"Everyone is Discord.  Few are Discordians."

I think everyone has that potential.  Many are shut-off from it and need some kind of "jail-breaking" process to become aware of it.  Even if they never give it that label of "Discordianism". 
Cynicism is a blank check for failure.

Pretty sure that was the second thing.  The first one had to do with Lady Gaga, Ru Paul, and a mechanical agitator.

"Lady Gaga, Ru Paul, and a mechanical agitator"... isn't that simply another definition of Discordian?  :lulz:

Completely lacking a sense of humor, I think, qualifies you for non-Discordian membership.

I know the Buddhists have some absolutes that refer to the human condition and I made a joke about it on Facebook (can't remember what they were). My comment ended with ... You may be a Buddhist.

A Buddhist friend pulled me up on it and pointed out that I wasnt talking about Buddhists but the condition of all humankind. So when we talk about our understanding of the human condition, the same applies- everyone is a pope, but that's our way of expressing the human condition (autonomy). But if someone rejects that truth and follows another authority, I think it's fair to say there're not a discordian.

But you know every religion does this; you can't be gay/slutty/whatever and still a Christian- but of course, you can. And I think any of our sentences that start with 'you can't be...' are equally doomed.

However, depending on your personal dis orris there's various degrees of doin' it wrong.
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.

What Makes You Not a Discordian?

I tried bleach, alcohol, drugs, screaming, sandpaper, acid scrubs, heat guns ... IT WON'T COME OFF!!!

If anyone figures this out, I'll be over there in the corner, rocking gently back and forth.






But seriously,
When the Monkey takes over.
This bears thought.  90%+ people are on monkey-pilot 90%+ of the time, and we consider them Discordians.It makes you a primate, rather than a human, but does it keep you from being a Discordian?

Hmm.  It may be that I'm just an elitist bastard.  Sure, sure, "Everyone is a Discordian", and all that.  I guess I just feel that a Discordian(LMNO) is someone who knows about the monkey, and tries to be a biped.

I don't know. If the monkey takes over, do you stop being a Discordian? Sooner or later you'll realize and the biped gets back behind the steering wheel, and you're still a Discordian.

I would personally say, when the monkey takes over, indefinitely.

Of course that makes it kind of inexact, cause you never know when someone will stay some way forever, and even if you go for a couple of years being a complete and utter shitslinging monkey, then for some reason pop back to bipedalism, I'd agree they stopped being a Discordian for some years.

I'm okay with this inexactness, it's not super-important to have a strict definition for this.

It's just that, even if you're trying your utmost best to be a biped, nobody can manage that all the time. In fact, it can happen quite often, and I don't believe such a person would be a "traffic light Discordian", switching on and off every so often.

The Monkey will always take any opportunity to jump in the driving seat. We shouldn't expect any less. That doesn't stop you from being a Discordian. The Monkey, despite everything, wants to "Be like you, ooh ooh". And that's as it should be.

But if the biped defers to the Monkey, gives him the car keys, and then expects to be driven from A-B like it was a fucking Taxi service? Well, that might be outlandishly unconventional, especially for other Monkeys, in a kind of "King Louie" way, but there ain't no room in my Discordia for that kind of stupidity.

Mowgli didn't abandon the Seonee pack to go and live among the Bandar Log, he was dragged off. And he never gave it the old "We be of one blood, you and me" call to the Monkeys who captured him, but to Chil, the Kite. "Mans Red Flower" is not something you can just "give" to Monkeys. It's the same with golden apples. A Monkey would just eat that apple, in order to make some new shit to fling at the other Monkeys.

And that isn't Discordian at all. A Man may lapse into Monkey mode from time, but only a Monkey would want to stay like that.
