[edit] Donations

I have a career pretty similar to your former one. How much do I need to donate to become an administrator? 86.150.30.172 09:55, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

See WP:SYSOP. Donations have nothing to do with it -- lucid 09:58, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
All cheques payable to me... -- Deskana (apples) 11:04, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

The above comments and the one on my messages are not helpful. Surely it would be reasonable to give special privileges to donors. Naturally I see an arguement for greater scruitiny of the inexperienced, but a donation to Wikipedia can be as great a contribution as that of an editor. 86.150.30.172 12:23, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Adminship isn't a reward for contributing to Wikipedia. It is a tool. -- lucid 12:49, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
So why can't I have that tool? 86.150.30.172 13:28, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
Also, adminship is entrusted by the community to editors whom the community knows well. Editing from an IP address won't get you there (not to mention an IP can't be sysoped). I'd suggest that you create an account as a first step if you'd like to become an admin. Just edit for a long time; make solid, productive edits until you've impacted the community enough to be sysoped. But that shouldn't be your goal; your goal should be the project - making Wikipedia the best repository of human knowledge on the planet.

Surely a substantial donation to the community should be enough? Why do I have to be "known well"? 86.150.30.172 13:28, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
Substitute "well known" for "widely recognised as a good contributor", one who is considered unlikely - based on observation - to use the extra tools available to disrupt Wikipedia. This is important since the tools available for admins can do a great more damage than those used for general editing. Donating a considerable amount of money only indicates that you have a considerable amount of money available for donation, and not how well you would carry out the work of an admin.

Which is sort of like trying to make the sun the biggest thing in the solar system -- lucid 13:01, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
Point granted.  :-) [[wp:User:David"><span style="color:green|=David</span>]]( [[wp:User_talk:David"><span style="color:orange|talk</span>]])( [[wp:Special:Contributions/David"><span style="color:orange|contribs</span>]]) 13:07, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Note: I now have an account. Euriboring 13:36, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

wp:WP:RFA is the only way you're going to get sysop rights, and without a lot more contributions behind your account, your RfA will fail. Adminship is a set of tools that let you help Wikipedia more, and without a need or use for those tools, you will not be granted them. -- Deskana (apples) 13:40, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
(*cough* The RfA page says, "The community grants administrator status to trusted users, so nominees should have been on Wikipedia long enough for people to determine whether they are trustworthy..." and nothing about the need for the tools - which is often an area of contention in the various discussions.) LessHeard vanU 14:40, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
Semantics. This user would not be granted adminship, and you are as aware of this as me. -- Deskana (apples) 14:41, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
"Semantics", indeed, as regards this editor (now rightly indefblocked by you) but not perhaps in discussions involving legitimate candidates. Just general principles for those unfamiliar with sysop criteria - hence my decision to remark in smaller type. LessHeard vanU 14:54, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
The Henry Root Letters are much funnier. -- Hoary 13:58, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
If you become an admin, it means you have a few special tools. You use the tools to fight abuse and clear backlogs. You need to know policy to use the tools well. -- Kaypoh 15:05, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
The user in question is now blocked. [[wp:User:David"><span style="color:green|=David</span>]]( [[wp:User_talk:David"><span style="color:orange|talk</span>]])( [[wp:Special:Contributions/David"><span style="color:orange|contribs</span>]]) 15:07, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

Despite being wrong, the idea that adminship is a reward for contributing to Wikipedia seems to be common, especially among newcomers. A.Z. 23:51, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

[edit] A sad day for Wikipedia

I would like to propose a minute's silence to mark the death of BJAODN, after a long and painful illness. Those of us who mourn its passing can take comfort in the thought that it is now amusing the angels in Wiki-heaven. Gandalf61 16:17, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

I came here to propose the same thing. But then I thought, "It's a wiki; it doesn't make noise anyway", so silence doesn't make sense. Maybe we can get the admin's to lock the database against editing for one minute tomorrow at 12:11 Wikipedia time — exactly 24 hours after BJAODN ceased to be. — DragonHawk ( talk"> hist) 17:08, 23 August 2007 (UTC)
I'm very glad no one went through with that. I just found out an acquaintance was dead a few hours ago, and equating the deletion of a vandalism database to someone's death is completely inappropriate. Atropos 09:46, 25 August 2007 (UTC)
Nobody is suggesting the end of BJAODN is as bad as the death of a real person. Nobody is even comparing the relative sadness of the end of BJAODN to anything at all. All we're suggesting that the end of BJAODN is a sad thing. That doesn't mean that it is the saddest thing ever. — DragonHawk ( talk"> hist) 12:11, 27 August 2007 (UTC)
"[A] moment of silence is often a gesture of respect, particularly in mourning for those who have recently died or as part of a commemoration ceremony of a tragic historical event." Saying that the deletion of a page full of bad jokes deserves a moment of silence is nothing but comparing it to someone's death or an actually tragic event. This is completely inappropriate. Atropos 08:46, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
Speaking as someone who has some experience of deceased relatives and friends, I'm afraid death is something we must all learn to live with. It is a fact of life for all of us. And as with all facts of life (the more so, unpleasant ones) humour is made of it. Indeed humour may be a way of dealing with life's unpleasant aspects. And when humour is made of an unpleasant subject (whether death, or anything else) then there are bound to be those in the 'audience' who have recently been affected by such an occurence. Some may be offended by it, but one cannot place a ban on humour for fear of offending an individual. There are individuals who will be offended by even the most (to an average person) innocuous subject. Wikipedia is about human perception of the world in which we live, and, for-better-or-for-worse, humour is part of that world. -- JohnArmagh 09:35, 28 August 2007 (UTC)
The keywords there are "often" and "particularly". The comparison is not intrinsic to anything proposed here. You're bringing your own baggage to the party. That's understandable; you're grieving. But if this discussion is causing you new pain, I'd suggest (with respect, and in all seriousness) you stop coming back for more. — DragonHawk ( talk"> hist) 02:24, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
We're not talking about "my pain" here, we're talking about how absolutely absurd it is that you want to mourn over the deletion of a list of bad jokes. It was a useless annoying distraction to writing an encyclopedia. Atropos 03:59, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
Well, sorry, but I do feel Wikipedia is diminished by the deletion of BJAODN, and dismissing my feelings as "absolutely absurd" is hurtful and not at all constructive. But I guess having emotions such as humour, sadness and empathy is an annoying distraction to the all-important task of writing an encyclopedia. Gandalf61 13:00, 30 August 2007 (UTC)
I never understood the argument that we need to have some fun. You know, we're not just robots, we can't work all the time. Writing an encyclopedia is fun. If you don't think its fun, why are you doing it? Atropos 23:45, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] From 32 pickup

[edit] Definition & history

32 Pickup (sometimes known as "32PU") is an unorthodox and unofficial manoeuvre designed to interrupt a game of chess before it reaches one of the standard outcomes - checkmate, stalemate or a draw. 32 Pickup derives its name from the number of pieces or chessmen involved at the outset of a game. The manoeuvre is closely related to (and possibly derived from) a similarly named card prank - 52 Pickup.

[edit] 32 Pickup as a tactic

Typically undertaken by a player facing an imminent checkmate (although the manoeuvre may be motivated by frustration or boredom), 32 Pickup involves the sudden and unexpected moving of the chessboard with sufficient force to dislodge remaining chessman in play permanently from their legal squares. This action, particularly where players have not recorded their moves using a form of chess notation, is usually sufficiently disruptive to bring the game to a premature conclusion.

A simulated 32 Pickup

In most instances, 32 Pickup is actually a misnomer as although there are 32 chessman involved in a game, positions leading a player to instigate the manoeuvre may involve considerably less. In an extended endgame, this could be as little as 3. Thus, some players have been known to augment the initial displacement of the board with an auxiliary sweep of their arm dislodging the sidelined and captured chessmen also.

[edit] Legality & consequences

32 Pickup is not recognised in the FIDE rules of chess but could be considered a highly unsporting and in some cases, a provocative gesture. In extreme instances, particularly where triple-weighted Staunton chessmen are employed, potential injury could arise to players and spectators where the disruption creates speeding projectiles.

It is commonly accepted that the person initiating the manoeuvre would be disqualified from the game.

[edit] From Psychosomatic cancer

A block of cancer

Psychosomatic cancer is an illness which is caused by the acknowledgement of a doctor to a patient of that they have been infected with cancer. It has been recently discovered that unless one has been diagnosed with cancer, then it is impossible to have it. Once a doctor falsely prophisizes cancer within the fleshy body of another person, the illness becomes a fabrication and psychosomatic illness.

Cancer, quite simply does not exist. It is a myth, a fraud and a lie on behalf of doctors and governments to make money through desperate patients who pay for treatment, even if in this country it is free. Don't you see?

Me neither.

[edit] John Franklin

I think the author was well-intended, but notice that the result is a zombie governor:

Rear Admiral Sir John Franklin FRGS (April 15, 1786 – June 11, 1847) was a British Royal Navy officer and Arctic explorer who mapped almost two thirds of the northern coastline of North America and whose last expedition disappeared while attempting to chart and navigate a section of the Northwest Passage in the Canadian Arctic. The entire crew perished from starvation and exposure after Franklin died and the expedition's icebound ships were abandoned in desperation. Franklin also served as governor of Tasmania for several years.

[edit] From Dublin Jerome High School

Also "Eva Braun" (not her real name), the school's principal is a known satanist as well as a great follower of the Nazi party. She has many pictures of Hitler shown through out her office. Her bitch, "Adolf Hitler" (not his real name) has been caught masturbating in public on serveral occasions. "Declan Hague" (not his real name), the other bitch, has been arrested for child pornography, and cites "Twinks" as one of his favorite hobbies. "Eva Braun"'s nazi ways caused a great disruption in the school when she tried to assasinate 12 young mexican children, for refusing to do the nazi salute before a football game. Some point to "Eva Braun"'s originality as a hermaphrodite as a reason for her anger. She also has a history of refusing to meet with the parents of Jewish children, and once got on the announcements and said "Please tell your Kike parents i won't meet with them". Also, an investigation of "Adolf Hitler"'s raping of a school lunch lady is currently underway.

[edit] From Impulse control disorder

The newest of all the Impulse control disorders
is a disorder called "Compdiscalmania".
Compdisalmania is an unfortunate disorder where the victim continually
opens and closes a computer disk drive
until the computer can no longer operate.
The first person to ever be diagnosed with this disorder was Nathan...
nobody really knows how to spell his last name.
Nathan was in his school's computer classroom
when he started to open and close the disk drive
for what seemed to be no reason at all;
his computer broke and he and his family were charged
with seven hundred dollars worth of damage.
Nathan's family thought that this would never happen again,
but they were wrong.
Nathan broke two more computers before he was expelled from school.
Nathan was taken to his psychologist, Richard Gibson.
Dr. Gibson Diagnosed Nathan's problem as
"Compdiscalmania".
This Disorder started with Nathan,
but it has become very common in the modern world.
Children with ADHD, ADD, or Hyperactivity are at a very high risk
of developing this disorder. In a recent interview Dr. Gibson stated,
"I believe that this disorder is much more
dangerous than we think.
If we don't find a treatment soon,
these people could start pushing every button
and pulling every lever that they can find.
As you can all probably imagine,
this could make simple tasks like operating a vehicle,
using a computer,
or working a cash register next to impossible for these people."

and how you can join the fight against it, go to www.compdiscalmania.org.

[edit] From Jingle Cats

The Jingle Cats did one live performance in their long tenure. Unfortunately P.E.T.A. immediately put a stop to it because of the harsh conditions under which they were forced to perform. The Maestro imployed a collection of shock collars which caused the cats to meow at his will. The never before attempted performance was going swimmingly until the lead alto, Mittens, burst into flames due to mechanical failure of his shock collar during the crescendo of their cover of "The Final Countdown" made famous by 80's hair band Europe. After the controversial live performance and the untimely, violent death of Mittens, the band was dealt another blow. Snowball, the group's lead sopranno, was so devasteted by Mittens' catastrophic combustion that he the left the Jingle Cats in order to pursue a solo career in Memphis. With the loss of their lead alto and unexpected departure of Snowball the Jingle Cats were forced to break up. Months later, the group's attempted comeback was put to a early halt when news of Fluffy's excessive catnip use went public. On a now famous YouTube clip, an apparently catnip-crazed fluffy can be seen harrassing numerous female cats and screaming racial obscenities. This was a public relations nightmare for the group, as their main audience was young children. Although most will only remember their final months which included death, dishonor, and drug abuse, the Jingle Cats unique sound will surely be remembered in music history as being on par with The Beatles, Nirvana, and Led Zeppelin.

[edit] From Tomato itchies

Tomatoes can cause uncomfortable rashes and/or dry skin in those who are sensitive to high consumption of them.

[edit] Definition

The tomato itchies can be defined as a rash or dry skin affliction caused by the consumption of too many tomatoes for the body to handle.

[edit] What's that?

The tomato itchies is the term used by many children's pediatricians to name this affliction. Mostly occuring in smaller children, the affliction is caused by eating too many tomatoes. Those sensitive to the fruit begin to get dry, itchy skin and, in more severe cases, rashes. There is really no cure for this, as it is not an actual disease itself, and it does not negatively affect your overall health. The itchy symptoms will go away on their own if the patient consumes smaller amounts of tomatoes. If, for some odd reason, this is not possible, hand or anti-itch cream can be applied to the itchy areas. Anti-inflammatory pills are not recommended, but can be used in cases of high levels of discomfort.

[edit] Long-Term Effects

There are, fortunately, no known long term effects of the "tomato itchies." Besides discomfort, this doesn't really affect your health all that much.

[edit] From Pasta brownie

Found almost exclusively in Columbia, SC, this dish is a favorite among many who live there, and was created by accident during an unlikely kitchen mishap. On a bleak December evening in 1933, two chefs at Martin's Restaurant were trying to prepare several meals at once during the dinner rush. Being the heart of the depression, times were tough, and the restaurant owners had to struggle each day just to make ends meet. As a result, space in the kitchen was extremely limited, which led to frequent altercations between chefs vying for counter space and time at the stove.

On this particular evening, one chef was trying to put the finishing touches on a brownie dessert, while another was in the process of preparing a lasagna dish. This eventually led to a physical confrontation, at which time the brownie was knocked up in the air and landed on top of the lasagna. Neither chef noticed until it was too late, and much to their surprise, the customer who was expecting a simple lasagna dinner received a most welcome treat.

Word quickly spread of the restaurant's new creation, and almost immediately their customer base tripled. The dish was hailed by an unnamed local critic as "a single bright spot during this, one of the worst times in American history." Other variations appeared, including pasta brownies based on spaghetti, ravioli, and cannelloni. The original lasagna version is considered by many to be the only "true" way to prepare the dish, much as Neapolitan style is considered by many to be the truest form of pizza.

[edit] From Winston churchill (sexual postion)

Winston Churchill is a sexual position found in Uncle Ernie's Big Book of Banging Positions. It occurs when a person (female preferred) performs oral sex on a member or members of a government position, in most cases the president, or highest ranked official, in order to end a political or social conflict such as War.

[edit] History

Origins: 1944–1945

The origins of the Winston Churchill or "Churchy" as it is referred to by youth culture started near the end of 1944, closing in on the end of World War II. Prime Minister of England Winston Churchill suffered severe anxiety and stress from the pressure the War was on his health. He was quoted as saying, "Goddamnit I need a bloody service done to me I feel like I need a good wank." Just then his secretary Mary Splendshine walked into his office, sat Churchill down and "did the deed". She performed oral sex on him and continued this act everyday until the end of the war. Churchill's decisive moves he made and this critical actions he did to end the war was attributed to these political blowjobs. These services she performed always happened at 6:54 P.M. When adding the 5 and the 4 the time reads 69.

[edit] Other Incidents

Many other conflicts such as the Cuban Missile Crisis and The Gulf War ended in result of the Winston Churchill. President John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton received daily "Churchies", which helped them end their respected conflicts.

[edit] From Dipping Tobacco (NSFW)

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Dipping_tobacco&diff=167916804&oldid=167911141]

"There is a common misconception among dip users. Most users believe that between the lip and teeth is the best. However, for the biggest buzz, the dip must be inserted into your dickhole. This can be accomplished by first placing the dip at the tip of your penis. Then you take a hanger and stretch it out so it is straight. You take the hanger and plow the dip deep within your shaft. No spitter is necessary, cumming will do the trick."

I have a way to make fairy houses. This is a great thing for children, especially if you live in the mountains. 1, Find some sticks. 2, Make mud. 3, Sculpt mud into the shape of the house. 4, Lay sticks around the house to make walls. 5, Let it dry. 6, Next day, see if it is dry. 7, Build the next layer. 8, Keep repeating steps 6 and 7. 9, To make the roof, layer more sticks on top of the house. 10, Put mud on top of sticks. 11, Find something to be a fairy, the you're done!

[edit] From International Academy

From a series of old edits ranging from May to September 2005:

This is where the gangsters are at. Word to your mother.

The IA was founded in 1996 by Bert Okma, a well-known homosexual, communist sypmathizer and porn star. Okma was arrested in 2005 for engaging in sexual intercourse with a donkey. Okma came out of the closet last year. He likes to have dirty anal sex with farm animals. He was also reported to have fucked his mother, his daughter, the family horse and a goldfish. The event was video taped and passed around the school, much to Okma's dismay. Okma's past times include butt-fucking, gay sex, anal-sex, eating feces, wiping feces on his body, giving oral sex to men and horses, raping small children, fucking dogs and public masterbation during school hours. He is also rumored to be a cannibal.

Future US president Alexander Chernyak graduated from the school in 2006. He has been quoted as saying "Didn't do a damn thing for me."

the IA is home to the guerilla unit 69ers, the robotics team. it has been criticized for only allowing gay memebers, and has taken part in the annual homo robot games.

The IA was founded in 1996 by Lambert Okma, who is notable for many things, most importantly for being arrested in Gaylord in 1993 for being caught having sex with a donkey. He is currently undergoing surgery to become a full human being, since he is really half-ape.

The International Academy also has many notable students. Thomas Shui, Class of 2008, is currently up for the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for creating a drug that can make anyone in the world fall asleep, anywhere and anytime, no matter how much excitement is going around them. Another member of the Class of '08, Vanjula Talagala, has the highest I.Q. the world has ever seen (247), beating the record set by former IA student Griffin McMath. Trever Sims has also won a Pulitzer Prize in literature for his amazing critique of Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men.

[edit] From 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd

Even long time viewers were unimpressed with the show's obvious and incredibly offensive attempt to get renewed for years to come in it's last episode ("Hail to the Beef") by having Eddie required to do an additional one hundred deeds for "what he did to the neighbor's poodle, Jacque."

[edit] From .yu to .me

With the breakup of (what's left of) Yugoslavia, the corresponding Internet country code is also being split. So what would Montenegro do if they were .me?

Dunno, but the Wikipedian result so far (in articles and talkpages for the affected codes), while not necessarily nonsense or deleted, is overflowing with key facts like:

  • .me is active!
  • Take a look at .me
  • .yu will be replaced by .me
  • All domains under .me are reserved for legal entities
  • See also .rs and .me, the ccTLD pair which are to replace .yu
  • This allows a two-year transition period for existing .yu names to be transferred to .me
  • Open registration for .me is not yet available but domain name servers do locate .me
  • They know they'll never get rid of .yu;
  • There's no problem with .me, of course.

And yes, there's even an .its.me (for real - so don't blame .me!) as a domain name for Montenegrin personal sites. The slogan? ".me is about YOU!" :)

[edit] From Wikistupidity

Wikipedia is a WikiWiki, which means that anyone can easily edit any unprotected article and have those changes posted immediately to that page.
Editing a Wiki page is very easy. Simply click on the "edit this page" tab at the top (or the edit link on the right or bottom) of a Wiki page. This will bring you to a page with a text box containing the editable text of that page***"
ALL means that you don't have to be all too very smart to edit, write, or delete. In fact you don't have to smart at all as such the word that best describes that which follows Wikipedia guidelines in form without substance is called Wikistupidity as not only is it intolerantly pompous arrogant pretentious and completely callous in a bureaucratic sense it is also stupid and wikified so combining the two words we get the conjunction of WIKI-STUPIDITY. [5]]

(Fine, except that Wikipedia is a MediaWiki - not a WikiWiki. Sheesh.)

[edit] From Mr. Nonsense and Mr. Silly

Mr. Nonsense lives in Nonsenseland, in a house on top of a tree. When asked why he sleeps in a rowing boat, the answer is "I tried sleeping in a motorboat and it was somewhat uncomfortable." When asked why he eats porridge on toast, the answer is, "I tried porridge sandwiches and I didn't like them." Mr. Nonsense is best friends with Mr. Silly, and when it snows yellow snow, they go for a toboggan in Mr. Nonsense's rowing boat bed. They build square snowballs. Then when they want to play draughts, Mr. Nonsense and Mr. Silly open all the doors and windows.

Actually a description of a real children's book, although it sounds like a lot of the material which ends up on BJAODN.

[edit] From Sleeper effect

See the self-referencing last line :)

The sleeper effect identified by psychologist Carl Hovland refers to the "hidden" effect of a propaganda message even when it comes from a discredible source.

Hovland studied the effects of the Frank Capra World War II propaganda film series Why We Fight on US soldiers. He found that when the soldiers found the source of a piece of information discredible, they would discount it. However, after an amount of time soldiers would forget where a given message originated, but they would still remember the message itself. In this way, information from a low credibility source could increase in effectiveness.

...

However, note that the sleeper effect has had something of a chequered history since its original conception. The effect is not considered nearly as strong or reliable as once thought, and much of the original research on the effect is no longer cited in support of its existence. But that's okay, because in a few weeks, all you'll remember is the basic idea, without the source.

[edit] World of Warcraft dependency

World of Warcraft dependency is a dependency of epic proportions, and leads to symptoms such as having no life, decline of social acceptance, and obesity. Addiction can be almost instantaneous; once you start, you never stop.

World of Warcraft dependence is not limited to the time in front of a computer. The good thing about World of Warcraft dependency is it is easy to diagnose and treat. To diagnose, try and look for one or two things in the person; first one being obsessive talking about World of Warcraft, or gaining immense amounts of weight in a short amount of time. Video Game

[edit] From Janicism

Content added by User:Ichbinbored, User:Mlc409, User:80.47.56.21

Fireworks at a Janicist Festival

[edit] Introduction

Janicism is a religion that originated on the European subcontinent in the UK. Janicism encompasses many religious beliefs, practices, and denominations. Most Janicists believe in a supreme cosmic spirit called Janice that is worshipped in many forms (under the Parable of Reed). Janicism centres around a variety of practices that are meant to help one experience the divinity of books that is everywhere and realise the true literary nature of the world.

[edit] Important Individuals

The individuals below are in order of importance, although they are all equal as one.

Individual Position
Janice The One True God
Major Reeder The Primary Prophet
Edwina The Prophet of Nutrition
Alfredo The Prophet of Geometry
Gerry The Prophet of Anatomy
Chief Janni Gateway to the Library
Janicist One who Believes
Plebiscite One who Does Not Believe
Underling/Prefect A lesser being, an assistant

[edit] Janicist Beliefs

The main belief of Janicists is that they are all created on equal terms with the rest of the Universe.

[edit] The Afterlife

Janicists believe that when they die, they are taken to the "Library in the Sky" (colloquial term used to describe Janicist Heaven). Every living being has a book written about them, and what deeds they have performed during their life. This is documented in the book "Mort", by Terry Pratchett, however the fundamental beliefs surrounding this are different to those of Janicists (who follow the Parable of Reed). Their book is examined by Major Reeder, and depending on whether their deeds have been good or bad they will be resurrected as either a higher being (such as a vegetable, see below) or a lower being (for example, they will be put in charge of writing somebody else's book in their occupation as an Underling - otherwise known as a Prefect).

File:Balance scale.jpg
A symbol of equality

[edit] Equality

In Jancicism, everything is considered equal, however everything has its own place in society. For example, animals are treated the same as humans would ideally be treated themselves, and have the same rights as humans. Certain vegetables are revered, while others are not (see Vegetables below). Janice, Major Reeder, the Chief Jannis and Janicists are all treated equally, however the Chief Jannis (singular form Janni) act as links to Janice (the One True God), while Major Reeder assists in cataloguing books (known as biographies).


File:Vegetable market.jpg
Vegetables in a Market

[edit] Vegetables

Certain vegetables hold special status in the Janicist society, while others are not. The Four Bookshelves of Janicism are made up of Carrots, Aubergines, Apples and Pumpkins and these vegetables are given the maximum amount of respect. They are only used and eaten on special occasions (see below). Other vegetables, such as broccoli and sweetcorn are never given capital letters in their names and should never be consumed as they are seen to be satanic and against the laws of Janicism. Mushrooms that have grown in low places must not be consumed. It is seen by Janicists as lowering yourself if you do.

Overall, however, all vegetables should be eaten in moderation. This is because their cell walls contain cellulose, which human beings cannot digest. Obviously, this is a sign that they are not supposed to be eaten and this is why they are given so much respect.

Naturally, vegetables are treated differently to fruit. The eating of fruit is not encouraged, as in the original Parable of Reed Anthoneus was banned from the library for eating an item of fruit there.

File:VariousPills.JPG
Drugs are allowed in Janicist society.

[edit] Attitude towards Drugs, Alcohol and Other Intoxicating Substances

Janicists believe that you should be free to live your life as you wish. Therefore, the use of intoxicating substances, illegal or otherwise, is allowed. However, this is subject to the discretion of the user. National and international laws also have to be respected in this sense, so intoxicating substances may be banned in certain countries. Janicists should always respect international law, even if they seem to be unfair, as laws are designed to promote equality and they should only be used in this way.

Animal reproduction is accepted.

[edit] Attitude towards Sexual Relations, Marriage and Adultery

In Janicism, everybody is equal. Therefore, an individual may engage in sexual relations with any other species as long as all of their partners are treated equally. Marriage is not compulsory. Necrophilia is not widely encouraged, but Gerry, the Prophet of Anatomy, does not actively disallow this.

Adultery is seen as unacceptable in other religions, and also sinful, however Janicists believe that as long as all partners are treated equally, adultery is acceptable. Also, if Janicists believe otherwise to this they are free to decide which parts of the religion they would like to follow, and which they would not.

A festival

[edit] Special Occasions and Festivals

Janicism teaches that festivals should take place wherever possible, so that people can increase their number of good deeds and be resurrected as a higher being (such as a Chief Yanni or a Carrot). Some of these festivals and special occasions are mentioned below.

thumbThe Burning of the Books

[edit] Burning of the Books

File:Janicism article.jpg
A newspaper article about a Janicist festival

The Burning of the Books is an international festival in which people burn large quantities of books. This represents people burning away their bad deeds and starting a new life (or a new book). This is linked to resurrection and higher or lower beings, and many Janicists believe that their good deeds are being burned as well as the bad deeds - so they have to perform many good deeds afterwards in order to rewrite their books in a good way. The burning is followed by dancing, drinking and eating as these are all encouraged at special occasions such as the Burning.

When a baby is born, a Chief Janni comes to the family with a basket of freshly cultivated, assorted vegetables. He touches the baby's head with the vegetables, and the family then rejoice in the fact that a new baby has entered the community. They then eat the vegetables.

Deletion discussion on the above from [20]]:

The result was Speedy Delete. I have no doubt that I'm asking for an ass-kicking here, but this entire article reeks of self-promotional material if it actually exists, or a hoax if it doesn't (which... makes a lot of sense). There's absolutely no reason to let this farce of an AfD continue; a handful of people (possibly even one) are the ones campaigning for its continued existence, and the strongest piece of evidence (the scanned newspaper article) is one of the most heavily photoshopped images I've ever seen. Between suspect sockpuppets, a dubious level of notability, and an unreliable primary source, I don't feel that this article should be on Wikipedia. If this is a real religion (seems to be a bit of a debate about that, but that's neither here nor there), an article can be written at a later date at such a time as the movement is actually notable. That time is not now. EVula <span style="color: #366;|☯]] //</span> 01:57, 4 December 2006 (UTC)

Janicism (Template:La, Template:Afdanons)

Janicism is a factual article. All things start off small, and Janicism wont expand suddenly overnight. The fact is, Janicism is a real religion. There are people who follow it, and therefore I maintain they have a right to have it documented on Wikipedia, which is why I wrote the article (which has since been expanded by a fellow practicing Janicist, showing it is not false.) I strongly believe that this article should be upheld in the public view. Mlc409 10:19, 2 December 2006 (UTC) — Mlc409 ( talk • contribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

Janicism is a real religion, but these things cannot simply turn up overnight. We have slowly been expanding our religion over many months, and have decided to write an article to try to reach out to more people. Janicism is definitely not made up, as some of its views are documented in books - see "Mort" by Terry Pratchett, as seen in the article. Do not delete. Ichbinbored 10:23, 2 December 2006 (UTC) — Ichbinbored ( talk • contribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

Actually, the article doesn't state that "Mort" documents this religion. When refering to books being written about people after their deaths: This is documented in the book "Mort", by Terry Pratchett, however the fundamental beliefs surrounding this are different to those of Janicists (who follow the Parable of Reed). All that means is that "Mort" mentioned the idea of people having books written about their life activities, it doesn't mean that "Mort" in any way referenced "Janicism".

Read the page, it says "An article about Our fundamental beliefs is being compiled, and should be completed towards the end of 2006." Being compiled means it is being made. It was posted today when we completed it. Obviously, so she wouldn't have to update the page later, she put a link there so it would be ready when it was completed. Ichbinbored 11:39, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
My point is that if I write a webpage saying, "I am going to write an article about X and put it on Wikipedia", that blog is not external evidence of the existence of X when I come to justify the Wikipedia article. WJBscribe 11:44, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
I agree with this, but it surely must help. Ichbinbored 11:49, 2 December 2006 (UTC)
In what way must it help? In order to show notability, you'll need reliable independent sources. Currently, the two sources cited are a blog with some funny entry timestamps and a website which says (as WJBscribe so aptly puts it), "I'm going to write an article about X and put it on Wikipedia". Leaving aside the blog, in what way is the website independent of the religion? That's the crux of the matter for me at the moment - when independent and reliable sources start talking about this religion, it becomes notable. It doesn't turn up here in order for independent and reliable sources to start talking about it. BigHaz - Schreit mich an 11:58, 2 December 2006 (UTC)

Can I ask what you would consider to be proof? Every source we find you manage to establish a way of making it illegitimate. Even if it's not. Annoying. If we didn't feel so strongly about our beliefs then we would probably give up as we feel very much ganged up against. The fact is this: JANICISM EXISTS. Regardless of how many people follow it. We follow it. We believe in it. Therefore it should be documented on Wikipedia. This is how I see it. mlc409 — user:mlc409 ( talk • contribs) has made few or no other edits outside this topic.

The sort of proof we are looking for is explained at RS.

Afraid not, worshipping your cat is quite different from an article on a religion. I should clarify that the ichbinbored name is one used by the user generically.

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia. We're glad to have you. However, perhaps you would like to familiarize yourself with part of the rules, as per V. As a matter of fact, several of us did do a google search, and were unable to come up with anything. Another rule is NOTE, and (I'm sorry to say), in this case, NFT. Just because something is made up by a small group of people does not make it notable enough for inclusion. If it had a following of even a thousand followers worldwide, it would probably be notable for inclusion.

  • Comment I actually find it really abusive, and I think that others will do so too, that you are calling this religion "bollocks". Would you like to go on to the Islam and Christianity pages and tell them that their religion is "bollocks"? Even if Janicism is a minority religion, it still exists, and we should not have to put up with this level of abuse. 80.47.11.236 09:48, 3 December 2006 (UTC) Template:Spa
  • With respect, that's a false argument. Islam and Christianity (and a myriad of other religions, denominations, sects and cults) have attracted newspaper and/or scholarly coverage. Therefore, not only do we know that they exist, they're eminently notable. Janicism, on the other hand, has a dicey-looking blog, a website which says nothing more than "we exist", an apparently photoshopped newspaper article and an alleged YouTube video. The best that collection proves is that there is a relatively coherent group of people who call what they do by that name (and even then I have my doubts). There's no notability there, and there's precious little verifiability. If that were all we could find on an established world religion, I'd have no hesitation in deleting the article. BigHaz - Schreit mich an 10:07, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
  • And also I thought there were no votes. It says at the top that the editors decide not through counting heads. So why are you saying that they have been changed if they don't mean anything?

  • As far as the international recognition point goes, that's true enough. However, Wikipedia is an encyclopedia rather than a website about everything which exists. To use the hoary old chestnut, I exist (and in a nicely verifiable manner), but I don't get an article just because of winning the genetic lottery. If I want an article, I need to do something significant first. Likewise, were I to found a Satanic cult (an example plucked at random, although there are a lot of AfDs on these), said cult would also exist but remain obstinately non-notable until it had burned a church or two down or done something equally newsworthy. I'm willing to assume good faith and say that the religion exists, but it hasn't achieved noteworthiness yet. In terms of the "changing votes" thing, what was being referred to then was that certain accounts had actually altered what other people had said - changing a phrase such as "Delete this page, it is as noteworthy as the religion I've founded" to read "Keep this page, it is related to the religion I've founded" and so on. Pretending that people have said things that they hadn't is very bad form. BigHaz - Schreit mich an 10:23, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

I, for one, would like there to be at least two newspaper articles to start with - regardless of the size of the festivals they're talking about. Further, there is a considerable belief that the article was created with Photoshop.

You haven't actually said it before, but regardless of that, we only have your word that neither of you could afford it. I'm not saying that it has been photoshopped, although other users are saying that. I've sent a message to IrishGuy to see if he's heard back from the Chronicle's editor, which would clinch the matter of the veracity of the newspaper article once and for all. It still remains to be seen, however, whether that's enough to move this into notable territory. BigHaz - Schreit mich an 11:10, 3 December 2006 (UTC)

Wavy G 22:17, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
Affordability is a non-argument anyway. The term "Photoshopped" tends to get used as an umbrella term for all digital image manipulation, regardless of what software was actually used. There are plenty of cheap and even free image manipulation applications out there, and numerous other ways to achieve the same results.

Mlc409 didn't create the speedycuffs article]...an editor named Mawich did. In fact, his only edits to that article were to revert vandalism by the same IP that keeps showing up here...ten minutes after it happened so it's pretty clear he wasn't simply patrolling the recent changes.

mlc409 - I actually agree with you, looking at the quality of the image, the text and what not, I'd say your newspaper article was created using MS Paint. You still have not explained why your scan from the Oldham Evening Chronicle has a totally different typeface (Verdana if I'm not mistaken) to any other extract or scan on the internet.

I was informing you of Wikipedia policy, which is something you ignore when your article has one source, which is a poor quality scan of a newspaper article. It's not about whether the religion exists, it's if it's notable, and it obviously isn't. I think an article on myself has more notability than Janicism.

[edit] From Human Cheese

(archive.org] - wikidumper] - AfD- deletion log])

Human cheese is cheese produced from the breast milk of female humans. It has been proposed as a Vegan alternative to cheeses produced by other mammals, such as goats and cows.[1]

[edit] Economic issues

The production, labour costs, shipping, and other expenses involved in producing cheese from female humans would require the product to be sold at a relatively higher price than cheese produced by other mammals, at a rough estimate of 200 U.S. dollars per pound ($440/kg).[1]

[edit] Plausibility

The very existence of human cheese is unknown. There are currently no well-known documented cases of human cheese being produced. Human breast milk is on average 5% protein [2], which is a smaller concentration than that in both goat and cow cheese.[3] Because protein is necessary for milk to curdle, the low percentage of protein in human milk may prevent curdling from occurring.

Entrepreneur Lucy Cowell has made some small samples of cheese from her breast milk. Brother Tobias has found them to be tasty for recipes contact toby.cokes -at- gmail...

[edit] Statement of Jimmy Wales

March 1, 2008

Over the last few days, a few gossip websites have decided that my personal life is somehow of interest to people and, against my wishes, are publicizing details about a brief relationship I had with Rachel Marsden. While, typically, this would not warrant a response, because my role with Wikipedia is being dragged into it, I felt the need to set the record straight on a couple of issues.

First, while I find it hard to imagine that anyone really cares about my sex life, the facts are: I am separated from my wife. I considered myself single at the time of my one meeting with Rachel Marsden on February 9th, 2008. I am no longer involved with Rachel Marsden. Gossipy stories suggesting that I have been in a relationship with her "since last fall" are completely false.

The second, and far more important, issue is this false notion which is being peddled that I intervened inappropriately to redraft her Wikipedia biography. The facts are that, in Wikipedia, I work closely with a team called " OTRS," which handles email complaints and works hard to address concerns relating to the biographies of living persons. Rachel Marsden first approached me via email two years ago with complaints about her bio. We had never met. I subsequently reviewed her bio and I found it not to be up to our standards. My involvement in cases like this is completely routine, and I am proud of it.

I decided to meet Rachel Marsden in person for the first time in early February of this year. Accordingly, three days before that meeting, to avoid any appearance of a potential conflict of interest, I disclosed my plans to OTRS and further disclosed that it was a personal matter. I recused myself from any further official action with respect to her biography.

I care deeply about the integrity of Wikipedia, and take very seriously my responsibilities as a Member of the Board and as a member of the Wikipedia community. I would never knowingly do anything to compromise that trust.

[edit] Entering the Wikimatrix (aka Jimboworld)

As anyone who has ever cared about Jimbo here knows, the only way to have any sort of rational or caring discussion with him is in the Wikimatrix here. Alright, fine. Game on, sweetheart.

Newsflash: Wikipedia is not an encyclopedia; it is a cult. I wouldn't even be included in a real encyclopedia. I want the Wikipedia entry about me deleted. I don't know why this is such a difficult concept to accept. This is not a publishing company, nor is it some kind of altruistic venture for the greater good of humanity. Wikipedia is nothing more than the biggest and most prolific defamation machine that the world has ever known, run by people with varying degrees of personality disorders.

You couldn't have cared less about my Wikipedia entry until we started sleeping together, Jimmy. At that point, it was nicely cleaned up and taken care of through your proxies here on the site, as per your instructions (and it's not the first time an article has been cleaned up through a proxy, as per your orders...this kind of stuff, contrary to popular belief, doesn't just happen "magically" here on Wikipedia). Now that we're not sleeping together and since you so publicly broke up with my here on this website, the page about me has turned into a complete free-for-all. Are you aware, Jimmy, that "NPOV" (aka "Neutral Point Of View") is actually an oxymoron? By its very nature, a "point of view" cannot be "neutral".

Communism has failed everywhere it has been tried, Jimmy, and Wikipedia is no exception. As for you trying to make it seem as though your invisible hand isn't involved in any of this, perhaps it's wise for people to remember that the greatest feat the devil ever pulled off was convincing people that he doesn't exist. -- Rachel Marsden, posted to talkpage and reverted repeatedly [3][4][5][6] before eventually being cited here.

[edit] From Jimbo Wales

Jimmy Donal "Jimbo" Wales (born August 7, 1966, died December 12, 2005) was a U.S. Internet entrepreneur and a wiki pioneer who is best known as an original creator and leader of Wikipedia, an international collaborative free content encyclopedia on the Internet. He was shot at his home by a friend of John Seigenthaler yesterday.

[edit] Murder

At 18:54 EST on December 12, John Seigenthaler's wife, who was infuriated at Wikipedia regarding the recent scandal regarding his role in the Kennedy Assassination, came into the house, where Jim was having dinner. Wearing a mask, he shot him three times in the head and ran. ([37]], cited here] and here].)

On December 5, 2005, CNN featured an article] and video on Wikipedia concerning content regarding author John Seigenthaler Sr. that stated "more than 20 times, he killed Kennedy" regarding the murder of John F. Kennedy and his brother, Robert Kennedy, concluding with "murderering (expletive)." Wales offered that only small changes would be made to Wikipedia such as prohibiting anonymous authors from creating an article, which is what he attributed this recent problem to. However, in fact, Seigenthaler related in the video that existing processes within Wikipedia did not protect his reputation, as it took five months to get the article corrected. While Wales was prompt in his response, Seigenthaler related that his reputation was damaged in the interim and continued even after he'd been assured that it had been fixed through the availability of history files. He goes on to comment ( transcript) that Wikipedia's disclaimer is effectively a claim to unaccountability, and notes: "With accountability comes credibility, you know? And “Wikipedia is not accountable” ultimately means (the) marketplace will take care of Wikipedia." [38]]

[edit] I'm Not Michael D. Brown Former FEMA Director

ABOUT BEING MICHAEL BROWN G. not D.

I’m not Michael Brown, well, yes I am but I’m not THAT Michael Brown...oh man, what a mess. Ever since Hurricane Katrina my namesake (no relation) has given me quite a career hit. You see Michael D. (read Darn-it) Brown is a different person than me, Michael G. (read Good guy) Brown. Michael D. was the director of FEMA. I’m pretty sure he was asked to leave FEMA after the Katrina debacle. Michael G. (me) works for FEMA also but as an Urban Search and Rescue employee. We were both at Katrina; I was working as the Rescue Operations Chief (deputy) in the flooded streets of New Orleans. I’m not so sure where the other guy was, but I sure got blamed for being him a lot. And in spite of being part of some pretty awesome rescues in the name of FEMA, no one told me I was doing a heck a job Brownie! During a quick interview for the NBC nightly news on Interstate 610 in New Orleans, some brilliant producer decided my likeness was good enough to make me the FEMA director...see picture below. Imagine my excitement when millions of Americans suddenly realized the director of FEMA now personally directed US&R rescue operations! We were one in the same, apparently.

<see photo>

It was a complete field day after that. When D. left FEMA, the people that know me vaguely assumed I had finally goofed up my career beyond a reasonable doubt. I know: I have the ability to do it, I’ve seen me try, but not this time.

A couple of years ago my friends started sending me Mike Brown Sucks buttons. That Mike Brown is the General Manager of the Cincinnati Bengals NFL football team. It even has a website: www.mikebrownsucks.com. Two examples can’t quite qualify as a plethora, but in this case it’s too close for comfort.

To set the matter straight, I am Michael G. Brown, retired battalion chief from the Virginia Beach Fire Department, Task Force Leader of FEMA US&R Virginia Task Force-2 and Operations Chief (deputy) on IST-Blue. I’m the same guy that is on Fire Engineering Magazine’s board of Editorial Advisors and Contributing Editors. I work for a company called AMTI when I’m not on FEMA deployments, I wrote a book on rope rescue, I like little green apples and don’t like when it rains in Indianapolis in the spring time. So if we get a chance to see each other at the FDIC this year, please don’t confuse me with the other guy.

[edit] n00bjabi

N00bjabi is probably a cross between a n00b and a punjab. The name was created 5 years ago, and to this day no one is still sure of the actual meaning of it. n00bjabi.com was officially created on January 14th, 2005.

Before n00bjabi.com BECAME n00bjabi.com, it had an extensive history of no real significance.

August 13, 2004: n00bjabi creates an FTP server (using FileZilla), used to send files to his friends. (wp:ftp://67.171.2.238 ftp://67.171.2.238 was the official address)

August 22, 2004: an HTTP server is brought online (Apache 2.x), the IP address remains the same, but the server was viewed from an http:// url, instead of an ftp:// . It contained 1 word, 'gaggle', followed by a horizontal rule.

September 14, 2004: n00bjabi.tk is used as a way to remember the website, it still remained the same gaggle followed by a horizontal rule until November.

November 12, 2004: n00bjabi.info goes online - at the time there was a special on .info domains, and the webmaster jumped at the opportunity to get it.

December 27, 2004: an official webpage is made. The page started off as an article about a hat that the webmaster bought in germany, and a rant on asians.

January 14, 2005: n00bjabi.com, is bought as a domain. n00bjabi.com is now a full fledged website, with daily updates. Main features included photoshopped images of students attending Kentridge High School (98031), and daily picture archives of the day-by-day adventures of the webmaster.

Since then, n00bjabi.com has gone downhill, until December 24th, when a new portal went online. The addition of 4 new staffmembers marked an eventual increase of the popularity of n00bjabi.com Lucas, Mikey, Chanimal, and MexiCant work in collaboration with n00bjabi to produce anger-induced rants. The website focuses on offensive views and opinions, as well as a large dose of satire at times - to create the self proclaimed - 'successfully the most unsuccessful website ever.' The website runs on a PHP 5.x/Apache 2.x server maintained at home, since it doesn't receive a significant amount of traffic to begin with.

[edit] Porn buddy

This is the term for a close friend of a person (usually single) that "clears out" his/her house of questionable material before family members arrive in the event of a death or an accident. Usually, the porn buddy is given a key to access the premises and is told in greater detail of what things the friend wants disposed to avoid embarrassment of the person's lifestyle to other friends or family. This can include items such as black books, phone numbers, cell phones, magazines, deleting internet files and activity and sexual devices. The reason for having a porn buddy is for friends and family of the desceased to have better memories of him/her at their funeral or while visiting him/her in the hospital.

[edit] Synat (music)

Synat is a fairly typical teen band from Hucknall, Nottinghamshire, in that it is crap. It started life as a two man band for a fairly typical school talent contest, in that it was talentless. When the band was started by two fairly typical angry pubescent teenagers, who go by the fairly typical names of Ayden "Latrine Officer" Walters and James "Heavily Challenged" Fee. The first name that the band had was "Million Shades Of Grey" but, being fairly typical teenagers they changed it to something far more rubbish...S.Y.N.A.T. Music. We won't tell you what this fairly typical acronym means.

The current band members are fairly typical in that they are angry pubescent teenagers. They go by the names of (in alphabetical order); Jamie Bradley, Daniel Dolan, James Fee, Scott Ford and Ayden Walters.

To date, their music has been fairly typical teenage band produce in that it has been unmitigatedly awful. Their first home grown produce is "Over You". It is a good attempt to break the mould but sadly it has failed in a fairly typical fashion. The graceful voice of Ayden can't be heard over the killing of a guitar by James. Then just when we thought the worst was over, James entered with the backing vocals and came in about 3 seconds too fast. But apart from this the song is fairly typical.

The band currently enjoys a fairly typical following of 0 fans. Source: http://www.purevolume.com/synat]

[edit] Wyoming Panhandle

The Wyoming Panhandle is the proportionately widest and longest panhandle in the world. It includes an important proportion of the state of Wyoming. In terms of area and proportional relationship to the rest of the state, it can only compare to the Nebraska panhandle and the Colorado bootheel.

While the term "panhandle" is an informal geographic term, it is often used in a way that may be construed, whether correctly or incorrectly, as referring to an entity that is actually an officially designated term. Ironically, the term actually derives from the analogous part of a cooking pan (i.e. the big round part) In the case of the Wyoming panhandle, it is altogether appropriate that its use is generally confined to the United States, as is the state of Wyoming. A panhandle is similar to a peninsula in shape, but unlike a peninsula it is not surrounded by water on three sides and connected to a geographical mainland. Instead, a panhandle is instead surrounde by land on three sides, and may be surrounded by almost anything on its fourth side. The panhandle shape is the result of arbitrarily drawn international or subnational boundaries, although the location of some administrative borders takes into account other considerations such as economic ties or topography. In the United States, a protrusion with a less elongated shape is informally called a bootheel. For a well-known example, see the Colorado bootheel.

The Grand Tetons are a prominent and well-known feature in the central part of the Wyoming panhandle.

The Wyoming panhandle consists of the following counties: Natrona, Laramie, Sheridan, Sweetwater, Albany, Carbon, Goshen, Platte, Big Horn, Fremont, Park, Lincoln, Converse (county, not the shoe, Niobrara, Hot Springs, Johnson, Campbell, Crook, Uinta, Washakie, Weston, Teton, and Sublette counties. It is, relatively speaking, the most well-known and important part of the state; it is no exageration to say that, without it's panhandle, Wyoming would not even exist.

The Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains in the Wyoming panhandle, and the Continental Divide forks in the south central part of panhandle. Other areas of interest in the panhandle include:

Template:Ussm

Weather and topography in the panhandle both have more contrast than in the rest of the state. Severe weather is not uncommon, with the number of days with thunderstorms varying greatly accross the panhandle, with the southeastern plains having the most days of thunderstorm activity. It also rains alot. Because of the unique nature of the drainage in the continental divide basin, and because of unique natural properties of the land, extremely dangerous levels of toxic chemicals can accumulate in large bodies of liquid. Perhaps the most dangerous (and one of the leading causes of death in the very young) is Oxygen Dihydride. Because of this, the Wyoming panhandle should not be visited without adequate preparation; yet it is one of the most beautiful parts of the state of Wyoming, not to mention one of the largest.

[edit] Colorado Bootheel (from Wikipedia)

The Colorado bootheel is proportionately the largest bootheel in the world. It is nearly the size of the state of Colorado. It is, in fact, coterminous with the state of Colorado.

[edit] From User talk:Snookerhorn

[edit] Editing this page

Welcome! The following are the rules and guidelines for placing an edit on this page. As I expect to begin editing wikipedia heavily, the number of potential comments/criticisms generated requires use of an organized system of categorization.

General guidelines

First, it is important to organize the discussion page by user name

If your user name begins with any letter from the alphabet sequence A-M (of the traditionally arranged English alphabet), please place your comment using level 2 headline for the first letter of your nickname preceding the comment subject, your alphabetical designation letter to be followed by a colon. The colon should be in the same font as the heading and placed directly after the first letter of your user name, followed by a space between the colon and the beginning of your comment subject in the level 2 headline. The text of your comment will naturally fall under the headline in unaltered wikipedia font and and text.
If your user name begins with any letter from the English alphabet sequence N-Z, please follow the instructions above. However, in addition, you must bold the first letter of your user name. This is designed to allow me to keep track, at a glance, of the statistical array of user names of wikipedians responding to my posts. The text of your comment will follow the headline in unaltered wikipedia editing font.

Other alphabetical user names absent

In the event that you are the first user of a given alphabetical designation to place a comment on this page, you must place those letters, in order, 1 per line, which precede the letter category designated for your user name. This will be done using the same font and heading style as prescribed in the section above, as though a person with that user name were in fact posting a comment themselves. Future users with a letter designation matching that of one created on the page, but not yet posted under, are required to amend the simple letter designation with the appropriate colon and comment title (see above), thus converting the bare letter to the first heading beginning with a user name of that appropriate letter designation.

Chronology

This will differ depending on whether you are initiating discourse on the user page, or responding to a post by me. If you have not received a post on your user talk page, with an official Snookerhorn signing (make sure to verify this!), you will place your comment on this page at the top of the others which begin the alphabetical category to which you belong. If, however, you are responding to a post of mine, you will place your comment at the bottom of those comments in the alphabetical category to which your user name belongs. In addition, you must copy and paste (no recreations!) the title of the comment to which you are responding. Following this, you must paste the official Snookerhorn signing (cannot be from SINEBOT), which will contain my user name, the designation "(talk)", followed by the time and date of the original comment. If you like, you may delete "(UTC)" or any similar designation from this string. You must place this on the first line, in bold, following your heading in order to have your comment read. The main text of your comment should thus begin on the second line (third line if including the level 2 heading) of your posted response. Please note that I will check to see if you are in fact responding to an earlier post (these are all catalogued and recorded, by me), and that the provisions of this guideline have been followed.

Instructions to remain at the top of the page, always

In no event will a user be permitted to post anything, comment or otherwise, above the text of these instructions (with the exception of questions or inquiries, see below). As the first user with an "A" designation should naturally begin the posting below the instructions (unless the A designation is in fact created by a non-A designated user, in the event of no A postings at the time of the non-A users post (see above)) it should be more or less simple to follow to avoid a violation of this requirement. The first "A" designation post will occur no less than two standard lines (i.e. in traditional double-spaced format) from the end of these instructions.

[edit] From Collapse of the United States

The collapse of the United States of America will take place sometime between September 1 and September 30, 2008 according to Nostradamus. It will be caused by many factors: the obesity epidemic, the ongoing war in Iraq, the arrogant attitude of American Liberals, and the financial insolvency of America's Social Security program. While the nation will not split into 52 breakaway republics, there is a chance that Southern Americans will take advantage of the collapse to reform the Confederate States of America and use their influence to revert NASCAR back into a regional sport. Alaska would eventually join Canada while Hawaii would become a nation with other former U.S. territories in the Pacific Ocean. Quebec, on the other hand, would take advantage of America's collapse to become a sovereign nation.

None of this will happen however. All of the above is based purely on biased speculation.

[edit] From Antichrist

In the past few months, the rapid, miraculous rise of Barack Obama, and his followers adulation, seems to parallel the predictions for the Antichrist. In addition, the scars on both sides of Obama's head are a vertical straight scar on the right side (for 1) and a sideways V on the left side (for 5 as V is a 5 in roman numerals) and in the tip or point of that V are two small 66's. This id/ing of Obama as the antichrist may well trigger his further raging with heavy demogogery with no plan. [39]]

[edit] From The Fax Machine Monster of Basildon

The Fax Machine Monster of Basildon is a novel series by SSADM developer, Roger Hinds. As of April 2008, the series comprises four novels. A fifth will be released in June 2008. The sixth, and final, novel in the series will be released in January 2009.

[edit] Series

[edit] The Typistry Terror

See The Typistry Terror

The Typistry Terror was originally released in June 2002 and began the saga that was The Fax Machine Monster of Basildon. Following the story of a cursed, killer fax machine, The Typistry Terror set a new bar for horror novels, and despite its mix of comedy with the gruesome scenes present in the book, it has been described by the Guardian as "terrifying".

The Typistry Terror sees the cursed fax machine drawn out from an old supply cupboard when a fresh business begins and purchases its first set of offices. Though the model is somewhat outdated, they begin to use the machine. It is not long before everyone who uses the machine becomes haunted by it, seeing it on their toilet seats as they shower, hearing it printing a fax as they lay sleeplessly in bed. One by one, the office girls suffer grisly deaths as the fax machine works its cruel magic.

[edit] The Print-out of Doom

The Print-out of Doom was the sequel to the bestselling chart-topper, The Typistry Terror. The sequel to the series was released in November 2003 and follows the continuing saga of its star evil fax machine. After the business closes down at the end of The Typistry Terror, the fax machine is sold off along with the majority of the company's other assets. The fax machine doesn't work at first when it is tried by its buyer, so they throw it out of a window into a skip.

However, the characters get more than they bargained for as the fax machine makes its way back into the house overnight. They continue to dispose of it but it keeps coming back, and every time it does, more horrifying accidents occur. So the two buyers decide to dispose of it once and for all by chopping it into pieces with an axe.

Only even this doesn't stop the fax machine. The next morning it is back, completely reformed. And, as the blurb comments, "It's pissed."

When Roger was queried in an interview whether the fax machine works alone or has an 'accomplice', he merely responded:

"That would be interesting."

In the books following, there have been no further hints to this possibility though Roger has not yer ruled it out.

[edit] Connect or Die

The third book in the bestselling series was released in June 2004. Connect or Die saw the fax machine find its way into a downtown dump after the gripping conclusion of The Print-out of Doom. Jeremy, a teenager looking through the dump for discarded 'junk' he might find useful stumbles over the fax machine (literally) and thinks he will take it home.

Soon afterwards, the boy began to have recurring nightmares as he saw the fax nachine connecting to the internet to download a fax only to begin to bleed out of the printer slot. Frightened, Jeremy moved the fax machine out of his room and onto the downstairs computer. The dreams stopped, but Jeremy's family start going crazy, scratching themselves apart like rabid animals and attacking each other violently. Jeremy realises that it stops when the fax machine is connected to the internet and thinks that is the cure - but Jeremy is wrong. Very, very wrong.

Connect of Die was the first book in the series to feature a storyline similar to its title. Like the previous books in the series, it was a bestseller on release.

[edit] 300DPI: Deaths Per Inch

After the fantastic critical response to Connect or Die, Roger Hinds announced the fourth book in the continuing series of The Fax Machine Monster of Basildon and announced a release in February 2005. In December 2004, he announced the title of the book.

300DPI: Deaths Per Inch sees a reporter who investigates the deaths of the family members in the third book discovering the strange fax machine. He notices it, unlike everything else in the room he finds it in, is not covered in blood. He suddenly recalls news reports in the last year of other grisly deaths and wonder if the fax machine could be involved somehow.

His research takes him into darker territory, though, as he soon discovers that the fax machine is driving him insane as he tries to find out the answers to its mysteries, even though it is locked away in a vault elsewhere. As his life crashes down, he decides to take the fax machine out of the vault to ask the thing itself for an answer to why it is linked to so many kills - only to discover the vault is empty, a bloody note in its place telling him that he is the fax machine's latest victim.

[edit] The Fax Attacks

The Fax Attacks is the fifth novel in the Fax Machine Monster of Basildon series and is due for release on June 2nd 2008. For a time, it was speculated that the fourth novel was to be the last in the series due to the long gap between releases.

Currently, little is known about the plot, but in an interview, Roger Hinds commented:

"This is the biggest one yet. Definitely, The Fax Attacks will be the biggest and most gruesome in the series. I won't comment about what's in it exactly but I can say that the fax machine has gone back with the character we saw in the epilogue of book four and we'll see just what it gets up to this time around."

When asked of a rumour regarding a sex scene in the novel, Roger merely tapped his nose and smiled in a mystifying way.

In an interview conducted on April 24th 2008, Roger revealed more about the book in the promotional lead-up to its release:

"The Fax Attacks will finally answer a query some readers may have found themselves with. There are long-standing, quite hidden mysteries lurking in the background and book five definitely begins to crack them open as the series works its way to a conclusion. I won't comment on exactly what, but there's definitely something going on there and book five will shove that into the limelight and then give answers."

When asked if there is something behind the fax machine, Roger went on to say:

"I'm assuming by that you mean is it just killing or is there some reason behind it all. Book five and six will give you the answer to that question."

Roger also commented that the fifth and sixth books are more like two halves of a novel than two separate books, leading to speculation that this will be the first novel in The Fax Machine Monster of Basildon series where characters survive until the end.

Controversies

On February 5th 2007, a chapter was leaked onto the internet revealing details to a long-standing mystery regarding the fax machine that began in the second novel in the series, The Print-out of Doom. The chapter was quickly removed and publishers issued an apology and requested those that had seen the chapter not spoil it for other readers.

[edit] Untitled sixth novel

The fifth novel in the continuing saga is due to be released in June 2008 and was originally announced in September 2007. Roger has said in multiple interviews that he had no end date in mind, but approaching the release of The Fax Attacks, Roger commented:

"The sixth will probably be the last one. I'm redrafting it now and it brings things to a satisfying if grisly conclusion. There may be another one in the future after that but I feel for sure that number six is the last and I'll be moving on to new things when it's done."

When asked for a release date of the final, as yet untitled novel, Roger speculated somewhere around January 2009. This was confirmed in an interview on April 24th 2008:

"The publishing process on book six has begun now and we're pushing for a January 2009 release though we were considering trying to hit a December 2008 release in time for the holiday season."

In an interview given on April 24th 2008, Roger admitted that the sixth novel would be the last in the ongoing saga:

"Number six is the last. No question about it, number six is the final novel in the series. [...] It's the longest one of them all and I feel it's the darkest yet. Number six isn't just the fax machine killing - this time it's all-out war. And it ties up all the loose ends too."

He went on to say that the fifth and sixth novels are like two halves of one story rather than two separate ones, leading to speculation that the sixth will pick up with the same characters directly where book five left off.

[edit] Rumoured title

On April 24th 2008, a rumour began circulating that the sixth and final novel in the series was to be called 'The Modem Massacres'. As of yet, this remains unconfirmed.

[edit] Future

Now that Roger has confirmed that the sixth novel will be the last in the series, what the teacher/author will do next is unknown. Roger commented:

"I've got a few ideas for the next thing and I'm going to start work on something soon. Rest assured, the last book in The Fax Machine Monster of Basildon series is not the last you'll hear of me."

[edit] Trivia

  • The series has been translated into twenty languages world wide.
  • Many conspiracy theorists in Basildon believed 'The Typistry Terror' to be true; in one extreme case a worker demanded that his office get rid of their fax machine or he would 'cause havoc' in the building.
  • The second book was a major financial success in Korea when it was released a year after the United Kingdom. Publication of the third book was rushed and the translation was full of mistakes. This has been blamed on the book's flop in Korea after it fell out of the top ten after only two weeks.
  • When asked if The Fax Machine Monster of Basildon would be optioned for a movie, Roger commented that "Twentieth Century Fox tried to option it but I declined. In my experience, movies of books generally aren't as good."

[edit] From Carthage, New York

Carthage is a village located in the Town of Wilna in Jefferson County, New York. The population was 3,721 at the 2000 census. The village is named after the historic Carthage in North Africa.

Highlights include a heated sidewalk at St. James Catholic Church, the Elks Lodge, the Sewage Treatment Plant, Intorcia's Doughnuts, and Stefano's Pizzeria.[40]]

Having been raised in the rural Village of Carthage, I have come to realize the village is situated directly over a black hole. I can attest that it will consume your soul in its entirety as it is a perpetual spinning vortex of doom: Once you enter, you will never be allowed to leave.

"The group also runs 91.5 WNYE on the radio, as well as RadioNYC, the city's telephone hold system, when calling 911 and 311."

(Yes, I can see it now... "Suicide prevention, please hold. Thank you for calling 9-1-1! Your call is important to us and will be answered in sequence, please remain on the line to guard your call priority. This call may be recorded for quality-control purposes... [bland elevator music] ... thank you for continuing to hold. Your patience is valued and an operator will be with you shortly...")
