Check out the book "Would You Rather: MindF*cks" (Please Note that the asterisk in the title is an actual part of the book's title)

I picked up a copy of this over the summer, and thought that it might be of interest here. its got some pretty good weird ideas (like rocking out to the National Public Radio News, or answering exam questions in crayon, or asking the guy at the deli counter at your local supermarket for "The most human tasting meat that you have"

Now you see, this is the kind of biological research that I want to get into when I graduate college :lulz:...

Magnetic resonance imaging of male and female genitals during coitus and female sexual arousal

Midsagittal image of the anatomy of sexual intercourse :sheep:

(BTW, as far as I can tell, this is a real thing...)

Sucker.

He's worse.  He's the Anti-ANTI-Christ.

Position taken, Re: Dave Brockie.

Who?

Dave Brockie is perhaps better known by the stage name "Oderus Urungus". He's the lead singer of the rock band "GWAR". GWAR have published at least two songs about how they don't worship Satan like other metal bands do, because they feel that Satan isn't hardcore enough for their tastes. One of these songs was entitled "Anti-Antichrist", and it appeared on their album "The Violence has Arrived" (The other song was entitled "The One Who Will Not Be Named", and appeared on their most recent album, "Beyond Hell")

I like the new president, but I worry because he seems just a little bit too good. People treat him like he's some kind of god come down to Earth, which leads me to believe that he might be :fnord: The Anti-Christ  :mrgreen:

You people realize that "Yog-Sothoth" is supposed to be Je*ovah, right?

I realized this one day while reading a book about ancient egypt, and I noticed that the name that the Egyptians used to refer to the Hebrew God was "Yabo-Sabaho" (which sounds suspiciously familiar, doesn't it), and that this was explained, in a footnote as being a corruption of one of the Hebrew names for God. I did some more research and found that this was, indeed, a corruption of the phrase "YHV*-Sabaoth"*("J*hovah, lord of Hosts"). This sounds very similar, and I don't think that its a coincidence :fnord:
...And now you know the rest of the story.

There are a couple of episodes of Monty Python's Flying Circus in which the action of a sketch/skit is abruptly interrupted by a gruff army general who stops the sketch for being "Too silly"

Oh, and also, I forgot, there are generally a couple of articles per issue that are actually real (generally however this is limited to a short list of actual, yet really ill-advised, research papers that the editors have found out about)..

Techmology and Scientism / The Annals of Improbable Research
« on: February 13, 2009, 09:47:10 pm »
Check out the Annals of Improbable Research. I came across some old issues of this magazine in my college's library archives yesterday, mixed in with the real scientific journals, and I quickly decided that I had to look them up online... maybe order a subscription or something....

It reads like a science themed version of The National Lampoon. They have articles about things like repairing a black hole with spackle, feng-shui experimentation to isolate the "Ch'i Meson", A scientific study of whether you can really break the ground open with "groundbreaking" articles, et cetera...... I highly reccommend it!

Here's Three More:

1.) How about Les Miserables... The theme isn't "Order Vs. Chaos" per se, but it is, however, "Super-Rigid-Order Vs. Not-Being-A-Douchebag". (Inspector Javert represents being a rigidly lawful douchebag, and Jean Valjean represents not being a douchebag.

2.) Has anybody mentioned The Odd Couple yet?

3.) Also, how about Dennis the Menace (Dennis is chaos, and Mr.Wilson is order)

4.) In any episode of Spongebob Squarepants in which Spongebob interacts with Squidward, Spongebob (and Patrick) could be seen as representing chaos, and Squidward could be seen as representing order)

5.) In the Anime Irresponsible Captain Tylor, the title character could be seen as representing chaos; his skill as a military leader arises from the ironic fact that he has absolutely no idea what he is doing, and this makes it difficult for his enemies to predict his actions (which they assume, incorrectly, must have some overarching plan behind them)

Movies (Warning: Spoilers)

SkulHedFace, an hour long film by the heavy-metal rock band GWAR, deals with an evil space-alien (acting, for this thread's purposes, as an agent of evil order) stealing/harvesting the individuality the individuality of the members of rock-and-roll bands, in the form of a substance called "Jizmoglobin"

Renzezvous with RagNaRok, also by GWAR, involves a "Holy Robot From Outer Space" named "Cardinal Syn" coming to enslave the Earth (Evil Order)

Come to think of it, the conflict against forces of evil order is pretty much a common theme in all GWAR products.

It should probably also be mentioned, by the way, that GAWR themselves represent evil chaos, which is nonetheless consistently presented as still being preferable to evil order...

How about using the crazy barber's psychotic outburst from episode 9 of "Monty python" as a mantra:

"Razor Razor Razor! Cut! Blood! Spurt! Artery! Murder! Hitchcock! Psycho! (Damn!)"

None of this sissy, 'jewel in the lotus' bullshit :D

or you could add nutmeg (because I've heard...from my botany professor...that if you consume enough of it, it can have mild hallucinogenic effects :tinfoilhat:)...whatever suits you, really.....

According to my friend the effects aren't really mild (she was tripping for 3 days), but the amount you'd put in the drink wouldn't be enough to cause hallucinogenic effects.

Hmmm...I guess I misworded my earlier post a bit; I had meant to say that it was a mild  hallucinogen in the sense that, (as you touched upon in your response) it takes a lot more of it to produce a distinct hallucinogenic effect than it would to produce a similar hallucinogenic trip with psychadelic mushrooms or mescal buttons (my professor said that it generally takes about a full pound of it)
