Cool.  And of course I would expect as much for the terms. 

I think for now I'll hang with this handle though.  I'm using the RWHN handle on Twitter, if any of you tweet these days.  I mean, I wouldn't blame you if you didn't.  It's a real bastion of crappola!

a. i knew it was you anyway. i mean the nickname was sort of a giveaway.

Really?  It was intended as a reference to the character from The Maxx, not necessarily anything that had anything to do with me.

b. how do you find time to post online these days at all, what with the world literally unravelling in 3 or 4 states and all the pot zombies running around murdering innocent people?

Outsourcing.  It's the American Way!

c. okay whatever i hardly ever post anyway it isn't like i'm the management.

 :magick:

It's been awhile since I've emoji-ed here, so I think that was the right one, but who knows.

When speccing a Templar for the healer role, is it better to evolve Cleansing Ritual into Extended Ritual for additional healing over time benefits, or instead morph it into Ritual of Retribution so that you can deploy AoE damage alongside heals and keep your DPS up?

I think that last thing.  But I'd wear a helmet.

Re-introduction:

Because this is actually Rev. What's-His-Name?  Yes, I just can't stay away.  But really, how could I?  I joined the board back in 2005, during some chaotic years in my life.  Stuck in a going-nowhere retail job while finishing a Master's degree at a snail's pace, plus all kind of personal-life shenanigans that we just WON'T go into.  So it was really great to discover the PD, Discordianism and all that jazz, but also this place with a lot of cool cats who GET IT.  Plus the BIP, the Reality Safari's, and all kind of other projects.  So it was a big deal for me.  So yeah, it's kind of hard to totally leave behind something like this which proved to be pretty damned formative. 

And then the drug threads happened.

Now, I'm not coming here to tell you "I've changed man!".  My philosophy around drugs is pretty much the same.  BUT, the thing I've come to realize is that you don't have to go to the hilt every single time the topic comes up.  You can believe what you can believe, but there are times and places to go at it like you are ready to die on the hill.  (Plus it's all downhill from there anyway).  In other words, I was a party to escalating things far beyond where they needed to be escalated in those conversations.  I regret that.  I also realize I needlessly got hung up about people using my real name here, as I've come to find out when you get involved in the politics of marijuana, your name is going to get out no matter what, and the people on the other side are going to hate you no matter what.  So I don't know why I made such an issue out of that.  Well, you live and you learn right? 

So anyhoo, I started up this account awhile back, mostly just to be able to read what you guys were coming up with.  In these days of the Trump Administration Extravaganza, any little bit of Slack or Nonsense helps.  It really sucks out there. 

And to just cut to the Elephant, you guys do what you must with me.  I would ask for your consideration to let me remain and rejoin the fold.  I could give a fuck talking about drugs (I mean I do it all day for work anyway), and I don't feel as Punny these days, but obviously you guys do you as far as what you want to do with me.  But I'd like to continue to hang as the real me if you'd be so bold. 

So, hola, and uh, ask me anything!

Don't buy the Steve Jackson Games version because he's a horrible, horrible person.

It sounds like there's a story behind this. What is it?

He's a callous, soulless opportunist.  I dunno, I think he just liked the imagery and trappings of Discordia to sell games and stuff, but could give a lick about the actual philosophy.

Except, as the article notes:

Quote
Legal experts said forcing defendants to work for free might violate their constitutional rights. The 13th Amendment bans slavery and involuntary servitude in the United States, except as punishment for convicts. Thatís why prison labor programs are legal. But many defendants sent to programs such as CAAIR have not yet been convicted of crimes, and some later have their cases dismissed.

Anyway, I mostly bring it up because RWHN always said he preferred addiction treatment to prison, when it sounds like the two aren't very different at all.

Well it certainly doesn't sound like Club Med.

Hi all,

I am here to find my way out of (into?) an existential crisis. I believe this is the only religion that has nothing to teach me, so naturally I am here to learn. I bought a copy of the Principia Discordia on Amazon because I was enjoying the parts I read online.

I'm kind of having a hard time with life right now, and interacting with Discordianism is making me feel a little better. Just wanted to say hi before I contribute anything.

Discordianism has an uncanny knack for showing up at our doorstep in these times. 

(According to some other weirdos, sometimes lunch will just up and wander onto your stoop too.)

It means you are ready....for...well...we're all still trying to figure that part out.
