loving these

Some of these sound like they may actually be worth dissecting and discussing in depth.. is that weird or what?  :lulz:

Agreed. I'm especially intrigued by this concept:
Discordian naturalism:  belief that the world can be explained through chaotic forces; i.e. Daddy tell me a bedtime story about Eris

I think some of the old Greeks like Heraclitus were on their way to something like that but most of his stuff is lost in time.
You cannot fathom the immensity of the fuck i do not give.

Fixed. Also, that's chaos for you.  :lulz:

Pragmatic Discordianism: No matter how exclusive you make the invites, Lady Discord will always show up to your party in one form or another.  The pragmatic Discordian looks for ways to make the best of it (as opposed to pretending she doesn't exist or erecting "No Drama Permitted" signs.)

Pessimistic Discordian: Everything is false, meaningless, or inconsistent in some sense.

Optimistic Discordianism: Everything is false, meaningless, or inconsistent in some sense, especially Pessimistic Discordianism.

I agree Cram, some of these seem worth deeper discussion!

The rest seem worthy of deeper LULZ

Maybe an Intermittens themed around this?

We have a stack of content for a 2011 in review and a meetup edition. We need an editor and were back in business.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.
