Alway's ride your bike against the flow of traffic
No! Bicycles are vehicles, and all vehicles are piloted in the same direction. No one wants a head-on collision with a bicycle.

It all depends on where you're riding; if on the street, then you're a vehicle and must obey all traffic laws (red lights, stop signs, lanes & turning, etc.) and must follow with traffic; if on the sidewalk, then (like pedestrian traffic) you should ride in a direction opposite traffic.

Be careful riding on sidewalks.  It's illegal in some places and besides that, it's hard to accomodate for walkers on the sidewalk.  Cars backing out of driveways have a harder time seeing you as do cars at intersections.

For instance, here is the Missouri Bike Law:
300.347. Riding Bicycle On Sidewalks, Limitations - Motorized Bicycles Prohibited
(1) No person shall ride a bicycle upon a sidewalk within a business district; (2) Whenever any person is riding a bicycle upon a sidewalk, such person shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian and shall give audible signal before overtaking and passing such pedestrian; (3) No person shall ride a motorized bicycle upon a sidewalk.

In Illinois, if you are over the age of 12, you are required to bike in the street. Not that its stopped anyone from biking on the sidewalk.....

You have to come to america and spend a good week with people who love to joke around.  I think after a while you would pick it up.  Sarcasm is a huge key to most american humor.  It's a lot harder online to pick it up though...

this is one of the nice things about a community like this, you can get to really know people and how they talk and what jokes they make and etc.  so as long as you keep reading and talking to people I think you'll eventually figure it out!

Same here. Grin
A man walks into a bar. I can't remember the rest.
But here, I recall another one...

So, there's a Christian, a rabbi and a pagan on a boat. They have to get to the island across in order to get some supplies.
The rabbi starts praying and speaking some Jewish words and then walks on the water, gets to the island and then comes back again.
The Christian crosses himself, looks up in the sky and...he smoothly walks on the water. He reaches the island, takes his stuff and comes back to the ship.
Now, the pagan draws a pentagram, speaks some Celtic words and upon jumping on the water...he sinks.
"Shouldn't we just tell him about the rocks?", says the rabbi.
"What rocks?!", says the Christian.

I know, it was a harsh one. Grin

Theres a similar joke involving a Catholic Priest, an Orthodox Priest and a Rabbi but it didn't have the "What Rocks" attached to it.

Greetings!

There are some things I can't understand about theologians though I am playing this game for few months. I think someone more experienced can help me.


1. I am playing with Byzantine Empire and I couldn't find a way to raise my "Priest" to "Bishop" status. I only had one Bishop in the begining of the game named "Gavriel Branas" If I remember it correct. But after his death none of my Priests achieved the status to be Bishop even one of them had 9 points of piety.

Can anyone teach me how is the system works for Orthodox Priests to increase their rank?


2. Does hunting heretics is the only way to increase the "Piety" of my Priest?


3. My priest gain some different bonuses sometimes ( like : +1 violence, -1 Purity etc. ) What does they actually mean and neither their effects on my priest and my game.

Does anyone has complete list of them and their effect to my game?


4. Some theologians having "Unorthodox" title. Even my Orthodox Priest's having this kind ( etc:Vlasios the Unorthodox ). It looks like a joke but is it really something against Orthodox Church? What is the effect of that title?

My godfather is a Deacon and he's in a very good relationship with CoP's Primate - Metropolitan Savva. A few years ago he rented a bungalow by the sea and spent there holidays. CoP's Primate's holiday house was a few kilometres far from the place my godfather was living in so Metropolitan visited him once.

Imagine how it looked like for the strangers:
Black Lincoln arrives in frot of the bungalow. An elderly man in straw hat with cane goes out accompanied by a few men dressed in black. A family goes out from the bungalow and they all kiss the man in hand. Mafia Smiley

This is a true story:

Quite often, after Sunday liturgy, before the monastic house was built at his monastery, Fr would drive into the nearest town, along with the people who had attended liturgy, where they would have a light breakfast of coffee (and cake, for those who wished) at a bakery in the town. If the weather was pleasant, the group would sit at the outdoor tables under the trees. The folks at the bakery were quite used to the sight of this middle-aged priest-monk with long silver hair tied at the back, a long silver beard, wearing a black robe, a black cloth cap, with a large silver cross around his neck.

One sunny day, a squad of bikers on their Harley-Davidsons cruised slowly up the main street of the town, in full view of Fr and his little group. A few of them spotted him, and smiled and waved, some honking their horns as they rode by. The little group at the coffee shop could not keep themselves from laughing. Fr summed it up best: "I know I'm a brother, but not quite THAT sort of brother!" More laughter all round.

My spiritual father was walking through the city the other day and he was crossing a street, when a biker (big guy with beard and leather and etc.) drives by and gives him the middle finger and shouts out "hey father, bless this!"

There is a Hellenic Harley Motorcycle Club in Baltimore metro area.  They've been at the last couple of Greek Independence Day Parades.

I've seen at least half of the Hellenic Harley members at local Orthodox Churches.  If I rode a motorcycle, I'd join them.   Roll Eyes

Where I live, there used to be a "God Squad" of religious bikers, led by a Father Harry (I think he might have been RC, but too far back to really be sure).  Fr Harry might not have been Orthodox, but he was seriously cool.

One of the times when a priest could be very tempted to bless a human with the Blessing for Incense:   Grin

May thou be blessed by him in whose honour thou shalt burn.

Metropolitan Isaiah rides a Harley to his cathedral in Denver.  It is said that he was part of a biker gang in his past.  Not sure if there's any real truth to that part but i've seen him ride the bike personally...good times.
