If it wasn't for your verbose shit, my slight poomp would have never been squeezed out.

Oh, wow.

As a recovering idealist, this hit home.

It also brought back memories of middle school.  "If I reason with them, they won't beat me up...WHAM!"

Thought:  A Discordian Roast.

We eulogize and mock the Old Guard, and announce we're stealing their ideas and running away with them.

This could be funny.

Needs editing and clarification, most likely.

Shrapnel.  Something exploded, and a piece of it embedded in your flesh.  Now you have to carry that around with you for the rest of your life.

It affects you.  In changes the way that you behave, you take the experience of being hit by that shrapnel with you in every decision that you make.  Even if you remove it, the scar remains.  Even in its absence, it informs your decisions.

For the most part, the explosions are essentially random, when taken from a subjective view.  Someone else planted these things, and you walk right into it.  These things may have exploded centuries ago, but the shrapnel is still in the air.  Still able to pierce into the heart of you. 

Often, they tell you where to go.  They push you onto new paths, or keep you going down the one youíre on.  They can blind you, they can cripple you, they can make you afraid to continue.  They can accumulate, like scales, like armor, like a lead weight.  Given enough time, they can even render you impervious to other bits of shrapnel.  But not forever.

Shrapnel is not subtle.  Itís just that we donít recognize it for what it is.  We get hit full in the face, and we donít even realize what just happened.  We know something just went down, but what? 

You heard a symphony.
You read a story.
You went to school.
You got a job.
You fell in love.
You got into a fight.
You fell out of a tree.
You were mugged.
You got an erection.
You listened to a preacher.
You took drugs.
You got lost in the woods for 3 days.

You lived your life.  And you carry that with you.  Each thing that got the limbic system pumping, every ďaha!Ē, all the moments of simmering rage, each instant of blissÖ They all left their bits of shrapnel in you.  They all push and prod you in directions you might not even have intended to go.

But you donít have to be one of the walking wounded.  The choice is yours.  Self-surgery is messy, but itís possible.  Search out the bits that got stuck into you, see if theyíre worth keeping.  Then get a pair of pliers and an exacto knife, and get to it.

What, exactly, makes us so different than every other modern counter culture that thinks it figured something out the rest of the masses didn't?

Bacon, vocoders, and pterodactyls.

Has anyone else paid up?

Actually, yes.

So you don't have to feel that you were the only sucker who paid.

Although, to be honest, I mostly wear fun undies for me (though this might be a side effect of the prolonged singleness). I enjoy sitting places and thinking, "hot damn. These panties are awfully soft and comfy, and yet sexy as all hell. I am awesome. 8)" Beneath my mundane appearing exterior, I AM SECRETLY SEXY. I'm an undercover agent of sexy. It's great!

However, that means jingling tends to interfere with my stealth. I try to avoid it.

Now that you're in Cambridge, you seem to be the perfect candidate to pick up a pair of:

That's right, a "live poultry fresh killed" THONG.

I have some questions of my own.

1. Why are all the Discordians I've seen so hot?

Natural selection.

2. What the fuck is the deal with guys not liking sex anymore? WTF

The next elected president will have the likely possibility of placing THREE justices on the Supreme Court.

THAT decision will last for GENERATIONS.

Do you want three Scolias, or three Ginsburgs?
