Probably the best approach would be to just go ahead and ban certain words.  :lulz:

That might be a good way to get everyone on board with a STRICT POLICY OF CONDUCT that will be adhered to and use of such words deemed improper would lead to an immediate ban from this board as well as permanent excommunication from The Discordian Society.

The fuck was that about?

More like base-ASS mathematics

Why Am I Still Alive?

Related to the more common, WAYSA?

I heard back from my advisor this morning, and I'm eligible to pursue my major under the new requirements.  :banana:

It says something about my school experience that my gut reaction is to advise you to check with three other advisors, sacrifice a goat on the dean's lawn, and hold the university president's pets hostage until you see a transcript, scribed on a tungsten plate, verifying that your credits are all in order.

But of course you already have that all taken care of. You're the last person I need to be advising about this.

This is so inept it's poetic.

I have been trying for two days to adequately express how I feel about what's going on ITT.

This is it, precisely.

Officials at the Enchanted Forest posted this picture on their Facebook page with the update:
“A sad day at EF! Hopefully we can put him together again! (Thankfully, no one was hurt, except Humpty)“

It appears Humpty’s demise was accidental. KOIN 6 News learned two men climbed over the retaining wall and tried to get up on the wall with Humpty, but Humpty and the wall fell.

Was the word "literally" really necessary in that headline? Like Humpty would have a figurative fall instead?

A fall from grace, a fall from glory? A falling out with his already emotionally distant father, or perhaps a childhood best friend who has gotten really into their newfound religion? A fall into a decadent and debased lifestyle, brought on by a perceived lack of responsibility and purpose in his life?

I'm so confused about what's happening right now

Sadly, yes.  This has not been an enjoyable day.

I called this a speech because it was one.  I was asked by Mayor Hiremath to give a short speech at a Rotary Club meeting as a "distinguished veteran". 

It was not, unfortunately, well-received.  But I got to eat FIRST, so it was a win.  I in fact just got home.

I thought Mayor Hiremath was gonna bust a gut laughing.

Fuckin' bravo. :lulz:

I read some of the speculation on the Second Apocalypse forums...and I was lost on the references in many cases.  I think I may have read parts of The White-Luck Warrior too quickly, because I don't remember pieces at all.  So this time I've been taking notes. 

I may start a thread to discuss the bits I've picked out, a sort of scrapbook/book club thing, if anyone else wants to join in.  I've not gotten any amazing insights thus far, though I'm only half way through The Warrior-Prophet, but I did notice Kellhus basically makes a mention of the Judging-Eye even that far back (though not by name).

Oh shit. Three times and that still slipped by me.

There's a lot to be gained from the Atrocity Tales on the website, I recall. There's only one mention of the Inverse Fire I can recall in the first trilogy, and it seems to be central to why the Consult exist. It is explained a little more in one of the Atrocity Tales.

:lulz: And here I was proud of myself for managing to get back in the habit of reading semi-regularly. I also re-read PoN and have started The Judging Eye again, because I've got a big feeling that The Unholy Consult is gonna be hell to follow if I don't have the plot fresh in my mind.

The Rheusus Chart has been released today. 

If you're not already reading The Laundry Files series, WAYSA?  It's got everything you need, the British Civil Service, techno-geekery and eldiritch horrors from dimensions with recurved space and backwards time invading our reality.

And if you're still not convinced, you can read the first chapter here.

I barely have time for the reading I'm already trying to do, and then you go and get me interested in this :argh!:

You know, this latest round of brain weirdness has actually affected the way I look at people, in a very positive way.  I've very quickly become a lot more willing and able to put myself in someone else's shoes.

I still hate Mike the Engineer like he was sucking Pol Pot's farts out every night, mind you.  But he's a genuinely bad person.  In general I find myself a great deal more sympathetic toward people.

I think I like this a great deal.

Right on! :)
