Basement-dwelling pseudo-otaku with a thrill for forecasting on the side.

This is actually something I've seriously considered on more than one occasion; in fact, there's been nary a year since I became an atheist where I haven't thought about fasting for Lent. I obviously don't feel any obligation to do so out of some misguided devotion to a (in my mind) likely nonexistent deity, I just think it could be an interesting experiment. I guess a somewhat nerdy (but hopefully accurate) analogy would be like the intensive devotion and rigor a Jedi must undertake in the Star Wars universe; getting rid of attachments, as it were.
Anyone want to chime in with their thoughts and opinions? I'm not yet sure if I'm gonna do it this year, but I might. Not sure what I'd fast, though, nor am I completely certain if one is officially required to fast exclusively food.
