Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

Guts of Steel

Had a lot of fun yesterday doing a teen program at the library: Fear Factor Food Challenge. Only 5 of the 11 registrants had the courage to show up, but those who did had an excellent time. The menu:
  • Kimchee

  • Dried squid on a stick

  • Hot (spicy) head cheese

  • Octopus tossed in oil and vinegar

  • Jalapeno jelly (w/Triscuits)

  • Beef tripe (boiled)

  • Pork cracklins (w/hot sauce)

  • Chicken gizzards (fried)

  • Frog legs (fried)

  • Chicken feet (boiled)

  • Corn lollipops (spicy)
Two of the five participants ate full servings of all eleven items. The other three downed most of the menu. We only had one regurgitation (from the tripe; on the table in front of her and not in a trash can, unfortunately), and she immediately asked for another serving so she could try again.

The pledge they made at the start:

I swear that I have entered this challenge willingly.
I will not whine or cry.
I can drop out at any time.

If I fail to eat something, I will admit it.
I will not hide it in my shirt, pants, or shoe.
I will not give it away and pretend I ate it.
I will not throw it in the trash and pretend I ate it.

And if I feel the urge to throw up,
I will make it to a trash can
Or I will clean it up myself.
