You mean as in going against the mainstream, who seem to be caught up in a Christian/Muslim spag-fight/hissy fit of epic proportions?

Atheism is the new emo.  It allows intelligent and well educated people living in first world countries to feel oppressed.

Srsly.

I'll be working on my essay and flirting with Lizzie, so I probably wont be in for too long.  But I'll certainly take a break some time during the night and say hi.

Of course, hierarchy may not actually mean politically totalitarian.  It may be socially the case, even where there are high levels of freedom, that social norms are far more constrictive than legal ones.

Just wanted to point that out.

I cant use Spagspeak.

However, I have commandered a private AOL chatroom which works more easily (just been testing it in IRC now).  All you need is an AIM account.

Or Kill Me / Re: mainstream rant #36: The Gen X Nuclear Option

Its a common feeling, at least among the idiots of the internet.  Many people involved the DailyKos walkout also said if Obama won they would not vote in the election for him, because of his supporters.

And naturally, the McCain supporters are loving this, and have been make subtle statements to the Clinton crowd, implying that they went through the same thing with Ron Paul, and playing it sympathetic.  Obvious ploy is obvious, but the sentiments seem to be spreading.

Icarus23 contacted you as well?

I was going to post that earlier, but got caught up.

The guy is on the inside, and I dunno how popular the site really is, but more mentions = better

Its not Trollax or Daven.  Its one of the YBC.

*Yawn*

Nothing interesting to see here.  I can't say I'm annoyed, but I am slightly disappointed a potentially interesting new user turned out to be...well, nothing more than a nusciance shit-stirrer (presumably because trolling other Discordians is SO HILARIOUS and there are no more Gray's on the internet.  Or something).

His lead will be very small, especially against Obama.  Both can fight for the independent voters, but will be offset by the Religious Right/disgruntled Hillary supporters, making it rather hard to call.

Or Kill Me / Re: The First Church of the Holy Lie
« on: April 13, 2008, 04:38:38 pm »
the problem with everybody being "honest" is that even honesty is a lie. for humans, the truth is way too easy to confuse with your opinion. when you're being "brutally honest," are you really telling an objective truth, or are you telling the truth as you see it? they're two different things. humans are naturally terrible at being objective, so of course we lie and manipulate. telling me to tell the truth all the time is telling me to put too much energy into people who aren't worth it.

Bollocks.  There is opinion, and there is truth.

Yeah, but most people cannot tell the difference between their opinions and facts.

I think we should invade Iraq: opinion.
Iraq presents no greater security threat to the USA than it did in the last decade: fact.

The problem is, people make value judgements not based on facts, but on the little voices in their heads that tell them what is right and wrong and how the world is "supposed to work".  Often this involves some sort of dubious book of Middle Eastern origin, shoddy scholarship, suck, fail and hallucinatory mushrooms.

Or we can just leave them in Apple Talk and Or Kill Me instead of making sub-forum for every single subject that could concievably ever turn up on the forums.

Cain,
doesn't want 20,000 subforums each with 10 posts in them
