You don’t know what’s going to annoy the gods these days, honestly. A ski resort to be built in the Himalayas has come unstuck because the locals gods did not like the idea. Too environmentally unsound, an opinion poll of the deities declared, which is a good enough reason for me. [hat tip j0nz]

    ‘Nine out of 10 gods who expressed a preference …’

    Can a god tick the ‘Don’t know’ box?

    Maybe I could find some local gods who hate golf…

    It’s an interesting aside. I’m quite into my climbing and I did a research project on the Sherpa. Everest was first climbed by an Englishman and his Sherpa companion simply because before his arrival, the locals had no desire to climb it. Because it was essentially the representation of God – the mother Goddess, Chomomiyolangsangma (the original name for Everest).

    ‘As keen students of the Hindu religion, Mr Ford and Mr Sims will know that, when the correct offerings are made, the gods are often open to persuasion.’
