Oh my god you've got one of those geodesic thingamawhatsits in your backyard! I loved that shit when I was a kid.

 :lol: These are ridiculous. Like, I'm pretty sure Dave Barry wrote an article about Internet slang 10 years ago that was more accurate, and he was kidding.

"Eris the Inevitable" is one of my favorite parts of Discordianism. And when I say favorite I mean AAAIEEEEEEEEE!

One more tiny step toward convincing white Americans that American indians are actual people.

Doubt it. This was a symbolic issue. The outrage machine, however justified in this case, doesnt deal in actual change, only in ratings. The problem most American Indians face isnt sports mascots, its crippling poverty, drug addiction and a lack of healthcare. Currently reservations have an infant mortality rate double that of the rest of America. You cant tweet a problem like that away, and more importantly, theres no bad guy to feel morally superior too. The media will move on to a new target and most of America will forget that Indians even exist.

I probably have a better understanding of the situation than you're assuming.

Your patience would put the Buddha to shame :lulz:

Yeah, my dad commented on how Erikson's style, as of finishing the third book, really makes it clear just how much is going on that he wants to tell us.

I was getting really into the second book, and then I left it in a friend's car :argh!: If I can't get it back soon I might just buy the damn thing again.

Crashed my car. Probably not gonna be worth repairing, so I'm buying my cousin's old car. Have to miss a day of work to hit up the DMV, when I was supposed to be starting a new task at work this week.

Could have been 100x worse, I'm totally fine, etc. But like, god damn it, you know?

I just slept for 12 hours. :eek:

Hey mate, I'm under 25 too (and currently a little drunk) and I can tell you: we may be one big neurotic clusterfuck of a generation, but by god we are marginally less buttfucked in the brain by Ayn Rand and Reaganomics, and we've got Netflix.

If that's not progress, I don't know what is.

Maybe I'll go insane, go back to school, and study material science. Kind of like I always sorta wanted to but was stymied by my weak math abilities.

I always was fascinated by it, in the same way most people are, but the fire wasn't really kindled until I had a Geology professor explain to me what quasicrystals are, and how they are essentially abominations unto nature that have no business existing in our universe, and yet here they are. I really should have switched academic paths then.

Pretty sure 90% of it went over my head when I was 12 and sleep-deprived. Might be worth a rewatch.

72
This was the first thing I saw at work today and I damn near shat myself. :lulz:

73
Yeesh, we settled this argument in like, 6th grade. I'm totally nonplussed on how to extract this rivalry meme out of a grown man's head.

A friend of mine, playing Dark Souls 2:

Why do the pigs have so much HP?  They're fucking pigs.  Oh my god.  Oh good lord...the pigs, they have mad cow disease!  Why are they so tough? 

After 30 seconds:

OK, we've killed one.  Maybe we can get one to fall in the pit?  They're trying to body slam me!  Three little pigs have taken me to half health.  I was just almost killed by three pigs.

Quoting a month-old post because TO HELL WITH THOSE PIGS is still relevant after all this time. Horrible goddamn monsters.

Also, Hoopla, I am reminded of one of the newsfeed items:

"You're miserable, edgy, and tired. You're in the perfect mood for PD.com"

(but seriously I hope you feel better soon)
