Remantling Magic for the 999th Time


If you dismantle something and then rebuild it, are you actually remantling it? Can you in fact mantle anything in the first place?

I was listening to an interview on Radio 4 yesterday morning concerning the recent case of a child being killed due to his carers’ belief he was practising witchcraft – the so-called witchcraft trial. 

A bishop was asked whether he believed witchcraft existed. Said bishop was desperate to avoid being asked whether it existed as a practise that works, as he would then be open to defending his brand of magic against that of witchcraft; admit to one working and you must logically admit to the other doing so too. Of course, neither works. 

Tomorrow is my 1,000th post. I've actually posted a lot more, but I had to remove several hundred posts due to the ex insisting any pictures of the kids being deleted. Not sure why, but what the hell.

    1. Hi there JCN - I am impressed that you noticed this, given that you clearly can't read!

      "The random, but sometimes surprisingly connected (but not necessarily lucid), stream-of-consciousness thoughts of an optimistic, heavy drinking, cantankerous, iconoclastic, foul-mouthed, devil worshipping misogynist"

      It's all part of the Chairman's subtle and elusive charm.

  3. He has us all fooled! He's a charmer supreme - How else could such a misogynist badger have snared the lovely lady he lives with?!

    Unless...

    Witchcraft?!
