Also that crack about "oh no, not my firstborn puppy" most children have either millenial or younger parents. They know there are still small children out there right, how old do they think the parents of those children are?

In these people's minds, millennials are forever thirteen years old, sitting in their parents' minivan and yelling about Gogurt.

As written, by time of the eighth plague (locusts) even the Pharoah's servants were like "dude Egypt is dying maybe let them go already" and he was like "yeah but just the men, leave everyone else" then the locusts happen and he goes "wack" but (Exodus 10:20) God was like "nope I've still got a point to make" and "hardened" the pharoah's heart.

After that point, as written, the pharoah only keeps the Israelites from leaving because God is going "nope still not done loving Egypt until I've proved I can count to ten" and the Egyptians are presumably going "this seems a bit excessive."

Just before the death of the firstborn (which does explicitly include the firstborn son of the pharoah), God goes "hell yeah they'll be talking about Me for a while (Ex. 11:9)*

But yeah the comments of the general Egyptian populace are pretty much ignored until the death thing whereupon there's some vague wailing and gnashing of teeth that's mostly glossed over.


*they did not, oddly enough

/e forgot, also immediately after they get to leave God goes "also I'm claiming your firstborn males too, human and animal (Ex 13:2,12)" to the Israelites and nothing is said of their immediate reaction to this but presumably they would have gone "uh, great, cool" I guess? Can't imagine why they immediately built a different god to worship.

Not to mention it's pretty heartless either way? "Millennials are sensitive about the weirdest things! They're so soft that they can't go camping without perfect weather, and they'll wail if you slaughter their pets before their eyes! Haha, cry into your avocado toast!"

It seems like when it started this thread was a lot more aunts posting Minion memes and old mistaking Google's Facebook page for the search engine. Now it's probably 80% politics, which is a sign of the times because everything sucks right now, so that's a natural evolution.

I miss Firefighter Guy and Titanic Guy.

I think part of the problem is that youropenbook.com is dead, that used to rule for typing in random words or onion links and seeing what dumb poo poo would fall out.

I'm a millennial, my only child did not survive birth, and a decade later I'm not sensitive about it anymore but also haven't been able to rly have a meaningful romantic relationship so, completely rad to see that compared to a puppy litter with a less than 100% survival rate

Yeah, while saying nothing about comparing human children to dogs, Millennials are in their thirties. What generation do people think has young children right now?

Well, I've known gay cats, and I've known people who think all sex is evil even when animals do it so pets who do The Wicked Thing should be disposed of, so its pretty plausible to me.

OK the last one deserves explanation, back in the early 90's I bought High Weirdness by Mail and wrote off for a bunch of crazy pamphlets, and the Shrine to Virginity was one of the responders.



I suppose this is old school IoSM: classified ads, usenet newsgroups, 'zines, listservs, "I find your ideas compelling and would like to request more information" form letters, Donna Kossey's Kooks Museum, etc. Back when you had to go looking for dumb poo poo

edit: when I wrote it was being run by an old lady who sent me a very information-dense broadside that recommended burning your pets genitalia off. Looks like she died in the mid-1990s and her kids kept it going for a few more years.
