Never saw an FUO. But the other day, I was laying back in a dentist's chair, with sun glasses on, under a very bright light. My lady dentist, and her assistant were doing strange things to my teeth; and she asked if I was okay. I told her I felt like I had been abducted by aliens, and was being examined aboard their space ship. They got a big laugh out of that. Did they do anything 'kinky' to me? Nope. But maybe next time!

An anthropologist was watching a New Guinea witch doctor treating his patients. The patient would lay down on a straw mat. And the witch doctor would dance around the patient, shaking skull rattles, and chanting incantations to drive away evil spirits. After one such session, the anthropologist asked the witch doctor if he really thought his treatments did any good. The witch doctor told him no, but that what was important, was whether the patient BELIEVED it had done him some good. (True story).

davknight comments on Jan 14, 2020:
Glorification of the police and military goes back to the post-Vietnam War period, when the Pentagon decided something had to be done to improve the military's image in the public mind. So, they began offering grants to film producers, who were making films that glorified the US military. Likewise, the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration began encouraging TV producers to create more television shows, glorifying the police.

In the '70s, if you wanted to live in a Yurt, or Teepee, or Geodesic dome, on the city's outskirts, you could. If you wanted to go skinny-dipping at 'Hippy Hollow', you could. Nowadays, I think there are laws against that stuff.

“I’m not perfect, I’m just forgiven” is the most enabling statement ever made! Christians...
davknight comments on Jan 2, 2020:
That's how they get people to go to church in the Bible Belt, where the biggest sinners in town will attend church, three times a week, convinced by preachers that they can be as sinful as they like, if they attend church regularly. Which is why you'll see the biggest sinners in town (to include wife-beaters, dog-beaters, child-beaters, drunks, and crackheads in the congregation). I have even seen bumper stickers, in Georgia, and Alabama, reading--"Christians aren't perfect--Just forgiven". They have been led to believe they will still get front-row seats in Heaven, provided they attend church.

If his reckoning is correct, then there is an undiscovered Indian town near the highway that runs along Lake Michigan, adjacent to present-day Wilderness State Park. As a boy, I once found some arrowheads in that area.

An even bigger mass murder took place in Elaine, Arkansas, in the summer of 1919, when several thousand Federal troops, cops, vigilantes, and actual KKK attacked, and wiped out a community of Black sharecroppers, because White landowners were afraid they were becoming 'bolshevised' by the organizing efforts of a sharecropper's union. The death toll was 150 (low side) to 900. There are doubtlessly mass graves yet to be uncovered, in that area. (Read "Red Summer", by Cameron McWhirter). The Army brought along a dozen water-cooled machineguns, to make the slaughter less 'tiresome'.
