This is how I feel about Exodus. The last 6 chapters are brutally boring. It's a bunch of arts and crafts related in excruciating detail. Takeaway: God is a materialistic asshole who will kill you for wearing the wrong underwear. Also, a perfectionist control freak who had nothing better to do than micromanage a bunch of unhappy nomads, and make them haul around a ton of useless crap. You ever wonder why it took Israelites 40 years to make a few weeks' trip, it's cuz God had them making a ton of intricate shit for him, then offering complicated sacrifices twice or more per day. The arts n crafts alone must've taken a good 38 years, cuz God only let two people work on it.
I have no idea how I'll make the next Really Terrible Bible Stories end with a bang, not a deflating balloon noise. This is bloody ridiculous.
Ima go back to Mount St. Helens now. At least it had the courtesy to explode at the end. This, btw, is why I always have multiple irons in the fire. It's so that I don't give in to the temptation to stab my brain out with my pen.
