ok, we can settle this once and for all. the following message is talking
about england, but i'm wodering if it applies here? the census is delayed
till april 2002, so we have time to get this right. essentially, you'd
put vi or emacs down for a religion and then at the end we'd have a count.
so, does ireland have the same rule?

As you may know there is a census coming around on August the 7th.
For those who don't know, a census is where the government collates
general information about its residents (number of people living in
your house, religion, etc).
But did you know that If there are enough people, who put down a
religion that isn't mentioned on the census form it becomes a fully
recognised and legal religion. It usually takes about 10,000 people
to nominate the same religion.
It is for this reason that it has been suggested that anyone who does
not have a dominant religion to put "Jedi" as their religion. Send
this on to all your friends and tell them to put down "Jedi" on
their census form.
And remember ......If you are a member of the Jedi religion then
you are by default a 'Jedi Knight'.
So if this has been your dream since you were 4 years old.... Do it
because you love Star Wars, If not........... then just do it out
