I feel much better now,  a good night's rest.

Sorry I over reacted and have overacted since I got here.

I re-read some of my crap and I'm in agreement that my behavior has been pretty Twattish.

I've figured out the source of my butthurt and Doktor Howl was right.  :argh!:
I worry/am entirely too sensitive about other people's opinions of me.
Some of what you said was ruthless Dok, I technically owe you one for showing me a sensitive spot I was unaware of. In a good way.

I'm not gonna make a big mess about it, or try to pass it off.
I'll try to keep my fictions where they belong when chatting outside a thread made for the purpose.

Not really sure what to say.

I'm definitely not this blue winterhawk.  I saw the thread where some folks were ripping on him for stuff, but didn't really know who you were talking about and didn't look into it.  I don't plan to either.

I said "scribe" because I was feeling amused and it's an in joke between my friends and I, and he'll be portraying a character with that role in a fictional story I'm producing.

The temple comment was a joke to me as well.



Oh, yeah.  He has a scribe and "people" who will do as he tells them.  In short, this means he has a collection of damaged individuals whom he's vacuumed up into a WIZRAD JOE appreciation society, by telling them he's gonna teach them all universal secrets or some shit.

He basically turned into the preachers he was talking about, like a beaten kid will sometimes turn into an abuser.


Doktor Howl those are my friends you're characterizing.  You don't know them either.
In most cases I've known "MY People" for years.  Some of them are life long friends and could have my life from me if they needed it.

With whatever respect is due, you don't know who or what you're talking about.  It actually still makes me wonder if you're intentionally trying to pull my chain.  I mean come on, Universal Secrets?  They help me because I help them and I've proven trustworthy.  I know you have good friends here.  Why shit on mine when they're not?

There are some though Dok that another person cannot help.  I helped my self out of a nasty cycle and you seem to be bringing it up as some kind of barb to get at me.  Nice shot man.  THAT really did hurt.  Put it in you report Dok

I'm gonna take a nap to cool off for a bit, I'll catch up on this later.

Oh, and before you start protesting your wannabe guru status, allow me to remind you:

Was just chatting with my scribe while you all were posting.  Proper responses in a bit.

Most of my people don't actually know much about Discordia, but are definitely gonna learn as they go.

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS ASSBAGGERY?  YOU ARE AN ABOMINATION IN THE EYES OF THE SACRED WAYNE NEWTON.  THE TEMPLE MUST BE CLEANSED!

:crankey:

NOT the first time I've defiled a temple good sir.  I wouldn't say I even care to call what I have to do with Eris worship, but I do spend quite a bit of time on my knees nonetheless!!

You're just not serious about having a good time.

Clue for the clueless:  You can't get off the ride unless you kill yourself1, so you may as well learn to laugh at the horrible wrecks below each hairpin turn.

1  And then you get to work at the DMV forever.

You know in a way that's part of why I decided to make it a business doing pleasure.  Other than that it's a market that's VERY difficult to totally fuck up it also gives me a chance to laugh @ some of the worst in our nature, and maybe sometimes do something about it if I manage to make Real Cashtm.

Of course the biggest part of why I'm in it is the cash and the deluxe seating for viewing said horrible wrecks that makes possible.
When my ride also inevitably tips over the rails it would be nice to feel I made an impression before I made impact.

THIS IS WHERE YOU ARE FUCKING UP (the bolded bit).

You will make an impression WHEN you impact, so why not concentrate on enjoying yourself?  Life is too fucking important to take seriously, and no wannabe hipster guru ever actually had any funQUIT WORRYING ABOUT WHAT "IMPRESSION" OTHER PEOPLE GET FROM YOU.1

Rant for the sake of ranting, not for the adoration of trustafarian chicks with poor adequate2 personal hygiene.  Lose you shit for the sake of losing your shit, not for "doing something about it", as if you somehow knew what's best for other fucking primates.  Be the rage, not the perfectly orchestrated impression of rage.  Or just say "fuck it", get yourself an ironic hat and a tallbike, and join the mob of idiots infesting the streets of Seattle and Portland.

Jesus H Fucking Christ, who the fuck do you think you are?  Let the Goddamn humans make their own mistakes. 



1You might not believe how many people from diverse world views have told me this.  I think it's an artifact from being raised to believe in a God that EXPECTS something of me. I've made progress with this. You'd have found me perhaps irredeemably annoying 10 years ago.

2 Fixed.  I have standards.  :) 
When I originally started ranting it was for no reason other than that it felt good.  The truth is that the little topical rants I've posted here are a newer development for me and intentionally about trying to teach the damn dirty apes.  It's like sharing rice from my own empty bowl.  In truth there's nothing useful in me that can really help them and the ones that tell me they got something out of it mystify me.  They really believe I gave them rice.  I imagine this was how Barnum felt all the time.

About who I think I Am.  I guess I'm a person with as much compassion as rage kept in separate containers made by the lowest bidder(me). The way I run things now they're fuel when I mix 'em.  When I was much younger it was more like a binary explosive I had little control over. I will probably run out of one or both one day.

I am one of those mistake making humans Dok.  I've seen the broken get fixed, the dead brought to life(or at least start really living), the blind made to see. I remain personally unconvinced this is really doing anyone a favor and know for a fact that it's beyond my power, yet it happens. Then folks often go back into agony, despair, and ignorance...  sometimes very often willingly.

Right now I think I am mostly tired and need to crash and rise again in the morning to do the things I'm gonna do to make cash.  I do prefer having cash. That much I know for sure!  :D

You should know I'm sensitive about my retardation.  :p


This ain't gonna be your century, kid.

Hell, the way things are going on this planet I'm not sure I'd want it.

My upbringing left me with big expectations about the end of the world.  Now that I figured out that NOBODY OF ANY SORT is likely coming back for us, I'm disappointed by how it looks like things are gonna turn out. 

I think we'll manage to trundle along for a while as a species and ultimately fuck up the only thing that keeps us alive so badly that the systems we used to do it will become the new only thing keeping us alive.  Kind of like the underground society in 12 Monkeys.

That is, assuming that there's no astrophysical doom on it's way in to wipe the board soon.  Jury's still out for me on that possibility.

Hm...  You mean like the Idea that circumcision is a good and necessary thing?  more than a few religions picked that one up along the way and there's still contention about it.

If you've got an Idea that's gonna take off like that man please do share!

Do you think before you post, or are you just one of those stream of consciousness retards?

I did think before I posted.  I had to look up the meaning of conflated.  It means mixed in or fused or confused.  Most of religion seems that way to me.  Ancient traditions that may have had a purpose or meaning once, now pointlessly practiced.  They borrow and mix with each other much more freely than most followers would be comfortable with if they did some real homework.

Did I step on your pet Echidna or something?  Why you gotta poke at me man?

This post is inspiring something in me.  In my guts.  Way, way down, near the colon.

It is a terrible inspiration.  It is the sort of thing that bards sing about centuries later, and winds up getting conflated with 3-4 major religions.

For fuck's sake, this is the 21st Century.  EVERYTHING is poisonous.  Your food, your water, your TV, your politics, your sex, EVERYTHING.

There's no sense screaming about it to people who can't do anything about it, and have FAR more pressing concerns.  Telling a man who is on fire that he has skin cancer is hardly productive, if you catch my drift.  Right now, people are worrying about whether they'll be able to eat ANYTHING in 6 months, whether they'll have a place to stay, that sort of thing.  Telling them about radiation that has already escaped and can't be cleaned up serves no immediate purpose.

You really know how to make a point.

Point taken.

No.  That's a fear/loathing thing.  It has nothing to do with horror.

Fair enough Doktor.

There's a thread in Horrorology that explains the difference.

Besides, who the fuck worries about nuclear fallout, these days?  Most people would WELCOME it.

Yeah I read it.  It's one of the thumb tacked ones I believe.

Well, to me the horror of fallout is that there's no easy way to tell if there a radioactive element that mimics, say, calcium in a piece of fish or if there's uranium in the blood and glands of a lover or oxidized in the air.

It's also an unknown fear of the future in that even small amounts can cause mutation in a population and we recently received... um, not small amounts on a coastline.

I've got this darn soft spot for people you see. It's a life long and crippling malady..

Is there any particular reason you quoted all that without adding any commentary to it?
:eek:
Sorry, accident with the interface I think.  I modded it to say what I meant to.

:x And I thought I was shameless and self-promoting.  Hmmm.  :roll: I feel a plot coming on...  I'll see what hatches.  PETA needs to have their ethical limits tested.  :evil:  
(or at least made fun of) :lulz:

I think you should really do some research first... PETA is one of the last organizations I can think of that needs to have their ethical limits tested, because they don't seem to have any. These people steal dogs from shelters and then kill them, by the truckload. They are scum.

HolyCrap!  I can't even digest this right now.. or my lunch.

what?!  :eek:
for real? like, verified?
they do this regularly?

Did you google it? Because yes.

This was all over the news a few years ago.

You are.  You're just not much good at it.


Yeah, but I think in my heart I've got the shameless bit down.

Also, as a side note

I've refrained from posting to your threads cuz I said i would, but particularly liked the stuff in Horrorology.  Would it be cool to post about nuclear fallout there? the topic seems fit to the board.

Alright, Any questions, comments and snide remarks intended for me are welcome here.

I'll try to be cool.  8)

I may frequently fail at this.   :lulz: :oops:

I'm ready to throw my hood back and chat like civilized primates, but if it's funny just post away!

Who u calling a primate?  :crankey:

:pokewithstick:

Um, ya know I'm not really sure humans count now that I think of it..   :roll:Hell, some humans think they're not even human.  What would you call yourself? 

Me, I get called a lot of things. :)


I dont like using tags to define myself, man!

But if i really have to, id call myself an existential hipster.

Maybe I could call myself an Optimystic apostate with reason to laugh(at).

I also though prefer not to put on labels unless they're part of a costume or something.
