God commands Joseph to bring his people from Fayette, NY to Ohio, despite it being around 20F/-6C and windy outside. Marie and Bryce have an attack of empathy after Joseph’s followers are commanded to leave all their worldly possessions behind so they can live as sharecroppers on a rich guys’ land. God decides to withhold anything good from his followers just in case they might one day become prideful and need to be exterminated. 14 drinks, or about 2 beers, which frankly, isn’t nearly enough for this sobfest.

Episode 118: D&C 36-37
Two quickie revelations ensure that a local rich dude feels extra special, and that a Bible translation is paused due to impending church migration from NY to OH. Marie and Bryce rejoice in finishing these revelations so quickly, then take a turn for the dark when Marie rants about how the primary spiritual gift for women sometimes kills them.
Four drinks, or less than one beer, but I think you should just take big swigs.

Marie and Bryce learn that rampant pronoun use is incredibly confusing and eventually suss out that Sydney Rigdon will replace Oliver Cowdery as Joseph Smith’s scribe, but first Marie can’t resist geeking out about Lu La Roe clothing. The terrible line spacing and punctuation differences between the original and current versions of chapter/section 35 lower the readability and increase the fun! Seven drinks, or approximately one beer.
BREAKING NEWS, yet another guy is sent forth into the wilderness to preach the gospel. We also have a brief discussion of blood moons and Stargate SG-1, because astronomy is cool. A measly seven drinks, or approximately one beer.
This is an odd set of revelations. The first one is addressed to Parley P. Pratt and Ziba Peterson, telling them to go preach to the Natives on the border with the Lamanites in Missouri. The second one is addressed to Northrop Sweet and Ezra Thayre, telling them to go preach to the Natives on the border with the Lamanites in Missouri; but, the second one is WAAAAAY BETTER!!! The first section is 5 verses long and ends with a pathetic 1 “Drink!” while the second section talks about thrusting sickles, filling open mouths, and referencing the Book of Mormon, all while nearly murdering our livers with 20 “Drinks!” Why would these two revelations be telling different people to do the same thing, yet sound so different in doing so?
“Drink!” count – 21
Over 3 beers!
