Lister: "There is no such thing as 'Silicon Heaven'.
Kryten: Then where do all the calculators go?
Lister: They don't go anywhere. They just die.
Kryten: Surely you believe that God is in all things? Aren't you a pantheist?
Lister: Yeah, but I just don't think it applies to kitchen utensils. I'm not a FRYING pantheist. Computers and calculators do not have an afterlife. You don't get hairdryers with tiny little wings, sitting on clouds and playing harps.
Kryten: But of course you do. For is it not written in the Electronic Bible, "The Iron shall lie down with the Lamp".

I was thinking about a new thread altogether rather than hijacking the intro one.
Perhaps a discussion on silicon heaven being any more unlikely than human heaven?
What is the record for the longest intro thread?

He's an android.  His brain couldn't handle the concept of there being no silicon heaven.

It's my intro thread, so unless the mods see a problem with the "off-topicness", I have no issue with the current theme.

It's your thread, buckaroo.  The only policy we have for intro threads is no debating.  That's to keep things from getting out of hand prematurely.

Well I don't agree with that. I think we should be allowed to debate in intro threads..... ;D

If you initiate it and explicitly condone it, I do not see the problem.  The reason for the rule is we ran off a lot of xians by jumping on them in their intro threads.  They never got out of the gate.
