in my experience the only way to make my brain more effective is to watch more tv.

because, as long as you keep doing simpler and simpler tasks all the time, it'll feel like your brain can handle anything.

although, there are symbols in this process, the "tailspin to slothitude," the "cabbage soup," and of course, the "oprah winfrey show," which may not be symbolic of anything but when you're up at 3am watching TiVo'd copies of the same episode 14 times in a row, it starts to seem like it's the only thing that comprises the entire universe.

Or so i've been told.

Well, yeah, but that's just the ILLUSION of being more effective.

ahem.

obviously, the BIP is the "mysticism" of discordianism.

say what you want about the greeks, but this "religion" is only 50 years old.  i think the BIP is (or will be) to Discordianism what the early Q'bala (read: not "Kabballah," or anything that Hollywood knows about) was to Judaism.

except without all the grey shit.

executive signing statement: semantical arguments countering this post with bollocks about discordianism/BIP not really being 'religions' per se, shall have no effect on the overall validity of this truth.

you ever notice how (some) people go kinda weird when the power goes out?  no lights.. no TV.. no radio.. no interwebs..

some people act like they're more vulnerable when there's no electricity spinning their gadgets around and distracting them from whatever it is they don't want to think about.

children, unless they've been conditioned, tend to like it when the power goes out.  it's exciting.

i've always liked it when the power would go out.  it's better than just turning everything off and enjoying the silence (which is good too).  but when whole city blocks go dark, you even get a break from that constant electrical hum you're always hearing but usually tune out.

there's no point here, just an observation.  the Machine is definitely powered by electricity, and also by midgets.

Revenge is the backbone of justice, regardless of everything you hear and read to the contrary.  Social justice is the idea that revenge should only be inflicted by a qualified (read: large enough) mob, but it's still revenge.

I think 'morality' is too often defined as "what you should always do."  morality can't be static like that because there's always a difference between what you should do, what you can do, and what you must do.

morality has to be contingent upon the situation, and as many factors as you have time to consider, should be considered.  so if some cockblister offs your wife or rapes your kid or says something nice about Jesus within 3 miles of your house, sure the first instinct is to drop a clusterbomb on his house and smite his family with a curse for 17 generations.  but you can't always do that, unless you want to make things worse for yourself, like RWHN said.

in a vacuum, i agree with LMNO.  i mean, our society places way too much importance on acting like you're getting along with some asshole you could care less about, putting up with retarded small talk when you'd rather introduce your heel to his uvula, saying "excuse me" and "bless you" at all the right places, and making polite euphemisms for everything from having sex to taking a piss.  but given that that is the society where you live, and morality is just one code of conduct, like any other code of conduct, to achieve some goal or other; it stands to reason that morality should be as solid and steadfast as chocolate pudding, at least where it concerns action.

i guess all i'm saying is, let morality define your motivation, and let intuition and your brain define your actions.

Think for Yourself, Schmuck! / Re: SBOTD: Lost in Stagnation

Because:

-I would much rather spend every hour of my life every day doing something that brought me joy, rather than sacrificing 40 hours a week to do work that means very little to me personally.

That's 40 hours a week if you're lucky.  Most people put in hours and hours of "overtime" just to keep food on the table.  Just so they can put enough gas in their truck to go back and do it again tomorrow.

Personally, I like my job most of the time.  I get to define my own schedule, and I'm doing things that I like to do.  But still, there's that "well, that's what THIS me likes to do, but my actual self... couldn't really care less."

But really, I think one thing that's severely lacking in Western society is some relative of 'empty nest syndrome.'  There's this (ridiculous) sense that everything is fine in this part of the world, and there really is no more history left to be made.  It's a lie, of course, but it plays well into the complacency we're supposed to have.

because:

- in order to survive (in our culture, 'survival' adds up to a lot more than eating and sleeping), you have to make money.  to make money, you have to have a job.

- the job is the central aspect of life.  it is the single most time-consuming activity (for most people).  the fact that you spend so much time doing it necessitates that you adjust to the belief that it actually IS important.

- reconciling the "pursuit of happiness" with the "security of survival" has always been a big factor in human life.  what one wants as opposed to what one needs and what one is expected to contribute to society, is a central theme in almost every genre of every form of expression we have.

but i really like your writing. i need to make one... but i can't seem to get it flowing :/
