Sad news, indeed. Was a big fan of TG / Coil / PTV growing up.

MY OPINIONS ON THIS SUBJECT AS SOMEBODY THAT HAS FOUND DISCORDIA AND PD.COM FOR LIKE A WEEK...TOTAL
It's a front "human rights organization", paid and stayed by the Church of Scientology, to save humanity from the evils of psychiatry, and guide them towards Xenu. There's actually a few fun exhibits, such as a hands on "electro-convulsive-therapy" machine, torture tools of the trade, top secret US government mind control research documents, and the kicker, a live, viewable telephone helpline for victims of psychiatry / future slaves to L. Ron...
I don't think you quite get Scientology's purpose... and for this I salute you.
Life in Southern California is really helping out for my occult research / infiltration project... Fake museum for Scientology woo
I like the idea of a museum that is judgmental about its exhibits.
This is a man who uploads videos nearly every 2 hours, every day of himself playing with sailor moon dolls.
Prime example of his madness:
Here's the thing, though: pretending to be a Discordian and actually being a Discordian are not all that different. Some would probably tell you that there's no difference there at all. That's how it draws you in, see. First you think that you're just part of a ridiculous joke, and then you get so into the joke it seems real, but then it's a joke again, and then Reality is the joke and you forget where the hell you were going with this nonsense in the first place.
This part is my favorite, especially the bolded line.
I'd just like to point out that it does seem like a revenge thread to me. This is the 3rd time in the past couple of days that Vex has made some sort of post or thread about Subgenii paying $30.
Vex, I think you should let the matter go and stop dumping on Subgenii and pretending to purvey really real Discordianism. Didn't really have a problem with you before but this is starting it irritate me.
I lost my natto virginity today.
For those who don't know, natto is a traditional Japanese food consisting of fermented soybeans infamous for its funky odor and texture.
For a giggle, please note that the packaging say "bukkake" in Japanese. Now, bukkake is also a perfectly innocent word meaning to splash or douse (as in you're supposed to splash your natto with soy sauce before eating it).
But considering that this is what natto looks like, the alternative meaning of "bukkake" is somehow very apropos:
The biggest thing that turns people off about natto is the smell. Curiously, I didn't find it to be all that bad. Based on people's descriptions, I was expecting a putrid, sour odor to issue forth from the package when I opened it. To me it just smelled earthy and a little pungent. Now, I can see how some people say it's reminiscent of sweaty socks. But I think that's an unfairly extreme statement; if natto smells like socks then parmesan cheese smells like vomit and stilton like your great grandmother's moldy basement. IMHO, there are plenty of fermented foods that smell far worse than natto, I think people are just being squeamish because's it's an unfamiliar food.
As for the texture: Amazing! When you stir this stuff up it sticks to your chopsticks, suspended in numerous tiny threads like silly string or a spiders web. Admittedly it's more fun to play with than to actually eat. When you put it in your mouth, well, it's thick and slimy and ropey.
Its other attributes are far from endearing but what made me dislike natto was the taste. It's very bitter. And not bitter as in the gentle astringency of black tea or the refreshingly clean bitterness of bitter melon; natto's bitterness bloomed in your mouth and lingered on the back of the tongue and made you want a glass of water to wash it away.
Natto, like oysters, is one of those foods that make you wonder who the hell was the first person to try it. I can't imagine people finding the pungent, sticky mass of beans under their bed of rice straw and thinking "Oh boy, I'd like to have this for breakfast everyday!". But natto seems to be very healthy for you and the people who enjoy it really enjoy it. So more power to them.
