On 19 January this year CJ aka Scriptor Senex posted on the god DataTransfer . This proved to be his undoing as his computing world fell apart two days later and he posted Cannot (never mind 'Do Not') Resuscitate. The moral, he concluded, was that it was unwise to tempt the gods.
Well I've been much more circumspect. Most of my friends who believe in a god only believe in one whether they believe it to be one emanating from a Christian or Jewish or whatever belief. However I understand that Hindus believe in about 330 million gods or a similar number of aspects of a god or gods and the Greeks and Romans worshipped many hundreds of gods. (I've always been rather wary of the Chthonic deities if for no other reason than they are represented collectively by a word which is impossible to spell). It's all rather confusing.
Anyway I never mentioned a god in my post yesterday on the subject of midges. But I didn't have to. The Moirai or the Parcae or the Three Witches were obviously listening.
Tonight the midges are back.
