Wow.  Portland burners is now NOTHING but people whoring for rides and tickets.

Yep.

And then for a week it will be DEAD SILENCE.

In other words, the perfect time to fill it with pictures from the Gathering of the Juggalos.

It's not pretending it's something it's not, it's creatively highlighting whatever will get people's foot in the door, so that they may eventually shed their former selves, and be more like you :)

Nobody needs another TGRR.  Especially not me.  Unless you cloned me, in which case I'd never leave the fucking house.  I don't WANT people to be like me, and I hope YOU DON'T, EITHER.

No.  I want people to be themselves.  On someone else's planet.

And if they can't be themselves, then Discordia will be of no use to them, and they'd FUCK IT UP FOR ME, because there'd be RULES and shit all of a sudden, and I wouldn't be able to shit in the poorbox anymore.

Exactly. It isn't about getting anyone to be more like anyone else so much as it is about getting them to realize that they don't have to be like anyone but themselves. When people ask me about Discordianism I emphasize the idea that it's largely about freedom. At least MY discordianism is.

I'd just do a Law of Fives presentations, pat them on the shoulder and walk away.

I can relate, though. I told me mum I joined this forum and it was about the hardest thing ever to tell her what it was about....... No matter what I said she kept relating it to scientology.

I guess it easy for outsiders to see this whole thing as a cult.  :roll:

We're the only cult that is too lazy to tell you what to do.  So you'll have to think for yourself.
