Yes the Bible is ridiculous but....

this is the most bad ass story I ever read:

From biblegateway, Second Kings 2:23-24

23 From there Elisha went up to Bethel. As he was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. "Go on up, you baldhead!" they said. "Go on up, you baldhead!" 24 He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.



What caught my attention was the last sentence: "forty-two of the youths."

You mean to tell me there were MORE than 42 kids who took time out of their day and kept calling the guy baldy!? xD

You know, they didn't have the Internet and Satellite T.V. back then, so what was a youth supposed to do for fun back in the day?

Calling someone baldy is certainly high on the list of sins and deserving of being ripped apart by bears. Plus it makes for a wonderful, heartwarming children's story, suitable for bedtime reading - sweet dreams - jeebus loves you.

That'll teach those ingrates! And if they should curse their parents... death! That's just how the lord rolls.
