Is there a difference?

leprechaun semen

Actually, Leprechaun's are notoriously afraid of water and any vessels which sail upon it.

That's something I don't understand about all the witchy/pagan people here in the States.  If faeries, witches, and magical/supernatural creatures in general can't cross running water, then how are can they possible be here? 

Oh, oh, oh, they say, that's all myth.  So it's fucking myth only when it suits them, eh?  Because the running water rule predates any sort of organized paganism. 

The up-side is that no one in America should fear vampires or other similar ghouls, because they can only cross small bodies of running water -- rivers and the sort. 

Witches, we have two options.  Real witches:  No.  Because it's hereditary, and there's no way you could cross an ocean.  Which means all witches in America, if we're to insist that they're here, fit into the second definition, which is far more popular:  Communing with Satan.

All outdated concepts now because, if we were to actually follow the old religions with any sense of history and how they were, we'd realize that there's nothing magical in America except for scary Skinwalkers and spider women and other horrible indians.

Modern mysticism might as well have "For Entertainment Purposes Only" stamped on it.

Witches migrated from Russia across the land bridge!

Correct, Tyson. Although it's the frozen Bering Straits, not a land bridge.

Technically... oceans aren't "running" water, Nacho - that's reserved for rivers and streams than "run" along a set course, rather than swilling around in tides and currents like seas and oceans.

Isn't the water thing only relevant if they can't fly?

But that doesn't matter anyway, cause America is pretty gay. All the cool stuff is in Britain/Scandinavia/Europe/Africa and whatnot... which have all been land-joined in previous ecological cycles [i.e. with sea levels and whatnot].

Leprechauns, fairies, faeries, trolls, demons, daemons, goblins, hobgoblins, pixies... etc etc etc.

Does flying negate the rule?  And why would all these magical creatures want to cross the Bering Straight?  I've always thought that seemed like alot of work.  Cold, man.  And faeries from Ireland?  How in the world would they ever have gotten to America using the Bering Strait?  What witch would actually decide to go along, anyway?

Hey, I heard there's a way to another continent!

Oh?  Where?

Up north.

...

...

Up north?

Yes.

Um, like, where up north?

Oh, you know, a ways.  You coming?

A ways...like..?

Um...all the way up.

All the way up? 

Yeah.  Like, Alaska and stuff.

What?  Dude.  That's, like, a big fuck off glacier right now.  Haven't you been watching the news?  Wall. Of. Ice.

Yeah, sure, but you can cross over it.

Yeah, sure, you can die doing that.  I'm staying right down here.  We got supermarkets, health care... I don't get this whole tromping around in the ice and snow.

But you need to follow the tribe and do witchy things!

There's not much witchy shit I can do if I'm wearing my bodyweight in fur, walking in chest deep snow and getting attacked by starving sled dogs all day!

Faeries and Witches can do what they like - probably even teleport.

That way one can negate many problems of transit.

How do they know coordinates, then?  I mean, okay, there's a New World.  I'll just pop on over... But they don't know anything about it. And what if they popped into the wrong place and fell in with a tribe of indians?  Who would win?  A European witch or an indian Skinwalker?

You ask such simple questions.

ESP and Remote Viewing, nacho. That's how they see it. How do they know where to quest? They are natural, earth creatures, and simply ask Mother Earth - "yo, bitch - wassup? Me and the posse here wanna be mosying on down wherever one be's wantin', hoe."

Then they teleport. Also, if coordinates where wrong, they'd simply hover mid-air, you fool. These creatures can fly.

So if they go teleporting to a land that is already richly populated with supernatural creatures -- bigfoot, indian shit, other shit -- how's that work out? How do you just assimilate into that culture without becoming transformed into some sort of hybrid mysticism by the time you get to the modern day?  Because all the wavy gravy pagan people, though altering definitions a bit, still follow somewhat "traditional" lines. You'd think modern witches would be in business suits, talking on the cell phone, making things go.  Not dancing in the woods.

Hey, I'm not saying that they *did* go to America. I'm just explaining how they could've.

I think you're pulling this whole teleport theory out of thin air, man.

Well, first, they need the knowledge.  So is that universally shared by "Mother Earth"?  If so, were they teleporting all over the place all the time?  And if that's the case, how come we don't have the same sort of culture?  Like Aztec witches flying around on brooms and vampires with bad accents rising up in Vermont and faeries untying clothes lines in rural Oregon?

Second -- why would any of them let it leak out that running water fucks with them?  Why not just pop behind a tree, teleport, then call from the other side of the river.  Yoo-hoo!  It's shallow over there!  I made it fine!
