The true spirit of Easter

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at April 16, 2006 1:59 PM

Warning: this post is profane and blasphemous. Well, more so than usual.

I rarely promote a religious message on this blog, but today I would like you all to consider the spirit of Easter. No, not Jesus and brightly colored candy; the true spirit of Easter: fucking. After all, it is commonly thought that the Christian Easter was an assimilation of pagan fertility rites, which undoubtedly entailed lots of wild pagan sex. Now, my exhaustive research based on one or two Wikipedia pages indicates that the fertility goddess Eostre was actually invented by some dudes well after the fact. But this just puts it at the same epistemological status as Jesus coming back from the dead, so I don't see any problem.

So let's bring Easter back to its apocryphal orgiastic origins, and put the erection back in resurrection. I'd like to encourage everyone to celebrate the day by grabbing a hot specimen of your preferred gender and screwing like (Easter) bunnies. You're single? No problem, this isn't goddamn Valentine's Day. Just go out and find a willing participant for some casual, no-strings-attached sacred springtime rituals. Lots of people will be hanging around churches today so you might start there.

Just don't take the "fertility" part too literally—if I end up on a plane with a screaming baby as a result of this post, I won't be pleased. Besides, you can annoy many sects of Christianity even more by using birth control.

And what will I be doing to celebrate the holiday, you so weren't going to ask? Well, actually... I'll probably be in the lab. But in the spirit of Easter, I'll be measuring a pair of coupled qubits. And you know qubit sex is pretty hot, when they can take on all possible positions simultaneously. Don't think of me as a physicist, think of me as a quantum porn photographer.

Best I can do isn't grabbing my preferred gender so much as my preferred organ. *cough*

You should see if there are any cute female grads around the lab today who are willing to share this new (old?) idea of Easter with you.

Or even cute female undergrads, postdocs, or staff members...

Ah, qubit porn... entanglement, simultaneous collapse of the wavefunction, no strings attached... Yep, sounds like fun!

I should point out spring is the season of birth not of fornication... so technically you are celebrating a few months late

Oh so tempting... I should tell my guy about this. I think he will get a big laugh out of it!
