I feel that it is worth mentioning that LMNO never told us who the fuck pays physicists.

After doing a bit of digging, turns out it's... Philosophy Departments.


Huh.  Go figure.

I've just thought of a cool forum mod, if anyone can be arsed, compile a database of PD memes with links to the thread where they either started or were best explained/debated/hashed out, etc. Then parse any posts for keywords (BIP, "Fart Huffing" and the like) if found, convert the phrase to a link to the "definition" topic. Anyone new wants to know wtf something means they can click.

We've been bouncing something similar around, but your way is, I think, better.

We could also link to various things in the intro thread.

Like the Barstool halfpage & Big Words! You guys had talked it to death in a lot of places, but LMNO had a reasonable summary he'd written for some other new spag and I yoinked that for infecting people. This sounds like it'd be a fun scavenger hunt!

And it works, because Cainad can attest, those are almost precisely the exact words I used to describe the Barstool Experiment to my wife this past Sunday afternoon, as if it was lodged in my consciousness.

She liked it, btw.

Huh.  Go figure.

I knew it.  Those bastards.  Plato's Cave, indeed.  Imagine you're in a ruin, and the only thing you can see are the shadows burned into the walls, so all you know is THIS IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU FUCK WITH US and you can never really be free of this delusion because it's real and also because there are always more nukes and at some level you know that FUCKING WITH US ISN'T ACTUALLY NECESSARY.

True fact. It's a pretty durable narrative, probably because it involves smacking people.

First time seeing the OP:

Based on moderate reading of Korzybski, whom I understand to be the Father of General Semantics, I get the impression that these "General Semanticists" haven't a fucking clue what Korzybski meant by anything he said. As far as I know, Korzybski was not a Solipsist (These nerds appear to be) by any stretch of the imagination, and his explanation of his ideas seemed to go in the exact opposite direction of such conclusions. It appears to me, at this time, that it may be pointless to argue with any modern Semanticist, since they don't seem to understand their own argument, probably.
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

If there is anything still worthy of hate, it is for those whom persist in doubting the existence of a world out there.

Questioning shit that is apparent can yield future progress. Taking it at face value is what get's shit done right now. So yeah, maybe there is no tangible universe out there and, at some point in the future, this will be a really powerful paradigm. In the meantime I get to smash people in the face with barstools.

It's win/win  :lulz:

I mean: they question, the universe answers.  I wouldn't get in the way of that. :lulz:
