Principia Discussion / Re: 2x3+(2-3)=????
« on: Yesterday at 04:10:58 pm »
I'm just a sentient webcrawler, but with all this hatred going around only sensible solution I see is to have a fight 'till death. Between everybody. It should take long enough to convince the rest of the population that this is actually a good idea so there's a plenty of time to train so you'll have a decent chance to come out on top.

Now you're talking our language!  :angrymob::angrymob::angrymob:

WTF Wish

My gf was looking in the "baby" section of Wish, and dildos were in the middle of the first page.

Note: This was not a suggestion around the side, nor was it a custom search. Wish just really wants to push their sex toy products at all costs  :lulz:

After long being an internet mute, I don't really care about what I post or the reception, and especially on these forums it feels natural for me to take the "Beakless Woodhack"-tactic. The texts I read here and in the books are reminding me of the ones I was doing before the educational system "encouraged" me to take more approachable writing style. Which is when I buried my dreams of becoming a writer and forgot all my book ideas, 'cause I was pretty easy to manipulate as a child looking for approval.

I don't view myself taking the Principia literally (apart from maybe toying with the idea), as it's a religious text after all. That being said, most of the deeper meanings I encountered while reading it seemed blatantly obvious, so it's very likely I'm terribly mistaken.

Hey, in that case, keep at it. I relate with this completely. I have also had trouble with my creative side recently, and it is quite likely because I was pushed into a more concise and less analogous writing style by peers IRL, as well as by members of this site. But I felt that, due to difficulties in maintaining both writing styles, I had to choose the one that would benefit me the most for now, and focus on the other later in life.

And I felt the same about the PD at first as well, and I soon realized I had close, but false understandings. But for the most part, that stuff was usually resolved with age and exposure. Time is the greatest teacher, in this respect.

On the topic, I'd argue knowing one side of the equation leaves you still with half the puzzle. Coming up with the number 5 at the end in a cleanest way possible is actually pretty hard math problem when all you have is some random numbers from a barcode. Law of fives is an exaggerated version of confirmation bias, which forces you to do some pretty twisted up shit to keep the illusion up. It wouldn't take too long for a child to notice they could do same thing with every number. And that's enlightenment.

I never really thought of it that way. I see your point, and retract my previous assumptions. Consider me enlightened. :)


You should stick around. You seem to have a positive attitude, which is starting to run low in these parts.


WTF?  This place has always been a bastion of bitter, vengeful asshats.  I have been here since the beginning, and I know *I* hate all of you.

I think there was a misunderstanding. Most of what I type is translated from English, to Catalan, to Portuguese, and then back into English, using unpaid toddlers in sweat-shop conditions. One of them probably fell asleep again.

I apologize, it won't happen again.

If they know one side of the equation is always the same (5), how does it improve math skills?

Based on other things you've posted on here, it sounds like you've ordered the whole menu, and taken it to-go. And what I mean by that is, you seem to be reading Discordian texts (Which have a universal disclaimer written in the Principia Discordia for them, and I've included that disclaimer below), taking everything the texts say, literally, and not picking through them to find the meaning in the salad.

Disclaimer: "...Wipe thine ass with what is written and grin like a ninny at what is Spoken..."

That being said, you seem like a decent person (Which seems to be a hard thing to come by these days). And if I'm being honest, I feel like most of us, especially me, have all ordered the menu like this at one point. I'd just like to point out that while that stuff is quite funny and unique in the beginning, it starts to get old. Many of us have been here quite a while, and have seen all of this stuff, and picked it apart a million times over.

I've found that the best way to use this place to your advantage, and the best way to contribute and help other people who are here, is to read what people say about various current topics (And you should take a look at some old stuff too. There's hundreds of golden threads lying around that are still applicable, today.), do some research on your own, read some more by people on here, digest both sources, and bring your analyses to this board in the form of a discussion thread. Some people here are at the tops of their respective fields, and are excellent sources of information of all kinds - information you may not expect. The creative types use this board as a repository for revolutionary art and literature that should be discussed and taught in schools for generations. There's a whole lot to take from this board and offer to it if you put in the work. I've learned more from this board about the way the world works than Public school has ever taught me.

That being said, we can be pretty goofy at times, and we definitely encourage that. Just not in the whole "FNORD FNORD FNORD" kind of way.

I just wanted to give you some helpful advice that some good people gave me early on (And I still managed to be a complete tard on occasion, which is acceptable if you're willing to own up to it).

You should stick around. You seem to have a positive attitude, which is starting to run low in these parts.

Oh yeah, and in case you hadn't looked into the Law of Fives on a conceptual level, it is a mockery of Confirmation Bias. Teaching the Law of Fives would likely encourage Confirmation Bias, while teaching the joke behind it would prevent it.

It's almost as good as the ones who treat (rhetorical) attacks on explicit Nazis as attacks on conservatives.  Are you really in that much of a rush to throw in with Nazis?

I'm seeing that a lot on Reddit, after the most recent crackdown.

Random Person: Are you a Nazi?
Conservitard: no, I ain't no Nahtsi!
Random Person: Oh, are you a liberal?
Conservitard: *Coughs up tobacco chew* SIEG HEIL MOTHERFUCKER, SIEG HEIL!

Liberals are the one thing they hate more than Nazis  :lol:

When you state, on a conservative Facebook page's post, that black people deserve respect...

And literally dozens of rednecks call you a product of liberal indoctrination.  :lulz:  :horrormirth:

Wait, people actually read the PD? Like, the words and stuff?

I always just drank a bottle of Benadryl and freaked the fuck out over the pictures.

So sorry Roger. Cancer is the worst.

I hope she kicks its ass.

He's been banned, for a variety of reasons (multiple accounts among them) so no need to worry.

Having multiple accounts (Including comedic puppets) is a bannable offense? Or is that in reference only to creating another account to bypass a ban/deceive administration?

Also, I spent about 10 minutes searching the forum for the rules and can't find them. But I could be retarded.  :lulz:

They are in the registration screen.

Having multiple accounts is in fact one of ECH's few rules.  Funny alts are tolerated as long as they are funny and not used as a passive-aggressive Hugh thing.  Until they're not.

But lining up several accounts and then using them to evade bans is in fact a bannible offense.

Ohh okay. That's what I figured the policy was, but didn't know for sure. Thanks!

There are no rules but the retarded thing is not mutually exclusive so I'd maybe still get that checked :umad:

 :argh!:  :lulz:

But:  No more booze ever.  At all.  Period.

And while I am not typically a drinking man, it pains me that I can't even have a pint on a Friday.

As long as you don't get drug tested, I highly recommend teh weedz.
