    The Brit Census is every ten years and is mandatory (i.e. you can be fined or imprisoned for not filling it in) for every household in the UK. It's not a difficult thing to fill in (and there were official help lines and help centres for those who had problems), but the hard of thinking and terminally lazy always grumble about it. Accordingly, anything that's open to abuse will be seized on. I reckon that a sizeable number of folks who put down 'Jedi' did so after a night down the pub.

    I realise this is incitement to every Brit Star Wars nut in HTF to respond to this, but Star Wars has nowhere near the same grip on imagination in the UK that it has in the USA. The number of people who are *that* fixated on Star Wars is very limited, and most of that number probably still live with their parents and so wouldn't be responsible for filling in the form.

    And no, I didn't put down 'Jedi' on my form.

    I thought we weren't supposed to discuss religion on the HTF.[​IMG]

    Next thing you know we will see off Jedi religeous cults getting headlines on the news for cloning human children.

    Without getting into discussions which are most certainly out of bounds here, I'll just say that I could totally see myself doing something like this. Although instead of 'Jedi' I'd certainly list 'Esoteric Order of Dagon.' Much more obscure and thus much more fun [​IMG]

    Actually, I find it funny that almost 400,000 households would fill in "Jedi" for a religion. [​IMG] I'd probably do it. I assume that the "head of Household" is responsible for filling out the questioner, so presumably they are the responsible ones. I'd understand if the kids were the ones filling out the forms.

    Imagine if you will.... 400,000 letters showing up at Skywalker Ranch, all asking for the OT on DVD before the end of the year!!! That would get a reaction I'm sure.[​IMG]

    Would joining the Jedi religion conflict with me being a high priest in the Universal Church of Dogbert?

    I thought we joined this forum because we all worshipped before the one-eyed god that speaketh with many voices from all around us[​IMG]
