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.

I was pleased to discover clear representations of the FSM in artwork all over The Royal Playa del Carmen resort on the coast of Mexico.
Physicists at CERN say they’ve found the Higgs Boson. Not surprising – illustrations of the “God Particle” closely resemble the FSM.
Below are two good articles about the discovery. Scientists seem to keeping a lid on the FSM connection, for now. Smart.
