Illinois Pastafarian Wants to Wear a Colander on his Head for His Driver’s License Picture

Old article but a relevant one.

June 22, 2013 by Hemant Mehta

A few years ago, Austrian Niko Alm won the right to wear a colander, the official headgear for Pastafarians, in his driver’s license picture:


In February of this year, 25-year-old Aaron Williams of New Jersey tried to do something similar but got rejected.

And now it’s happening again.

On May 9th, Donald Hoover went to renew his license in Pekin, Illinois. He figured wearing a colander wouldn’t be a problem since state law allows for “religious head dressings not covering any areas of the open face.” The person assisting him, after speaking with his superiors, eventually told Hoover he couldn’t wear it because Illinois didn’t recognize Pastafarianism as an official religion.

Pastafarianism, even if it is a joke religion, deserves the same rights and privileges as any other belief. Who is to say what a "legitimate religion" is or is not? States, governments, groups and organizations that try and deny them the same rights are illiberal and discriminatory and should be called out on it.

From the Pastafarian website:

Whatever you decide, remember this

FSM is a real, legitimate religion, as much as any other. The fact that many see this is as a satirical religion doesn’t change the fact that by any standard one can come up with, our religion is as legitimate as any other. And *that* is the point.


How to Troll a bank like a Pro...

After 65 years of saving, an 81-year-old Slaton man has deposited $816 worth of pennies at Prosperity Bank.

Ira Keys hasn't spent a penny since he was 17 years old, because of advice his father gave him.

"He says, 'Whatever you do son, save your money,'" Keys said. "Back when I started in '52, I didn't have a lot of money, so I saved pennies and I just kept saving them."

The collection weighed in at about 500 pounds.

Now this is how a pro trolls a bank

Anyone else sick that...

our state will be celebrating "Confederate Heroes Day" on FREAKING Martin Luther King, Jr. Day?

I think it is disgusting that we even have a CHD at all. The confederacy was created and run by traitors who betrayed their country because they didn't get their way in an election and because they wanted to defend and promote the EVIL of slavery.

Not only is this day, imho, a slap in the face to every single African American living in our state; but to every decent Texan of conscience. To add insult to injury, to have it coincide with MLK day is a disgrace.

CHD should be abolished, or at the very least renamed Texas Civil War Memorial Day, and honor the loss of life back then...rather than the racists who betrayed our country. But knowing the politics of our state, I won't hold my breath on that happening anytime soon.

Sorry for the rant, but I had to complain about this somewhere.

Lay down your bets religion groupers its about to get MYTHOLOGICAL in here!

Oh, And be aware before clicking that link or watching the video, it does contain some foul language. Its a rap battle by the gods of thunder and lighting, what do you expect?

Ten Ways to Become a Better WoW Player


By Gergo Vas

One of the hardest things in World of Warcraft is making the transition from leveling and playing casually to joining raids or even dungeon groups. YouTuber LazyPeon's video, tuned for Warlords of Draenor, helps a lot.

It's a really good summary of everything, from UI setups to group communication, that's necessary to do to make this step. It'll be a bumpy ride, but at the end, you'll be able to beat all the raid bosses, just like Finnish top guild Paragon did a few days ago, as you can see in the above pic.

Japanese High School Holds "Sex Change Day"

I thought this was pretty cool story and I thought this would be the best group to post it in. If it is in any way inappropriate let me know and I will self-delete it.

By Brian Ashcraft

Yesterday wasn't your typical day at Fuji Hokuryo High School in Yamanashi Prefecture. Male and female students could trade uniforms for what the school dubbed "Sex Change Day" (セクスチェンジ・デー or sekusu chenji dee). The event made the national news.

According to one of Japan's largest papers, Asahi Shimbun (via game site My Game News Flash), the day took its name from "sex" and "exchange" (交換 or koukan)—though, perhaps, calling it "Gender Change Day" would have been a lot more accurate. Boys donned plaid skirts and ribbons, and girls wore slacks and neckties. The point was to allow students the freedom to separate themselves from predetermined notions of manliness and femininity.

In Japanese high schools and junior high schools, the male and female students typically have different uniforms. Sometimes they both wear blazers, but other parts of the uniform are genderified. Some schools have male students wear uniforms called "gakuran," while female students wear sailor suits, which draw an even sharper line between boys and girls.

I use this:

[font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal]YOUR MESSAGE HERE [/font]

[font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal]The font-family part tells your computer what font family to use. In my case Papyrus. If the computer reading your script does not support that script it will display [font face='Brush Script MT' size=5]Brush Script MT[/font], and if not that the oh so hated [font face='comic sans MS']comic sans MS[/font] font. If none of those work it will then use whatever fantasy font family your computer does support.

The size tells it what size to use and color what color to make the font. You can change
[font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT',''Lucida handwriting MT','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson ] fonts[/font] multiple times within each other

If you want to be lazy you could use
[font size=5 color=scarlet face='Brush Script MT']this[/font] instead but the font might not be supported by their computer and will default back to the normal script

I highly suggest if you use a font with spaces in it like [font color=scarlet size=3 face='comic sans ms'] Comic Sans MS [/font] you put apostrophes before and after like this [font size=3 color=scarlet face='comic sans ms']'Comic Sans MS'[/font]

I also suggest reading these links for more information:[/font]


[font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal] I hope this [font style="font-family:'Brush Script MT',''Lucida handwriting MT','forte',cursive;" size=5 color=crimson]helped!!![/font][/font]

Edit:[font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal] Yes, I know I use the three most hated fonts on the internet. But I like them!!![/font]

PS: [font style="font-family:papyrus,'Brush Script MT','comic sans MS',fantasy;" size=3 color=teal] For anyone interested in trying this; just copying my post below the quote and pasting it into a reply and previewing it to see how it looks on your screen[/font]

There has been a lot of talk about labels here and in the other room lately and yeah they do suck

They divide people and oversimplify things.

But you know what sucks more? Having people, who oppose your very existence, labeling you instead and having it stick. The reality that those who oppose labels refuse to accept is that you either define yourself, or you allow others to define you.

Words have power. If you allow others to label you, then they get to define who you are and have power over you. Power to tell the world what you believe and what you don't believe. Power to call you moral or immoral, power to deem you worthy or to turn you into a monster. Power to strengthen you or strip you of your very humanity...and then, in the most extreme of circumstances, your life.

By defining yourself you are taking power over how you are perceived by others. You are telling the world what it is that makes you unique, and to do so on your own terms. You are telling the world what makes you...YOU!!!

Getting rid of labels sounds good on paper, but what it really does is empower intolerance and ends individuality. It is a demand that we all be alike, that we all be the same. It is conformist thinking that rejects anything different, anything unique, anything valuable that the majority does not have or want.

To the anti-label crowd, you are not an African American, you are just an American. You are not gay, you are just another person. If your experience does not meld with the majority experience, they are going to want to pretend your issues do not exist. To deny you. To deny the adversities you face. To say, "Why do you have a problem with that? Why do you insist on dividing us?" To push you back into the closet and pretend you don't exist! This is why you see the right wing demanding we stop seeing the world in colors and demand we all be colorblind, because they are the majority. Because they know they will win that way.

Its the ultimate whitewashing under the banner of conformity! One that tries to disguise itself as benevolent egalitarian collectivism when it fact it is a tool of fascist hierarchical collectivism that sacrifices individuality at the alter of tyranny of the majority.

"Why do you have to bring up your sexuality/atheism? Why can't we all just be the same."


Because we are NOT all the same! Because those things are parts of me!



I will not be ashamed of being an atheist or any of my labels!

I will not be silent and fade into the background because my label makes you uncomfortable. I am not going to let you tell me what I do or do not believe! To further STIGMATIZE the label I identify with. I am not going to let you associate me and my label with things they have nothing to do with!

I am proud of who I am and I WILL NOT LET YOU OR ANYONE ELSE DEFINE ME!!!

In conclusion, I would like to say, if you don't like my labels then don't use them. I don't care how you label yourself, and I believe it is your RIGHT to label yourself as you wish. However, if you do make up your own label, do it on your own terms. Don't use my label to define your label; because, when you do that, whether you intend to or not, you are applying your own biases to the label and redefining me in the process.


I am Proud to be who I am. A Liberal. An Agnostic.
