It’s Not Unusual

“Patience is one of the characteristics of monastic life, but even the patience of the brothers was being tested by our slow Internet.”

Father Daniel Van Santvoort, Cistercian monk, on his Welsh island community’s decision to get broadband

I came across this quote the other day and was amazed that even monks are getting a little antsy in todays fast paced internet age. Perhaps they were looking for available Nuns in their area. It’s either that or dial up is just too damn slow to load up those Tom Jones vids on YouTube.

  1. That’s hilarious.. I can imagine monks throwing a fit and cussing because their download timed out….

    Something tells me she’s not a real nun….

    We’re about to get fiber optic *happy dance*

    Hells yeah. – Evyl

  2. What a disgrace! Back in my day, the monks didn’t have the internet. They had feathers for pens and used their own blood for inkl LOL. I love the Tom Jones video and the little “jumps” he does to emphasize the music as he is singing.

    If I had panties on, I’d be throwing them at the screen. – Evyl
    PS – Not really but it was all that I could think of to say.

  3. This is the first time I’ve ever wanted a nun !

    If only I could say the same. Thanks for dropping in dude. I checked out the Butlik mp3s from your sidebar. Kickass stuff dude. -Evyl

  4. Doktor Holocaust Says:

    my church needs more nuns like that. We already have several dozen, but new nuns are always welcome.

    One can never have to many nuns. – Evyl

  5. Average Chick Says:

    I could just hear confessions now…

    “Bless me father…”

    “WTF!! IT JUST LOCKED UP ON A PIC I’VE BEEN DOWNLOADING FOR 5 MINUTES!!”

    “Umm..what??”

    “WHAT ELSE DO YOU THINK I DO WHILE SITTING IN THIS CLOSET WAITING TO HEAR HOW YOU SWORE 3 TIMES?? IT’S NOT EVERYDAY THAT SOMEONE COMES IN TELLING ME HOW THEY CHEATED ON THEIR SPOUSE! I NEED TO ENTERTAIN MYSELF SOMEHOW!”

    “Well, alrighty then…..”

    You know they are just bored as shit waiting for the good stuff. – Evyl

  6. Did you see that story about that man that wants to do a nun beauty contest? ha I think that’s hysterical.

    Hoping you’ll be a guest picker again this season, how is Tech going to be?

    I haven’t heard about the contest. I hope it’s televised.

    Tech didn’t look to shiny but they got the win. They are ranked 12th in the country right now. Hopefully they won’t go to shit. I’d love to be a guest picker. – Evyl

  7. I wonder if my posting of a Tom Jones video blew up YouTube?

  8. a nun like that would make me convert
    but i would still be a pervert

    Some things are better unchanged. – Evyl
