Have any of you ever sold your soul to the devil? If so, how? What were the results? If not, do you know anyone who did?

No,but if you want to...find a deserted crossroads on a full moon night.Nothing will happen until just before dawn,that time when the sun's not up,but there's red light in the sky.Look for a man,tall man in a long dark coat.Handsome man with one eye that has a cast in it.Tell him what you want and shake his hand...that what some folks say.You'll have what you want,but you'll have hellhounds on your trail.And when you die,you might die crawling on your hands and knees,baying at the moon.That's what some folks say.

In one of the Halloween episodes of the Simpsons there was a scene in a spooky library and you could see that the title of one of the books was "Selling Your Soul in a Buyer's Market".

I found this to be highly comical.

Legend has it that Robert Johnson did,don't know how true. But I have one thing to say on this subject and that is don't you think you need to consider God instead of worring about the devil.

It's all very well trying to sell your soul, but unless the Devil's going to sign his name on the contract, I doubt it's legally binding...

Grab.

I wonder if the phrase "he sold his soul to the devil" didn't start out as a sort of longhand, metaphorical way of saying "he's really evil" and then, because the phrase existed, people got to thinking that people actually DID make such bargains.

Just a thought.

There is a story that a Puritan preacher in Dorchester {Preacher White} was approached by the devil one night and he is supposed to have said "go away I cannot be bothered with you now" where upon the devil left.
As an aside Preacher White and his counterpart Preacher Ince of Weymouth helped non conformist's to travel to America in the early 17th century.

Didn't Martin Luther say in his Tabletalks that when the Devil approached him, he farted at him? I seem to remember hearing that, although I've never read the Tabletalks.

Now that I have your attention...

Where did you get that intersting information about the translation of Pumpernickel? Do you know what language it is in? I had heard other, unsatisfying, derivations fo the word. On the other hand, it is gas that makes bread rise.

Isn't that a pleasant thought?

Sourdough: Pumpernickle is in Old German. Apparently, it smelled so bad while it was cooking, it got this name.

I got this information from a trivia game, so I really don't know how accurate it is, but I thought it was pretty cool. Anything to do with flatulence...

Nonesome EJ, after reading your instructions on how to sell your soul, I tried that damned crossroads thing. Met the guy, shook his hand, etc. So I picked up a guitar, and, dammit, I still couldn't play! The devil then points out that I didn't ask to be able to play guitar, I just gave him my soul. I'm suing you.
