@onan Having a Subgenius for a friend is obviously a good thing. Many overlook the value in a Subgenius enemy though. Going toe to toe with a fellow member of the church will make you a thousand times stronger than fighting with any number of dupes from the Con!
"For we let our young men and women go out unarmed, in a day when armor was never so necessary. By teaching them all to read, we have left them at the mercy of the printed word. By the invention of the film and the radio, we have made certain that no aversion to reading shall secure them from the incessant battery of words, words, words. They do not know what the words mean; they do not know how to ward them off or blunt their edge or fling them back; they are a prey to words in their emotions instead of being the masters of them in their intellects. We who were scandalized in 1940 when men were sent to fight armored tanks with rifles, are not scandalized when young men and women are sent into the world to fight massed propaganda with a smattering of "subjects"; and when whole classes and whole nations become hypnotized by the arts of the spell binder, we have the impudence to be astonished. We dole out lip-service to the importance of education--lip- service and, just occasionally, a little grant of money; we postpone the school-leaving age, and plan to build bigger and better schools; the teachers slave conscientiously in and out of school hours; and yet, as I believe, all this devoted effort is largely frustrated, because we have lost the tools of learning, and in their absence can only make a botched and piecemeal job of it."

In my youth I listened to minimalistic synth music from Germany, Neue Deutsche Welle, the new German wave. I did a dadaists take on that "Pass mal auf!"
So twice now we went to the sportsball and entered The Park through the Team Store, and both times we went to our seats and watched The Game without ever having our virtual tickets Scanned. One time they asked to see Tickets upon entering the Store, but any old screen shot would have sufficed. Quoth the Attendant, They will Scan it Inside.
Not sayin' you could just walk into a game, but we just walked right on in to those two.
Being friends with or enemies with a particular fellow SubGenius, or having a particular SubGenius be friends with you or enemies with you... none of these are the wrong way to be a SubGenius.
The ONLY wrong way to be a SubGenius is to never send your membership fee to JOIN...

Last week, by the powers of Slack, I traded 5 vintage concert shirts for enough money to purchase a brand new MOOG Grandmother. One of those shirts was the super rare Jack Officers shirt, but it’s with a good collector now and not just aging in my closet. The synth arrived today and I’m just starting to scratch the surface of the hell I’m about to unleash on your ears in a couple months. May the slack be with you and with your dispirit.
