*blows dust off login*

Oh my god have you all STILL not shut the fuck up???

granted I talk to like half of ye on Facebutt BUT STILL

The fact that my hand reflexively went to "Preview" before "Post" proves that forums were always, and continue to be, a superior medium for communicating to any other form of posting.

Except that nobody uses them.   :lulz:

Or Kill Me / Re: Antipathy

Yeah,  you know what? You win. It's senseless for me to continue. It simply is not worth it. Not because I'm scared, but because, if no one wants me here, me saying more dumb shit is pointless. There's a billion other communities  that actually appreciate my input, I should  go back to those. So yeah, going the fuck away.

Maybe you should stop being a passive aggressive dickbag and post like a civil human being.

Naw.  That's just talkin' all crazy.

Not sure, but what I AM sure of is that it doesn't matter.

There is nothing "just" about Eris.  She is a crone wading knee-deep in blood, smirking because she taught those other gods BUT GOOD for leaving her out of a party, and she did it by triggering a dark age.

Lastly, given general Greek mythology, it meant "the hottest," because the Greeks were shallow as fuck.

Thank you Doktor, I am probably sure that you are correct in that it doesn't matter.  As with most things, in general. 
Still...I like to explore alternative theories to pass the time  You evidently have some to share :)

Is Eris a petty bitch? Really sounds like one if you put it that way. :(

And here I was thinking that chaos/discord could be seen as "just" in a bizarre way, since we are pretty much all susceptible to it. On varying levels. I am possibly overthinking this.

The Greeks sure did have a "hotness" virtue lol.  There is an emphasis on aesthetic beauty in their tales. Screw all that inner beauty shit. External "hotness" is hardly fair/just and (mostly) overrated. It is a bonus, though!
:D
 

If you wanna call Eris a bitch, do it over there.  Way over there.

Here it is, CNO. If you donít immediately break out in fucking hives when you hear this then you somehow actually avoided Faith No More. And I canít believe it.

Fair warning: /I/ find this song intolerable. Me. It is difficult for me to believe it had any fucking popularity at all.

That's the one.

How in the fuck did you not know Faith No More? They were fucking inescapable when I was a child.

Yeah, that one song was on every 6 seconds.

The phrase on the apple, "ΤΗΙ ΚΑΛΛΙΣΤΗΙ" may be derived from an epithet of the nymph Callisto:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Callisto_(mythology)#Origin_of_the_myth

It sounds like the word was sometimes attached to other goddess names, like Kallisti Athena (Athena the Most Beautiful)


this page on the Apple adds a little more:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_of_Discord#%22To_the_Most_Beautiful%22

Quote
Καλλίστῃ is the dative singular of the feminine superlative of καλός, beautiful. In Latin sources, the word is formosissima.

"formosissima" is latin for "most beautiful" or "most well-formed", which seems to refer to physical qualities.


But  The Greek word καλός seems a little bit more broad than saying something is "well put together", it also has a connotation of rightness:


Quote
καλός ē (kalůs) m (feminine καλή, neuter καλόν); first/second declension

1. beautiful, lovely
2. good, quality, useful
3. good, right, moral, virtuous, noble


That's not particularly surprising. If you were beautiful, it was because the gods loved you and iirc there's a connection between beauty and moral rightness in some Indo European traditions.

And in America.
