This would make a pretty good flyer. I'll whip up a PDF sometime in the probably-kinda-distant future if someone else doesn't do it sooner.

Liberals are the new fascist.  evidence http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberal_Fascism

Therefore, it only stands to reason that conservatives are the new communists.

Discordian Recipes / Re: Post Apocalyptic Cuisine

Is this an actual apocalypse where radiation kills everything, god rains meteors on us, or is it a zombie apocalypse? If it's a radiation or zombie apocalypse I hope you have a basement with 60 years of food in it.

Zmobies only live 60 years?

It's an unspecific kind of apocalypse, but let's say for now that it's an economic apocalypse cause by overpopulation, overconsumption, and widespread incompetency.

So, basically, the way things are IRL?

what school is this, anyway?

ECH,
sees dollar signs

SUNY Stony Brook Southampton, on Long Island. If you can get down here, by all means, exploit these rich fucks into oblivion. Bonus points if you can get them busted for something that mommy and daddy can't have them bailed out for.

How long have you been there? about a month right? It should start to mellow out in a few weeks I'd say, but as was pointed out this is what most dorms are like, so you'll probably just have to get used to it, or join in being one of the crazy drunks. But I do sympathise, our dorm was trashed by drunkards the yesterday, it is fucking annoying at times.

Thanks, but... no. This situation is intolerable, because there is literally nowhere and no way for me to get away from the all-night parties. There are less than 300 students at this school, and I have yet to find a peer group that doesn't get stupidly drunk whenever they possibly can. The opportunity to mooch off of the available substances does not make up for miserable nights. If it was only Friday and/or Saturday nights, that would be one thing. But enough of the hard partyers (a) have Fridays off and start their weekend on Thursday night, (b) have classes late enough in the afternoon that they can sleep off their hangovers, or (c) just don't give a shit, that I can't get to sleep several nights a week.

Also, the dormitory suite is absolutely squalid. People leave trash and food all over the place, even after being told by Teh Authorities to clean the fuck up.

Does this school require you to live in the dorms. I know some of them do if you are under a certain age and/or number of hours.

My apartment is cheaper than the cheapest dorms at my school.

$275/mo for 300 square feet all to myself.

That's what I'm looking for, but it being the Hamptons area... $800 was the cheapest I've found for a studio apartment.



Anyway, I know I've been cryassing a lot about my situation, on the boards and in IRC, and I'll try to reign it in, but this college well and truly sucks. It has attracted a degenerate crowd that I cannot get away from, and that never wants to do anything except drink and smoke. I don't enjoy their company all that much even when I join in, so I can't win. There's no fun to be had, and believe me, I've been trying very hard.
I should be able to report good news fairly soon, since my family and I have already resolved to do something about it.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Discordia as a Religion?
« on: October 11, 2008, 10:49:18 pm »
I think Discordianism needs to be a religion, one that's heavily commercialized and compatible with popular culture, and as attractive as possible to people who are looking for something to tell them what to do. That way, we could take in millions and millions of suckers and program them to do things that subvert society without them having to necessarily be in on the plan at all.

Integrity vs. Money and Cult Leadership...  :lulz:  I know what I want!

We will, however, be obliged to lead an Inquisition against the people who call us False and claim to be Real Discordians.

Basically I'm surrounded by rich Long Island kids who can afford to wake-n-bake every single day (and then get stoned at night), and the not-as-rich kids who mooch off of them. I know of exactly one other student who is suffering in the same way as I am; everyone else is having a grand old time. Also, this is a very new college so there aren't any mature older students to level the playing field. And I'm not kidding--not even a little bit--when I say that someone there is going to die this winter.

My options are as follows: either I get my car there and find a cheap place nearby to stay and commute from (an affordable place in the Hamptons area, HAR HAR!), or I GTFO, skip the semester, and start over again at Stony Brook.

Thanks to everyone for sympathy/advice; I've realized that I am in a toxic situation and need to get out somehow. At the moment I'm back in Connecticut for the weekend, recovering.

Did you ever ask for a dorm re-assignment?

Wednesday night was EVERYWHERE. Nowhere is safe.

And besides, I'm the one who complains about sleep loss the most. They'd know it was me.

How could people hate the planet?

I  hate people, too.   :sad:

Which is why your punishment is to rule over humanity for all time. Like a Greek myth or some shit.
