Also I will happily invite anybody in the Seattle area to a Burns Night Dinner, it is fantastic.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq. - 2016-12-31 An analog synth thingie I attended used the masonic hall in Dublin as the venue. The building was half the attraction. Was filled with all kinds of weird stuff. I gathered that mason really really really like symbols.
Old_Zircon - 2017-01-01 I found out last year that the place I work was founded primarily by freemasons.
cognitivedissonance - 2017-01-01 I joined the Freemasons on a whim, and I was honestly quite shocked that they accepted me. I've met more weirdos, eccentrics and genuine oddballs in no other place then HERE. They're wonderful.
chumbucket - 2017-01-02 My father and his father were both past masters. I avoided the whole club altogether. But I did get into reading John J Robinson's Born In Blood which took one of the first historically researched claims of links to the Order Of Solomon (Templars) and theory on becoming a secret society because Rome wanted them all burned to a crisp It didn't have the typically bad theorizing of the other tin hat research. Robinson's books got me hooked on Templar history. But it never convinced me to be a Freemason.
cognitivedissonance - 2017-01-02 The rule I've found to be true: Freemasons get off on being spooky. I admit to that even in myself. BUT: anything prior to 1717 is bullshit, in my opinion.
