Aneristic Illusions / Happy Friends
March 30, 2024, 08:59:35 PM
I visited a friend today. Her passion is flying and when I saw her on the airfield walking to the plan she is about to fly into the sky I was happy because she was happy.

Here is some text that describes something similar to this:

QuoteI find it immensely comforting seeing a person being happy.
Today I finally managed to visit a good friend while she was doing what she enjoys. I never saw her this happy for such a long time. 
Sure, I experienced her happiness on many occasions, but not to this extend.
It makes me glad to see her in this state.
We should do this more often.
Follow our friends to their happy place.
Be happy because they are happy.

CN: It's about suicide

Thoughts from one of those who remain

QuoteChop Suey

Suicide is a difficult topic. What is our issue with it? Are we afraid that we will die? Is it the lost time spent with the other person? The potential for good memories?
Eris attaches no sin to a self chosen death. So the act, in itself, shouldn't bring us sorrow.
Often, it's the circumstances that lead to this end. We hear or read the story and think of all the possible ways where the plot could have taken a different route. How we could have made a difference, if we had just known how the future would play out.
But we didn't.
We have to live on.
Suffering has been lessened. There might have been better outcomes, this might be the least bad one.
I don't know.

I don't like this. I don't like this reality at all.
How can we help? Can we help? We can, I think!
I have a couch. But in Germany, I could provide money for a flight (I think, not that much money but it should be possible) and residence on my couch. But I don't have influence/money to get you a job (also no idea about bureaucratic stuff)

I concur. US politics is special. Your "the winner takes it all"-voting system truly has a lot of undemocratic consequences. The biggest, I think, is the two-party system and the extremely unhinged pre-vote period/year.

There are Songs/musical pieces of any kind which are exceptional. Which is more influential/important/significant/good* Purple Haze or Bach's Toccata und Fuge in d-Moll (BWV 565)?
People have opinions, but who knows? (I don't care. Good music is good music)

*whatever that means

Here is the link to the scientific study behind this:
https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-024-54874-4.pdf

Python meat consists of 51% Proteins and you have to feed them just 2.4 times of this amount of protein (they don't eat plants so you would have to consider the amount of protein you had to feed to the animals you feed to your pythons). This is better than Beef (for 83g protein in feed (only plants) 1g protein in beef).

An interesting part is that snakes don't spend so much of their energy on heat production/controll, so the meat producer can substitute this with other forms of energy like electricity generated from the sun.

But of course, compared to Plants...(1g of plant protein is 1g of protein for us)

Quote from: Brother Mythos on March 11, 2024, 09:07:16 AMAfter watching the senator's rebuttal to the SOTU, it occurred to me that the Golden Raspberry Award Foundation, the people who hand out those infamous "Razzies," should be encouraged to branch out from only critiquing movies, and create two (2) new categories. I suggest calling them Worst Actor, and Worst Actress in an Official Political Performance Art Piece. It's still early, of course, but I believe it will be difficult to underperform Senator Britt for a possible 45th Golden Raspberry Award.

At first I thought these awards would be an easy win for the USA. But after thinking about who would be second I realized, there are a lot of politicians who only and badly perform an act. The UK has some, Australia, .... From a comedy podcast with Indian guests I know India will be a contender in this. Germany and Austria have their Pappenheimer (Rascals (euphemism, mostly Nazis)), but they can't speak English so you won't hear from them.

That's why people who engage in politics are either fanatics of some ideology or frustrated.

I tried to make mead with less alcohol by using only a 3rd of the honey, let it ferment, clarify and remove the yeast, and then add some more honey. But forgot to stop the remaining yeast properly so it started again after I filled it into bottles and I had a small explosion after a few days (luckily the bottle was still in the Kitchen and it was easy to clean up).

For this text I won't provide transcription. I want you to be slow. (Comment if the document isn't accessible for you, and why. I will find a solution)

I think that is a german thing. The 25.12, 26.12 and 1.1 are bank holidays, add the weekends and you only need a few vacation days to get 9 days of. Some companies, e.g. my current one, make this vacation mandatory.
"Between the years" comes from the christian church, the church year ends with christmas and starts with the three holy kings day (however that is translated to english), but is currently mostly used for this one week between christmas and first of january.

I have found the time to order my thoughts. Here is why I wrote St. Tibs day isn't real:

QuoteDoes St. Tibbs day exist?

Recently this non-existence was claimed by me. It wasn't my intention, but since I didn't formulate this idea clearly and couldn't remember where it came from, our congregation understood it as me doubting and disavowing the existence of St. Tibs and their day.
Thus, our revered Brother Mythos consulted the scripture and gave proof of the existence. But in my Brain there was still this ambivalence of the (self-)percieved non-existence and the existence of the acutal day on which we wish a tippling St. Tibs day.
This text is hopefully a clear enough explanation of my feelings that you can understand why I uttered such seemingly nonsenical sentences.
In my mind, St. Tibs day is not as real as other days. It is more akin to the days "between the years" (24.12 to 1.1) as they are called in my region of the world. A time where everything slows and shuts down. Nothing major is happening, no work, no politics, no events.
Time, which is spent slouching on a couch, meeting (extended) familiy or friends, eating, a lot of eating. The world gets back up to speed after the new year starts.
St Tibs day is related to the "between the years", but not the same. There is no slowdown, no sudden stopping, it is more of a hiccup, an extrasystole, a step on a staircase that is slightly higher than the rest.
It is real, but is it fully real? Or a wrench thrown into our perfectly rotating calendars?
Every Month has exactly the same amount of days, a year is divided evenly by the number of weeks, every day of a month is on the same day of the week each year.
Everything fits, except for St. Tibs day.
Every 4th year, but then we ignore every 25th St. Tibs day, except we unignore every fourth of these ignored days. The discordian calendar solves this issue by inserting a day bewteen the 59th and 60th day of the Season of Chaos. So the day is in the Season of Chaos, but it is neither the 59th day -it happens after it- nor the 60th day - it is already over by this time.
It exists in the unreal time "between the days".
