The weirdest form of brainwashing I have seen.

So at my job Friday the only other technician decided to bring some home made catfish stew to work. (he is the only other person I sorta trust there) It was good, but I found some bits in it. I examined them closely and it was bits of the pages of the bible. The pieces were not small, but big and contained whole verses, and I really didn't want to believe it, but there it is. He has always taken issue with me not believing. They are literally trying to feed me the bible down here in SC to get me to convert. I know their intentions are good, but come on, dammit. This is weird. How can a man so intelligent, that I look up to, be so foolish. Feed me the f-ing bible? Give me a break. I wish I could feed him some reason but he would probably choke to death on a fossil or a real book.

Here's what you do.  (And

Here's what you do.  (And do it quickly.) 

1) Very quietly, pack up everything of value that will fit in a suitcase.

2) Grab as much money as you have laying around.

3) Get into your car.

4) Pick a highway.

5) Drive.

Do not look back.  Do not go back for any other belongings.  Do not call anyone to tell them where you are.  Take any trustworthy loved ones with you, but put a bag over their head so they can't find their way back.

Really though...that is just strange.  Sounds like those crazy, backwoods females that put a little of their monthly menses in their man's food every month so's he'll never go astray.  People are just feaky.

I think Hamby's right:  run away!  run away!

I think Hamby's right, time to find new digs. That or learn to be paranoid, check everything.

"Anyone can repress a woman, but you need 'dictated' scriptures to feel you're really right in repressing her. In the same way, homophobes thrive everywhere. But you must feel you've got scripture on your side to come up with the tedious 'Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve' style arguments instead of just recognising that some people are different." - Douglas Murray

When anyone knowingly &

When anyone knowingly & surreptitiously serves another food, that contains items they know are not food, they have in a sense poisoned the consumer.  While most papers/inks are not poisonous, some of them do contain dioxins which can cause long term health effects.  And you have no way of knowing where that paper had been (or what sex-addict evangelist) might have handled it before it got dropped into your catfish stew. 

In places where people think beyond childhood fairy tales, the local law would probably consider this illegal.  I'd definitely re-consider that "sorta trust" thing about your co-worker... and i'm in agreement w/ everyone else.

It's downright creepy. 

Fill your tank & head out of town.

As soon as my lease is up

As soon as my lease is up I am out of here. I need to get a year in at this job so I can put that on my resume. I am thinking somewhere close to the ocean. There are women around here that will put their blood in your food. They usually put it in spaghetti. They think it makes you fall in love and never cheat. I even caught one of my exes with some voodoo dolls. She was from New Orleans. Weird stuff going on down here in the south.

I've heard of that thing with the blood in spaghetti. That's disgusting. Not to mention an extremely irrational belief.

Yeah... the deep south is a scary place.  New Orleans is especially strange.  I used to live very close to it.  Great place to visit.  Wouldn't want to live there.  (Also, I haven't been back since the hurricane.  I imagine it's still pretty bad.)

You gotta avoid the midwest, too.  Ohio has some crazy fundy-ness, as does Missouri, Kansas, and pretty much every square-ish state in the midwest.

Actually, I hear that Sweden is a nice place...  Lots of tall blondes.

Does it bother anyone else that "normal" xtian behavior in the south resembles a Stephen King Horror plotline ?

I wouldn't be hoping to hang on a little longer, I'd be filing a complaint with HR and calling a lawyer.  That's crazy on a level where I would fear for my well being.  If they're going to feed you the bible then who knows what they're doing to your car or your keyboard or whatever.  That is a special kind of creepy.

... usually?..   usually?!!  There's a usually for this behavior?  I knew that there was a tradition somewhere in the world (Spain, perhaps) where afterbirth is cooked into a meal.  I thought that was disgusting, but at least the eater knew it was there.  Seriously...  That;s..  that's unspeakable...

After the other stuff voodoo dolls seems downright tame.  At least it doesn't involve you ingesting unknown detritus.  Ugh...

From watching other animals, I would guess.... I mean, they would have figured out the stuff was edible from watching dogs etc....but not that it was highly nutritious, I guess.

     You don't need backwoods types for that menses shtick;   It is  a somewhat commen type of revenge  for   coolie girls in Guyana South America.    Borrowed from  West African slaves in the early 19th  century, it comes from a local version of voodoo called  Buccoo,  they would use it as a form of poison for revenge  not a love potion.  Most Guyanese would consider it freaky but it still happens.

     As for you Lazuli  eather sue the fruit cake and let him explain in court under oath why he thinks it would work or pack up and get out of town.

I'm going to second everyone who says leave and don't look back, suing the ass off any of the people there sounds like a visit to Redemption land. You'd be lucky to get out alive.

Think of the stories you

Think of the stories you have to tell now.  People pay lots of money to go to foreign countries and have trippiness ensue.  You just found a way to get the experience for free!    Just watch your back until your trip is over and you can come home.

Scared

 

 

  I have to agree with these answers.  Run like hell, these people are not sane.  This is scary shit.  I have to wonder is the HR office would help?  I want to think they would but only if you have an attorney with you.  Can you get anymore of that soup?  Maybe there is something in the water down south that would cause people to behave this way.
