Title: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
Post by: The Good Reverend Roger on February 22, 2017, 02:51:48 am
Hello.  Assuming you're not a google-spider thing or a wrathful ex-member seeking your glorious revenge, there are a few things you need to know, and a few things we need to know.  I'll start with what we need to know:

1.  Who the hell are you, and how did you find this place?  You're a cop, right?  Yeah you are.  Or you're wearing a wire.  I can smell that shit, and you are most definitely some kind of spy for government agencies that never heard of us and wouldn't care if they did.  Fess up.

2.  Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker?  You're just asking for it, you know.

3.  Do you know any good recipes?  Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.

Now, what you need to know:

1.  We've read the Principia Discordia (and we don't advise it to anyone).  We have all seen every Monty Python movie ever made.  Quoting either one gets you The Punishmentô.  Or at least gets you ignored.

2.  We are a bundle of bad wiring, so don't try to be the weirdest person in the room your first time out.  Absurdism only works if it's funny, and word salad isn't funny.

3.  Nobody here believes that "all opinions are of equal value", so be warned: If you're spouting alt-right shit or the dogma of lesser religions, you're going to get laughed at. 

4.  We only have 6 rules that get you banned.  Learn them.

5.  If you want to pimp your music or your art or anything like that, please restrict it to the subforum "Bring & Brag".  If that's all you're here to do, shove off.

6.  Our board's owner ("The Mgt") left in disgust recently.  That should tell you what you're in for.  The board is currently run by an Irish guy who doesn't give a shit about any of us.  He just sits in a drafty castle in Ireland somewhere, eating corned beef and listening to The Bay City Rollers on Pandora.  He doesn't care if we live or die. 

7.  There are two admins and one moderator that are here on a semi-regular basis...Myself, Cain, and LMNO.  We don't care if you're being trolled or whatnot, we only care about the 6 bannable offenses.  Again, learn them.  If someone's giving you grief, use the ignore function.  If one of the admins is that person, you can't ignore us, so just scroll on by.

All that being said, go ahead and introduce yourself.  People will say "Hi, new guy!", because we've lost our mojo and can't bring ourselves to shit on noobs like back in the day.  We apologize for this, and hope you are not too disappointed.

For the love of all that's holy, do NOT send a recipie to Roger.

I'm not sure if you've ever seen air spontaneously combust. Which means you haven't seen Roger try to make an ego waffle.

This is an exaggeration brought on by a sequence of bizarre events that no reasonable person could have possibly foreseen.

Grilled cheese isn't even flammable for fuck's sake.  I know this because I tried to repeat the incident using a map gas torch, and it just shriveled up.

I can't find the six banable offenses.

I'm Nazi Puncher, hello again. I came here because I read that chaos magic and Discorians were behind the alt-right and wanted to punch them but then it turns out you guys hate them as much as I do. So now we can team up and be a powerful NAZI PUNCHING FIGHTING FORCE

I don't worship anything, I was told that I am now an honorary Discordian by coming here. I've been doing a lot of reading on it the past couple of days though, seems like it's all about restoration of balance, which I agree with. Things are getting unbalanced and we need to restore it

recipe: 1 tablespoon of my fist
a dash of Nazis (republicans as substitute)
mix in a bowl
punch until STFU

I take issue with this. Republican != Nazi or even just plain garden variety racist.

Who the hell am I? Who the hell are you and how did this ubiquitous leaping cockroach of a religion manifest from the anals (yes) of my mind into someone else's and onto paper? I feel as if I've been living my life knowing all these truths intuitively and come by this site and the things that entails the same way. That's not to say I ever really listen to that intuition that has done naught but guide me true when indulged. With every reason and every obvious benefit, it still looms oppressive that I stick to what I know rather than what I KNOW.

Which brings me to why I'm here, ultimately: Nothing seems real anymore. Sure. A common lament among the dreamy-eyed, lazy-ass ponderers with no actionable experience from which to draw that conclusion. So, too, is it nonetheless true that, in the course of my day-to-day, I pour untold amounts of energy into the world around me- The people that populate it for me; with me; against me; at my side, behind, and before me- and feel a right Quixote* when they look at me like I'm an idiot for caring about their wellbeing, happiness, and soul when they don't have time for that.

Which pisses me off like nothing else when I didn't have to bother to take the time in the first place. So why bother?

Which seems like an answer to the question in its own right, but what the fuck. I didn't care like this at one point in my life; had never felt the unyielding, burning energy of true and unconditional love. Never asked to. Now I've got these feelings and shit and no one gives me nothing but grief for them.

I don't want to leave those I care for behind, but what shall I do when they wont come with me where I'm needed? Neither can I hate them, for they are only living to their nature.

Also, I can cook. Like I was born to. Should I start a thread for simple recipes and dumb cooking questions? I'm a big user of 'scratch' methods, so be prepared to do the work to get the food just like the hunter gather-ers of old.

If anyone is interested, I also know a bunch of odd-and-end stupid human tricks and ultimately useless but intriguing knowledge that may or may not be true, and have a few unmarketable skills for curio.

Hi, Y'all. My name is Tom. Probably.

Morrissey is the crown prince of sad.  He teaches us that deaf/mute girls are terrible at telling you that a disaster is occurring, and that when you get famous, all your old friends hate you for buying new tee shirts.  Morrissey fans are best known for hugging their legs and biting their knees in the shower, over a girl that dumped them rather than learn their name, or binge-eating an entire pizza and then throwing it up on their man-boobs in the bath tub, while they squeeze their  testicles until they remember that they are worthless and do not deserve love.

Well... at least they get a bath in every now and then. Wait, is the tub empty before they get in? Because partially digested pizza is NOT a substitute for soap and I may have presumed too much.

Is this an MRA thing or some other sort of mental disease?

Making assumptions before replying to a genuine desire to speak with like minded people is a sure way to never speak with a like minds person again. I hardly fit the bill of a maudlin koan. I'm seeking answers and ideas and people that aren't still asleep.

I didn't speak my piece because it's an original story of pain and woe. Because I'm fragile and need validation. Because I need someone to whine with me. I spoke my piece because it was asked of me. "Why am I here?" I told you. I'm sorry you don't like it, but I had kinda hoped that it would resonate with someone who wanted to talk about ANYTHING else.

Nothing seems real. I've lost teeth to objects aimed at my face. Nobody ever learns. It's like the hardest part of the body. You're more likely to hurt your hand than you are to hit the 2 square inches of valid target area on the head.

Pain is just another illusion that disappears as you embrace it. Just like fear. It's motivation to run, fight, or die like a little bitch. But the really important bit? It's a lesson. If you don't die from it. The lesson you learn, however, doesn't teach you that anything is actually really real. It just shows you that the unknown can hurt from time to time. That you should probably not lead with your head. Or at least raise your hands like you care to put up a fight.

Pain shows you how to fight. Not why. Not ever why. Because there is only ever another type of pain to embrace.

My desire to find something real isn't for me. It's for my children and my wife that I care about. Its for all the love I now hold for those in this world that cant see beyond what's put in front of them.

I'm trying to be happy so that I can show them how. It would appear that I've come to the wrong place, but I cant quietly accept that the only people I've found in the world with a modicum of sense would simply act like everyone else without. So take this as you will and delete what you want. I'm done.

I've never tried hugging the barstool after it was thrown.

You'll find plenty of pain here. There's happiness, too, but ya gotta take a deep breath and look for it. Which, really, isn't so different from life outside this site.

There are also some bits and pieces here that are a bit different from the world at large. In my opinion, those differences are vital, challenging, and generally life-affirming. Your mileage may vary.

In any case, welcome!

If you'll entertain a bit of unsolicited advice, you may want to review your word choice.  "I'm done", "nothing is real", "pain and woe", "whine with me", etc.

Underneath that appears to be a request to discuss why compassion should be defended as a good thing, but it's buried in a lot of other stuff.

Also, we have a cooking section.  You should check it out.

What is meant, for clarity, by the embracing of pain: Stare at it. Make it all you can see. All you can feel. All you know. And it disappears. Simply becomes a fact and has no control over your decisions farther than the desire to move around it. It becomes a part of you as you absorb the pain and the lesson it brings. There is no little mental trick that can block out pain. There isn't some ancient Chinese secret to pain relief and there isn't a pill. It's only ever this. Knowledge of how to proceed now that the pain is known.

It is kind of like hugging the barstool, now that I think about it. Thank you. I'ma teach my students that as a conceptual aid.

Thank you. Genuinely.

I'm not here to add to the pain. Only to understand it. Maybe make it a little weirder.

--

The rambling wasn't a request. It was just a statement. To show where I'm at and who I am in an abstract and metaphysical sort of way. I agree that the words carry connotations that would lead you to ask such questions, but such is the nature of words.

I agree that I struggle with this ideal in a world that rejects it by and large, but there is no doubt in my mind that compassion is one of the few worthy emotions in this respect. It simply hurts that it leads me to so many walls. The pain I'm looking to understand, if you will.

I'm sorry that I came off like a whiny twit at first. In my defense, I got some ditch smoke last night.

This sounds like a form of Buddhism, but with a whiff of masochism.

Not a negative criticism, just getting a feel for the concept.

Been a martial artist all my life and I looked for those techniques everywhere. Never found any that worked. Maybe I didn't believe hard enough. Then, I was put in a few positions to do nothing but feel the Pain. We talked. He's not such a bad guy. He's been through some shit. Taught me some cool things.

Bit of an amorphous phrase, that. The observation is somewhat connected to this feeling, yes, but is informed by it rather than predicated. In example: Pain should be real. A marker. Something that ties us inextricably to the world of the material. It's how you know that you're dreaming. Pinch yourself, is what we say. Yet, pain, too, can be subjected to enough scrutiny that it ceases to affect us physically.

It's more of a generalization. Nothing seems real *enough* for tradition. The satisfaction of innate human biology to make what seems good and right or feels good and right a constant thing. Tradition. For our kids.

The 80's and 90's taught us that nothing matters and that everything should be treated with skepticism or sarcasm. It's in all the angry and disenfranchised music. It's in all the shows. Married With Children takes an archetype and makes a parody of it. Sure, it's understood as a parody, but how long before people forget what parody means because the meme of that worldview (Living a parody based upon an appreciation of irony that went a little too far and dug some roots in your greater perceptions) made it funny to have experiences that mirror the TV. You become the popular one at the water cooler if you can regail your workmates with stories of your life and progeny that 'beat all I've ever seen.'

About 10-15 years, it seems. In many cases, instantly.

Small part of a larger puzzle, yes, and some things do seem more real and worthy than others. But as I consider the origin of things more, they seem less so. Imposed. Just like the pain that you can see through if you try.

Does that help?

Well, then.  I suggest you go to the downloads section and get a copy of the BIP, read it, and then examine that statement.  I mean, it's kind of arrogant - and wildly inaccurate - to assume that you and a few others are the only conscious beings in a world full of sheep.  Yeah, that's the kind of delusion that makes you feel sorta better about yourself and the world around you, but it's also basing your worldview on a false premise...And that can lead to all manner of hilarity when extended.

Okay, but... Nigel might have a more accurate explanation, but pain is a stimulation of a category of nerve cells, often in response to some form of damage.  It sounds like you've learned how to ignore that, rather than make it "go away" or "not exist".

That sounds quite a lot like weaponized denialism.

Hey there, new guy!

I've been off Nigeling the shit out of things for a few days, but I'm looking forward to getting to know you. Many of us here cook, so please, jump on into an existing cooking thread, or feel free to start your own!

#1 tip I can give you is, try not to confuse any of us for any of the others of us. We are an "us" only loosely speaking (some more so than others), and often disagree with each other.

Most of us have a specialty of some sort. If you want to know stuff about brains, I'm your man. I have also been known to be an obnoxious, pedantic know-it-all about my area of interest, so if you just wanna think about stuff in a wibbly-wobbly unscientific armchairy sort of way, tell me and I'll shut up.

Hello new person. Generally I limit my interaction with these introductory threads to vacant snark, and really I have bother of much value to add to your various existential perplexions. However, I would add in this case an expression of my sense that such a command of the English language should not be wasted on poking around at this "imposed" reality looking for authenticity.

You could write novels with an ability like yours, or at least stuffy short stories, and there's nothing quite as real in this world as a whole world outside of it invented by the pen of a gifted writer. We humans decide for ourselves what is "real" anyway, often without much evidence to go on, and being consciously aware of that fact subtracts nothing from it. Just try to minimize the despondent solipsism. It's bad for the suspension of disbelief.

Hi! I'm Chucklemaster. I posted here maybe 300 (holy crap that's too many) or so times and then left for a year or so.
Once upon a time I thought I liked Discordia, but then I actually thought about it and discovered I was not at all the person I wanted to be, so I changed. Still a discordian(if you want to use labels), just channeling my pretension into other things now.
These days I'm playing RPGs and such with strangers and pals, going to punk shows and other adventures, writing poetry and short stories, and studying the weird.
I'm not gonna post any contact details here because of paranoia but if you PM me I'll probably give you usernames you can find me at. Please name specific sites and why, though.

Hey, I'm Qlip, I don't consider myself a Discordian, but I thought I'd hang out here for a bit. What lead me to this particular forum was that I made a friend through another friend, she was pretty cute and into Chaos Magick. I don't really truck with that, I myself am a lifelong Qabbalist, kind of on par with how I'm a guitarist, I can play Blackbird and the intro to Stairway to Heaven and that's all. So I stalked her for a bit on the social media, reading her reposted magick memes, all the while I got on with my life. I went on a half-year LSD trip, went clear, turned on to prog-folk, fell in love, and moved to the forest in Northern California.

Then she reposted a little excerpt called A ZEN STORY by somebody who billed himself The Count of Five Headmaster, Camp Meeker Cabal. I had just checked out a rental in Camp Meeker a few months ago. Looking more into the author of that piece, Camden Benares, it turns out he was the Postmaster of the little town I did end up in. Unfortunately he wasn't there when I signed up for my P.O. Box.  But, I did find a hobo mark on the post office fence post indicating this forum gave free handouts if you told a story.  Hi.

Hey new guy!
Woah! I had no idea what the Camp Meeker Cabal referred to - he was the postmaster for your town? that's crazy. I'm a big fan of Camden's book, Zen Without Zen Masters. If you dig up any other local Count of Fives stories, I would be dying to hear them.


There used to be a little qaballah contingent on this board - that cabal was nicknamed SSOOKN, but I can't recall what that stood for. LMNO, you must remember. This guy Mangrove (where IS mangrove, anyway??) actually taught me a bunch about Qaballah, and pointed me at the book Chicken Soup Qaballah, which seemed like a good introduction. ("It's all in your head, you just have no idea how big your head is." -- that line really sticks with me)


The board is a bit slow these days, but if you be pro-active and post some topics you want to discuss, people are sure to jump in. Anyway, welcome!

I'm a musician/composer, writer, artist, occultist, comparative religion guy, film addict, screenplay/theatre guy, absurdist/surrealist, R.A.W. fan (and many more unimportant things that remain important), with an ongoing fascination with the Principia Discordia sacred text handed down to us by God's landlord himself!  :wink:

My signature probably plays into my interest in Kabbalah and Synchronicity too, lol.




The 23 Enigma was and is and will ever be a mindfuck of massive proportions. As discordians, do we still continue this tradition?

Worked with different magicians & Vodou folk over the years. Perform old blues and other noise. Sometimes perform as a magician & theatrical mind-reader.

1) Last fall when looking for post-modern and post-humanist books to read I found PD, the book, on a Wikipedia page for parody/post-modern religions. I started reading it, thought it was funny, but then stopped and moved on to a different pdf. Later I audiobook'd the Illuminatus! Trilogy and was provoked by the logogram/biogram theory of action. After finishing the trilogy, I looked for further reading on the subject finding only one journal article titled 'Dissipating the Logogram'. It was a good read, but I wasn't satisfied with his resolution... ended up on PD, the forum, several times in my search. Too many times and I am here.

2) From what I've read, the other Greek Gods weren't the best judges of character. But yeah, I'm askin' for it.

3) I cook practically, might add some recipes there but they aren't fancy. Here's an easy one for now.

0. If this is your first time working with pasta and you need extra luck, try throwing a pinch of salt over your shoulder into the pot. If not, skip this step.

1. Make spaghetti. From scratch is cheaper but box works just as well. The key to knowing when the spaghetti is ready is a sudden change in the smell of the room. After the smell changes, let it cook a bit longer. If you can't smell the difference yet, do a flexibility test of the pasta and try it every now and then. It is essential the spaghetti gets a lot of water in it for this recipe. Also, I don't think it is important to boil the water before putting the spaghetti in as long as it is kinda hot.

2. Drain the spaghetti. While draining it is easy, if you mess up you can end up with sink-spaghetti a different, less desirable recipe. Also, it is important to pour it out of the pot when you drain it, so it gets airtime.

3. Here is the twist. Then freeze the amount of spaghetti you will eat. The goal is not to freeze it thoroughly, but to get a soft-freeze. Frozen spaghetti, as long as it is malleable, is very refreshing and enables many more pairings rather than just tomatoes and cheese. I recommend pickles in my frozen spaghetti, but I wouldn't eat pickles in hot spaghetti. Alternatively, frozen spaghetti can be a straight dessert as an ice cream substitute if paired with something sweet. Lastly, semi-frozen spaghetti is not as messy. Because it does not slip around and can be bitten into rather than slurped, frozen spaghetti is a better option for fancier meals, I'd imagine. I freeze spaghetti practically, not fancily, so I wouldn't know on that last pro.

 I'm Iz, I'm an art student, a revolt-over-reform politics nerd, and I'm vaguely intimidated by your line of questioning. How did you know???

 I used to tell people I was a Hellenic Pagan when I lived under a rock and hadn't met a lot of those, but they're pretty not nicetm a lot of the time and so I've kinda just... veered off from that. That's all the pertinent stuff, at the moment anyway.

2.  Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker?  You're just asking for it, you know.

I always liked the underworld gods more as a whole. They weren't bail-out gods or saviors or anything like that. In Ancient Greece people would avoid even saying their name to avoid getting their attention. Eris is the Goddess of Discord and Strife and such, and I can relate to that. I've been called a "Sower of Strife" by a few religious types in my home town because I would argue with them, and I never saw how that was a bad thing. So to worship the Goddess of Strife seemed... suiting.
also I liked the book I'm not supposed to quote

3.  Do you know any good recipes?  Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.

I know a lot of recipes for Mexican food if that's what you're into.

Hello staktere! Welcome to PD. If you like that Oldschool Religion, you'll like this place -- but only because we are an ancient forum community. We've been around since early pagan times, except that I mean the early 2000s.

I used to tell people I was a Hellenic Pagan when I lived under a rock and hadn't met a lot of those, but they're pretty not nicetm a lot of the time and so I've kinda just... veered off from that. That's all the pertinent stuff, at the moment anyway.

Pagan Reconstructionists are a weird bunch. I could never dig about them is their forgiveness for classical-world values. The ancient world was cool in some ways, but WHACK AS FUCK in other ways.

Hellenic Reconstructionists are weird and not in a good way.  And I say that as someone who did two years of Classical Studies.

But at least they're not Nordic pagans. That stuff is just cringeworthy, even when it isn't fantastically racist.

Honestly, this place is very labyrinthine and I'm kinda intimidated by the whole forum, so I'll go get a few recipes from my mom and buy my way into the hearts of the PD masses with food.

And yeah, I like the myth, mostly, but a lot of it just outright unpleasant. I may be working on a vastly cynical and licentious myth-reworking because I somehow think I'm qualified to dismantle the Hellenic afterlife.

I can work with that.  Also, the grenade turned out to be a light socket, so there's that.  Of course, this distinction took two hours to make, so I got a fair amount of reading done while the other schmucks did the hard work.

however, after the unfortunate discovery of the possibility of the facebook gods watching me fap, i decided to leave facebook... so i spent the next two or so years devizing plans on taking over the world and of course shutting down facebook... since then i have given up on defeating facebook since now others are starting to do the same...

*nods, but my new noble goal is to start a new epoch of classical music specifically called The Capeditiean Epoch. *nods,

I also happen to be the gnosis goddess of art and creativity. which my primary name is Eris Sophia Capeditiea. :3 whether or not i am that Eris is fully up to you, although i don't mind either way. :D Just don't send me popcorn in the mail on a hot summer day. :O i have a horrible story of eating popcorn which may be told later in detail.

My primary name is E Pluribus Unum, which is of course a filthy lie.  It's more like E Pluribus Fundum.

Anyway, welcome to the board.  A word, though:  Being zany is fine, but you might consider keeping it to the zany threads.

1.  Who the hell are you, and how did you find this place?
Hi.  I'm a practitioner of applied and practical magic, or, in more common parlance, something like an electronic engineer.  In the interests of not getting sued by The Association, I had best clarify that I'm not a Licensed Professional.  I don't need it for my job, I can't be bothered to go through the paperwork, and it's not like my screwups are going to make people lose body parts.  Admittedly, using my company's "products" may contribute to stress-related cardiovascular disease and/or hair loss, but that's all on you.  You need to mellow out, or go with one of our competitors instead.

Anyway, I spend a lot of time trying to use math to extract signal from noise.  I found this place by following the noise.

Quote
You're a cop, right?  Yeah you are.  Or you're wearing a wire.  I can smell that shit,
*sniff*  Oh, that.  That's not me.  A marketing guy walked by the HVAC intake, earlier.

Quote
2.  Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker?  You're just asking for it, you know.
What makes you think I joined up?  I never said I joined up.  I'm not the joining-up type.

I joined up because, as a militant agnostic, I'm down with any religion that doesn't make truth claims, and I've always wanted to belong to a doomsday cult.

Quote
3.  Do you know any good recipes?  Because we have a section for that, and I'm trying to learn to cook.
Sure.

Take 2 parts sulfur, 3 parts charcoal, and 15 parts saltpeter, measured by weight.  Grind ingredients to a fine powder, and mix thoroughly.  Add nutmeg and cinnamon to taste.  Flambť in kirschwasser.

That's cool.

I tried doing some witchcraft a couple weeks back, but I had trouble getting the wires to stay in place, burned my finger on the soldering iron, and then the plastic started to melt (thermal conductivity is a bitch).  Clearly, not everything is designed with solderability in mind.

So I sat back and thought about what I really wanted, and ended up going to Home Despot to buy a 250V wall socket, plug, and (almost, but not quite) matching wall plate.  It was unsatisfying and inelegant, like swatting a mosquito with a used pineapple, but it got the job done.

I keep reading about PD and it kept coming to my attention over and over again, especially as I was moving through literature about consciousness, Leary and Wilson and the like. Well holy shit guys, after some curious web searching, I found you. You seem like some properly open folks here.

But can you weaponize storms with them? Sort of how building nuclear reactors everywhere makes schorched earth tactic much more effortless to pull off or dams are just a flood waiting to happen.

I'm pretty sure fuckushima accident was just all waveplants plugged in backwards in a right sequence+underwater nuke to throw off seismographs.

I forgot to leave my face at the door, should I take it off? I don't even know if I can take it off, the experience would probably make me a whole another person.

Hello.

I have returned.

Why? I don't know... Nostalgia? Possibly a masochist? Catching up on all those things I meant to write? 

Probably not the latter tbh, I am very busy and also extraordinarily lazy, so...

I don't know some of you, some of you know me but not the other way around, I hate a handful of you, I consider a minority of you to be good friends, and it's a near certainty that some of you, known or not, wish me dead. I'm cool with it.

Anyway, we'll see if I can keep up on this. It's been a while since I've been active on any forum, so don't get mad if this turns out to be the only thing I post.

In either case lolerisfnord555pinealgland23applezhotdogbunsfucky ou

STILL PUNK AS FUCK.

But how did you know?

Either way, I assume you'll preserve my anonymity. For now, at least. Let these fuckers figure it out at their own pace.

There's a topical ointment for that I think.

Been looking around a bit on your side after suffering through the whole black iron prison stuff, and I noticed that you actually have a forum. So I thought, why not say hello. It's the polite thing to do. Maybe I'll even stay around, might be a welcome change from being the only discordian member on a religious forum.

I'm a thirty-something german and spend most of my day hammering little plastic buttons with letters and numbers on it, both for fun and profit. I've been interested in the discordian religion for a few years, at least since I joined up, and I actually have no idea how that started.

As for recipies, nothing you can't find on google. Only in german, though, so good luck with that.

Hi newcomer!

Once upon a time there was a welcoming committee here, but they were ritualistically drowned in pig fat and the whole soup stirred into a tub of bromine, so now I wear their old clothes and do their old job for laughs on Tuesdays.

Pool is on the roof, and while not /everyone/ who dwells here is basically horrible, rotten and evil, there are some ďbad applesĒ in the bunch.

In particular, beware Professor Cramulus if he tries to sell you a belief system, Dok Howl if he tries to sell you unlicensed back alley surgery, and Q. G. Pennyworth if she tries to sell you a ďfun family outingĒ.

It is true that fun will be involved and that you will go out with your family, but these are almost entirely unrelated phenomena, and the going out tends to be irreversible.

And whatever you do, be sure to enjoy yourself.

Well Good Afternoon,

I've probably come too late, or just on time.

-><- Q.  1. Who the hell are you, and how did you find this place?  You're a cop, right?  Yeah you are.  Or you're wearing a wire.  I can smell that shit, and you are most definitely some kind of spy for government agencies that never heard of us and wouldn't care if they did.  Fess up.

A: No, I'll answer the rest right below in answer #2

-><- Q.  2. Why on Earth would you join a religion that worships a Greek God...And not just ANY Greek God, but the one all the OTHER Greek Gods thought was a troublemaker?  You're just asking for it, you know.

A: I've not asked for anything, It's too much. I'm finding this tradition RIGHT as I am about to implement my own silly operations. I've had years of suffering, hope, and forest dwelling, and I am leaving. That snapped well,  but I am confused, in some way(I don't know what it is; if I did I wouldn't be typing it this way). I've narrowly stopped myself from doing destructive things in the name of righteousness. Eris clearly has something planned through me, the dam seems to be breaking. I think, perhaps I am here to learn what the river couldn't teach me. (Metaphor, but also the river has been my teacher)

I tried very hard to have an original thought in introducing myself, but found the effort taxing. In any case, my proper name is Felix. I stumbled upon Discordianism when I was... 16? I think? I was caught up in the typical high school attempts to be interesting and stumbled into an unrelated cult, but in researching things for that unfortunate project I found the PD and determined I liked it a lot.

I'm a Greek Polytheist proper, but I'm kind of... bad at it? I make pretty good honey cakes though, if the occasion calls for it. I smeared spaghetti sauce on my face once as an offering.

I've been lurking on the board for a while, and may continue to just do that. I figured if I was gonna be here, you might as well know who it was sniffing their way through your political commentary and ideological drubbings. It only took me so long because I'm an idiot and didn't realize the aforementioned rules were listed delicately within the registration agreement.

I'm not sure I'm clever enough to overcome my intimidation, but understand nothing in this world makes me laugh as hard as this forum. Thanks.

Hmm. You seem fine. Stick around, say something once in awhile. Something about your writing style tells me you have the right mental damage to keep up, and I like to have new faces around.

I'm pretty sure it isn't contagious. Or... if it is, I have some explaining to do to my boyfriend. I may have to see a doctor about that.

Post by: altered on October 07, 2019, 03:04:45 am
Itís definitely contagious, but thereís certainly a difference between primary infection and secondary infection as well. Only a primary infection ďspreads the wordĒ, secondary infections provide limited immunity at the cost of Knowing Too Much. If the boyfriend doesnít hoot, gibber, or read off ďfunny legal factsĒ to people, heís fine.

However! If he does do those things, we recommend a portable incinerator and a 48 hour quarantine of the entire site. Anyone exposed to ďfunny legal factsĒ needs to be confined for up to one week to make sure they arenít showing symptoms.

A final warning. Attempts to escape to Massachusetts must be stopped at all costs: the camps of afflicted individuals at Harvard have reached critical mass already, you canít throw a rock without hitting someone talking about a court date while wearing a bad suit. Take precautions, weíve done all we can on our end.

I thought you meant the existential dread. I was afraid I would have to act like I was in church and my depressive episodes were possession again.

Fret ye not! I'm immune to Funny Legal Facts Syndrome. I don't find laws funny, I find them wonderfully exploitable. At least, when they aren't benefitting the bourgeoisie. Then it's just tragic, and I have to drink copious amounts of milk to overcome my sorrow.
Title: Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party

Milk is no good for overcoming sorrow. Try the blood of your enemies, itís a purer high and has no side effects*.

* In this case, addiction is a desired effect, not a side effect.

My psychiatrist had suggested I drink milk for my vitamin D intake as opposed to staying in the abusive relationship I had with sun worship. Does blood have the same effect or will I find myself careening into co-dependency again?
Title: Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
Post by: altered on October 07, 2019, 04:02:32 am
Definitely the co-dependency thing, but again, this is entirely a desired effect. In fact, in the blood, all things are desirable effects. The blood gives us eyes to see.

Please see your local blood minister for advice on how to proceed, and beware the old blood (itís yucky and can make you sick).

I am unsure if there is a blood minister in my area. Blood is notoriously difficult to store in the Arizona heat. Unless you cook it or freeze it... but at that point, I feel it's cheating. Can one get it fresh from the nouveau riche, or must it be allocated through official channels?
Title: Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
Post by: altered on October 07, 2019, 04:26:39 am
Official channels offer the safest methods of blood acquisition, but a sufficiently devoted individual may get it on their own. In which case the church is not legally responsible for blood-drunkenness, head explosions, or vomiting undigested blood in public and making everyone go ďewwwwwwwĒ.

However, I didnít realize you were in Arizona. If youíre close enough to the Tucson Total Exclusion Zone, we do not recommend blood rites, as they pose a risk of vision into the true nature of the cosmos. If youíre within the exclusion zone, blood use is strictly prohibited under penalty of time vortices.

Post by: Utmost Roast Beef on October 07, 2019, 04:52:18 am
I don't live close to the Tucson Total Exclusion Zone, though I do travel there on occasion. Are the effects of blood consumption long-lasting, or will my travels into the Tucson Abyss cause issues if there is residual blood still in my system? I may finish out my degree at UofA and I'd hate to cause temporal misalignment due to premature blood consumption.
Title: Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
Post by: altered on October 07, 2019, 04:57:24 am
If you travel INTO the Exclusion Zone, and have in fact SEEN the Abyss, itís too late. Youíre already at least three milli-Everetts removed from the rest of the timeline and blood use of any variety can cause complications.

Repeated passage into the Exclusion Zone causes greater reality misalignment. Beyond one centi-Everett of removal, blood use results in immediate temporal vortex generation, and (if blood use is not immediately halted) eventually quantum ejection.

The Croatian district isn't even the problem.  The problem is the 6th ave/6th street police precinct building, which folded right out of visible existence.  All the cops inside at the time were taken with it, and they went bad.  I don't mean bad like "crooked", because it in fact made them incorruptible.  No, I mean bad as in "they will arrest you for sideways crimes, like having a middle name or being full of blood."  Then you are taken in for interrogation.  You are of course never seen again, except possibly as a 2-D anti-wrong crime advertisement on side of the Alvernon to Pennington bus.

The Croatian district, on the other hand, just gives off a whiff of boiled garlic on the missing part of Dodge Blvd.  Plus some random beatings at Ferguson's Plumbing Supply, which is the closest thing to the district.

She taught me a wonderful Croatian dessert, which (when I made it) was declared ďweirdĒ and ďidkĒ by my then-roommates. They were, of course, cowards, and I loved every second of that dessert.

(I made it correctly too, the recipe called for adding water to the already baked cake and refrigerating it. Then-roommates determined it was ďtoo moistĒ, maybe ďunderbakedĒ.)

Found this board roundabout a year ago after klicking on a link to pd.com on an Infamous Chaos Magick Order's website and immediatley got fixed. Shortly after that I found a discordian forum in my mother tounge, so I didn't bother coming back here, as those filthy germans managed to fulfil most of my spiritual, emotional and material needs. Up until now.
I came back here to seek for permission to use some of your texts and maybe a little support in developing my FYM23DMT (https://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php/topic,38874.0.html) and maybe some other shit Eris has planned for me in the future.

Iím unreasonably nervous about this but Iím unreasonably nervous about everything anyway so fuck it; I discovered these forums specifically a few years ago and dipped in lurking like a hedge dweller at various times since about 2010 but never joined the forum. From what I've read itís at once hilarious and frightful, well done!

Having first discovered Discordia vaguely through The KLF as a teenager without really understanding what it was all about, then again reading Illuminatus! at college whilst I was supposed to be reading other things, Iíve found it curious that Iíve been drawn to this glorious nonsense time and again, usually at times of personal, local or global crisis, so here I am again. I still don't really understand what it's all about.

I have mostly all my own teeth (half a fake one due to a Wine Accident, but you'd never know it to look at me). Iím from N Ireland, the bit of the island that is still owned by the UK, specifically the north-eastern part that looks like a droopy penis; in fact the town where I was born is nestled right in the scrotum.

I hereby confirm that I know absolutely nothing and I hope this communication finds you all ALERT, during this, The Slow Apocalypse.

Itís missing the stink of blatant, self-ignorant stupidity for sure.

Ahem.

Hello new person! We are horrible, vicious miscreants and we have buried the bodies where they wonít be found. We used to have a Welcome Committee, but that was years ago and the archaeologists arenít entirely sure they werenít a myth. Now some of us put on these weird clothes and Grin at people sometimes.

The traditional thing to say is that the Pool is on the roof, but unfortunately, the Pool is closed due to coronavirus. That doesnít mean you canít go up there, just that by doing so you waive your right to medical treatment.

But if youíre thinking that means we have no tourist attractions at all, I have great news for you! There are isolation chambers in the sub-basement! Some of them even have working ventilation. Will you select the right tiny closet to be locked into for at least a year? Only one way to find out!

Ah here, we're operating under the Rule of Vague up North. Is Leo still having you all stand 2km apart, or whatever he's at now? Stormont's response, such as it is, seems to revolve around Social Clapping every Thursday night on our doorsteps. It's turned into a macabre ritual, here's hoping it all works out in lieu of actual proper health service funding and respect for the NHS. Spirit of the Blitz, respect the bunting, all that malarkey.

Saw an interesting map on that Twitter the other day, pretty mental that the entire population of some north-western counties could all have a great day out in Croke Park with a reasonable level of social distancing. Something to look forward to there. Yisser doing well down there in Cork with the oul numbers game. My home county of Down's numbers likely skewed by the fact that Belfast straddles both Down and Antrim. I'm from Down myself but have somehow managed to settle in rural Antrim with a very patient Derry woman.

The social clapping thing is weird, they had an equivalent down here: leave a light in the window for healthcare workers.
Numbers are coming down per day, last few days have been under 100 cases a day so its getting there.
Leo is better as a caretaker Taoiseach then he ever was as the actual one, still no government, and no signs of forming one, and no party wants to be the one to call for an election at this time because whoever asks for it first is going to be destroyed in the polls.

Hi! I'm Robin or Robinj or Niborj or Nybor or something. I live in Scotland and work in videogame AI. Possibly my creations have killed you in an imaginary world.

I got into Discordianism in my teens, got far too obsessive about it and bored my friends senseless. Sorry. Then for a while I was an obnoxious atheist, till I noticed it had become inextricable with various types of awfulness. Recently I've been poking around in not-too-wooey Zenish Taoish stuff again. I love the idea that the self is an illusion and may try and write my thoughts on that out in a way that makes sense some day. I went to a Buddhist temple a couple of times and learned some Zen meditation, which I like and find I have a better day when I remember to do it, but it seems even slightly formal religion isn't for me.

Then I remembered Discordianism with its creativity and humour and freedom, dug out my old Principia, looked for Discordian facebook groups and oh god

And then I found this place with its explicit rule against alt-right wankery (how? do alt-right wankers? identify with Discordianism?) and it seems nice so far.

I make various stuff, which I've posted some of in Bring and Brag. I try to do a lot of things.

I love how many of us have similar origin stories

I started off christian, then got tao, then got fruitbat discordia, then became an obnoxious atheist, then a chaos mage, then people in this forum snapped me out of all of that, and now in 2020, I'm in an "it's complicated" relationship with reality.

my experience is that a lot of discordians, especially those that come in through Robert Anton Wilson, are all about rejecting dualities and not believing what they read.

And that model-agnosticism is great for not getting suckered.. but it can become its own form of dogma. You can get stuck in a trap where you automatically reject anything that seems partisan... or you recognize the issues that your own party has... and that leads to this handwavy "both sides are equally bad" smooth-brain energy.

Like, if you take a casual dip into the Robert Anton Wilson Fans facebook group, you find lots of people who are "free thinkers" that can't (or won't) distinguish between facism and antifascism.

I like to remind those types that 50% of Nazi Germany is still an unthinkably horrific genocide. Thereís no centrist position for Fascism.

(Of course, just like with biology, chemistry and physics, later on you learn thatís an outright lie to make it easier to understand the correct answers and that the centrist position for fascism is actually neoliberalism, which is why we are where we are today.)

I'm probably being overly generous in assuming that the alt-right discordians spun out from model agnosticism

most of them are just jerks who are high on the "you can't tell me what to do" vibe in the Principia

Discordia's always had them - the Legion of Dynamic Discord, it's like entry level discordia. St. Vincent Verthaine called that crowd the "Little Deluded Dupes".


you can also blame 4chan. In 2014, a bunch of Discordians on 4chan infected the group with the meme that Kek is an aspect of Eris, and that chaos magic & memes can be used to destabilize the status quo.

this is what alt-right occult discordia looks like:

Quote from: The Chao te Ching, Chapter 41
Some hear about Discordia, and plot against the Machineô.
Some hear about Discordia, and think about it at great length.
Some hear about Discordia, and decide it means they should get high and doodle.
If it weren't for those spags, Discordia wouldn't be as interesting as it is.

Order appears calming and sensible.
Disorder appears unsettling and unstable.
Doubt appears ignorant.
Certainty appears true.
Aggression appears confident.
Mirth appears uncaring.
Horror appears powerless.
All these are lies.

Uncertainty reveals itself as a narrow footbridge,
but with its heart in Chaos, the path is clear.

Ugh. I'm glad I got most of my growing up done before social media was a thing. If I'd gone looking for Discordians online and found something like that to feel identity with, yeesh.

And I remember RAW's brand of ultra-agnosticism. He took such an unshakeable, absolute, not-in-the-least-agnostic position on it. There's a sentence something like "At this point, you're either an agnostic or a stone paranoid - there is no middle ground" that stuck with me because it was so weirdly ironic. I read those books at the right time, and they made me curious and open-minded in a way that worked out well, but would have been easy to exploit.

My dad used to say "Don't be too open-minded or your brain will fall out," but I'm more bothered about what someone else could have put in there. (And now he's been turned into an alt-right wanker by the internet, but I digress.)

Never thought i'd make a 2nd one of these, but then i also never thought i would ever feel any semblance of happiness in my life.

Time is weird. The past ten years have been, a wild ride of sorts. They left me bitter for a while, left me with scars that will never go away. I have seen shit, done shit. And most of all, i was trying to figure out what the fuck i was doing, and who the fuck i was. Looking back, i can see all the signs - but i didn't know what to look for back then. It was time well spent, but also time lost. For i was never myself, could never be.

So two years ago i just came out - to myself, to the world - and i was dropped like a hot potato by friends and family alike.

But i have no regrets. The years of zen & discordia, and being exposed to the best and worst of humanity; it all had given me the tools to survive frankentran mode for the first couple months. When i learnt the health care system doesn't really care much and would have me wait another year or two, i went to biohack this body on my own. My body my rules right? Things became clear once the brain soup was *right* - at last.

And after a while, i finally felt free, and like i was arriving somewhere. Just had to relearn everything. The hate didn't stop though. it got worse the more i began to think i can just live my life. But i refuse to play nice and just hide away.

Society tells you to "just be yourself" but then turns on a dime with a "oh but not like that" when you do it in a way that it doesn't approve of... fucking regressives everywhere. In hindsight, i should have known. But some things one never knows until one has experienced it.


2020? This fucking year... where to even start?
I guess i became (at least for now) some sort of lefty zenarchist trans-more-or-les-bian and most of my time i wonder how i can deconstruct heteronormative bullshit and create a safer world for the generation to come - or i desperately try to find some cute female clothes which are not fitted for perfectly slim and petite fuckdolls.

Whatever is going to happen - for once i feel like, at least it is gonna be *me* dealing with all of it. And so i figured, i might as well come back here, where the journey to self began a long time ago...

Every time he comes back, he leads with "YOU'RE ALL INFERIOR" and then "WHY DID I GET BANNED."

He is basically the classic example of a smart guy crawling up his own ass and then pulling it in behind him.  I mean, shit, did anyone here NOT think Ron Paul Weed was going to worship the Joker the moment the movie was released?

Title: Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
Post by: The Johnny on July 06, 2020, 12:13:20 am

So what was good about this personal brand of Joker by Romero? Or what is it all about?

I can't deny that Phoenix did a good interpretation, but my issue with it is how the character was written. I dont think anyone cares that much and I cant find the words right now, but i find it more of a pathetic portrayal of a psychotic individual and the recounting of his narcissistic grandeur fantasies/deliriums while hes locked up in a ward.

While Ledger's interpretation was pretty good as well, but i prefer how the character was written... surely it has some psychotic tendencies as well, but its nihilistic ideological subtexts appeal to my inner edgy child more.

The fanbase of any of the variants of Joker tho, oh boy.
Title: Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
Post by: chaotic neutral observer on July 06, 2020, 12:51:40 am
As far as Joker depictions go, I'm more a fan of Mark Hamill, although I quite liked Heath Ledger's, as well.

I haven't seen this recent Joker movie, though.  It doesn't really sound like my kind of thing.
Title: Re: Introductions, Part VI: Welcome to Our PD Party
Post by: Faust on July 06, 2020, 04:21:08 am
Its really well acted and its the most believeable Gotham.
The story structure is fairly basic but the nihilistic and mean spirited crutch it uses is very limiting.

Every situation where the protagonist is challenged goes two ways: he tries to be kind and reach out and is harmed or loses something
Or
He performs a violent act and is rewarded for it.

Seriously, rewatch the film, there is nothing more to it. Violence is a key to improve your life is the ttakeaway.

You can't even call that a descent into madness because his violent acts are justified to him every single time, not the actions of a crazy person to follow the guidelines of the world provided.

I think the Joaqin Phoenix Joker was a better movie, but Heath Ledger was a better Joker.

A Bill Murray Joker would be so psychologically damaging, it should be made but nobody should be allowed to watch it.

Post by: P3nT4gR4m on July 06, 2020, 01:17:01 pm
As someone afflicted by the odd episode of psychotic mania, the joker has always been a personal favourite of mine. Heath Ledger played it to a tee for me. There's an appeal to mania. It's like a drug, trying to suck you back in. I've spoken to people who hate it, not me, I fucking love it. I just can't indulge because shit does not end well down that road. So the Joker lets me live out the fantasy vicariously.

The latest one with Joaquin Phoenix was a fucking good looking movie and a great performance but, for me, it had fuck all to do with the Joker. Dude in the film wasn't a maniac. He was some sort of dissociative depressed person. Nothing against depressed people but for me it's like the choice between a getting wasted story and a hangover story. Like, I wanna see strippers and flashing blue lights and climbing up the side of a building for a dare, not some dude lying in bed complaining cos his head hurts for two hours and fifteen I didn't get my fix :argh!:

I enjoyed the movie, but I had to wait to see it

It felt like the mediasphere had pre-agreed that the movie was going to be a SYMBOL, a STATEMENT

and I just didn't want to participate in any of that

I didn't want to like the movie and then feel like I needed to defend it
I didn't want to hate the movie and feel like I needed to explain
And I sure didn't want to make a statement about mass shootings or mental health or whatever - one way or the other - by buying a ticket or not buying a ticket.

Yeah it was a good movie IMO, but the whole media hype around it was exhausting.

Hello!

Empedocles described the Four Elements as the "root" states of matter that were basically banged around by the forces of Love and Strife until everything was created. So we're actually looking at 6 fundamentals instead of 4, and 6-1=5. OR we could add in an additional root of Aether/Spirit/what-have-you and get to five that way.

I think the Universe wants to be balanced but falls down a lot.

I was going to mention this earlier, but it slipped my mind.

Iíd rather be watching bizarre Japanese cyberpunk movies
Yo, Altered:  Psycho-pass.

In a futuristic Japan, everyone's mental state is continuously monitored by the Sibyl System, via near-ubiquitous brain-scanning technology.  A clear, light-colored psycho-pass is a sign of a happy, well-adjusted individual; if the pass becomes dark and cloudy, the person is encouraged to undergo therapy.  If the scans show signs of latent criminality, the person is preemptively imprisoned.

Even the weapons issued to law-enforcement are tied to the system.  If a target's crime coefficient is low, the trigger is locked; if it's elevated, the stun mode is enabled; if it's severe, they will be summarily executed.

The system is perfect.

Our heroine is a new Inspector at the Ministry of Welfare Public Safety Bureau, which is responsible for apprehending latent (and actual) criminals.  It's a risky job, since exposure to criminal elements and high-stress situations can often elevate an Inspector's crime coefficient to dangerous levels.

Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwmXh1IzV3g

If you're looking for Japanese cyberpunk, Psycho-pass is one of my favourites. I can't speak as to the second season or the movie, though.  The second season has a pretty bad reputation (different writer), so I avoided it.

I was talking about the genre of Japanese cyberpunk, not cyberpunk made in Japan.

But I understand the confusion. It's like the difference between pop music made in Europe and Europop.

Japanese cyberpunk is stuff like Tetsuo, Meatball Machine, Rubber's Lover, Tokyo Gore Police, Pinocchio 964, Electric Dragon 80000V, Death Powder. Extremely nightmarish and surreal, usually with some kind of transformation into some sort of horrible thing, lots of gore and goo, and generally just indescribably weird. It doesn't really fit "cyberpunk". It's more like... magical realism meets body horror meets cyberpunk.

Yeah, my mistake.  That would be an almost entirely different genre.  Aside from one story arc probably inspired by Ed Gein, Psycho-pass doesn't go much into body-horror.  Parasyte or Gantz might qualify, but I didn't care for either of them.

Here's the thing, you said "the genre of Japanese cyberpunk".

Is it in the same family? Yes. No one's arguing that.

As someone who is a scientist who studies cyberpunk, I am telling you, specifically, in science, no one calls cyberpunk made in Japan "Japanese cyberpunk". If you want to be "specific" like you said, then you shouldn't either. They're not the same thing.

If you're saying "Japanese cyberpunk family" you're referring to the taxonomic grouping of genres, which includes things from I.K.U. to Crazy Thunder Road to Burst City.

So your reasoning for calling a cyberpunk in Japan Japanese cyberpunk is because random people "call all futuristic looking films that?" Let's get Bladerunner and Videodrome in there, then, too.

Also, calling someone a human or an ape? It's not one or the other, that's not how taxonomy works. They're both. A Japanese cyberpunk film is a Japanese cyberpunk film and a member of the cyberpunk in Japan family. But that's not what you said. You said a Japanese cyberpunk film is a cyberpunk film made in Japan, which is not true unless you're okay with calling all members of the crow family crows, which means you'd call blue jays, ravens, and other birds crows, too. Which you said you don't.

It's okay to just admit you're wrong, you know?

Also it has me SERIOUSLY thinking if Videodrome is better described as a Western take on Japanese cyberpunk or something altogether different. Max's journey isn't so different from the Salaryman's in Tetsuo, and the technosexual elements are a big part of Japanese cyberpunk. The entire point of both the Japanese cyberpunk thing and Videodrome is a sort of societal technophobia. Combine the transformation, the violence and surreality ... it's pretty solidly in the canon.

The only problem with that is it predates the ur-example of Japanese cyberpunk: The Phantom of Regular Size, which eventually became Tetsuo.

Damn you for bringing taxonomy to my extremely niche interests.

Who am I?
I am an uncultured Kansas City suburbanite. Born into the Mormon faith, currently gnawing ineffectively at the walls of my "formerly Mormon" black iron prison.

How did I find myself here?
I came here by way of the podcast titled "Embrace the Void" where the host Aaron Rabinowitz had dropped several references to the principia discordia. After Aaron devoted an entire episode to the idea of discordianism and the principia discordia, I finally became intrigued enough to search for the work, which lead me to your domain. I'll admit I still have yet to finish the damn thing as I am easily distracted and decided to instead complete a first pass of "Or Kill Me", several BIP works (BIP, BIP 2013 Musings of a Faceless Man), and "The Compleat Billy Chronicles" thread, (not in that order).

Why am I bothering?
Online forums were my digital drug of choice growing up and I have a problem. Oh, and I registered in hopes of seeing the fatberg, sadly the picture is no longer there.

Recipes?
Mostly I make breakfast foods and deserts, though I have dabbled in yogurt culture and bread making. I'll lend my meager knowledge if asked.

Hello, new guy! :wave:

Eh, it didn't age very well; there's a lot of fluff.  If you want to skip, here's some of the better bits:

A Zen Story: pg. 12 (http://principiadiscordia.com/book/12.php).
A Sermon on Ethics and Love: pg. 46 (http://principiadiscordia.com/book/45.php).
The Sacred Chao: pg 56-57 (https://www.principiadiscordia.com/book/56.php).

Thank You for the welcome.
CNO, Thank you for the suggestions.
I just went back to see how far I had made it, looks like I bailed just before the Turkey curse. Moving to a new desk/computer means losing all my open tabs and losing track of where I was in some readings.
But I agree, those were some of the bits that I enjoyed the most, along with the parable of the bitter tea pg. 37 (at least in the table of contents?) (http://principiadiscordia.com/book/44.php), the little script at the bottom about hell resonates with that whole former mormon bit of me. but I also recognize the urge to take shortcuts that I'll regret later in that parable.

I'll probably mostly keep lurking, as I've been doing for the last couple months.

Hello everyone!
Glad I finally found this thread, I was about to give up and just write an introduction in the middle of nowhere.
I actually found out about Discordianism less than a month ago, by way of a forwarded message in a Telegram chat that referred back to a Discordian Society. Not a very active group, but then I decided to actually google (or rather, duckduckgo) the thing and, sweet Eris, I was overwhelmed! Not just by the classics (PD, Illuminatus!, etc.) but by the newer stuff too. It's like stumbling into a whole universe, just reading the forum archives makes me feel dizzy.
Why am I bothering? Because a lot of this stuff really resonates with me. The humour, the ideas (especially from BIP, Holy Nonsense, and the best parts of PD), the GASM thing. Partly I had already found it under different forms, but seeing it presented like this is exhilarating and inspiring. And frankly, it couldn't come at a better time.
So yeah, I'll stick around for a while, read a lot, and hopefully write as much.

Oh, and as for recipes, I really like dopiazeh:
150g ground beef
250g potatoes
1 yellow or red onion, cubed
2 garlic cloves, minced
Tomato paste
Turmeric
Somag
Tarragon

Sautťe onion in olive oil. When it's golden brown, put half aside and add turmeric and tomato paste to the rest. Cook until it gets almost curry-like. Add the remaining ingredients, cover with enough water, and cook on medium heat for half an hour, then keep going until it's smooth enough for your taste.

Dopiazeh would, I assume, go quite well with a nice shiraz?

Post by: Haumavarga on October 14, 2020, 03:08:22 pm
Definitely, but any red wine will do, really. Just don't go looking for subtle flavours, the spices will overpower them.
Which reminds me: also add black pepper and chili pepper to taste before serving. And salt if you really want to be weird.

It has been a while since I've been on here last, about a decade. I don't have any of my old info to sign into that old account, theCalmpsychopath, so I made a new one. Hope that's alright. Didn't contribute too much with the last account anyway. Pretty excited to catch up on the info that has been put out. Glad to see a lot of the same people on here. Hope everyone has been well.

Hello everyone. I need to get better at expressing myself, so this introduction will probably be awkward to read. Sorry about that. I first found this forum about a year ago when I was learning about Discordianism. I drifted away from the religion itself a little while later, but Iíve kept coming back from time to time since then. A lot of what you talk about on here has really resonated with me, and this also looks like the best place Iíve found to get serious criticism about what I think.

I donít know how often Iíll actually post on here vs reading your threads, but I do know Iíll probably stick around for a long while. When I do post, other than to react to other people, itíll most likely be either to ask questions or to get your input on my ideas. Iím worried that Iím too inexperienced to participate on here, but I need to grow up someday. Hopefully Iíll end up contributing in a positive way, whether thatís soon or when Iím older.

I donít know any really unique or obscure recipes, so the best I can offer is a tip for making grilled cheese sandwiches. If you butter the outsides of your bread, and then coat them with parmesan itíll give them an extra layer of crunch when theyíre grilled. Maybe youíd like that.

It doesn't actually matter if you're the least experienced fish in the bicycle race, if you know what I mean.

What we have proven over 18 years of SCIENCE is that nobody is good at this, and if someone SEEMS to be good at it, they're selling you something (tangible or otherwise).  Usually they are selling you the idea that they are some form of Guru or otherwise Really Important Person that You Should Listen To, but on one memorable occasion we had a guy named Gavriel try to sell us our own art work.

This of course worked out well for everyone involved.

Gavriel joined the board, then claimed "rights" to everything down in the B&B subforum.  Then he told us to relax, we would get a discount at his online store as "co-owners", IIRC.

Then everyone laughed at him until he decided we were all shits and none of our stuff was good enough for his page.

Then he left.
