(The Sun)   Four thousand-year-old statue starts turning around in a perfect circle inside its glass case -- prompting fears an ancient angry spirit could be fighting to get out. Well, yeah, that's one way to spin it   (thesun.co.uk) divider line 38

Having just been at a party where I helped hang all of the host's pictures upside down on the walls while he was outside entertaining, I'm guessing alcohol was a factor.

dammit, you can't colour your ignores. So I'm favouriting you instead with the same tag, so I can instantly see how to insult the crap out of you in any thread i find you in.

Mmmmm, sacrilicious,

I love it when folks go out of their way to show how not religious they are.  They are cool and I want to hang out with them.  So edgy.


I like it when folks ccok up a whole lot of bacon and sausage. I want to hang out with them. I will bring beer.

Arthur Jumbles: Interesting, it only seemed to move during the day when people were around and stopped at night. Then, near the end, it stopped moving at all. A smooth surface and the vibration of the visitors walking by the case?


Yeah, I noticed that too. Also, curiously less than a full circle. So, the shelf is not level, and the footsteps on the hard wood floor made the heavy side work its way around to the lower side of the shelf. There might be a small, off-center bit of traction on the bottom of the statue preventing more lateral motion.

...but let's go with angry spirits. That's way cooler.

Truther: Pretty sure that humans are responsible for all the evil you mention.


Of course they are... They're also responsible for inventing Santa Claus all the gods they believe in...

And let's not forget that humans don't need to believe in God to be evil. Mao, Stalin, etc.

True... I never said they did... I was just discussing the relative merits of believing in Santa Claus vs. a god...

You also conveniently forgot about the tremendous good done by many religious organizations for the poor, etc.

Some of them do, sometimes... Some of them also hoard vast amounts of wealth and live oppulant lifestyles, while bilking poor people out of their money... Like most any other group, there are some good people and some assholes... I never meant to suggest otherwise... Just that religion and deities tend to give those so inclined a good excuse to act like assholes without getting called out on it...

But hey - if it helps you get through life painting HUGE sections of the populous with broad brushes, who am I to judge?

Where exactly did I do this? I think you're reading far more into what I wrote than is actually there... I was (only semi-seriously, mind you) discussing the relative merits of believing in Santa Claus vs. a god... Nothing I wrote painted any huge sections of the populace with broad brushes... I talked about specific actions that some individuals have done directly due to their belief in a god of some sort, and noted no one does those things because of a belief in Santa... If you read to the bottom, you'd see I also specifically praised Jesus, and wished more people would believe in him, and actually follow his teachings... So, if you're trying to paint me as anti-Christian, you're a bit off base... Anti-pretend-Christian, perhaps... But, mainly just anti-asshole...

Mock26: Would you make fun of a non-mentally challenged adult who still believed in the tooth fairy, the easter bunny, and santa clause?  Of course you wood.  So why not make fun of people who believe in god?  It is just as ridiculous.


you're barking up the wrong tree. Let the comment take root before you go out on a limb next time.

About 25 years ago my mother moved into a new office building a few doors down from a large Confederate cemetary. I gave her a ceramic mask I bought somewhere to decorate her new office. It used to be a law office so there were many empty shelves to fill. Every evening when she left, the mask was sitting on its shelf propped up against the back, but when she arrived the next morning the mask would be face up on the floor in the exact center of the room, several feet away. This continued for a few weeks. She would return the mask to its place on the shelf only to have it migrate during the night. She had a solo private practice, no employees back then, and an alarmed and monitored building. So she put a nail in the back wall of the shelf and caught a ribbon from the back of the mask on it. Problem solved, no more jumping off the shelf at night.

Bemused staff installed a camera to take a picture of the 1800BC statue every minute for a week - the spooky time-lapsed film shows it turning through 360 degrees.

I'm guessing it doesn't do the spinning thing when you point a regular video camera at it.

/You know, because you don't have 55seconds to walk over and turn it with your hand.
