Quote# 31674

There are two things I do that I wonder if I'm the only one in the world who does these.

1. In a store, getting my stuff rang up and it comes out to $6.66, I always ask if they can change the price...most do it, either a penny up or down.

2. If I have a Bible set on a desk, I never put my wallet on top of it...well anything else either, because I feel that doing that might be a message that I value those items more than the Word.

Anyone else have any odd quirks??

No you're just insane.

That's called superstition, and your God takes a dim view of it. (Either that, or religiously-triggered OCD.)

The thing that bothers me about fundamentalist Christianity is this: it's dualist. It's very dualist, but the damn fundies will never admit it, will go out of their way to condemn dualism. But it's quite evident that the fundy YHWH is only slightly more powerful than Satan, which is complete nonsense based on what's in the Bible.

Thing being, none of this would be necessary if God had truly vanquished evil. But fundies will say it but not seem to believe it.

Lol, when I was a cashier (I live in the bible belt by the way) I would ring up a $6.66 about once every two weeks and 75% of the time the customer would buy a pack of gum or candy to change the total.

It's like their afraid that their going to be struck by lightning as soon as they leave the store.

Why just a penny, I'd be happy to add a whole dollar, just for you. ;-)

Is it a leather-bound Bible with Gold Leaf edging of the pages, or just a paperback $3.99 copy?

Or do you value style over substance?

11/27/2007 11:55:11 PM


Yeah, I avoid walking on the cracks in the sidewalk.

11/27/2007 11:55:52 PM


Yes, i generally have a low opinion of superstitions.

11/27/2007 11:58:49 PM


Not too fundie, just weird.

Closer to OCD with religious obsessions than fundie.

Although, I think to myself: I would love to trap Frank in a room as I slowly tore each page out of a babble. Then I wonder if that makes me a bad person...

Ask your doctor if Paxil is right for you.

You've got OCD.

I have a low tolerance for stupidity.

I suspect that asking that question on that board is kind of like asking if water is wet.

Nope. It looks like even there, they look at him funny. Never mind my previous sentence then.

11/28/2007 1:24:27 AM


Well, at least he acknowledges his actions as being odd.

When my stuff gets rang up and it totals $6.66, I make fun of the Fundies who cower at a rather unspectacular number.

If I have a Bible set on a desk, the Universe would implode due to the paradox of me actually owning a Bible. If I did somehow acquire one, I would prolly give it away.

FrankBeMe, get a fucking life.

The number of the beast is 616. Seriously, its not 666.

11/28/2007 3:11:26 AM


When I'm alone at my house, I sometimes sit around in my underwear. I'm sure I'm not the only one, though.

11/28/2007 4:19:33 AM


That's not a quirk, that's schizophrenia.

11/28/2007 4:30:47 AM


"Do YOU hear the VOICES TOO?"

11/28/2007 4:51:28 AM


$6.66. Well if you asked me to change the price I'd say a round $10, please. I have to charge for the inconvenience you are causing. Besides, such a mindset is irreligious and superstitious! So you deserve to be charged for people having to humour you.

As to not putting something on top of your book, again this is nothing but superstition.

11/28/2007 5:06:32 AM


Well, whenever I see a bible on a desk, I have the urge to use it as a knife holder.

11/28/2007 5:35:06 AM


Yes but you're not going to like it.

During the recording of Iron Maiden's album "The Number of the Beast" their producer Martin Birch was in a fender bender. The repair bill to his car came to exactly 666 Pounds and he refused to pay that amount and insisted they add a Pound to the total.

There, feel better?

Yeah, muslim terrorists do this with the koran. Interesting company you keep.

11/28/2007 6:04:41 AM


Well Frank, you're certainly on the right site (RR) to find other people with such odd quirks...

11/28/2007 6:17:05 AM

have you been checked out for OCD?

11/28/2007 6:58:34 AM

@ Brian X

some people see Satan as more along the lines of a crown prosecutor, who works for god. (based on the book of job.) others see him as a much less powerful enemy who god allows to exist in order to test us, thus serving the same function, but unintentionally. it's really only the morons who think of Satan as being just as powerful and ready at any moment to tear the world to pieces unless they personally prevent him.
