Don't blame that shit on Eris. 

I thought having a cranky bitch goddess that you can blame all the shit that blindsides us on was the entire point of this religion?!



No, that's Christianity.

Yeah, but christianity requires that you trust that all the horrible shit is ultimately for the greater good, which requires more effort of faith in that you have to believe against the prima fascie truth that the goddess does this shit just for yuks...

No, there's also the whole "the devil made me do it" routine, beloved of hypocritical Baptists and Calvinists.

When Eris causes problems, civilizations die.

I can't see her being interested in one electrician that can't read a print, or one manager that can't communicate.

I predict a terrible ending to any Surprise Me Eris Experiment.

I don't want to give away any spoilers or anything, but don't be surprised if California falls into the sea.

That's kinda like saying "Surprise Me Charles Manson", come to think of it.

Except infinitely more varied.  There are only so many times Charlie can invite a gang of savages around your place and play games with cleavers and limbs until it gets...well, not boring exactly, but expected.

really? because that's where the lulz take place.

I mean there's big institutional lulz, like deciding that corporations are protected by the constitution just like people

and then there's the little things, like the recent Devival fiasco meltdown thread


She's got her fingers in lots of pies, no? I think Eris is in stitches all the time.

Yeah, but Hanlon's Razor explains all that without divine intervention.

No no guys, you're all confused.  Its the Devil that's in the details, not merely demonic-acting ancient Greek goddesses.

Pfffft, I'll blame Eris whenever I damn well please.

2/3rds of Greek Goddesses deserve it.

Ok....  Whilst drinking a glass of Dr Pepper, I thought "why not try this, just for the hell of it?"  Guess what happened?  22 Feb. 2010 at 5:05pm GMT  My supper caught on fire.  A gorgeous beef roast, with carrots and potatoes.  It was cooking away nicely, and I went into the kitchen to check on it to find the kitchen full of smoke.  Opened the oven door and saw flames.  Freaked out, grabbed the roasting tray, placed it on the counter top and covered it with a larger pan to put out the flames.  >_>

Bah, thats not a fire.  Once I had been up all night and decided to make prawn crackers for breakfast, and not only did the oil catch on fire in the saucepan, it then got sucked up into the extractor fan, causing that to die, but not before spitting flames across the ceiling and scorching everything within five foot.

That's a kitchen fire.

Its amazing I got a job where I cook food, really.  Or am allowed to handle sharp objects.

yeah, that is a very good kitchen fire.  But this is the first time I've had anything that was cooked in the oven catch on fire.  I mean, frying things in oil on a burner, the chances of a fire is fairly high. But in an electric oven set to 180 C? Plus it had only been in there for 3/4's of an hour. Still, it tastes rather good! :D
