Yeah, I'm here. As seen from my fairly recent last post.
Just lurking 'round, waiting for somebody to drop by :)

So, Rikk's a goner, isn't he?

Depends. Over on the other forum, there's a theory that Rikk didn't sell his soul to Satan because Alisin was holding on to it at the time.


Personally, I think they're a little weird over there. But Rikk has to be planning something -- he's never made a bargain this full of loopholes before.

Yeah, I'd like to believe that, but he was totally resigned in giving himself up to save his friends. Although, it does seem a little vague. After all, it's Satan he was talking with, and you can't just take what he says at face value...

I'm still hoping Rumy can find some way of saving him (she seems to be the strongest of them, and most versatile in occult situations).

As I'm not subscribed, I missed a few updates so I don't know everything that happened since Rikk left, I didn't see what Alisin did. Perhaps she did manage to hold onto his soul. And I think the other Big Guy wouldn't just let a soul as pure as Rikk's fall into the Bad Guy's hands... ;)

"I am that I am" is a literal translation of the Hebrew "Yhwh". The common translation is "God".

So...

Popeye is God?

That would explain a lot of things actually....

The Popeye saying is a homage (or was it a rip off) of the biblical burning bush saying.

Moses, when he was cast out by the pharoh, cam across a talking bush which burned without being consumed. When Moses asked the bush "Who are you?" the bush replied "I am that I am.".

It's been a couple years since I last read that passage, but that's the jist of it.

Seeing as the bible was written a couple thousand years before Popeye poped his first can of spinich, I think it's safe to assume that Popeye is no more god than Mickey Mouse is Satan.

Don't get me started. He looks all cute and clean and friendly, but what is he? Disease carrying vermin! He's the devil I says!

Naw, Mickey isn't the devil, he was just created by him. Yes, collectively Disney is Satan's elbow. And corporate america is his knee-cap... OK I officially just took that joke too far.

Didja know that Walt Disney was a racist? Now you do.
