This is a question Pointless Experiments

Pavlov's Frog writes: I once spent 20 minutes with my eyes closed to see what it was like being blind. I smashed my knee on the kitchen cupboard, and decided I'd be better off deaf as you can still watch television.

Lyrical Experimentation?
As a good Catholic youngster in dirty aul Dublin town, we were made to sing in the choir lest our souls should go to the devil. We learned one latin song which went thus:

Ecce Panis Angelorum
Factus Cibus Viatorum
Vere Panis Filiorum
Non Mittendus Canibus

Whilst to this day I can remember it word for word, I have never known what it means. However, what it signified was an opportunity for 40 or so 11-12 year old boys to sing the following obscenities en masse in church to the oblivious ears of a devout congregation;

Itchy Penis Angelorum
Fucktus Cibus Geeatorum
Very Penis Filiorum
Non Mittendus Cannibus

Stiches? Yes
Tears? Yes
Salvation? P'raps not.

Et de virginie
Qui nobis est natum. In mundo nascitur, veritum.

Metella stabat in atrium!

not a clue, have I. We learned it by rote and abandoned it once we were done.

Dominus vobiscum!

In choir
As teenage girls (that find filthy innuendo in absolutely everything) we found it very hard to sing the hymn that ends each verse with a resounding "come, lord, come!" without giggling.

it was bollocks. Something about virgin birth, then metella is standing in the hallway.

3 years of latin stood me in good stead.

Metella is presumably the voice of God then
or The Metatron (which makes him sound like a transformer (COOL!)).

All things Bright and Beautiful
This Children's Hymn has a verse that starts:

"The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,"

Wasn't Metella Caecilus' wife?
