CHICKEN! >w< I wanna HUG that chicken.
Walking around with a chicken ? That’s disgusting. And in a CITY, nonetheless ?
You can keep chickens in many cities. In New York, there’s no upper limit on how many you can have.
Why disgusting? All animals are covered in an invisible spray of micro-organisims, not including the ones thriving in every warm and humid nook and cranny – including humans. So if the chicken is Clean, its probably just as clean as the filthy humans in the room. :)
Why does scip have a swastika on his shirt? it it a reference to the swastika’s real meaning, or are the Nazi’s good guys in this reality?
Because the swastica is an asian symbol for one of the winds i think north, OR a symbol for the sun.
I think the swastika was originally a symbol for the Eternal Return, the idea that time is cyclical, not linear. It’s a popular idea even now in some circles, ‘cept that heat death kinda gets in the way.
The traditional swastika can face either direction, but the Nazi swastika always faces the opposite direction from the one on his shirt.
It’s a Buddhist holy symbol; rather fitting.
along with all the other answers you’ve gotten, it’s also a hindu symbol. the nazis had it second. or third, for that matter.
Yeah, Nazis kinda messed that one up for the world. Buddhists are still arguing whether or not they can modify it somehow to try and remove the connotation.
So he’s wearing a kilt and wielding a chicken? I’m intrigued.
That’s by far the best used of the verb “wielding” I’ve ever seen.
That’s a kind of holey reality isn’t it?
Kilt, chicken, and swastika…I’m intrigued.
What is the point of this interlude?
the shape of the swastika is actually a Hindu holy symbol and Siddhartha Gautama was Hindu before he founded Buddhism so maybe some symbols transfered
The symbol gained prominence in Germany in the 19th century as a good-luck charm. The Nazis adopted and made it a signature of Nazi Germany.
Not just germany but all over europe. There was a Swastika Laundry Service for a long time.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika_Laundry
I would say that the flame in the center is the flame in all of us. The divine fire. The swastika, like many other symbols is universal. Still used extensively in Asia today. The Red Swastika society functions like the Red Cross, Red Crescent etc does in the rest of the world.
