At The Citadel in Quebec City. His noodley appendages spread pasta goodness to the Québécois.
I stumbled upon this microscopic effigy of the FSM. His Noodly Appendages are made of gold nanowires, 100 nm in diameter, and His Meatballs are silicon nanoparticles, ~1500 nanometers in diameter, coated with gold.

May you all be touched by His (tiny) Noodly Appendage.
PS – the description of the photo from the website:
Nano Spaghetti and Meatballs Colorized and overlaid scanning electron microscope images of Spaghetti and Meatballs made out of Au and Si. The ‘spaghetti’ is a collection of electrodeposited Au nanowires, 100 nm in diameter, that have released from the substrate and bundled together (Thomas Cornelius – GSI Darmstadt). The ‘meatballs’ are Si nanoparticles, ~1.5 um in diameter, with Au nanocrystals on the surface that were grown on carbon-coated substrates using ultra-high vacuum molecular beam epitaxy (Gunther Richter – MPI Stuttgart). These images highlight some of the many varied structures that can be formed at the nanoscale. (Image: Blythe G. Clark and Dan Gianola)
My coworker, Max, made the body on a lark using the paper shredder. Weeks later, His Noodly Appendage touched my heart and helped me decide that it should become an homage to the FSM. We began construction immediately and this was the end result. Bathed in the holy light of a desk lamp.
And He has the best seat in the house.
Nate, I think you might be right, but can we be sure this is the FSM, and not a Pastafarian evangelizing with athletic tape? I will watch more beach volleyball to investigate. For science.
[Spotted on Boston’s The Big Picture]
During lunch break on Sunday April 15th at the Global Atheist Convention in Melbourne, a group of 20 or so courageous Muslim extremists gathered in front of the convention center filled with 4000 Atheist unbelievers. They were quickly joined by two Pastafarians and shoulder to shoulder they demonstrated against those ignorant Atheists who do not understand Creation nor fear God. Islam and Flying Spaghetti Monsterism have the same core beliefs in common; we believe (and truly know) that the universe and all living beings were created by a deity and a Prophet spoke in His name. We just have different opinions about the name of that god and Prophet and also treat our wenches slightly differently. Apart from that, Islam and Pastafarianism: Same struggle!
In the attached pictures you will see the Muslims demonstrating in full Islamic regalia together with Pastafarians in colander head gear holding up the Gospel and a fresh pack of Spaghetti. On the windows in the background you might see the reflection of a Pirate Ship. Coincidence??
Pesto be upon all Believers,
Jerry from VectorGeek made us some FSM money. Beautiful work! What should we do with it?
My first thought is something like those propaganda tracts that when folded appear to be folded money but then you open it and see instead it’s a message how you can be saved. Like these:
Obnoxious, yes, but we’ll be doing it in the spirit of polite mockery, so it feels ok to me. Let’s, please, not leave them as pretend-tips at restaurants.
Good idea or no? Any other ideas?
