I didn't feel like registering right now, but I did the blogspot ones and bragging-rights-to-first-person-to-identify-t. Two to go! I'll try and do those tomorrow.

Brief idea, to be fleshed out later
This does sound like a good idea.

confuse / amuse (there should be a word for that)
Is "bemuse" close enough?

i do not want to derail this project

but

what if we as discordians showed up where people were discussing Eris in a non-discordian context? astronomy, ancient history, etc

also cool!


furthermore we really should write up some religious brew-ha hah about the planet Eris. I don't know of any cults obsessed with it yet, it'd be nice to get in on the ground floor.

Brief idea, to be fleshed out later

I have a google alert set up to ping me every time somebody on the googleweb mentions Discordianism. It doesn't generate a huge amount of buzz.


Wouldn't it be funny if a bunch of us dedicated ourselves to showing up every time somebody has a forum conversation or blog post about Eris?

there's about 1-3 hits per day, most of which point to the same places over and over again. We'd only need to hit those places once.



So what would we do in these comments?

a few different options:

1. just comment like you would normally, using your normal name
2. absurdist pineal woo woo talk
3. make up a fake identity and post as him/her

the point here is NOT to troll people.

the point is to
---create the illusion (read: reality) that the Discordian Society is real, and it's out there, listening.
---reward people for talking about Discordianism.
---confuse / amuse (there should be a word for that) people who were not expecting the Discordian inquisition


If I get FIVE count em FIVE votes of confidence ITT, I'll begin posting links. Your mission will be to go to the link, create an account (if necessary), and comment.


Once you have replied to at least five links, you will be an official member of the

I thought the point was to sort of do it on recent things? That post is from more than a year ago.

If we can find an emphemeris with Eris's apparent orbit taken into consideration, we can look for some sort of alignment or entrance into a sign and come up with some sort of prophecy that is supposed to unfold at that point. We can back up the science behind it by back projecting similar conditions and finding something of historical significance around that time to corroborate this effect. LO5 in action.
