"This book is bad. You would have more fun trying to have a conversation with a bowl of corn flakes."
Does this appear in the Principia anywhere?

In my infant school people use to lean on this heater and sometimes get there arm caught behind it. Scary situation and the fire brigade normally had to be rushed to the school. It properly hasnt been fixed up to this day so it probaly still happens alot.
Also at infant school my friend use to always faint. So we would be in class and suddenly there would be a tangled body fall over the table or over someone. I never understood, as I dont think alot of people did back then what was happening, so it was normally shit scary and I would always think he had died.
And I have a memory also at infant school where I actually managed to spread a meme (well a new word) and everyone was using is. The word was 'beware', people would say 'BEWARE of Dave' 'BEWARE of me' etc  :D
And also I managed to do some what might be magick onto myself. I use to be quite good at reading out loud to the class-room and then one day I remember imagining I was a cat so therefore all the words were difficult for me to say, and I ended up not being able to read out loud for...err...about 5 years after haha.
I also managed to 'unlearn' something else back then, I got really good at whisteling and somehow totaly forgot how to do it. People use to ask me to do it and I would be like "I cant do it anymore".

Im trying to remember what else, so much happened in infant and secondary school.

Well thats a real life picture. Its what the average Berkshire crackhead looks like.
Soul-less wells for eyes. Crinkled malnutritioned skin. Thinning black brilo pad hair. Gormless cradled mouth.
Tasty stuff.

I was just thinking of memories of my school.
Some girls at my school use to say "Can I have that sweet" (that was in your mouth) and take it and eat it.

What jokes stuff happened at your schools?

      So basically, what you're doing seems good, E-Prime is always fun and I notice it gets the occasional use here when appropriate. Just keep in mind that many of us have read everything RAW, plus the PD, plus the SubG publications, plus Omar's extras... and the really lame ones (like me) have also watched his interviews that are available on YouTube ;-)

      Yea, as iv realised. I simply forgot, and was naive too, that most of you guys are probaly very widely learned. Seen as though that seems to run trend in the discordia mindset. I guess I should make small assumptions and not, and im sorry (well actually im not) if I may patronize or recycle info.

      I didnt come on here and read every post first out of acting cautious. I didnt notice the "noobs read here first" threads. I didnt stumble at the front door thinking "what if I make a fool of myself of hitting cliches" because quite simply I couldnt care either ways.

      Anyway, enough of justifying myself.

      if i'm not mistaken, this is 100% plager.

      more fiber. needs more fiber.

      plager?

      If you mean plagiarized then to my knowledge it is not.


      If you did manage to accidently duplicate the original that would prove an odd segment of reality. The typing monkey stuff.

      if treading on old ground for some.

      Well that probaly will happen. And im glad actually, since normally for me its the other way around. Nearly everyone I meet tells me the same philosophies', principles, morals and general trends and memes. So id say thats a good sign from this board that I may encounter a certain bordedom with my ideas from some people. Refreshing.

      Because of the 50-post rule, I'll put it like this:

      If you honestly think a Discordian board wouldn't know about E-Prime, you really need to lurk more.

      I guessed that as soon as I posted it. Oh well.

      And sorry, im not into all this private jokes lingo you guys have. So if im hitting cliches about being a noob then...well, what does it matter anyway?

      Iv found the technique of adopting a E-prime view very helpful. Its helpful because it allows quite a cold logic on structure in language, such as from a book. Certain verbs are discouraged and allow for a more careful thought and analysis for error in ones own language, thought and writing as well as on others.
      Thinking and jumping to conclusion gets harder and very lengthy with e-prime. Its difficult to settle on any sort of conclusion due to the neurtal adaption of multiple ideas along the way to a conclusion...I never have reached one in E prime anyway  :p

      Il just copy and paste the list from wikipedia.
      and if you want to read the whole article its here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E_Prime

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Discouraged forms

      E-Prime would prohibit the following words as forms of to be:

      be
      being
      been
      am
      is; isn't
      are; aren't
      was; wasn't
      were; weren't

      Contractions formed from a pronoun and a conjugation of to be:
      I'm
      you're; we're; they're
      he's; she's; it's
      there's; here's
      where's; how's; what's; who's
      E-Prime likewise prohibits contractions of to be found in nonstandard dialects of English, such as the following:
      ain't
      hain't (when derived from ain't rather than haven't)

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Allowed words

      E-prime does not prohibit the following words, because they do not derive from forms of to be. Some of these serve similar grammatical functions (see auxiliary verbs).

      become
      has; have; had
      I've; you've
      do; does; doing; did
      can; could
      will; would
      shall; should
      ought
      may; might; must

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Allowed words with prohibited homophones or homographs

      The following words may either look (homograph) or sound (homophone) like a form of the word to be, but they do not have the same meaning.

      its, the possessive case of the singular gender-neutral pronoun
      Contractions of the form ís, derived from 'has'
      hain't (in nonstandard dialects when derived from haven't rather than ain't)
      Nouns that sound like forms of the verb to be:
      bee, meaning an insect or a contest
      being when used as a noun, as in Virginia Woolf's statement, "The artist after all is a solitary being"
      B, M, and R, names of the letters (although M is pronounced distinctly from am in many dialects)

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Iv tried telling other people about this who have just started to 'think' but err they seem overwhelmed.

      One of my friends showed me the rape scene from that film. We also recorded the sound, slowed it down and made it sound like ogre screams.
