Good afternoon Steemit,
With Bitcoin in freefall, I'm really lacking the inspiration required to talk markets like normal. We're all human beings and have to ride the ups and downs we all feel. Just have to make sure to stay level enough to make clear headed decisions.
To get the little St Patrick's Day badge, I need this #saint-patrick tagged blog to receive 10 upvotes, so please help me out here guys!
I should first up precursor this blog by saying that I'm an Australian of distant Irish heritage, who very much despises the fact that human beings still allow religion, including Christianity, to exists in 2018. Like come on guys, at least think critically and try to explain the seemingly unexplainable, rather than taking the lazy way out with the excuse of faith.
On that note, let's talk about leprechauns! A seamless segway, I know.
Happy St Patrick's Day!
What is a Leprechaun?
A leprechaun is a sort of mythical, fairy-tale type of creature, etched into Irish folklore. They are usually depicted as little bearded men who wear a green coat and hat. Cheeky, mischievous and drunk. Typical cliché, derogatory Irish.
Supposedly they are solitary creatures that spend their careers as shoemakers. Pigeonholed from the beginning like that, can you really blame them for getting on the Guinness every day?
I don't really get this part, but if they are captured by a human, then they will often grant 3 wishes in exchange for their freedom. This just sounds like a terrible deal for them, but hey, we're the religious ones after all!
Now as I'm sure you've seen as a citizen of this beautiful place that we call the internet, sex sells. I'd like to introduce you to the star of this blog, Miss sexy lady leprechaun.
But while the sexy lady leprechaun has become popular in modern society, female leprechauns aren't actually Irish at all. They're just another sexual modernisation of a classic fairy tale to sell a product.
There is in fact no record of female leprechauns in Irish lore and they even classically wore red, rather than green. Outrageous, I know!
So did I get my badge?! Thank you for your help and giving me an outlet to get away from markets if even just for an afternoon.
Best of probabilities to you.
