Re: What are you EATING right now?

That paella combo sounds really great, Roy. I do a lot of free-form cooking like that too. Tigger, I have had a similar experience of narrowing the diet over the years. For me, it's the opposite of yours, though. My system will only tolerate tiny amounts of carbohydrates. I haven't had a loaf of bre...

Not for the first time, but I drag it back out once in a while. Still awesome.

Re: Legal restrictions and Pastafarian Ministers

Blah, I forgot about county registrations. Once your religion is filed with the state, individual clergy may have to inform their local/county clerk that they will be performing such ceremonies for weddings to be filed with the clerk's office. Basically, it's a way for the local government to maybe ...

Re: Legal restrictions and Pastafarian Ministers

I'd like to posit a question. Has anyone actually filed Pastafarianism/FSM as a religion in any state/territory of the USA? If so, the recurring insecurity regarding legitimacy is irrelevant. If not, someone could do so and solve the problem indefinitely, or at least as long as they maintain the pap...

Re: Beliefs Question

Hiya FlyMario. You are probably an atheist because you find the world-view proposed by major religions to be inaccurate at best, counterproductive to the advancement of your species at least, and obviously derivative and self-serving at large. This is a function of evolution -- both their emergence ...

Re: Religious Status

(... sneaks back into the forum as if the last 6 months of intense shamanistic practices hadn't cut him off from 21st century society in any way...) In the US, you are an official religion if you file your religion with any state or territorial government, providing some basic information on who are...

Re: Whisk(e)y

I'd say hooray for the Japanese if they are really making the effort to create traditional, high-quality whiskies. The climate in their northern regions should be fine for growing distinctive barley. That's a long term learning curve, but if they succeed they could take take up some of the demand, w...

"If you know what you do, you are blessed. If you do not know what you do, you are accursed." -- Jesus on violating the sabbath for practical necessities, or not being deluded by dogma to the point of self-injury. As a guest on this forum or among this religion, I would encourage the Pasta...

Wow, that does bring back some racy memories. I'd better hit the forward button before I go do something I'll regret.

Re: What's The Last Movie You Saw?

i've been watching some Stargate SG1 and Andromeda reruns on dvd as an "adventure break" from more serious stuff in my life. PKMKII: Maybe the people behind the movie deliberately don't want the protagonist to resolve their personality or identity problem and come to a mature conclusion? I...

Re: Traditional Pastafarian Wedding

In most jurisdictions, you can officiate at a religious ceremony if you are a clergyperson of a legally filed/recognized religious organization (somewhere). The already available ministers may be able to simply send you a Certificate of Ordination under their own authority and/or filing. When I did ...

"The Time Machine" & "Temporalia" by Alan Parsons. "The Time Machine" is one of his very cool instrumental bits. As for "Temporalia" it's a very poignant monologue with some background music: "When you look out into the night sky and you see the stars...

Re: What's The Last Movie You Saw?

Since I've waded through so many hours of military and UFO video crap already, I'll give it one more quick note/response. I haven't looked at stuff from the ww2 years much, but USA did eventually build some flying disks, among other integrated-body-airfoil concepts, some of which probably had protot...
