I don't know how someone can fail to grasp the principle of bodily autonomy so completely. Must require a pretty thick layer of misogyny smeared over one's reality filter.

Oh. You're stupid. I forgot.

I'm so sorry.

But what about abortion rights

Not important except when it's medically necessary.

I'm more worried about how racist he is and the fact that everything he's run in the past has gone bankrupt

Have you considered not being a waste of human flesh? Your organs could be put to much better use in lots of people.

Like, you've got blood, two kidneys, bone marrow to spare, and probably plenty of skin. Any of those could be medically necessary to save a human life if you're a biological match. There's no real reason to give you the right to bodily autonomy over your spare parts as long as they don't take enough to kill you.

On account of the shit-talking and general hissy fits of the partisans of Sanders & Clinton.

You gotta stop with all this Prophecy shit, it's giving me the heebie-jeebies.

Hi I'm Eris and I haven't actually used a forum in so long that I've gotten really rusty, but who doesn't like some oxidization? I'm a crazy woman in The Big Apple and I split my time between petting some sweet ass floofcats, working with electronics, and beating the rich (the rich actually taste like shit, even deep fried, so this is a preferable option). What brings me here is Illuminatus!, which I finally read about 30 years after everyone else. I have NOT YET read the full PD actually, I'll get to it when I feel like it. Lately I'm trying to find digital copies of ole RAW dawg for Historical Illuminatus! & on, because I'm lazy and I have an ebook reader. I'm not asking here, just... casually mentioning that.

Don't bother, it's utter shit. It changed my life and now look where I am.

EDIT: Also, you're in NYC? We should totally make a vague promise to meet up some time and then never follow through. I met a lot of my current friends in meatspace by agreeing to meet some freaks from this forum.

In retrospect, this thread might not actually belong in Aneristic Illusions. We'll have plenty of time to discuss politics proper, but my post was about what this horrible religion of ours stands for.

Our terrible goddess is, unfortunately for all of us, inevitable and relentless. And She's just pulled up the curtain on Her next show.

Oh, frabjous day!
Holy Strife has come to play.

Blood-stained goddess and hidden dagger,
One fucked-up forum's peals of disgusted laughter

Welcome back to 2000, Pee Dee Dot Com. It's like we never left, but it's bigger, meaner, and uglier than ever.
Oh, frabjous day!
Holy Strife has come to play.

Blood-stained goddess and hidden dagger,
One fucked-up board's peals of disgusted laughter

Giggling, swarming, whores of Babylon
Who for so long have sought to reach Avalon

Yet that sword has been torn from rock asunder
By screaming, waxing, gods of order

An order yet unfit for job
of holy hodge and holy podge

So now that we, unnarmed and scared
Have seen a vision that was quite fair

we fight for it, tooth and claw
down with every unjust law

Hail Eris!
Hail Discordia!

kill me.
You don't get the choice this time.


On this day, Eris has blessed us. She's really royally fucking blessed us.

Blessed us like the bunch of goobers we are.

God this reaction to Trump has really ingrained my hatred of liberals. Remember when Obama got elected and the anti-war people just disappeared? Why was the destruction of the 4th Amendment the end of Democracy under Bush but under Obama it was just meh? All you assholes care about is that Democrats are in office. And then when they get in office and do THE SAME FUCKING SHIT youre all obsessed with gender pronouns or some stupid bullshit.

Obama wasn't as much "fun." Really that's all there is to it.

Also you certainly are drawing some wild assumptions about me, unless you're just yelling into the void for some reason.

Well, on the plus side, PD has a reason to exist again.   :lulz:

Trump: Making PD great again.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who had this thought. Makes me feel all icky and awful.

Welcome back to 2000, Pee Dee Dot Com. It's like we never left, but it's bigger, meaner, and uglier than ever.

I mean, if they're getting paid to figure out how to cause enough of a ruckus to blackmail the IT guys into building them bodies in the next level out to get downloaded into, I could get behind that.

Interesting idea:  As we burn up each given Earth, we download ourselves into a new version.  Which gets burned up because everyone realizes at some level that the way we act is unsustainable.  Then one day on the original Earth, lack of maintenance causes the system to fail, and we all wake up in an unbreathable soup of overheated atmosphere.

That reminds me of the plot (well, really the sub-plot) of R Scott Bakker's Disciple of the Dog. In that, there's a cult which believes that it's really the year 5 billion and everyone on earth is actually hanging out in a simulation on a ruined planet, and the Sun is about to blow up. The rest of humanity is living it up off-world, presumably. The rat bastards.

Oh they could get rid of me if they really wanted to, I'm sure. But at this time I still have enough niche expertise that letting me go would be rather inconvenient for them. And I'm liked well enough on a personal level that being too cold-blooded would reflect badly on the person who pulled the trigger.

Still, I'll hit the "three years of experience" mark by the end of this winter. And that's if I don't fuck off before then.

Petty work shit is now affecting me, and perhaps I've just been exposed to too many TGRR Mind Lazors in my lifetime, but I have come to two conclusions in the past 24 hours:

1) They're all motherfuckers.
2) They're out to get me.

I was very ill from January until about this past August. During most of that time, my work performance got more shoddy than usual. I tried my level best to ensure that people knew exactly how much work they could get out of me, once I knew what the issue was. I believe that the time I spent being less useful annoyed enough people that the gears have now turned against me.

So now they have hired a fresh young recruit, probably two years younger than me, to replace me without actually replacing me. I was hired with the intention of being mostly a tech geek (GIS, specifically) with the option to do field grunt work when the schedule demanded it. This new guy is full-time GIS, and I have been "shifted" to do more field work. I can also tell that he knows he's here to replace me, and that he feels badly about it. He's not old, bitter, or treacherous enough yet to stick his thumb in my eye.

A majority of our clients are in the boroughs of NYC, and I live on the far eastern end of Long Island. For those unaware, Long Island is named such because it is very fucking long. Normally I would spend my time in the office on Long Island, which has not been a problem. A one-way trip into NYC for me is approximately 2 hours if I leave my house at about 4 AM. But I'm a good sport and willing to put in a little overtime. I get paid for drive time and reimbursed for mileage, after all, so it's not so bad as long as I can find time in the day to, yanno, sleep.

But now I've done all last week and been scheduled for all of this week to drive into Brooklyn for brain-draining oversight jobs. Instead of hiring a body from the city to do city jobs and keep me in my initial capacity, they've put me in a position where I am spending four hours a day on the road, minimum.

Considering the cost of paying me extra hours and mileage, I offered that they could buy me a cheap motel room close to the site. The response I got was a lot more, shall we say, crisp than I had anticipated. There was a lot more in that reply than just the reply. I have been scolded for my unsatisfactory performance.

It's time to put the spit-polish on that resume. Damn shame, really.

All absolute beliefs are stupid.

This sounds like a zenarchist's koan

Only if it's the kind of zen where you get to beat on fuckers with a stick.  Zazzen or some shit like that.

"The Stick of Compassion," as it is known.

Those Zen motherfuckers have a great sense of humor.

As long as they hid the skillet well enough your odds are over 30 %.

For 3rd degree burns.

Naw, but what DID happen is that I got a whole-leg cramp in my left leg that seems to have damaged muscle around my left knee and ankle.

You know that water chemistry problem I've been working on?  where it basically rains distilled water and there's no alkalinity?  well, I've been drinking that water this whole time and I seem to have washed out my electrolytes.  Took some mag and potassium, and the cramp evaporated.  But not the insanely sore muscles.  So now I'm stumping around like Igor.

Low-Sodium V8 is my preferred way to get potassium, once I'm sick of shoving bananas into my face. The only downside is, of course, that V8 tastes like a cold salt-marsh puree.
