The BBC has a newsbit about a Cargo Cult:

Villagers believe that their messiah was responsible for sending the generous US military and its cargo to them.

Islanders are convinced that John Frum was an American. Every year they parade in home-made US army uniforms beneath the Stars and Stripes.

They hope one day to entice another delivery of cargo.

Evil idea of the day: Pack an airplane full of stuff, fly to this island, and pretend to be gods.
