Mead, Honeymoons, Sacrificing Virgins, and Sheeple?  What is the Relation?
 
Here is an video I did a while back about the most famous but un recognize potent potable elixir known to man.  It’s origins are so ancient that they are lost in history.  I am talking about MEAD.
The most common knowledge of mead may be from a visit to a Medieval Day festivals, the drink of choice for the historical enthusiast. Or by a homebrewer or wine maker acquaintance.  
   

You will learn something new that even Wikipedia does not know about.  The true origin of the term of Honeymoon.
No one has taken the sociological and philosophical approach to this epic historical phenomena.  
Of course with the demented visions of dr Meno*, he talks about how the human superstitions of cultural prosperity, contributed to the survival of tribes and their customs.  Through the explanation of the relationship between,
Mead, The Honeymoon, The Sacrificing of Virgins, and the Sheeple.  

Here are 2 excerpts from, “The Complete Joy of Homebrewing”, by Charlie Papazian,  3rd  ed., Harper/Collins, 2003.
 
MEAD
 
Page 332-333
‘Mead-the mere mention of the word conjures visions of drinking vessels swaying high in the air. It is the nectar of nectars and one of the most natural drinks ever made by man.
Predating all other forms of concentrated sugars, honey, diluted to honey water, was in all probability one of the first fermented beverages ever concocted by man. With its fermentation came the alcoholic drink we know as MEAD.
The ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians, Scandinavians and Assyrians procured this legendary drink as a vehicle for saturnalian revelry unmatched today. The Inca and Aztec Indians also brewed mead and held it in reverence.
Imbued with legendary intoxicating and aphrodisiacal qualities, mead heralded in and out many a fascinating orgy. Tales, stories and lies abound of the joy, happiness and tragedy mead has brought to its imbibers. Presently, most modern-day social gatherings are simply not of the unbounded caliber they once were. As for mead’s aphrodisiacal character-well, the earth rotates more slowly and perhaps we know a bit too much…. You’ll never know until you check it out.
WHAT IS MEAD?
 In essence, mead is defined as yeast-fermented honey water. Now if one should do an imaginative thing such as add fruit to the honey water, the resulting fermentation is technically called a melomel.  With the addition of grapes, you have a melomel called pyment. Becoming intrigued?  Well, hold on, there’s more. Mead infused with herbs and/or spices is called a methelin.  Honey and apple juice combine to ferment and make cyser.  Finally, a spiced pyment (melomel) is called hippocras. ‘
 

Mead, Honeymoons and Love
 page 336
‘Who would have thought that the bees, the moon and the magical brews of man could combine to add to the bliss, luster and memories of weddings.  Mead is a beverage of love. The drinking of Mead has has held responsible for fertility and the birth of sons. This is where the tradition of that honeymoon got it’s  start. If mead were consumed for one month (one moon) after a wedding, then in nine months a son would be born and the mead maker congratulated. The custom of drinking mead at  weddings and for one month after initiated our present-day custom of the honeymoon. Interestingly, mead drinking developed quite a reputation for its ability to increase the chances of bearing sons, so much that a special drinking cup, called the Mazer Cup, ( see photos below),was handed down from generation to generation. The couple that drank from the cup would bear sons to carryon the family name and increase the male birth rate, important in the days of constant war.
Fact or Folly?
 Scientists have been doing animal experiments and have found they can increase the chances of bearing males the altering the body’s pH. It is known that the acidity or alkalinity of the female body during conception can influence the sex of the  newborn. Blood sugar levels do alter pH.
Mead is indeed a noble  drink. For more than 5,000 years, Virgil, Plato, Plutarch, Zeus, Venus, Jupiter, Odysseus, Circe, the Argonaut, Boewulf,  Aphrodite, Bacchus, Odin, Valhalla, The Sanskrit, Thor,  King Arthur, Queen Elizabeth I, the French, Greeks, Mayans, Africans, English, Irish, Poles, Hungarians, ‘Germans, and present day homebrewers and even the Australian Aborigines all likened part of their enjoyment or life to mead.
Centuries ago the making of mead as art, as regulated by custom and statutes. The brewing of mead was not done by just anyone. Certain individuals were trained and held in the highest esteem for turning honey into the magic of Mead.  
Today every homebrewer has the know-how to become a dignitary and the maker or mead for special occasions or for any occasion. The stronger versions keep for years, as does good marriage . And as for having sons, you will have to experiment on your own.’

dr Meno goes off in a different direction with his many talents on the past and History of Mead making. One of the oldest documented alcohol beverages of mankind. He relates the Honeymoon fable with mead to the sacrifice of virgins in Aztec and Mayan cultures.
He is considered a Mead expert winning many ribbons in competitions and being a certified Home Brewing Judge.
Listen to dr Meno, The true Ex-Patriot, on radiopacsur.com broadcasting from Costa Rica. He has been protesting bad corporations and bad government and has always promoted making tax free alcohol. He had a sign in front of his stores, HELP STOP GOV'T WASTE, MAKE TAX FREE ALCOHOL. The ingredients are food products and are sold as tax free consumables. Hence, TAX FREE booze. It is legal.

Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Matthew 25:1-13

I show that the Muslim has no assurance of Paradise, except if he dies a martyr. But he dies for an illusion because it can be shown that the concept of the houris (72 virgins) is not inspired but a cultural borrowing. Note at timestamp 2:24, I misspoke and said "22" when I meant "72".
