If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

According to my 7 year old son
« on: February 23, 2013, 08:27:49 pm »
"Cats start out as oracles, then you tame them with fish and they become cats. Oracles live in the jungle, they look kind of like cougars, but they are not. They are magic and will run away from you if you don't bring them fish."
Really?  So, hey, want to go fishing?  I\'ve got a telescope, and it\'s going to be a dark night, so we should see the fish really well.
...what, I\'m not talking about fishing?  That\'s stargazing?  It\'s all doing-stuff, so it\'s the same thing, right?

Oracles? :confused:
 
Sounds like the lil guy's found out about the sooper sekrit feline cult. Better be careful, or they'll carry him away to be a high priest or something.

Bast presides over the cult. But she prefers chocolate over fish. ;)

Yeah I was a little confused as well. Whilst I think there is something pretty special about cats, magical maybe even, oracles surprised me.

He comes up with some pretty wild stuff. I am just happy he has such an active mind.

Ask him if there are any dogs that start out as oracles. Totally serious.

Sounds like you've got a little story-teller on your hands. :)

Oh indeed. He is a very deep thinker and he has some theories that are actually quite stunning.

I will ask him about the dogs.

Maybe, but a lot of his world revolves around mystical things. I guess thats what happens when you grow up in a house filled with fairy, dragon, God and Goddess type pictures and statues.

 Actually turned out that you were right. He did mean ocelot.

They come from wolves, but then you just get dye and make them what colour you want.

I wonder if your son has been playing Minecraft on the PC recently.  Just thought I'd throw in that nerdy gamer's perspective.

That... was actually my first thought (because I misread oracle as ocelot). Sounds exactly like them. :D:

Turns out that is where he got it from. I never even thought of that as he just comes up with some real wild stuff out of the blue a lot. But when I asked him he said it was Minecraft. If its out of his own thoughts he will usually say his brain told him........

 Sounds like your son has been playing Minecraft, haha. Ocelots are animals in that game that, when fed fish, do turn into domestic house cats.
The Oracle part however...perhaps he is dipping his feet into the world of paganism?
