Funny story. Exporting this monster was almost as difficult as getting back to Ithaca was for our intrepid hero, who - as viewers of The Iliad may note - has inexplicably lost his Solid Snake voice in this production.

Very disappointed you didn’t close out this video with a cover of “Man In Constant Sorrow.” I suppose it was because you were in a tight spot.

So now I want a new channel called Myths on Helium.
I am so impressed by how much your art has evolved over the past 6-ish years. I know that you don’t generally like these videos very much, and I get it, I really do. It’s the fact of your eyes being better critics anymore, not to mention that your hands can do far better. But I don’t know, having to notches to mark your growth I think is important and cool

Lifting a heavy bow and winning the contest to marry the bride. Odyssey, Ramayana and Mahabharata had it common. Not sure if borrowed story or a common Indo European tradition.

I like the part where all the suitors are so busy laughing at this old beggar trying to string the bow that they're not even paying attention and then Odysseus gains all their attention by plucking the string once it's strung (it makes a noise).

Fun fact! Telemachus either marries Circe or Calypso after his dad dies. Unsure if this was mentioned or not.

It was calypso since there's a version where he was later killed by circe's song, Telegonus

Odysseus: Woman, I'm married! Also, Odysseus: *Sleeps with Calypso the night before he leaves* Though if you ask me, maybe it was Odysseus' way of thanking Calypso for letting him go? I don't know.

Well funnily enough during the Argo's voyage too they sailed up a big river,then had to carry it overland and end in a land of cannibal giants like the Lastrygonians on their escape from Colchis.Some believe it was the Danube or Don and they ended up In the Norse lands that way(makes sense when they later come up to the Pillars of Hercules from an unknown sea,plus at Phaethons crash site in Italy from the wrong side,i.e left instead of the Greek right)

Okay so to put a sort of smile on the dog part, think of it this way, the dog had waited for its master, and now that it knows its master is okay and safe he can now rest peacefully, he clung to life so he could see his master safe again.

“Listen and hear of the secret congress of bright-bodied Aphrodite and Ares, wrinkling the marriage-bed of Hephaestus shamelessly. But trusted servant Helius saw their mutual delight, and at once the tale travelled to lord Hephaestus, who, hearing this heart-grief, brooded in dark thought, then slammed an anvil down on the block, and he hammered chains indestructible, to keep the pair right where they wanted to be. The god’s fury forged the trap, then he went home, where his bed stood innocent and neat. Round the bed-posts he wrapped his subtle net, so delicate it seemed a spider’s art; such could not so much as be seen, these threads, even, he hoped, by gods. Up to the rafters he stretched his chains, this first of artificers, and spread a cunning web all round the place. When he was satisfied with this criss-cross, he made great show of sailing to Lemnos, the well-built city he favoured above all other lands. And Ares, whose love of Cytheria kept him attentive to her husband’s business, saw him depart. Gladly then he sped swiftly to his sweetheart and the celebrated artist’s bedroom. Now, the bright-bodied goddess had just come from her father, mighty Cronus’ son, and had just sat herself down when her love arrived. He took her by the hand, and spoke: ‘Come, love, let us lie together and cheer each other, for now Hephaestus is far from here; off, I think, to visit Lemnos and see the wild-sounding Sintians.’ And bright-bodied Aphrodite welcomed him close beside her on the marriage-bed, where they lay together in gentle sleep. Then did the cunning art of Hephaestus trap the amorous pair unawares, who learned-too late, in panic-they could not so much as move a finger, though wrestled with leg and arm to break the bonds that clung : but in alarm they knew they were caught. Then the halting, dire, heavy tread of the crooked-footed fire god came close, and closer; and he stood there looming over them; for he had turned round before Lemnos, when Helius sent word of the issue of his watch. So, sad at heart, bitterly angry Hephaestus sent a shout up to all the gods, and hear now his part : ‘Father Zeus! and all the gods in happiness forever, come! and mock this ridiculous sight (which yet is intolerable to see). See how the daughter of Zeus, Aphrodite, scorning my misshapen feet, dishonours me, and instead loves all-destroying Ares! He is beautiful and healthy in build, but I was born lame. This I haven’t caused, but was born this way-my parents share the blame! (If only they’d never given me life!) So the gods came to the house of shining brass. Earthshaking Poseidon came; and Hermes, bringer of luck; and Apollo, who works far : but the goddesses stayed in their homes, mortified. Now the gods, giver of blessings, at the doorway sent up laughter to rattle the sky, seeing the art of inventive Hephaestus, who queried the gods in humour : ‘You think they want to lie a little longer? No. Their desire has fled, but my snare and my chains will keep them stuck together until my marriage gifts are given back to me by her father-given for the sake of this dogfaced girl!-his heartless daughter.’ So the gods sent sidelong glances hither and thither; and one, then another, spoke out : ‘Evil work does not end well. The patient seizes the swift;-as this limping artist now has Ares in his grip, the fastest of all the blest gods who hold Olympus! The god of crooked feet has used his wiles to catch Ares, who now must pay the debt.’ So now the gods held an impromptu court. Apollo said to Hermes, son of Zeus : ‘Wise translator Hermes, would you feel nice to lie in bed by golden Aphrodite, even if bound in solid chains?’ And Hermes answered : ‘Lord Apollo, master archer, let three times as many bonds hold me there, and let all the goddesses look on, and still I say yes, I would sleep by beautiful Aphrodite.’ So he spoke; and laughs again broke out among the gods. But Poseidon didn’t laugh. Instead, he prayed to crafty Hephaestus (‘in the name of Zeus’) to free Ares, and said : ‘Free him and I promise that he’ll pay all that is due to the gods.’ And the god of the crooked feet spoke next : “Sorry, earthshaker, I will not do that. If the slippery Ares refuses to pay, where’s the virtue in your promise? I cannot keep the earthshaker in chains until the debt is paid.’ And the god of the sea said : ‘Hephaestus, if Ares chooses to flee, and fails to pay, I myself will pay.’ At last the crooked one had this to say : ‘So be it. To refuse you is unseemly.’ So mighty Hephaestus released the chains, and springing out of bed the two freed ones departed at once without even speaking. Ares went to Thrace, while laughter-loving Aphrodite went to Cyprus; and to Paphos, where her home and altar are steeped in fragrance. There the Graces bathed her, and anointed her skin with glistening oil; and clothed her in charming garments, lovely to behold.”

What about that bit at the end where Penelope was like "thanks for killing all the suitors, servants, carry out my bed for this mighty warrior to sleep on!" and Odysseus was like "Aha, nice one! Testing my memory are we? Our bed is built into the palace, it cannot be moved!" at which point Penelope was like "Oh Odysseus it really IS you!" and the happy couple goes to sleep on their built-into-the-palace bed.

I remember in my version of the Odyssey, Odysseus was offered to be bathe by one of his caretaker(who took care of Odysseus since he was a child) by Penelope while he was acting like a lone beggar, his old caretaker noticed a scar on his thigh which was an old injury he got while hunting a boar in the mountains with his doggo, Odysseus tells his caretaker to not tell anyone and asks her which of the maids where whoring themselves to the suitors and promises to slay them alongside the suitors minus those who did not, afterwards goes out with his son Telemachus to visit his father the former king of Ithaca Laertes who became an old farmer after Odysseus's mom died which they share a heartwarming reunion, afterwards Odysseus slays the suitors and reveals himself to Penelope

From personal experience, the Sirens don't sing, they tell you hop on in, the water is fine, have a swim when the problem is there's no land close by for at least 100 miles. Just get inside the skin, go to bed or go back to work when you start hearing the call.
