We need holidays that require endless sex and stuffing your face with meat, preferably bacon. That I could live with. Maybe an atheist Lent, or something.

You could stuff your face with a cock wrapped in bacon.

I have like 35 biscuits packets and 35 drinks, stowed safely in my room.
Every day fasting for 16 hours, 1 biscuits packet and 1 drink to survive.
starting at astonishing 46kg, i will probably weigh 40kg by the end of the month.  #-o  
And i will probably start flying too!  :shock:

One who fasts experiences two joys: he is joyful when he breaks his fast, and he is joyful by virtue of his fast when he meets his Lord".

So basically the two joys are finally being able to call it quits and going delusional from lack of sustenance?

Yeah, thanks but no thanks.

Yup, another month of suffering for me. I'll have to eat and drink discreetly, wake up very early (around 3 AM in the morning) to eat Sahur and then continue to pray Subh. Also after breaking the fast, I'm gonna have to pray Tarwih at the mosque for about 3 hours every night.  :roll:

Muslims who are fasting are not allowed to eat, drink, smoke, have sex even masturbate from 4 AM to generally 6 PM. This is worse if the day temperature is really hot (thirsty!), and you travel outside a lot. Also, food court or stands are generally closed or covered so that Muslims are not "disturbed" by the outside temptation, which is weird, cause the essence of Ramadan fasting is to test yourself, to hold yourself from giving in temptation of worldly desire. What good is it if the temptation is eliminated anyway?  :roll:

 :popcorn:    Nobody stopping my porn or masturbation. nobody told me to stop either.
they probably don't think i will do such a thing in such holy month.

I always think fondly of Ramadan. I used to have quite a few employees who were from Somalia, and during Ramadan, they fasted during the day, but in the evening, they would break out the sambusa, these delicious little turnover like things, filled with meat and veggies. Without fail they would share them with me, and everyone else at work. They were, and I'm sure still are, some of the kindest, most gracious people I have ever known.

Many of my friends are Somali Bantu refugees that I got involved with volunteering to help their children catch up in school when they got here. I've found them to be hard workers who care about their children's education and yes, very gentle and gracious.

Eh, nobody's stopping mine either!  [-X

Sometimes, when my mom's not going to the mosque with us, I don't go to the mosque, just, wandering around neighborhood like a hobo. LOL

Of course I keep watching my cellphone for the time when it's done, so I wait for my siblings at one corner of the street on the way home, and we go home together. Hell, I've been doing this with Maghrib and Subh as well, with my brothers!  :lol:

It's harder to do this in Tarwih cause that is when my mother also comes along with us to the mosque, it's kinda frustrating and lame.  :roll:

Most of the muslims I know around here don't really give it that much consideration - most of them are 'muslim' as a tip of the hat to clan loyalty rather than in any meaningful way.

  Plenty do though elsewhere though.  Meh, ramadamadingdong is just bog-standard religious going-through-the-motions autopilot for many IMO.

When I was in high school the muslims all had the days off on ramadan and weren't expected to do any work while they were gone. They were also excused from making up all the work they missed. One of my teachers got fed up with it because some of them used it just as an excuse not go to school (I know one of them who just stayed home and played Xbox all day) and she started to assign homework for them before it started. Needless to say they freaked the fuck out and complained to the principal, and the teacher had no choice but to back off.
I believe this is where the signature goes.

... makes me wonder of it's possible to be into a whole bunch of different religions then claim all the holidays...  :-k

I probably wouldn't get away with it as I'm not a convincing enough liar....  :(
