Have you spent five minutes on the internet? We spend hours arguing the merits of pirates and ninjas. We usually do so under the influence. While watching porn. These are very compatible with nerds.

OK, in response to Pastafarians being ex-Atheists, I am both a Pastafarian and a current Atheist. (The FSM, pesto be upon him, is my chosen fictional deity). I freely admit to being a nerd - I have very solid nerd credentials, dating back to watching the original Star Trek before it was in reruns.

But I don't see anything un-nerdlike about Pirates, Grog and Strippers. Honestly, haven't you ever been to a Renfair? Plenty of drunken Pirates and scantily-clad wenches, and it's total nerd-vana.

However, I share the concern about beer that started off this topic. I have faith that a side vent of the beer volcano spews hard cider. But there really has to be chocolate there also to make it worthwhile. I'm sure His Noodlyness will provide.

Parrot, while the Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster is the one true church, and the FSM is the one true FSM, all doctrine, gospel and literature share one thing in common with other religions: it is open to interpretation.

Maybe you prefer your strippers remain fully clothed and seriously interested in monogamous relationships. Maybe my beer volcano spews tomato juice.

But some sacrifices do have to be made. Here is your new hook and place your hand on this chopping block. Now, this might sting a little.

According to What Dreams May Come, Heaven is what you make it. I firmly believe that whatever you truly desire will turn up somewhere in there.

There was a period before I found the FSM where I thought that when you died you would spend eternity doing whatever you spent most of your life doing - sort of like they (you know, the folks in charge of eternity) assumed that if you spent that much energy doing it in RL, you must have enjoyed it, so you can haz cookie. I was terrified that I'd spend eternity being yelled at for leaving food scraps in the sink.

A friend of mine believes that life is nothing more than a sorting-out-process in which your actions decide the fate of your "spirit" in the afterlife. Sounds like all of 'em right? There's a catch. You don't have to believe anything. Atheists get to go to a "Heaven" of their making, murderers get a "Heaven" of eternal murder! Basically what he thinks is that any and every spirit gets a "Heaven" suited to it.

I highly recommend the novel of What Dreams May Come. I love what happens to the self-righteous. I've always maintained that it's a sin to indulge in that particular mindset.

It does make sense to me, though, that we do affect Heaven once we get there. After all, if it were static and dull, I don't think it would be much of a Heaven, do you? I don't want to die and wind up in the 'burbs, fer cryin' out loud.

if this was a serious religious concept, implying that a worshiper does not like beer would be excomunication in a flash, and possibly being stoned... now wait, being stoned? hell yeah!

Hey, now, I've been good for a while! My chief intoxicant these days is booze, preferably grog or a nice malt beverage. Though the green stuff do make me nice and mellow...

A nice tequila. Patron preferably.

I don't care for tequila. Something about the texture just turns me off of the stuff. I do like vodka, though primarily because it mixes so well. I make a decent fuzzy navel, if I do say so myself.

Vodka is my usual choice because the cheap stuff tastes excactly like the good stuff when mixed.
