Hello
Hello all.
Finally re-registering because the new forum software cannot deal with the awesome powerfull unicodes in my old user name.

Nostalgia for the Socrates Era, and Dave Hawkins becoming more like Socrates every day made me do it.
Which is strange. I used to be quite sure that I have a genetic defect that prevents the gland that makes nostalgia hormone from working.

Ah, the good old days of ... ... of ... ... damn, I can even remember what I used to call that twit.
Guess I'm entering my good old days.
Well, at least I can remember any bad old days.
Can't remember the good old ones either but no matter.
Would someone please change these sheets?

Welcome home.

Are we there yet?

Welcome back to the shit show.  As you see we've tied Dave and Trump together in their own thread.
I was Mike PSS until the change-over.

Hello.
Welcome back.
Just out of curiosity...
Is there some significance worth getting into of your chosen username and/or avatar?

Visually speaking, I like the repetition of au in Saunt Taunga's user name.
Astronomically speaking, I like the reference to distance.
Chemically speaking, I like the reference to metal.
However, if au has anything to do with the Australian internet speed, you have my sympathy.

Actually...
Saunt Tauga is the Arbre analog to Alan Turing.
Saunt is the Arbre analog for our Saint, except that Saunts are notable scientists not superstitious muddleheads.
I code for a living so if I would need a patron saint it could be Turing.

Name is from Anathem.

Exactly.
The avatar is Benedict Cumberbatch as Turing as seen through the Prisma app filter called "server.com".

So, Anathem.
A novel by Neal Stephenson, that explores parallel universes, among other things.
Arbre is a parallel Earth where the scientists are locked up in concents, an analog to Earth's monasteries, complete with a monastic lifestyle. The Arbre scientists are locked up because they kept inventing creepy stuff like atom bombs. With a few exceptions they are not allowed technology more complicated than blackboards.

The parallels between Arbre and Earth, in parallel universes, are the result of osmosis of platonic ideals, called cnoöns on Arbre, between adjacent universes.

I liked that book quite a bit.

Ah, yes, thanks.

I have sometimes wondered if Sucky thinks back fondly of me.
Oh, wait, another example of why they put corks on my forks.

OKA ... ... damn, can't even remember that. What were we talking about anyway?

Fun fact: When Socrates had not yet run away, I entertained the the idea of creating a sock called Thelenes, the Arbre analog for Socrates. (The real one, not the befuddled simpleton that posted here)

Pterosaurs to birds (Archeopterix is a Chinese fake!). Plesiosaurs to whales. Neanderthals to white people, chimps to black people, orang-oetans to Asians.

Good times.

This sock would be tricking him into thinking it agreed with him.

For enhanced hilarity to those of sound mind.
