I've actually worked as officemates with some Muslim engineers. Very peaceful fellows. No fights at all about religion, just give them a room where they can go pray five times a day, and don't insist they try the pork appetizers. I've even had lunch with them and ordered baby back ribs, with no problem at all. Very similar to Mormons I've worked with. They don't mind at all if you drink, they just order a soft drink.

One place there were Hindoo, Buddhist, Muslim, Christian, Atheist, and maybe even a Sikh or two. We all got along fine. The Muslims seemed a lot more normal than the Hindoo guys. Like no elephant god figurines hanging from their rear-view mirrors!

We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
