This here is my second day of bashing my head against a Heisenbug whereby a program happily writes 18 pages to a serial EEPROM, but on the 19th page it gets drunk and takes the rest of the day off. It's definitely a Heisenbug, because connecting a protocol analyzer (but not an oscilloscope) makes everything work as it should.
This leads me to ponder alternative career options. Here's one:
New e-commerce concept: make sacrifices on line! Choose a meat from the Temple's approved list, and pay for it by any convenient means, plus a small monetary donation to the Temple. The High Priest then nips down to the butcher shop, buys the meat, takes it back to the Temple, sets it on the ceremonial hibachi to send its essence up to Offler on your behalf, then disposes of the worldly remnant in the approved manner.
...If someone sacrificed a whole pig, we might need a lot of priests, acolytes, and neighbors to aid with disposal of the remnant....
And you just know some wag will want to sacrifice a zeeba to Offler, so it's best to have access to a specialty butcher.
I didn't bother reading the contents. I assume they want me to send $20 for more information.
Kind of like the Dispos-A-Dime machine, scaled up 200 times!
I can't find anything on-line about the Dispos-A-Dime. 'Twas in a daily-paper comic strip, many years past. Frank & Ernest, maybe? The thing looked like a vending machine, and had a coin slot and a sign: Dispos-A-Dime Deposit 10¢
