I had some "religious" experiences during my childhood, got interested in meditation, vacillated between atheism, new age, and Judaism for a while. I don't know how I first came across Discordianism. It may have been an offhand reference by a nerdy friend or in something I was reading, it may have been off sacred-texts.com. The bulk of my exposure didn't happen until college. Discordianism initially appealed to me because the humor was a good mask for my uncertainty about my identity and values. Later I came to appreciate the concerns it raises. Discordianism is far more conducive to genuine dialogue over said concerns than any other religion, quasi-religion, or irreligion I have come across.
