What is wrong with this thread? I saw there were new messages, I opened the thread, and suddenly my whole apartment is empty except for my laptop, and I am naked.

Power to the actual people!
You better just don't try adding a link to it to the Discordian Wiki or you get instablocked because of Loveshadian legal threats... I only added a link to the Intermittens collection in the DisLib, half-asleep and dumb as I was, kinda ignoring that this includes the new issue too... :horrormirth:
Quote from: Légu on July 25, 2020, 03:57:03 PMI noted that this was very much like meditation, so begin by meditating (concentrate on the breath). However, instead of dismissing thoughts as you would in normal meditation, try to notice the idea arising first and then the sentences being formed. Language is not necessary for thought, so there will always be a moment between creating an idea and describing it. After you've mastered that, try to 'catch' the thought before you can form it into sentences. If you can't stop a sentence from forming, discard the thought and wait for the next one to arise. Eventually you'll be left with just the idea and no language - logical and unsymbolic.
Reminds me of what happens when you start reading faster than your "inner voice" can speak - not skipping over the text, but really quickly reading every single word, and you only percieve the meaning, but don't "read it out" inside your mind anymore. This process is a prerequisite for high-speed reading, and it was pretty fun to experiment with apps that helped you train that. I can't find most of those I used to try out anymore though, and the ones I can still find aren't free anymore. :roll

How about adding the forums of the oldest (somehow existing for about 20 years) and biggest (prove me wrong!) active (more or less) German (speaking) Discordian (Parenthesis) group, Aktion 23?
How about, um... adding our brand new site? Yeah, I know, pretty shameless advertising from a guy who only posts something every five years... :roll:

It's an anime Pepe with that ugly 4chan man for the lower bits. This is a wretch.

To be fair, I only saw the avatar after you mentioned it, but a name like AIDSKING is bad enough.


Yeah, once when I was thirteen I thought "what could be the most inappropriate username ever?" so here I am, h8ers gonna h8, deal with it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
And if you're afraid I'm a Nazi, don't worry, when I first got in touch with my local antifa they all thought I were an undercover cop so I know how it feels to be misjudged. Also discordians have to stick apart, so I don't care if you don't like me, as long as we help each other create wonderful bits of propaganda :*

Nazi isn't even necessary. Chan-bastards in general stick in my craw terribly. There just aren't any good ones left: it's nazis or it's gamers or it's edgelords with their own hate-ons, and everyone treats offending people as points to get.

You are making vague gestures of nonhostility, but "h8ers gonna h8" and so forth indicate that you don't actually give a fuck, and in your world it is Someone Else's Problem.

I have bad news: it's not. It's your problem. You actually get to choose how people react to you. I have had some terrible usernames; I use them in places I want to burn down and NOWHERE ELSE. I don't ever use Nazi-tied memes at all, I want to prevent friendly fire. Etc.

So consider that, consider your massive colorful signature that looks like a "lol mine's better" version of the more elaborate sigs here, consider your dismissive attitude to criticism, consider the memeage and the shitty, possibly even homophobic username.

Consider that you are the only one Like This here. Not that we all have a lot in common, exactly, but we certainly do have the fact that we do not come across That Way, you know? Edgy. Try hard. Offensive for the sake of it.

Think on that, consider what and who the issue is before you post another "lol sorry ur butt hurts lmao ha ha ha" response.
OK, my dumb joke from before aside, and knowing most people here don't really know me (at least not well), but I'm one of the admins of the german-language forum of Aktion 23, and when 41D5K1N6 showed up there with that same name and avatar, I was a bit sceptical, too. But I got to know him, both onlne and IRL, and he sure is neither an edgelord nor a nazi and definitely not homophobic. And that signature? It's the same he uses over at our board, only translated, and it's pretty much just the style of signature we use there, with those overly pompous titles and such.

So yeah, I do understand how you get your impression, but I really believe he's worth getting a chance. That's just my two point three cents.
Yeah don't worry, I know him in person and I can confirm he is totally not a cop. Also I wasn't forced typing this at gunpoint. Hope this is helpful.

Any success yet? On my machine, it already works. :fnord:

Hey spags! Have a (possible?) future Hand of Eris symbol:

a rectangle? seems kinda square

You just need to see it from the right angle  :lol:
Yes, more of a... fourth-dimensional angle. At some point in the future, it will start looking like a Hand of Eris.

Yeah, I thought about wrapping each PDF with the TXT into a separate ZIP file, or maybe copypasting the content of the TXT file into the description field on the resource page. Or maybe both, we will see.
Thanks, I've updated it inside the ZIP file (if the could provider doesn't betray me, haven't double-checked...). Maybe I'm gonna upload the individual documents as well so people don't have to download the whole 135MB thing.
Great work! If I understood the included license correctly, I was allowed to mirror your work in the DisLib, right? If not so, just tell me and I will take it down again.

I like your logo.
Thank you. It isn't 100% done yet, though. Like the rest of the page. XD

Quote from: Mesozoic Mister Nigel on May 24, 2017, 10:16:41 PMI am super interested in this and will definitely use the link, provided that you can assure me that Reverend Uncle BadTouch is not affiliated with this project.
Currently, there are only two people (including myself) working on this thing, and as far as I know, none of them is any Uncle BadTouch.
