AH, see, we're coming to a point a where we can describe the size of FK's and blucas' trust funds without resorting to unseemly, plain figures.  We certainly could not cover a European coke-binge for a large Catholic family like Iggy's, but, provided we planned it a few months out, we could likely subsidize the same for a modest group of Afrikaaners

I am imagining a "ladies' trip" group-rate coachbus tour where blucas has cocaine.

Afrikaaners
And you were doing so well for so long.

Also, my dad is one of 9 siblings, and I have dozens of cousins. Poor people live much the same everywhere in the world, in some important respects.

I just remembered that I went on a coachbus tour of Italy with 3 of the 4 unmarried cousins mentioned above in 11th grade. There are pictures on facebook. There was no coke, or else they were holding out on me.

I feel like I'm stepping in dirty water here. I want to make it clear that neither I nor my "female relatives" would care much at all for this idea! It is dirty and weird!

What's the point of being a protestant if you're not going to wear condoms and get divorced? It just seems hella boring otherwise. I mean have you heard their 'hymns'?

oh huh, so it's the first day of classes and I just realized my Thursday-only class doesn't meet next week because of one of those obnoxious calendar-adjustment things where Th. runs as Monday, then the next week I'm at a conference in San Francisco. that makes for a kind of crap beginning, and while part of me--the part most in evidence here, probably--wants to shrug it off as less work for me, the fact is, I'll probably set up some sort of individual meetings or something ... which will require some thought on short time, which I guess is what I'm doing in posting this, since it's distinctly less interesting than blucas' coke parties.

I do love it when Catholics attribute things that are pretty much universal to poor people of European heritage to their Catholicism.  We have big families!  Our basic social morality is founded on guilt!  We like to eat simple peasant food derived from the region from which we hail! 

Various protestant denominations have updated their hymnals.  The older traditional protestant hymns are great.  Some of them have really great melodies, I don't know what Chet's had jammed in his papist earhole.  The others are still good because they sound to me like songs written for cold-eyed murderers to sing.

Like all of the examples you mention, though, this trait is not exclusive to Catholicists either. I've definitely heard them all from Calvinists, for instance.

Calvinists are weirder than Catholics, for sure. I'm willing to buy centuries of slowly-mutating all-encompassing cultural tradition resulting in pretty much any kind of fucked up, situation, psychologically, theologically, or aesthetically. Calvinism has no culture. It's all belief.

Yeah it's definitely a universal tendency.  I'd guess it's just more noticeable with Catholics in America.  But even then: Mormons too!

My Eng 112 teacher is ridiculous.

I've had about 15-20 pages of reading and 7-10 pages of writing after every class, which meets three times a week. Like.. I know. It's college. But this is COMMUNITY COLLEGE, ENG 112! And we don't even fucking discuss anything that we write about. It just gets shoved a folder that will get checked "sometime in the future".

Blah. I'm not a 19 year old living at home and working 15 hours a week at Starbucks! Fucking hell.

Today is the kind of day that makes me go "Fuck graduate school; you people are all willfully self-deluded idiots and I'm ashamed to count myself among your number"

But then it's been a really, really shitty day.

No, it was very much intended to be blunt, because it was a trite and stupid thing to say. Calvinism is a centuries-old tradition with of millions of adherents, with a deep influence on the way of life of whole societies, especially in northern Europe. What you said is false, and you could have had no reason for thinking it was true, nor any prompt to say it.
