And maybe my daughter will marry the prince who lives in a castle and rides a white horse after he saves her from the dragon.

Look, I asked: "You don't believe in princes?"  And your response to this was to post, for no apparent reason, a euphemism for rimming. Your comments here are really very strange.

What is strange is your understanding of my post.  Extremely odd.  When people post things which have nothing at all to do with anything I have posted, I respond in kind, (i.e., Chocolate cake had nothing at all to do with your question).  Understand?  Whenever you see me post "chocolate cake" (as I have done a few times in various threads), it means I see no correlation to what I have said and what that person has said.  No sexual euphemism, although, it does show where most peoples minds linger.   :'(

If required, I can come up with another phrase, but I sincerely believe someone would still see it in a sexual way.  Very, very sad.

Because it had nothing to do with your post, as that (your) post had nothing to do with the one (mine) you responded to.  I will give an example.  Forgive its simplicity.

Person A:  I enjoy hunting.  (Person enjoys the outdoors, placing his wits and skill against natures, working for a good meal, etc.)

Person B:  So you are ok with people using guns to kill each other.  (In no way does this reply have anything to do with hunting.  In fact, guns were never mentioned at all.)

Person A:  Chocolate cake.  (In no way does this reply have to do with gun control)

I see a lot of conversations go through the first two steps repeatedly.  I just end it with "chocolate cake".  It saves time and lets the other person know I see what they are attempting to do.

Maybe in the future I will use Aspartate transcarbamylase as was suggested.

I was chrismated 12 years ago by the Antiochians and those on Athos would baptize me as well. I guess they have a really special baptism or something.  :angel:

I was trying to mark the irony.  Catholics are accused of sprinkling(aspersion) which is illicit, when pouring(affusion) is the method used.  The above is not triple immersion.  Pouring is pouring.  I don't have a proble with it, but lack of triple immersion is often cited as a problem here.

Every Catholic baptism I've seen only involves pouring a tiny bit of water over the forehead.

Threefold pouring over the whole body to simulate immersion is not the same as pouring over the forehead only.

Not even those fanatical, dastardly, extremist Athonites would question the "validity" of the baptism in that picture.

Really?  Why?  Because it wasn't done by Latins?  Or because this is an accepted method of baptism?  

We switched from triple immersion to something like this (in principle...we're gentler with babies) almost a thousand years ago (St Dionysius Bar Salibi basically implies that enough priests were incompetent enough at triple immersion that the bishops allowed the change in practice--live babies are happy babies, after all).  No one has ever questioned our practice as far as I'm aware.  Do Serbs and other groups of EO practice this form of baptism for some historical reason(s) that has been accepted by the others?

Hair gets wet, entire body gets wet, not the same.

Even triple immersion performed by Latins would be rejected on Athos.

I mean because this is an accepted method of baptism, widely practiced, and entirely uncontroversial.

And yet in neither form is there triple immersion, in this they are the same.  The point here being I tire of how Orthodox pastoral accomodations/innovations get a pass while Catholic ones get derided.
