Look, asshole:  Your 'incomprehensible' act, your word-salad, your pinealism...It BORES ME.  I've been incomprehensible for so long, I TEACH IT TO MBA CANDIDATES.  So if you simply MUST talk about your pineal gland or happy children dancing in the wildflowers, go talk to Roger, because he digs that kind of shit

Cheers Yatto.

Portland will be the last location at this stage.

From Portland, where do I need to go to fly to Brazil?

I'm going to PM that link to all the slackers who haven't connected up yet  :argh!:

Also I'm starting to think that there needs to be some kind of pass the parcel - Discordian pass along, something going on. Something I can bring to each person I meet with, take something and leave something, similar to the art shirt idea. Any takers?

Also I've worked out a name for this process;

PAY IT FNORD.

Portland Jr., on the left coast, has all of the PD.COM Discordians, though Portland Sr., here in Maine, does have some Discordians as well, they just don't seem to,have much of an online presence.

I'm about 40 miles out of this Portland, and there is another spag who used to be online here that is in the vicinity of Portland Sr, but I haven't spoken to him in years.

There are two Portlands.

There are about 50 Providences.

There's only one Tucson.

Awesome! That works out well.

I have four Discordians in Brisbane that I'm hoping to meet with, including Dr Jon.

I think you are looking for Portland, Oregon. You would be sorely disappointed if you ended up in Portland, Maine!  :lulz:

I was gunning for Oregon, but then I looked at a map and was like 'hey, am I actually meant to be on the OTHER SIDE OF THE THE COUNTRY?'

Eh, Portland, Maine is a good town.  Obviously it doesn't suit your specific aims, but in general, Portland, Me would be a good place to visit.  It definitely, IMO, has a unique culture.

Rev, since I'm off to NY anyway, I'm actually planning to pop into Maine. I should get some indication of how to go about things in a week or two regarding flights.

Check your distances.  One does not simple "pop into" TRONE.
