'2 + 2 = 5 for extremely large values of 2'
When you wish upon a falling star, Your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

don't give my brother a gun

Joe and I were playing Bond against Frank earlier. lol that was fucking fun. Me and Joe were on the red team, I think it was, and Frank was blue. And Frank was using a steering wheel. lol Joey, little fucker, kept killing me.

And this is the bastard who wants to go into the marines. I kept screaming out "DUDE THAT'S ME!"

"Joey, look I'm gonna write a letter to the marines. 'Hey, make him an officer...make him command people...but don't give him a gun. He'll shoot his team members... not that he's a traitor, but he just happens to be trigger happy.'"

And then Frank jumps in with "This'd be Joe 'PERSON MOVING!!!! BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM! of mine, or one of theirs...doesn't're dead now you fucker.'"

Book Of The Dead

Even talks about the Hall of Maat. This was done by weighing one's heart (conscience) against the feather of Maat (truth and justice). The heart must not be heavier then the feather of Maat. This was not a physical weighing of the organ by living Egyptians, it was a ceremony that took place in the afterlife and was performed by the gods.

Good reading! Enjoy!

Legend of Ra and Hathor

Ra was the sun-god, King of the gods and creator of all things, including mankind. long ago, Ra lived on the earth and ruled a glorious kingdom. For a long while this kingdom thrived and men gave Ra the respect due him , but Ra began to grow old, and they mocked him. Ra was very angry when he heard the blasphemy of mankind. He gathered the gods to him to hear their counsel.

The gods met in secrecy, so that mankind would know nothing of this meeting. All the company of great gods, gathered around Ra as he told the story of mankind's insolence. Ra spoke to his father; "Nu, you are first born, oldest of the gods, I am your son, I seek your council. The men that I have created, speak evil of me. They anger me greatly, but I will not destroy them before you have spoken."

At length Nun answered, saying; "You are a great god, you are greater than I, You are the son who is mightier than his father. If you turn your eye upon the men who blaspheme you they shall perish from the earth." Doing as Nun had suggested Ra turned his terrible gaze upon the men of the earth and they ran in disarray, hiding in the shadows where the eye of Ra could not harm them.

Again the gods met to give counsel to Ra and they said he should send his eye down among the men so they could not hide. So the eye of Ra, in the form of the goddess Hathor went into the hiding places, striking fear in the hearts of men. Much of mankind was slain. Hathor returned to Ra after the first day as mighty as a lioness. Taking the form of Sekhmet, she declared, "I have been mighty among mankind. It is pleasing to me." But having tasted blood, Sekhmet could not be appeased. She insited that in the morning she would return to finish her bloodthirsty work.

Ra now realized that Hathor-Sekhmet would destroy the human race completely. Angry as he was he wished to rule mankind, not see it destroyed. There was only one way to stop Hathor-Sekhmet, he had to trick her. He ordered his attendants to brew seven thousand jars of beer and color it red using mandrakes and the blood of those who had been slain. In the morning Ra had his servants take the beer to the place where Hathor would viciously slaughter the remnant of mankind. Ra's servants poured the beer mixture on the fields. And so, Hathor-Sekhmet came to this place where the beer flooded the fields. Looking down, her gaze was caught by her own reflection, and it pleased her. She drank deeply of the beer, became drunk, fell asleep, and abandoned her blood thirsty quest.

Mushroom Porn

Mushroom Porn is here! Check it out over at

Mushroom Porn is a comic which originally started in the truck on the way to Church one Sunday afternoon. The creatures live in mushrooms in the forest. The mushrooms glow at night, and sing to them. Since they're "those" kinds of mushrooms, they are very kind and let the creatures lick them. Consequentially, everybody is generally high.

Give it a read. Leave your comments. Even if you don't like it, that's fine. You don't have to. =P

The Traveler

Washing the tears with the pouring rain your heart broken passion spent falling numb by cold words wrapped up in tasteless bread and drowning in flavourless wine.

Each day has come bringing the traveler news from the far east...and yet he waits. Feeling his heart remain steadfast, and feeling those long white fingers tracing the scar on his back as if a dream. The rain is so loud now that he can barely hear himself think as it's falling serenely on the brim of his hat.

"The rain washes away the pain" he mused thinking back to the electric night he first spent with his flower braving lush pain and eternal corruption. Nothing is the same now, but the rain falls just as it did before, but he feels closer to the lover because of it. And he waits...getting lost in the dreams and flashbacks of a night spent in the black forest among the rain and trees in utter solitude except for his beloved.

He found himself remembering lost words from long ago and the curve of her back seemed so real. He grew saddened at the reminder of empty promises they made while caressed under the sorrow and wrapped in the cloak of warmth as he laid in solemn stillness next to his beloved's heart.

Whooping Cough

So I went to the doctor nurse type person today, and I have whooping cough. I've been sick for a month or so, and finally gave in and went to the doctor. I'm on zmax, and was given a prescrip for Tussinex.

WebMD has this to say about whooping cough: Symptoms of whooping cough typically last 6 to 10 weeks (but may last longer) and occur in three stages. The final stage, lasting for a few weeks or months, is a gradual recovery period. Although the person gains strength and begins to feel better, the cough may become louder and sound worse. Coughing spells become less frequent but may flare up again if a cold or other upper respiratory illness develops. Complications, such as pneumonia or exertion-related injuries from coughing, such as a hernia, can develop from whooping cough.
