Or Kill Me / It's Simple Really...
« on: February 10, 2009, 06:36:11 pm »
There seems to be a constant, throbbing, ongoing debate about "violence in the media" and how horrible it is for our children. How it's having all these negative effects on them, how SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE! in the form of legislation, v chips, new intricate technology that children can circumvent, new complex rating systems, and all out ban on anything interesting on tv. Try 500 channels of CSpan 24 hours a day! I wonder if that would actually make congress less stupid? If everyone watched their every word on television... but I digress.

People seem to have these huge debates about the best course of action for this problem we have with violence on tv. Because historically speaking, children have never, ever, ever witnessed wholesale violence, and violence has never been glorified or condoned in the past. This day and age is fraught with all kinds of new evils never experienced by humanity before! *cough* but seeing as our children are being harmed by television violence, obviously something needs to be done.

Well, through studying that debate, I have come up with a novel way of dealing with childhood exposure to violent media programs, news, crooked politicians, unfunny comedians, absurdist cartoons.... my solution would probably also help with childhood obesity to an extent, if implemented well.

Ready for it folks? It's called TURN OFF THE FUCKING TV!!!

Throw it in a locked closet if you must. throw it away even! buy some books, let your kids go outside and play, let your kids run around inside. Let them be obnoxious and scream and be add and be weird and... stop expecting kids to be adults, or docile sheep parked in front of the boob tube learning from others to be foul, violent, and unfunny. for fuck's sake, hire a fucking babysitter if you can't be fucked to pay attention to your own offspring.

But if you are worried about the effects of tv violence on your kid, or on yourself, Don't call your congressman, don't write a letter to the tv station, don't send an email to the CEO, don't start a lobby with your friends... Just turn the damn thing off and shut up already!!!

Discordian Recipes / crazy curry type stuff!!

so, i had chicken, random fingerling potatoes (there are freaking PURPLE ones! like, vibrant pUrple!! frightening!!!), a can of straw mushrooms, a can of coconut milk, a bag of frozen collard greens and 4 tomatoes.

I also had sesame oil, sriracha sauce, some sort of curry powder, lemongrass, plum sauce, and rice vinegar.

It is all stewing now. It smells good. Let's see how it tastes.

If I had a camera I would post those freaky potatoes. they are very purple.

coconut milk (i use canned, comes out well)
frozen raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, peaches, mangoes or a combination (with the coconut milk, I actually like raspberries and/or mangoes the best)

sometimes I use yogurt instead of coconut milk. occasionally I make yogurt lassi:

a bit of lime juice
a few pinches of cumin powder
a bit of salt


Techmology and Scientism / Expanding Earth?
« on: February 08, 2009, 05:25:34 pm »
ITT you are invited to peruse evidence brought together by some out-of-the-box thinking folks who have developed a theory base on an expanding earth rather than one which has always been its current size, and which has been formed by subduction of tectonic plates.

An interesting youtube video on the subject:

and a webpage which better explains the theory in writing:

Discordian Recipes / how to cook an egg

Eggs are certainly tasty fare. And when cooked right, they make wonderful music, as noted in the comments.

That was a big sound for an egg
