I feel you on doubts about whether or not you're just fooling yourself in a different fashion and that perhaps, just maybe, there's no real difference between yourself and the other dumbasses. I've had only one real epiphany about it.

But in the meantime, I have to know how to act, so that I don't accidentally turn into something I don't want to be.  And the way I act is, "follow a set of principles, even if some or many or even MOST of the people involved mean absolutely nothing at all to me." 

It hit me watching Full Metal Jacket. The part where the one fella is like "Sir, I have realized that whatever my response is it will be wrong, and so I have decided to stick to my guns, sir!" Or words to that effect. The dude gets promoted. That's what struck me. That instructor had only one job, to teach those men how to die trying! I therefore have news for you that may save you undue rumination.

Doktor Howl you are wrong. Whatever your beliefs, they are also wrong. This applies to every single human on earth and you are one of us.

There's real freedom in this epiphany if you're strong and wise enough. You can laugh off almost anything. You can be wrong in whatever fashion you prefer. Nothing is True, so do as you see fit. The old Illuminated dogma may be a paradox but it is not incorrect. Paradoxes are part of reality. "I know only that I know nothing" was the most correct paradox Socrates, or anyone, ever uttered, but nobody likes it. Nobody realizes what that really means. It means Science is wrong and trying to correct what it can not by means of logic and reduction. All art is a fucking beautiful lie trying to cover up wrongness(often successfully). All faiths are vanity and a chasing after the wind. Even Nihilism and similar worldviews are straight up dead ends that may lead to a wasted life.

So what to do? Whatever seems best to you. Exactly what the fools do, but instead of a hollow smirk you have a knowing GRIN. You can be wrong HARDER, FASTER, BETTER than they ever will. Taking on 6 to 2 odds for example is stupid even for a trained fighter, but you'd DO IT anyway on PRINCIPAL. That's what the fools will not have, principals. Not real ones anyway. Yours can be MORE solid for your realization that you are wrong and have chosen to "stick to your guns." Principals are a weapon. The hardest of two otherwise equal weapons tends to prevail.

So yes you are wrong about yourself.
Yes, you are one of the dumbasses.(welcome to the club)
Yes you may come across as a tourist to various subcultures no matter what your intent.
Your "rationality" may well be as wrong as chemtrails, anti-vaxxers, Libertarians, or whatever. (I don't think this of you but it's quite possible)

That you are wrong is unimportant in itself, but realizing it poses a paradox all its own. If a dumbass realizes they are a dumbass are they still a dumbass?

I know only that I am a dumbass. Knowing that, I act anyway but with that tiny scrap of wisdom. This dumbass hopes that this was helpful to you in some way. Either way I said my piece on something I have thought about much of my life.

C&P the link, not sure why it's truncating it.

I did. Holy. Fucking. Shit!

There's a small part of me that wants to join and do nothing but stir the pot. I want to go all Atlantis and shit. Maybe start a little side cult.

but fuck that. Too much work too little payout. Better to just keep myself at a safe distance as it develops. Thanks for posting that.

I wonder if or how the Cult of Kek ties into all this.

Things I learned from this cup of shit.

EVERY government is a criminal conspiracy to concentrate wealth and power in the hands of a few, and to suppress dissent among the rest.

Big thieves hang little thieves.

Rich people get richer by getting poor people to kill each other in the name of a phony ideal.

Kill a hundred people and you spend your life in jail. Kill a million people and you ride to the opera in a limousine.

I think someone made you Klatchian coffee and you are now knurd, the opposite of drunk. It's a state where you see reality all TOO clearly and without any comfortable delusion according to the late, great Terry Pratchett.

As for the OP I couldn't help thinking of it in context of the "you" being spoken to being God. As though He had pet humans and didn't take proper care of them and they accidentally all over this reality.

Howl was talking about putting calluses on you. His calluses are miles thick and used by Science to block out radio waves and subatomic particles in search of neutrino emitting galaxies.

 :boring: Same old story. Newspag walks in and gets all butthurt then passive-agressively picks a hopeless fight with Howl because he said the bad words.

Why don't you go ahead and show us how Discordianism is done? That would be stage 2 of your all too predictable journey.

 Go on.

Open up a thread. Write a rant. Do something, anything really, before you come spouting off at your elders like that.

You're just
a cookie-cutter
gutter punk
with a bit of
a mouth on him.

... Change my mind

I like that you kept the picture. It's iconic to me, and I think a nearly perfect reflection of your innermost self.

...Not that I know what your innermost self looks like or anything. *shudders*

Speaking of drugs and a loss of reality check into the Baron Trump time travel theory. There's something compelling about it.

This guy did a pretty good summary:

There's a lot of shit to chew on about Trump and time travel if you run a search and start digging.

Holy fuck.  :lulz:

Now, if I invented time travel, I'd send Sarah Huckabee back to Philly in 1787.
I had to Google and in doing so found this.

The Committee of Detail were some serious constitution pimping gangstas. Except for Gorham. I'm guessing nobody really liked Gorham.

Hey! Sarah Sanders could meet Gorham and empower him with knowledge from the future and we'd all be fucked.

 :eek: We must prevent Dok Howl from ever developing time travel or our world as we know it is doomed. Well more doomed anyway.

TFA was meh.

TLJ was actually good, though fuck me if it took some time to get there.  The showdown between Kylo Ren and Luke Skywalker was worth the price of admission.

Also worthwhile was the moment that Yoda mindfucks Luke (and the audience) by burning down the sacred tree they kept the Jedi books in, knowing, I presume, that they had already been stolen.

Personally I think it would have been cooler if the books had been burned too. I take my iconoclasm seriously.

Luckily, the bill is still in committee, with an estimated 20% chance of becoming law, as per Skopos.

The guy who wrote/sponsored this bill is Daniel Donovan Jr (R-NY).  He's up for re-election this year.  His opponent is Boyd Nelson.

The co-sponsors are:
Ted Budd (R-NC), also up for re-election against Kathy Manning.  Fun fact: Budd's campaign pulled a URL troll against her, buying which doles out misinformation about her.

Paul Gosar (R-AZ).  Primaries are August 28.

Peter King (R-NY).  His opponent is Liuba Grechen Shirley, and there's a chance she'll beat him.

Anyway, for those who will be sharing this bill, it might be helpful to provide the above information so people can do more than just be gobsmacked and pissed off.

Thank you.

It's kind of funny how some people will say they "get" the idea behind the Pope cards (and maybe even remember the twist in Illuminatus!) but still fall in line regarding Greyface.

You can bring a Pope to knowledge,
but you can't make 'em think.
