Apple Talk / Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party

Thank You for the welcome.
CNO, Thank you for the suggestions.
I just went back to see how far I had made it, looks like I bailed just before the Turkey curse. Moving to a new desk/computer means losing all my open tabs and losing track of where I was in some readings.
But I agree, those were some of the bits that I enjoyed the most, along with the parable of the bitter tea pg. 37 (at least in the table of contents?), the little script at the bottom about hell resonates with that whole former mormon bit of me. but I also recognize the urge to take shortcuts that I'll regret later in that parable.

I'll probably mostly keep lurking, as I've been doing for the last couple months.

If you had a choice:

Would you rather be the stupidest person in a room full of smart people, often embarrassed, always afraid of making mistakes, struggling just to keep up, rarely fitting in
sometimes learning something

Or would you rather be the smartest person in a room full of stupid people, often annoyed, always contemptuous, struggling to make yourself understood, rarely able to make a connection
but still number one?

By the way, you don't get to know which kind of room you're in.
You have to guess.

I generally assume I'm in the former. I feel a pang of terror at the idea of ending up in the latter and realizing it.

Who am I?
I am an uncultured Kansas City suburbanite. Born into the Mormon faith, currently gnawing ineffectively at the walls of my "formerly Mormon" black iron prison.

How did I find myself here?
I came here by way of the podcast titled "Embrace the Void" where the host Aaron Rabinowitz had dropped several references to the principia discordia. After Aaron devoted an entire episode to the idea of discordianism and the principia discordia, I finally became intrigued enough to search for the work, which lead me to your domain. I'll admit I still have yet to finish the damn thing as I am easily distracted and decided to instead complete a first pass of "Or Kill Me", several BIP works (BIP, BIP 2013 Musings of a Faceless Man), and "The Compleat Billy Chronicles" thread, (not in that order).

Why am I bothering?
Online forums were my digital drug of choice growing up and I have a problem. Oh, and I registered in hopes of seeing the fatberg, sadly the picture is no longer there.

Mostly I make breakfast foods and deserts, though I have dabbled in yogurt culture and bread making. I'll lend my meager knowledge if asked.
