My new thing with PD "trolls" is to just change the topic of conversation to something which actually interests me.

Turtle soup is ok, if you're into that sort of thing. Eat too much of it though and you'll end up like all the rest of the uneducated Southern Folk.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: Discordia without Discordians
« Last post by GlompChomp on Today at 11:06:05 pm »
As has been amply demonstrated over the last decade or so, most "discordians" are assholes.  They don't get it.  They miss the point.  From the long-lost days of the Myspace Discordians, to the cheerfully sociopathic arse biscuits on Facebook, Discordianism is basically the last excuse for assholes.  What's more, they feel that they must band together under the fart blanket, to see who can be the worst example of a human being.  If you try to reason with them, then you're doing it wrong, and they will attempt to doorstep you, or make you think they will.

This sort of thing is why "discordian" is a label I no longer apply to myself.  I don't need the label...I am what I am.  If much of what I am fits our definition of discordianism, okay...But I am more than that.  Some of what I am fits the definition of a subgenius.  But I am more than that, as well.  So I no longer identify as either.

A few weeks ago, I got mad because I caught a ration of shit after blocking a racist.  I undid the block.  Other shit happened, and the racist was gone anyway, but I was furious because PD wasn't being MY discordia.  I also spent more than a decade writing here, and often got pissed when something I had enjoyed writing sank off the page like Brittany Spears' career.  Again, I was mad because it wasn't MY discordia, and it didn't bring me the validation I craved.

Then it was pointed out to me that a lot of this was in fact based on said validation, even to the point of doing things for people that hate me.  So much for being a biped, right?  Well, nobody is expected to start out knowing everything, and even an old dog can learn new tricks.

So I do my discordia on my own, these days.  I've dropped out of the local cabals, and have in fact found that I can have a lot more fun on my own, when it comes to shoveling sand into the gearbox.  Or fixing the gearbox.  Whichever strikes my fancy on any given day.  Hell, 10 years ago I said that if you were doing it for the admiration of your peers, you were doing it wrong, and then it turns out I was doing that very thing all along.

What I need to do is get back to basics.  I don't see the need to start a multi-generational war over a snub, because that's Eris's thing, not mine.  I don't, however, see the need to perform like a circus monkey for people who hate me.  In fact, my subgenius side tells me to ramp it up and hate those people more.  Maybe I will, I don't know.  But I'm certainly not sticking my neck out for them, or writing for them ("I don't like you, but I like your writing.  Sometimes."), or associating with them, simply because life is too short. I could get hit by a bus tomorrow, and I'd hate to think I would go to my maker having not hated the people who hated on me.

Discordians tend to be the most interesting people I know.  This is not to be confused with the healthiest people I know.  I love reading Hunter S Thompson, for example, but I doubt I'd have enjoyed spending 6 months with him.

So I'm flying solo, these days.  It's not for everyone, but it DOES have the added advantage of not getting poop all over your shoes when a "discordian" starts jabbering racist nonsense or starts making threats because you're doing it wrong.  I would say "you don't have to hang out with sociopaths", but the fact is that most of the people involved in all of these things DO believe people are real.  They just don't believe YOU are real.  And because of that, you have to treat them as sociopaths even though they aren't with respect to the rest of the world.

The days of the Cabal are over, I think.  Well, at least they are for me.

tl;dr, my special, unique and perfect brand of Discordianism so abstracted it is basically narcissistic solipsism with whismy, which I have understood to be the best and most pure distillation of Discordian wisdom, is being usurped by people who actually enjoyed reading RAW's works therefore Discordianism is dead.

Hint for you, the reason people use the memes is because they get it too and want you to get what they're getting without having to be a sodden pedant.

Basically your mind isn't expanded enough as you think it is, which is kind of a Cardinal Sin of the religion isn't it.

Yeah.

Yeah it is.

You devil.

I'm getting ready to watch Gotham.

Preparing for shitty, hoping for passable.

I'm watching my black neighbor beat his wife unconscious for the 4th time this week. Do you think I should call the police or would that lead to another Ferguson situation?


I'm just kidding I live in the woods. My neighbors are trees.

I'm so lonely.

On the plus side, GlompChomp is inspiring me to finish The Pit, the story about how horrible archaic shit keeps trying to leak out of 20C into 21C.

Even the shittiest of situations can have a bright side.

Yeah, well, there's two bright sides to this.

What I just mentioned, and also I'm over being bitter about what happened a couple of months back.  Vindication will do that for you.

Especially since, IMO, most of the people who objected did so because it was me that banned PL, not that PL was banned.  So to SHOW ME A THING OR TWO, they jumped in bed with this guy.

Isn't that the funniest thing you ever heard?   :lulz:
