"Our message is not 'Don't do it.' Our message is 'If you do it, don't share equipment.'"

Also good advice for sex toys.

Irony. Like getting an infection from holy water.

Very common, by the way. "Holy" has nothing to do with "sterile" or "clean". Godliness is not next to cleanliness at all. There are tens of millions of filghy fakirs and saints to disprove that little maxim.

It's a retrovirus related to but distinct from HIV. So it makes sense that they have similar methods of transmission.

The father of modern statistics (and eugenics, but let's not talk abou that right now) did several studies, thought experiments to test the efficacy of prayer.

Reasoning that if prayer works, people who are prayed for a lot will live longer and be safe, he looked at three groups of much-prayed for people:

(1) the Royal Family
(2) clergymen
(3) missionaries travelling by sea to Africa and other foreign parts.

The Royal Family did not have any excedant life expectancy over aristocrats and other notables.
The clergymen did not live as long as lawyers, for whom most people don't pray.
The ships carrying missionaries were no less likely to sink than military vessels or ships without missions on board.

In fact, Mark Twain's Pilgrims, who got themselves busy praying for good winds, were mocked by their fellow passenger for the hubris and effrontery of thinking their prayers would be answered by a God unconcerned with the prayers of the many more ships going the opposite way.

They don't seem to have escaped sea sickness or any other natural evils because of their devotion on the way to a grand tour of Europe and the Holy Land. Mark Twain no doubt prefered taking a bunk when the seas were rough, or perhaps dosing himself with a patent medicine, or perhaps smoking to settle his digestion.

Who would of thunk having open wounds sprayed with other people's blood could spread disease?

Not to be a grammar nazi, but that should be auto-fellatio.

Fun fact: About one men or boys in 150 are capable of auto-fellatio. But it's hard on the back and should be avoided by the other 149 who are too fat, inflexible or under-endowed for such sports.

if i was to create a religion, it would be the "stick your head in this guillotine after you give me all your money, and trust me" religion, the new recruits would have to do the cleaning up, and then I could just start gold plating everything like the abrahamic religions do.

Neither the Islamic religion (nor Judaism iirc) have official hierarchies. Hard to create a good pyramid scheme.

Not saying there aren't independent grifters, because there are, in everything, but we don't have anything resembling the Catholic Church structure.

Nice stats... most impressive. I tried that method; poked my last eye out before I finished the move. Pr0n isn't the same when "viewing" it with my hand.
