Hey bro, just FYI this is a bad place to bloviate on scientific or political topics you don't know anything about.

Nonetheless still gotta agree that neutering takes away animals' slack though.

Sure, in approximately the same way that birth control takes away women's slack.

Closer to a hysterectomy/ovohysterectomy. Learn some damn biology.

A corrupt priest sits rotting in a Vatican City jail after stealing parish funds to pay off gambling debts. One day, the Pope himself visits him, and tells him that the Antichrist has been born and that he must find a relic -- a book bound in Christ's foreskin, with vellum pages made from the hide of the original scape-goat, with instructions on how to defeat God's army in the end times -- and destroy it. In order to do so, he must use the training and skills he swore off when he joined the priesthood so many years before, and once again adopt the name he swore he would never again answer to -- James Bond.

OMG that's great!

I'm not interested in filling my head with whatever is in the link, but from what I've seen ITT...

She's saying that humanity is entirely dependant on rape for procreation. This is just absurd. Rape is an act of violence and dominion, not of sex per se. This basic misunderstanding seems to be her whole view on the subject. The vehemence and single mindedness in her words seems almost inhuman. As though the manipulation of a vulnerable reader by way of fictitious and graphic imagery was the whole point of the writing..

She's possibly psychotic, I think. If not then this is likely an intended effect, but why?

There's lots of reasons people end up fucked up about sex, women especially. I haven't read any of the other articles on the site, but her descriptions of sex and pregnancy make it pretty clear that she's terrified of childbearing.

No doubt. More than that she seems against even the idea that it could be ok, much less greatly desired by other women, without corecion. LOTS of women find the idea of pregnancy daunting. Rightly, it can kill you, and even if successful your life as you knew it is over.

She seems to be farther out than that to me. She sees only evil in humanity on some deep level. Aggression and an oddly thoughtful, systematic brutality in males and a condescending perception of weakness in females that makes them indefensibly vulnerable to thought control.

She is in effect more deluded than even some conspiracy theorists. If this was not brought about by some trauma I would be shocked to hear of it.

I disagree. I'm gonna say severe paranoid schizophrenia. Possibly in combination with either borderline, paranoid-malignant, or paranoid-fanatic personality disorder

In this satire of movies like The Lazarus Effect or Event Horizon or Jurassic Park, The story follows two unrelated teams of scientists. The first team, while working on genetically modified high yield crops or new medicines or reanimating the dead or something like that, accidentally creates an unstoppable monster. Meanwhile the second group - a team of Nazi mad scientists working in a secret laboratory in Argentina to develop an airborne drug-resistent strain of the bubonic plague which they plan to release in Israel and in New York City - accidentally stumbles upon a discobery which will have enormous benefits for all mankind and may also hold the key to defeating the monster.

Discordian Recipes / Re: Are Hotdog Buns Still Forbidden?
« on: March 07, 2015, 07:26:59 am »
Traditionally, keeping Discordian meant observing the dietary commandments of The Principia Discordia.  Specifically no hotdog buns.  Is this dietary rule still practised?

Did you miss the part where a Discordian is forbidden to believe everything he reads?

Also, there's another part of the book that says that they're mandatory*



*As part of a fully garnished hotdog every friday. Perferably this should be increased to multiple fully garnished hotdogs on fridays during lent. You should also eat as many hotdog buns as possible during passover, a bacon double cheeseburger on yom-kippur, and as much black pudding** as you can eat for lunch (preferably at high noon) every day during ramadan. These last four rules aren't in the book, but they're just common sense.


**The pig-blood based sausage, not the slime monster which splits into additional monsters when struck by a weapon that deals slashing or piercing damage.

Oh yeah.  Morrowind is a fucking work of art when it comes to originality.  And the graphics were pretty amazing, for when they came out.

It's just...well, those graphics on the Skyrim engine.  I've seen the results.  It's gorgeous.

If you've got a graphics card that renders the colors properly at any rate.

The snarky side of me said, "at least we won't have to see any more posts about the color of that damn dress."

That dress is a sacred relic

Reposted from something I wrote on another thread

I just remembered a really weird type of sandwich that they used to sell at a food truck at college. I forget the name (of the sandwich. The truck was called Pyramid Pizza) and I've never tried to put one together myself but it seems rather elementary...

You'll need:

2 hotdogs
a hoagie/hero/grinder/sub roll
french fries
Ketchup
Cheese whiz
Honey mustard

Directions:
1.) Heat up hotdogs and fries
2.) Lay hotdogs end to end in hoagie/sub/grinder roll
3.) add ketchup, mustard, and cheese-whiz
4.) jam fries into roll above hotdogs
5.) garnish with more ketchup, mustard, and spray cheese

This was one of the less weird sandwiches that they sold.

Why not treat it *as* psychology? That's something that to my knowledge hasn't been done in fiction really. Additionally, it makes it more or less useless in most of the situations where it would be a deus ex machina, but quite absurdly useful in certain other places where you might need it (taking the place of psychological warfare and in some cases psychoanalysis).


Isn't that pretty much the majority of what the Lancre Witches do on Discworld?


"Headology"

Yeah, but they also have real magic powers. They're just afraid to use them because using them excessively tends to endanger the user and/or drive tem insane.


EDIT:
As for the OP, that was kind of the plot of Wicked, wasn't it. "Glinda the Good" is a bitch, and the "Wonderful Wizard" is a tyrannical fascist.

EDIT:
Also Grendel by John Gardner.

A story where it is deliberately unclear whether it passes the Bechdel test because the female characters are of ambiguous sexuality and their unseen significant otners all have androgynous names.

EDIT:

-The tribulations of an Italian or Italian-American vampire living in a garlic-heavy neighborhood.

EDIT:

-A parody of Disney/Pixar's Planes about a flying  saucer that vehemently insists that it is a weather balloon


EDIT:


-As part of a parody of Harry Potter dorm assignments are assigned by drawing lots out of an old hat.
