Isn't that where we are?
Hmmm, looking at the horizon I have to admit you are right. It doesn't seem curved at all!

Obviously we're getting smarter because we're more depressed.
Now that I could believe, depression keeps distracting emotions away. There is no fear failure strong enough to survive a clinical case of 'Whatever, nothing matters anyway.'

I hate to be the one to remind you, but Rule One is "Do not act incautiously when confronting little bald wrinkly smiling men".
I thought that was the first rule of Discworld?

short, stumpdicked, poor, bald, plebian, chubby pedestrian, unemployed and unpopular I think
Hey now, I know quite a few nice people that are any combination of short, poor, bald etc etc. Don't use things that aren't insults as insults.
Come to think of it, most insults usually aren't as insulting as the insulter thinks.

Uh, pretty sure he's ironically referring to the list of items in the OP.

Someone made this list, and I saved it because its an interesting concept.

How wrong is this?
I really think this is true for when you meet people.
This doesn't seem to apply when logic gives up and
a relationship takes over, or when girls are trying
to take pity on someone. Thats usually a friend zone thing anyway.



Literally all women care about.

1. How tall you are
2. How big your dick is
3. How much money you make
4. How much hair you have
5. Your social status
6. How fit you are
7. What car you drive (and other various status symbols)
8. What you do at work
9. How popular you are
10. How handsome you are


I'm hoping that some will try to prove or disprove this, inevitable creating some insight about life.
Either that, or you all can just kill me.
Look, just because i responded without reading properly... I forgot my point.
My realisation stands though: Insults don't have to be as insulting as the insulter thinks they are.

Also, today must be link day, because this is awesome:

This is so wonderful.
Cool idea!

I'm like you NoLeDeMiel, so I can't help.
For me, clothing is the stuff you put on your body to prevent the screams.
It usually works.

I'm supposed to be the best man at a wedding in a suit and stuff. I'm pretty sure I can suppress the tie/choking-related panicattack long enough to get through the ceremony but the whole suit thing just baffles me. I told my friend to dress me and tell me how my hair should look and that seems to be working.

Housemate to boyfriend: "Me and you, fisticuffs, all day long"

Boyfriend to housemate: "I'll fuckin scrap any time you like goddamn it. I'll bring my blankie. It makes me a superhero."

I think they are in the throes of bromance.
That is just the cutest testosterone outburst i have seen in ages!
I love the use of emotional dissonance as a bonding ritual.

I've found a lovely little spot around me that'd be perfect for a semi-public altar for Eris. I'm a little stuck on what might be useful to put up on it.  So far, I know I'll be putting a cheaply bound copy of the Principia, an empty box for a DVD of midget porn, a plastic apple painted gold, some gold candles, and as many Pope cards as I have the patience to print out.

What would YOU put on this altar?

Historical eris was a deity noted for riding shotgun in aries' chariot, shrieking in laughter while riding through knee-deep blood. As enyo, she was responsible for razing cities to dust, burning whole populations alive, and generally fucking things up.
she was hardly worshipped; only the thracians (iirc) had a cult for her, and thats because they loved going to war.

So what to put on an altar to eris? Blood. Blood of people youve killed for personal gain. Ashes of the villiages youve put to the sword and burned to the ground. Weapons...because why not? And salt. Salt was expensive to ancients, and its as good a thing as any for a goddess who delights in salting the earth and making sure whole populations rue the day they discovered agriculture.

I cant fathom what eris would do with midget porn or that other junk. Shes not some goddess of hippydom and slapstick...shes the madder and orgiastic aspects of aries but with a vagina and more passive-aggressive.

Now that's where you are wrong. She is most definitely a goddess of slapstick.

Just take a look around you.
Every time a predator drone takes out a house full of innocents tears appear in Her eyes. Slowly her beautiful features are contorted by a mad grin until she bursts out laughing. It is an ugly laugh, loud and whooping and full of snorts.
Just for fun, with a twitch of her pinky finger she puts a thought in the neighbour's head: "Now I can keep the borrowed lawnmower!" just to see the self-loathing look on his face a second later.
This millennium the laughter hasn't stopped for even a second.

Quite enjoyable to read.

I just went on a small fantasy binge on the Kindle.

Got Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archives 2...even though I can barely remember the first book.  That's OK though - Sanderson's a top notch writer, IMO truly underappreciated even after rescuing the trainwreck of a series The Wheel of Time had become.  I'll remember it in time, and if I don't...well, it just means reading more Sanderson.  Which is hardly a terrible thing, as he is such an easy writer to read.

Also picked up Daniel Polansky's Lowtown novel sequels.  The original Lowtown was my kind of story - the fantasy setting was window-dressing for something much closer to noir or a hardboiled detective novel.  If you like Joe Abercrombie, you'll probably like Polansky.
Alright, I'll keep an eye out for Polansky then. :D

The press are the eyes and ears of 7+ billion people.
Limiting the freedom of the press is limiting the freedom of everyone.
This is not a difficult concept.

There are no good reasons to do so, if you think there are, name one and I will explain why your reasoning is wrong.

Welcome back!
I have some vague memories of someone like you.
