*nodding*  That's pretty much what I figured.  I do realize, of course, the OP was meant to ask questions, engendering one's OWN response...I just wanted to know how you'd answer it yourself, Silly.  Thanks.

How I'd answer for myself may be beyond the remit of the BIP project but, since I like talking about myself I don't mind answering.

I've prolly said this before - I'm in it for the lulz.

Since most of the world I'm presented with stikes me as hilariously funny it's only really difficult for me to see the funny side when I'm under what I consider to be extreme duress.

Because I find this form of laughing my head off the most fulfilling I tend to try and push myself into situations that put pressure on me, the payoff usually coming when I completely lose it and start either pulling my hair out or weeping like a little bitch.

Failing this avenue being immediately available to me I will endeavour to find situations where other people are under extreme duress and laugh at them.

The ones who seem to be dealing with the situation a lot less effectively than myself often prove to be the most hilarious.

Paris Hilton breaking a nail and sliding into a near fatal panic attack is worth about 50 instances of people screaming and panicking as a tidal wave or landslide hurtles towards them in terms of sheer, tear streaming glee.

Other things I like to laugh at include:

Belief systems and the people who adhere to them
People who seem to share the same sense of the ridiculous as myself
Media

Answer is simple, as always, Do what thou wilt.

For best results take 'them' into consideration.

There is you and there is them.
They are not you despite any efforts you may make to bend your mind to thinking you are one of them
You are you.
They are not.
They may tell you what you are, where you are and what is expected of you.
They may convince you they are right, that you are, indeed, one of them.
But you will know differently, whether you are prepared to admit it or not.

Perhaps you will continue to lie to yourself.
You'll pull the wool over your own eyes.
You'll walk, talk, eat, sleep and shit like them.
You'll extol the virtues of being one of them.
It's to be expected, it's the way you're wired as a creature, as a self replicating biological machine.
A number of years so vast as to be utterly incomprehensible to you has resulted in you being born on this earth with the imprinted urge to fit in.
From the moment you took your first breath your programming took over, seeking to imprint on the first two dots with a line underneath that your eyes registered.
"This is your mother", it said, "It will give you everything you you need and tell you everything you need to know"

You were born a mammal.
The mammalian way is that of community.
You had no say in that. A mammal is what you turned out to be.
You learned the rules with a natural propensity to fitting in to the family unit which you found yourself existing in.
It started with "Use the lungs to vibrate the vocal chords to attract attention"
That one was given to you before you're lungs had developed in utero.

You knew how to scream before you were born.
You knew a whole lot more too.
You knew how to pay attention.
You knew how to learn and mimic every little nuance you observed.
You learned to speak and, in doing so, you learned how to think.

But you are not them, no matter how hard you try.
You may have gotten the job and purchased the lifestyle.
You may attend the meetings and read the literature.
You may even have rebelled against them and joined a subset of them who rage against the establishment according to their own established form.
But you aren't them either.

And you know this.
And so do they.
Why am I telling you this?
Simple - I'm not one of them either.

don't you mean Disorder instead of Chaos?

was a spin off from 'even in chaos there is order'

Doesn't sound so snappy if you use 'disorder' just seems like an obvious oxymoron. This is not intended for people who would be able to draw the distinction anyroad. Cabbage thinks chaos = disorder innit

"Every statement contains falsehood" - Crowley

If there was some way to illustrate this 'fact' then reality would fall to pieces for a lot of people.

You suck! Second place is just another way of saying 'LOSER'  :lulz:

Those questions were insane.

Highest mountain in England?
Traditionally, what is the fifth wedding anniversary known as?
Where does Rupert Bear live?

Fuck that shit, I'm having as many bottles of Magners as I can force my adoptive team to pay for. :)

1) Scafell Pike (more of a hill than a mountain really)
2) 5 too many
3) Ruperts house

I never put too much stock in the celebrity version - not long enough for the really interesting psychological effects to manifest.

Nevar miss an episode :lulz:

It's funnier and more educational than watching monkeys in a zoo.

I do wish someone with a bit of skill would get in there tho - cat among pigeons would be 10 week lailfest  :lulz:

The king is on his throne
lives his life down to the bone
he's so very far from home
break a leg motherfucker

I been living in a dream
the sublime to the obscene
when I wake a want to scream
but it turns into a stutter

cos Ive seen this all before
sick and tired but yell for more
I'm romancing painted whores
who only lust for money

Money talks and money sings
money takes and money brings
all those captivating strings
tie the knot around my freedom

Like a shadow on the corner
underneath the streetlights glow
Where the diamonds on the sidewalk
are a deadly undertow

I will give my love a symbol
then I'll look her in the eye
show the gold behind the window
then I'll lay me down to die
