Stumbled across a reference to the deutero-Pauline letters. I know the Pauline letters--they're the letters from Paul, right? Turns out that the deutero-Pauline are the letters to the Colossians, Thessalonians and Ephesians, and these are generally believed not to have been written by Paul, but by one or more imitators.

Well this was pretty pleasing to learn. But what does "deutero" mean? Ah, here's the good part. It's Greek for "second". These are the "second letters from Paul". And of course, the Deuteronomy is the second set of Mosaic laws. ("Nomos" is law.)

I suspect most won't care, but this is the most fun new word/phrase I've learned in a long time.

I am happy.

Don't forget deuterium -- an isotope of hydrogen with an atomic weight of ~2. It's nucleus -- called a deuteron -- is one proton and one neutron.

"Experts Prattle Like Priests of Deuteronomy,
Teaching Us of Crisis in the Global Economy,
With Bureaucratese They Cover Many Pages
Of Pompous Nonsense, These Globalist Sages,
Their Slogan is Fascist "We're All in it Together"
Meaning Their Tangle of Debts, We are the Debtor,
All This Hype and Charade, So We Understand,
We're All Global Now, IMF Rules All Land,
"A New Way of Thinking for a New World Order",
Where Any Nation's Bad Cheques Crosses Your Border,
"A Kinder Order where World Bank is Your Friend",
Same Old Con, Compound Interest on a Lend,
This Globalist Beast has Mask, Quite Pleasant,
Lord of the World and You are the Peasant"

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

How about a book review for "Waiting for the Miracle.....The Symbiosis of Exoteric and Esoteric Societies and Their Unfaltering Goals Down through the Ages"?
"Torture doesn't work" lol
Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.

Don't worry, when I reach the mountain tops I will keep descending down to your level.

Oh boy. Here we go.

When our kids were young, their teachers encouraged the students to agree on a code word with their parents, to avoid the possibility that a stranger could pick up a child from school: if they didn't know the child's code word, they weren't going to get custody.

Our word was widdershins.

(For those unfamiliar with its meaning: it's the opposite of deasil.)
