(Sorry Cram & Rat' but the LARP makes me --> :x)


It's all good. If I was concerned with what The Other thought of my hobbies, I certainly wouldn't count myself amongst Discordians. I can see why some people think LARP sucks, or that I suck for doing it. All I can say to that is  :boring:. This is the Strange Times, and everybody is unspeakably weird. No shame there. One might just as validly critique people who post on forums all day, or own guns, or follow women's basketball or whatever.

Pissing all over someone else for doing something you don't personally approve of is MORE pointless than how pointless you think what they're doing is! So is taking offense to someone doing so.

In the end, I go to LARPs because I like to get outdoors, hang out with my oddball friends, and engage in team-oriented physical activity. I like challenges, competition, and the feeling of being a part of an ongoing story. I like the escapism of putting your life on hold while you get away for a weekend. I like that LARPing is relatively cheap, rewards creativity, and networks you with some very strange and interesting people.

I don't expect that it's for everybody. But that's cool, nothing is for everybody.

You just made Roger cry.

It's agony, man.  Agony.

It's surprising how many of them involve shit, though.

Well, steam is known for it's anti-authoritarian stance.

But Steam on the other hand IS the fucking Man.

I don't get it.  :|
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".

By the way, I read like half of the other steampunk thread and was sad at having missed so many of Tigger's alts.   :sad:
