Apparently Bolivian miners kick off Carnival with a ritual llama sacrifice. Bolivia is one of the poorest countries in the Americas. The miners have a pretty rough life. The llama sacrifice is a ritual of giving thanks–for surviving another year.

In the continuing effort to maximize inscrutability, key participants in the SIP community today announced a blanket renaming to “Alan”.
According to Alan Roach, “Almost every conversation I’ve had in the last year or so has been peppered with annoying interjections of ‘which Alan?’ or ‘Alan who?’. These interruptions slow the conversation, often to the point of derailing it”.
Alan Campbell adds “I’ve always felt the legacy-Alans suffered an unfair disadvantage in both written and verbal discussions in the SIP community. This move levels the playing field.”
Alan Camarillo was unavailable for interview, but responded to an initial query e-mail with “I’m not following you”. Other prominent Alans were overheard saying “This is a really dumb idea”, and “That doesn’t bother me at all”.
“Furthermore,” Alan said, “this will help filter out all those crazy ideas that Alan guy keeps proposing.”
Rumors of the formation of the OAIPL (original Alan identity preservation league) have so far been unsubstantiated.
