Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Intermittens: The non-Discordian Issue
« on: December 16, 2013, 07:51:04 am »
I think this idea's alright, but I'm confused. If the issue has nothing to do with discord, why would you make it an intermittens issue as opposed to coming up with your own one-shot magazine brand?

I mean, I realize that there are no rules for what you can write an intermittens about, but I wonder what the intent is. It's not like we have a huge loyal readerbase that will get your publication to hundreds of new eyeballs.
Discordia is all about having nothing to do with discord :lulz:

I still think the solution is to give Texas back to Mexico.

Give us the oil, keep the honkies.

OH WAIT not even oil in our land is ours due to the recent legislation.

Or Kill Me / Re: I Am A Nihilist
« on: December 15, 2013, 09:43:59 am »
That's what I'm here for, philosophical precision and, uh, pictures of cats.

I'm kinda surprised you hadn't looked so much at Existentialism though.  I thought I remembered you being interested in it...though I would totally understand being put off by Sartre's long exercise in obsfucation, aka Being and Nothingness.  Kierkegaard and Camus are far more accessible, and amusing in the case of the former.

I'm pretty well grounded in existentialism, for what amounts to a layman.  I've read everything Sartre wrote, and though I admittedly needed a guide to take me step by step through Being and Nothingness, I would argue that is because the book I read is not printed in English, despite being printed in English.  I know the words, but the sentences seemed not to add up to anything I could gather meaning from.  The guide was more helpful in that respect.  Besides that, his thesis is stated extremely directly and succinctly in Existentialism is a Humanism, which nobody would need a guide for.

I am admittedly less brushed-up on nihilism, despite my affirmation in the OP to being one.  I've read mostly second-hand accounts of nihilism, but was under the impression that I basically understood the concept(s).  I fully admit that I may be wrong about that.

I would, however, argue that my position is still existential nihilism.  Keep in mind, I made no claims about moral or epistemological nihilism, only existential (which probably makes the title incorrect, or at best overly sensational).  Others can create meaning for themselves if they so choose, but in all honesty I do not.  I mean, I prefer to be happy rather sad, but I'm not certain anyone would consider that a valid "meaning" on existence, apart from hedonists.  But, I don't consider myself a hedonist.  I'm content not to be happy at all moments.  And yes, while others can create meaning for their lives, I don't think their meaning... means anything.  If they find their notions pleasing, well, bully for them, it doesn't change my view of the universe.

I've had a couple drinks this evening, so this may not have made as much sense as I had intended.  But, I am open to Cain (or anyone else) picking apart what I have said for holes or mistakes.  I am here to learn, and if it turns out I am simply a tried and true existentialist and not an existential nihilist, I am completely fine with that.
I guess the bare bones of it is that anything beyond what you just said just amounts to frosting on the cake.  The trick is to not romanticize obvious: elation is not the same ex-stasis.  Happiness is not a value, however, it has meaning when you communicate it to others Because there is no reason to do so beyond transmitting the wonder itself.  If that sounds hokey, just try making sense of it by yourself :horror:

Twid, regarding posting complete thoughts, you might consider writing your post and then re-reading and editing it before you hit post.

I will do that, that way I can go through the process and not make an ass of myself.

This is a case of ICE running amok,” a DEA source told Conroy. “If this [operation] was being run by the book, they would not be doing it unilaterally” – without the participation of DEA – “and without the knowledge of the Mexican government.”

See, because otherwise the rendition would not be "extraordinary". :lol:

Better because, you know, extradition proceedings rarely get rendered to US by France, on principle. :lulz:

It even has a name now: "The Affluence Defense".

It's got more than a name now too, it's got precedent. This is going to be valuable as fuck for all sorts of people who could conceivably end up in courts in the next few years.

WFAA ABC reported that Miller said the teen’s parents gave him “freedoms no young person should have.”

gets me thinking that it's a small step to justify "I'm so rich I have freedoms no person should have" as a last ditch get out of jail. The main thing it seems you need to prove is that wealth disconnects you from the law which is making me start to laugh.

So freedom != responsibility...  Act accordingly.  :horrormirth:

I could not get that out of that image, am i missing something or do you have another source?
Just from that little snippet- The generally passive voice, then I could not help detecting "valley girl" in the expression "Umm what the hell".  Either way, the person is most def. confused  :lulz:
I have used that exact phrase.

Gag me with a spoon.
How about a nice oaky white wine?
