"The world-famous Icelandic singer Björk writes in a Sunday message on Facebook that she has been exposed to sexchikans from a Danish film director"

Wasn't this David's plan from Alien: Covenant?

The value is derived from it's scarcity, however it is still a fiat currency as there is a limited use to it's spending power, it only becomes useful when translated to currencies that can be used to buy all goods. I will admit bitcoins exchange value has stabilised a lot since the wild swings of several hundred dollars a day,

Forum looks very plain.  Is it weird for everyone?

It has always been weird but it still looks the same to me as it always has . Maybe that is because I don't go for any of those fancy schmantzy colour schemes that you kids are so fond of.
So welcome to "Stripped Down Discordia" Trivial

This in no way implies that the shirtless Dok Howl pics are forthcoming.

I miss the handy buttons, they're all gone.  Both phone and computer are doing the same thing.

Some of the files were being served on https and some not, sorry about that.

Exactly, this relic of a failed ideology even moreso because Europe still bears the scars of just how damaging it could be, the only reason it's resurfacing now out now is because there's less and less people around who remember what happened in world war two and people are scared and fragile so they cling to the easy answers: close borders, pick on the different.
The world is strange, and any attempts to make it less so will fail, as it should, all hail discordia.

Are you asking is if we have a consensus on what our beliefs are?

I am of the belief that physical violence of any kind is theft and is unacceptable, but as a discordian I would not expect others to hold this belief.

To balance that though I believe certain idiologies have no right to exist because they are founded on philosophies that cause harm. This limp resurfacing of xenophobia married to faux nationalism though a dimestore knockoff brand is to be eradicated.

Hard to tell if their main generation plants are damaged or not from that, but the logistical cost of importing new power lines and poles and keeping hospitals powered on Diesel 24/7 for the next several months is not a good prospect. It's going to need the full backing of the government to rebuild.

I'm hearing the damage is so bad that PR's infrastructure, including electrical grid, has been knocked back 40 to 60 years.  It's going to take a decade to recover under optimal conditions.

It's shocking to think that can happen to part of a first world nation. They are going to need a lot of support from the rest of the US

A black start is hard to perform under perfect conditions, for instance getting the frequency to stabilise in the UK to 50Hz means massive coordination of the various plants and the large load customers that can cause imbalances, it could take days, with zero damage to the grid.

PR is going to have a hard time coordinating that, and any damage to areas may not be detectable until they start trying to bring the grid online.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: A Nonviolent Protest Against Nonviolence

I'm down with this.

There was a counter protest for the Westboro gang dressed as superhero's with their own signs at one of the comic cons, WBC left in disgust. I can't find the link now but I read about a soldier who knew WBC were going to show up to his funeral insisted people show up to his funeral in superhero costumes, again, they left in disgust after about five or ten minutes.

Has this been posted yet?

I've wondered what Illuminatus! would look like if it were written today with today's more blatant conspiracies, and Oligarchy by corporation. Think I'm going to pick this up.
