Australian Population Census

Postby South Sea Pirate on Thu Aug 10, 2006 10:11 am

Ahoy Shipmates!!

The Australian Bureau just conducted a full population Census last Tuesday. Every Australian household is issued a form and asked to complete a series of questions pertaining to each member in the houshold at the time. It is actually compulsory in law to complete it. It is used to help Govt andagencies form policy and planning for all manner of things.

One question askes for you religion. I answered FSM of course!!!

I cant speak for any one else, but at least some tiny franction of the population should show up on the ABS system as FSM :fsm_yarr:

And some of us are young and our brains aren't developed enough to accept new things on the spot.

Haven't filled mine out yet, but I'm putting both Discordian and Pastafarian. There's no rule that states you can only be one religion is there?

I put my religion as Pastafarian, but like i said before my flatmates didn´t want to be connected to me so they made me fill out my own form.

Yay own form.

I put "The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster" too!!! I was going to post asking if anyone else had - I'm glad I'm not the only one! We can only hope others have been touched by His Noodly Appendage.

How'd you manage that? It's meant to be one form per household.

And yes - I put Discordian/Pastafarian in the religion bit.

You can request to have another form send to your household, if you are a very private person and don't want the people you live with to know anything about you... Well if that is the case, those people should live alone.

Never mind, the point is, yes you can get your own form if you so wished.
