I was going to post this as its own node, but decided against it. If I came across this in, say, 4 years, it would appear glaringly dated. So I went with the daylog.
The E2 musings of a Lowly Initiate after 1 month of Residency:
- If E2 needs cash so badly, why doesn’t it let the EDB eat Klaproth in a highly touted public execution held in a pay-per-view room? The profits could very well draw Don King’s attention. I know I'd pay $5 to see it.
- If “XP is an imaginary number” which “the administration does not take...all that seriously,” why do the Everything Gods retain the power to bless and curse?
- How does Jet-Poop always know when I’m masturbating to that sexy caricature of his?
- If Butterfinger McFlurry is a 51C! example of raising the bar, what the hell was the bar at before Butterfinger McFlurry?
- And how does spending ridiculous hours earning your bullshit by raising the bar with witty and erudite write-ups earn you the right to post the most banal crap you can think of?
- Why does Demeter have such confidence in the noding abilities of Guest User?
- The Great Node Wars -
- Conservative vs. Liberal noders.
- Factual vs. GTKY noders.
- Ancient vs. New noders.
I say the Gods take a page from Plato's Republic and create the perfect E2 by trying to expel the Wonkoalition. At least their retorts would be much more entertaining than the blathering whines of the previous Node Wars ( the current one being no exception).
Hmmm. In their msgs, several everythingers think that I've got something against the Everything Gods, that I'm a "newbie" sounding off. Not so...entirely. Hence, I've added a clarification from my homenode, as it's damn applicable to this daylog.
DoubleD’s Official Take on the Old "Cabal" Noders vs. Newbies and their Allies Noder War:
To the Cabal: I bow out to Marilyn Manson, who said “You cannot sedate the things that you hate,” and Princess Leia, who said “the more you tighten your grip, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.” Tyranny feeds rebellion.
To the Newbies: Shut the fuck up. I’m sick of reading your relentless whines.
A Note for Further Understanding (shameless ripped from Full Metal Jacket):
Dem Bones: You write "NUKE THEM TO HELL" on your helmet and wear a NEWBIES RULE button on your uniform. What’s that supposed to be? Some kind of sick joke?
DoubleD: I think I was trying to suggest something about the duality of man.
Dem Bones: The what?
DoubleD: The duality of man. The Jungian thing sir.
Dem Bones: Who's side are you on Initiate?
DoubleD: Ours sir!
Dem Bones: Then why don't you jump aboard for the big nodefest?
DoubleD: Yes sir!
Dem Bones: Son, all I've ever asked of my noders is that they obey my guidelines as if they're The Word of God. We are here to create write-ups because inside every nodeshell is a node trying to get out.
