From my slsk PM system

I thought that at least some of the Of Thespiae readership would be interested:

[00:25][BlakbirdzejA] this is not reality, men and woman are both virtualized energy simulaters, theres no hell or heaven, paradise is stolen, you ppl are not working gettin anything progresssed, theres no evolution here, your whole lie-fe is just a scam……. only 6 real beings are here and im one of them, refusal to follow directions from me will lead to death, reality is far off for anyone most likely terminated for ever… blakbird


Want to help me expose the matrix with our little friend Blackbird? Want to make sure I at least have a pot to piss in? Please consider donating to my moving expenses.

About Ruadhán McElroy

Ruadhán has been a traditional Hellenic polytheist for about a decade, and has also maintained devotions to Eros and Apollon most of that time; his status as a devotee of Nyx is more recent. He also paints, makes music, makes jewellery, and writes novels set in the Mod Revival (UK) and Swampie (Oz) subcultures of the 1980s. He also gets a lot of odd little experiences that he jokes will forever render him an insufferable Goth.

Because, sometimes, situational depression is funny:

[19:41] Ruadhán: Well, no suicide for today, either. In fact, it looks like I’m good for the rest of the week.
[19:42] Renee: Hey…I’m sorry I wasn’t much of a conversationalist yesterday…I was in some pain and not much good. But I’m glad to hear you’re not going to kill yourself.
[19:42] Renee: I was worried about you after you signed off, and relieved to see you’d posted to twitter in the middle of the night
[19:43] Ruadhán: It was funny — last night, I decided to take it up with The Magic 8-Ball:

“Should I kill myself?”
Yes. Definitely.
o_O “OK… best two out of three… Should I kill myself?”
Yes. Definitely.
O_o “OK…. Are there powerful Gods out there hoping my response to the 8-Ball would be contrarian in nature?”
Yes. Definitely.

[19:44] Renee: wow
[19:44] Ruadhán: Yes, when they make a film about my life, that scene is staying in.
[19:45] Renee: 🙂
[19:46] Ruadhán: Furthermore, how embarrassing would it be if people somehow found out that I had killed myself on the grounds that *The Magic 8-Ball* said I should? My ego just couldn’t deal with it.
[19:46] Renee: that would be quite embarrassing
[19:48] Ruadhán: I know! I mean, OK, if the entrails say so, well, that’s different — there’s a whole ritual involved for that. On the other hand, a magic 8-ball costs $6 at K-Mart and even a four-year-old has the arm-strength to operate it.
[19:48] Renee: LOL

And I decided to post with this today because I’ve been watching a lot of ROME and figured that this kind of post would be a nice way to show that, yes, there are still people even today who honestly believe that the Theoi are a part of even such every-day things.
