Iris was the ancient Greek goddess of the rainbow, connecting the gods above to mortals below as a messenger of the Olympian gods. She was often identified specifically as Hera’s (the queen of the gods) handmaiden and personal messenger. Since Iris’ father was a marine-god and her mother a cloud-nymph, she was also associated with the sea and sky.
Many Greeks believed that the rainbow’s arc, connecting clouds and the sea, represented Iris’ path or journey as she went from her home above to collect water from the sea in order to replenish clouds that had rained. [x]
Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”
AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE
