This is a lot of new blood. Looks like my riffraff conjuration spell worked.
                                                         
Listen carefully. I don't have much time, and I only have 462 characters left. I'm a scientist from Area 52 (Area 51 was used to draw attention from Area 52, where the aliens were ACTUALLY stored) who was working on neural interfacing with networked devices. In an experiment gone wrong, I accidentally uploaded my mind to the internet. In the 2 seconds I had before my mind scrambled itself with the world's network traffic, I was able to store this snippet in this random internet signature. If you're reading this, let the world know tha

Reminder that you probably shouldn't be keen to take the credit unless you're also willing to take the blame.

Nothing personal, you know the rules and the punishments. We're also out of rusty barbed wire so you'll have to supply your own when the time comes. Usual dress code will still apply, naturally.

Not half as bad as something I just thought up for the bastard.

Gladly it was a digital manifestation and not a physical manifestation. Sure, I can see all your porn history (which hurts my eyes) but a cyber deity like me also gets to to hang out at a place like this, which relieves the trauma  :lulz:

Hi, new person!

Hi other person that appears to have been here longer than I have, or may or may not depending on the technicalities that are of a nature more infinite than myself, fuck!  :eek:

Registered today. I come out of Zen, the lineage of Suzuki Roshi. Lived in a zen school for a bunch of years, 40 years ago.  Ancestors on my dad's side got off the boat in New Orleans in 1821,  the males were Masons, living in the time of the 2 Marie Laveaus.  Been lucid-dreaming since I was 5 years old. Worked with different magicians & Vodou folk over the years. Perform old blues and other noise. Sometimes perform as a magician & theatrical mind-reader.

>>1.  Who the hell are you, and how did you find this place? 
Reverend Jesus "H" Christ. One or two of you might remember me (as 'Kiltedfox' or 'Reverend Smeg the Kilted') from POEE.co.uk, back in the days when Syn was still putting together his hardback PD. I certainly remember a handful of you (hi, asshats!!) After a very long hiatus, here I am again.
I'm a geek, a grease monkey, and a veteran, generally in that order.

>>You're a cop, right? 
Nope. I'll go to a foreign country and shoot the fuckers I'm told to, but I've got too much personal integrity to be a cop.

>>Yeah you are.  Or you're wearing a wire.  I can smell that shit, and you are most definitely some kind of spy for government agencies
That's the ex-military you smell -- I'll probably always carry myself like that, no matter how much weed I smoke.

>>...that never heard of us and wouldn't care if they did.  Fess up.
Who will help the Widow's Son?

>>2.  Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker? 
I figure they're all bullshit, and I'mma go with the one that looks like the most fun. Plus you dicks don't make promises, so I can't be disappointed.

>>You're just asking for it, you know.
Story of my life -- I joined the army in 2002. We invaded Iraq in 2003.

>>3.  Do you know any good recipes?  Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.
You're dead, TGGR, you can't fucking cook anymore.

Are you the Jesus I prophesied?

Also, if you want order, then you've come to the wrong place

1) Last fall when looking for post-modern and post-humanist books to read I found PD, the book, on a Wikipedia page for parody/post-modern religions. I started reading it, thought it was funny, but then stopped and moved on to a different pdf. Later I audiobook'd the Illuminatus! Trilogy and was provoked by the logogram/biogram theory of action. After finishing the trilogy, I looked for further reading on the subject finding only one journal article titled 'Dissipating the Logogram'. It was a good read, but I wasn't satisfied with his resolution... ended up on PD, the forum, several times in my search. Too many times and I am here.

2) From what I've read, the other Greek Gods weren't the best judges of character. But yeah, I'm askin' for it.

3) I cook practically, might add some recipes there but they aren't fancy. Here's an easy one for now.

0. If this is your first time working with pasta and you need extra luck, try throwing a pinch of salt over your shoulder into the pot. If not, skip this step.

1. Make spaghetti. From scratch is cheaper but box works just as well. The key to knowing when the spaghetti is ready is a sudden change in the smell of the room. After the smell changes, let it cook a bit longer. If you can't smell the difference yet, do a flexibility test of the pasta and try it every now and then. It is essential the spaghetti gets a lot of water in it for this recipe. Also, I don't think it is important to boil the water before putting the spaghetti in as long as it is kinda hot.

2. Drain the spaghetti. While draining it is easy, if you mess up you can end up with sink-spaghetti a different, less desirable recipe. Also, it is important to pour it out of the pot when you drain it, so it gets airtime.

3. Here is the twist. Then freeze the amount of spaghetti you will eat. The goal is not to freeze it thoroughly, but to get a soft-freeze. Frozen spaghetti, as long as it is malleable, is very refreshing and enables many more pairings rather than just tomatoes and cheese. I recommend pickles in my frozen spaghetti, but I wouldn't eat pickles in hot spaghetti. Alternatively, frozen spaghetti can be a straight dessert as an ice cream substitute if paired with something sweet. Lastly, semi-frozen spaghetti is not as messy. Because it does not slip around and can be bitten into rather than slurped, frozen spaghetti is a better option for fancier meals, I'd imagine. I freeze spaghetti practically, not fancily, so I wouldn't know on that last pro.
Natural law demands spaghetti to be eaten raw.

Not that I believe it's actually you, of course.  You're probably just a whole bunch of tiny Russian bots running the account from a basement in St. Petersburg.  Like 90% of the internet nowadays.
