Apparently Naming The Dwarf Planet Wasn't Enough

Now the Discordians are whining that the symbol for the dwarf planet Eris should be a ridiculous symbol they call The Five Finger Hand Of Eris: it is a symbol which depicts a somewhat abstracted hand giving the finger to the viewer. They've gone as far as starting an online petition calling for the inane symbol to be labeled on to the dwarf planet in scientific circles.

The problem in this situation is that scientists don't have time for stupid word games and pretentious philosophizing about the arcane significance of the number 23 - they are busy with actual work. These scientists, being unfamiliar with concepts as far out as Discordianism, will not realize that this is a one of their pranks and will actually waste time and money in the consideration of and, finally, rejection of the frankly ludicrous idea. If they seriously consider the notion perhaps we should consider changing the symbol of Pluto to the Disney Dog.

But I'm sure the Discordians would love that.

After some careful consideration of the idea that there is actually someone out there that gives a shit about trying to fuck with discordians.

I call bullshit on this entire blog. It's one of the PD asshats playing devil's advocate.

Shhh, neo.
You have no idea what your talking about dude.
Your really not prooving to anyone how clever you are by mentioning this fact, I could dare say it's actually quite the reverse...

Considering that pluto was *named* after the disney dog, its only fair that disney get more advertising money by putting that big D symbol on the moon so that were forced to think about all the great movies disney has given us like bambi, and all the respectable music artists they have produced like The Insane Clown Posse, whom themselves have their own religious system which everyone knows is far superior to discordianism.

I do not converse with people from Sex Magic Cults.

A Google search for "Sex Magic Cults" turns up only 7 results. Central Scrutinizer, I think you may be sorely mistaken with your notion of Sex Magic Cults. They simply do not exist. If they did, there would be a hell of a lot more results when I Google that phrase in quotes. In all likelihood, you were the one who coined the phrase "Sex Magic Cults", Central Scrutinizer. Either there exists a massive Conspiracy to suppress all knowledge about Sex Magic Cults by hiding it from Google, or they are just a figment of your deluded imagination.

Here's a news flash: Google is not the beginning and the end of research.

" . . . you are not my target audience. Kindly move along."

"I do not converse with people form sex magic cults"

That means "means I don't talk to people who prove me wrong or disagree with me."

You truly are the superior human being.
