BE WARNED, READER
Even SEEING THIS POST MEANS WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN QUANTUMLY ENTANGLED

Using the word "quantum" when one isn't actually talking about particle physics raises a warning flag.  It usually signifies quackery or pinealism.

Starting one's forum career by a double-posting a link to a russian-language page, when the russians are currently international pariahs, is another problem.  It seems one can't turn a rock over these days without a pro-Putin fascist scurrying out.

Especially odd, is posting such a link when russian is very obviously not a language in usage here.  What are you hoping to attain?

My book is very quack-like.
To answer about attainment, I thought that Principia Discordia encouraged "translations" (but I cannot find where it says that).
Double posting didn't mean to look spammy - I posted in the wrong subforum at first.
To answer about russian language - it's one of the languages I speak and... do I really need to "defend" myself by saying I'm Ukrainian?
In any case. I wrote a book that I felt was discordian-like. That's it.

For what it's worth, CNO, I think the talk about the political optics of the language is unnecessary. You make two good points here, but Russian is spoken by so many people that it's no more politically relevant than speaking Spanish or English. There ARE languages that are political statements, but Russian just isn't one of them. Hell, Russia as a nation is so large that being From Russia doesn't even mean anything politically.

That whole second point was oafish.
"I am that worst of all type of criminal...I cannot bring myself to do what you tell me, because you told me."

There's over 100 of us in this meat-suit. You'd think it runs like a ship, but it's more like a hundred and ten angry ghosts having an old-school QuakeWorld tournament, three people desperately trying to make sure the gamers don't go hungry or soil themselves, and the Facilities manager weeping in the corner as the garbage piles high.

We don't take the book very seriously around here.  I mean, it also encourages people to eat their own noses.

But russian isn't spoken here.  You are apparently quite fluent in English.  You would get a larger audience if you posted something in that--although regrettably, you would probably still not break single-digits.  There aren't many of us left.

Not particularly, it's enough to be a human being.

That, at least, makes sense.

Yeah, it kinda was.  Bordering on racist, even.  Truth is, I have russian ancestry, and a russian last name, and I have this lurking paranoia that someone's going to take me to task over the war because of it.

Doubting everything russian, as irrational as it is, seems to be one way I'm trying to distance myself, to prove to myself that I'm not like them.

A therapist would probably have a lot of fun with the above.

I get you. I'm at least theoretically Jewish, and with the events right now in Israel...

Yeah, I get you.
