My "Refrigerator"

Gary,

Not sure if this qualifies for your refrigerator page, but I have gotten quite a lot of utility out of the unit. As you can see on the left, it is really a biosynthesis device, and quite effective, if a little slow. I usually get one woman per week under normal operating paramaters, and find that generally sufficient. Typical results -- Monica, in this case -- shown emerging below.

he most dreaded of all Cherokee witches is the Raven Mocker, who robs the dying of their life. A Raven Mocker can be of either sex, and there is no real way to know one. They usually look old and withered, because they have added so many lives to their own.

uring the night when someone is sick or dying, the Raven Mocker goes there to take the life. She flies through the air with her arms outstretched like wings. There will be a wild wind noise around her, and sparks trailing from behind. Every once in awhile she will dive, and make a sound similar to a raven's cry. All those who hear it are afraid, because they know that someone's life will soon end. When the Raven Mocker makes it to the dying person's house, she often finds others of her kind there. Unless there is an Indian Doctor watching out who knows how to drive them off, they will all go inside (they are invisible) and frighten and torment the sick person until they kill him. Sometimes, those who are attending the sick think the person is just fighting for their breath.

fter the witches take the life, they take out his heart and eat it, and by doing this, they add to their own lives as many days or years as they have taken from his. Nobody who is attending the sick can see them, and there is no scar where they have removed the heart. Upon further examination, they will find that there is no heart left in the body.

nly a medicine person with the right kind of medicine can recognize a Raven Mocker, and if that medicine person stays in the room with the sick person, the witches will be afraid to come in. When one of them has been recognized in her right shape, she must die within seven days. Often, when the friends of a traditional Cherokee know that there is no more hope, they will try to have one of these medicine people stay in the house and guard the body until it is buried. Witches will not steal the hearts after burial.

ther witches are usually jealous of Raven Mockers and are afraid to enter the same house with one. When a Raven Mocker finally dies, the other witches sometimes take revenge by digging up the body and abusing it.

The above is taken from Sky's Cherokee Website. He says "We will not be presenting any 'New Age' information on this website." Good. In the interests of affirmative action, I have changed the gender references. .

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
