Welcome to the testing grounds, new peoples! Please do try to avoid getting the blue goo on you. We haven't been able to peg down exactly what it is yet but whatever it is, it does NOT like the human skeleton.

It is now.

It's called a "Fish Posed". It sounds stupid when you say it wrong.
Also, welcome and all that.

Welcome, Chris. Weddings are dependent on where you live - some places you can, some places you can't.

There is no universally accepted boilerplate for conducting a wedding ceremony. However, you can always tell if it's been done correctly by carefully analyzing the situation after it's over. As long as the couple who intended to wed end up married (to each other), then you've done it right.

Don't use the search function. Seriously, don't bother, it's absolute dog toffee. Google is much better :welcome:

Hey guys I was rejected twice from the TMR QLD (Dept of transport Queensland) from having my photo with strainer on head.
I am going to sue and wanted some advice before I speak to a solicitor.
The second time I was rejected they actually took the photo then refused.

I showed them that I was complying with there regulations online which states

"You must remove your hat or cap. If you wear headwear for religious reasons, it must be adjusted so that all facial features from the bottom of your chin to top of your forehead (including both edges of your face) are clearly shown."

I also told them Church of flying spaghetti monster was a registered religion in Australia however they still refused so I think I have a case as I feel this is discrimination against my religion.

Any advice would be great. I couldn't find any other place or way I could post anywhere else. Thanks guys.
