You all know that if I comment on the news, these news are primarily of geopolitical nature, sometimes--culture. I know Johnny Cash was sued by the State of California for starting fires, but this! This is on a whole other level of being far out.
A California woman professing to be a shaman who was arrested and charged with igniting the wildfire that has thousands of homes under threat claimed the fire was started inadvertently while she was attempting to boil bear urine, authorities said. Alexandra Souverneva, 30, could be sentenced to up to nine years if convicted of starting the Fawn fire, according to officials. The blaze has destroyed roughly 41 homes and 90 small structures while endangering another 2,340, officials said.
OK, who the fuck boils bear urine? This is a complete violation of shamanistic tradition in which bear urine is always served slightly chilled to unlock a full bouquet. Boiling bear urine is like... is like boiling 1975 Chateau St. Michelle Sauvignion before drinking. Who does this? But then again, this woman (obviously with Slavic roots) looks a bit... strange I would say.
