    PD.com forums: a disorganized echo-chamber full of concordian, Greyfaced radical left-wing nutjobs who honestly believe they can take down imaginary Nazis by distributing flyers. They are highly-suspicious of all newcomers and hostile to almost everyone, including themselves. The only thing they don't take seriously is Discordianism.

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.

I can understand why some people get burnt out on the truth and want to spend some time cooling their head by sticking it in the clouds for a little while. Not everyone's got the guts to roll around in the muck all the time.

But when people insist that "that shit is too serious for Discordianism," I wanna slap them in the Stupid. Discordians are part of a very small number of people that have a slightly better-than-average chance to see things without blinders, and you're going to squander that chance on fucking fnords and hot dogs?!

HAIL YEAH.

AND FURTHERMORE

Harriet Tubman did it
with little more than
the love of God,
a pistol,
a plan,
and

the help of those others
risking their

necks
to do it with her.

The trip was one-way
AND GOD HELP YOU

if cold feet
or an
empty belly

set you to griping about it
or thinking you could backtrack
on it.

GOD HELP YOU!!

Sometimes love has to be harder,
and colder,
than the steel barrel
suddenly under your chin,
the steady eyes,
the ivory GRIN
that implies
that you're going to be doing it
all the way to the end.



That end could have been then and there,
but not one
ever
tested
her.


In that moment doing it meant staying alive.

AND THAT MEANT

It was time
to sit still and

KYFMS!!!

PREACH IT, BROTHER!

It hit me while trying to go to sleep in my comfy little box-apartment. I practically heard the hammer cock and realized that NOT getting out of bed and burning an extra hour or so to see what was behind the impulse would have been weak as fuck. It would surely be much less rewarding to stay comfy and get an extra hour of sleep in the end. Also possible ghost bullets.

I don't really care if spiritual things are real or not. I'm happy to have been motivated by the ridiculous idea that HARRIET TUBMAN hijacked some of my neurons and seemingly said, "Get your tired ass up and write a few things down white boy."

This is the kind of thing you invite into your world when you PD before bed.
