Acceptable, but the butt hurt will be much greater with a black one.

Endive Wombat: what do they use to make the smoke white?

yes, this is the most important question.


I'm not sure what particular method the Vatican uses, but water vapor in the smoke will do it.

A true story about the Vatican:

My brother used to run an online store for women's underwear. One of his popular items was a thong with the Vatican flag on it. Sadly he had to take it the website down due to a cease and desist demand from Vatican city.

it was called hahapanties.com

Dammit.  This headline is better then anything I could come up with.

:(
 
2013-03-13 02:26:37 PM
That article was suprisingly detailed. They mentioned that they used chemical cartridges to color the smoke but I didn't expect them to also list the chemicals in them or explain the origins of "conclave."

If Best Korea attacked South Korea and Japan, and China stepped in and helped Best Korea, and then a few people dropped big bombs that killed millions of people....

....your coffee would still taste the same.  Your measure for whether something matters on the global scale is a bit...strange.

I don't care who the new pope is, so long as he chooses Lando II as his papal name.

I kind of hope so.

That would be amusing.

I'm still waiting for the concession call from the cardinals. I'm also waiting for them to ask me if I want to be pope.

I will not concede this election

spentmiles: It'd be awesome if no one emerged all day and night, but smoke kept billowing out.  Finally, tomorrow morning, they knock down the door and find nothing but a bunch of charred remains and the stench of burnt flesh.  Then that seagull flies in and starts turbo-shiatting all over everything.  I see in rock and roll.


Does this make me a sick fark for thinking, just as the white smoke came pouring out, that hey, Cardinal BBQ!  Where's the beer!??

Hasn't it been only two days of conclaving for the past two popes too?  Maybe they wanted to keep the streak going.

chrylis: cretinbob:

Whoa. What anti-Catholic screed is *that* from?


Prayer against the Antichrist and Pope in Rome with his Adherents

Beloved God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!  We pray You: visit us once again with all Your wonderful works, and let us see the day of the coming of the glory of Your Son, when that joker, the Antichrist, who is the man of sin and the son of perdition (2 Thessalonians 2: 3-4), will be overthrown and smashed to pieces.  Bring to an end the massive deception of the devil, through which, sadly, at each moment many thousand souls perish and are dragged into hell, only for this reason-that the [adherents of the Pope] want to preserve the tyranny of the detestable and apostate (that is, [Christ-] renouncing] chair in Rome in its essential nature [as the seat within God's temple in which man exalts himself above God-2 Thessalonians 2:4].   To this the whole world says, Amen, Amen.  Martin Luther (1483-1546)

I was going for the St. Malachy Antichrist angle though. I'm not anti-catholic personally.
 
2013-03-13 02:27:50 PM

Treygreen13: The conclave entered into the room.
Inside of it they sat, these cardinals of doom.
Their votes was unanimous.
The horror instantaneous.
Observe! Smoke from chimney - not white but red!
They say it was the day that God bled.
Nuns weeped, holy men cursed
As they looked up onto the balcony and saw...
Beelzebub the First!
I am the Anti-Pope.
I am the Anti-Pope.
Like a lion kills an antelope.
Like a hammer hits a cantaloupe.


Do you not know what you want, but know how to get it?

Non-practicing Catholic here.  Chance of black Pope = <0%  Latin = 3%  Old white guy = 96.7%
 
2013-03-13 02:28:05 PM

durbnpoisn: Good.  Can we just get over this already?

Speaking as a non-Catholic, I find it completely absurd that the news media is portraying this as some sort of gigantic event for all of humanity.  My coffee will still taste the same tomorrow...  In other words, it means less than nothing to me.


Also speaking as a non-Catholic; the fact that you happen to think that it's not a big event says nothing about whether or not is actually is a major event. The Catholic Church is one of the largest, oldest, and most influential organizations in the history of civilization. Period. There are over 1.2 billion Catholics, and over 400,000 priests in the Church - not including the monastic orders, lay orders, and other affiliated organizations. The Pope has a remarkable amount of influence in the doctrinal decisions of the church, and church policy influences state policy in dozens of nations all over the world. The political and theological positions of the next pope will help to shape the church's stance on contraception, abortion, the status of women, and a host of other social and theological issues for the next several decades at least.

You can think it's absurd; you're free to feel that it means nothing to you. But let's be honest; the election of a new pope isa big deal.

No way. He's straight and not a pedophile.

My prediction for pope:

Cardinal Angelo Scola will be Pope Peter II.
 
2013-03-13 02:28:34 PM
Papal election is fine.

Papal erection, not so much.  Less hope this one isn't a pedophile.
