Re: Yes ...

Yeah, but most of the dismissive ones don't run experiments that I usually see from drunken frat rats. This professor was known for taking a sabbatical every so often to go research folklore until he scared himself and went running home. Gee, that would've been nice to know before I signed up for the useful-sounding folklore class.

Re: Yes ...

It would be interesting to know how many of these so-called "folklorists" experienced unusual runs of very bad luck or even died young as a result of their meddling.

Re: Yes ...

The ones who pull that shit in New Orleans or Haiti get mounted, ridden up a tree, and left there. It has been recorded and published.

Re: Yes ...

Some people are too stubborn to learn any other way than the "Missouri Mule" method of education.
A small minority of such people actually go on to graduate from the Missouri Mule college of hard knocks but there are a sizable number who require frequent refresher courses and remedial work before that happens.
