes her head and puts it in his wallet. Perseus then escapes her lair.

7: Don't think: Look! -Ludwig Wittgenstein

8: There is something of the marvelous in all things of nature. -Aristotle | On his way home, Perseus came across a woman, Andromeda, who was being sacrificed to the sea god for her mother, Queen Cassiopeia boasting about her daughters beauty. Perseus fell in love with her and saved her. Perseus married Andromeda and sailed back to the island.

9: Perseus's house was empty. His mother rejected the proposal The king had offered her and he got angry at her and Dictys and evicted them. They took stayed in a temple. Perseus had learned that the king was having a banquet with all his followers, so Perseus showed up and showed Medusa's, turning them all to stone.

10: Perseus found his mother and they decided to go back to Argos, to see if Acrisis would take them back, but when they got there, he was missing. Perseus entered a discus throwing competition later on and one of his throws landed in the audience, hitting Acrisis and knocking him out. So the oracle was correct. Perseus and Andromeda lived happily ever after.

20: As long as I live, I'll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I'll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I'll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can. -John Muir
