Discordia en Espanol / Gender Neutral Spanich, etc.
« on: May 03, 2020, 01:20:37 pm »
I'm sure this's been addressed, but I was wondering today about the "gender neutral" language we're supposed to've been using for the past 20 or 30 years, and how that jibes out with Spanish and the other romance languages, where every noun is (seemingly randomly) gendered, i.e., "el" for "male" things and "la" for "female" things, etc? I'm very ignorant in this field so please don't ridicule me.

Apple Talk / My harrowing experiances with Scientology
« on: December 31, 2013, 11:16:07 pm »
So, I was poking around the philosophy section as I was want to do when I was nineteen and I came across the book Dianetics. For some bizarre reason I picked it up and took it home and read it. And damn if it didn't make a little sense to me.So I sent away for the little test thingie in the back of the book and guess what? I needed their help. So I was in Baltimore at the time and the nearest center was in DC...so I got my girlfriend to take me up there (I didn't drive).The place was pretty much empty and they were playing the batman soundtrack in what I guess was the lobby. I took the intro course for $100. For that you got a book of tapes of L Ron yammering on in lectures which you were encouraged to listen to at your leisure. And then came the auditing. I was paired off with a middle aged woman with an air of desperation about her. I was required to pick a traumatic event and go over that from beginning to end over and over.I picked my girlfriends dog getting hit by a car, because i couldn't really think of anything else. Well after a couple trips up there I got tired or bored of it and quit. About the same time my parents received a whole gigantic stack of poorly xeroxed documents and articles explaining how evil the whole thing was, but I never really judged them to harshly. To this day, some twenty years, later I still receive calls and mail from them. This is like twenty years later. Oh and they made me sign something that said I could get my money back if I didn't badmouth them. Oh and all that literature that my folks gave me was put together by the Cult Awareness Network or something. The Scientologists now run it.
But I was definitely duped, man, for awhile there I bought into the whole thing and I believe this is the longest thing I've ever written on the internet.

Apple Talk / Lucid Dreaming.
« on: December 27, 2013, 07:06:12 pm »
Anyone practice it.I mean, it's merely a form of entertainment, not some one stop to enlightenment. I usually end up grabbing titties. Which is a bit shallow, I'll be the first to admit. Generally, with this thread, I'm hoping to get some tips on getting something more substantial out of it.

Apple Talk / Not even lurking.
« on: December 22, 2013, 06:40:12 pm »
So, I'm here without even lurking  :argh!: 'Cause your shit seems kind of dense and rife with in-jokes. I don't have the concentration to unravel the monkey's paw of absurdity on display here. Just know I am the number one fan of George Takei and an avid toy collector. I hope we can get along in unity and not turd buckle against a granite wall. I have much to learn, but I'm a disciple of William Burroughs so don't think you can pull the flax over my eyes!
