If I end up quarantined at home, at least I'll have the pool, the hot tub, the retroarcade, the dart board, the disc golf hole, and the theater-shed to keep me company. There's that, at least.

It's an exact science, being carefully, correctly wrong.

"Now some people would say, 'This glass is empty.' But other people would say, 'This glass hasn't been filled yet, but when it has, I'll like what's in it!' Those are the people we're looking for. The people who look on the bright side. The people who want to like things." --Michael Peppe, "AD"

Just remember...you might have Slack, but you don't have Doc Ellis Dropping LSD And Pitching A No-Hitter Slack.

Note how he effortlessly slaps Chick-Fil-A on the drive-by.

If you cannot afford a devil’s advocate, one will be provided for you

From HN discussion - "This is why I use ad blockers and a pi-hole server" (news.ycombinator.com/item?id=2)

This is GDPR in action. Wow.

What do you have to lose but your sense of false slack and acceptance of your meager lot in life?

Hookt on "Bob" werkt fer me!

In 2013 I sent "Bob" $35.

In three years I went from being a wage slave for $10 an hour ($20,800 annually), owning nothing and living like a monk of some shitty religion to making $26 an hour ($52,000 annually), and in three more years I've got a new job selling the crap I used to get on my knees and install for 20 long years. And they're going to pay me $70,000 to start, not counting sales commissions, bonuses from the factories called spiffs, and much more...

’Spiritual but not religious’ is a phrase you hear some people use, and good for them. I think of myself as RELIGIOUS but not “religious-religious.” That is, the parts I like of anything are happily wed to my views and the parts I don’t like of anything are unspeakable heresy. Ten million short duration personal saviors, or one, or none, based on your whim! That is the promise of J. R. “Bob” Dobbs makes good on when you join The Church of the SubGenius.


Because sometimes you need your daily Slack pep talk to be dark and ambient.
