All these labels and descriptors to box ourselves in. Why can't we all just be Transhuman?


I can now actually describe myself as something that no one has ever described themselves before.


I guarantee you it's been done on Tumblr.

So I got to go to the hospital today. Thanks, vodka!

Glad you're presumably ok. And vodka will do that.

Yeah, I'm pretty much fine now and laughing my ass off. Basically, my body started rejecting water whenever I tried to drink it. I had to get an IV drip so I could take in fluids without vomiting them back up. I can't eat anything really substantial for a couple of days, but I should be fine in the long term. Also, I get to tell people that I've been poisoned, which sounds so much cooler than "sick".

What's odd is that this exact thing happened to me a couple of years ago when I tried eating food from my workplace.

So I got to go to the hospital today. Thanks, vodka!

I'm working on clarifying the difference between a legitimate activist and an SJW.

So far, an activist wants to make things better.  An SJW wants to trumpet butthurt at the expense of making things better.

An activist is interested in advancing their cause.  An SJW *IS* The Cause.

Nailed it. Improving the world is great, but there's a point where you become nothing more than an opinion in human skin.

Ray Bradbury. Hell yes.

It's them's that's missing the point.

He used "afraid of life" as an argument about "miserable bastards".

Oh, okay.  I was worried that I was missing something obvious.

Also, no mention of "illegitimate" prior to his own post, so that's a clear misuse of language on his side.

I dismissed that as incomprehensible jargon.  I THINK it means "not accepted by this group".

I think he took "bastard" literally. I think he thought you were calling them miserable illegitimate offspring. That is exactly how thoroughly he missed the point.


Jesus, they're little savages.

This just in:  TGRR defeats Verthaine at Full Contact Milk.


I want in on it.

Looks like a milk-drinking contest. Seeing if they can drink a litre of milk in an hour and hold it down the longest.
I've done it, it's bad times.

Techmology and Scientism / Re: Fuck the System

You know, when you're not being a provocative asshole, you're really quite eloquent.


EDIT: I've always been kind of amazed that computers can even work. I mean, the display alone, even for something as simple as a command line, must require a volume of data incomprehensible to the human mind. This isn't even getting into shit like real-time rendering in game engines.

Aneristic Illusions / Re: Cain, help

I know I'm not Cain, but what's going on?

Also, there's something about the Portland mannerism that really fucks up communications with people who aren't from here. People from San Francisco and Oakland kind of get it, but from anywhere else, it's a trainwreck of crossed wires waiting to happen. In person, people think we're too nice, passive, and polite. In writing, people think we're giant dicks who put things way too bluntly. People who are from here tend to say whatever they're thinking, but somehow the delivery softens it too much and nobody can hear it, or they get confused by the gentleness of the delivery and accuse us of being passive-aggressive. I think it's because we talk slowly and tend not to be very loud. That and talking in newscaster english probably confuses people. Keep on fucking that chicken!

I kinda want to move there now.

It also seems probable that animism, for example, isn't as popular because we know enough about science that on the scale of an individual object, we can analyze it and find a concrete physical explanation for its behavior that doesn't require any kind of personification. It's when we get to something as large-scale as the universe itself that our capacity for analysis breaks down due to the sheer volume of information that has to be taken into account. Our brains don't like leaving loose ends, though, so we shrug and personify it just to be done with it.

My first Saturday Night in a long time was this Thursday. I don't know anyone in this city, so I joined a Pathfinder game over Skype with some internet nerds. Heavy homebrew, space opera setting, still fun as shit. I know it'll be really, really unbalanced and I'll probably die in the first combat, but so far I'm having fun anyway as a cleric of Azathoth. I'm also quickly becoming the party troll, in a way that the rest of the group seems to find genuinely funny.

I took the Evangelist archetype, so I'll be spouting nihilistic rants in the midst of combat about the intrinsic meaninglessness of life and apathy of my god of choice, and the party'll get morale bonuses for it.

And Morrigan is slated to have a role in the new DA:I game this fall...though most people believe she won't be able to join your party.

Unfortunately, I've been experimenting with Skyrim mods, looking for other paying writing gigs and doing background research this week, which means I have been lax on recording.  I'm going to do a marathon session tomorrow, but it may not get uploaded until Saturday at the earliest, and Wednesday at the latest (night shifts Friday and Sunday, followed by tutorials Monday and Tuesday mean my sleep patterns are going to be extremely out of whack for the upcoming week).

However, I'm hoping to get to, at the very least, the end of the Stone Prisoner DLC, which will allow us to recruit Ferelden's foremost hater of pigeons and give us another game choice.

What kind of mods do you use for Skyrim? I mainly stick with gameplay and immersion mods, like SkyRe and Lively Inns and Taverns. I find Skyrim's the kind of game that can be fun with copious modding, but as a vanilla game Bethesda kinda dropped the ball.
