"In bullshit flowers grow, and that's beautiful"
« on: October 15, 2016, 09:05:38 pm »
I just wanted to post this quote because it's my favorite out of PD. It very succinctly illustrates what it means (to me, partially) to be Discordian.

To give an example, think of a form of bullshit you subscribe to. We all do it, don't kid yourself. A good example of bullshit is EVERY RELIGION (including this one).

Now, really, if you think about it, every religion is bullshit. When we say that, it is often taken negatively, but I don't think it should be.

Art is bullshit. What purpose does it serve except to entertain the viewer? Same with videogames, movies, porn, poetry, this forum, booze, weed, tobacco, TV, and every type of food that is inefficiently made. If we got rid of bullshit, yes, we'd be more efficient at getting shit done. But we'd get rid of all the shit we enjoy. What would be the point?

I think religion should be enjoyed like a joint, or like weed in general, or like any substance or any habit. Beautiful things come from religion. Art, music, communal love of one another, giving to the poor, etc. are all things done by religious institutions, and promoted by many religious doctrines.

I think that you (yes YOU!) can enjoy religion, and it's benefits, without being a dick. Jesus is an inspiring character, regardless of his actual existence. How stupid is it not to listen to someone's message just because they might not exist? I mean, if it's a good message, it's a good message.

You wanna know the real proof though of BS growing flowers. "If it's true for you it's true". That was Tom Cruise in a leaked Scientology video. I'm not a scientologist, but I love that phrase. And that was coming from a church founded for money to scam people, which in it's time, has harmed many people. But the idea is a good idea.

Yes, religion is bullshit. But the bullshit grows flowers, so how bad is it?

It's bad because I'm left regretting it :I Could've done more than with my time than
play some bullshit like an addict, only to walk off with sore feet and a hazy recollection
of it all. If I didn't have to drop it abruptly, just to live, it'd be great.


Work = moneh
Bullshit = you - moneh
WHICH IS WHY I GOTTA CUT THE BULLSHIT TO BUY MORE BULLSHIT  :cry:

I'd tell that mudafuka to stop shooting roaches, and decipher that sentence.
Not sure if I'm reading figure of speeches, or not. You.. you know what you're doing.

You gotta have something to sell.  Dollars are the easiest thing.

No, you gotta discount the EBT too much.  Dollars.

This, right here, is powerful truth.

Take, for example, an all-pay auction setup. It's easy to get suckers involved and the model can be applied to all sorts of crap. You may be familiar with it's most popular current incarnation, political lobbying. As soon as one person pays, everyone's fucked. And one person always fucking pays because there's an obvious benefit. As soon as that happens, sunk cost fallacies and all sorts of other idiot head tricks keep you giving money to the magic people who can make things happen until you go broke and they move on to the next set of suckers. Or the next game, depending on how much money they took.

I can't connect the two. Can you explain it out?

In short, an All pay auction is one in which EVERYONE pays, not just the winner. It's only possible to win by not playing. Unfortunately, if you don't play, the other side wins by default.

Covers it fairly nicely.

AHhh, I get it. I had no idea lobbyists would be interested in paying up into legislative to repeal
opposing lobbyists. Ridiculously easy money, if it's getting fed to you. I thought it'd naturally be
foolish to pay up, but didn't consider the seller's viewpoint. By delivering, they'd get rep, which would
just give them more business.

But, what defuq is Roger actually selling? Can't dollars just be replaced with products surrounded by unjustified hype?

Roger is selling dollars. He may be selling the same dollar multiple times but it's pretty legit. I'm selling the secrets of how to obtain those dollars at reasonable prices to allow profitable resale.

Dollars can be exchanged for goods or services at a wide range of outlets. This is not our business though, we're just in the dollars and secrets of dollars trade. With our help and a small fee, you can explore the entire world of capitalism and not worry about finance.

Don't delay! Next 3 purchasers get a 10% discount and signed t-shirt!
