To "Dr." Otis Lansa

Esteemed Pasta Person, your "funny" DNA double helix displays a profound ignorance that should sadden all thinking people.

Your top row is four and one half links across.
The next row is five and one half links plus another quarter link.
The bottom link is but three and one half links.

Real DNA, as anyone the slightest bit familiar with biology knows, has two polypeptide links. Purine bases are adenine and guanine, while pyramidine bases are cytosine and guanine.

Come, let us reason together, and not promote such silliness as the excessive linkages and half-linkages "Dr." Otis Lansa portrays.

Look. If you want to be rude and trollish for your entire stay here, which, I warn you, will most likely not be long, you have to understand us, and provide reasoned and justified arguments. You won't get anywhere being a belligerent jackass.

If you want to point out logical fallacies in someone's avatar, which is quite often not intended to be serious, be prepared to be disappointed. Nobody cares.

And, might I ask, are you insinuating by saying "Slack that you never ever cut those FSM worshippers, eh wot?"
If you mean we do not cut the newcomers any slack, you have been sorely misinformed. We welcome the converts, give them some spreading room, and encourage them, unless they appear to be like you, which we get a few of, we quite like them. When I joined, I immediately noticed the friendly inner nature of the place, so difficult to find on the internet. So, if you want the other side of the internet, please, the door is that way.

I realise that you will likely quote some debate from another part of the board, where there is some argument going on. The thing is: We like to argue with each other. If we all cared so much about hating one another, and everything else, as you would have us believe, none of us would be here.
We're like a very large extended family. Sure, we get into arguments from time to time, but we like it here.

I apologise to all new converts for this extended post, and welcome you to our domain. Please, take a seat, a bowl of pasta, slip on your eye patch and enjoy yourselves.
A flap of the wings yesterday means big changes tomorrow.
Let's work together to keep the present inevitable.

So yeah, I went and got a blog.

Shouldn't all thinking people have already been saddened long before this?

What happens after 30 days? Your soul belongs to the FSM for all eternity and any move towards apostasy is punished with fire and brimstone and strangulation by a noodly appendage??

After 30 days you’re condemned to suffer eternity in the FSM version of Heaven, complete with Beer Volcanoes and Stripper Factories.

Oh... that's not so bad, I guess... but eternity is a loooooooooooong fucking time! Still as long as you don't get a beer gut for all eternity and you can still "get it up" for all eternity I think I'll subscribe!
So, even if I renege on the FSM I still get the Beer and Strippers? I mean that's like getting your money back AND keeping the goods! What other religion can boast as much??

OK, I'm not a new convert to Pastfarianism, but I am newly registered to the forums. And my profuse apologies, but this is not my first posting... I did post a couple of other places first. That's because, although I saw this thread referenced in a couple of places, I could not actually figure out where in the forum structure it actually was! Anyway, now that I've found the thread, here's my post. I promise to flagellate myself with a wet noodle as penance.

No need to flagellate yourself (unless you're like the emotionally warped missionaries quoted by by Scott the Pirate who get off on that sort of thing!)
Scott the Pirate quoting Desmond Morris wrote:"It is clear from scanning the pages of this ancient work (the Kama Sutra) that before the repressive prudery of the West was imposed on other cultures by mentally warped priests and emotionally crippled missionaries, uninhibited sexual joy was encouraged in both sexes."
I don't think think the FSM would approve of willful flagellations in his holy name. He'd much rather you ate the pasta... but if you can think of something sexy to do with it... go ahead and report back to us if you like!
No need to apologise for not obeying the rules either... where I come from we say "rules are made to be broken". This is not my first posting either.. by no means!
PS is that a Cormorant in your atavar pic... or a deformed vampire bat.... or a melted rubber welly-boot?

You're close with the Cormorant... it's actually an anhinga, which I've long felt was an excellent counterexample to the concept of intelligent design... I mean, what kind of intelligent designer would design a water bird that's not waterproof? But I suppose that is more a topic for the serious discussion-evolution vs. ID thread.

btw, I have a shop in CafePress with that image, with commentary: http://www.cafepress.com/soggyanhinga/
