I like ties.

I concur.
Bow ties are cool! 8)

Indeed, especially if it allows you to hang out with a looker like Amy Pond ;) (he types as he checks the mirror at his desk to make sure his bow tie is on straight)

I hereby BUMP this thread for the education and edification of newer members.

I notice Cyrillic has already posted, so he is exempted from reading it again.

I am that much closer to taking my life after being invaded by this:

Clicking on the hip name of the material might offend some.

When is it going to end?
Looking at this post a year later still has me in tears from laughing so hard.

Vagisoft.

That is just freaking priceless!

Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

THE OPINIONS HERE MAY NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL OR PERCEIVED ORTHODOX CHURCH

All hail and agree with AGABUS! the God of this website.

Take a breath, read Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Can't tell you how much I appreciate that!  I's good to laugh in the morning.  Wow. 
Thy Bridal Chamber, I see adorned, O my Savior, and have no wedding garment that I may enter.  Enlighten the vesture of my soul, O Giver of Light, and save me.

There is this guy in the Russian mission who will show up using a Hanfu, he has some pictures holding awesome swords on the internet and we call him Shanghai.
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

My new predicament is I have a hoodie that has a KKK-like pointed hood. And it's in brown too.

So is that forbidden?  ;)
