I suppose that makes a change from the usual Jedi or Klingon they usually get on them. :lol:

I briefly thought it would be cool to be a pastafarian. I loved their science :lol:

Sorry, I originally thought you had made a typo and meant to say Rasrafarian, :P and I was well prepared to make a variety of spaghetti flavoured jokes. However, I was startled to find on surfing the net that such a religion actually exists. :shock: ALL HAIL THE FSM! :lol: Actually, I'm not quite a convert yet.
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

Are you suggesting that you have to live in a case if you want to be your own God? ... :!: :?: :wink:

I have a fridge magnet that states: 'Chocolate is proof that God wants us to be happy.'
Will the chocolate melt if kept in a case with no temperature control?

P.S. Jan - did you tunnel out or escape your incarceration by other means?? :lol:

:lol: No - I didn't mean live in a case. You certainly don't need a god, but belief is a useful survival trait and who better to believe in than yourself? :wink:

Chocolate is a natural product that man made delectably edible (and safe to eat too!) - god(s) may have been involved, but they were probably very naughty ones - like Dionysus and all those nymphs :twisted: Fridges were a good move too but mostly we have Electrolux to thank for that don't we? :? :P

Still haven't tunnelled out except for a quick raid on Tesco's in a neighbour's 4x4 last Weds - did snow a bit today but I may defrost the car tomorrow if the housemate starts winding me up again. I had a blissful day of totally blocking him out today :P
