Well, I have no dollars so that is why I'll be printing my own.  Now it's just a matter of getting an new ink cartridge and seeing how many rubes I can find. :wink:

Ahhh, see, this is how they get you. Ink is more expensive than dollars!

When I was in my teens I thought that I knew everything. In my twenty I still thought I knew better then most. Now I'm not sure what I know or if I know anything at all.  My biggest problem with the Principia Discordia isn't the stale jokes(I'm a cheesball and I eat that shit up). It's that with all the intentional contradictions, it encourages people to think for themselves. I'm old enough now to know that there are plenty of people that are way more qualified then myself to think my thoughts for me.   
... dude, what? What you are saying leads to blind obedience and blind obedience is the ultimate evil.

I like the idea and the design, though it is a bit discordian-specific.
The main reason I think that is a flaw is because I dream of a world where everyone uses more than 1 kind of currency, allowing a cultureshift that would allow society to step away from making money necessary fro survival.

Your arguments are valid.
Good luck with finding him so you can break up.

Thanks a lot for answering.
I think I've just got this weird appreciation of Discordian philosophy but at the same time an extreme desire for a neat explanation of it, which I guess isn't really the idea.
I think I think I like Discordianism but I'm not yet really feeling it. So right now I'm just trying to expose myself to it and hope it rubs off.
Maybe you could give me one or two tips about how this forum works too?
For example, in a situation like this, would a PM have been more appropriate? And what are these different boards actually about?
The Richard Nixon Presents: Alaska?
Since Nigel is busy I will try.

The desire for a neat explanation is great! Thinking you have found the neat explanation isn't though, it is a case of the journey being more important than the destination. This is especially true here, because the destination is worth striving for yet unreachable, the only people who think they reached it are delusional. And not in a fun way. More in a digging their heels in the sand and screeching way.

  It is a good thing this is the internet because in public exposing yourself and hoping something rubs you in any way is frowned upon.

  Forums are a form of passive communication...
  Looking up the term I find that apparently I am the only one who uses this definition so I will explain it with examples. Passive communication is a post-it on the refrigerator (or an email, but that image is boring.), you can read it at your own time and reply when (and if) you feel like it. Not immediately responding to passive communication is usually acceptable.
  Active communication is a phone call(or poking someone in the eyeshoulder), it is very intrusive and especially annoying when you are busy with something that requires your full attention. (can you tell I don't like phonecalls?) Not responding to active communication is a snub, but I am OK with that.
  OK, now that we can use the same definitions: Forums are a form of passive communication. This one is no exception.
Anything you want to talk about can be posted in the relevant board, I will explain some of the ones that have unclear descriptions:
 - The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts keeps changing it's name, it used to be called Apple Talk. It is the most active board and not specifically about any subject. Wanna whine about your rough day? do it there. The Open Bar thread is usually the place for that. Want to show this cool and silly thing you found? do it there. Anything and everything is acceptable there (except for blatantly illegal things, we want Faust the board-owner to stay out of jail.
- Or Kill Me is the ranting board. Is there something you really really HATE?! yell some profanity about that subject and sign off with the board's title (if you want, it's not mandatory or even common)
 - The Peanut Gallery is used to collect threads by some of the better trolls we get here. It can be quite entertaining and educational to read.
The rest, I believe, have a clear enough description but if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

PM's are like whispering at a party, they are for private conversations.

They're not bumbling idiots.
Huh, pretty cool.

I'm sorry to hear that Pix.
That must have been a hard decision.


Nice, like a horrific warning :lulz:
In my mind this is the poster for the anime someone would make about the Peter Griffin beating up a giant chicken sketch.
Yea, and it takes place in Miami round a cock-fighting ring.
I first read that as a cock-ring fight. It was a disconcerting couple of seconds.

That sucks, Nigel.

This seems relevant, but my brain has been soaked in hangover, somy judgement is not to be trusted.

Mark Thomas is a good man.

RE: Checks and balances are supposed to check and balance government and corporate interests, but they are working together more and more. Cooperation is nice, but it kinda sucks that they are working together against humans.

Humans are no longer the dominant organizational pattern on this planet.

Go Pixie! Learnin' is goodfun!

Friend's 30th birthdayparty yesterday.
I am overhung.
I woke up and I couldn't find my glasses. I put on my spare (old) glasses but that didn't help at all. In the end I had to stumble downstairs, find my prescription sunglasses and use those to find my regular glasses. It turns out they were in the windowsill near my computer. Apparently I tried to play a game or something when I got home yesterday? I can't remember.

The life of an alcoholic is rough.

Also, this thread helped me find this:

PUBLIC HEALTH PRIZE: Kasian Bhanganada, Tu Chayavatana, Chumporn Pongnumkul, Anunt Tonmukayakul, Piyasakol Sakolsatayadorn, Krit Komaratal, and Henry Wilde, for the medical techniques described in their report "Surgical Management of an Epidemic of Penile Amputations in Siam" techniques which they recommend, except in cases where the amputated penis had been partially eaten by a duck.
