Pastafarian Problem

Postby Gethsemane on Sat Jan 03, 2009 3:14 pm

Hi,
The reason I posted this was because I have a slight problem. I want to become a fellow pastafarian, but I'm afraid to display my piratic side in public. This is in fact my first post, and I just wondered if there was anybody out there who could help me adjust to the way of the FSM, and hopefully live amongst the powerful strands of His Noodly Appendages. Overall, I suppose the real question I want to ask is, how the hell do I become a pastafarian, without attracting the full attention of my whole village? Somehow I don't think it would go down too well if I suddenly walked down the street wearing full pirate regalia (I live in the countryside, and naturally, If you do so much as breathe, the whole village knows about it). Could I perhaps try to covert my village into FSM-ists?

Remember that you don't HAVE to dress like a pirate unless you're preaching the gospel. I think that you can safey DISCUSS rather than PREACH the word of the FSM while wearing anything you want. And i get it about the small-town thing. I graduated from a high school in a town of 315 people. Good luck. :)

Be sneaky and subtle <pronounces the "b" in subtle>. Make your own beer with the FSM on the label, and always refer to is as Holy Water.

Fuck.

Actually that IS one hell of an idea. Maybe i'll steal it. I was thinking of brewing my own beer and was trying to think of what to call it. "Pastafarian Pilsner" has a nice ring to it. What cut of the profits (if there are any) do you think you deserve for a "finders fee"? :)

I'm not greedy. I'd be happy as a clam with 5%, and if it stays a small time operation, I'd take it in beer. If you're anywhere near me, I'll help with the brewing and bottling. I even have a brewmiester friend just up the road. <completely absorbed in fantasy vision of self as the next Mr. Budweiser>

To be completely honest it'll probably remain a VERY small-time operation, and seeing as i'm still unemployed, there are precious few funds to start brewing again. I think that my gf's head would probably go off like a firecracker if i told her that i was buying new brewing equipment before finding a job. I have 2 bachelors degrees, 2 associates degrees, $50k in student laons and no job. :(

A couple of beers oughta do it.

If you have some kind of special recipe or something, I have a friend up the road who has a home brewing supply company. I bet we could get something going. Can you do up a cool label?

Not to mention that getting a Brewing operation off the ground takes around a year, at least, while you wait for the first batch. I don't really know about beer though. All of my research is in Mead.

Just a few weeks for small-scale beer brewing, from what I've seen. I'd imagine a honkin great operation would take some doing, though.
John and Patty's shop - it's been fixed up some - garage doors replaced with real walls, new storage room, etc.

This is their website. They used to have a video about brewing beer, but it seems to be gone now. Hope I don't get in trouble for posting it.

ET, we'll see what happens in the next few weeks with the job hunt, but i know what you mean about the "fantasy" personality thing. I had a friend get a job on community college radio and he fancied himself the next Howard Stern-style shock jock. Dumb.

Do not be afraid to show your piratic side. :worship: :fsm:
