Greetings to you my brother,

 

After 40 years of marriage (well in August it will be 40), I can assure you that the Maxim "Happy Wife, happy life" are words I live by.  One can be a fallen sinner, and Christ will easily forgive.  Upset thine wife, and prepare fo the fires of hell:evil:

In solidarity,

Rev. Calli

 

There speaks a man of wisdom and experience.  I started down that path several times, but never made it to the altar.

I had a fairly uncomfortable conversation with a guy at GenCon a couple years back. He was absolutely irate about the new movies ignoring the old books. A guy from the 501st was using the ATM behind him, and rolled his eyes at me in sympathy while leaving. When the grown man in the stormtrooper uniform thinks you take Star Wars too seriously...

When you consider the remarkable feat that there was meticulous care taken in the construction of the stories and their spin-offs so as to avoid any conflicting history or details, yes, some readers do take the work seriously out of respect for all the serious work that went in there.

That's about as serious as my son and I took it.  The fact that Lucas allowed authors to write stories in his made up universe with the stipulation that they adhere to each others story line was something remarkable to me.  But not that remarkable...

I have formed three rules for living with a woman.

 

1.  Always leave the toilet seat down.  She cares.  Do it.

 

2.  Bring home the flowers, before she gets mad at you.  Otherwise, you feel romantic one night, and she wants to know -- What did you do!?  

 

3.  Take out the trash.  Women hate taking out the trash.  Don't ask why.  It's a man's job.  Just do it.

 

In other matters, I take my cue from the lions.  Killing is women's work.       :D

Yeah, sure. But there's a point where people are just upsetting themselves over stuff that has no real impact on their life. It is one thing to care, and another to obsess, you know?

People also claim the Flying Spaghetti Monster as their religion.  That does not mean they take it seriously.  


Possibly.  Just as possible they believe in the tenets of the religion as well -- maybe not so much in "the Flying Spaghetti Monster" itself, but in the values and the message the community gives.  Like the ULC, for instance -- no centralized church dogma, only "that which is right."

Tenets?  Of Jediism?  What did you have in mind?  Not the war between the Light Side and the Dark Side of the Force.

I was speaking more of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster in that quote -- but look at the tenets of Jediism, too:

https://web.archive.org/web/20160320113855/https://www.templeofthejediorder.org/doctrine-of-the-order

They're not so much about the fictional/figurative war of the light and dark side from the movies, but more about the code that the Jedi from the movies ascribe to -- with some other additions to them, too, as I'm sure there's some individualistic license.  This is what I was referring to.

That was an eye opener.  Thank you.
