Friend of mine was asking for money for a mission trip to evangelize to the heathen country of Finland...

Issues::

1) They're already mostly some flavor of Christian.
2) This time of the year it's dark and they're drunk.

At least this is what my Finnish co-worker told me.

I can confirm both of these thanks to my friend who lives there. She doesn't drink but the booze scent is enough that she is drunk anyway.

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

Why not send your friend here?
It's less money than a trip to Finland, and it's been forever since I was last evangelized.

Finnish christianity is so dull, melancholic and self-loathing, that anything your friend could bring to it would be a positive change. I too want to dance in church. Tell them to watch out for Lalli tho.

Talking in tongues, handling snakes and smiting the demon of numerology all sounds like fun games, but you know where it ends up



Yeah, there are worse things than boring.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Agreed, but boring will hardly never trip on its own shoelaces, crash down, and burn in a spectacular fashion. As a millenial I'm not entertained by anything else.

I had thought that the HOLYTM was no longer going to flow on account of the drastic toning down of my manic episodes thanks to modern chemistry, but, I think some of it still leaks out.

This sucks, every goddamn time. I've lost more people than I have appendages that way. (Not necessarily populism alone, but the whole general deal of people buying into bullshit with their entire life savings.)
