Episode 83: Just The 160,000 Of Us

READERS: John Toast, Portaxx, STOG, Boots Raingear, Bunnybread, Isfahan, and Lemon

Edited by Portaxx

Some people believe that it's poor form to make fun of people with legitimate mental issues. We have a slightly different ethical stance on the matter, mostly centered around the fact that Connie Marshall makes us all giggle. But anyway, if you were to have this standard, where would you draw the line? If people with schizophrenia are off-limits, what about people who don't have schizophrenia, but pretend like they do? Wouldn't that just be a different kind of mental disorder? And if those people were banging on about how they're being persecuted by the "singlets", wouldn't that drain any compassion you might otherwise feel? To test all of these, we're exploring Multiple Systems - a complicated architecture drawn by people whose brains are basically a television with a hyperactive remote. This week, we're running out of voodka.

Just realized that the person who maintained a blog for each headmate did that because the headmates are always hanging out in the room, but there's only 1 computer, so they have to take turns.

I'm reviving this comment section to state that one of my friends, to whom I have never discussed this podcast, just linked me this episode, claiming it to be one of the funniest things she's ever heard.

For a second, I legitimately thought I accidentally left itunes on in the background. I was not expecting the F+.

But I'm also happy that I know a new convert.

Hey uh.

Remember Bunnybread talking about someone wanting to marry themselves and being sad that they couldn't?

Apparently the dude who wrote that "coming out as multi" post... uh...

Yeah... From reading the first few paragraphs I think that's just a joke! They don't talk anything like tumblr crazies, for one.

I’m an atheist and Mac is Christian, so we’d chosen together a simple non-denominatio nal chapel, a womb-like place with stained glass figures of great women.

God I hope it's not just a joke. I really want them to have a fight, later, about whether they will raise their children religiously or not.

When one of your headmates claims to be psychic, I'm always willing to believe them! *heavy amounts of sarcasm*

Well, they can read the other headmates' minds, and they'll all vouch for it, so obviously they can read minds!

Oh my god the comment I just posted posted a trigger warning for use of the word "f*ck,"

OH god... Fuck... I - I remember- no I SEE it now, all over again. Our guys were stationed in some forest with an unpronouncable name, in Vietnam. We were all on edge, and the beasts and the plants and the wind sang a hellish tune whenever we least expected it. It was 9:20 NO 9:28 and 40 seconds when I heard something move in a bush right next to my goddamn face. I fired wildly. bits of wood and leaves and... blood flying all over the place. We moved away the bits of canopy that hadn't been shredded by gunfire and saw a Vietnamese kid... Musta been, what 14, 13... 10? He was barely alive and as I bent down to... to... I asked him his name.
He told me his name was Fuk.
Next time trigger warning that shit asshole.

I'll put a trigger warning too, just in case."

ONE MINUTE YOU’RE LOOKING UP YOUR NAME IN A TAG, AND YOU’RE IMPRESSED BY GOOD ART, AND THEN YOU SEE PORN OF YOURSELF AND IT JUST THROWS THE MOOD RIGHT OUT THE F*CKING WINDOW. NO I DO NOT WANT TO LOOK AT MYSELF DOING SOMETHING LIKE THAT WITH MY FRIENDS. AND FOR ANOTHER THING, THOSE ARE HUMAN F*CKING THINGS, AND I’M NOT HUMAN, SO THAT’S REALLY SH*TTY LOGIC IN THE FIRST PLACE. THE UNIVERSE HATES ME, I’M SURE OF IT.

Hey guys I found a girl who's a Hitlerkin

My admission
I decided to make a new blog because it’s finally time to get this off my chest. I’ve been reading a lot of tags about fictives and otherkin and fictionkin and always knew there was something strange about me. But it took me finding the existance of factives to realise who I am.

At first I thought maybe I was transethnic german, or or a guy stuck in a girls body, but I don’t have those feelings all the time maybe only half the time. and at those times I feel irrational hatred toward all sorts of peopole who basically aren’t white. It took learning about more history for me to realise who I am. I’m a factive.

My headmate is Adolf Hitler.

I guess you could call me hitlerkin?

It’s not something I want but it’s something I need to admit to the world so here goes.

trigger warnings: use of the word “backstabbing”

Are there folks that freak out when people even use aggressive terms in obviously figurative, non-literal ways? So if someone says "The loud airplane drowned out our conversation" some other shit screams "Oh God! Drowning! It takes me back to that one time I saw Titanic in the theater and Jack totally drow-I can't even say it!!!!!"

Obviously the tumblr way would be to claim that it reminded them of their OWN death because one of their headmates is the ghost of Jack Dawson.

It's common in TV shows Tumblr to kill off characters headmates that aren't a ratings an attention draw.

If I translate this into English it comes out as "I got sick of pretending to have so many people in my head, so I made up a bullshit story to "get rid of them all". Also, I forgot the things I invented about the fictional characters that I pretended to have in my head, so I'll avoid your question."

sounds legit.

Not sure if anyone mentioned it yet, but the watchful-entity post reblogged an outed troll once known as kavitya on their blog. It was a group of people making fun of multiples, otherkin, etc. They put on a great show but unfortunately their blog is gone.

kavitya wasn't a troll, prince-koyangi was. kavitya posted several pictures of herself and had real life friendships ("Had" being the operative word) with other people on tumblr.

Come on, guys, Occam's Razor. The person who blogs about being oppressed because of fake people in her head could be mindful of the products which go into certain flavors of Dorito and she could be making enough vegan funnel cakes to get up to 300 pounds...

...or she could still just be a person who feels compulsions to lie for the attention it brings in.

Quoting Neal:
My vegan ex-podcast partner says the Sweet Chili Doritos are vegan, but not the other flavors.


Does this mean they stopped using beef extract?


According to my Google-fu, it's only that specific flavor. Since there are eleventyfuckzil lion flavors of Dorito to be found, if getting the specifically vegan one matters to you, just remember it's the one in the purple bag.
