Jehovahs Witnesses, you know you want to become one.

If you hurry up you can become one of the 40k in heaven.

It was 144,000.

Must have been quite the gold rush in the early days to fill in those slots. Finite numbers makes sense for a religion that originally had a pretty short timeframe for the predicted apocalypse. I think they've backed off picking precise dates for the end of the world, but stuck with the firm numbers of spots in Heaven. Kind of a crummy incentive for current and future members.

Isn't this the number that the twelve tribes have to contribute to God's army or something? 12k from each of the 12 tribes?

a missionary went to an Arab's house and asked if he'd like to be a Jehova's Witness and the Arab answered, wallah I never saw the accident

I never did really follow the numerology. It does obviously divide by 12, and that seems to be a recurring theme in Biblical numerology, so...probably?

Well, they do have the whole Paradise Earth thing on top of going to Heaven. So you're not totally screwed if you get in late.

FWIW, it's not a wide stance.

If you took the time to read the above posts you would realize California is racist totalitarian state that locks other people they consider a threat in internment camps .  Thats one of the big draws of the Golden State ,its everything to everybody,  . 

To be fair, they do racially segregate their prisons.

No they don't. The inmates segregate themselves. For example when you go into L.A. county if you are Latino you are asked by Southsiders (Southern California Latino gang members) "Who you are going to roll with?" You either roll with Paisas (Illegals), or the Southsiders themselves. The Southsiders run most jails, and prisons in California, so you get better perks like the Sheriffs giving you Crystal meth. Asians have their own fish tank, and can't be on the mainline because they don't pay taxes to a certain prison gang that controls the Southsiders. Also Whites will roll with Southsiders for the most part, and Blacks get along with Northsiders (Northern California Latino gang members.)

The segregation in California is mostly about money, and power by the inmates themselves.

Ill have to defer to Hombre on this one I've only been in the local hoosegow

They do officially segregate prisoners in at least some parts of the prison system. It's been widely reported that they do, at least.
