Heard in a meeting the other day:

"...applying force to the chassis and seeing if it leaks goo afterward..."

"...I don't think the other labs set fire to our devices..."

"Have we accidentally constructed a doomsday device?"

I was sat in work during a dull team meeting a whiles back, and the boss hit the part of the agenda reserved for complaints. A local had complained that the noise of our cognitively impaired dudes using the trampoline was disturbing her sleep, which she needed for her Very Important Job (tm)

MIDWAY through our boss delivering this speech, the wind picked up, and threw the fucking trampoline through a trellis, over a seven foot high wall, whereupon it landed right side up and undamaged, in her (complainant's) fucking back yard.

I can dig all of that, AI!

And no worries about the original purpose of the thread, distractions are encouraged  :fnord: :fnord:

Just to connect some dots with you...

Releasing both positive & negative self esteem reminds me of Jung's concept of enantiodromia, the idea being that psychical states call forth their opposites. A bipolar pendulum, of sorts. Neutralizing value judgements might could create some balance.

I know what you mean about euphoric & holistic love!

Interesting thing about language where it condenses a multiplicity of ideas into a single symbol, which then gets used interchangeably, with somewhat confusing results!

“Every word is a fossilized poem.”

Eros: Romantic Love
Philia: Brotherly Love
Agape: Divine/Unconditional Love

"Love, yes. Word known to all men"

"All you need is love"

"I'm lovin' it"

"Love is the law"
- Aleister Crowley

"Love is metaphysical gravity."
- Bucky Fuller

Just FYI, the website version of this is in a slightly wider format and is, I think, nicer looking  :fnord:

But also, I like having a stream of my pages listed here, and so!

Okay, I'm thoroughly caught up on it all, including the context of the decades of Russian State propaganda I was not yet aware of and certainly didn't understand in modern contexts around the Ukraine conflict. The brainrot I was spouting before, while primarily just irrelevant outside of the context of the Russian Propaganda, was highly offensive in the worst cases, and highly insensitive in the best cases, specifically when the Russian Propaganda is taken into account.

I'm sorry for being such a dumbass.

And also an asshole.

I've also been trying my best, for a couple months, to battle that same kind of brainrot wherever I see it online.
