OMFG, there's a comic book.

In other news, I succumbed to the blandishments of the Internets and bought two bags of coffee (coals to Newcastle, honestly) for the free coffeemaker.
It's pretty much the same one-cup model you can find in any hotel these days, but that's pretty much all I need. I now have a lifetime supply of filters for my Cardinal Ratzinger Fan Club mug, which is reserved for those mornings when I need a LOT of coffee fast.

Of topic, (but then whadd'ya expect from a Baptist?). I just finished Flashforward by Robert J. Sawyer. In it he briefly mentions Pope Benedict the 16th (IIRC). The book was copy-written in 1999, so I was rather surprised to read this. However, I imagine that Cardinal Ratzinger might have looked most likely to succeed Pope John Paul the Second.

(Side question. What's the correct why to refer to a Pope's prior life? To say, "...on Thursday, May 15th 1993 Cardinal Ratzinger..." or "...on Thursday, May 15th, 1993 Pope Benedict..."? Does it even make any difference?)

A lot of us were hoping he'd be the one to succeed Pope John Paul II, and we're glad to see the Holy Spirit agreed with us. :)

IIRC the correct way to talk about the current Pope before he became Pope would be to say "Cardinal Ratzinger" or whatever his title was at the time in question.

Out of curiousity, why the hope C. Ratzinger would move on to Pope? I'm guessing not anything agains Pope John Paul the Second, right?

You know, should I ever do cosplay, I'd wanna do Lt. Mary Sue.

(I'm willing to accept donation not to, however.)
