Ghoul Alert – More drivers learn wet road = slippery road

By poptop 13 December 2008 47

I was there, my camera was there, we were waiting for the response guys to let us pass – the Devil make mischief for idle hands.

Observed behaviour for Erindale Drive, just near Monash, seems to be Firies first, Police about 3 minutes later, Ambos about 3 minutes after that. As this was about 1pm, I can only imagine the mayhem as the weather got worse and the traffic heavier.

We Canberrans suck at driving in the wet.

ABSOLUTELY UNTRUE.

Incidentally, please don’t make me defend wicca like this ever again. That was a part of my teenage years that I care not to recall.

An inverted pentagram (2 points up) is regarded as satanic because it is a standard part of the Sigil of Baphomet, the insignia for the Church of Satan.

Also, why do wiccans seem to have no concept that mixing up the pantheons of gods from multiple civilizations across time and space (and then adding a dollop of new age dolphin-hugging rainbow crystal sh1te) is just silly and shows a lack of historical knowledge.

Ms Thumper is right to a point – the Christian Church took over lots of stuff and either subverted it to their cause or made it “satanic”. Anyone who thinks Yule Logs, Easter Eggs, or the Devil has anything to do with Christianity needs to do more reading.

Gardner represents one branch of modern Wicca, but there are lots of others – generally less well publicised [except for Crowley of course], which is how the members prefer it.

Thumper 8:12 am 16 Dec 08

According to Ms Thumper, who knows much more about these things than I, an inverted pentagram is generally a satanic sign, but may not necessarily be so.

Besides Wicca is only a modern construct that was initiated by Gardner, who managed to successfully put forward the premise that wicca was in fact a survivor of a a pre christian witch cult.

Canberra drivers are rubbish. They drive hermetically-sealed space ships that stop and go at the push of a pedal… most Canberra cars have 2 pedals, in my observation. They are air-conditioned, plush, soundproofed spheres of alternative reality. And this works until the road surface becomes less reliable. ie slippery.

But they continue to rush about, and tailgate, because they can. It’s only when their only control mechanism – the brake – fails that they realise that there might be more to this driving caper than they’ve yet worked out. Actually, most don’t realise this, they decide that it’s someone else’s fault.

An inverted cross also happens to be the symbol of St Peter, as the chap was crucified upside-down.
