In order to make my tab at the Sacred Sales Shack
an even $50, I
purchased Pamphlet #1. It had been years since I had read this (I was
working as a security guard at the time) and I thought that since I have had
years upon years of being exposed to the greater Mysteries, I would be
better able to understand the verbiage contained in said pamphlet.
I Was Wrong.
If anything, my lack of ignorance made the pamphlet
incomprehensible! It was then that I came to the horrible realization that
perhaps this is the type of communication we have been sending the X-ists.
If so, we are doomed.
I remarked out loud, to myself: "Damn! This
is more confusing that VCR
Perhaps the X-ists timers have been stuck on the
blinking 12:00 all this
time! Perhaps they have only read as far as the Antaren and Epsilonian
translations and haven't gotten around to the Earth Translation. Or worse
yet, what if they collectively said: "Screw't" and proceeded to wander off
to have lunch at the nearest Xist equivalent of Steak & Shake, leaving us in
our over-written, verbose, Purgatory?
For the love of Dobbs, lets make it easy for these
guys, from now on, all
official Church communication must be in pictogram form, or failing that,

I've said this a number of times already and I'll say
We didn't generate enough Hatred for the Xists to locate us. This,
I believe, is what's happened on each of the previous X-Days.
Granted, there's plenty of hatred in this world, and granted,
being awakened and then dragged out of your warm sleeping bag
at 6:30 am on X-Day sure isn't going to generate much brotherly love,
but there still wasn't enough Hatred for the Xists to home in on.
And no one can say that I didn't try to do my part.
all those vague accusations and sweeping generalizations about SUVs
and sushi, while naming no one in particular. But noooo... Everyone was
so psyched up about going to Brushwood! Everyone wanted to go CAMPING
and rub ELBOWS with the Hierarchy, and maybe win some dinky prize!
No one could be BOTHERED with working up a GOOD LATHER! And NOW lookit
what you got for your trouble; ANOTHER YEAR on this FESTERING POISONOUS
DIRT CLOD! Another YEAR 'til the Xist ships make the loop around
the Milky Way and within sensor range of us again!
Well I hope you're all HAPPY.
