I tell you, Christians are a cult that worships death (more than Kali who is also a Fertility Goddess who battled at the side of Brahma and Vishnu though she is commonly associated with Shiva, Destroyer of Worlds). Pay attention. It’s all there will be Pie in the Sky, bye and bye, bye and bye, on Big Rock Candy Mountain. Pay no attention to your sucky life and your oppressors.
Act IV, Scene 4
To be, or not to be, that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against a sea of troubles and by opposing end them?
To die, to sleep– no more– and by a sleep to say we end the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to. ‘Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished.
To die, to sleep…
To sleep– perchance to dream: ay, there’s the rub, for in that sleep of death what dreams may come when we have shuffled off this mortal coil must give us pause.
There’s the respect that makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time, the oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely, the pangs of despised love, the law’s delay, the insolence of office, and the spurns that patient merit of the unworthy takes when he himself might his quietus make with a bare bodkin?
Who would fardels bear, to grunt and sweat under a weary life, but that the dread of something after death, the undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveller returns, puzzles the will and makes us rather bear those ills we have than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all, and thus the native hue of resolution is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought, and enterprise of great pitch and moment with this regard their currents turn awry and lose the name of action.
Soft you now, the fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons be all my sins remembered.
Hell is worse than that because you are permanently separated from Yahweh. Oh, and that Lake of Eternal Fire thing.
So if you consider yourself among the Elect you don’t fear Death at all. It brings you closer to God.
This is why venomous snake handling is popular among certain variations of Pentecostalism. It proves your faith by denying fear of death.
Don’t tell me you haven’t seen this work itself out over the last month or two with the mostly manufactured clamor to reopen Churches. While most of the Pastors are motivated by the collection plate (because they’re shameless Elmer Gantrys) their idiot congregants actually believe this stuff.
To which I say “Darwin”. Unsurprisingly Churches in defiance of Social Distancing, Masks, and Gloves have become new Coronavirus Superspreaders.
Want to prove you’re tough? Get out there and catch a bullet or two for me.
Morons. I live in a World of Morons.
Crowds pack venues in Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks, ignoring social distancing
By Derek Hawkins, Washington Post
May 24, 2020
Vacationers flocked to the Lake of the Ozarks over the holiday weekend, flouting social distancing guidelines as they packed into yacht clubs, outdoor bars and resort pools in the Missouri tourist hot spot.
Images of the revelry rippled across social media, showing people eating, drinking and swimming in close quarters. In one picture shared by the news station
KSDK, dozens of people could be seen crammed on an outdoor patio underneath a sign reading, “Please practice social distancing.”
The scenes underscored how some have interpreted the loosening of coronavirus restrictions ahead of the Memorial Day holiday as an invitation to return to a pre-pandemic version of normal. Amid varied and sometimes conflicting orders from state and local officials, people across the country have been left to decide on their own how strictly to follow the rules.
The images elicited a barrage of criticism from people angered by the open disregard for the guidelines that public health experts have spent months promoting.
“I don’t even know what to say anymore,” Meghan McCain, co-host of ABC’s “The View,” tweeted.
Like most of the country, Missouri has allowed some businesses to reopen and rolled back pandemic-related bans on nonessential activities, even as researchers warn the virus is still spreading at epidemic rates in Missouri and 23 other states.
After Missouri’s stay-at-home order expired May 3, Gov. Mike Parson (R) said a range of businesses, including large venues, could resume service as long as seating was spaced out to enforce social distancing. State guidelines mirror those issued by the federal government, instructing people to stay six feet apart when they are outside their homes.
Many businesses around the Lake of the Ozarks closed in the spring when the pandemic hit. But as the state moved to reopen, they allowed guests to rebook reservations. Several hotels and resorts
told local media last week that they were fully booked through the weekend.
In videos shared widely on social media, people could be seen lined up outside Backwater Jack’s, waiting to enter the already packed bar and grill.
“Corona-free,” one man in line shouted in as the camera panned to him.
The waterfront establishment hosted a pool party Saturday called “Zero Ducks Given” that featured DJs and live bands. A Facebook page described the event as a summer kickoff party and showed nearly 400 people had attended.
A representative from Backwater Jack’s did not immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday. The event organizer said in a May 7 Facebook post the venue had “worked with and taken the advice of government officials and management teams and will be following social distancing guidelines,” adding, “extra precautions and safety measures will be taken.”
Missouri has reported more than 11,700 cases of the coronavirus and 676 deaths. A study by researchers at Imperial College London said it was one of 24 U.S. states that had yet to rein in the coronavirus and risked a second wave of infections.
Thick crowds also were seen at beaches and other attractions on the East Coast, including the Ocean City boardwalk and a beach on the reopened Jersey Shore.
Actually Clorinated Water is pretty disinfectant and it was mostly because of Ick Factor that we would go through a 45 minute to an hour test routine when kids would take a dump in it, but take a look at the people on the deck!
That does not excuse you from doing your Civic Duty to prevent killing others no matter how much you personally want to die.
Buy a Gun. Use a Knife. Find something poisonous to drink, like Clorox. Take a long dive off a short pier. Put your head under three times and pull it up twice. It’s the sudden stop you know, bridge abutments and sidewalks are your friends, just like they are for Sperm Whales and bowls of Petunias.
“Oh no. Not again.”
