Nine Measures of Weirdness

There's an old song from Roman-age Judea that's cited in both the Talmud and Robert Graves' classic novel of Goddess revisionist history, King Jesus, called “Ten Measures of Wisdom.”

It goes like this:

Ten measures of Wisdom

were given to the world:

Israel took nine,

the rest took one.


So it continues through the various nations of the world:


Ten measures of Lechery

were given to the world:

Arabia took nine,

the rest took one.


Ten measures of Sovereignty

were given to the world:

Rome took nine,

the rest took one.


Ah, fun with stereotypes. My personal favorite:


Ten measures of Magic

were given to the world:

Egypt took nine,

the rest took one.


Now, I don't know how long you've been around the pagan community. But let me ask you something.

Spatial Anomaly

On our way back from a trip to the Jeffers Petroglyphs in SW Minnesota, a friend and I passed a road sign: New Ulm 5.

New Ulm is a historically German town at the confluence of the Cottonwood and Minnesota Rivers, best known for its fine local beers and its "Herman the German" Memorial.

“I've always wanted to check out New Ulm,” said my friend.

“We'll have to go some time,” I replied.

A few miles later, we passed another road sign.

New Ulm 5.

“That's weird,” said one of us.
