What you may be "'refferring' to is the image below."
your friends remark about barley soup- very astute-because the Mesopotamians did brew beer from this. thousand of years ago. then this idea ended up in Egypt. Where they had seven different brews. In Mesopotamia it was sucked up through a straw. There is this classic two some- clay figurines I saw this in Der Spiegel where they showed this guy shafting his girlfriend-wife-lover
from the rear as she was bending over and sucking beer with a straw from a bowl. rippa people.
Thanx for the encouragement. It's amazing when after 20yrs of not finding successful meds and hanging on by a thread and then coming to the realization that a supernatural being isn't watching, judging and threatening my "salvation" that i am now sooo much calmer and more pleasant to be around. It's awesome to come this far to even join this forum to finally find like-minded atheist friends. I heard so many times that "you are are your own worst enemy". To a point that might be true but in my case the belief in a god was. THANKS again!
