Not because of the children shouting or the deafening saccharine melodies (I like happy hardcore after all). When we we're about to sing "Happy Birthday", an angry pastor showed up and told us to be silent and we should sing some specific lines of the song.

No explanation, no anything.

Later I found out it's because evangelicals here believe some of the lines in the song are supposed to summon the devil. Yes, you read it right, happy birthday in swathes of ultra-religious Brazil is supposed to be a satanic calling


Dude, someone I know from the US wasn't allowed to read Harry Potter as a kid because his evangelical family insisted he'd get "ideas" from it and grow up worshiping Satan or become a witch.

The guy is actually still an evangelical, but "rebelled" in junior college by buying the Harry Potter books and binge reading them.

I read Siddharta once. Are his other books better? Because by the time I finished the book all I could think of was "Wait, that's it?"

This is a 200-MPH category five hurricane about to hit Mexico.



And this is apparently a storm shelter in San Mateo, a city in the path of the strongest hurricane ever recorded

The Glass Bead Game, Steppenwolf, Narcissus and Goldmund, and Demian are all very good. I haven't read Hesse since I was around 17, though.

From Wiki:

"The revival in popularity of Hesse's works has been credited to their association with some of the popular themes of the 1960s counterculture (or hippie) movement. In particular, the quest-for-enlightenment theme of Siddhartha, Journey to the East, and Narcissus and Goldmund resonated with those espousing counter-cultural ideals."

I guess maybe that's why they never taught Hesse in school.

Thanks, it means a lot. That's the problem, at the moment I'm stuck in another country for at least another month. It's funny that being a pro-science person and rather against most forms of religion, I found myself calling a highly religious friend of mine and ask if he'd pray for her.

Last saw her a couple of months ago, she had lost over 44 pounds (20 kg) and had ascites (abdominal swelling), and although I had the medical knowledge to know what it was, I lied myself like a blithering fool.

She was operated on yesterday and found she has peritoneal carcinomatosis, which basically means game-over. They haven't found the point of origin which can be either the ovary or the stomach. Ovary means she has a slight chance, whereas stomach means she's done for and pretty quickly at that.

I guess 20 years of 1.5-2 packs of cigarettes/day and countless bottles of Jackie finally caught up to her.
