I'm off to school

Good-oh, hey wait a minute, what's that?

That's my religious knife, can't be religious without my religious knife.

No, you can't take your religious knife to school any more.  A fourteen year old kid stabbed a 16 year old kid (who was no doubt just minding his own business) yesterday.  No more religious knives in schools.

Oh that's so discriminatory! I'm going.

Don't forget your sacred weed and pipe for little lunch.

ye, ye  ::)

I enjoyed the super blood moon, took some pics, probably rubbish.
I bottled 60ish 750ml bottles of stout for Aug 2022
Started the same amount of dark ale for May 2022

IT Crowd is decades ago but you can still be the office hero by suggesting to turn it off and on again.
Maybe it applies to relationships too?

I thought that the "Blood Moon" was going to be tonight. It was cloudy last night, so it looks like I missed out.

i didnt see it yrsterday but watched it set at sunrise this morning. i was surprised because where it set was where i have been assuming south for the last few dsys, parked alongside the river.

i always forget that the ohio river here around here flows south only on the average. lots of places it flows due west, and it tripped me up


if only i'd found out years earlier that i had pelvic congestion!

HAF died so Asmo had to reboot from a 3 day old backup. Where have we seen that happen before?
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.
“Religion is a culture of faith; science is a culture of doubt.” ― Richard P. Feynman

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

So, we've been resurrected?

After 3 days?

Does this entitle me to tax exemption?

as usual i am concerned about my children's literary education.

i have bought my introverted reclusive number two daughter a copy of pirsigs zen and the art of motorcycle mainentance.

the number two advenurous son gets peter freuchens book of the eskimos.

the number three thoughtful son gets peter freuchens book of the seven seas.

used hardbacks, all of them, ancient books.

if i'd had more money when they were younger i would have gotten them all wyetss illustrated bounty trilogy, stevensons david balfour and the earlier ones, and maybe cooper's mohicans. wyeth was magnificent









if only i'd found out years earlier that i had pelvic congestion!

The Melting Pot.
 :felix:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melting_pot

Quote
The melting pot is a monocultural metaphor for a heterogeneous society becoming more homogeneous, the different elements "melting together" with a common culture; an alternative being a homogeneous society becoming more heterogeneous through the influx of foreign elements with different cultural backgrounds, possessing the potential to create disharmony within the previous culture. Historically, it is often used to describe the cultural integration of immigrants to the United States.[1]


Quote
In the early 20th century, the meaning of the recently popularized concept of the melting pot was subject to ongoing debate which centered on the issue of immigration. The debate surrounding the concept of the melting pot centered on how immigration impacted American society and on how immigrants should be approached. The melting pot was equated with either the acculturation or the total assimilation of European immigrants, and the debate centered on the differences between these two ways of approaching immigration: "Was the idea to melt down the immigrants and then pour the resulting, formless liquid into the preexisting cultural and social molds modeled on Anglo-Protestants like Henry Ford and Woodrow Wilson, or was the idea instead that everyone, Mayflower descendants and Sicilians, Ashkenazi and Slovaks, would act chemically upon each other so that all would be changed, and a new compound would emerge?"[14]


Quote
The newly popularized concept of the melting pot was frequently equated with "Americanization", meaning cultural assimilation, by many "old stock" Americans. In Henry Ford's Ford English School (established in 1914), the graduation ceremony for immigrant employees involved symbolically stepping off an immigrant ship and passing through the melting pot, entering at one end in costumes designating their nationality and emerging at the other end in identical suits and waving American flags.[25][26]



I'm more into a salad bowl idea.

Quote
The “salad bowl” metaphor is a different view describing that immigrants who come to America combine their cultures with others, but still retain their own cultural identity.

“I've had several "spiritual" or numinous experiences over the years, but never felt that they were the product of anything but the workings of my own mind in reaction to the universe.” ~Recusant

Resistance is futile.   :maskwink:

Ultimately, America is supposed to be bound together by the ideas of liberty and equality, not cultural uniformity.  Hopefully, we can eventually live up to that ideal.  We are now more of a mixture than a compound.
