Oh dear Jedi!

As seen on a few Friends Journals today.

It's the UKs fourth biggest religion and now  the campaign for The Force to be seen as a recognised religion is being taken to the UN and beyond...

November 16th?

Some Jedi they are. Everyone knows that the Jedi dai is 4th May.

Say it with me; "May the 4th be with you."

November 16th is May 4th in a Galaxy Far, Far Away.

I must admit that I genuinely don't get this.

Fair enough, 400,000 people put "Jedi" down as their religion for the census. But that was some kind of satirical joke/protest, right? I mean, they weren't seriously saying that they don't realise that Star Wars is fiction, were they?

I dunno, I kinda believe in the whole Force binding things together thingie... and wearing long hooded cloaks and weilding a light saber is cool.

Hey, question, didja catch my reply elsewhere with a link to a file for use in the DM brochure?

I tried opening it and it came up with the Quicktime symbol for about 20 seconds before cracking the symbol as failed download/corrupted file.

I'm not tech minded so I don't really know what it meant apart from the fact I couldn't access the file. Sorry :(

Hnh. Well, I know the file's OK, because I was able to download/view it from my site ... Did you try right-click-save-as instead of simply clicking it? Quicktime likes to try to view that stuff in-line in a browser, but yours might not be prepared to view an 8MB file.

That said, give me a couple minutes and I'll cook it down to a different format.

Fantasy Fact or Fiction
And they say Roleplayers can't distinguish fantasy from reality!!!!

so I turned to googlefight and told it to sort it out, here's the results:

Jedi 23,400,000

vs Christian 317,800,000 - Christian Wins!
vs Catholic 89,000,000 - Catholic Wins!
vs Muslim 64,000,000 - Muslim Wins!
vs Buddhist 31,600,000 - Buddhist Wins!
vs Protestant 18,300,000 - Jedi Wins!
vs Mormon 9,880,000 - Jedi Wins!
vs Scientologist 1,770,000 - Jedi Wins!
vs Seikh 44,000 - Jedi Wins!

As you can see totally scientific
