    FYI gang !!!

    As some of you may know there is a census coming around on May 15, 2001
    (Canada). For those who don't know, a census is where the government
    compiles general information about its residents (number of people living
    in your house, religion, etc).

    If there are enough people, who put down a religion that isn't mentioned on
    the census form it becomes a fully recognised and legal religion. It
    usually takes about 10,000 people to nominate the same religion. It is for
    this reason that it has been suggested that anyone who does not have a
    dominant religion to put "Jedi" as their religion.

    Send this on to all your friends and tell them to put down "Jedi" on their
    census form. And remember ......If you are a member of the Jedi religion
    then you are by default a 'Jedi Knight'. So if this has been your dream
    since you were 4 years old, do it because you love Star Wars... If not,
    then just do it to annoy people!

    "May the Force be with you!"

    Tragic powers activate! Shape of, a spoilsport. Form of a rained on parade.

    It's all an internet hoax that started in New Zealand, wormed it's way over to Australia, hopped over to the UK and has made it's way cross the Atlantic to Canada.

    Since responding to this in the Toronto FanForce forum, I found this link:

    and this wonderful article from the BBC:

    Do keep in mind that while it would be a really interesting blip on the statistical map of the country, there are fines for providing false information on the census. I know a lot better things I can do with five hundred bucks aside from paying a fine to Stats Can.

    My work here is done. Tragic powers de-activate.

    Of course for those of us willing to argue the point in a court...There are those of us that *do* believe in a form of 'The Force', although not identical to the Jedi, but most of the Catholics aren't going to agree with *everything* The Church says either...
