FTFA: Lack grew up a "very devout Catholic" and used to pray every night before bed. "Make me pretty so the boys will like me," was a common prayer for her back then, she said, but now she tries to make less "trivial" appeals.

I don't see how this is in any way "trivial".

That.

/"THIS" is trite, hackneyed, and obsolete.

It's more interesting than the "art" that just went up by where I live in B-more. There are 4 public parks around Baltimore's Washington Monument (first monument to the guy by the way). Some art douche decided he would put golden fences around all the parks for 2 or 3 weeks to get people to think about the spaces they use or some shiat. Luckily there was a popular revolt after a few days and they opened the fences up so people could still use the parks.

WTF ever happened to artists using their artistic skills to make goddamn freaking ART!? You know, like paintings and sculptures and junk. Do art schools teach that stuff anymore?

I'm sure it works as well as prayer does.

Reminds me of the old joke...

This guy goes traveling through the Bible Belt. All along the way he sees phone booths that say "Call Heaven." Whenever he picks them up, they ask $10,000 a minute for a call. But people are lining up to these phones and telling him it's well worth the cost. He finally gets to Texas, and picks up one of these phones, and hears, "Please deposit 50 cents for the first three minutes." He asks, "How come it's so much cheaper here in Texas to call God?"

"It's a local call, sir."

I don't think "Dead Poets Society" is even remotely obscure...

...especially on fark, where NOTHING is obscure.

Love that movie, btw.

You know who else had their faces melted off? Clue: they were not Nazis.

I am doing this wrong.

I don't pray in a booth, Heaven Telephone and Telegraph, my carrier, handles all my mobile praying needs.

Silverwood, 32, the inventor, said he also prays, but not anywhere specifically. "I just do it while I'm walking," he said. His most fervent wish right now: more money because he has spent all his savings trying to invent the world's fastest motorized skateboard.

Just because the answer isn't what you wanted doesn't mean He didn't answer. He just gave you the right response to the wrong request.
