    Yes, St. Patrick's day is on the 17th.

    And sure, green is the colour.

    I won't be drinking green beer, but I will most likely be drinking copius amounts of regular beer.

    It's great seeing the whole world celebrate St. Patricks Day as if they were Irish. :D

    Most of you guys don't know, but Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly UMR) has the largest St. Pats celebration in the midwest. Students here (I'm a former student and now faculty member) get Thursday and Friday off, and parties are going on every night. There is Beer For Breakfast at some location every morning of the St. Pats Week, and it is quite common for students to show up to class drunk, and some are even drinking during class (not in original containers of course). I've also known a professor or 2 to bring in enhanced coffee.

    The Associated Press came down and did a story about it over the weekend, you can find their article here: http://www.bnd.com/336/story/282100.html

    And a better article on the events at STL Today found here: http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/ne...2AF85D2C7DC3C9508625740C00814EDB?OpenDocument

    Ravi, don't you have enough of your own pagan holidays to celebrate....?

    Just kidding.

    The more the merrier, Captain.

    But haven't you figured out yet, that I was in an boarding school run by Irish Christian Brothers ? ;)

    Then you gotta throw in a "Happy Passover" as well which falls between the two ;)

    Is there such a greeting as "Happy Passover"? I thought Passover was rather somber, and associated with mostly inedible cuisine.
    So basically what you're saying is, that you were captured in the wild and force fed Catholicism by Irish religious fanatics. You sir, do indeed, have my sympathies. Unless you dropped out of reform school, in which case, "for shame"!

    In the spirit of preventing future occurrences of this nature, I propose a vaccine be invented, to immunize against the possible "spread of Christianity".

    As you may have noticed, some of the best efforts in support of my "socialization", have failed miserably.

    But still, LookinAround may be on to something, a combination holiday. I'm trying to develop an "appropriate" mythology. Something about Jesus, St. Patrick, coming from behind rocks, seeing shadows, six more weeks of winter, going to dinner, "oh no, snake for dinner again". Nah, that'd probably get me canceled, just like it did the Smothers Brothers back in the day.

    You certainly, do have a way with words.

    Relax, old man, no lassos were involved, and I'm as "wild" as ever.;)

    Okay, now for passover : which one do you want to go by, the Old Covenant or the New Covenant.

    Back to the "Irish religious fanatics"; some of them were nuts :rolleyes:, but for the most part they were rather moderate, and open minded.:)

    The one with the better food, If this is true of neither, I shall "pass over" the holiday altogether. :rolleyes: (A "rolleyes" for the shamelessly bad pun. Admission absolves guilt! Now where have I heard that before...)?

    Given to the fact that you are spouting Gaelic, I'm going to suggest that that were possibly on the "heavy handed" side of true moderate.

    I don't know about the brothers, but the "good Catholic girls", that I met in my youth, were some of the most "liberal" people I've ever met.

    Oh , Happy St. Patricks Day...!

    With that out of the way, might I prevail on you another question..? Do you think it's true that rattlesnake "tastes like chicken"? :wave: :haha:

    Oh, lest I forget, you did manage to confuse me quite comprehensively with the thread about programming. :confused: .Ya gotta give credit where credit is due. Still, don't think you were the first, Atari BASIC confused me thirty years ago. And I'm still >>> confused...!

    There's a lot of Blarney going on here...from your Canadian friends. We are all a little bit Irish (and french, and native, and ukranian)

    And isn't that the foundation of a good solid St. Patrick's Day celebration?

    I dated the loveliest Irish lass there ever was, surname, "Gaffney"! I said, (in jest of course), "Gaffney's the name, blarney's the game"! The young lady thought that was hysterical, her dad of course, not so much, "A". :rolleyes: (We speak Canadian here at Techspot, we just can't spell it).

    So the Leprechauns Actually Have Their Pots if Gold in Indian Casinos...Ey...?

    You did it again! Como esto; "you're" YOU ARE..! Oh wait, that's in Canadian ey, my bad.:eek:

    I guess you won't be saving me any of the cactus now, will you.... ey..?

    Da, dum, dum, dah, dah, dum, dah........"One pill makes you larger, one pill makes you small, and the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all............." (Grace Slick)

    I suppose that most of your post traumatic stress induced celebratory goals are harmless enough, but if you start doing a war dance, dressed in a leprechaun outfit, I'm pulling the plug..! :rolleyes: :wave: :haha: ROFLMAO, here in lovely scenic filth-a-delphia.

    Chasing rabbits....

    "tell them a hookah- smoking caterpillar ....has just given you the call....go ask Alice....when she was just smallllllll"

    "you know anything about football boy?"......PASS IT!

    I fear I may have offended our Canadian friend. well to cap off St Patty's (the day, not Ms O'Phurniture) My wife and I are going to re-enact a scene from dances with wolves. and having been the executor of my full blooded Cherokee grandfathers estate....I have just the authentic gear to pull it off.
