[Sca-cooks] I don't want to die

Probably just a cultural difference, Suey....Olwen was responding to a bit that I'd written, under the topic of freckles.  My post was a bit silly/adult naughty, and Olwen was responding in kind.  For all that we're a pleasure-loving country, there's a strong thread of puritanical moralism in American culture and history that tells us (who are interested in, uhm, most naughty things) that it will send us straight to hell.  A counter to this is jokes about having a better time in hell (with the implication that it'll be more fun and more interesting), and that one's friends will be there.  It's not meant seriously, generally.

      What?  As always I missed something here.
      My friends in Chile say my house is a confessional booth. Nine 
  ladies came the other night and four of them told us how their husbands 
  ruined their lives by leaving them. This is the second time this as 
  happened in the four years I live here. It was so horrible my neighbor 
  and another very good friend could not sleep the rest of the night when 
  they left at 3 am. for these stories.
      Yeah, they were telling us things like their husband did not respect 
  them. Horrible. Neighbor and I felt so lucky, we had lunch together 
  today to share our tears for our good friends and then our husbands came 
  home and we told them what happened. They could not understand why 
  anyone would want to die with them as such good friends, nor could
