Does this make G_d a "twit"?
(I wonder if the Western Wall is held up by all the paper stuck into the cracks over the years.
Do they have someone who comes around and "recycles" the paper?
Or maybe there's a collector and we'll see JP-IIs prayer on eBay when he's canonized.
The thoughts that enter my mind when it doesn't have enough coffee...)

It gets even stranger. The australian government is sponsoring a project in which you can send a tweet to the aliens. They plan on broadcasting them into outer space.
