Title: Sermon # Whatever: I fucking hate you. Die.
Post by: The Good Reverend Roger on July 23, 2012, 08:00:19 pm
Thing about Discordianism…It’s not supposed to be a read-only device.  Unlike other religions, it requires that YOU mouth off even more than the preacher man does.  It is not television.  It is not radio.  It is not a book.  It is not a “feed bag for the mind”. IT IS NOT AN INPUT DEVICE THAT YOU STRAP ONTO YOUR BRAIN. 

Cue the excuses.  No, wait, fuck the excuses.  If you’ve got time to lurk, you’ve got time to fucking post.  If you were busy, you wouldn’t be VIEWING all fucking day, you’d be out doing whatever it is that is making you too busy.  If you don’t know what to say, then TRY USING THAT GRAY SHIT BETWEEN YOUR EARS.  That’s WHAT IT’S FOR!  UNNNNG!

Apparently, I piss people off when I say things like that.  Too fucking bad.  You NEED to be pissed off, you complacent lumps of Goddamn glorp.  Other people get pissed, I have been told, because “they only come by once a month and don’t want to see this shit”.  WATCH ME NOT CARE.  If we’re only good enough for once a month, then we’re obviously not good enough to worry about what you see when you deign to grace us with your fucking presence every few weeks.

I hate the humans, because they are walking bags of wasted potential.  By that definition, most people here are merely human.  You’re obviously intelligent, but allowing yourselves to turn into receive-only devices means that you have no advantage over stupid people.  You have absolutely no advantage over the people who spend every evening parked in front of the fucking couch, watching America’s Most Inane Home Videos or Haunted Whatever The Fuck It Is This Week.

Either you’re a superior mutant, or you’re a consumer.  Being a “consumer”, of course, is not only restricted to buying whatever fucking gizmo that They say you just HAVE to have this week.  No.  What it IS, is a person who accepts input at all times, regardless of what that input is.  It could be whatever trash they’re selling for money, or it could be whatever trash costs you your fucking soul.  It could be this fucking rant, for that matter.

Does that piss you off?  Are you ANNOYED with The Good Reverend?  GOOD.  Maybe that will help you WAKE THE FUCK UP and RIP OUT THE GODDAMN FEEDING TUBE that The Spider has installed everywhere, including this damn church.  Hate on me all you fucking like, if that helps you GET OFF THE FIGURATIVE COUCH AND START HOLLERING YOUR GUTS UP.

My mother told me, “When the rock hits you, holler.”  Well, brothers and sisters, we live in a fucking HAIL STORM of rocks, and I don’t hear many of you hollering.  No.  I hear you wheezing a little as you view non-existent "new posts".

You now have four (4) choices:

1.  You can tell me what your excuses are.  I don’t care.  You can also tell me that “you have to digest this a bit”.  Bullshit.  That means you can’t make yourself say anything.  Or you can tell me what an asshole I am, and how I’m The Cancer That Is Killing PD.  Yeah, right, whatever.  The place is fucking terminal anyway.

2.  You can pretend you never saw this, and go back to staring at your monitor.  Good doggie.

3.  You can get mad and leave, like Demosquid.  Well, at least you’ll have one less way to lie to yourself, and you might eventually start THINKING FOR YOURSELF, while you bitterly curse my name and tell everyone who killed Discordianism with his angry, howling rants (which were just fine until they were aimed your way).  It's still better than convincing yourself that you're not as grey as Jeffrey Dahmer's last date.

4.  You can RIP OUT THE FEEDING TUBE and HOWL YOUR GUTS OUT, like the Goddamn mutant you were BORN TO BE.  Obviously, this may require working past a little butthurt, so some might not manage it.

If I had my fucking way, I’d fold this piece of shit up and chuck it into the ashcan of Usenet, alongside alt.discordianism and alt.slack, the other great failed attempts.  Because it HAS failed…And the CoN didn’t even have to DO anything, because WE DID IT TO OURSELVES.

CONGRATULATIONS, MONKEYS.  YOU FUCKED YOURSELF BEFORE THE MACHINE™ COULD FUCK YOU OVER.  That’s like a nerdy kid making fun of himself before the Cool Kids could do it.

Way to go.

Or Kill Me Some More.

Discordianism oughta be the kind thing you do when you're perfectly drunk, only you do it when you're coldly sober. It oughta be the person a Scotsman becomes when he evolves past the mamallian analogue of a gecko to a t-rex.

I choose when to speak anything of substance, but I never choose to not say something when I can do. I'm an asshole that way. I'm surprised they don't make a permanent record of it on my File.

I love the silliness too much to ever give it up, or even often indulge only in it. But fuck, you gotta bite those words off or you will choke on them. Shit your hate or you will die.

And that's exactly it:  Most members now contain their hate.  They are here to be entertained, while they strain like mad bastards to hold their shit in.  They say "I never know what to say" or "I feel intimidated" or whatever.  What they're REALLY saying is "I am small, and I LIKE being small.  Please feed me something edgy or angry and like that so that I can imagine what it's like to NOT be small.  But I only want to imagine it because the world is scary and you can hide if you're small".

You and I, on the other hand, are LARGE.  Our asses alone have small aircraft trapped in orbit.  The smallest of our butt-nuggets would crush an ore hauler.  My mouth is so fucking big, I can fill a 5 gallon bucket with the FIRST BURP UP of my spew.

Small is for monkeys.

I think I fixed my rage button (LA broke it, some how) and I choose door number four. I have a rant a-brewin' and an entry for the BIP2012 I need to write, which I suspect falls into this vein.

Therein lies the problem, of course. If no on responds to a thread (any given thread), people get upset. If someone responds with a one-liner without contributing, people get upset. It's the odd double standard. I mean, "better than just posting mittens" doesn't seem to be enough anymore. Everyone's afraid of not living up to an ideal of the past, or legitimately have no thoughts other than "I vaguely agree with this sentiment."

On the other side of the coin, there's the problem with people getting involved in a thread, and then staying in that one single thread. And nobody wants to leave that thread. And then people complain that the conversation's only in one thread. But can you really blame them? "Hey, here's an interesting thing to talk about And people are responding! Let's keep the conversation going!"

Ultimately though, spitting at the wall is... just that. And we all know that half the time that's what you'll be doing, posting here. But the question is, why do it? For me, it's pretty simple. I have fun, get to read all kinds of interesting things, and when the stars are aligned properly and some one has remembered to make the appropriate sacrices on my dark altar, I rise from R'lyeh and write something. Sometimes I feel like I'm being ignored, but hey. I'd rather write and get it out and have it go unnoticed than run around with a scream with no mouth. Maybe it's just me, though.

If you agree with 80% of what I say, great.  If you agree with 100% of what I say, get your damn head examined.

And it's that 20% that releases the Holiness™ when you whack it.

I agree with the assessment of Discordianism and that it isn't meant to be a passive thing and that people need to get off of their thumbs and do something about all of this fucked up shit. 

I just don't agree with the assessment that if we aren't all doing it HERE, it isn't happening.  Or at least that is the implication I am reading, but I will admit I could be reading it wrong. 

Most of my Discordia happens in meat space these days.  That's just the way my life is set up right now.  Sucks for the board, I know, but it can't be helped until someone drops a big wad of dough in my lap and I can give up my day job.

I am speaking only to what happens here.

And if people have become passive HERE, where there's no risk, then I can safely infer, I think, that they're passive EVERYWHERE ELSE.

My excuse is that I'm still a bit afraid of being shouted at for having wrong opinions, which I can attribute to being bullied in middle school and what not. But the facts are, I've learned lots of stuff, probably most stuff, the times I've voiced my badly thought-out opinions or broken rules. So fuck my excuse.

You aren't in middle school anymore.

Incidentally, horrible revenge for long ago bullying is encouraged in The Church.

Oh sure, but how many people have the reproductive organs to stand up and go?

"Hey yo, Roger, I see where you're coming from, and I gotta say, you pretty much got that shit, but there's this little thing that's bothering me with. So, here's the deal: *insert issue here*"?

Let's face it, you're awesome. In the sense you inspire awe, the kind that's in "awful". And very many people here have been put on shelves in people's minds where the person in question that they just don't disagree with certain people. EVEN IF THEY DO. They just think "oh, well, it was probably a miscommunication" or worse "Ah, I'm just wrong, and they are obviously right". I admit, I have been guilty of this myself, and I certainly will be again. After all, I'm only human.

But that's no reason not to make an attempt to recognize it, and by doing so correct it. Of course, speaking up, at any given time, takes a lot. Especially when it's people you respect. But maybe it's about time that we take a good hard look at ourselves. Are we hear to repeat fancy slogans like "Think For Yourself, Schmuck"? Are we here to praise Roger and Payne, and listen to Poppa ECH tell us stories about being on a boat? Ring our hands over the Ain't-It-Awfuls (not gonna lie, that one's WAY to prevalent these days)? What are we REALLY doing, anyway?

FACT:  As awful and wretched as I may be, I cannot actually punch anyone through the interbutts.  I know this, because I have tried it...At great cost to myself in replacement plasma screens.

I am the SAFEST ape to poke, because I can't reach through the bars.

If someone can't deal with me on PD, they can't deal with anything, anywhere.

Small is for too distracted. It's for over stimulated and unfocused. It's for burned out before you burned bright, not on the grand lifetime scale, but on the daily grind scale.

It's for feeling tired and irritable when you've got only an hour into your day.

What the bleeding hell does "only" human mean, anyway?

I mean, really, when is that EVER a good excuse for any fucking thing?

Humans FIGURE SHIT OUT.  Humans figured out how to get off this stinking mudball and walk on the goddamn moon.  Whose fault is it that we haven't gotten any farther?

YOURS.

What have YOU done to pull the TV remove out of your ass and advance the species today?  Hell, what have you done today to even make one person's life a little better, a little easier?  What have you done today to make another human sit up and realize, "fuck, I'm wasting my goddamn life, here?"

Slack?  Sure.  Slack...  Slack means to take a fucking break once in awhile.  It doesn't mean to spend your whole life sitting on the couch with your hand down your underwear wondering why somebody ELSE doesn't get you a fucking beer... it means invent a goddamn robot to fetch the beer, open it, and pour it into a nice, frosty mug FOR your lazy ass.

This board has its Holy...  Some people spew it on a daily basis, others let it fall like the occasional birdshit that lands on your shoulder at the bus stop.  A few can hit you with a line that makes you stop three days later in the middle of traffic saying, "Holy FUCK, I GET IT."  (Shit, some can do all three.)

What people seem to miss is that EVERYBODY has that Holy, if they just open their goddamn eyes, unpack their brains, and SEE what's going on around them, every goddamn day.  Letting yourself get so wrapped up in layers of webs from the day to day bullshit that gets wrapped around us blinds you, it sucks the Holy right out of you, to the point where you don't even fight back.

That's not human.  That's sheep.  And that makes me fuckin' cry.

Is slack a sub-genius thing?  Those guys are weird.

I don't recall discordianism ever requiring having a voice or using it.  Either to rant at others, or belittle them. It is interesting to get other people to think if only for a moment, but thinking isn't strictly necessary.

I'm a little troubled that you see yourself or others on this board as a 'superior mutant'.  Any mutations among us are sufficiently small as to make us virtually indistinguishable from each other.  Looking down on others is a little pointless, when the location of the high ground is still in question.  Of course, if you're sure you're on the high ground, by all means look down and tell us what you see.

You seem to see our society as some kind of trap to hold us back, when it seems to me that society is just as likely the wind beneath our wings.  Allowing billions of individuals the chance to work together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.  The best part is, we don't even have to see our part in this, we don't have to understand it.  It works in spite of our intelligence and ability to see what is going on.

It's quite the trip.  If creating subversion is your trip, do it.  If it's catching the latest episode of Breaking Bad, do it.  If it's killing your fellow man, well, I would never counsel that others do that, but I know that some freak out there will, do it.

Sometimes I think you got hold of the brown acid, and are having a bad trip...

You should seek help, if you're troubled.

Of course, if you're sure you're on the high ground, by all means look down and tell us what you see.

Absolute perfection.  Everything's GREAT, ALL THE TIME.  What COULD be wrong, in this best of all possible worlds?  It's not like the humans are ripping up the bottom of the lifeboat to make clubs to smack each other with, right?  Right right right?  Or that our economic system is being policed by thieves, worldwide?  That's just silly.

And it's not like the vast majority of humans would kill you if you tried to improve things, and in fact have consistently done exactly that, right?

No, humans are great.  I was totally kidding about the mutant thing.

Learn to [/tag], wlfjstr.

Also, that is an unfortunate stance to hold.  Society in theory is a good thing, but society in reality, at least the American one, which is the only one I know, in reality it allows the people who hold power to crush and terrorize the people who don't hold power.

Realizing that you have a voice and using it is a way to fight against the reality of societal power, given enough voices. 

"Allowing billions of people the chance to work together to create something bigger than themselves?"  Well, that would be nice, in theory, if there weren't a small but vocal (there's some people who've found their voice) percentage of the population who want you to be re-educated, or jailed, or killed, simply because you don't believe the same things they do.  Their vocalness serves the people who hold power, and the people who hold power tell the people who tell people things to tell the people with no power that this is what most people want, and then most people, who don't think they have a voice, go along with it because they don't use their voice.

The people who feel "intimidated" oughta keep in mind that people who write and argue well didn't START OUT THAT WAY. They got that way by diving in and writing and arguing and getting their asses kicked and GETTING BETTER. Don't like to be beaten? Learn to tighten your argument until you aren't getting beaten so often. Don't like to be told your writing isn't conveying the message you meant to convey? GET BETTER. Use the criticism to tighten your writing until it stops people in their tracks and makes their hearts leap into their throats.

Have I mentioned that I LOVE it when dumbass hippies try to psychoanalyze me?

I mean, I don't NEED an excuse to shart all over someone, but it's really nice when they run up and INSIST.

It's almost like they want to do you a favor and present themselves to you as target of the day. 

And what was the point of that post?  I think he was actually just trying to be immature and get on your nerves as much as possible.

While I respect his ability to stand on his hind legs and holler, what he hollered was your garden variety hipster dominance shit.

"If you disagree with my deliberately contrarian viewpoint, you must be on drugs."

HAW!

When I'm on drugs, you fuckers will KNOW it.

Is slack a sub-genius thing?  Those guys are weird.

I don't recall discordianism ever requiring having a voice or using it.  Either to rant at others, or belittle them. It is interesting to get other people to think if only for a moment, but thinking isn't strictly necessary.

Oh my! I wonder if this statement will have any bearing on the following ones. Let's find out.

Quote
I'm a little troubled that you see yourself or others on this board as a 'superior mutant'.  Any mutations among us are sufficiently small as to make us virtually indistinguishable from each other.  Looking down on others is a little pointless, when the location of the high ground is still in question.  Of course, if you're sure you're on the high ground, by all means look down and tell us what you see.

Part of being the Pope is having the Divine Right to assert one's own moral superiority. However, in this case, TDRR really is morally superior. Especially to you. So is the average turnip, by the by.

Quote
You seem to see our society as some kind of trap to hold us back, when it seems to me that society is just as likely the wind beneath our wings.  Allowing billions of individuals the chance to work together to create something greater than the sum of its parts.  The best part is, we don't even have to see our part in this, we don't have to understand it.

In Syria, I hear the wind beneath their wings is so fantastic and amazing that most of the people don't even have any wings anymore. But no, Human society is a beautiful thing. No, really. I don't see why we should change one little thing about it.

Quote
It works regardless in spite of our intelligence and ability to see what is going on.

It's quite the trip.  If creating subversion is your trip, do it.  If it's catching the latest episode of Breaking Bad, do it.  If it's killing your fellow man, well, I would never counsel that others do that, but I know that some freak out there will, do it.

Sometimes I think you got hold of the brown acid, and are having a bad trip...
But it's your trip, have fun!

I guess thinking really isn't strictly necessary in your universe.

Every day for me, V3x, is a new experience in gifted morons.  You can't get rid of them, no matter how many condoms you sell, so you learn to appreciate them, like a fine bottle of Mad Dog 20/20.  Each has his/her own bouquet of stupidity.  This one in particular is a sassy vintage, with a minimal forehead and no frontal lobe aftertaste.

I give him a 6.

In fact, we should outlaw condoms and birth control altogether, because the only people who use them are people who are smart enough to use them. Instead, we should turn every window on every school bus into an emergency escape hatch, with a handle that looks exactly like a Snickers bar.

The second is my rebuttal to the op, as much as I dig it, I DO come here for good writing.  Just like I go to my books for good writing.  I LOVE good writing.  There's a shitton of it here.  I'm not a good writer, and that's the primary reason I don't write here often, and I AM actually really fucking busy, and barely use the interwebs anymore. 

I love seeing this kind of provocation though, because aside from me and my involvement here, I'm always always glad to see what comes out of this site.  And shit!  Look at this, I am writing.  When I stop by and peruse here.... If it's stupid, I don't spend much time on it.  I can say that every time I come back, what I see is good fucking writing, and fucking inspiring ass shit.

Maybe someday I'll start writing things down more.  I don't feel passive.  I love life, I love living, and I think if anything I should probably calm the fuck down soon, because sooner or later, They are bound to catch up to what I'm doing.

Also, that is an unfortunate stance to hold.  Society in theory is a good thing, but society in reality, at least the American one, which is the only one I know, in reality it allows the people who hold power to crush and terrorize the people who don't hold power.

Society is a lie held in common for all mankind. Not for the "good of", or even the "lesser of two evils of", more a comforting illusion of order and an understandable plan.

It has always been thus. It is not a weapon, nor is it a shield. It is the webs by which we blind ourselves to the darkest and most peripheral of threats. Not that there aren't people who manipulate society form the vantage point of The Big Picture for their own aims, it's just that ultimately those self same people have the same investment in not exposing The Lie.

It is a lie that we need a man to do a mans work. FOUR MORE YEARS is a lie. Earning a wage is a lie, and so is all money. Theism is a lie just as much as atheism. Advancement is a lie, along with enlightenment, resurrection and legacy. It is a lie that we go to school to learn anything but lying to ourselves and others. And it is a lie that you could, should or even would want to do anything about it.

The truth is out there, but from down here all you get is The TruthTM, and a shiv in the kidneys if you question it.

The truth is out there, but from down here all you get is The TruthTM, and a shiv in the kidneys if you question it.

I know you're our Messiah and all, but I absolutely disagree with that.  Except the bit about money, that's true kind of.

Heathen.

But anyway, these lies aren't bad (or good). They just are. They are the means by which we can effectively reduce individuals into statistics. By doing so we reduce the complexity of a large interconnected and interdependent network of individuals, such as any sizeable human population, into something "easy" to understand. We create society.

The simplest societies are the famed "pyramid" shaped ones. Yanno, one man on top (because God{s} put him there), several experts in fighting, praying and making money in the middle, and a huge mass of consumers, cannon fodder and other peasants.

It is a lie that God made The King, it is a Lie that the experts have any real expertise beyond a few lucky circumstances and an inherited fortune or two. And it is a lie that the peasants are faceless due to their sheer mass.

As society becomes more complex, so do the lies, and then we get to what I was saying.

That we can understand anything beyond what it is to be human within a large human population from this is certainly debatable, but that falsehood is the grease by which we keep "society" from seizing up is, I believe, not.

I've only read page one, but the first thing I want to say is that I'm already in love with this thread, and I love the first post. 

The second is my rebuttal to the op, as much as I dig it, I DO come here for good writing.

So do I.

But if everyone does that, then there'll be nothing to read.  It's like Will Rogers said, only backwards:  "We can't all be heroes, because someone has to stand on the curb and clap as they go by."

Yep. If people just read and don't participate, the forum dies, and bye-bye entertainment. You don't have to be a good writer; just say something.

This.

I'm not a writer. I suck. But I love talking with you guys. There's some minds here that are at least verging on great, and some minds that strike me as fucked up but are still up for a good scrap.There's always great info and entertainment here, and when it's dead there's a shit ton of old threads. Of course the current stuff is better because it's a reality check. There's a ton of misinformation and disinformation out there and if I'm not sure about something, I can post it and see how big of a hole gets poked in it. It's like a bunch of philosophers, scientists and crazies all came back to life and decided to fuck around on the internet almost 24/7.

But the thing is, if you don't say anything you might as well be watching TV. And you've GOT things to say because you're slogging through the post-Weird Times. Yeah, history repeats, but has anybody before us lived through shit like this?

It's ok. You can speak. You can tell people what's happening and not worry that people are going to think your life is so fucked up that they quit talking to you. Somebody here has has probably had an even more fucked up life at some point. You can say "HEY, FUCK YOU" and the worst case scenario is that you might get dogpiled. "ZOMG SOMEBODY MIGHT BE MEAN TO ME ON THE INTERNET"? You're going to let THAT stop you? Chances are you won't get modded or banned even if EVERYBODY HATES YOU. Which "everybody" probably won't. So WTF?

Payne, I think I get your point, but it kind of gets into all those weird Buddhist concepts of HOW things exist. Money is a lie and a construct on one level, but when your kids are hungry or some shit like that it gets too fucking real. Kind of like saying a tree has no inherent existence, or is just a bunch of molecules with spaces between them or whatever, until you hit one.   :x

I'm not saying that at all.

I'm saying that all humans are venal base creatures, and lying is easier than The Truth. I'm not saying that nothing is true, just that nothing true is valuable in society.

I woke up today to the hiss of helicopter rotors whirling just outside my window. Not the WHUMP-WHUMP-WHUMP of one a moderate distance away, this one was so close I could practically hear the pilot laughing at people with their windows open. Obama is in town, you see, and I live near a freeway, light rail line, and heavy freight tracks, so I suppose they were just making sure the Muslim Brotherhood hadn't formed a powerful alliance with a fixed gear phalanx of trustafarians somewhere along the president's route.

The chopper finally quit making passes over my house but I was too hot to go back to sleep. There is an unwelcoming committee planning to shout angrily and wave barely readable signs. I'm not going. He's not likely to notice and the secret service is. I've been careful about staying anonymous—not that I think I can evade detection if they REALLY want to get my info, but I'm not going to make it a simple matter of taking a photograph of my my face.

The other day I was at a protest with an obscured identity and a hand made sign. I wanted to get a better sense of how far away you can read it so I crossed an intersection. My estimate was about 40-50 feet, decent I thought. When I returned to my post, my friend informed me of the alarmed security guards that had emptied out of the nearby bank when I had obliviously approached it. We also had to walk through downtown to leave the site, masked with the protest sign, which scared the shit out of the bourgeois diners and induced nervous looks from the hotel doormen and lone suits on quiet streets. Amusing, but not the point.

The whole idea was not for people to notice me, but notice my message. That's what people hire me to do as a graphic designer and I appreciate being mostly invisible. I'm not one to talk much unless I feel like I've got something to say that hasn't been said. If writing for the sake of forum activity is going to be the new norm, I'm going to start posting pinealist nonsense, which I feel exemplifies the idea that activity is more important than communicating or even just listening. It's like disturbing people with your appearance instead of your message.

Yep. If people just read and don't participate, the forum dies, and bye-bye entertainment. You don't have to be a good writer; just say something.

This.

I'm not a writer. I suck. But I love talking with you guys. There's some minds here that are at least verging on great, and some minds that strike me as fucked up but are still up for a good scrap.There's always great info and entertainment here, and when it's dead there's a shit ton of old threads. Of course the current stuff is better because it's a reality check. There's a ton of misinformation and disinformation out there and if I'm not sure about something, I can post it and see how big of a hole gets poked in it. It's like a bunch of philosophers, scientists and crazies all came back to life and decided to fuck around on the internet almost 24/7.

But the thing is, if you don't say anything you might as well be watching TV. And you've GOT things to say because you're slogging through the post-Weird Times. Yeah, history repeats, but has anybody before us lived through shit like this?

It's ok. You can speak. You can tell people what's happening and not worry that people are going to think your life is so fucked up that they quit talking to you. Somebody here has has probably had an even more fucked up life at some point. You can say "HEY, FUCK YOU" and the worst case scenario is that you might get dogpiled. "ZOMG SOMEBODY MIGHT BE MEAN TO ME ON THE INTERNET"? You're going to let THAT stop you? Chances are you won't get modded or banned even if EVERYBODY HATES YOU. Which "everybody" probably won't. So WTF?

YES YES YES.

And you know, I don't WANT everyone to agree with me. I want people to rip my argument up and challenge my point and challenge ME to defend them better than they can attack them.

If I'm tearing apart your argument, it's because you posted something interesting enough to be read and challenging enough to be rebutted. That's GOOD, not bad.

I woke up today to the hiss of helicopter rotors whirling just outside my window. Not the WHUMP-WHUMP-WHUMP of one a moderate distance away, this one was so close I could practically hear the pilot laughing at people with their windows open. Obama is in town, you see, and I live near a freeway, light rail line, and heavy freight tracks, so I suppose they were just making sure the Muslim Brotherhood hadn't formed a powerful alliance with a fixed gear phalanx of trustafarians somewhere along the president's route.

The chopper finally quit making passes over my house but I was too hot to go back to sleep. There is an unwelcoming committee planning to shout angrily and wave barely readable signs. I'm not going. He's not likely to notice and the secret service is. I've been careful about staying anonymous—not that I think I can evade detection if they REALLY want to get my info, but I'm not going to make it a simple matter of taking a photograph of my my face.

The other day I was at a protest with an obscured identity and a hand made sign. I wanted to get a better sense of how far away you can read it so I crossed an intersection. My estimate was about 40-50 feet, decent I thought. When I returned to my post, my friend informed me of the alarmed security guards that had emptied out of the nearby bank when I had obliviously approached it. We also had to walk through downtown to leave the site, masked with the protest sign, which scared the shit out of the bourgeois diners and induced nervous looks from the hotel doormen and lone suits on quiet streets. Amusing, but not the point.

The whole idea was not for people to notice me, but notice my message. That's what people hire me to do as a graphic designer and I appreciate being mostly invisible. I'm not one to talk much unless I feel like I've got something to say that hasn't been said. If writing for the sake of forum activity is going to be the new norm, I'm going to start posting pinealist nonsense, which I feel exemplifies the idea that activity is more important than communicating or even just listening. It's like disturbing people with your appearance instead of your message.

The President seems to have been timing his motorcade to interfere with my Max rides. He got me TWICE, both coming and going.

THANKS A LOT, OBAMA.

I'm a little troubled that you see yourself or others on this board as a 'superior mutant'.

You should seek help, if you're troubled.

Of course, if you're sure you're on the high ground, by all means look down and tell us what you see.

Absolute perfection.  Everything's GREAT, ALL THE TIME.  What COULD be wrong, in this best of all possible worlds?  It's not like the humans are ripping up the bottom of the lifeboat to make clubs to smack each other with, right?  Right right right?  Or that our economic system is being policed by thieves, worldwide?  That's just silly.

And it's not like the vast majority of humans would kill you if you tried to improve things, and in fact have consistently done exactly that, right?

No, humans are great.  I was totally kidding about the mutant thing. 

*burp*

Dumbass.

You choose your trip, whether it's the brown acid, koolaid, or communion wine, it's your choice.  It sounds to me like you choose to look at all the bad and surmise that the world is just a bad place.  That sounds to me alot like the curse of Gruad Greyface.

Most of the things you whine about happening in the world, are things that change slowly.  Nearly all of them are things that have improved throughout history improving most people's lot.  The 'theives' that run our economy are better by leaps and bounds than the 'theives' who ran our economies 150 years ago.  These things are changing for the better, and it is important that people continue to strive for their improvement, and improvements have been made.

Sure, there is lots of bad in the world, but there are a lot of good things, too.  I personally try to keep in mind all the bad that people can do, and then focus on the good I see, and can create.  If you want to get angry and holler, that's great, too.  But I'm under no obligation to join your revolution.

Learn to [/tag], wlfjstr.

Also, that is an unfortunate stance to hold.  Society in theory is a good thing, but society in reality, at least the American one, which is the only one I know, in reality it allows the people who hold power to crush and terrorize the people who don't hold power.

Realizing that you have a voice and using it is a way to fight against the reality of societal power, given enough voices. 

"Allowing billions of people the chance to work together to create something bigger than themselves?"  Well, that would be nice, in theory, if there weren't a small but vocal (there's some people who've found their voice) percentage of the population who want you to be re-educated, or jailed, or killed, simply because you don't believe the same things they do.  Their vocalness serves the people who hold power, and the people who hold power tell the people who tell people things to tell the people with no power that this is what most people want, and then most people, who don't think they have a voice, go along with it because they don't use their voice.

Edit for sentence completion.

Yeah, I should have used the preview button at the very least, to see the error beforehand.

I don't believe my stance is that unfortunate.  I have been blessed with some of the best things this world has to offer, it has given me the chances, that others don't have, to grow as a person, and to help others as I am able.  I just don't see the point in yelling at people to change.

Society isn't a theory, or a good thing, it's just a thing.  American society (a subset of the greater human society?) is flawed, just as everything we humans do is flawed, but as I responded on the other comment, it has improved.  When was the last time a company hired a bunch of thugs to kill strikers here?  the 1930's?  In the 1930's, if a priest abused you as a child, what were the chances the priest would pay for his crime?

There has always been that small vocal group who thinks they know the right way, and sometimes they get in power.  But then another group sees what's wrong with the first group, and they become the group who thinks they know the right way, they fight altruisticially for their goal, and when they get power...
It's a vicious circle, that we apparently learn from very slowly.

There is another small group that is nearly as vocal fighting against the injustices that continue.  I believe the direction society goes is a product of the interplay between these groups and all the others (even those whose voices you don't hear).  It is exceedingly unclear to me which one is right over the other.  Each side has salient points at one time or another, and determining truth, for me anyway, is a tricky endeavour.   I think you should count yourself lucky, if you are sure of the right path in all these things, then count yourself lucky.  Faith in your convictions is a powerful bulwark.

If "God" could be proven to exist, he would instantly once again not exist because all faith which makes him up of what he is would dissipate into fact.

Essentially killing "God"

You are assuming he eats faith.  He doesn't.  He eats souls.

The afterlife must therefore be a excuse to stuff gods face full of delicious tasty souls.

Does that make mankind "God's" cattle then?  :|

Yeah, but he can only eat people that believe in him.

The funniest part of THAT is that the joke is on the atheists.

Atheists must once they die assume the form of "God's" equivelent of butterfingers.

No.  No God gets to eat them.

So they become this pathetic ghost that shuffles to the office and back, every day.  Forever.

Here dumbass.

It's that comma issue you have, again.

No God gets to eat them.  (As in no God in any belief system gets to eat them.)

Not:

No, God gets to eat them.

The brown acid is a reference to a quote from the original woodstock. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=brown%20acid

I was referring to the third definition given in the link. "3. Something that was supposed to be pleasurable but turned out nightmarish."

There was no intent to accuse you of any specific act of any kind.  I did not mean to devalue your opinion.  It is a valid opinion.

I do maintain that it is largely negative in nature.  That's ok with me, but I try to keep more positive about things.  The point of my post was to show that contrast.  I thought the brown acid metaphor was appropriate, because it addressed how people can choose to have a negative experience if they want and nobody can stop them.

I expect part of this misunderstanding is due to vastly dissimilar experiences.  I don't think that should keep us from being able to along though.

I'd like to point out that you are completely misusing that metaphor. Let's just look at it, shall we? Your use of "brown acid" is to indicate that somethign was supposed to be positive and turned out negative. Okay, fine. BUT you go on to say
Quote from: wlfjstr
   I thought the brown acid metaphor was appropriate, because it addressed how people can choose to have a negative experience if they want and nobody can stop them.
implying that it is the attitude of a person that dictates whether or not the experience was positive or negative. Well, I hate to tell you, but "brown acid" indicates the opposite of that. Unless you're saying that TDRR, or whomever else you are referring to a deliberately choosing to have negative experiences. But then, if that's the case "brown acid" is rather specific and completely inappropriate.

I'll take you at your word that you are ancient, but I find it hard to believe that you are that much older than I.  Not that it matters.

I think these kinds of forums make it excruciatingly easy to both give and take offense.  I rarely intend to give offense, and I do my best to not take it.  I'm not always perfect at either.

I've always tried to consider both my audience and my message when writing.  Perhaps I've misread this audience, perhaps I'm much more abrasive than I thought.  But in general, I will stand by what I've written and will try to clarify if I haven't communicated my intent appropriately.  In a place where the meaning of words is debated regularly, I would imagine this is necessary frequently.  I can see how my post could have been taken that way, and it sounds like you respect that it wasn't my intention.  I'm more than happy to consider constructive criticism, and will do my best to heed your recommendations.

It's really simple, actually.  You write your post, then read it over to make sure it says WHAT you want to say, in the WAY you planned to say it.

Forums by their nature leave out all visual cues to communication.  Sometimes people even find ME abrasive, which is funny considering that I am the kindest, most considerate bastard on the interbutt supermarket.

1.  I'm aware of what "the brown acid" is.  I have running sores older than you.

2.  What pissed me off was the incredibly condescending manner of your post, and the passive-aggressive follow ups.

3.  I'll let this go.  You might consider reading your posts from the other guy's POV before posting.  It is entirely possible to get your point across without sounding like you're talking to a 10 year old.

I'll take you at your word that you are ancient, but I find it hard to believe that you are that much older than I.  Not that it matters.

Virtually EVERYBODY knows about the brown acid. Movies, dipschiltz. Pop culture references. Fuck, my daughter has ringtones of older shit than Woodstock.

I think these kinds of forums make it excruciatingly easy to both give and take offense.  I rarely intend to give offense, and I do my best to not take it.  I'm not always perfect at either.

I've always tried to consider both my audience and my message when writing.  Perhaps I've misread this audience, perhaps I'm much more abrasive than I thought.  But in general, I will stand by what I've written and will try to clarify if I haven't communicated my intent appropriately.  In a place where the meaning of words is debated regularly, I would imagine this is necessary frequently.  I can see how my post could have been taken that way, and it sounds like you respect that it wasn't my intention.  I'm more than happy to consider constructive criticism, and will do my best to heed your recommendations.

I think it goes beyond semantics, but we'll see what happens. *sigh*

Being quiet isn't being weak...  Failing to speak up when some asshole is stepping on your foot is being weak.
