Descartes and the general rule of uncertainty

I'm drunk, please bear with me.

When I'm drunk, I do one of five things:

1. Find a way to smoke pot so I can get more fucked up (tonight it failed, I have no pot or friends who have pot).

2. Watch youtube music videos or debates with Christopher Hitchens.

3. Play Starcraft 2, hoping to finally make it to the silver league, which by now I'm thinking is fucking impossible since higher ranked bronze league motherfuckers are ruining my shit, my confidence, and in some weird way ruining my reputation in general.

4. Read my posts and the reviews that were written.

5. Not do my homework.

Tonight I chose number four since I couldn't find any pot. Specifically, I chose the bit I wrote about atheism (as pointed out by one contributor, this certainly isn't a proper noun so I left it lower-case, the way it's supposed to be).

I think I failed to communicate what exactly I meant by what I said. I'm not apologizing here (unless you're someone who fucking raped me with your god damned observers hovering over every fucking mineral field that I could possible expand my base to, then systematically wearing me out until I couldn't harvest any more minerals, you fucking douchebag fuck!). Fuck you forever you cheap asshole.

I think people don't understand exactly where I'm coming from, and in my case it is the scary place of uncertainty. Fear not! There can be happiness here, folks. Certainty is for the religious (aka, stupid), that need this certainty to give their lives structure, and answer their nagging inside questions. That, or don't know any different.

I don't want to make this long. And I realize that in order to get to know someone, it takes a lot of time and, in my view, personal, real-life, one-on-one communication with other human beings that you call friends who support you and allow themselves to be supported by you. Right? We don't have that here... it's a forum and an experiment in media, or whatever the fuck it's supposed to be. To me, it's an alternative to facebook, which I think is fundamentally destroying the world.

Listen: Read Descartes meditations. I hate to tell anyone what to do, but I encourage people to think for themselves, and challenge their own thoughts. If you're religious, take refuge that Descartes eventually caved to the Catholic church toward the end of his meditations. If you are religious and unable or unwilling to see, after reading his work, how little or nothing we know, then you'll probably find comfort in some sort of validation by a philosopher. To everyone else, the smart people, the ones that will rule the world, read: understand: listen: challenge: learn. Don't take it from me, take it from the father of modern philosophy.

As a side note: If Descartes were alive today, I'd place him in front of a computer loaded with SC2, ignore all of his questions about what this all is, and force him to play a multi-player match with me.

While he's figuring out how to control a mouse and what all these keys on a keyboard mean, I'd fucking rape him with a simple marine-overload strategy.

And I'd tell everyone I knew how I raped Descartes, the father of modern philosophy, at SC2. Take that to the fucking bank you silver-leagued fucks!

Pot and philosophy are ALWAYS a good combination.
Don't ask me why 'cause I forgot.

Mmmm I have pot. What usually changes in our house isn't the quantity but the quality.

Apparently there is pot growing in the woods a mile or so from my house. It is not mine, nor is it on my property. It's planted in rows so it's probably somebody's, but I don't know whose it may be so as far as I'm concerned it's yours. Have at it.

Fair enough, I suppose.

Still, Japan > South Korea. If you have to be living in the Orient, I mean...

It sounds too exciting for full comprehension.

Most of the time, reruns of games...sometimes live matches...where you're just staring at the screen and then it will flip to two sweaty stressed out little Korean kids with joysticks. In the bottom right corner there are always two announcers as well who comment on every move by grunting and saying "NAY" "NAY!" "NAY"...or "ANNNIIIIII" and more grunting...and sometimes words that end in -imnika. It's all very interesting.

I am living in a place where there is a local Starcraft channel on the TV.

Holy shit CJ. That's deep!

Everything in moderation IMO - If I have stuff to do, I stay straight.

Personally, I've always thought that my accomplishing so many things in my life at the age of 28 (29 in a couple weeks...sigh) is due to my expressly avoiding pot for pretty much my entire existence.

Also, your pseudo-intellectual masturbation annoys me. Speaking as an agnostic, I can almost sympathize with you, but your crassly insulting depiction of humanity in general reflects a mind simultaneously over-educated and under-utilized.

In my opinion, true maturity begins when you learn to accept and love humanity in spite of its many flaws. After all, the same people who owned slaves also wrote the U.S. Constitution.

+0 'cause I plays the video gamez too (although I refuse to plunk down $60 for 1/3 of a goddamn game)

I have plenty of pot.

You should spend your time finding pot instead of playing starcraft 2. Much more efficient use of time.

Homer: Mmm ... open-faced club sandwich.
