punishment-stone

The punishment for stoning to death is mentioned in the Quran a grand total of 0 times. The same is mentioned in the bible 13 times. But the way media talks about it, you would think it was the other way around.

The culprit: hot socks kicking up cinders.  

The punishment: A polished stone that goes unheeded at the foot of the stairs. 

At one time I would have applauded a parade in my honour, but now I only feel unworthy.  Everyone has so much to do that it wouldn’t seem right to take any time off in my name.  

Sitting in the sun is a courageous past time these days.  A couple of weeks ago there was a man outside my window lying down in what seemed to be an incredibly awkward manner.  From my perspective, it seemed like he had fallen asleep standing up and allowed his body to crumble into whatever shape it decided.  

He lay motionless in this position for about twenty minutes and I began to get worried.  What is the protocol for a dead person outside your window?  

Because I fear confrontation I decided to wait and see if anyone else would notice this man and the way in which his body was awkwardly contorted.  But I had overestimated the neighbourhood that I live in and everyone just kept walking right past him.  Occasionally, a person would stop and look at him but inevitably lose interest and carry on.  

I went into the kitchen to collect my thoughts.  One more look and then I would have to do something, or else deal with the guilt.  But when I got back he was gone.  And not just gone, but completely out of sight. 

 I went outside for a cigarette and by the time I was finished, I had forgotten about the whole thing.  

The connection between Stonehenge and the Druids came in a roundabout way due to medieval legend and literature. Geoffrey of Monmouth’s Historia Regum Britanniae, published 1136 and regarded as a reliable history source through the 16th century, tells of how the ancient King Aurelius ordered Merlin, magician of Arthurian legend, to arrange the stones for him. Another medieval legend says that “stone circles were thought to be dancers changed into stone as punishment for dancing on holy days” [2]. The magical nature of these stories is what led to the association between Stonehenge and the Druids, an association made not just by the public but by 17th and 18th century antiquarians like John Aubrey and William Stukeley, the latter of which publishing books that “firmly established Druidic ownership of [Stonehenge] in the popular imagination of British people” [2]. The Druidic theories gave Stonehenge a direct link to paganism in the public opinion. These theories continued to be the accepted ones throughout the 19th century as well, which means that Hardy and his audience would have likely held these beliefs about Stonehenge.

I’m watcing Extreme Russia on bbc three about homosexualty in Russia and I’m so mad at the views on people opposing LGBT communities. LIKE I AM ACTUALLY SO MAD THAT PEOPLE CAN BE SO CRUEL AND SAY THAT THEY DESERVE TO DIE IN THE EYES OF GOD THAT IT IS A SIN THAT DESERVES TO BE PUNISHED BY STONING WHICH IS SO COMPLETELY MEDIEVAL ITS 2015 NOT THE MIDDLE AGES. I’M FUMING AT HOW OBTUSE PEOPLE ARE FFS open your eyes

Decided to take a break from Tales of Legendia (at least for tonight, I’ll be back at it tomorrow afternoon) and put some time and effort into Tales of the Tempest.

After two hours of playtime, I have gained the fifth and final member to my party, Arria (another mage), discovered my dad was executed, Forest was captured, explored the sewers of Janna (tough my ass Arria, that’s only because your level 13 and I’m like 22), solved way too many annoying sliding block puzzles, saved Forest, found out my dad was alive after all, escaped prison, jumped off a bridge, fought my dad when he was forced to turn into a bear and kill me (it was here I learned that apparently Arria is much better for healing than Rubia), watched as he was turned to stone as punishment for not killing his son, and then turned into a wolf to destroy a bitch for killing my pops.

I am currently calling myself a beast and inhuman freak of nature for attacking the person WHO KILLED THE MAN WHO RAISED ME, and that it’s true what people say about Lemorians. Okay dude, I understand that your upset about your father and everything, but what I don’t understand is why the Church propaganda you were so angrily denying is now true just because you had to defend yourself when dad attacked and then understandably lashed out when the homicidal maniac that is Rommy killed him.

Apart from that, I am now off to find where Forest, Tilkus, and Rubia washed ashore so I can get the party back together again.
