Patent Granted for Jewish Switch Cover
Beth Israel Hospital on a Friday evening,
and the elevators were set
to stop automatically at every floor,
so no button pushing would be required.
If you have surveyed cultures,
you must have noted
that the taboos are normative.
You describe who you are,
by what you are forbidden.
Thus, in Armonk
we do not have sex with children,
or self mutilate to display clan affiliation.
We DO, however,
worship the Volvo God,
the LL Bean God, the soccer god,
the progressivism god, the botox god,
the eat-a-lot-of-fibre god,
"white people are intrinsically bad" god.
---our own kind of bourgeois voodoo.
Oh by the way,
2006 is my sabbath year.
Could someone please
do my thinking for me until 2007?
I love what BBLB said. The switch cover
is almost as dumb as people praying for
a touchdown or a home run.
Or world peace.
"Dear G-d, I pray for world peace.
Please make everybody in the world
act like I WANT THEM TO, SO I WON'T
BE FORCED TO KILL THEM."
Being all left-brain is not
to me he seems to have
a wabbit-catcher's mentality
about the Evanescent All,
and enjoys mocking the world's weligious weirdities.
Meanwhile , the "science" community is busy out there faking data, using photoshop to alter stem cell culture photos, stealing each others'grants, wives'n'girlfriends, underpaying their taxes, chuckling at the rubes, and marvelling at how Einstein stole all his greatest work. So maybe , in this case,knowing you can't touch the lightswitch on Friday might even add a pinch of the missing self-discipline. You think?
following a religion you do it by the book no work arounds,or short cuts you do or you dont simple as that.I gave up when I was 16 dont think much of bacon sandwiches but then again a personal choice like switching on & off lights.
