Absolute fucking guarantee that Domscheit-Berg is on BoA's payroll. And, most likely, they have guns pointed at his family.

Bet he's dead from "suicide" within a couple of years.

Layton?  He wasn't even all that old.

Cancer got him.

Cramulus warned us about the incidious danger of cancer babies, but would the Canadians listen?

Those fuckers are VORACIOUS.

Glad to see assange was never interested in the duty of surving society for its overall betterment and was instead just interested in the celebrety of being Mr Leaks.

It wasn't Assange. It was his former partner, who seems to be in the pocket of the Con and is trying to start his own, media-friendly "leaks" corporation.

By "retraining", when I said "No one really understands it, and very few are even studying it", I was specifically referring to the mechanism and process by which the physical damage to the brain caused by neglect and abuse can be reversed, but other than that I agree with your post 100%.

I would also add that one of the most important things you can learn is to not be afraid of "seeming rude". People who have been abused, whether emotionally or physically, tend to be much nicer and more forgiving of transgressive behavior than people who haven't, and this sends the wrong message to people looking to take advantage. This goes all the way to subtle, automatic things like smiling at people you don't really want to approach you, or letting a man sit at your table when you'd really rather he leave you alone. I'm learning that anytime anyone tries to test my initial "no thank you", that is a person who needs to be kicked in the face. If you say "No, that's OK" and they say "Really, I insist" THEY ARE CROSSING YOUR BOUNDARIES, and it is a guarantee that they will continue to do so. That's your cue to put down a harder line, and since they have already disrespected you, you need have no fear of being rude. Likewise with anyone who tries to guilt, wheedle, or strongarm you into anything you've expressed reluctance to do. Learn to recognize that for what it is... a disrespectful pushing of your boundaries... and you will fairly quickly find that kind of people exiting your life, as they go off in search of people who are easier to pressure and manipulate.

Be rude, be a jerk, better yet, laugh in their faces... it doesn't matter as long as you learn to enforce your "no".

Discordian Recipes / Re: Pie or Cake?

Cake is alright. Cake is like a combination of bread and sugar. Which are okay. Pie, however, can be made of ANYTHING. Fruits, pudding, meat, cheese, veggies, etc.

Clearly, Pie is superior, thanks to its versatility.

I make a killer egg salad sandwich pie.

But I have also made cake out of things that most people don't think cake is made out of. I made a delicious onion cake, and beet cake, while odd, is not un-tasty.

Meat cake is a little trickier, but as you saw, it's not so tricky it can't be done.

Onion cake you say? Hmmm. perhaps it could be.

However, I'm pretty sure that meatcake was merely a creative meatloaf. Which, may or may not be a cake.... DISCUSS.

"Cake" has a very broad definition. I make quinoa cakes, which have more in common with quiche. Pancakes are delicious and you can put anything in them, including chocolate chips and bacon, at the same time if you want.

Crepes and blintzes are pancakes with PIE FILLING.

Much like Boston Creme Pie, they are both PIE and CAKE at the same time.

Whangarei, where I used to live, has some pretty serious drink-spikers.
It's common practice in cases where a girl realises she has left her drink unattended for her male companions to buy her a new one and drink from the potentially drugged glass. Often this results in their being too sick to attend work the next day and losing a day's pay for the cost of a drink.

But they're MOAR GENTLEMANLY for it, so it's okay.

This test will ruin their only opportunity to be gentlemen. I hope you're all happy.

Yes, I suspect we all are.

And that the gentlemans will find a way to prove their gentlemansly ways that might not involve hampering their own well-being.

I FUCKING HATE the fact that Facebook made it so that you can add, without approval, any person on your friends list to any group. I think that was a monumentally bad idea. On THAT basis, I am hugely in favor of doing it, in order to piss off enough people to change it. That was the basic premise of the original "ADD EVERYONE" group. But, even though they shut it down, it didn't change that feature.

I think that in terms of basic good judgement, it should be obvious that you should not add the real profiles of people you care about or respect on any level to any groups that, by their names alone, could obviously harm their social or career standing.

I quit celebrating Christmas about 11 years ago. I have hated it since I was a kid, and when I split with my first baby-daddy I just figured it would be easier if I took Winter Solstice (as Yule) and he kept Christmas. So now, we have a big dinner with a lot of friends and a couple of presents, and he gets to have the whole Christmas experience. And all the pressure. Funny thing is, the kids look forward to Yule even more than they look forward to Christmas. Fewer presents, yes. But also less pressure, and way more fun.

Then it has to become like a virus scanner, updatable to test the latest drugs. Of course, so far I've been totally fine by just never letting my drink out of my sight, and always going to the bar with any new person who wants to buy me a drink.

Once when I was in my early 20's I was out dancing, and this old (probably about my age now, but he seemed so old then!) black guy freaked out on me and my friend because we left our drinks at the bar and went out on the floor and then came back to them... he was like "What the hell! NEVER leave your drink alone and then come back and drink it! Some sleazebag could have put something in it!" and then he made us throw out our drinks and had the bartender bring us new ones. He was all "don't take your eyes off it until it's in your hands." Then he lectured us about it for about half an hour, and told us to take our drinks to the bathroom if we needed to. 
I assume that he was a dad and identified our stupid young asses with his daughter. I never forgot that and always take my drink with me.


It would be nice if there were other methods for making sure, especially if you're out on a second or third date with someone, or out with a boss or co-workers who you should be able to trust to guard your drink.

It's a pretty fucked-up world.

Not bad, for a non-poet.

Not the song of the bridges; no, thatís not so loud in the summer. Not the lure of the tunnels, because I havenít been to the tunnels for two years and Iím not sure I can go back anymore, maybe not ever again. This time, again, itís the hum of the End of the World, and itís getting stronger, closer than it ever was. North. Itís always north. I feel hunted, I feel chased. I want a gun and a supply of canned foods and a full gas tank, and to get on the road, to run, run.


Sweet mother of fucking THIS.

Perhaps bizarrely, in the last year I have found many articles in the Christian Science Monitor to be extremely accurate and unbiased, after heavily cross-referencing with other sources. They are absolutely less biased than most mainstream US media outlets, and seem to actually fact-check, which is unusual in "journalism" these days.
