I like and dislike the Chao. I like it because it is overtly symbolic in a way that makes people try to figure out what it means. I dislike it because it is overtly symbolic in a way that makes people try to figure out what it means.

I like the Five-Fingered Hand of Eris, because:

1. It has a cool-sounding name
2. It's neat-looking
3. It's neither a hand, nor does it have five fingers
4. ???
5. PROFIT!

I'd like to see more symbols presented; I especially like the idea of adopting the circle-slash as a Discordian symbol. Probably the Bobites are already using it though. Maybe that's a bonus?

You know, the international symbol for "no".

I'm not sure where this discussion has gone and I'm not reading 5 pages, but I really do like the black swan posted on the first page.
Or are we past that?

Nah, it's still doable.

Weird though.  You're reading a message board without really liking to read?

I skip the middle of some posts.  Sometimes I have to go back and read because its too confusing . . . all too often I don't need to catch up at all.  So, I understand.

Yeah, but I dunno.  Posting in threads is so reliant on each post building on what's already been said.  If you don't take it all in (within reason.  Some shit you just can't read.) and respond to the thread as a body of work, then you're just sort of giving yourself crappy tunnel for no reason.

Just because you're an excellent masturbator does not qualify you to be in a relationship.
