You know religion can be good business. Lots of money available from the gullible  Wink   Grin
Exploiting the gullible doesn't strike me as Splendid.

No one said it was. I was being sarcastic.

and from this thread: http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=27154.25

Quote
perhaps I approached this a bit too seriously, but... well here are nine I came up with off the top of my head.

Thou shalt not diminish any who embrace the ways of steampunk, no matter how small the manner of that embrasure.

Thou shalt not cash in on the trend of steampunk while neglecting the spirit of steampunk.

Thou shalt not sully the name of steampunk or use the term in vain.

Thou shalt not cast aside the old and broken.

Thou shalt not claim what thou dost not own; be it object, idea or accolades.

Remember the past from which the influences are drawn, and keep their memory alive.

Honour those that came before, the sacrifices they made and the discoveries they left to all.

Thou shalt favor quality in craft, as well as manor.

Thou shalt seek to learn and discover.

Yes it didn't seem worth mentioning that sacrament is done with tea and biscuits.

Or absinthe for Holy Communion. Works too.

How about opium for incense.

What? It's a good idea. It keeps the believers coming back!

If SP were a religion, would there be a call for volunteers to take up any Missionary positions?   Grin

I suspect the common prayer would commence:

Oh, God, hand me a bigger spanner, I can't get this bolt loose,
Oh, hallelujah, oh, now it's off, I hope it hasn't rolled under the boiler.
OhmiGawd, I need an extra hand to find it...

I wonder if I could use this as an excuse reason to wear my goggles the next time I have my photo taken for my driver's license.

This could also explain the ubiquity of the nonfunctional cog as a decorative element.

I am misrule. I delight in turning the ironic into faith and laughing all the way as I do so.
I have been writing such texts today. Ones that children will hang their faith on.
Hmmm I find my works disturbing. They clash with my ideals.
I will have to think on this....

Oh and Miss Anne, I have better lyrics for that song. But they are a dark thing.
I will keep them to my self. Though they may hold more truth.

You give off the air of a man of wealth and taste. Put pen to paper , one day they may be deemed acceptable for social consumption.

Tesla is a very broad church . His name is being invoked for various pop culture marketing promotions , including a right wing political party with facist overtones .
