Kinda weird stumbling across that image. Just the other day I was working on my own “two-fold and cross” method. Meaning, the method for folding the paper prior to contact with the soiled crack.

Six to eight sheets

join ends of entire length

join ends of entire length a second time

join two corners at 45° angle.

This gives enough coverage + enough padding without risk of breakthrough. Best part, is that with this configuration, you can wipe/fold, wipe/fold, wipe/dispose. Usually at least three good wipes out of 8 sheets, and it folds nice so there’s little risk of….trauma.

The resulting wad of soiled paper that goes in the toilet can be thick tho. If you just had chili or curry, and you have to use multiple wads, a flush might be in order. A clogged toilet when you’ve got runny poops almost seems to go against nature. And it could get messy quick if you don’t have a plunger handy.

That defeats the purpose of attempting to be efficient with the paper
^Fergal Freeman / Call of the Mystic (Enchanted Mix)^

Another pro-toilet tip?

Never mix fluids/discharge(s)

Like, never blow your nose with toilet paper whilst shitting. You may get confused as to which end has been wiped, and which has not. Would suck to wipe your ass then blow your nose with the same paper because you were multitasking. Not everything “efficient” is worth the risk.

FYI
^deadmau5 – Bad Selection^

Summer is over. Just thought you should know in the event you weren’t paying attention.

And yes, summer is also over for you folks in the Southern Hemisphere too, even tho it hasn’t even started yet. Sorry, but this year you’re just gonna have to tough out winter like us normal humans in the north.

Merry Christmas
^Summer Breeze Seals and Croft^

You spend most of your time in a rectangular room. You’re surrounded by rectangular walls with rectangular doors and rectangular windows, and you move upon and about a rectangular floor, with a rectangular roof above you. Your brain is likely to get somewhat accustomed to processing rectangular geometric information(s). When you venture away from that environment, your being is likely to be somewhat flooded with all kinds of new and interesting stuff.

Q: What if you are blind? Deaf?

A: Gotta get you away from those eyes of yours

Not permanently, just a temporary vacation. Your ears are likely to process a good deal of spacial information. Gonna be kind of a passive thing, but density, distance and relative position is also going to be processed by those big-assed ears of yours. Yes, your ears are fucking huge.

Sorry, someone had to tell you, so it may as well be me

Anyway, the topic of processing spacial information came up today, and the basis was the processing of contextual geometric information(s). Making distinctions as to what should and should not be in a certain somewhere, peculiarities, anomalies, etc.. Maybe even those things that can be in a certain somewhere, but these things themselves contain embedded information that is out of place. How we process geometric information, and what “geometric” even means with respect to processing shape data and/or shaped information.

Let's break out to elaborate
^Hotknife / Time to Party (Original Mix)^
You may recognize this shape



But what about this variant?

Now, before I go too much further, those two images have some very specific meaning(s). One appears to mean “Jesus Freak”, and the other appears to mean “Semi-Woke Jesus Freak”. I would imagine the second is an “answer”…

to this shape



Or maybe this shape

The first image gave us a base of geometric understanding…

and things mutated 



and evolved



from there

So with respect to processing information, it’s prolly not just/only a matter of learning to make a distinction between known and unknown. We need to make considerations for uncertainty, irregularity, one-off(s), intentionals, unintentuals, mutative/change(s), all kinds of strangeness(es), and of course…time(s).

What does any of that have to do with processing shape information and/or shaped information? I dunno. Guess it depends on what you are looking at/for, and why. Maybe also what you are not looking at/for and why. Yeah…prolly both of those.

Just a matter of time(s)
^Avoure – Aura^

Strange way for two parties to have a conversation, eh? Back and forth over who is right/wrong based on what is basically a preschool drawing of a fish.

At least they're talking
^3/10 Lollercoaster – Melleefresh vs. deadmau5 @ Traffik, Montreal, 25-11-2006^

Lets say that you are looking at a planet, and you are looking for signs of life.

Where to start? 

Mirrors? Mirrors suck. What you personally see in the mirror on a daily basis is in no way, shape or form anything like life. Certainly not representative of life as a whole. Just you and your whole life. You aren’t the center of the universe.

Where was I? 

Oh yeah, looking for life on another planet. Nothing good going on here on Earth/Terra, so we gotta look elsewhere. With that in mind, chances are good that you are looking for something foreign to this planet. But what would that look like? When was the last time you went walking in an open field, completely unfettered, unhinged, and totally off the hook?

Have you ever? 

Don’t get too reliant upon that television if you don’t have to. That thing misses a lot of nuance. Shaped information. Only so much you can see because whatever you are watching has passed through many filters before getting to you. Maybe you aren’t thinking correctly with respect to searching for something that doesn’t appear to be there. Maybe it’s there, and you just aren’t seeing it. Or hearing it. Or feeling it.

^Saltwater (Original) by Chicane^

Hey, I’m just trying to maybe get you to think about how you think, and especially as thinking relates to the processing of geometric shapes. Might keep you safe if you’re running naked through a field, and the shape of a bus suddenly appears in your FOV. If the bus-shape is blurry, stop running. If the bus-shape/image stays blurry, you might want to take evasive action/start running away from this shape.

Don’t ask me what in the fuck a bus in doing in the middle of a field. There’s a naked person running through this field, so this particular field appears to be a field that attracts some weird shit.

Something horrible has happened in there, and it happened only recently.

Is a looping echo of charitable sentiments indicative of a failure of past benevolent processes? Perhaps even an indication that no real attempts have been made to permanently resolve the need for a certain philanthropic something? I’ll give an example of what I’m thinking here…

The United Way raised $21,700 in its first year of operation. The year? 1887.

The United Way raised $3.919 billion in 2018 (fiscal year ended June 2019).

That's an increase of 18,059,907% in 132 years

Now, adjusted for inflation, that 1887 money is supposedly $586,491.61 in 2019 dollars. But I have to wonder what 2019 dollars will be valued at in the year 2151, which is 132 years from now. Did some reading, and the US GDP was $12.6 billion in 1887, which means that one single US charity in 2018CE raised around 1/3 of the entire country’s 1887CE GDP. Let’s see what $3.919 billion was worth in 1887.

$105,919,844,315.79

Is it possible that $3.919 billion in today’s money is going to be worth almost $106 billion in 2151CE? I have no idea, and I guess it would depend on who you ask. Don’t ask anyone from a local church or anyone from Extinction Rebellion. Pretty sure they’re all convinced everyone and everything will be dead in 2151CE. Oh, and to add some additional perspective to those numbers, the current US President is said to have a net worth of around $3.1 billion as of March 2019CE.

From the United Way website…

“United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.”

United Way fights. United Way...fights

Not only are you and yours fighting, looks like you’re fighting anyone and everyone, everywhere. Prolly would be considered “PC” of me to suggest that you remove “fight”. Prolly more important that you lose the fighting mentality. Who and what are these forces you are fighting? What is driving them? Big corporations? Big interests? Big dollars?

It's easy to pick on the big dogs
^Chris Brown & Benny Benassi – Beautiful People^

We treat you like “this” because you are a woman.

We treat you like “this” because you are a man.

We treat you like “this” because you are…a human?

Is it the ordering?

Watched a doc earlier this week that kinda touched on a lot of the peculiarities that I wrestle with regarding nomenclatures and the implied behavioral protocols that they can sometimes imply.

But, you’re free to watch the doc then make up your own determinations as to how you treat someone and why. Or not.

Whatevz
^Intersex – redefining gender | DW Documentary^

I’m not sure what to think about this. Had some thoughts recently about who can utilize infrastructure(s) to make money and why…

...but yeah, not sure what to think about this

Cept maybe that the à la carte model is being forced via any and all means.

^Demonetization by You Tube of Technical Content on the Blancolirio Channel^

Does steam “open the pores”? Open the pores of the skin. I would assume “heat” does this/helps this, so a hot bath or shower opens the pores.

Is this really a good idea tho?

Open the pores, slather on soap(s), scrub it in, embed bits of these “cleansers” and their different pieces and parts, then cool off and trap that shit in the pores of the skin? Lemme guess…

”it doesn't work like that”

Was thinking about washing in cold water, and it occurred to me that maybe perhaps the skin contracting and getting all those goose-bumps because you’re freezing your ass off, might be a design consideration. As it pertains to functionality. We’re trying to get stuff off our bodies, not get stuff in our bodies.

Or something
^Deadmau5 – Jaded || HD^

Well this is quite the eye opener. I only recently was pondering/wrote about arrays of aircraft because of some things that I saw back in 2013 and again in 2015, but I had no idea “they” were actually doing it. Makes sense that they are tho.

After watching the video below, it’s no fucking wonder that the UFO community has been shitting their pants lately. Trying to stay on the radar. Trying to stay relevant.

Things are about to get muddier in that area

You could bury all kinds of shit behind all kinds of crazy curtains with technology like this. It’s just too bad that the video has that dumb music on top. Would be interesting to hear what all those drones sound like.

^100-Drone Stock Show | Firefly Drone Shows^

That vid tickled my brain-ish type thingie, so I went to YouTube and searched for “drone array” (without quotes) and found this thing below from 7 years ago.

^A Swarm of Nano Quadrotors^

There actually wasn’t much at all on YouTube under “drone array”. In fact, pretty much nothing. There was a light show, and that swarm one above, and synchronized drone show, and MICRO DRONES KILLER ARMS ROBOTS – AUTONOMOUS ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, and drone flight over the Very Large Array, a mention of a drone tracking array, but only one mention of “array” with respect to drones.

Hrm...

Why is it that arrays of drones don’t seem to be referred to as “drone arrays”?

Also, on the vid about the drone tracking array, I noticed in the description that they

“had difficulty getting the DJI drones to work at 5.8 GHz”.

Someone only recently asked me about “5G” and what it is. But somewhat off on that topic, I’m wondering if maybe some military projects are lagging a bit, and maybe that’s why cell providers are having fits with getting “upgraded” to 5G? As far as I know, 4G is still a pipe dream, and it was “introduced” in 2009. Gotta get the important stuff out of that/those band(s), and at the same time make sure you remain well-entrenched in that band so you can keep track of who is doing what. Lots of data is pumping through the lower bands already, and I can imagine that cresting each band can be a challenge. Especially if you are simultaneously trying to monitor anyone who is cresting bands above your own capabilities.

Can't let the competition get too far ahead of you

*Not sure, Clicky… /smokes… should I go for the long or short answer?*

*Fair enough…*

The short answer is ‘Yes’ and as to why, perhaps an example of ‘meaningful coincidence’ may be helpful in this regard, Dear Reader. It happened today, in fact whilst I was writing this post. I’ll describe in bullet point form:

  • I am currently on a long weekend from work, which I booked off back in the summer because the date coincides with the deadline for submissions to Underdog Anthology 9;

  • Thoughtful Man had other ideas and planned on hiring a skip, so that I could spend part of my long weekend clearing the accumulated crap from the garden this weekend;

  • Boo! I was not looking forward to clearing the crap from the garden;

  • Earlier this week Thoughtful had to spend the skip money on emergency reupholstery on back seat of his taxi;

  • Yay! I didn’t have to spend time this weekend removing the crap from the garden;

  • Yesterday a skip appeared on our next door neighbour’s drive;

  • Thoughtful Man comes home from work this afternoon, whilst I am writing this post, and tells me that our next door neighbour had just offered us use of his skip;

  • The garden is cleared and its accumulated crap is now sitting in next door neighbour’s skip.

One Or Two Things…

Dear Reader, today is a momentous date at the LoL: Thing One and Thing Two have reached the Age of Majority; Loopy and Kit-Kat or ‘Lucifer’ and ‘Christ’ as I frequently referred to them whilst they were kicking the hell out each other and my womb 18 years ago, are celebrating their birthday…

*/lights up… They were scheduled to arrive on 11th September 2001… /drags… but popped out 20 daze early, Clicky… /streams smoke… That was fucking numbing, watching the twin towers fall, with tiny twins sleeping soundly in their rockers, by my feet…*

So, for a bit of fun, I thought I’d look at the 23rd August in history, to see what I could shamble up for such an auspicious date. And I’m gonna start with plane crash because of, well, because of a ‘Pointless sync’ that I told Cade about…

Roob tells Cade her pointless freckleton sync

*/flicks ash… Looks like her MP’s a Remoaner, Clicky… /drags… A bit too fond of a plane trip or two by the looks of it… /smokes…*

‘The Freckleton air disaster occurred on 23 August 1944, when a Consolidated B-24 Liberator of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) crashed into the centre of the village of Freckleton, Lancashire, England. The aircraft crashed into the Holy Trinity Church of England School, demolishing three houses and the Sad Sack Snack Bar. The death toll was 61, including 38 children.’

… Sixty eight years, or 816 months, after the Freckleton air disaster, there was another aerial crash. This time of a Ball-Lune…

‘On 23 August 2012, a hot air balloon crashed in stormy weather on the Ljubljana Marshes in central Slovenia, killing 6 of the 26 people on board.’

… The 23rd August was the last day on Earth for many Pompeians in AD79. Or maybe not…

 ‘Archaeologists in Italy have uncovered an inscription they say may show that the history books have been wrong for centuries.

‘Historians have long believed that Mount Vesuvius erupted on 24 August 79 AD, destroying the nearby Roman city of Pompeii.

‘But now, an inscription has been uncovered dated to mid-October – almost two months later.

‘Italy’s culture minister labelled it “an extraordinary discovery.”‘

… A mere 1,819 years after that, the date marks the start of the Southern Cross expedition, which ushered in Antarctic exploration and paved the way for the likes of Amundsen, Shackleton and Scott…

‘Despite the groundbreaking achievements in Antarctic survival and travel, Borchgrevink was never accorded the heroic status of Scott or Shackleton, and his expedition was soon forgotten in the dramas which surrounded these and other Heroic Age explorers. Roald Amundsen, conqueror of the South Pole in 1911, acknowledged that Borchgrevink’s expedition had removed the greatest obstacles to Antarctic travel, and had opened the way for all the expeditions that followed.’

Lashed To River Rocks

LAST TIME 1

Dear Reader, after being blown away by Jordan Peterson’s psychoanalysis of the animated movie Pinocchio last weekend, I persuaded Text US buddy, Cade, to remote viewing the good Doctor’s biblical stories lectures with me this week. It’s quite an undertaking as each of the talks we’ve listen to so far have been quite lengthy and thought provoking…

Frasier intense

*And completely fucking intense, yes! …/lights up… Although you know, Clicky… /drags…Frasier Crane was more Freudian… /streams smoke… Peterson is more Jungian like his brother Niles…* 

*Jung, hung and de Niles? …/smokes… Huh…*

… Then on Friday, I saw that LoL fav, John Lamb Lash, had a new talk out. Lashy has a completely different take on the origins of humanity, to the Bible’s, but cites many of the same influences on this thinking as Jordan Peterson does in his lectures…

‘The case for awe is also a case for humility. “Remain true to the earth,” Zarathustra implored. To stand in naked awareness in the presence of the earth, in silent knowing – this is awesome. Intimacy with the planet keeps us wild, undomesticated, unwilling to submit to social conditioning. In “On Reading and Writing,” Nietzsche wrote: “Untroubled, scornful, outrageous – that is how wisdom wants us to be.” Sophia (wisdom) loves those who preserve and protect her ways, women and men alike, warriors in the line of beauty. It could be objected that my obvious Nietzschean scorn for certain religious ideas compromises my judgment. But I am not the first to assert that religion (i.e., doctrine, rite, institution) is the enemy of genuine religious experience. C. G. Jung, Aldous Huxley, H. L. Mencken, Barbara Walker, and many others have made this observation, but no one has carried it through and backed up the argument in the way I do here.

‘It could also be objected that any expression of hatred is unacceptable in a book that purports to present spiritual values. I would reply that there is plenty of hatred circulating on this planet, and most of it seems to be coming from people who are devoutly religious. If humanity is filled with hatred, my personal share might act like a homeopathic dose against the general infection. I do not categorically reject hatred, or deny it a humane value. I hate a good many things: the rape of the earth, child abuse, sexual apartheid, the exploitation of youth, lies and hypocrisy, bad
literature, the consumer trance. This is my shortlist. But most of all I hate the enslavement and manipulation of the human spirit by false and perverted beliefs disguised in religious ideals and ethics. Hatred is an inevitable part of the human horror on this planet, but it can also be part of the cure. As Paracelsus said, the cure is in the dose.’

Sophia speaks

*To be fair, Clicky, humans are incredibly complex creatures… /taps ash… It takes a degree of sophistication to appreciate them…*

… So I listened to Lashy’s talk…

… Which was immediately followed by a most incredible ‘sync’ – news of humanity’s place of origin, according to Lashy, had broken in the media…

‘So far, there are several theories.

‘”Maybe more gas is falling into the black hole and that leads to higher amounts of accretion, which leads to it being brighter,” Do told a science publication.

‘There’s also the possibility that the black hole consumed a nearby gas cloud that had been documented nearby in 2014.’

*Whoa! That film is 75 years old?*

sophia explains

*/pmsl…*

… So it’s been a weirdly intense week, and no doubt next week will be equally as intense as I’ll be on hols, writing a tale of horror for Underdog Anthology IX. I have the title and a story idea, now all I have to do is write the bloody thing…

sophia speaks again

*Okay, Clicky… /stubs butt…*

Doo enjoy what’s left of your we-kenned, Dear Reader, and, as always, have a Song… 😉

 

River Rocks Friday

up there

*Hey! Don’t dust dump dose dere, Kicky… /sigh… Nevermind…*

Yesterday, Dear Reader, full of snotty summer cold and limply languishing on my Library sofa, I decided to invest my sick-note time in listening to the above lecture by Dr Jordan Peterson. It was based around the animated classic ‘Pinocchio’. And it was all Cade’s fault…

*/coughs… True, Kicky… /clears throat… Der Doc referenced Pinocchio in der stuff we lissend to earlier in da week. Snot all Cade’s fault, granted, but ‘e did start it yesderday with dose overnight DMs ‘e sent me…*

*/sniffs… Give a little whistle, yeah… /blows dose…*

*/thinks… Dat was one of der uvver little talk we lissend to, Kicky… /rolls eyes… Syncs…*

… Well, nearly all Cade’s fault, Dear Reader. MEROVEE Frank in the Red universe contributed as well…

Merovee Frank Shes Gone Nora and Natalie

*/sips cherry-Coke… Child lost in the Jung… /cough… jungal, and the body of a missing asdrofidisis found on a Greek Island, which was named for a famous fool… /gnaws lips…*

*/smiles… Dat was mum’s favwrit Beadles toon, Kicky…*

Roob asks Merovee Frank Cades Question

After replying to Frank, I decided to search for anything else the good Doctor might have said about the story of ‘Pinocchio’…

Mitchell Motherlode

… And he has…

7 hours later

*Ah… ah… ah…*

Monstro Sneeze

*Gesundheit! Yeah, a bid of a monster, Kicky…*

So, Dear Reader, if you fancy listening to the breakdown of a Gnostic story, with a Christianity overlay, and you have seven hours to spare, then I highly recommend you partake in the stack of videos that appear at the top of this post. Have a Song…

 

Missive From ‘Merica: Sunday Special

Dear Reader, having spent the past – just shy of – seven years immersed in ‘Synchromysticism’, it is my contention that ‘Synchronicity’ is in fact a language. So, it was really interesting to stumble across this video the other evening…

*/lights up… Imagine discovering the blueprints to the ‘Ark’… /drags… and then getting to build it… /streams smoke… And it’s fuckin’ round…*

Enjoy! ❤

*******

I am in a moving daze.

I guess I shouldn’t be nervous about moving, but I am.

Moving day is fast approaching.

And no, your eyes are not deceiving you in that image above, nor is it taking forever to load. Getting used to “smooth stuff”, then seeing something “less smooth”, can really fuck with your perception(s), eh?

^Better Off Alone^

We get destroyed because we refuse knowledge. That’s something the following video espouses. In a world where there is loads of hidden knowledge and/or knowledge that I’m told not to seek, I’m ultimately going to get the deep-six for not being more knowledgeable.

And what about all the fucks that intentionally keep knowledge secret? I’m not talking about who you are fucking, your annual income or what your FICO score is, but these bits of information that are tucked away in secure locations specifically for the purpose of keeping people in the dark and/or retaining power for themselves and their organization(s).

Which speaking of fucking, income and FICO scores, what are the odds that there are those who know those things about me? I’m not suggesting that I’m getting laid (because I’m not), nor that I have any money (I don’t), but I do have a FICO score.

Anyway, this doc is kinda dumb, it’s all “rah rah” about something or another but I’m not sure as to what, and I had to turn it off @ 21:21.

^THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE FOREVER TIME:#7 THE GOD KNOWLEDGE^

With that bullshit in mind…

Q: What is the first thing that people do with knowledge?

A: This little light of mine? I'm gonna let it shine?

Nope…straight to the bushel to hide that shit before someone tries to steal it and/or extinguish it. But before we get into copyrights and patents, franchising rights, ancillary rights, corporate espionage and all those wonderful financial perks, let’s get practical. If you suddenly know “the answer to life the universe and everything”, what in the hell are you to do with it?

It’s gonna take some time to figure that out, so burying your new found knowledge may be a matter of practicality more than anything else. After all, knowing how to melt lead isn’t really that big of a deal, especially when compared to the concept of removing melted lead from your face because some asshole dropped water into the crucible full of melted lead, which instantly caused the water to evaporate/become steam, which created an explosion that blew hot melted lead in your face.

Didn't think of that even being a possibility, did ya? 

So yeah, the difference between knowledge and wisdom is…time? Application(s)? Experience(s)?

^This Little Light of Mine Lyrics : Christian Hymns with Lyrics^

Yes, the story about the melted lead + water comes from real life. One day at school, I just so happened to be standing right next to a lead-melter, when a guy walks up and drops an unmelted piece of lead into the crucible, and this unmelted piece of lead had just been washed but not dried, so it had water on it. The water immediately turned to steam, this created a huge steam-bubble in the lead, and the whole mess exploded. One guy got melted lead on his face, one of my welding gloves got hot lead all over it, another guy got it on his arm and shirt, and the ceiling was covered in lead. BTW, the ceilings in this room were about 15 feet high, so this explosion was quite energetic. Who would have ever thought that a few drops of water could explode several pounds of melted lead? What’s that? You see no correlation in knowing everything and practical application(s) and/or actualizations in a causal universe?

When was the last time you went to one of these?

Party

I guess in America, there’s no real need. There’s two parties, they’re 24 hour/7 days a week affairs, and they’ll take anyone who’ll sign their forms and tow their lines.

This is kinda strange…

Now, that caught my eye because I immediately empathized with being in pain and feeling like a criminal for taking medication for it. Some of the pharmacies/pharmacists here in the US used to treat me like I was a criminal for being in a pain management program. You take your prescription in to the pharmacy, they see the medication your prescription is for, their face goes cold, they have to “check and see if they have any in stock” and many times say they don’t, even when they do have your medication, then they have to do 80 checks and verifications…

it's a totally humiliating experience

I think that was the point tho’: make the process of filling certain prescriptions non-cost effective + make the patient feel like complete and total shit. Anyway, if you’re smoking grass for pain, I can empathize. But what’s all this business about “Oklebueha N.A.C.” and membership?

 Sounds...native

Oklevueha NAC death toll

Rut roh!!! I get the feeling this is not about cannabis, and what in the fuck is the Cult Education Institute? Why is someone going to a doctor, to get medicine, from a church? I’m totally lost here. Is Uncle Sam not getting a cut or something? Getting grass from a doctor because it’s part of a church ritual?

/shrug
^Astrix & Avalon – Moonshine^

What is really strange to me  is where I started (empathy), and where I wound up (confusion). I mean, don’t most churches usually provide what you need for a particular service or sacrament or whatever.

Oklevueha Native American Church

OK…so…um…some dudes were tripping balls on peyote, and one dude gave another “permission” to “take peyote to the white man”? Yeah, I can see why some may see this “church” as being sketchy as fuck. There’s even a picture of some hand-scrawled note? Seems to me that you either got the juice, or you don’t. Can a Sioux Blessing be retracted? Surely there’s a caveat there in the event whitey gets out of control and starts acting a fool? White people are known for that kind of behavior after all.

^Saltwater (Original) by Chicane^

When I went to a Christian private school in 7th and 8th grade, one of the requirements of attending this school was that you be a member of a church and attend regularly. So in order to be in one group, you also had to be a member of another group. Lose your affiliation with one group, lose your affiliation with the other. So when my parents stopped going to church during my 8th grade year, I was in a bit of a quandary. This quandary was made even worse when my mother got a job playing the piano at a Methodist church. I started attending this church so that I could keep going to school. Problem was, there was a caveat. Ya see, this school I went to was a “Christian” school…

meaning, Baptist

There was some controversy regarding whether or not my attending a Methodist church actually counted as “active attendance in a church”, and the administration actively encouraged me to find a good, wholesome Christian church to attend since my soul was in jeopardy.

^Boney M – Rasputin 2017 Blue Remix^

I know, I know, as a Baptist, once you are saved you are saved forever and ever, and your soul can never again be in jeopardy. Baptists believe that Salvation is a gift that is given freely, accepted freely, and once obtained, it cannot be lost…

but there's a catch

Ya see, if you are really saved, like for really-real all the way saved, you won’t backslide or wander off the path because a saved soul will not depart from the path of Jesus. If you are saved, you will never drink beer, and more than that you will never even have an urge to drink beer. As such, if you want to drink a beer, you may not actually be saved, and if you actually drink a beer, you are most definitely not saved and you’d better get saved before you turn into a lush. You are passively taught to constantly question your salvation, even tho you are actively taught to NEVER EVAR question your salvation.

 Weird, eh? Digress
^Reeson – Anubis (original mix)^

What I’m primarily thinking about here is membership being requisite for membership. Being able to join one group only because you are a member of another group. Professionals. How the fuck do you get your foot in the door? Join a group.

Q: What organizations did Jesus belong to?

A: ?ó¿ó?

To be fair, he was number 13 (or number 1 depending on how you look at it) in a gaggle of miscreants that wandered around getting into trouble, so I guess that kinda counts as a group. Guess it only makes sense that we’d form our own groups based on that original group, and we do so in order to try and recapture that magic the original group produced. Kinda weird to think that a copycat anything would produce the same magic as an original group or original idea. In fact, it almost sounds counter-intuitive when you think about it.

^Skazi & Paranormal Attack – Opa (Official Audio)^

Ever heard of a television series called “Another Life”? Just saw someone talking about it on a forum, and they mentioned that in the very first episode of the series, there is “a male crew member on a space ship wearing stiletto  heels”. They then went on to rant about producers pandering to certain viewing demographics, and I cannot help but agree that stiletto heels on a space ship seems quite impractical. I mean sure, the character Klinger on the show M*A*S*H was cross-dressing in a war zone, but that was a comedy, so it was OK. A dude wearing “women’s footware” on a spaceship in a serious drama is just…fucked up.

*Triggered*

Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!

<yawn>

Wait, is this show even a drama? Does that matter?

^A normal day in Russia…^

‘Tis now Saturday morning, and I find it odd that I stumbled into a bunch of controversy last night regarding…groups. Mainly groups and the power(s) they wield. Shouldn’t be shocking tho, because isn’t that the point of groups? To wield power? Use that power against your foes?

In this case, it’s centered around some dude who may have stumbled onto a cure for cancer, and the battle that ensued as a result of this find. It would appear that there are those who aren’t real happy about their infrastructure(s) around cancer crumbling, and they also want a piece of this cancerous pie. Who in the FUCK would want a piece of cancer?

Food and Drug Administration

BTW, do not believe anything in that Wikipedia article, as all Wikipedia articles are fake and/or full of disinformation. That’s what I’ve been told anyway.

Burzynski Clinic

That’s where a lot of the controversy seems to start, and that rather dubious sounding Wikipedia page is only scratching the surface. There’s also a pretty good documentary on this dude, his practice, and what he’s been through, but I’ll let Roob add that somewhere if she so desires.

^Blastoyz – Mandala^

If you want to be somewhere, and where you currently at is not that somewhere you want to be, could it be said that your being in the one place you don’t want to be, is in fact the best starting point for you getting to where you do want to be?

That’s why I use Wikipedia articles, and have no plans to stop using them. Yes, Wikipedia itself is full of shitbirds and hacks who have their own agendas. But how is this different from anywhere else? Are you really trying to tell me that The Washington Post isn’t full of people who are on multiple payrolls? The Guardian? Pravda? China Daily? Hell, the news organizations themselves are on multiple payrolls via advertisers and special interest groups of all kinds, so why in the fuck wouldn’t their employees follow suit and rent out their services to the highest bidder(s)? Anyway, being in a bad place might sometimes help you get to where it is you want to be.

^Nicky Romero – Toulouse^

The only reason I can see groups wanting to be “the source” would be distributive in nature. You really don’t care what you are selling, you just want to be selling it. You want to be the place that people come to move merchandise, and you get a piece of everything.

This was going to originally be a blog post on my own blog, but circumstances have arisen to change that. I’m only mentioning this because the above may be a travesty for Roob to deal with since I didn’t write it with her in mind.

Meh, she'll tame the fuck out of it I'm sure

Good luck Roob, and God be with you in your editorial efforts.

Oh, and this is blog post #135 I’ve written for The LoL. Too bad it wasn’t #137 – the number 137 has been appearing a lot over the past week or so.
