What's funny?Your first line. Obviously, I agree with the second.
We have some big worms here. http://www.xerces.org/oregon-giant-earthworm/Seriously? that is huge.
QuoteThe Oregon giant earthworm is one of North Americaís largest worm species, reaching up to 1.32 m (4.3 ft.) in length. It is known from 15 sites in the Willamette Valley of Oregon and one site in the Oregon Coast Range. Like Oregonís other indigenous worms, this species has a narrow range of tolerance for soil conditions, favoring fine textured soils rich in clay (Fender 1995); it is generally associated with deep, little disturbed soils in moist mixed forest of Douglas firs, grand firs, and bigleaf maples (Wells et al. 1983). Habitat loss and the establishment of introduced earthworms are currently identified as the two major threats to this species (Fender 2009, pers. comm). Note, however, that the status and threats of this species cannot be fully assessed until an effective survey protocol is developed and tested (Rosenberg 2009, pers. comm.).
I can't help but disagree with parts of the BIP interpretation.
I'm not sure why, but it seems too constricting. there seem to be too many "rules" for me. .
Right, you're out of the club.
Incidentally, there is nothing to be gained by throwing your morals out. There's a lot to lose, though.
I remember reading a study somewhere that said that sadness serves the purpose of making us introspective. We get depressed and start taking good long looks at out lives to find out Where It All Went Wrong.Sadness and depression are not at all the same thing.
Hey actually, is it possible to make altars to things that aren't gods, strictly speaking. Not like demons obviously. But if i were to go to Las Vegas, for example and erect a shrine to Lady Luck in the hopes of winning shitloads of money at the tables, would it be any different that worshiping household deities or something? Would doing that MAKE Lady Luck a minor deity?
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?
Look, just because i responded without reading properly... I forgot my point.short, stumpdicked, poor, bald, plebian, chubby pedestrian, unemployed and unpopular I thinkHey 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.
Also, today must be link day, because this is awesome:Cool idea!
Unexpectedly nude photography. SFW.
This is so wonderful.
Housemate to boyfriend: "Me and you, fisticuffs, all day long"That is just the cutest testosterone outburst i have seen in ages!
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.
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.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.
