Woman Tries to Sell Soul Online

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Grim Reapers, demons and power-hungry Disney villains sure do have it easy nowadays. Instead of going through poison apples, waiting around near future fatality sites or having to track a particularly important living individual who’s lineage might be of importance, all you have to do is plop down in front of an internet-attached device and ride over to ebay.

A woman, who’s going by Lori N. (or LHumanist on ebay), tried to sell her soul on the mega-auction site.

Lori placed her ‘slightly used’ soul on auction for $2,000. Ebay has removed the auction due to their restrictions about selling this type of thing on their site:

“We don’t allow humans, the human body, or any human body parts or products to be listed on eBay, with two exceptions. Sellers can list items containing human scalp hair, and skulls and skeletons intended for medical use.”

So what’s up with Lori that she’d want to sell her soul so badly for?

Five years ago Lori was a passenger in a car that was slammed into by a drunk driver. She suffered a heart attack, a stroke and was thrown into a coma for three weeks. When she woke up she found that she’d also been dealt a broken hip, pelvis, leg, collarbone, sternum, ribs, had a collapsed lung and she’s also lost a breast.

Lori was a freelance writer and now gets by on part-time work and making jewelry.

Emails have been coming in from everywhere. Some people are connecting with Lori and sharing similar stories. Some people are condemning her for selling her soul and claiming that she’ll burn in hell and live in fear and agony for eternity.

It’s hard for her to take those threats seriously and probably a little hard to believe you’re not getting jacked out of a soul to add to your collection in the basement..

Lori’s also an atheist.

Hell Gets a Theme Park!

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

Theme park.

Fun, right? You probably just flash-backed to some awesome memories of going to a theme park with friends and family and having a really good time. You might start humming ‘It’s a Small World’.

Well knock it off. There’s a theme park in this world that is meant to smack those happy memories out of your brain, remind you you’re a sinner and take you into the darkest corners of the world and THAT’S where we’re going…not some pastel-colored, Laughing Place.

We’re going to Wang Saen Suk Gardens where, instead of the smiling face of a familiar and friendly cartoon mouse, there’s the park entrance sign which simply reads:

“Welcome To Hell.”

Here comes the fun-suck, kids.

Wang Saen Suk Gardens in Bangkok, Thailand has a theme not really touched on much here in the states…the theme of Buddhism’s version of hell.

Amongst the statuary on display in the gardens are a plethora of sinners in various states of torture including a guy having his man-parts tugged on by ravenous dogs. Sounds like the perfect family outing, doesn’t it?

If you quietly and sarcastically said, “Not really”, then you’d be surprised to find that this themed destination, while not as smile-inducing as finding out you’re going to Walt Disney World, is quite popular amongst families who take their children there to scare them into complying with the culture’s moral code.

If any of you fine people go? We totally want a sippy cup and a fridge magnet.
