EvangeliGASM
« on: February 16, 2010, 07:31:30 pm »
So I was sitting at a bar last night with EOT and, kind of out of the blue, the image of Cram on a streetcorner earnestly handing out Discordian pamphlets popped into my head. And it was funny. I laughed.

And then I was enlightened.

So what I would like to do here is follow through with Cram's (I think it was Cram's) idea of streetcorner Discordian evangelism... put together some little pamphlets, ones that can be printed on a single sheet of paper, then cut up, folded, and stapled... and start handing them out. I'll post them on SCRIBD as I get them done. Contributions to this project, whether in the form of ideas or pamphlets, are welcome.

awesome! I haven't actually done any street corner evangelism since I lived with the OBNOXIOUS JERK CABAL. Which is about three or four years ago at this point! It was prior to me being known as Cramulus...

here's some material:

Liv and I had some buttons made with "We occur at random among your children" with the 23cent apple stamp, and "A conclusion is simply where you've stopped thinking." with the pentagon mandala, and one with a 'word cloud' from the PD. "POEE" is the largest term in the word cloud so we've memorized how to say "Para-Theo-Ana-Meta-Mystickhood of Eris Esoteric" with a straight face and have taken to handing out buttons.

Hey! Stop stealing my unannounced ideas!  :argh!:

We've got a lot of street preachers around here and some friends and I are planning on launching a counter-evangelism campaign soon. I've got a little one page tract that I could send you. Do you want me to PM it to you or would you prefer to get the word doc in an email? The other half of the plan is creating a Discordian tele-evangelist character. I borrowed a webcam from a friend and I'm gonna debut the character on youtube soon (probably on the YouGASM profile). I've already got some ideas but if anyone has any suggestions I'd like to hear 'em.
Fuck it.  I'm going to get ordained as a Catholic priest and start robbing banks and mugging people.  I mean, apparently, you can be excused any crime if you're in with the Big V.


Lets try it on an even simpler level:

1) There is a minimum energy/mass things can have, everything can be measured in a multiple of this minimum.

2) Objects at this size, or close to it, don't have an exact position or velocity, so they look like waves in most experiments.

3) If you try to measure the location, they act more like particles, just to fuck with you, but the velocity gets more uncertain, also just to fuck with you.

Conclusion: God hates physicists.

Here's this again:


Was about tp make a series of these with various spagfaces before I lost my damned mind and made a foolish asshole decision.

I thought it'd be great to have that sort of cryptic, ominous message leaving people to wonder:
"I just got...cram'd? What the hell does that mean?"

Even better if they were all business card sized, and I handed them out wearing a suit and a somber and/or professional expression.

This would make a good image to turn ASCII and randomly print on people's computers too, I don't remember the link, but I remember someone posting a link that could randomly print stuff on people's computers.
You're a special case, Babylon.  You are offensive even when you don't post.

Merely by being alive, you make everyone just a little more miserable

Should we put principiadiscordia.com on the backs of these?
