Discordia for Old People

1. sermons composed almost entirely of complaints about how Discordia's changed for the worse
2. you get to become really religious right before you die (also known as "cramming for finals")
3. more fire and brimstone than Discordia For Kids
4. "Back in my day, Eris used to keep a chilly dagger in her bosom for punk kids like you"
5. Eris' gift to her loyal followers is complete senility

  • Get yourself really close to orgasm
  • Immediately prior to orgasm, click on one of the following links: Link A, Link B, Link C, Link D, Link E, Link F (all NSFW ... but you shouldn't be participating at work anyway)
  • You must stare at the image for the duration of your orgasm
  • Report short-term and long-term and results here

Do it for SCIENCE

But its true.  I remember at MW, where they were talking about telling their co-workers, or "coming out of the broom closet".  Who gives a shit?  I mean, really?  Sure, if I want to be your friend or are interested in you in other ways, I might eventually ask a question like that, but its hardly a top priority.  Same for flaunting my own beliefs.

In short, stfu, no-one cares what you believe.  If you're so Pink you feel compelled to have to let everyone know how you label yourself, well thats your problem and I hope you get used to the consequences.

SRSLY! If a coworker ever "came out of the broom closet" to me (I lol'd at that phrase) I'd say "Yes, and I jerk off in the bathroom right after lunch. Now we both know unnecessary personal facts about each other."

William Shatner

ex-girlfriend once tied me to a chair,
turned on william shatner
left the room

(it was revenge for adding william shatner mp3s to every single one of her playlists)

Randall Flagg: Pleased to meet you, Lloyd. Hope you guessed my name.
Lloyd Henreid: Huh?
Randall Flagg: Oh. Nothing. Just a little classical reference.

Yeah, Randall Flagg was a bad ass.

sorry, which questions did I put on the table?

and how did I blow it by talking about the physical properties of teh gland? They're part of the discussion too.

EDIT: just read Liber 812 a few times. Similar, but unrelated to this piece.

could it be that these chaotic elements of human interaction have their basis in the chaotic elements of mathematics?

hard fast numbers can be seen as a fallacy or inconsistency in and of themselves

yeah I don't think so. Math and numbers are man-made.

Of course the thing about fractals is that things up close look just like things far away. If you understand how monkeys mate, you basically understand how humans mate. The patterns found in real life are also found in mathematics, but I don't think one arose from the other.

the practicality of SAT scores is debatable

toss those same kids in a steel cage match and the outcome might be different

But how should I raise my kid if I want him to win the Nobel prize AND wrestle bears?  :p

Or Kill Me / The Pineal Gland (LOL)

Yeah, I'm going there.

The Pineal Gland is a little pea-sized thing deep inside your brain. Until the 1960s, nobody really knew what it was for.

Descartes (who was doing his damnedest to connect the mind and the body) called this mysterious gland the "seat of the soul". This is why the Pineal Gland is sometimes compared to a gospel choir singer's butt. Get up off your pineal gland and SING - for grand old Discordja!

The pineal gland is associated with the sixth chakra, Ajna, also known as the third eye. The third eye is open to dreams and imagination, but not the physical world. Some people think that if you wake up your pineal gland, you can learn ~telepathy~. Some people believe that a hemaphrodite deity named Ardhanarishvara (bless you!) lives there. This is supposed to symbolize the unity of subject and object, of self and the world, of this and thou and that. But Discordians know that Ardhanarishvara is actually just a bisexual Eris Discordja. Get nasty with that hottie, Discordja!

The Pineal Gland produces melatonin, a juice which gets you into the circadian rhythm. You activate yourself during the daytime and slow yourself down during the nighttime because the deity that lives there is trying to balance you out. Trying to make personal sense out of these cycles. (That's imposing a grid of order on chaos, ya dig?) Most people have a lopsided pineal gland, which is unfortunate, because it means they're never really in the Now, they're tipped towards some other part of the rhythm. Maybe they're waiting for the good part of the song? But they're missing this part!

But when you get in synch with the rhythm, that seat of the soul rhythm, you're gonna be overcome by the music of ERIS. you're gonna snap your fingers to the gospel of ERIS. You're gonna throw your hands up in the air and PRAISE ERIS. You're gonna yell TESTIFY and HAIL ERIS and ALL HAIL DISCORDJA.

Because the new day is coming - the new wave is coming - the revolution is coming and it's not against anybody.  If anybody, it's against who you were and for who you will be. They've got us conned into thinking that a revolution is a fight, and can you win or lose or chicken out. But it's not a battle, it's a change. And it doesn't end in victory or defeat - if the revolution succeeds, it doesn't end at all.

The revolution isn't against, it's for. It's for you, and it's for me, and it's for all of us all singing gospel and it sounds like a mess because we never practice and we never harmonize. But it's a great mess like John Coltrane would make, like ad lib would make, like improv would make. Like Eris Discordja is snapping her fingers with the rhythm and she says take what you like, leave what you don't. Be who you are, and be who you're not. Take her lead, because you're gonna be Eris and she's gonna be you. And All Hail Eris, 'cause she Hails You Too.

Vive la Revolution!

quick factoid from a Psychology of Education class I took:

Kids who were spanked score significantly lower on the SATs than kids who were never spanked.

It has something to offer, true.  The key is packaging.  I think the basic concepts would be very appealing to a young person, especially one who's feeling he/she's losing their way, or drowning in their community or society.  At the same time, a kid isn't going to want to look too geeky, thus the packaging comment.  Kids still want to impress other kids, especially the opposite gender.  Kind of hard to do if you are seen as the Wizard of Wierd.
