    We had a supply teacher at school who was a freemason. Not a single thing was learnt in his lessons because everyone was too busy trying to convince him to let us shake his hand.

    You can apply at your local lodge. You'll sit through an interview. Google to find where it is.

    Anyone here a freemason doing freemason-y things? Can you tell me? Tee hee. Societies are funny.
    As far as i know, the only way to be one is for them to invite you.

    you need to be invited by a existing members, you can't just join.

    would be damn useful to be one, for the contacts.

    Bunch of oversized infants full of their own self-importance holding secret meetings to give their cronies a leg-up at the expense of others. What's the attraction?

    My uncles a freemason, :P so was my grandad, (he was a master mason), tbh i'd just join for the contacts you can gain from being a freemason, seeing as it opens many doors (that's what my uncle told me) although I probably would fail to attend most of the meetings, and would get let go lol it reminds me of that stonecutters Simpsons episode, especially seeing as my uncle uses a secret handshake to get in and show that he's a genuine member.

    learn the freemason handshake, then go around shaking people's hands until you find a freemason, who then invites you to their lodge. Then reveal you're only a wannabe mason and ask to be let in. It might work.
