    I learned it gets easier; but you gotta do it every day.

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.
    - A.A. Milne.

    Today I learned that Alice Roosevelt buried a voodoo doll of the next First Lady in the White House yard when her father's term was over.

    Geez, I wouldn't mess with this lady.

    We wear neckties (la cravate) because Louis XIII liked the look of Croatian mercenary uniforms which included a cloth around the neck. That bastard; I hate ties.

    The Finns pride themselves on their tolerance for hot saunas; they have a Sauna World Championship where the contestants compete to see who lasts the longest at the highest temperature. There are also more saunas than cars in Finland, approximately 2.5 million saunas or 1 for every 2 Finns.

    There are 219 folk-dancing clubs in Denmark; over a third of the Danes belong to a sporting club or association.

    Sweden has a Child Welfare Board that removes children from their homes to prevent them from receiving a privileged upbringing.

    "This is a country where the authorities can forcibly separate a child from its parents to prevent them from giving it a privileged upbringing." journalist, Brita Sundberg-Weitman (quoted from The Almost Nearly Perfect People)

    Swedish law currently requires sterilization of transgendered people.

    In 1947, the Swedish government forcibly sterilized 2,264 "inferior" women and juvenile delinquents.

    "The two regimes shared the same goal: the purification of a race of tall, blond, blue-eyed people." (The Almost Nearly Perfect People)

    The Education of Little Tree

    The Education of Little Tree is a memoir-style novel written by Asa Earl Carter under the pseudonym Forrest Carter.[1] First published in 1976 by Delacorte Press, it was initially promoted as an authentic autobiography recounting Forrest Carter's youth experiences with his Cherokee grandparents in the Appalachian mountains. However, the book was later shown to be a literary hoax perpetrated by Asa Earl Carter, a white political activist from Alabama heavily involved in white supremacist causes before he launched his career as a novelist.

    The book was a modest success at its publication, attracting readers with its message of environmentalism and simple living and its mystical Native American theme. It became a bigger popular success when the University of New Mexico Press reissued it in paperback, and saw another resurgence in interest in 1991, entering the New York Times Best Seller list and receiving the first ever American Booksellers Association Book of the Year (ABBY) award. It also became the subject of controversy the same year when historian Dan T. Carter definitively demonstrated that Forrest Carter was Asa Earl Carter,[2] spurring several additional investigations into his biography. These investigations revealed that Carter had no Cherokee grandparents and had been a Ku Klux Klan member and segregationist political figure in Alabama who wrote speeches for George Wallace.

    Carter was planning a sequel titled The Wanderings of Little Tree at the time of his death in 1979. A film adaptation was released in 1997. The book has been the subject of a number of scholarly articles, many focusing on the hoax and on the impact of the author's white supremacist background on the work.
