Plus, we found that most of us like gallows humor, anyway.

Silly's point is a good one. I think a thread should be made to call out for "Teh Silly"...

Should I do it?

And good thread, Guys...I think this was needed, esp when guys like that Laz show up and get it backward and insided out.

we tried

forced funnay = teh contrived and unfunnay

You don't have to force to solicit.  Soliciting means:  gimme something if you have it or are already thinking of it and it's germinating.

Anyway, to keep from td'ing this thing further...I'll start a thread and the discussion can move there.  This thread is too important to mess that up with.

Only just noticed and read the bip now.

Let me tell everyone among you who might care that I think it's very well-written.

It's also quite dark. It's funny how you can make an old goth like me feel like Barbie in comparison!

I'm off to write about smiles and lollipops now. Toodles!

Hmm, just some thoughts...

Read a little of BIP, due to its "print nature" and me not really in the best position to print atm, I skimmed it and got a bit of the gist of it.

I think, if it's any aim to "update" the PD with BIP, then it's definitely off the mark so far, but maybe I misread what the BIP is intended for.
In any case, I suppose it wouldn't make for a bad *companion* guide to the PD, it seems to me though, that BIP is trying to *explain* things, where as PD was more a *pointer* to things. As it is said, "The Tao that can be spoken is not the true and eternal Tao".

All I can really say is, as a *relatively* young person  (in comparison to the ages of the people who wrote the PD anyway) living in Aus, I still find PD very relavent, and theres little that I cannot truely grasp due to culture/age difference.

In anycase, I'll give it a better read later, and I may change my mind about a few things, I don't know.
But in anycase, do what thou wilt, for I don't give a stuff. It should be interesting in any case.

Lys, the BIP by itself wasn't supposed to replace the PD. 

The BIP is an expansion and re-interpretation on the RAW (and others) concept of "reality maps".  We kept extrapolating on it, and it sort of took over for a while.

There are mumblings that we should work on other aspects, but no breakthroughs as of yet.



I'm curious, in what ways do you think BIP "misses the mark"?

Truthfully, I really don't know. I skimmed it. I *think* got the jist of it. I may change my mind. Was just thoughts, none of which I've really mind up my mind upon.

Not to sound self-important, but "skimming" it won't really work.


In fact, I think most of the arguments on this board come from people skimming someone's rant/thread, and then bringing up an objection that was already addressed.
