His name even fits the rule of "wolf(e) something or something wolf(e)"

I guess we toss him into the "irredeemable shitneck" bin?
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.

I too just found out. So is he married to the Food Babe? He should be.

He has killed far more people than the Food Babe.

I believe that a cat's penis has incredible magical powers and that, like the holy grail, is a divine channel between heaven and earth that has been presented throughout the history of the arts and sciences as an object of transcendent value which we should only dismiss at our own mortal peril.

I can't shake the simulation hypothesis. I don't believe it, on account of I'm physically incapable of believing anything
I don't believe it either. I can't shake the fact that it kind of looks a lot like the same tired old mysticism trotted out and dressed in scientific looking wrappings, just like intelligent design is actually creationism and singularitarianism is the same tired old messianic/apocalyptic prophecy we've heard again and again.

Anyway, as for my own woo, I have on at least one occasion prayed to the Atomic Bomb like in Beneath the Planet of the Apes and Fallout 3 (only I didn't have one right there so I prostrated myself facing Los Alamos). I also spend a good deal of time in contemplation of the teachings of various misanthropic fictional pantheons including the Great Old Ones, the Ruinous Powers, and to a lesser extent the House of Troubles

My main religious (that's probably not precisely the right word) influences are SubGenius, Discordianism, Taoism, Buddhism, the aforementioned fictional pantheons, the Book of Ecclesiastes and the Epistle of St.James

I'm technically agnostic, even though I'm confident that every specific deity, as described by their relevant faith's dogma, does not exist. This leaves a small window of non-discounted possibilities though, due to three considerations. In ascending order of importance: 1.) Some deities could be stripped of their aspects that contradict each other and observed reality and still remain recognizable as that deity. Still very highly unlikely that any of them existed in any sense other than the way that, for example, John Frum was likely based on a real person 2.) the supreme beings of Jainism (although not the rest of the faith) really do have non-overlapping magesteria with science, this is because being as they are free of all passions desires and attachments they don't get up off of their all-powerful asses for anything ever. and 3.) Most importantly once you realize that many ancient deities relied on tools for their most iconic abilities it brings many of them down from the realm of the fantastical into the realm of "fuck, I could do that". Tesla coils anybody? The specific characters probably still aren;t real but their power level drops into the realm of plausibility

EDIT:
Also, even though I know this can't be what's happening, sometimes it feels like NHGH is answering my prayers; A lot of public figures that I don't like have gotten pancreatic cancer.

EDIT:
I believe that a cat's penis has incredible magical powers and that, like the holy grail, is a divine channel between heaven and earth that has been presented throughout the history of the arts and sciences as an object of transcendent value which we should only dismiss at our own mortal peril.
Seconded, provided that much of it is taken as metaphor

EDIT:
Going back to my brief mention of Taoism and Buddhism, the ideas of wu wei and of freeing oneself from passions and attachment really speak to me because I believe that many or even even most of society's ills derive from people overreacting to things; the societal equivalent of an anaphylactic response or cytokine storm. People need to learn to stop doing shit or giving a fuck except when it really really matters. Race is completely void of meaning, creed is completely void of meaning, ethnicity is completely void of meaning, culture is completely void of meaning, manhood is completely void of meaning, womanhood is completely void of meaning, order to no clear end is completely void of meaning, romance is completely void of meaning, sex is completely void of meaning, the sun the moon and the stars are completely void of meaning, thrice accursed Jerusalem is completely void of meaning, dreams are completely void of meaning, all things are devoid of inherent value (especially gold), tradition is completely void of substance, the beliefs of ancient cultures are completely void of substance, and most things in the news will not effect us in any way except through the exaggerated actions of others

I believe that evolution saw to it that the chemicals in our head bounced around in certain patterns (amongst all of the other patterns) to occupy us in the questioning and exploration of our existence.  Why?  Because we live to be 80, 90, 100 fucking years old.  That's a lot of fucking time to fill.  Well, that is, those of us with enough sustenance and such to have the luxury of questioning it all.  And I think that's evolution's trick to keep us privileged folk busy so we don't straight out kill everyone and steal their sandboxes. 

I mean, really, either religious-type stuff is real or it isn't.  If it is, well we're all screwed, if it isn't, there is still a reason for why we believe in magical space ghosts.  It's either science or science fiction.  Cosmos or Flash Gordon. 

And the reality is, Cosmos makes more sense, but who the fuck doesn't want to be Flash every once in awhile?

No other explanation makes sense.  How many times do you have to "test" known technology?

Not woo in the sense that I'm not sure I totally believe this, but I was thinking about how trump has basically bankrupted the Secret Service and it made me think (as I now often have to, these days) about Transmetropolitan. specifically the part where Spider Jerusalem is able to corner "The Beast" in the bathroom because he also bankrupted his Secret Service. At the time, I thought this was wildly unrealistic, because what president would be dumb enough to skimp on his own personal protection, especially when he's so hated? (Hold for laughs)But then, that got me thinking, if Trump is The Beast, and in Transmetropolitan, The Beast is replaced by the Smiler, then who the fuck is the Smiler, IRL? Then my friend piped in, "Well, Mike Pence smiles a lot", and my heart sank......
