Re: Monister's Handbook submissions - Funerals

This project was inspired by the following quote from Aaron Freeman on NPR: You want a physicist to speak at your funeral. You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind ...

Re: The monisters handbook

Okay, I've posted a submissions thread for Weddings and Funerals. Have at.
Also, what other events should we try to cover?
Jail visitation?
Baptism?
Rites of passage (Bar mitsvah, et al)?
General weekly mass/gathering/strip club crawl/keel haul?

Re: The monisters handbook

Okay, so it sounds like we have at least a nice vocal minority. and we all seem to be on the same page. So, A la Loose Cannon style, I'm going to open up a couple of threads to cover some typical ceremonies.

Re: The monisters handbook

Exactly. But with a mind that not everything needs to be tongue in cheek with it, we could, no should, have at least one serious version of each of the ... rites? events? As well as a more light hearted pasta version or two.

Re: FSM Sightings on the Internet

Around the west coast of the US, Dubstep is kinda on the slide. It hit really big a couple years ago and completely took over big festivals like Burning man. But then it went into it's retro-unpopular bounceback phase, and now it's in it's post-cool, mainstream revival.
