2013 Theme - Cargo Cult - thoughts?

Cargo Cult - Who is John Frum? He is known to us by many names, this Visitor from Elsewhere, dispenser of endless abundance and wielder of mysterious technologies: John Frum, Quetzalcoatl, Osiris, "Bob." His cargo is splendid, his generosity boundless, his motives beyond our understanding. But across the ages and around the world, the stories all agree: one day he will return, bearing great gifts. Our theme this year asks three related questions; who is John Frum, where is he really from, and where, on spaceship Earth, are we all going?

I thought that it was the cat who was supposed to be spoiled...?

Agree. All we really need is for the aliens to come and give us all the entitlements we might wish for. Yeah, that's the ticket! Free medical care and 3D HDTV and school lunches and love mates provided. They will finally bring an end to that nasty self reliance, and that nefarious self control. We can have it all, because the aliens will give it to us.

All the aliens gave me was a rectal exam, and then wouldn't give me the results! Grrr.

There was a time in our past when benevolent giant beings cared for our every need. Magical.

Come back giant beings!!! I guess that would mean I'd have to be a baby forever.
