This was very enjoyable, thank you posting it.
If others haven't seen this already, they may find it similarly engaging: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2015/11/23/conversion-via-twitter-westboro-baptist-church-megan-phelps-roper
Actually, I think I know about that because somebody else posted it here last year.
So I ain't a writer by any training, but I was under the impression that quotations of the spoken word followed a separate grammar. That grammar is designed to capture details of how the person said something. For example, "Yes, I feel similarly" (and here I follow @goobster's rule) conveys that the speaker said it in a way that separated "Yes" and "I feel similarly". Two ways that could have happened are with a pause or by raising the pitch of "I". Meanwhile "Yes I feel similarly" conveys that speaker spoke in a monotone, or in a breathless rush of words.
That's worrying. I've been off the pills for two months. Therefore, I think I'll show these posts and some other free-writing examples to my therapist and psychiatrist. Thanks for telling me, I appreciate it.
Thanks for the advice. I don't think I clearly communicated myself, though. I don't want to uncrazy it. I very much want what's crazy to stay definitely and clearly crazy.
But I can see how it looks like something else to you, and I will accept your version as a version worth investigating.
- The more time you dwell in "here's why I capsized, no really it makes sense" the more we see you pushing on the mast.
What makes me itchy about this is that it sounds like you're telling me to stop introspecting. I don't want to do that. I don't want to be the person who thinks they're always right, who doesn't monitor their own behavior, and who makes categorical judgements without considering evidence to their contrary. The way I see it, my willingness to question myself and expose my thinking to others' points of view is of bedrock importance. It's what I rely on to keep me kind and intelligent. If I don't try to figure myself out, aren't I becoming less of a good person?
I haven't seen any porn here either, but 10 minutes in the FAQ and the terms of service didn't find me anything involving porn or sex or adult stuff, so it could show up some time.
If it does, you should definitely check out Hubski's filtering features in detail. This place gives you tools to moderate the entire site just for yourself. You can filter (aka block) specific people, tags, and domain names. You can also mute specific people, which prevents them from commenting on your posts (and possibly your comments? not sure).
Sigh, I need to install Flash to enjoy it. Nope.
My memories need to be updated to HTML5. Might look into that.
Oh yeah, no, it's about a lot more than that. But I do think it's fair to say that it does a little bit more than touch on transhumanism when (spoiler) ɐu ᴉɯdoɹʇɐuʇ dloʇ doᴉuʇ ᴉs ʇɥɐʇ ʇɥǝ dɹoʇɐƃouᴉsʇ nupǝɹƃoǝs ɔouʌǝɹsᴉou ʇo ɐ ɟnllʎ ɯǝɔɥɐuᴉzǝp qopʎ˙
The Dark Science storyline probably has the most right now, but the Hob storyline is also significant.
I once had an acquaintance who was into this. He was planning on embedding small magnets into his fingertips, so he could feel magnetic fields. So far as I am aware, he changed his mind, because it would make working with electronics basically impossible.
