"December 9, 1967 - Rock God Jim Morrison was arrested on stage."                                                                                                                                                       

This infamous incident happened during a concert at the New Haven Arena, New Haven, Connecticut. Backstage, prior to Jim's arrest, the arresting officer had sprayed him with mace. (Ask anyone who has ever been sprayed with mace, and they'll tell you that, among other things, it puts you in a foul mood.) And, while this was not Jim's most notorious arrest, it was a harbinger of things to come.

Principia Discussion / Have an Awesome Afflux!
« on: Yesterday at 02:11:49 am »
Yes, it's once again the 50th day of the season of The Aftermath (That's December 8th according to that old, outdated heathen calendar.), and time to celebrate Afflux!

Unfortunately, I'm not entirely sure how to properly celebrate this sacred Discordian Holyday. Now, according to the Discordian Wiki, "In America and some parts of Europe, Afflux is the Discordian equivilent of Christmas." (Someone didn't use spell check when they wrote that.) But, the due diligent search I did on led me to beleive that Moosemas now serves that purpose. And, in the Urban Dictionary it is written, "Moosemas is floating winter holiday meant as a non-religious substitute for Christmas, Hanukkah, and other seasonal holidays popularized by Orthodox Consumerism." (That reads like it was written by Boris Badenov.) Further, I also found the claim that "Moosemas was created in 1984 by The Coven of Our Lady of the Woods." And, on top of that, that heresy originated in of all places, Wisconsin!

Being a Discordian Fundamentalist, I obviously have a serious problem with Moosemas ... that I'm perfectly willing to ignore for the sake of celebrating yet another Holyday Holiday. But, that brings me back to Afflux: How is our sacred Discordian Holyday to be properly celebrated? I mean, I don't mind springing for all of the booze and food for Afflux, Christmas with the heathens, New Year's Eve with even more heathens, and Moosemas, but I'm not at all happy about getting nailed for three rounds of gift buying in a little over a month.

And, my research found that December 8th is also the following:

Bodhi Day - Appropriate for those of us who are Buddhists, but a downer to what I expect from our Afflux Holyday Holiday.   
National Crossword Solvers Day - No, thank you.
National Salesperson Day - Absolutely not, thank you!
National Brownie Day - Now this I can work with!
National Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day. - This does have possibilities, but still ...

Oh my, what's a Born Once Discordian to do.

"More than a meteorite: New clues about the demise of dinosaurs"

"McGill researchers challenge current understanding of dinosaur extinction by unearthing link between volcanic eruptions and climate change"

As per the article:

"What wiped out the dinosaurs? A meteorite plummeting to Earth is only part of the story, a new study suggests. Climate change triggered by massive volcanic eruptions may have ultimately set the stage for the dinosaur extinction, challenging the traditional narrative that a meteorite alone delivered the final blow to the ancient giants.

That’s according to a study published in Science Advances, co-authored by Don Baker, a professor in McGill University’s Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences.

The research team delved into volcanic eruptions of the Deccan Traps—a vast and rugged plateau in Western India formed by molten lava. Erupting a staggering one million cubic kilometres of rock, it may have played a key role in cooling the global climate around 65 million years ago."

There's a link to the detailed study within the article.

"Wisconsin fake electors acknowledge actions were used to overturn Biden election"

As per the article:

"MADISON — Ten Wisconsin Republicans who posed as electors for Donald Trump in 2020 despite the former president's election loss have acknowledged their actions were part of an attempt to overturn an election.

The statement was made Wednesday as part of a settlement in a lawsuit filed against the Republicans by Democratic electors for Joe Biden that sought $2.4 million in damages."

And, further in the article:

"In the statement released by the false Trump electors, the Republicans wrote they met in the Wisconsin State Capitol to sign paperwork falsely claiming to be electors to be "in compliance with requests from the Trump campaign and Republican Party of Wisconsin."

"The Elector Defendants took the foregoing action because they were told that it was necessary to preserve their electoral votes in the event a court challenge may later change the outcome of the election in Wisconsin. That document was then used as part of an attempt to improperly overturn the 2020 presidential election results," the Republicans wrote."

This lawsuit is ongoing. And, while some of the defendants are now off the hook, others notable ones are not.

"NASA and Boeing chase jet contrails with science of climate impact in doubt"

As per the article:

"Scientific debate is getting heated over what to do about airplane contrails — the wispy lines of water vapor you often see trailing behind a jet.

Those harmless-looking vapor trails sometimes spread out to form thin cirrus clouds. Environmental activists and nonprofits focused on climate change routinely assert contrails contribute more to global warming than the carbon dioxide emitted from jet engines.

The aviation industry, under pressure to do something, has stepped up research into contrails."

Not to worry though, I'm sure we The Illuminati are already all over this, and will make sure this little research project stays in its own lane. We The Illuminati, of course, would never dream of allowing mission creep to set in by allowing the boys at NASA and Boeing to investigate those barely noticable, completely harmless chemtrails.

"Santa Barbara County Man Sentenced to 6 Months in Prison for Obstructing Federal Probe into Plane Crash He Posted on YouTube"

As per the article:

"LOS ANGELES – A YouTuber pilot was sentenced today to six months in federal prison for obstructing a federal investigation by deliberately destroying the wreckage of an airplane that he intentionally crashed in Santa Barbara County to gain online views."

And, further along in the article:

"On November 24, 2021, Jacob took off in his airplane from Lompoc City Airport on a solo flight purportedly destined for Mammoth Lakes. Jacob did not intend to reach his destination, but instead planned to eject from his aircraft during the flight and video himself parachuting to the ground and his airplane as it descended and crashed.

Prior to taking off, Jacob mounted several video cameras on different parts of the airplane and equipped himself with a parachute, video camera and selfie stick. Approximately 35 minutes after taking off, while flying above the Los Padres National Forest near Santa Maria, Jacob ejected from the airplane and videoed himself parachuting to the ground.

Using the video camera mounted on the selfie stick and the video cameras he mounted on the airplane, Jacob was able to record the airplane as it descended and crashed into a dry brush area in Los Padres National Forest. After parachuting to the ground, Jacob hiked to the location of the wreck and recovered the data containing the video recording of his flight and the crash of the airplane."

And, still further along in the article:

"In the weeks following the plane crash, Jacob lied to investigators that he did not know the wreckage’s location. In fact, on December 10, 2021, Jacob and a friend flew by helicopter to the wreckage site. There, Jacob used straps to secure the wreckage, which the helicopter lifted and carried to Rancho Sisquoc in Santa Barbara County, where it was loaded onto a trailer attached to Jacob’s pickup truck."

It's incredible the lengths some people will go just to get views on YouTube.

Welcome to the forum.

I know next to nothing about the Official Discordian Document Numbering System. But, it appears you have put a great deal of effort into the development of your number generator. So, I am definitely interested in reading about the lore behind your system.

Hail Eris!

"First plasma fired up at world's largest fusion reactor"

"Japan’s JT-60SA tokamak will test technologies put to use in ITER"

As per the article:

"The long trek toward practical fusion energy passed a milestone last week when the world’s newest and largest fusion reactor fired up. Japan’s JT-60SA uses magnetic fields from superconducting coils to contain a blazingly hot cloud of ionized gas, or plasma, within a doughnut-shaped vacuum vessel, in hope of coaxing hydrogen nuclei to fuse and release energy. The four-story-high machine is designed to hold a plasma heated to 200 million degrees Celsius for about 100 seconds, far longer than previous large tokamaks."

And, as per the end of the article:

"By 2050, Japan also hopes to build DEMO, a proposed demonstration power plant that would provide a stepping stone from the research of JT-60SA and ITER to commercial fusion power. Shirai says he is well aware of the competition from alternative approaches to fusion energy, fueled by an influx of private money into the field. But with competition comes opportunities for collaborations among those with new ideas. “Having many people coming into this area is a very good thing,” Shirai says." 

Developing fusion power has been a long slog. But, it appears that some progress is being made.

High Weirdness / Re: Will NASA Diminish the UFO High Weirdness Factor?
« on: December 03, 2023, 09:43:32 pm »
To boil it down a bit, Daniel Sheehan is offering the intelligence community who oversees maintains the secrecy of this phenomenon the opportunity to have controlled disclosure and he is threatening to bring what he has in the way of evidence to the intelligence committee if they refuse to take him up on it.  This would be rather catastrophic for the gatekeepers.  Within this discourse he mentions that we are being visited by non-human entities, we have recovered several of their crafts, and we have captured and possibly interrogated live aliens.  He states that they are observing us and attempting to warn us that we are polluting and destroying the life sustaining potential of our world.  <---Nutshell.

Thanks for the synopsis.

Beep Boop.  Are we Disclosed Yet?

I don't have time right now to watch a video that's almost two (2) hours long. But, the short segment I did watch gave me the impression that the people making the video do not believe the UFO High Weirdness Factor is in any way being diminished.

So, I did a quick search and found this current article:

"Is Congress Suppressing UAP Disclosures? What To Know"

As per the article:

"The Congressional Record for this legislation does not show that either Turner or Rogers have voted on or yet led efforts to dismiss either Schumer's amendment or sections of it such as the presidential-approved panel

As it stands, the Schumer amendment within the National Defense Authorization Act has passed the Senate. The House has now voted for the NDAA bill to be debated among conference committees. Changes may be put forward to alter the meaning of Schumer's amendment but there is no verifiable evidence yet to suggest this will happen. Newsweek has contacted Chuck Schumer's representatives via email for comment."

So, to answer your question: No.
