Techmology and Scientism / Re: Khan Academy
« on: August 11, 2011, 08:07:27 am »
If I recall these folks got a pretty big grant from Google a while back that put them briefly on my radar.
Looks like the site has benefited tremendously!
I am self educated (read: eclectic but thorough when interested), and I just love free knowledge.
The business and finance sections seem pretty good, though I'm not expert and have not (yet) gone through them all.
Actually enjoying the history section's Haitian Revolution lesson.

I'm fortunate to have learned how to learn quickly. 
It is a mildly ironic by-product of a rigorous Christian School curriculum from grades 4-6.
When I was put back in the public system I was pretty much burnt out, got crappy grades, and haunted the libraries and computer labs learning whatever I wanted.

This didn't get me far financially and academically, but at the time the knowledge was enough for me.
Now that I'm older I'm really more interested in the application of knowledge, but I never stopped learnin'!

Right, this may be the last for a month or so.  (Edit: This will be the last in this series)
Terrible case of the throat-nasty has left me with an unsatisfactory voice for a bit.  
Hope all concerned enjoy this one.  I recorded it about a month ago.
It's the first one recorded since I started posting here.

Greetings General_Apathy.

Here's your pseudo-crypto exposed.


Quote
To invoke the hive-mind representing chaos.  Invoking the feeling of chaos.  with out order.  the Nezperdian hive-mind of chaos.  zalgo.  He who Waits Behind The Wall.  Prepare yourself

This was embedded in the gibberish.  Not sure what to make of it, my invocations of "pure" chaos never really went beyond the thinking it :x stupid :x and not doing it stage.

Nobody here's gonna freak out if your face shreds open and a thousand shrieking, formless outer-things spill forth or something. 
Most of the folks here are not only prepared already, but find it annoying to keep cleaning up after the mess.
The designated  :vom: "Spilling Forth of Ultimate Chaos" zones are clearly marked, and have a material safety data sheet (MSDS) nearby.

Also, I think I met He who Waits Behind The Wall at a gloryhole convention...
   :oops:  It's not important why I was there, but the little bit I'm sure he let you see on your side of the wall is false advertising. 
I assure you.

Literate Chaotic / Re: 23 Discordian Ebooks
« on: July 27, 2011, 09:58:09 am »
I'm trying to DL it on BT right now and it seems to be ok so far.

Thank you very kindly for the books!  :)

I'll continue to seed it as well. 

God I love free books!

When I came here I was really impressed with the number and varying style of the expansions on Discordia you folks have put together.

Gonna be a bit to digest, but it's cool   8)  :fap:

I try.  If it doesn't work and the consequences of failure were livable, I try again.  I'm happy to make a realish acquaintance with the folks on this board!  :)

If I annoy folks here, I'm REAL sure I'll know.

This one must be stopped before he breeds, or all of our plans are ruined.

Feed 'im to the nessie in the pool.


Uhm..  I did read a bigger chunk of that thread. Enough to know I'm kinda hosed, but given the trend, I may have a surprise for the nessie too, but ..                                       I think it's only sane to start running now...___---- - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -  -   -  -  - >|!_!_ Ow! alright fine.. I'd prefer a knife if that's how it is though! and a minute to take some amphetamines.  I just quit smoking so if I live for a few ragged, horrible moments afterward I might want a cigarette.

No but really, I came here to play ball, and it's not like I'm gonna do that effectively by being persistently a jerk.

JESUS H CHRIST!  IT'S A GODDAMN MIRACLE!  I CAN DIE HAPPY NOW!

Seriously, this has never happened before.  For real.  Every other person that got an unlimited thread dug his or her heels in and exploded gloriously.

On the downside, I may have to hate you less...Which means I'm going to need more antacids.

Also.. what is an unlimited thread technically?

One of two things:

1.  The definitive thread about a given subject, or

2.  A dumping ground for posts by someone spagging up the board.  

It's ok... just breathe and um.. stuff. Miracles can be hard to deal with.
You can keep hating me if it helps! Try not to think about the cross section (+) marks on the antacid too much...

Also entertainment 101: show the people what they haven't seen before.  also works in fights and in bed. and the dinner table.  Definitely don't recommend it in court tho.

It's a repository. For you!

Look up some of the others, they're fun reading.
Hey I have a question for you about something in another thread I didn't want to spag up, may I use your fancy thread here for that?

Yeah sure.  That sounds like a perfectly good use for this.  Welcome to my landfill, pull up a used milk crate and fire away!

I've decided that as a way to keep my more wordy crap off the threads I'll use this one. 
It was gonna be my garbage anyway.
I'll just post a quote from what I'm looking at and comment to my hearts content here, that way I won't step on toes and IF someone wants to hear my crap from the rest of the forum they'll find it here. 
I apologize to those I've snapped at and for jumping blind into these forums without understanding the etiquette and problems of the place.
I do love and think I understand Discordianism, but know that I'm still learning.

Holyshit dude. You may be the first spag ever to turn around an UNLIMITED thread. That your attempting it is epic.

I gotta say. I'm slightly impressed.

And so far, he's been as good as his word.  I haven't had to move any of his regular posts here.

Weird... It's like I'm some kind of chosen one or something.  Do any of youall get this kind of vibe?  It's all tingly.... :magick:

No but really, I came here to play ball, and it's not like I'm gonna do that effectively by being persistently a jerk.
You can expect me to hold to my word on almost all occasions..
Got a much rougher start here than I bargained for, but... eh!  
It wasn't easy stealing the "The" on my name either...

And I did turn this thread around...  the effects just need to develop.  
I'll also probably just outright link to and review posts that may not really require a bump to say something.
Pretty busy right now tho.

Just read from the start. You also poked Roger.

Don't poke Roger.

IT'S IMPOLITE TO POKE DEAD PEOPLE.

BUT IT IS A RELIGIOUS IMPERATIVE TO POKE ROGER, IF YOU PASS HIM IN THE ROAD.

EXPLAIN THAT, DOKTOR.

NO, IT IS A RELIGIOUS IMPERATIVE TO CRAP ON HIS GRAVE.  WE ONLY TELL PEOPLE THE POKING BIT FOR OUR OWN SICK AMUSEMENT.

"BOMBS AWAY, SWEET PRINCE" HE CRIED TO HIS FALLEN COMRADE AS, KECKS AROUND HIS ANKLES, HE SQUATTED OVER THE MOUND OF FRESHLY TURNED (THOUGH DUSTY AND ALMOST, BUT NOT QUITE, ENTIRELY LIFELESS) ARIZONA EARTH.

FOR IT IS HOW HE WOULD HAVE WANTED IT. WROTE IT IN HIS WILL.

Fixed.

I have to change my avatar again. For I have just noted that the board is without its spiritual advisor and I am therefore (probably) responsible for all the bullshit in recent weeks.

Probably, but we're gonna blame Sister Gothique anyway.

Well she DID have to "Move Away" from Tucson. No wonder things are fucked up everywhere.

Well she DID have to "Move Away" from Tucson. No wonder things are fucked up everywhere.

She was brought low by a pretty boy.  This is not uncommon for her.  However, what IS uncommon is that she chose to move - for reasons even she can't explain - to North Carolina, where the ticks have first names.  It's kind of like that Persephone chick, only she doesn't come back for half the year.

Legend has it that a hero can bring her back, as long as he doesn't eat any fried foods while in NC or look back on his way up the jetway in Tucson.

It sounds like a mission for a Holy ManTM

Unfortunately, I'm too busy cleaning up that fucking mess you and Nigel left in the ancient Mayan temples in Siberia.

That was her idea.  She's all like "The line is too long", and I'm like "What are you gonna do about it?", and she's all like "RAAAAAAAAAAAAAWR!" and then there was squishy noises and something that sounded like a giant ratchet, and the blood went UP the pyramid, and I said "Haven't you got that backwards?", and she says "WHAT NOW, BITCH?"

Nigel is a terrible thing to happen to anyone, but at least with her, you don't have to wait in line at tourist attractions.

Perfect for when you travel to exotic lands, if they would let her through customs...

The customs guys tried to stop her, but she smiled at them and they all wandered off and fed themselves through the underside of the luggage conveyor.  They didn't even scream.  It was awful.

I heard that Squiddy learned that smile. I hear she used it down in Swampland in 2000 on some convention for people called Chad.

:spittake:

 :lulz:  Whew!  That's awesome, it's got Terror!   Adventure!   Romance!   and....   a dollop of spiritual consideration...  WOW.  I'm pretty sure you guys weren't even really letting go...   Good show!

Wordy is fine. Wordy is good.

Tldr means too long, didn't read. It's good to write tldr and an overview of the bigger writing under it for people who get overwhelmed.

Some of your comments cover previously covered ground, but apart from that I like your comments and I think you're a worthwhile contributor.

Just read from the start. You also poked Roger.

Don't poke Roger.

I'm gonna try to be worthy. sometimes.   Thank you! :)
I'm not really from around these parts and figure reinventing the wheel is gonna be a hobby of mine on occasion.
I really am still new to forums.  You all were my first!  :argh!:

So TLDR is like a summary placed above the word festival for those less inclined to read the whole thing?

I did not really understand the maginiude of the consequences for poking Roger/Howl.
I consider him an important part of the learning curve here and a darwinian force for..  uh.. things and BOOM and stuff.
