Discordian lesson

Today I remembered an event by Tim: The discordian lesson on 2005-11-27 somewhere in Berlin.

It was an interesting lesson about the discordianism and the religion itself with many examples and backgrounds.

"Discordianism is not just a religion; it is a mental illness!"

ddate

Please go into your shell and type:
basti@Woody:~$ ddate
Today is Setting Orange, the 59th day of Confusion in the YOLD 3172
	    
I didn't know before that ddate exists in my favourite distribution. This little program shows the discordian date. It's normally part of util-linux or sys-apps/util-linux.

Because I had a look yesterday on Tim's user page on the Wikipedia, I figured out the interesting page about the discordianism.

"It has been described as both an elaborate joke disguised as a religion,
and as a religion disguised as an elaborate joke."

But if you want to learn more about it, please also read the articels about principia discordia, fnord and mindfuck.
