If you travel to the furthest glaciers in the south, it is said you can walk into the canyons of ice there. If you find the junction of two canyons that form a perfect square, you can lie down in the middle there and feel no cold. If you listen, the ice will speak and what it says will make poor men rich, and sane men mad.

    Unlike most of the older ritual pastas, this story *does* at least have a potential payoff (ie., cash, lots of cash). At the same time, unlike most of the older ritual pastas, this story has absolutely nothing genuinely creepy. It’s also exceptionally short.

    I actually quite liked this. Very half baked, though, so I can understand the low rating but the concept was kind of nice…i kind of want a rewrite. I appreciate the short subtlety but another, better written paragraph would serve well in elaboration and development.

      You sell the story to Fox News. “Stupid man encounters talking ice” – that’s the stuff great television is made of.

    “If you find the junction of two canyons that form a perfect square, you can lie down in the middle there and feel no cold.”

    “the junction of two canyons that form a perfect square,”

    “two canyons that form a perfect square”

    HOW?

      THE JUNCTION IS THE SQUARE. Like, two canyons that intersect, and the place that they do cross is at a 90 degree angle, so that the space in between makes a square, like two roads at a four-way-intersection. Since they’re made of ice, it’s possible.

        I just can’t really picture anyone calling that a square. If you have two perfectly straight lines perpendicular to one another, then yes, you can draw artificial lines across all of the entrances to the intersection and form a square. Still, “this looks like a square” isn’t really the first thing that comes to my mind when I see that.

    This is like one of those meaningful old proverbs from wise old monks. Except not wise. And not meaningful. And shit.

      That overall judgement might be a bit harsh, but you’re right: This story is slightly reminiscent of the traditional tale of the ring that had the power to make the sad man happy and the happy man sad. The power of that ring came from the words that were inscribed on it: این نیز بگذرد‎ or גם זה יעבור, meaning “This too shall pass”.
