‘Suspending a chicken over your bed could protect against Zika virus and malaria’

“The researchers believe mosquitoes are wary of chickens because the birds eat the insects, and their blood is not nutritious enough to be worth the taking the risk.”

Here’s the link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2016/07/21/suspending-a-chicken-over-your-bed-could-protect-against-zika-vi/

I can’t help but wonder what Voodoo practitioners would think of that article.

Oh my god, that's exactly what I was thinking. I saw the headline and thought "what kind of weird folk magic is this"

The difference, at least as far as a live animal is concerned, is that an animal can't legally consent.

But by that logic it should also be prohibited for an animal to have sex with another animal.

So, to you, humans are just animals, and nothing else.

That's pretty bleak.

I'm a cosmicist

The politics of paraphilias is a current interest. Often they r great places to find where definitions break down.

Hillary Clinton should not be given national security briefings in that she is a lose cannon with extraordinarily bad judgement & insticts.

lose cannon

insticts

More relevant than the spelling mistakes is the fact that that describes him much better than it describes Hillary, especially the loose cannon part. Plus the accusation doesn't even line up with the standard anti-Hillary rhetoric; isn't she supposed to be a coldly calculating white-collar criminal manipulator?

With this in mind, it makes me curious about other types of "sexual deviancy" which can be quickly criminalized. Anything considered "weird" (outside the standard state-sanctioned sexual conduct) could be used as leverage against people.

The difference, at least as far as a live animal is concerned, is that an animal can't legally consent.  I know the law in WA used to be against sex with a resisting animal.  I think that was changed after the fellow died of an overdose of horse dick.


You are right, animals cannot grant or withhold consent (I wrote briefly on the double standard of Zoophilia and Industrial meat in another thread, please check it out if you can).

But the general point I was making for this topic is that it is too easy to target a paraphilia and outlaw it - even if consent is involved. Doesn't Great Britain have a law which bans all types of necrophilic pornography, including fantasy necrophilia (like ridiculous films of people mating with sexy bodies covered in fake blood)?

That's why I like America. At least we still have a modicum of free speech, in contrast to many other places, even in the so-called "free world" (England and Austrailia come to mind)

While the stupidity of the neonazis is the most offensive piece of that paradigm, the largest part of it -  the actual driving force behind it - could be argued to stem more properly from the stupidity of the common man.

Laws like that disgust me. They're no better than the ones that were formerly used to harass and oppress homosexuals

King Arthur returns from the dead in accordance with legend, but is now completely unqualified to lead due to having missed the last millenium of political and technological progress (sort of like a combination of the constitutional peasant scene from Monty Python & The Holy Grail with the future shock/culture shock scenes of the first Austin Powers film

King Arthur, King Harold, Robert the Bruce, Finn MacCool, Emperor Nero, Bran the Blessed, Owain Glyndwr, King Olaf I, Vlad III, Sir Francis Drake, Emperor Norton, and JFK (i.e., many of the "king sleeping under the mountain" figures) revive simultaneously on the outset of the third world war, and get into a great drunken brawl in a dive bar.

The King(s) Under the Mountain(s) are awoken when mining and deforestation remove the ravens and eagles etc. circling the mountaintops

EDIT:
Another idea:
A story with a premise similar to The Purge, ie. there's an annual festival where all crime becomes legal. In this reimagining however, most people spend purge night at work. The corporations pay all their workers overtime and hazard pay to come in and spend the entire day destroying documents and other evidence proving criminal activity, as well as records that they are supposed to keep but cost money to maintain and store.

EDIT:
Another idea:
The problem - Invasion by alien monsters that sense fear
The solution - lots and lots of PCP

EDIT:
Another idea:
Cthulhu's return to active life after his long inprisonment at the hands of the Elder Gods is the subject of a comedy similar to the first season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Possibly the title starts with the word "Unspeakable".

I just rewatched Back to the Future and it gave me an odd idea: How about a movie deliberately constructed to evoke the feel of a point-and-click adventure type computer game. Like, a significant part of the movie would consist of the protagonist accumulating and combining random junk. Back to the Future almost does this, the first 1/3 or so of the movie consists of Marty acquiring random stuff that later (earlier?) comes in handy, but there's not much contrived combining of items, and the acquiring of them gradually peters out.

EDIT:
Another idea:
Skit about a skin care specialist named "Doctor Acula" (which of course would abbreviate to "Dr.Acula") who warns people to stay out of the sun

What do you guys think the odds are that a Trump presidency would cause the actual end of he world (as opposed to "merely" a police state and/or another pointless war and/or an America as bankrupt as everything else that Trump's ever ran)?

"Venitari dies leading to Morpork campaigning to leave Ankh. Head of Builders guild has convinced Morpork residents that a big wall is needed to stop Ankh citizens abusing their services. Plot thickens when it turn out Morpork has no services it's actually a huge scam to implement some kind of apartheid so Ankh citizens can have no waiting for anything. Backers financing the split are revealed to be Quirm and various historic entities enemies."

You should post that to the Original Story Ideas thread in the Literate Chaotic board

I'm not sure where the name comes from.

Indeed. Why doves? If I had to choose an organism, intestinal flora would be more apt. Absolutely disgusting, yet their absence will cause problems.
