I'm watchin this eminem video on youtube (not my typical interest but Im clickity clicking down suggestions) and he crosses himself in a video.
So I get to thinking that on one hand, subordination to christian imagery is declining and is too polluted with historical bad karma to be done with integrity.
But on the other hand, I like seeing people do tribal identifying gestures that indicate a shared value system.
So I propose that we, the internet primal community, innovate some such gestures. Like when we pull meat out of the fridge and present it to be cut and prepared, or before we eat, or before and after different workouts, or a protective ward against dwarf wheat- all of that would be awesome and I would rep it all over town all the time.
"Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."
