I was praying this morning for a miracle, governed by the principles in the Special Theory of Prayerism (STOP). My research on this field continues. Anyway, I wasn't too specific about the miracle, so practically anything could count. Taking into account the fact that prayers exceed the speed of light, I thought perhaps that maybe time was reversible for them as well. Then it hit me, last night I watched a video on youtube. And today I woke up to find a new article at grey lining.
So, my prayer about 4 this morning got me a miracle from before then, and one from after then. It's helpful to understand how prayer really works so as to exploit it to one's advantage.
The CFI talk Twatson gave is now available to the public. (But comments are heavily moderated and pre-screened by CFI. What is it with all these fucking retards and their censorship? PZ does it. Twatson does it. CFI does it. Why is it that all of the people who are "right" are the ones having to fucking censor everyone and their mother? Why are the evil people like me censoring no one?)
Anyway, Twatson goes on to tell us just how ignorant Stef McGraw is. Yes, stupid young girl. The video link which I was originally given starts a little too late in the game to catch Twatson's gambit. I've explained this before, but apparently, some people are slow on the uptake.
Twatson is a communications major. She knows how to say what needs to be said without saying it, or spreading it out over just long enough a period of time that the contradictions she necessarily has to have aren't noticed. Her work relies extremely heavily on contradiction; she has a different standard to be judged by than she demands you use to judge whoever this week's enemy is - always. Plus, a lot of people who listen to her are idiots. The link I was sent starts at about 12:30 or something. This is minutes too late for the set up that ruins her point to start off with.
Scroll back to about 9:35. The man broke away from the group she was in (but they'd never spoken to one another, and this group was all of like 5 or 6 people according to pictures!), and gets on the elevator with her and then says, "don't take this the wrong way." Twatson has some commentary on what that really means, like when your friends starts off with saying, "I'm not a racist, but . . ."
So, listen to that. Then zip ahead to the 12:30ish mark where she starts off saying that she's calling Stef McGraw out, "[Twatson] wanted to use this as an example not to embarrass this person, but to point out that we have a serious problem when young women are this ignorant about feminism."
So, when other people say "don't take this as . . ." it's to be taken as a lie. When Twatson says it though, you should take it as truth. How does this work? How is one justifiable and the other not? What distinguishes one from the other? Oh, right. She's honest and men aren't.
As a bonus, here are some videos on our research into prayerism!

[Edit for some ruminations and wanderings of my addled mind]
I thought it fitting to edit in a quote from Sophocles' immortal Oedipus Rex. Why? Well, the Greeks had a keen sense of irony, and it's befitting this whole litany of bullshit. I remember studying the Greeks as a child, and reading them to help flesh out my Latin lessons. Some of it's kind of lost to the vicissitudes of time from when I studied and today, but certain phrases from my youth have modeled my life in large fashion. Notably, it influenced Babblical writers as well, "pride cometh before a great fall" and that kind of fortune cookie rendering of the better written aphorisms the Greeks beforehand had written.
The tyrant is the child of prideThis was written along the times of Peleponnisian War, a war of antiquity starting around 431 BCE. Oedipus was written and originally performed in about 429 BCE. Well, it was performed then, so we can imagine that it was written before its first performance. I'm no scholar in this field, but I'm sure production time in a period before e-mail took a bit, but I'll just for the sake of ease say 429. 2500ish years of Sophocles' future has faded into our past since he penned those words. The counsel remains as wise today as it did back then, and people would do well to stop forgetting it. It is proved true generation upon generation, era upon era, epoch upon epoch.

recklessness and vanity
until from his high crest headlong
he plummets to the dust of hope
