And I thought the Catholics had some nutty beliefs.

About the time someone said I had to pick up a poisonous snake it would be exit stage left for me.

I'm not anti-social. I'm pro-solitude. Sleepy

Really, that's what puts you off? It wasn't the way they say Six, or Fish n' Chips or how the entire population consists of dumb surfers?
Or even the fact that their flag has one too many stars (and in the wrong color) or how they claim all our success as their own. Phar Lap anyone!! Or PAVLOVA! that shits our bitches!
Or that stupid game Aussie Rules. It's like, is it basketball or is it league MAKE UP YOUR MIND AUSTRALIA! Not to mention all Australians walk around in disgusting short short shorts.

As I've stated before, it's the land of Mad Max, so it can't all be bad.

I'm glad I'm not really patriotic (even though most peeps think I am lol) as it could've been offensive to me but as I'm not I don't care! Smile (I don't really see a good use for patriotism)
And I totally agree with you on Aussie Rules though, what a joke!!! Thumbsup

So whatever...

EDIT: You forgot the mention that we have some of the highest taxes in the world. Oh, and not to forget some of the highest housing prices. Get fucking real, Australia!!! Grrrrrr

This story comes from NPR's Soundportraits.org about Appalachian snake handlers.

RE: Snake-Handling: Don't try this at home, kids
How did I miss this thread? This is my favorite obscure Theist crazy crap. I am completely fascinated by this snake handling. Shy Thanks for this Erxy - I love this shit.

Another thing about it that really speaks to me is that it's all centered around that one line: They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.


That is so completely unexceptional in the contextual story line and yet people choose to give it such power.
Think about that.

"Nothing" will take whatever power one is willing to give it. Yes Contrary to the general consensus, belief is a two way street.

A new type of thinking is essential if mankind is to survive and move to higher levels. ~ Albert Einstein
