as a person suspicious of all religion, I am following this pope election because Marc Ouellet is in the running.

i see this as just political event, and so it interests me to see a Canadian winning this.

bookies have him 7-2 odds, the Guinea one 3-1.

I just think it would be hilarious to hear a pope talk like Alexandre Burrows. I would like to hear a "Amen, eh" a few times.

Quick question. Is the Pope Mobile the original or has it changed over the years. If not, it probably qualifies for collectors plates.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

Cabin: Bullet proof plexiglass able to withstand explosions, with built-in oxygen supply.

That's pretty hardcore. Is it used to transport the Pope or cross enemy lines?

Hard to go green when a car is reinforced with thick bulletproof windows, layers upon layers of metal, and enough medical/warfare items for a small battle-station.

Hopefully they used recycled materials at the very least.

As a roman catholic you can do anything you want as long as you are baptized and then confess your sin. Once you confess your sins you get to go to heaven.

Religion doesn't do anything for me. Funny thing at work we have a very religious person. It is more acceptable to swear in front of them then to say god doesn't exist. Strange how that works. Foul language = acceptable, challenging faith = don't even think about it.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Little confused as to why you find this strange. So you find it odd that someone doesn't have a problem with your language, but does take issue when you challenge their beliefs?

Kinda hot in these rhinos.

You are a worse psychiatrist than you are a son in law, and you will never get work as an actor because you have no talent.

it's so strange what they are progressive about and what they are not about. Evolution and Aliens. Both things that roman catholic church believes in. But gays women and pedophilia. not so much.

I don't use foul language personally. Just an observation. And it was religious beliefs which were brought up by the religious person and then challenged by someone else. I was merely an observer. Just to clarify.
