Lets spill some blood. Rationality is serious business, a matter of life and death. Blood, toil, tears and sweat. Our rituals should reflect on that fact. (And blood makes a ritual so much cooler)

Blood is overused, tears are pathetic, and sweat is gross. How about saliva?

P.S. (Yes, I realize that the Arminius's post was on a sarcastic side.)

It's been -OVER- ALMOST NINE MONTHS since -Light- Eliezer posted this; he's probably got a bunch of elite scientists working on it by now.

How he managed to do that is something I'd rather not think too hard about.

Edit: Ugh, this is no fun without strikethroughs.
