Discordian Recipes / Hearty breakfast
« on: October 01, 2014, 09:24:27 am »
Dice one unit of onion, one of pumpkin and one of parsnips into half-inch cubes. Fry those in goose fat (or fat of your choice) on medium heat. In between frequent stirs, chop lots of garlic, some ginger and half a unit of salty smoked ham. When the onions begin to brown, stick all of those in and stir it up. After a little bit more frying, apply curcuma (it's good for ya!) and toss in some brown rice. For extra protein, stick a couplefew eggs on top, then eat. Sometimes I also put chopped chillies or Thai 7-spice seasoning on it. And yummy.

Apple Talk / Holist crap

does this mean evo psych can suck my strap on now?

Evolutionary psychology is an interesting budding field of investigation that is closely related to medical anthropology. However, it is, as an infant science, highly speculative and subject to loosely formed standards of rigor, as well as widely, WIDELY misunderstood/misappropriated/misrepresented by popular media.

Those two sentences. The very soul of pith, I say.

Apple Talk / How to Beat Procrastination
« on: January 05, 2014, 10:03:39 am »
Part 1, Part 2

They are quite long, but interesting. As a person with a procrastination (acrasia, as discussed in philosophy) problem, I think that these articles are great as far as they go, that the author seems to have invented something quite close to Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and NLP, and that there's important ground he leaves untouched. I'd be very interested to hear other people's opinion about this. I will be on my best behaviour, I promise. Yes, I lied. I thought I could stay away, but I couldn't. I apologize.

Apple Talk / Simple relationship test
« on: December 26, 2013, 06:23:55 pm »
After a major screeching-match, what does "let's make up" mean in your relationship?

A) Let's forget the whole thing quickly, let's make like it never happened, let's turn a new leaf, well, let's turn several new leaves actually... cuz we lurvz each otherz, really, don't we now?

B) Let's try to figure out what the fuck happened there, exactly why and how we ended up cursing each other's mothers. Let's see if we can spend quite a long time to work out a story we can both agree on that explains why that doesn't threaten our relationship: it is okay to make 1stupid mistakes, etc...

----------------------

A): Headed for disaster.

B): There's hope for you yet.

Must have been an unsettling experience, even for a psychopath. :)

Lucky for him he had already stopped being an all-out genetic determinist when this happened.

Why Love Matters, indeed!

You'll burn it down anyway.

Apple Talk / Split from LMNO's music thread.
« on: November 20, 2013, 03:01:13 pm »
1980: Joni Mitchell, Shadows and Light. Pastorius, Metheny, Michael Brecker... I still know that double album practically by heart.
1981: It is indeed very hard to beat My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, but Joe Jackson's Jumping Jive was released that year. Classic.
1982: The Simon and Garfunkel Central Park Concert. Stevie Gadd on drums, Anthony Jackson on bass. There was an incident on stage that didn't make it onto the album, though it is in the film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhBvh1cwA0w

The other day, I was wondering whether fetuses cry, and whether they vomit. I asked google and it turns out they do cry, this has been ascertained by 3d scanning, but the vomiting thing was more difficult, and then I stumbled into this:

This guy is just amazingly bizarre. And it seems pretty plain to me that he is wrong. But he could be onto something.

Apple Talk / Mommy Shaming

you are conflating Freedom with Wisdom. Children are generally Free as a default state.

Funny you say that, I was tempted to say you were conflating freedom with heroism/naivety. :)

In my pretty extensive experience of children (who are, indeed, paragons of freedom until the age of about 3-4), I found that while they are hard little bastards who stick up for themselves like there's no tomorrow, they know full well when to shut up and put up. And are largely not suicidal.

Your experiences have been wildly different from mine.

In what way?

The shutting up and not suicidal.

wow, but what age?

Apple Talk / 'Butthurt' and being offended
« on: November 03, 2013, 01:18:32 pm »
'Butthurt' is kind of a central concept to PD, isn't it? So what I'd like to know is:

Is there a difference? If yes, what is it?
