That ad was funny you terrible bore.

He authentically doesn't get the humor, which is fine. He lacks the cognitive basis for understanding what makes it funny. Where it stops being fine and becomes insufferable is his insistence that because he doesn't find something funny, it is objectively not funny to anyone.

It's always good to be told when I've misinterpreted my own opinion.

Sustainable LARPing?  Sounds interesting, but how do you keep the larpers in the ground once you plant them there?

It's complicated, but essentially you build a feedback system that redirects the energy of their whining into forcing them deeper into the earth.

Fun little read about (I guess) the difference between the mind and the body and how that divide relates to those trying to find 'enlightenment' and the difficulties of quantifying such things.

It was entertaining, but ultimately I felt it was pointless.

There is no mind/body divide, the idea that there is is merely an artifact of consciousness, which is an emergent property driven by the complex interactions of our nervous system.

:awesome:

PeeDee, I bring you greetings from the land of Jobs That Aren't Imploding In A Cataclysmic Orgy of Incompetence.

Things are fine, mostly.

Fuckery in my life has been largely relegated to a new LARP venture that I have been (barely) helping Cram get off the ground. Basically some spag with almost no experience in running these kinds of events and a handful of cash got a whole bunch of us whipped up into a frenzy of excitement over this New Thing he was gonna run.

Predictably, the only thing keeping it from totally imploding has been the efforts of experienced people fixing everything. Now it looks like we might actually be on track to running something sustainable.

As much as there are some really frustrating things going on with my job at the moment, there are some benefits too.

Like working from home and being able to go 'fuck it, you've pissed me off, I'mma take a walk through my lovely village whilst the day is still sunny and bright.'

I feel so much better for that. 'Go the fuck outside' definitely ranks up there for advice I've taken from people here over the years.  :)

That is the best!

I am still all kinds of fucked up from the antimalarials.

Only five more days. And then I will be susceptible to colonization by every goddamn microbe in the vicinity.

Sarah Palin's pretty Discordian.  So's Nigel Farage.  Doesn't mean I'd vote for either of them.

Holy shit, Sarah Palin.  :horrormirth: Yes. She's Discordian as fuck.

I find a lot of Discordians... well, pretty much everywhere. There's two in my cognitive neuroscience class. The Cacophony Society or other places eccentrics and pranksters congregate is a good place to look. I also am part of a feminist drinking club that has a lot of Disco-minded people.

Poke around in the fringes of society, including the arts and sciences. In fact, I have to say that the sciences seem to be kind of Disco-heavy.
