Apple Talk / IQ score!
« on: September 16, 2011, 10:30:15 pm »
Do you think that iq scores could be artificially inflated (or deflated) so as to influence the population?

Cuz either I'm a dummy or everyone else is.

GASM Command / SNTA GASM
« on: September 03, 2010, 09:48:06 am »
Hey PD,

a while back, i got drunk and thought i'd see what it was like hanging out here whilst drunk.  i didn't have very much fun and decided i wasn't coming back here anymore. 

but the crushing boredom of nightshift kept bringing me back.  so i resigned myself to be a lurker.

however, it seems the forum is in a high state of creativity right now (i think it has something to do with the approaching winter, but that's another discussion)

anyhow, i've been feeling pretty creatively inspired by a lot of the threads going on around here lately. while i was reading the CD GASM* thread, i had an idea to do something similar.

i realized that i keep coming back here because you guys talk about the stuff that nobody talks about, so i present:

SNTA GASM

how it works:

if you want to play: record a spoken audio clip where you talk about something (or things) that nobody talks about.  the "nobody" here is people outside the forum, of course.  so, you know - things that aren't sports, the weather, politics, etc.  i'm sure there's something bouncing around in your head that you think is pretty amazing or awesome, but nobody talks about it.  or, if that doesn't work, you could talk about why nobody talks about those things.  spice it up with a little background music if you like, but try to keep the focus on the narrator.  also, i think it would be appropriate to record as though the listener has never heard of discordianism and isn't familiar with the lexicon.

once you have something recorded, shoot me a PM and I will provide you an email address where you can send the audio file.  (.mp3 or .wav)

when i have either a)received enough submissions to fill a CD or b)the deadline of 10/31/10 has been reached, i will post here that i'm no longer accepting submissions (unless i get such an abundance of submissions to warrant multiple CDs, but lets worry about that later)

it is assumed that all submissions are copyleft and intended to be duplicated and distributed.

after i have compiled all the submissions into a CD, i will post in this thread that the CD is ready for distribution.  Anyone interested in a copy can then send me a PM and I will provide an address to which they can send a blank audio CD inside a self addressed stamped envelope and I will copy the files onto the CD and send it back to you to listen to, enjoy, copy and distribute.

*i liked the CD GASM idea very much, it was the "what if people are afraid of viruses?" thought that got me thinking audio - i don't think you can give a CD player a virus. . .

Apple Talk / how many 5th graders could you take in a fight?
« on: January 10, 2010, 08:39:09 pm »
i was reminded by the "largest animal/bare hands" thread.  this was a subject that came up often, back in the day. 

bear in mind that the average 5th grader is 4' 4" tall and 74 lbs.

Apple Talk / metric question for eurospags
« on: January 06, 2010, 10:50:20 am »
here in america freedomland, the "standard" piece of lumber is the 2x4.  (which is 1 1/2" by 3 1/2" - don't ask).  the "standard" sheet of anything is 4' x 8'

i'm just curious what the "standard" dimensions of building materials are over there where you guys live.  are they still in feet and inches?  if they are metric, are they the metric equivalent of what  the SI dimensions are, or are they different sizes altogether?

Apple Talk / the anti-dentite fread
« on: December 19, 2009, 09:55:23 am »
i'm not really anti-dentite, but i've been watching a lot of seinfeld lately. . .

anyhow - from age 18 to age 30, i didn't go to the dentist.  for the first few years it was cuz i didn't have insurance and was poor.  then, when i had coverage, i didn't go because i hadn't been for so long that i was too ashamed, etc, and i knew it would suck, blah blah - fast forward to age 30: a piece of one of my teeth broke off, so i figured i'd better get my ass in to see the dentist.  ended up getting 4 wisdom teeth pulled plus the tooth that a piece broke off of.  also ended up getting a bunch of fillings. 

now i go regularly and it isn't all that bad.

here's my problem:  my dentist says i need to get a bridge to replace the extra tooth they pulled.  it's gonna cost me $1700.  he says that if i leave that gap in there my teeth will all shift and cause me horrible problems later on.

being that i'm the paranoid type, it does occur to me that a dental practice probably makes gobs more money off of bridges, false teeth, implants, etc. than they do off of cleanings.  so, wouldn't it really be in their best interest to keep telling me i need a bridge, even if i don't really need one?  wouldn't it be more lucrative to keep telling me that my (remaining) teeth look great until they rot out of my head so they can sell me false teeth?

it's been 2 years with the missing tooth and i haven't had any problems yet - it's kind of a nice place to store a peanut for later.  i'm wondering how much i really need that bridge, so i'm curious as to what other people think about it.

GASM Command / Black Friday GASM
« on: November 23, 2009, 07:20:26 pm »
hey - so it just occurred to me that this friday is Black Friday (see Black Friday wiki page if you a) don't know what black friday is and b) aren't quite curious enough to google it yourself, but are curious enough to click on a link).

that means there will certainly be captive "audiences" all around the country that fit a very specialized demographic.

that also means many retail outlets will be wayyyy to overwhelmed to notice people putting stickers in places they don't belong, putting false coupons next to expensive retail items, etc etc - you know, that sort of malarchy.

so, ideally, now some brainstorming happens - even though what will most likely happen is that someone will point out this sort of shit has been going on for quite a few years and what i thought was an original idea wasn't.  but hey - who's ambitious enough to google their ideas to see if they're original?

Apple Talk / rong's motorcycle geek out thread
« on: November 16, 2009, 02:17:00 am »
this is the thread where i talk about motorcycles, my motorcycle and motorcycling experiences.

today i needed to run to the hardware store to get some shit.  it's normally a 20 minute drive - but today i took the scenic route and turned it into a 3 hour motorcycle adventure.  it was 43 degrees out, so carhart bibs were in order.  all in all i stayed pretty warm - feet got a little cold, but that's on account of having poorly (i.e. not) insulated riding boots. 

i saw a nice chunk of state forest that had been clear cut, so now i know where i can go get some firewood:


i also rode by the abandoned groveland mine:
 

there's really good fishing in the mine ponds here cuz the DNR uses them to farm fish to stock many lakes around the upper peninsula.

i think this winter i will try to ride at least once in every month - just to say i did it.

Apple Talk / hey roger

A few days ago, after finishing yet another dreary midnight shift, I lay in bed raking the leaves of the evening into the further corners of my brain.  Rearranging the furniture.  Getting comfortable, so to speak.  I stumbled across a thought.  I got close to thinking it, but I was afraid.  This thought was covered in a thick black blanket of, well, blackness.  I poked at it a bit and noted itís location for further consideration.  But I just couldnít bring myself to think that thought.  I knew it was a horrible thought.  The most horrible thought I could ever possibly think.  I started to poke at it a little more, but recoiled in terror.  What if I accidentally thought the thought?  Would I DIE?  Does my brain know how to die?  Maybe it was a memory.  I didnít want to find out.  But now . . . I know itís there.  I hope it doesnít lurk around.  What if itís eating my other thoughts?  Getting stronger.

Have you ever found a thought like that?  Did you go ahead and think it?
