Better luck next time...

Happy 4-19 everyone!

The Catholics now have a new pope, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger is now Pope Benedict XVI. My campeign for the papacy has been a rather small and unremarkable one, as less than 100 people knew that I was running. Since he's 78, I doubt he'll be breaking any records for longest serving popes. Now I have more time to setup my new campeign for being the next pope.

On a more important note, AMD is now shipping their 'Revision E' Hammer core processors which mean better overclocking with less heat. With the addition of SSE3 to the chips they may now show higher performance on applications taylored to the Pentium 4. And with the moble Turion64 chips being released as a strong contender to the Pentium M I am now considering buiding a laptop for my next system.

How? You aren't a Lord (or rather, Lady) Cardinal.

you know you can't have a wife or anything when you are pope.

He could retire when he wants to get married. Or he could even change that custom.

I don't know though... Neemund being the Pope would be... different to say the least.

In the Catholic church it is possible to have married clergy. If a man was married before he enters seminary they won't force him to have a divorce to become a priest. There are very few though, and I don't think there are any married bishops or cardinals but I'm not positive about that.

And yes, a pope can change any custom of the church that he wishes since he is believed to speak for God and is suppsedly infallable.
