Some understood, more were shocked, most laughed.
Six hours later, reactions were the same.

I'm confused. Is there something significant to the fact that reactions were the same six hours later? Could this have been expected? Unexpected?

Did you repeat the action six hours later? Did someone else? Or were the reactions the same after everyone had had six more hours to think about it?

Did you do something then six hours later retell the incident?

Were you trying to get a specific reaction? was it to see how people would react?

Was it spur of the moment? planned?

If planned, did it not go through correctly? Did you have to improvise?

Did you do it for attention?

Is it something that most people can do? Yes, with judicious use of the word "can." Most people won't actually do this.

You didn't look like you were speaking in tongues, did you? My friend Tina from school invited me to her church once, and people did that there, and it looked to me like they were having seizures, and I got really, really afraid because instead of being helped the pastor was acting like this was the most wonderful awesome thing ever, and all I could think of was if I had a seizure in Tina's church I'd never get to the hospital =(

Any references to Biblical passages (such as an action involving 30 pieces of silver or wearing a coat of many colors)?

Were you embarrassed because
-a situation was not what it seemed?
-you were...how can I put this...physically exposed somehow?
-you looked silly or stupid?

Any references to Biblical passages (such as an action involving 30 pieces of silver or wearing a coat of many colors)? No

Were you embarrassed because
-a situation was not what it seemed?
-you were...how can I put this...physically exposed somehow?
-you looked silly or stupid? This

The first something:

Second something:

Did you do either action with other people? Hmmm...others were present during Action #1, but I was the only one directly involved. I was alone for #2. Were you the only one embarrassed? Yes

Was your (or someone else's) Bible stuck in a tree? If so, was it stuck there before the beach ball? after?

Guess: You were playing with the beach ball and got it stuck in a tree. You threw your Bible to get it down, prompting the reactions in the puzzle statement. However, your Bible got stuck in the tree. For one reason or another, you left it there. Then you came back with Item 1 and used it to knock your Bible out of the tree. When a Bible came tumbling down from a tree, it prompted a new set of the old reactions. OTRT?

Was it a children's bible? A commentary? Something else that made it less, well, blasphemous and more humorous to throw it into a tree?

Did everyone know it was a Bible?

As a kid at Hebrew school I was taught to kiss my prayerbook whenever I closed it and also if I happened to drop it on the floor. Can't imagine how many germs I must have picked up that way... I would never have imagined throwing it though!

As a kid at Hebrew school I was taught to kiss my prayerbook whenever I closed it and also if I happened to drop it on the floor. Can't imagine how many germs I must have picked up that way... I would never have imagined throwing it though! I wouldn't have either, until the situation came up...I'll explain more in the $poyler

**********SPOILER**********

This happened over the summer, when I was in Myrtle Beach for 2 months. A couple of us were walking to the parking lot when we noticed that a kid had gotten his beach ball stuck in a tree. I decided to help, and took the heaviest thing I had (my Bible -- we were about to head to church) and tossed it at the ball. Naturally, I missed completely and got it stuck. Some people understood why I had thrown my Bible into the tree, but more thought it...hmmm...I suppose "blasphemous" is a little too harsh, but something like that; however, pretty much everyone laughed because, after all, it was funny.

Six hours later, I was finally able to get the Bible out by throwing a rock at it, prompting the set of reactions again.

Nice work everyone (Ciaobella, Jenburdoo, etc), and be wary when throwing objects into palm trees.
