Just to clarify:  This isn't an official image. I made it for fun because on the surface the project seemed pretty cool and I felt it was a fair participatory replacement to a request for an interview from Placid Dingo. I come here to find a thread which reveals there is far more backstory to this than I could ever hope to figure out.

Yeah, it wouldn't be a Discordian project without a load of broken hearts.

I just wanted to read the end product, from what I've seen It's Smashing :)!

Especially since Dingo sacrificed his standing here for journalistic integrity.

Not true.  It wasn't journalistic integrity, it was "control".

Which he thought everybody was trying to wrest from him by refusing to participate because Loveshade was involved.

It is ultimately his project, and he can maintain whatever control he wants over it.

That control comes at a cost though. Not the least which of being that Roger is probably one of the most notable contemporary Discordian thinkers, and Loveshade being an anomaly.

I mean, yeah, if he wants to show the very obscure dark side of Discordia and call it journalistic integrity, then, ok.

But he is automatically cutting himself off from relevancy in the process.

Balls.  Roger is one asshat among many asshats.  Thing is, he cut off 80% of the asshats, to please a pedo cult leader.

How does this affect my shares in RogerCorp?

Supply of RogerTM has never been so low, whilst we are in the midst of unprecedented demand. The basic economics are there for a canny individual to make an absolute killing on the trading floor. But let's talk about why investment in RogerCorp is a good long-term play.

RogerTM is an aspirational product that promises to fundamentally change the way the American public looks at their daily entertainment, nutritional, educational and back hair related needs. It satisfies a niche in the market not covered by tinned foodstuffs, over the counter medication and over 90% of magazine publications. RogerTM's patented technology is highly unlikely to be developed by our competitors for at least 15 years, by which time we will have established an unshakable foothold and fundamentally shifted the paradigm of the great American publics perception of life, death and even money.

It's so necessary for our glorious future that investing in RogerCorp should be legally required at this point.

It seems worth noting that shares of Rogercorp reaching this all time high was the result of your typical "Pump and Dump" scam.

Rogercorp executives were last seen selling all shares and boarding an aircraft for an unknown destination. The reasons for the trip were unclear but they seemed to be carrying large sacks with dollar signs. The significance of this has yet to be determined.

Gladys, 104, invested her entire wealth into Rogercorp and now has to go back to work in the mines.

Brokers are advising everyone to invest in Nigelcorp ASAP to mitigate losses.
