The National Religion

In the United States we worship by ritualized abuse of an animal bladder at night. Failure to have a working knowledge of the ritual and clergy is deeply frowned upon. Freethinkers are suppressed.

What about other parts of the world, what do you worship?

Looks like that load of mushrooms made it to Louisiana.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

RE: The National Religion

When practice locally it's usually part of the harvest season festivities. The young warrior-aged bachelors represent different geographically remote communities or clans, approach each other in organized, ritual combat with ecstatic rejoicing after seeming random exhibition of team and individual prowess. The behavior reaches an expected but apparently surprising crescendo at irregular intervals by one group or the other seizing the bladder and carrying it away, but not beyond view of the admiring elders and young women spectators of both tribes.

The choicest eligible, unmarried women exhibit their physical attractiveness with psudo-sexual display and ritual chants directed at both the elders and the combatants.

The one-quarter behind walks up to the bent over centrally located man and places his cupped hands warmly between his tense legs, expectant and ready to receive hurried the delivery of the projectile bladder...he grunts loudly as the bladder is released--he's ready to launch.

I like it when, upon reaching the objective, they throw the bladder at the frozen tundra intentionally and move in a celebratory fashion pretending to wipe thier backsides on the vertical markers




Pass the chips.....where's the alcoholic beverage?

This Super Bowl was a bookie's dream. The favorites won, but didn't cover the spread. It is happy night in two towns tonight, Vegas and Boston.

I believe this also describes the bushkari (spelling?) game played in Afghanistan for centuries.
