The even randomer thread

Recommended Posts

Journalist: Isn’t all of this contrary to the cosmic pain, which so often you mention in your writings? And what is it cosmic pain?

Tesla: No, because we are on Earth … It is an illness whose existence the vast majority of people are not aware of. Hence, many other illnesses, suffering, evil, misery, wars and everything else what makes human life an absurd and horrible condition. This disease cannot be completely cured, but awareness shall make it less complicated and hazardous. Whenever one of my close and dear people were hurt, I felt physical pain. This is because our bodies are made as of similar material, and our soul related with unbreakable strands. Incomprehensible sadness that overwhelmed us at times means that somewhere, on the other side on this planet, a child or generous man died.

The entire Universe is in certain periods sick of itself, and of us. Disappearance of a star and the appearance of comets affect us more than we can imagine. Relationships among the creatures on the Earth are even stronger, because of our feelings and thoughts the flower will scent even more beautiful or will fall in silence.

These truths we must learn in order to be healed. Remedy is in our hearts and evenly, in the heart of the animals that we call the Universe.

It turns out that people with a certain tick-borne disease are naturally immune to the new flu bug, so doctors are recommending Corona with Lyme.

Thanks.  That is the cherry on top.

To be very clear the Qur'an does not expressly forbid pork, but it does clearly state that if something is forbidden for others in other books of revelation then it is forbidden for you.  Since pork is forbidden for Jewish people it is, therefore, forbidden for Muslims.  

Not to derail the thread ... 

What about shellfish?

Sent you a beer as a thank you.  FYI ... the drinking of alcohol is expressly forbidden in the Qur'an, as is anything else that clouds the mind.

So you're not allowed to watch the Sabres, either?

This has me thinking about it.

I looked it up (I'm not a hafiz - a person who has momorized the Qur'an) and I found that eating of the flesh of swine is forbidden in the Qur'an.

Now the shellfish are not forbidden in the Qur'an, but most Muslims do not eat them as they are forbidden for our Jewish brothers and sisters.  So, since it is forbidden for them it is forbidden for us.

The Sabres are very disappointing, but they do not cloud my mind.

Ah, the forbidden shrimp!

Well, the proscription against pork and bivalves always made sense to me when considering hygienic practices in ancient times.  Food that was potentially dangerous was deemed unclean and forbidden.  Sensible.  I never really got why the Jews banned lobster and crabs, though.

First it was Gwyneth Paltrow. Now it's Erykah Badu. Why? Sweet Jesus why? When I walk into a room, cucumber melon is a nice scent. Sometimes pine is a little overpowering. Fresh linen is usually pretty good. I've never wanted a waft of ***** fumes to permeate the air for my guests and loved ones. 

I don't know. Maybe it's me. It's probably me. Everyone should have a ***** scented room in their house.

I'm reading Randall Munroe's "What If?" right now, and it's so much fun. It feels like something our own Randall would be good it.

Hockey content: there's no way that you could shoot a hockey puck fast enough to push the goalie into the net.

(It also suggests that if you started to slowly tilt a hockey rink, it could get up to 50 degrees before the players would all slide to one end. Clearly, experiments are needed to confirm this.)

Uh, I think we could assist with some anecdotal evidence of this phenomenon.
