Jonestown Mass Suicide
    #2899778 - 07/17/04 02:53 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Remember that it is impolitic to question another's beliefs as "all are valid" and a belief in a Supreme Being "can never be harmful" and "is a good thing"; and more importantly "skeptics are assholes".

No, but I remember them shooting the people that refused to drink the special cool-aid. There was a great documentary about the jonestown saga maybe five years ago. They interviewed one of Jones sons that managed to live through the mass suicide... they actually took him back to Jonestown, which is an overgrown field now. They actually found the tub that held the almond flavored cool-aid.

What's up with Kool-Aid? Kool-Aid and LSD ("The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test") and Kool-Aid and cyanide - guess it just mixes well. Any particular flavor that you recommend?

With LSD I prefer orange flavor. With cyanide only the blue raspberry really works.

Nothing covers up cyanide like cherry blast.

LSD doesn't taste like anything though, so I don't see the point there.

Some people are unable to smell cyanide at all, due to a genetic trait. Wonder what this means in the scheme of things?

Jellric probably prefers Jell-O to Kool-Aid...

People who can't smell cyanide must have found some other reason to reproduce, I guess. All inherited traits have something to do with reproduction, don't they?

Cover it up?? I prefer to bring the flavor out and highlight it's robustness.

That rules me out. I'm allergic to almonds.

What happened to the "all beliefs are equally valid" crowd? No response? Don't make me do a search to expose who you are!  :mad:

Ah yes, the believers shooting the non-believers... 100% conversion rate!
