I once found a note I'd written without any recollection of it that said "The clock that is stopped is not broken; it has arrived."
There's a sucker born every minute... and you are right on time.

OK then.I. I've F5'd a million times.. I.. might. What are the symptoms??
We are incurably diseased. Most here are malformed and disturbingly subnormal. We're almost exclusively mentally deficient in some way and we laugh about it. About everything.
And it's quite catching. You're probably already riddled and there is no cure.
Sleep well. Eoc is watching you so he'll let us know if you do.
It's a terrible thing when you have to explain your references.
Take today for instance. My wife's had a bit of pain resulting in an overnight stay in hospital. Pain coming in waves, bit of a shit, times when she can talk and laugh and times when she.... can't. All resolvable and should be fine in less than 24 hours. Good stuff modern medicine.
So suggesting that if the current treatment doesn't work, we can always look at the "Old Yeller" option didn't exactly get the response I expected from the 20-ish and late 40's-ish nurses.
"Err... You know, the film?"
"Never heard of it"
"Pretty famous film, a kid and his dog..."
"Is it new?"
"I've got a dog, let me find my phone"
"...and the dog gets rabies....."
"My dog's got a disorder too"
"...What? No, the kid, you know, shoots it"
"OH MY GOD"
" (Untranslatable gibbering)"
".... It's a pretty famous film"
In my defence I really don't think this is an obscure reference.
For the first time in 5 years, I have my whole family together again.
Excellent work that two legged Komodo.
Why don't you offer to show them what you've learned in the kitchen over the past few weeks?
I think we could throw together a kickass recipe book if we went for it, I love the PD style.
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.
I'm Balthazar and I'm from Idaho, the potato capital of the world. When I'm not meat-puppeting for the man I try to make sense of things. I have failed miserably in this regard. It really could be turtles all the way down. I knew about Discordianism way too early to appreciate it and read the Principia Discordia embarrassingly late. Eris shouted something into my ears but I've the metaphorical cotton shoved too far in there to hear, now I'm in search of the metaphorical tweezers to pull it out.
The wise man Douglas Adams once said: “There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
I've been so much of a make-sense-of-things-aholic that I forgot to stop and smell the roses. I need a support group or something. I'll happily settle for something.
Day 3 of being alone in the house.
I have scurvy. My extremities are frozen. I am reduced to eating rats.
That's an interesting way of spelling "lizards."
Arizona has both. Gigantic poisonous lizards and rats the size of guinea pigs.
Are you sure they aren't guinea pigs?
