Re: Weird Scientists

Addendum addendum addendum: I think spirits would be the toughest for a ws to wrap their head around. Yes, but my understanding is that WS are fooling themselves as much as anybody.

Cusa had been out in the dance circle for the traditional dances, but now the younger tribe members were doing American dances and it was time for him to sit.
