Post by Awinnell on Fri 5 Sep 2008 - 9:09

The 2001 census reveals that 390,000 people across England and Wales are devoted followers of the Jedi "faith" made famous by the blockbuster films.
Census officials bowed to pressure after a massive internet campaign to include Jedi on the list of chosen religions.

I hear the Trekkies in Britain did the same thing a few years back.

Comments : To those who don't know me, I've been a Cyborg Central member since 2008 and used to assist in scanlating chapters for the Gunslinger Girl manga when it was still being published in Japan. Now, I just tend to drift around in here now and then depending on whatever random impulse implores me to float back in here. Maybe I'll stick around, maybe I won't. Depends on what real life and the Internet implore me to do.

One of the weirdest thing I knew--and I knew it will grow. -_-

...soon they'll be studying the force and start pushing Big Ben slightly to the left and decorate the Parliament into a Jedi Temple while having Tea and Scones. And when you ask them what's up with their outfit and where they're from, they'll say

'I'm from England! Eaaargh...'

Oook...

And when you leave...

'May the force be with you young lad!'

heh... knew a dude in basic who wanted to have 'Jedi' put on his dog tags. Wish I woulda thought of it too... not that they allowed it. We were both listed as 'No Religious Preference' (which was the truth... but who needs truth when you have Awesome!?)
...so we started the church of NO-REL-PREF (which is what's printed on the tags)... and we wound up 'worshiping the holy NO-REL-PREF' at the Jewish services every morning... 'cause they had chips and soda.
