Unofficial "Is X a discordian" thread

In almost every case, unless X has publically admitted it, the answer is: "Maybe, how the hell should we know?" That is, unless the person died prior to the 1950s, in which case almost certainly not.

X is the roman numeral for 10, which is two times five.

Hence, X is discordian.

If you're going to be pedantic, you should try to be RIGHT. Your correction makes no sense.

I think Enki meant "X is two discordians," but forgot the "is".
Such a conclusion was derived from the fact that ten was said to be two times five.
Two fives = two Discordians.
Clear enough?

The question is "is X a discordian?"

Since the question is posed with the subject in singular, it is evident that "X" stands for the name of an individual. When you Lo5 "X", the answer to the question posed is evidently yes.

In other words, 000's joke was totally funny, and Enki's attempt at pedantry was not only unfunny, but also semantically incorrect.

Well, that was dumb.

In almost every case, unless X has publically admitted it, the answer is: "Maybe, how the hell should we know?" That is, unless the person died prior to the 1950s, in which case almost certainly not.
Is it ok to say that people who have Erisian tendencies in recent times are Discordianesque ("in the style or manner of Discordians") and people that died before the 1950s were proto-Discordians ("the earliest form of Discordians")? For example, George Carlin and Douglas Adams would be Discordianesque while Heraclitus and Albert Camus would be proto-Discordians.
You cannot fathom the immensity of the fuck i do not give.

This thread confirms my (very) low opinion of Enki's intellect.

actually I got his joke

it is evident that X was being treated as a roman numeral, hence two fives, hence two discordians.



this is a tough crowd!

Oh, I got it just fine, I just thought it was ruined in delivery because it was presented as pedantry, but was semantically incorrect.
