I would be totally easy to live with.

None of you would ever get sick of me. 

Until you laced our food with ipecac to make sure we got sick :sad:

How did you know about that?   :lulz:  I haven't talked about that in years.

I've drank enough coffee today to become prophetic.

Interestingly enough, soon it will reach levels of "I've drank enough coffee today to not need ipecac."

Looks like we'll need those 5 gallon buckets of astroglide after all.

Bah, the best lube is good ol' fashioned elbow grease.

Do you know how difficult it is to milk an elbow?

Just get it drunk. It'll put out.

Too many leaders?  Consensus decision making.  Nothing gets done until everyone agrees it gets done.  That ought to keep things running smoothly.

The only thing we'll ever agree on is fapping.

And again, we return to the 5 gallon bucket of astroglide.
Be the trouble you want to see in the world.

Yeah, because NOBODY here is the kind of person who will flip the fuck out when they don't get their way. Even less when the vast majority doesn't get its way because of some jackass. Right.

I would totally spend a couple years in this place if it works btw. I don't really have practical skills, but I can maintain at least my own computer (others here are way ahead of me on networks administration) and given an Internet connection I can make money translating...

Actually, the one practical skill I could really contribute is running (chairing, moderating, Roberts' Rules style) democratic meetings, if we do those to avoid conflict. I have experience at it and I'm told I'm pretty good at it. Also other bureaucratic shit really, but I can kinda see how that kind of stuff won't really work for many of us.
Unless stated otherwise, feel free to copy or reproduce any text I post anywhere and any way you like. I will never throw a hissy-fit over it, promise.

I say we subvert an existing commune with all our wit and charm and natural abilities of persuasion, e.g. Alpha Farm looks nice, and there's a list of some more here:

It would be a lot cheaper, and it also solves the problem of too many cult-leaders, and not enough cultists.

I know you meant this humorously, but I have to strongly urge against democratic voting in the commune, except for minor disputes and petty squabbles. Allowing majority rule would turn a Discordian Autonomous Zone into a U.S. microcosm.

I am on my 4th pot of coffee, so that's enough whining from the rest of you.

I would as long as I didn't have to share a bathroom.
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".

That's good.  If you and I had to share a house, the sheer concentration of sechsay would level the neighborhood.

Plus, you'd kill my ass in less than a day.

I'd totally join.  I dunno about the dropping out of society thing, but I'm gonna have to pay rent/morgatge no matter where I go, so pitching in financially isn't that annoying.

Oh yeah, added to my skills, I used to do laundry professionally for a hotel.

I say we subvert an existing commune with all our wit and charm and natural abilities of persuasion, e.g. Alpha Farm looks nice, and there's a list of some more here:

http://nica.ic.org/iclist/

It would be a lot cheaper, and it also solves the problem of too many cult-leaders, and not enough cultists.

Fuck yeah, we could take over Zendik farm in an afternoon.
