  • I'm sure some ex-CathInfo members and enemies will get a kick out of this one -- I, for one, got a chuckle out of it.

    Quote from: Google
    British propaganda of the time depicted Napoleon as of smaller than average height and the image of him as a small man persists in modern Britain. His actual height was about 1.7m (5 feet 7 inches), average height for the time or slightly taller.


    I am also 5'7"

  • "The English follow the principle that when one lies, it should be a big lie, and one should stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous."--Joseph Goebbels

    Goebbels probably not the best choice but it is a quote I remember.

    In Texas?

     :cowboy:

    That would be a hard habit to develop, when that behavior would result in dehydration and heat stroke about 10 months out of the year.

    No, sorry to disappoint, but my stature is the beginning and ending of my similarity to Napoleon...

    Yeah, suure. And when you scratch your stomach, you stick your hand in between shirt buttons. I know you!

  • Here's a 15 year old picture of me. I'm the one on the far right.

    The 2 closest to me are also named Matthew. The one right next to me is the Canadian author of the "Life in the Seminary is like the movie Platoon" thread.

    The one next to him (grinning at the camera) is from Oregon. He's quite handy with a log splitter -- I guess everyone has to be when you live in a state that is almost completely forested. He was the only classmate older than me, until Sean Johnson (yes, "that" Sean Johnson) arrived at the beginning of my class's First Year. (Most of my class started out in Zero Year, a.k.a. "Humanities") Why am I so aware of age/rank? Because in the seminary, age/rank is very much acknowledged. It determines where you sit in choir, so your "place" is always apparent. Even within the same class, everyone is ranked according to age. The seminary is a strict hierarchy. Eat your heart out, Democracy!

    The one next to him (second from the left) is the brother of an SSPX priest. The SSPX priest is this man's younger brother, and his German last name begins with an F.

    The first on the left just recently left the religious life (brother) in the SSPX. He was a seminarian or brother for almost 15 years. Imagine returning to the world after THAT!

    These were all classmates of mine. The same year as Fr. Riccomini.

  • Trads are a real variety pack -- just look at this photo after the Nov 2015 visit of Bp. Faure to Stella Maris Chapel.

    I mean, the 3 Trads (excluding the priest/bishop) in this picture aren't even in the same BALL PARK when it comes to clothing style. More like 3 different planets...

    I'm the one on the far left. I'll admit I look the dorkiest, and dress the poorest, of the 3 laymen pictured. I have a face for radio, and a voice for writing books! hahaha

    I guess Trads just dare to be different!

    I've read that several times.   Quite a story.

    Never pictured you looking like that, Matthew.
