As appearing NOW in a moronic pocket article near you!



What could it be?

a cast bronze object had quite a bit of value...

The mystery continues!

Could it be that the romans invented the 12 sided die in order to play "Deserts and Daemons" ... ?

Naw .... I think it was a scroll weight....

The word pagan came from paganus , who mean peasant . Its was a way to significate than christianism was the religion of the elite and paganism the one of the savage worker class.

''Trickster shows us how we trick OURSELVES. Her rampant curiosity backfires, but, then, something NEW is discovered (though usually not what She expected)! This is where creativity comes from—experiment, do something different, maybe even something forbidden, and voila! A breakthrough occurs! Ha! Ha! We are released! The world is created anew! Do something backwards, break your own traditions, the barrier breaks; destroy the world as you know it, let the new in.''
Extract of the Dreamflesh article ''Path of The Sacred Clown''
