On a related note, don't read the Principia Discordia or anything else on www.sacred-texts.com as their stuff is without exception missing illustrations and badly formatted in general

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

Don't buy the Steve Jackson Games version because he's a horrible, horrible person.

It sounds like there's a story behind this. What is it?

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.

Why is it a bad idea to read it?

Which is of course because it is the copyright intellectual property of its author Steve "Abdul Alhazred" Jackson

He's a callous, soulless opportunist.  I dunno, I think he just liked the imagery and trappings of Discordia to sell games and stuff, but could give a lick about the actual philosophy.

Nobody gives a fuck about the actual philosophy.  I hate him because he was clumsy about the whole heist.

You're not the current Spiritual Leader of all Discordia, that job goes to the most recent registered member of the board.

That's the most sensible thing I've ever heard. Anywhere. Hold on while I make a new account.

You actually want that responsibility? I can recall a couple of times that attitude has backfired in history. There's also a small chance of infinite wealth so I guess it balances out. Go for it, just remember to have me shot before I can organize a coup.
