Has just come through my door! It's an infringement of my rights dammit! It's not like it occurs every 10 years and gives the government an idea of what services they need to put money in to and how much...

I bet it's Obama's fault.


So tell me, what should I put in the religion field?

Because they'd have to pay someone to do that and my taxes would increase for it.

Go ahead and do it, and if they question you, you'll just have to do it again. I doubt etchasketch penis will get you jail time

The fine for not completing and returning a 2011 Census questionnaire is up to £1,000. You may also have to pay costs.

The amount of the fine for not completing the 2011 Census questionnaire will be determined in each individual case by the magistrate.

The fine is subject to level 3 on the standard scale under the Criminal Justice Act.

Any revision to the Criminal Justice Act could change the fine for an offence under the Census Act 1920.

Ouch.

Looks like I'm not going to be drawing penises in the fields.

Pfft, that's just a fine for not completing it. There's nothing regarding penis pictures.

If you refuse to give out the information or you deliberately give inaccurate information, you can be in legal trouble. According to United States Code, Title 13 (Census), Chapter 7 (Offenses and Penalties), SubChapter II, if you're over 18 and refuse to answer all or part of the Census, you can be fined up to $100. If you give false answers, you're subject to a fine of up to $500. If you offer suggestions or information with the "intent to cause inaccurate enumeration of population," you are subject to a fine of up to $1,000, up to a year in prison, or both. Here's the official verbiage:

221. Refusal or neglect to answer questions; false answers

* (a) Whoever, being over eighteen years of age, refuses or willfully neglects, when requested by the Secretary, or by any other authorized officer or employee of the Department of Commerce or bureau or agency thereof acting under the instructions of the Secretary or authorized officer, to answer, to the best of his knowledge, any of the questions on any schedule submitted to him in connection with any census or survey provided for by subchapters I, II, IV, and V of chapter 5 of this title, applying to himself or to the family to which he belongs or is related, or to the farm or farms of which he or his family is the occupant, shall be fined not more than $100.

* (b) Whoever, when answering questions described in subsection (a) of this section, and under the conditions or circumstances described in such subsection, willfully gives any answer that is false, shall be fined not more than $500.

* (c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this title, no person shall be compelled to disclose information relative to his religious beliefs or to membership in a religious body.

Sec. 222. Giving suggestions or information with intent to cause inaccurate enumeration of population

Whoever, either directly or indirectly, offers or renders to any officer or employee of the Department of Commerce or bureau or agency thereof engaged in making an enumeration of population under subchapter II, IV, or V of chapter 5 of this title, any suggestion, advice, information or assistance of any kind, with the intent or purpose of causing an inaccurate enumeration of population to be made, shall be fined not more than $1,000 or imprisoned not more than one year, or both.

I'm not sure how legit this is, but it seems likely that we'd be shafted with the same stick.

So fuck you Bissen!

The census is the government giving you the oppurtunity to exercise your creative writing skills.

The government does NOT need any information about my religion, my age, my sex my race or even my fucking name.

That's all they need to know to do what the US census was intended for.....drawing of districts for elections.

Well the religion field is optional...

I guess that's a step in the right direction.

By race, but certainly not religion-wise. If I had to go with what I was raised with rather than my actual beliefs it would be Christian, Church of England.

the same conclusion here. Keeping the masses fed and entertained (old roman "bread and circuses") is quite enough to prevent them from revolting against even the most outrageous displays of power abuse. But, for good or bad, the good times are slowly coming to an end...

I want to add that Cameron has said that this would be the last ever census here. Because apparently the system is archaic and there are far better alternatives.

Guess you were right Rachsucht.

what about filling it out properly, but draw each letter and word out of little penises.

Would take some time, but whoever read it would get a facefull of cocks telling them all the information they ever wanted to know.

It's original intention for only for the drawing of districts for elections. it's been perverted for much more than that.

I skated on mine actually. no home phone, and nobody came by while I was home.
