The one at the table is playing the bowl rims. There's no dough, only holes in the mosaic. Pretty sure those are statues affixed to the end of the pipe organ, not children.

The properties of martian dust cause a bluish halo around the sun, and at sunset the reddish sky lights up blue—just the opposite of the sun's appearance on Earth.

Atmosphere of Mars
The atmosphere of the planet Mars is composed mostly of carbon dioxide. The atmospheric pressure on the Martian surface averages 600 pascals, about 0.6% of Earth's mean sea level pressure of 101.3 kilopascals. Wikipedia
Oxygen: 0.146%
Carbon dioxide: 95.97%
Carbon monoxide: 0.0557%
Nitrogen: 1.89%
Argon: 1.93%
Chemical species: Mole fraction

Not really, unless you count the solar wind (which is only wind by analogy). Interplanetary space is full of dust.

I think it's "name above every name." So we have a bunch of figures from non-Christian religions and then a bunch of human Judeo-Christian authorities like the Apostles.

According to an interview with Game Freak, Pikachu was originally supposed to have an additional evolution beyond Raichu- called Gorochu.

No official art's been released, but this guy drew a couple of pictures based on the description given.



The first is Gen 1 style, the second is Gen 7 style.

Christ my God, set my heart on fire with love in You, that in its flame I may love You with all my heart, with all my mind, and with all my soul and with all my strength, and my neighbor as myself, so that by keeping Your commandments I may glorify You the Giver of every good and perfect gift. Amen.

Nice.
