Dry Pain-Free Freak Dance

Upon this desiccating planet, will I employ religion to increase pain threshold. Why? So I may get my freak on.

What's in the box?

Pain!

To crush everyone's dreams, it's not fair.

Oh boo-fucking-hoo. I think life will go on if you don't get to freak dance at the prom.

Does this post make sense in your own head?

Would you consider posting a brief description of what you were trying to get across with this FPP?

Sorry, I missed the point. I was momentarily distracted 'cause I had my freak on.

I believe mcgraw was making a strange Dune-related post out of unrelated links (dry planet, pain testing, orgies, etc.)

I think the question is: will the desiccating planet ("god's wrath") save those with faith and destroy those who "freak dance"...because I know some freaky dance moves that are in honor of faith in god...and those people, my friends, will be the luckiest.

Not to mention the coolest.

I thought it was an FPP about Footloose!

I was told this post validates parking without purchase?

Maybe the freaky dancing causes moisture that can help to un-desiccate the planet?

Some volunteers will be shown religious symbols such as crucifixes and images of the Virgin Mary during the torture.
...to see if they can handle more pain than others.


Why not just pipe in an eardrum piercing sonic shriek into sunday mass?

Or electrocute the floor at a Pentecostal squirm fest?
(talk about getting a freak on!!)

The religion link was nominally interesting, but what is up with this post?

Welcome to Dadafilter: You're wrong! No, you're freak dancing spoon fish!

I think McGraw''s just making the point that there are more important things to think about than teaching otherwise upstanding youths that it's not OK to rub their no-no's together at the nice social event. Though the Dune referrence is possible and tempting.

But...how does the pain fit in then?

unreason, blue balls hurt.

I must have missed the freak dancing/orgies in Dune. I think there was a sex scene in book five, with a Duncan and some interstellar sex-witch - but I have almost obliterated that book from my memory using the secret mental techniques known only to an elite order of ninja hypnotherapists. God Emperor of Dune, though, now there's a book. Who doesn't love a giant worm on a trolley?

Is it even possible to derail this thread?

I don't believe so Sparx.

In the first book, the Fremen had drugged out orgies after the Water of Life ceremonies.

Thanks, unreason - it's amazing what you forget after *koff* years.

You are experimenting on us, aren't you mcgraw? If that is even your real name.

Oh, that's lovely.

So when do the dilated anuses (anusi?) make their appearance?
