I spouted it.
Nigel corrected it.
Cain expanded it.
V3X riffed on it.
LMNO did something kinky to it.
ECH laughed at it.
P3ntagram wiped with it.
Permagos questioned it.
Garbo annotated it.
Stella ran off with it.

And THAT, my slack-jawed monkey-fuckers, is how things get DONE around here.

"Billy, when I say that ethics is our number one priority and safety is also our number one priority, you should take that to mean exactly what I said. Also quality. That's our number one priority as well. Don't look at me that way, you're in the corporate world now and this is how it works."

And

FURTHERMORE

There is a natural order to most things; if you step about 12" to the left, you can usually get a bowling ball to go down the middle line and thereby resist its more natural attraction to the gutter and your foot.  Stubbornly standing in the middle of the lane will greatly diminish your chances of success, unless you throw overhand.  Then you will probably break to the left and regain a bit of advantage in your aim until they eject you for being insane.

Slack™ is the shining path of least resistance.  NOT, however, "No Resistance".  THAT path is actually the couch and Fox News.

It does happen, and the reason we STUDY IT is because it's not normal. It's horrifying and repugnant and we want to figure out why it happens, so we can PREVENT IT. And, all this research shows that just one person can change a whole crowd's behavior; a single person can break conformity and put a stop to compliance in a bad situation.

Had that happen on jury duty once.  It was this horrible battery case, where this ape looking dude stood accused of beating his GF and her 3 year old boy.  I bumped up into the short list, and the prosecutor asks if anyone has a problem with the fact that he's only going to use one witness.

Everyone just sits there.  I raise my hand.  He askes what the problem is, and I respond that yes, if that's all he's got, I have a problem.  Then 4 more people all raise their hands and agree.

I was, of course, thrown off the jury with one of the prosecutor's 2 freebees.



QuoteAnd there is a LOT of money and a LOT of power put into trying to make sure we don't do that. And, there is a pretty good body of research that indicates that the more "individualistic" we are as a society, the more we conform, and fear dissent.

And that's why I'm a discordian.  And that's why I get so manic when I see people thinking "Discordian" means "tell the same tired-ass jokes and hot dog bullshit so that everyone will know you're in on the joke and one of them".  TOTALLY FUCKING THE DOG THERE, JUNIOR.

FUCKING A, SO MUCH THIS.

Well, SOMEONE got poo all over it.
