Looks like promotion time for Karl Rove. And you thought Ashcroft was bad.

Irakis banging on shells with a hammer is not uncommon at all, and is no prank. They collect the copper rings on the shells to sell them later. I get this from a Sergeant who came back just a few days ago.

Anarchy can work if you have groups of less than 2 persons.

I'm somewhat proud and confused to report that several german and british citizens expressed significant content after reading Gnimbley's play at my suggestion.

the play kicks ass, and it's a shame I'll never see it.

from what i read of the pdf it's pretty good.

Also, religious authorities have had a lot of say in many european monarchies over the last couple milleniums.

Absentee ballots circumvent Diebold's riggedy boxes. In many states you have the right to vote with an absentee ballot without having to give justification.

As for all the local politics, that's the ground the libertarians have been gaining for some time now.

Take 6 rats.
Put the rats in a cage connected to a submerged hall ending with a food distributor.

Come back the next day, you will find the rats organized as follows:
1 free rat that goes and take food and eats it
2 exploiter rats that steal the food from the rats that go fetch it
2 slave rats that go take food for the government rats then for themselves
1 rat that get the crumbs and kicks

You can take the exploiter rats from three cages and put them together, and you'll get the same organisation spontaneously the next day. Same with 6 "free" rats. Same with SOD rats. Same with slave rats.

It's kinda the same with humans. Put too many anarchists together and some will subdue others and form an organised government within the group, forcing the remaining anarchists to fight for their own sake.

A sizeable portion of the population prefers a master and instructions on how to enjoy life, and another portion likes to get more than it deserves and to rule over the others.

I like to think that we're the free ones, but it'd be a mistake to think that everyone would agree to embrace the Ways of Eris.

The Theory of Everything, as shown in my sig, says that everything is electromagnetic waves. Even people. In fact, people's minds are waves as well. Their thoughts and words and acts are signals on the waves of the Universe. But with the advent of the DUMB, ever since we lived in the Fuck-All civilization, most of it turned to noise.

Behold, for there lies the Greater Paradox of the Greyfaces, and the Holy Realization of the Law of Chaos: that the cabbages claim Order, but are nothing more than random non-signals in the course of events, senseless rambling, delivered encased in little packages of meat.

My fellow Discordians or not, the signal-to-noise ratio has been degrading ever since the Curse of Greyface has been cast on mankind. Remember: an open mind makes a better antenna for receiving the broadcasts of Eris.

So go rub'em rusty pineal glands till they shine !

Thanks :)

And Bob, if you like Feynman and Dirac, go read this (and its follow-up here). Not completely satisfying, but very very promising.

You know, we'll meet again eventually, after you leave the common consciousness for one more cycle.

And in fact we might very well have already. We're all one big cousciousness that gets divided into tiny itsy bitty individualities. We lived all the lives of every conscious being of all time, one at a time.

"The exception tests the rule" -- Richard Feynman, the last true physicist

"If a man in a long white coat tells you that something is true, it probably is. But if he tells you that something is false, then he is absolutely wrong." -- Sir Arthur C. Clarke, one guy well worthy of his Knighhood.

"SHUT UP!" he explained. -- Stephen Leacock

Do you know what it is to be a Discordian studying sciences ? Can you imagine the sheer pain, the feeling of absolute repulsion that the permeating dogmatism the current scientific establishment exsudes can give to the genuinely free-wheeling mind ? Has any one of you ever tasted the ostrichizing attitude of self-importance conveyed by some of the most mediocre rational minds found in colleges and research labs ?

Fortunately, mediocrity is truth-invariant. That is, it does not matter in the bigger picture of theories, explanations, experiments, data collections and facts. But Goddess, can it be annoying. "Save the Holey Kludge ! Believe my words as that of God itself even though I have no clue !" even though there is always one better explanation. Hence my new sig. But I di-gress (or do I con-gress ?).

So I was walking along the road that links the House of the Crazy Drunk Monkeys in which I have found a place to live in peace, and the place that connects our world to the Railroad world (a parallel dimension in which time slows down to a crawl while brain stops functioning almost entirely, in which air is impure and headaches abound, and where Greyness incarnates into a dark blue suit, to ask for your ticket). I was lost in my own thoughts, as is too often the case, rambling about how everyone had been brainwashed so as not to believe, even in the face of overwhelming evidence, in any theory (be it alien presence on Earth or Illuminati's world domination plans) that menaces their kludged reality assessment map. This naturally drove me to think about the incarnation of utmost ugliness that is the Standard Model taught in every Approved‚Ѣ school of science, and of its many short-comings and flaws. That so many minds can be fooled into chasing the shadow instead of the prey saddens me. And accordingly rose in my heart the terrible feeling of inadequacy of All This, which made me mourn on the immense waste of efforts and reasoning it represents.

See for example the 15 years it took just for accepting that maybe, perhaps, something special could indeed sometimes happen in certain weird conditions of electrolysis. What tragedy, what outrage, that so many reasonable people with long beards would rather fling their excrements, in the manner of irritated simians, in order to save the theory and sweep the reality under the rug ! Unfortunately for them, so many things have been sweeped there, that the rug now resembles an elephant. The Emperor has no clothes, I thought.

This is about the moment that Eris chose to sway a lightpole in my footsteps. And thus was I enlightened.

Everything is false. Even true things are false. Maybe. And I should watch my steps instead of worrying about it all.

Hmmm, the new twist in Act 2 is interesting, but somehow I find it weaker than the previous full-front confrontation between the two George. And Eris is so much more like the crazy witch neighbour than an occultist Secret Service Agent... The former Act 2 fitted better in between the other two acts, now you have some slight plotholes to fix in the Act 3 (Taylor V.S. Mrs Bush part in particular).
