  1. 2 things:

    1- There is no Dana only Zuul… lol

    2- I am left handed, does that mean I’m evil?

    Funny how left has always been associated with evil. Those evil socialists! :p

    Also, if i’m evil it also means I’m sexy, since evil is sexy lol

    • left hand being evil has origins in juadism i think but it could be because their a minority and minorities clearly need to be called evil 😦

  2. Some notes on Haitian Vodou (or Voodoo,)
    Loa are sort of like angels, demigods, or patron saints in the middle ages. they are given power by God to interact with humans, and can intercede in special circumstances.
    There are three major houses of Loa, Rada (creative), Petro (destructive), and Guede (death and sex) Most Loa have both a Rada and Petro form.
    The guardians of Death, Guede, are my personal favorites. As well as being spirits of sex and imbuing their vessels with the ability to drink any amount of alcohol and eat raw chili, they are the self appointed guardians of children, especially against black magic, which makes Papa Ghede possessing a child even more annoying.
    Concepts of good and evil are fairly fluid in Vodou. Magic isn’t always evil, just dangerous. That said, Damballah, the rainbow serpent is notable as being one of the few completely “Good” loa, one with no destructive (Petro) tendencies. The stuff about venom is bull.
    Vodou is one of the only religions that allows gays and lesbians to be priests.
    if you want to know what they got right, what they got wrong, or more interesting tidbits, just reply and ask.

    • I knew more about voodoo than I talked about i the review but clearly not as much as you do! Cool. I knew about them being lgbt friendly, though the way you put it ‘allowing them to be priests’ would cover christianity, islam and judaisism as well. you just need to find the gay friendly version. IVoodoos one of the religions Im more okay with.
