The Myth of the Ruby Cape

Today at PEETs, a cathaholic announced that Francisco would not be wearing the Ruby-encrusted cape because he ordered that the rubies be sold off and the proceeds donated to Charity. I capitolized charity because the charity of choice IS the mother church. (And, the legal defense funds - pluralism within catholocism - thereof)

So, I went 'a lookin' and found no Ruby Cape. But, a good myth is never obfuscated by facts. And Rome has spun quite a few whoppers.

Then I thought of those "Ruby Shoes" from Oz (the other myth).

The reason that the "Silver Shoes" became Ruby Slippers was this. The Wizard of Oz was about promoting the new technology of COLOR movies (INVENTED in Germany) that was being commercialized in Hollywood. (See: The man in the frumpy hat.) Ticket prices jumped from 25¢ to 35¢ to commemorate the event (unless you were being escorted to a place in the oven).

And, if that "cape" looks a little small, it's bbecause it is NOT a cape. It is a kind of codpiece. Now one would naturally EXPECT the pope's jewels would be covered by by a bejeweled thingie like that. It might even have more DNA than Monica Lewinsky's dress!

Besides the red codpiece, the pope wore kinky red shoes. (Well, not ALWAYS red...)

Another dead pope's shoes:

From Silver, to red... (get it?)
But nevertheless dead.

Joe Ratzinger's shoes:

"Gay" red shoes:

Gay pride red shoes:

I think there may be some subliminal KINKY stuff going on here...
Papel fashon outlet:

Not papel fashons:

Pope ring:

Not a pope's ring (as far as I know...)

Both the Klan and the Roman church will tell you they are channeling god's truth.

And BOTH have equal credibility with me - that credibility being completely contained within the null set.

In times of old, thrice majestic (Trismegistus) Hermes was the go-between that connected mortals to immortals. Hermes was the good shepherd and inventor of sacrifices. There were MANY good shepherds in the days of lore.
Hermes, god's go-between, as the good shepherd:

Apollo, a Greek god of light, as a good shepherd:

Which brings me to the Triple Crown. O.K., a little levity and levitation...

I think the triple crown (or triple tiara - a tiara is a crown worn by a small girl) alludes to Hermes and NOT Babylon. The triple tiara alludes to a kinkier concept. Well, it IS the mother church...

While any republican (with six years of high school math) can tell you that 3 = 3 (even in the post-Bush economic Crash), the Babylonians were NOT depicting a triple tiara. Their crown was a triple FOLD for heaven, earth, and mankind. I will NOT take up the Mary-Ishtar debate. It is fogging, at best. Mary is "the sea" or the salt water that bursts forth just before the arrival of a newborn infant. (See also: Mare Nostrum)

And next year, for lent, give up catholicism. The only universal truth IS found in the null set, all of it.

And, in separation of church and state news, "U. OF WISC. AGREES TO FUND ROMAN CATHOLIC STUDENT GROUP."

A good BM

Does not improve BMI.

Body Mass Index (BMI) is a number calculated from a person's weight and height. BMI provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people and is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.

A BMI of 25 is NOT an indicator of good health or low body fat.

I am about 6'2" and 197 pounds. My BMI happens to be 25.7 and I am too fat! You could have an excess of body fat and a BMI of 25, an acceptable level of body fat and a BMI of 25, or a low level of body fat and a BMI of 25. A little body fat may help you survive for an extra week when our industrial civilization comes crashing down in the next 20 years.

There is increasing evidence suggesting that Bisphenol A (BPA), one of the highest volume chemicals produced worldwide, can interfere with the body's natural weight control mechanisms to promote obesity.

So, that diet soda in the plastic bottle is a double whammy! Not only is the aspartame-sweetened beverage horrible (sending signals to the brain that you are starving), the plastic may not be too good, either!

Buddha, BMI below 19.

Buddha, BMI 25.

Buddha, BMI above 30.

My intention is not to confuse you. You need a little body fat.

There is, however, a simple answer.

That answer is called stupidity!

Now go back to sleep.

Indonesia airplane "raptured" by god...

"raptured", (i.e. taken instantly to heaven)

You can't make this stuff up!

CNN anchor Don Lemon and Decoded host Brad Meltzer speculate that something “beyond our understanding” happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH 370, that “something” being God's intervention?

“Especially today, on a day when we deal with the supernatural,” Lemon said. “We go to church, the supernatural power of God…people are saying to me, why aren’t you talking about the possibility — and I’m just putting it out there — that something odd happened to this plane, something beyond our understanding?”

Desert News is Mormon...

Okay, you have my attention, conspiracy theory guy. Make your point, and make aliens involved.

Let's put our tinfoil hats on and take a look at all the possibilities

the ismization of inanity

first, a definition:

Now, an improved definition (adding granularity)

And, getting to the HEART of the matter - inanity:

Buddhism celebrates 'emptiness,' but not as a persistent vegetative state. Even though I might love carrots doesn't mean that I want to BE one.

Our friends on the right, however, sometimes display the behavior of a salient being trapped in a moebius loop of inanity.

Really! Who else - but the republicans - could take a basketball strategy and turn it into a full jowl dribble?

Projected Universe

A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection.

They have numerically confirmed, perhaps for the first time, something we were fairly sure had to be true, but was still a conjecture — namely that the thermodynamics of certain black holes can be reproduced from a lower-dimensional universe,” says Leonard Susskind, a theoretical physicist at Stanford University in California who was among the first theoreticians to explore the idea of holographic universes.

A long-winded explanation (for those who so desire the same) is to be found HERE.

And, there is no reason that the universe could not be a toroidal projection - with neither beginning nor end.

Check it out on a related topic HERE.
