It never ceases to
ONE of the current bushfires in Victoria has burnt out an area roughly the size of the American state of DC.
And yup, we still "celebrate" ancient European traditions. (finding three local wise men and a virgin is bloody near impossible these days.) We still have to "import" them, and display tableaus representing "Middle-Eastern" values. High value is placed on "Virgins" over that way, apparently, but Parthenogenesis (procreation sans male input) creates a female clone.
Technically, any "Messiahs" produced by parthenogenesis should be female. However, parliament has just voted to allow "therapeutic cloning" so now, with a bit of luck and assiduous science-based research .. some more people will be "saved".
