Ok, I'm not an engineer, but even I know that can't possibly be right.

 :weary:

Lower voltage, amps go up.  Resistance follows amps, heat follows resistance, motor goes crispy.

Ohm's Law, 1st year apprentice shit. 

However, These People didn't do an apprenticeship.  The people in question have 1) chemistry and 2) marketing degrees.  Which means they're smarter and know everything, while we oafs step on our knuckles and make grunting and whistling noises.
I get the impression you don't have a lot of fans there.

I think we will have to agree to disagree.

I knew it.  You're a Goddamn Taylor Swift sympathizer.
I only support Taylor Swift because she never obeyed any of my orders!
Granted, maybe I shouldn't have sobbed them into my pillow, but she should know what I think! What kind of relationship would we have if she can't even read my mind all the time?!

Stealing that.  Like a boss.

  • Is Discordianism still that drug-centered? Do you have to be a pothead to qualify as a Disordian?
  • Do Discordians still follow the Principia Discordia? There seem to have been some side remarks in BIP - Common Walls.
  • Do Discordians still worship Eris as a goddess? Do they worship Eris as a personification of Chaos?
I hope someone here can help me and look forward to becoming a true Discordian.




2.  No.  We all own a copy, but nobody READS the fucking thing.


I don't.
Well of course you don't read it! It hasn't been translated to runes yet!

Alright, alright. I give in.  :lol:

I'm stealing LMNO's version though: Ignorance is not, in itself, morally wrong.
It allows me to pretend that what I said wasn't wrong.

Now I'm curious, what do you think is the ultimate evil?

Taylor Swift.

I don't like hot dogs.  They are little tubes of greasy fatty awfulness, and people who like then are obviously either insane or some form of food pervert that should be sent to a reeducation camp in Montana somewhere.

They made hot dog flavour crisps in the UK.

They taste exactly the same as actual hot dogs.  Exactly.  It's unnatural.

That sounds horrifying. Like those pickle-flavored sunflower seeds.
Those exist?!  :eek:

Went to a champagne party:



Looking good!
I think I recognize your expression in the second picture. Is that 'oh dear lord, please stop pointing camera's at me!' ? I am quite familiar with that one.

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.

Are you trying to tell him what to think?
Yep, I'm hoping it will make his head explode.

No, that's not the ultimate evil.  It's pretty sucky anyway.

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!

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.
