Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
From: freda underhill

The Sisters, an Australian order of nuns, have been described as..

the "Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence," a self- described "order of gay male nuns" whose vows are to "expiate stigmatic guilt and promulgate universal joy."

the quote goes on (from the Sister's own site) ..These sodomites dress up as Catholic nuns, and "rebaptize" themselves with such names as Sister Homocycle Motorsexual; Sister Sleaze Du Jour; Sister Florence Nightmlare, R.N.; Sister Boom Boom; Sister Mad, Power-Hungry Bitch; Sister Missionary Position; Sister Chanel 2001; Sister Sadie Sadie the Rabbi Lady; Sister Helen Damnation; Sister Opiate of the Masses; Sister Atrociata von Tasteless; Sister Exposia; and Sister Perpetually Pruretic Prostate.

When Pope John Paul II visited San Francisco in 1987, the "Sisters" "canonized" Harvey Milk, the murdered homosexual city supervisor, and then conducted a parody of the Roman Catholic Mass. They handed out foil- wrapped condoms at "communion," and referred to them as "our holy savior," who was to "vouchsafe the safety of our sexual play." The enthusiastic "congregation" was then instructed to inflate the condoms with "the guilt and shame organized religion has foisted" on them, and then pop them.

Are the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence anything like the Sisters of the Holy Smokes or the Sisters of the Divine Figure?

Welcome to the MOAB, Sister of Perpetual Indulgence. I used to hang around with your brother, Perpetual Indulgence back in my single days. I didn't even know he had a sister. Hell, If I had known I would have probably asked you out.

Reverend Twobyfour, that is certainly a refreshing new take on the whole subject of BS. It was courageous of you to take the bull by the horns as it were and EXPOSE Satan's use of this deleterious thread to mislead the INNOCENT!!! There is one thing that worries me, however. You stated that you had read this entire thread "from beginning to end"...

If so, I fear that you have most certainly lost your mind and that casts doubt on your reliability as a spiritual advisor.

Are you aware that Oscar Meyer died for the collective sins of all weiner dogs? (which sins, even if they were listed sequentially in shorthand, would make even this thread look like a flyspeck in comparison) We owe Oscar Meyer a lot.

jennyo and bee-dubya-ell

your poems just hit the spot.

i pray that you will be free fromf guilt and dogma, that you express your full potential and juiciest desires, and that you reject cant, hypocrisy and superstition. enjoy your mind, your heart and your body, however comfortable it may be, and give thanks to hormoans, cicadas, and song.

May you indulge in life, tasting its pleasures, and give freely to your fellow beings without superciliousness, self righteousness or arrogance. for you have inherited the loves and joys of life.

LIVE IT UP!

in praise

Sister Yogini Bare
from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

Dear Reverend:

You think you know what the truth is? You can't HANDLE the truth. Because the truth is that your brand of control-obsessed, fixated authoritarian, hypnotized, fixed-idea fanatic slathering sanctimonious condescending bullshit is toxic to the truth. The truth is that you, sir, are a liar and you are pounding the desk trying to get everyone you meet to buy in to your lies in the hopes that if they do, they won't notice how full of falsity you are. Your kind of falsehood corrodes the hopes of the young and ruins the futures of the many, undermines the soul, compromises the integrity and hoodwinks the innocent.

I wouldn't embrace it for pay, and that's the truth.

All right??

Onward and upward, then!!

Got cicadas in my britches
Lord I hate them sonsabitches
There's cicadas with me everwhere I goes.
They're a flyin' through the air
Got a couple in my hair
And I've got cicada goo between my toes

They're a chirpin' in the trees
Lord I wish they'd shut up, please
Oh their noise is so painful to my ear
And you know my windowshield
With cicadas is congealed
I'm just thankful they don't come 'round every year

Well the sidewalks of my town
In cicadas have been drowned
When you step on them they make an awful crunch
And the bottom of my shoe
Is covered with cicada goo
It'd make an undertaker lose his lunch

Lord they're such a noisy crowd
Why'd ya make 'em so damned loud?
I've got cotton stuffed inside both of my ears
Maybe I'll just move some place
Where them bugs don't show their face
Like Antarctica! It's guiet there I hear.

While we're on the subject of spiders, here is a rather dark tale of funnel-webs and revenge written and sung by Australia's Pat Drummond.

It's one of my favourites - good for scaring visitors from OS, heh heh heh (laughing wickedly)

Somewhere in the Car (The Spider Song)

It came out of the dashboard, barely two foot from her face,
when the heating fan inside the vent began to oscillate.
She could not believe her eyes.
She thought the vent had come alive,
as the probing legs came blackly through the grate.

A spiky sheet of fear flew up her back.
She fought to force her fingers to relax;
but with one eye on the grate,
she stabbed blindly at the brake
and the battered Holden skidded off the track.

It squeezed past the plastic, fell forward with a 'plop';
she screamed and watched it run back through the car.
Like a herky-jerky doll, spring-loaded in a box,
she catapulted through the door onto the tar.

The night air hit her body like a blow.
It was very nearly four degrees below.
On the back road to Khancoban, from the lights of Jindabyne,
she'd been running with the coming of the snow.

Chorus: It's somewhere in the Car! Lord, it's somewhere in the car!
The cabin light's not working and the night is deathly dark.
You know there's matches somewhere, but you don't where they are;
and the mongrel thing is somewhere in the Car!

She'd driven down from Sydney, where it must have got on board.
he knew it was a Funnel Web; she'd seen the things before.
But they're rarely quite as large, or as ugly and as fast,
as the thing that she'd seen running on the floor.

Now she flipped the driver's rear door open wide;
but the moon was gone, she couldn't see inside.
Under the empty biscuit packets and discarded burger wrappers,
there was far too many places it could hide.

Chorus.

(Spoken) So she walked round in front of the Holden and looked at it, as it lay in the ditch like a wounded beast.
She knew no one else was coming up the road that night from Khancoban...
She wondered what the hell she was going to do.

Several feet of fallen tree had gone in through the grill
and the one remaining headlight glimmered dimly in the chill.
Then the first few flakes of white spun and danced along the light,
as the blizzard came in howling from the hills.

The horror of her situation dawned.
She knew she'd freeze unless she sheltered from the storm.
With every nightmare that she'd known,
she climbed back inside the Holden;
driven by the desperation to be warm.

Through the hours of the darkness she stared into the blackness.
Every muscle in her body quivering in wild alarm;
every time she thought she heard it as it skittered through the papers;
every time she thought she felt it on her arm.

The howling mountain blizzard locked it's fingers 'round their prison
and the storm clouds blotted out the stars.
"Hell, isn't hot at all", she thought, "it's colder than the grave!
And it runs on silent legs inside this car!"

Now the spider died at midnight, frozen by the alpine air,
but as it fell down from the roof... there was a scream of wild despair;
and next day they found her there, with a catatonic stare,
and the Funnel Web still tangled in her hair!

So they searched the woman's body for a bite.
Though there was none, she was dead and icy white.
The coroner said, "Probably, a stress-related coronary."
'cause he didn't want to say she'd died of fright!)

Chorus.

Now there's a scientist on the Sunday social page
who's just been married to a girl who's half his age;
while back in his laboratory at Sydney University...
there's a Funnel Web.... that's missing from it's cage.

eek, thats scarier than the earring story, Amos! she must be a very capable woman!

don't know if ive told any snake stories here before, but one afternoon i was sitting on my sister's back verandah, in an old cane chair, reading in the late afternoon. Their farmhouse was very isolated, surrounded by bush, and down the bottom of the back yard was a lovely river.

I'd been sitting quietly, for about an hour, reading, and having a cup of tea. I got that funny feeling you get when someone is watching you..

I looked up, and wound around the verandah post was a huge, long, diamond python. I froze, and did not move, absolutely paralysed with fear.

It was rubbing its head against the post, and i just sat there, not moving, watching it rubbing its head & chin against the post, as if it had an itch. after about ten minutes i could see what was happening, it was shedding its skin, slowly,as it rubbed, like taking a long glove off an arm. my sister Rosie came out with a cup of tea. "Don't move".. i said hoarsely.. "snake"...

Rosie looked across and laughed.. o, thats just Fred, she said, he's fine, he lives in the roof and keeps the rats and possums away.

(there's a picture of me and my sister rosie on my photo page, on the verandah of their previous property, Goannamanna, in the Blue Mountains)

Great tale, Freda.

I have a much admired sister-in-law who worked for many years in national parks, and one morning discovered a large rattler on her back porch. just as she was getting ready to go out. She somehow got it swooped up into a black plastic trashbag and threw it in to the freezer, and left for a business trip. When she returned, it had frozen to death, and she skinned it and made belt buckles out of the skin.

Funnel-web spiders are found in eastern Australia, including Tasmania, in coastal and highland forest regions - as far west as the Gulf Ranges area of South Australia. Gardeners and people digging in soil may encounter Funnel-webs in burrows at any time of the year. The Sydney Funnel-web Spider (Atrax robustus) occurs from Newcastle to Nowra and west to Lithgow.

Funnel-webs are large spiders (1.5 - 4.5 cm body length) with glossy dark brown to black carapace. The abdomen is usually dark plum to black and not patterned. The eyes of Funnel-webs are closely grouped. Male funnel-webs approach the females' hidden burrows, possibly by following the scent of their chemical attractants. During mating, the male must restrain the female from striking him with her fangs using the spurs on his second legs, while he transfers sperm via his palps into her genital opening.

The female then spins a pillow-shaped silk egg sac, into which she lays over 100 eggs. She cleans and turns the egg sac several times during incubation and will defend it vigorously if disturbed. The spiderlings hatch about three weeks later, and stay with the mother for a few months. After two moults, they leave her burrow, dispersing by foot to eventually make their own burrows. Juvenile males will stay in their burrows until their final adult moult, after which they will become wanderers. Funnel-webs mature in about two to four years, with the females living to ten or more years, and the males dying about six to nine months after maturity.

Toxicity
Bites are most prevalent during summer and autumn when males leave the burrows in search of females. Bites are dangerous and can cause serious illness or death. The venom appears to particularly affect primates (ie humans), whereas other mammals - such as cats and dogs - are relatively resistant.

The male Sydney Funnel-web Spider is more dangerous than the female. This is because the toxic venom component that attacks the human and primate nervous symptom so severely is only present in male spiders. Initial symptoms after a bite include local pain, mouth numbness, vomiting, abdominal pain, sweating and salivation, ultimately death, if antivenene is not administered.

I mention all this because Sydney is well populated with funnel web spiders, and also because weve got on to things to do with bugs in this thread. a friend found a funnel web spider on her verandah a few years ago. She put it in a plastic container in the freezer. When it was frozen, she dipped it in epoxy resin and made an earring from it.
