Harassing Nut and Geb

Case Description: Defendant (Ra) is accused of harassing Nut and Geb about their children being born. Ra declared that they couldn't be born on any day of the year.

Case Status: Pending. Thoth challenged the Moon to five games of Senet, which he won. The prize for each was an extra day, not belonging to the year. Thoth then gave these days to Nut so her five children could be born. Lucky for us, this also made sure the year was 365 days long instead of 360, and saved us from cosmic destruction. Nut and Geb haven't forgiven Ra for being mean.
