Black hole discovery

Post by moonshadow »

I have discovered two super massive black holes in our vicinity...

They each have names respectively...

Politics and

Religion

It seems that everything eventually gets sucked into one or the other, and nothing.... not even light (illumination) can escape its pull!

But here on the Skirtcafe.org we are able to debate in a calm, reasoned fashion unlike politicians and the "news" media.

If I was a praying kind of man, I pray for the Carl Sagan sort of black hole, and not the ones Moon mentioned; I think there may be something on the other side of a REAL black hole, but KNOW nothing survives the others. Yet they, too, are inescapable.
As a matter of fact, the sun DOES shine out of my ...

It is possible to engage in such discourse, but the unfortunate reality is such that the topics hit so close to home (usually economically, but sometimes almost religiously) that such matters go off the rails in short order, and when that happens, general civility -- and even sanity -- suffers horribly. Hence, they are technically banned by rule, and I admit sometimes violating that rule myself if something really manages to offend my sensibilities. At least I tend to compose very carefully when I am doing so.

Let's be honest with each other. How often have we tried this experiment unsuccessfully? How many times has it actually stayed on the rails? It's not an encouraging ratio.

Something about dem 'rails' - politicians that weren't agreeable were sometimes run out of town on 'rails' and tarred and feathered to boot !
Religion has it's exorcisms - always something with an 'X' (Christ on a cross ?) - darn we just won't let this man preach his peace !

Maybe when the world ends we will have been swallowed w-hole in a one of those Black holes - there maybe a heaven on the other side ?
"Kilt-On" -or- as the case may be "Skirt-On" !
WHY ?
Isn't wearing a kilt enough?
Well a skirt will do in a pinch!
Make mine short and don't you dare think of pinching there !
