Thank you for the encouragement, Rev. Powell. I'm glad that you understood where I was coming from. The official plural of SubGenius is "SubGenii," although both plurals are used in our "holy books" (there are three). Anything a SubGenius priest says at anytime immediately becomes part of official orthodox church dogma. The closest thing we've actually had to a SubGenius defrocking was David Byrne from the Talking Heads.

Years ago, I declared the official plural to be "Subgeniuses".  It's been part of official church dogma since. "Subgenii" is the usage of the infidel heretic schismatics.  No offense.   Wink

You don't know about the defrocking process because you haven't penetrated far enough into the cult yet.  I have penetrated so far that I only needed to read the first book; "Bob" himself gave me a store credit for the other two, on the condition I never redeem it.

About defrocking: it may not be worth it.  The paperwork is awful, and the welts last a lifetime.

I made my own paperwork, and "Bob" completed that. I retroactively declare your doctrine as apocrypha.

The Amish have been known to seperate on a difference of opinion on hat or button color or the shape of a wagon's wheels.

Yep, some Mennonite groups I know can be distinguished by black hats or straw hats, steel-clad or rubber-faced wagon wheels, and little things like that. I can remember friends referring to people as "Black Hats."

Man, the Amish are cool. "I never wear buttons, but I got a cool hat and my homies agree that I really look good in black; fool..." And they are one of the few groups that actually "turn the other cheek." I think it's cool that their clergy recieve no formal training and are elected by lot. They elect the bishop out of the preachers, and he heads the community. Some groups will allow one telephone in the middle of the community that is for emergencies only. There was one case in which a farmer was too old and had a bad back and couldn't till his lands. Since he had no sons to till the lands for him, the bishop ordered him to get a tractor or something. Some do what they can so they can get medical treatment with minimal hassle and mortality rates. My cousin likes the Amish because they'll treat bullet wounds without informing the police.

Hmmm, "my friend" had trouble copying the DVD onto VHS, they gave up after three tries. They said the picture kept shaking and colours faded in and out to black and white; anyone know anybody who had this same problem?

No, he's a Scientologist (now we're almost back on topic!). Seriously, though, he's into some "questionable" self indulgences that get him shot at.

Sounds like Macrovision, read in the 'Analog Copy Prevention' section.

Keep in mind that 'your friend' was trying to do something that is illegal in some countries and looked at as unethical my many. I am all for people supporting the artists, if you watch an illegal copy of something and like it, do buy a legit copy.

While we're on the subject...I have something to confess. I'm a pagan. First of all, I'm not some kid looking for attention (though I have to admit, many of those do join up,  they usually quit when they realize it doesent make them popular or give them special powers). I had been struggling with my faith for a while, and after reading about it for years decided paganism was the right path for me. I dont have anything against Christianity (I was raised Lutheran, and still attend church on occasion, when my family wants me to), its just that I never felt connected to it. I always hated prosteletyzing, and the idea that anyone who didnt believe exactly what the church believed was going to burn in hell. Whatever feels right is what you should go with, whether its Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, even the Church of the Flying Spagetti Monster, its all good. That said, what I hear about Scientology kind of makes me nervous.

Pagan? Can you be more specific? Wicca? Hindu? Odinist, maybe? Pagan is a broad catagory.

Closer to Wicca, but I'm kind of non-denominational. The circle I'm part of meets at a Unitarian church, and we include anyone from Wiccan/Druid/Hindu/Asatru/Native American  paths, even Christians and Athiests have attended. The rituals are mainly Wiccan, though, with the Lord and Lady (male and female aspects of divinity) being the main focus.

My friend says he supports everyone but Axek Rose and John Travolta.

Anyone notice how Jason X had way better production values, CGI, and Spfx; yet cost only one-third of Battle Earth? Ontop of that, the Jason X people knew they were making a sort of comedy.

Horror films nowadays (especially 'slasher' flicks featuring old school characters) either have an action comedy feel or (in the case of most everything else) aren't made for repeat viewings.

You should be Asatru cos then you believe Thor made those craters in Scandinavia with his hammer!
