Kibology is like Discordianism without the conspiracies, plus it works
better on the net. And there are more geeks. Subgenii aren't nearly
as happy-go-lucky as Kibologists, and many of them are serious about
the CotSG as a religion. Subgenii also don't watch as much TV as
Kibologists. At their worst, Subgenii are bitter and marginally
psychotic. At their best, Subgenii are frenetically gutbusting and
abstrusely sage simultaneously. The Subgenii, for all their cynicism,
are attempting to deal with the constraints of human acceptance and
invoke a state of transcendent mundaneness, AKA Slack, on earth,
making the most of a bad deal. Kibologists don't feel the same time
constraints and are content to continue a laid-back strategy of
cultural cross-hatching. Subgenii use the accidents of culture in an
attempt to transcend culture. Their one concession to conventional
discourse seems to be the tendency for IRC devivals to devolve into
discussions of their favourite rock bands.
To see the contrast in action, compare how kibologists and subgenii
follow up to this post.
That wasn't an essay, but WTF.
