If you've ever described yourself as "quite spiritual", do civilisation a favour and punch yourself in the throat until you're incapable of speaking aloud ever again.

Slightly ridiculous really.
Who on earth would describe themselves as "Quite spiritual"?

Bit of a 'no shit sherlock' comment in my opinion?

(and rather aptly enough, the word verification letters I'm having to type in the box to get this comment published spell out JACHSY).

I assume you're kidding with the question. If not, the answer is: a ridiculously large number of people. Check out the sales figres for the, hem hem, "New Age" therapy/self-help books. They're pretty healthy. Unlike the brains of those who buy them.

Rather like saying the accident was "a bit fatal".
Nonsensical to me, on ALL geosynclinic substrata...
