Question:  Can I use Quantum?

Let's leave the pseudoscience for the hippies, shall we?

Pointing out flaws in a system does not imply that the system is worthless...I have no interest in explaining that in great detail to drones who couldn't figure it out on their own.  Suffice it to say that fun is all there is worth doing, and I do a bit more than I probably should.

I developed a fool-proof hangover cure:  Learn to have fun without alcohol.

When oh when will people stop mistaking symbolic issues for, er, actual issues?

When humans stop being symbology-driven.

And that would just take the fun out of everything.

Geekign Out - When engineering, chemistry, software, cooking, armoring, weaponcrafting, smithing, psychology, propaganda and dissembling, or any other simialr / related field comes up, and long, focused discussions on how to do it BETTER / FASTER / HARDER / MORE POWERFUL / BIGGER, etc.  occur, stay out and shut up.  They're having fun.

This.  Doktor Howl is all about the gadgets.

So, is there a specific degree one may aquire or is this just something you fall into like a vat of noxious chemicals?

Neither.  It's a mindset.  Do you learn to use the odd bits of technology around you and use them for your own amusement, or not?  Also, are you FOR or AGAINST destroying the major metropolis of your choice?

Well, hell.  I'm on board.

Yeah, benefit #3 is a real draw.

Yesterday, while I was soldering the first connections on my optical stunner, it occurred to me that the world isn't ready for you, Kai.  They aren't ready for understanding the rules of how the universe works...because the universe is a cold, empty place, and even contemplating it sets off all their primate rage instincts.

No, Kai, you are doomed to be the scapegoat of the Know-Nothings, the Tea Partiers, and the corporate interests that want to keep the population ignorant.  With this in mind, I am here to attempt to convert you to Mad Science.  Allow me to explain the benefits, as they compare to regular science:

1.  Regular scientists drive sensible transportation.  Mad scientists drive chopped hearses with built in weaponry.

2.  Regular scientists define a wild party as three different bean dips.  Mad scientists define a wild party as fighting the giant squid in the basement.

3.  Regular scientists go on a date, and it's dinner and a movie.  Mad scientists just strap their date to the slab and get busy.

4.  Regular scientists retire at 70.  Mad scientists go down swinging when the hero blows up their base (and we usually escape to menace the world later on, with cybernetic parts replacing the bits we lost).  Pissing yourself in the old folks home, or howling in fury in a burning/collapsing/self-destructing volcano hideout?  You choose.

5.  Regular scientists ride those silly backwards bikes to stay in shape.  Mad scientists wear a full body waldo and throw cars around while laughing maniacally.  Laughing maniacally, Kai.  When's the last time you did that?

6.  Regular scientists secretly yearn to be mad scientists.  Mad scientists secretly yearn to CONQUER THE WORLD WITH AN ARMY OF RADIOACTIVE GORILLAS!

People fear science, Kai.  But who's afraid of a mad scientist?  Fucking nobody.

Goodbye Hello Roger! It sounds like you had quite an experience - your nervous system is all realigned, huh? I want to hear more about your transcendence. Is it hard to leave behind your old identity? What made you want to get a new one? What does Doc Howl have to say about Rage?

I'm glad we didn't lose ya, man.  :)

In this case, it wasn't too hard to walk away from my identity, both IRL and online.  I was getting a little lazy and bored with the TGRR persona...I wasn't doing enough, and when your mind isn't big enough for the job, the answer is sometimes to just get a new one.

And rage is bad for you.  In hindsight, needing rage to act is a sign of laziness, and you typically miss your intended target...and I think we've had entirely enough collateral damage around here, don't you?

Lastly, as I said before, the Holy Man™ is useless in America, right now...perhaps Payne can get some use out of it.  What we need now is cartoon mad science, Cram.  Religion scares people, and it puts them off of your message.  But who is afraid of a "mad scientist" in this day and age?  Fucking nobody.  You're a joke, and everyone likes to hear jokes.

But wait until they get the punchline, Professor.

Dear Doktor Howl, I have a few logistical questions:

Who is the author of the original pieces attributed to TGRR? 

Do you prefer to keep the TGRR moniker on the scribd hardcopy?

Your previous two rants were written and recorded by TGRR; any future recordings will be written by TGRR and recited by Doktor Howl -- how would you like this to be credited on the album/website?

Leave any extant pieces with the original attribution, written or spoken.  No need to complicate things.

Interesting comment there:

Quote from: Michael Bibler
The real question here--and this is where I'd like to see the legal test case--is whether a member of "an organization subject to foreign control," like SHELL or TEXACO or ANY MULTINATIONAL CORPORATION, should have to register, too. If those corporations donate money to any political campaign, as the Supreme Court now says they can, aren't they interested in "controlling" the United States?

interestingly, the law makes exception for 'patriotic organization...

Interestingly enough, this would not have covered Patrick Henry or Samuel Adams.

It has been awhile since I came here.  But now, I realize why I left: there is no purpose.

You all talk of how sucky the world is, moaning about your lives and constantly re-itterating how terrible the world is.  You're trapped in a web of Pragmaticism, looking at the big concept of "The World" through a microscope which is your life.  You know, when I first came here, I was truly intrigued by what seemed to be a genius school of thought.

But the truth is: you're pointlessly hurting yourselves.  Popping an instinctive bubble your brain has made to make life wonderful-seeming.  But if your personal life is good, you'll find a problem in your country, or the world, or something.  Searching for another problem you can't fix just to remind everybody, you were right and Logic is all there is.

If Logic is truly all there is, you might as well kill yourself-- you'll find no solace in it, real or not.  My only real advice being: scrap everything but the pinealism and the recipes on here.  The Principia Discordia was written as a joke, as "how to escape whatever you want", not as a political dogma nor as a guide to living.  You can eat hot dogs on Fridays-- but the original concept Mal-2 was probably aiming for has been so far distorted, and it's modern-day replacement is rehashed so often on here, there's no discussion.  "This is the truth-- if you don't like it, suck it. " 
But-- Idealism and dreams are lost.  You  :horrormirth:abandon any hope for a better future, whining about how bad things are on this site which considerably few people know of.  So please.  Life is an abstract painting: stop looking for the goat you were told about.

We didn't actually ask for your advice, come to think of it.

Nobody caught the really funny part of that.
