|As in, "If you touch me, you will die."|
Or, "If 'B,' then you will die, for all 'B."
At least I haven't seen a resurgence of the Kali cult, yet... Although there is apparently an actual temple of Kali somewhere in the OC, as reported some years ago in a gushing "Oh, isn't it so cute and multicultural!" in the OC Register.
The Kali cultists or "thugees" ran a kill and rob operation in India for centuries, paying off local authorities for the privilege of posing as fellow travellers and then strangling entire travelling parties and burying them in "sacred groves," at crossroads all over India. Tens of thousands of travelers died, with their wealth going to the hidden Kali temples, typically surrounded by dense jungle, death to enter, while the murderers were rewarded with powerful drugs that made them feel like gods. One guy, a Brit from the East India Corporation that ran India at the time, exposed the whole thing, going undercover and actually joining the cult.
