I'm new, sad, angry and bring a warning.
« on: October 14, 2017, 12:55:43 am »
Hello fellow disco-fagsfreaks (how do you guys greet each other?),
you perhaps read the title of this thread and think who is this guy and why is he bothering us? Well let me explain:
It all started a week ago I was reading the Illuminatus Triology and decided to buy Principia Discordia. When it got delivered (together with The Book of the Subgenius and another book which I won't reveal) I got really excited and started reading it immediately. Then my third nostril sniffed something wrong about the text. When I was half way through I started looking online and found this site.
I checked the online version of the book and to my surprise the book is supposed to have pictures. Suddenly everything became clear and I understood why the text was so badly formatted. I got scammed :argh!:

I warn everybody not to buy the version published by Pacific Publishing Studio
This is the cover:


Well atleast it caused me some confusion but mostly sadness.

Are you guys aware of this version? Is this part of OM? Is Pacific Publishing Studio trying to undermine Eris and perhaps part of the Illuminati?

To be fair, it's generally a bad idea to read any version of the PD. But for sure one without pictures should be avoided.

Hello fellow disco-fags (how do you guys greet each other?),


And just like that, I stopped reading.

oh come on, give the guy a break. it's how the internet talks now. you know, intentionally offensive and edgy because god forbid you be mistaken for someone with any amount of respect for other people since that would make you seem weak. and discordia is obviously a blanket justification for doing whatever it takes to get a rise out of people since it's all about being, like, non-conformist and meta. or whatever.

This is why I hate FB discordians.  Jonathan Bost is more or less the spokesman for an entire generation of cadmium-poisoning victims.

(Blank)-fag is so 2008, anyway. If you're gonna be an edgelord at least keep up with where the edge is.

Also that sounds infuriating about the book. I suggest Holy Nonsense to soothe your eyemeats.

Edge-lording has always been the bane of "weird" groups.  Discordians, Subgenius, Pastafarians, Last Thursdayists, you name it.  You can't have a fun joke without someone using it as an excuse to vent their petty bigotry or - as has been seen here more than once - to get their crazy stalker on.

The Subgenii ancients refer to it as the "kook factor".

Oh yeah, I bought this version of the book about a year ago or so. Intensely disappointing. I don't even know where that copy is; I think I gave it away and repressed the memory of buying it in the first place until now.

My first version of the PD was a hypertext version - didn't have images either.

It was okay though - when you find the version with pix, you can re-read it and get a totally new sense of it.

Wait, people actually read the PD? Like, the words and stuff?

I always just drank a bottle of Benadryl and freaked the fuck out over the pictures.
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left.

Buying any version of the PD is a terrible mistake.

Hey bugger off, you can't be "new". I am "new". If we were both "new" we would be "news" and that would be plain retarded. Not that I care, but it might affect your reproductive abilities. You wanna get laid, yes?
