FUN FACT: in hebrew, “feet” is a euphemism for genitals.
so if you ever see “washing feet” in the bible, it, uh. yeah.
(source is my old bible class textbook which i don’t have on me anymore :( )
HOLY SHIT WHAT
I MEAN CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG BUT I SWEAR TO GOD I REMEMBER READING A STORY IN THE BIBLE WHERE JESUS CLEANED THE ‘FEET’ OF A LADY PROSTITUTE INFRONT OF HIS TWELVE DISCIPLES WHO GOT SERIOUSLY GROSSED OUT. THEM GETTING REALLY SUPER GROSSED OUT BY THAT NEVER MADE SENSE TO ME UNTIL NOW.
Sharing for interesting biblical factoid and for tag. Also, I should add:
John 13:5 - “After that, [Jesus] poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.”
Actually, all of that chapter is really, really interesting in that context. I always assumed washing of feet was something the servants would do for masters in that day, and that the issue was the idea of the master washing the servants’ feet. Perhaps sometimes it is meant literally and sometimes metaphorically?
In a world where it feels like we’re all brainwashed by corporate marketing campaigns, it’s nice to see them fall flat on their faces now and then.
Whenever you have an idea that you think is great, but then it just goes horribly wrong, remember these stories. Even the best baseball players strike out sometimes. These weren’t just strike-outs; this was more like the batter releasing the bat mid-swing and hitting the pitcher.
A new type of human stem cell, never seen in nature, should be better at making replacement organs than existing stem cells
HOLY SHIT!!!! This is HUGE news. If you don’t understand why this is probably one of the biggest medical finds in decades, you need to go and research what stem cells are capable of doing. Life extension technology within the decade? Creation of ‘natural’, perfectly functional young organs with no threat of rejection to replace damaged organs? Yes, please!
well, didn’t see that ending coming… Fantastic comic.
For as long as he can remember, people have told Dappil to go to hell. He always wondered why; what was so good about hell that everyone suggested he visit? So one day he finally decided to go there and find out…
