Austrian driver's religious headgear strains credulity

An Austrian atheist has won the right to be shown on his driving-licence photo wearing a pasta strainer as "religious headgear".

See here the full link.

I do hope the Kansas School board will accept the pastafarian version of intelligent design to be taught as well.

i saw that.  thought it was funny.  on the other...i don't care if they don't teach the theory of ID but they should also get rid of the theory of evolution.  since neither are proved, if one is objected to, so should both....or teach both and let the kids decide....and throw in the spaghetti  monster too if you wish.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Great article.  Let's me know there is one truly nut case out there and he is not from around here.   And just how much pasta does this guy eat anyways?

Checked out wiki on these guys.   My wife still has not stop laughing.   The central belief is that an invisible and undetectable Flying Spaghetti Monster created the universe. Pirates are revered as the original Pastafarians, and Pastafarians assert that a steady decline in the number of pirates over the years has resulted in a significant rise in global temperature.  They have put some real thought into this.  I really like the holiday of Ramendan.  It is similar to the Islamic holiday of Ramadan. Instead of praying and fasting, participants spend a few days eating nothing but ramen instant noodles, remembering their days as college students, and giving thanks for how far they have come.
How could I have missed this until now?

I don't want to get in trouble for saying this but that could be the next poster for birth control.
