in reply to poll ideas quest 2007

When I curse / pray, I invoke
  • the nameless Master of the Universe
  • a conventional, historical religious figure (Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha)
  • a conventional, historical non-religious figure (Groucho Marx, Charles Babbage, Raquel Welch)
  • simple, classic scatology
  • the Flying Spaghetti Monster
  • Aule, creator of Dwarves, patron of Programmers
  • Chthulu
  • Great Caeser's Ghost
  • Shazam
  • Larry Wall
  • I don't; cursing / praying is for the weak
  • Other
Revised to include Aule, as per ambrus.

    I ask for the blessings of Aulë, the lord of all earthly matter, master in all sciences and crafts, and personification of the programmer's virtues: wanting to automate things instead of doing them by hand, impatience, and pride of creating and owning something unique.

      A fellow Dwarf! I knew I wasn't alone!
