Happy Winter Solstice

Postby Flash » Mon Dec 21, 2015 11:30 pm

It's the Winter Solstice. Let us celebrate, dance naked around a communal fire, drink, drink some more and maybe drop a mind blowing, reality changing, consciousness expanding little pill. I promise you that after that you will wonder whether your Christmas tree is really a Christmas tree at all. :wave:

Happy Winter Solstice to everybody.

depends on how hungry Fenrir is.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

The chores done, fire lit, evening meal consumed, last mosquito squashed, dog curled at my feet. Dried persimmon and cheese cut, with nuts set by for some sake. Mochitsuki scheduled.

May you and yours` health be robust, homes happy, bellies full... Please have a very happy New Years, one and all.
