Go to: My sister wanted a godless funeral. But still invited God

Notstrident's Avatar Jump to comment 26 by Notstrident

Please permit me this "Jewish humor." The meanest S.O.B. in a little Jewish village died. He was vile to everybody, and everybody hated him. The village was so small it didn't have its own rabbi, so they had to send for one from several villages away to conduct the funeral service, and this visiting rabbi didn't know the deceased at all. After the religious part of the service, he asked that anyone in the congregation who wished to deliver a eulogy would please do so. No one rose. The rabbi said, "Surely there is someone who could say some good things about Mr. Goldberg." Finally a voice came from the rear of the synagogue: "His brother was worse."

Go to: Mass Killings of Gazelles Marked Rise of Human Civilization

Notstrident's Avatar Jump to comment 4 by Notstrident

I have read that certain tribes of American Indians would do similar herding and mass slaughter of bison, just to "harvest" the tongues, which were apparently a delicacy, and leave the rest of the bodies to rot or be picked at by scavenger animals. So much for "noble savages" on any continent. Be it Africa or North America, in the present or the past, humans can be greedy and wasteful.
