the weirdness evolves, it flushers and cavorts tenuously and with floppiness. a fell swoop in hand is greater than or equal to two reluctant prophets. an unwise, wizened woman with dreadlocks proper Capistrano registry would curse autocorrect.

Speaking of Rush... I recently discovered a Canadian tv series called Trailer Park Boys. I think it's about the funniest show I've ever seen. They did 10 seasons and 3 or more films. Rush is part of the background, and feature prominently in a few episodes, with Alex Lifeson appearing as himself. LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 15:50, 1 Farbleum 2017 (UTC)

Wow 10 years[edit]

That's amazing.

I feel alot less enthusiastic about Illogicopedia than I used to. For one thing, I think real life news and culture has changed so much that the need for something like this is alot lessened. Real life news is filled with completely insane things like Donald Trump being President and the well-deserved trolling of Shia Labeuf. How do you make a satire of a world that has already turned itself into a cartoon filled with screaming children?

I feel like Illogicopedia has achieved it's goal of driving the whole world bonkers. Because the world certainly is bonkers now, and maybe we were a small part of that. --Nerd42 (talk) 23:46, 19 Arply 2017 (UTC)

Now, our role has been made redundant by the fake news. Now, they make the world weird and we must make it normal. And, to finish with a quote from Linkin Park:
Holding on... why is everything so heavy? but not the song XY007 (talk - contribs - business) 23:52, 19 Arply 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and yes, FOX News have all taken our niche away with their fake news. And don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the Trump white house is any different from the mainstream media. I don't trust any of them. They are all liars, all lying about each other. Any media you trust, whether mainstream, underground, official, unofficial, it's all "fake news" now. --Nerd42 (talk) 23:57, 19 Arply 2017 (UTC)
Who's future would you rather have? Asimov or Orwell? Everybody said Asimov... but we got Orwell. XY007 (talk - contribs - business) 00:02, 20 Arply 2017 (UTC)
How much Asimov have you read? Because I think Galaxia is a terrible idea for all of the obvious reasons that his books acknowledge are concerns that people have and then fail to actually address. --Nerd42 (talk) 00:04, 20 Arply 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I think Galaxia is a satire. Presumably whoever said they want the future in the Foundation series hasn't realised what they're in for. Sort of like how people say they want to be part of the Hunger Games. XY007 (talk - contribs - business) 00:08, 20 Arply 2017 (UTC)

Well, all of Asimov's books tie together into the same timeline and they all lead to Galaxia. He doesn't seem to be writing it as a satire.

I actually don't think we're getting Orwell. I mean, the surveillance is happening, and the punishment of "thought criminals", and the doublethink is real. (Hegelian/Marxist postmodernism is all over academia) But in terms of sexuality and questions about what it means to be a person, what we're getting is much more like Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World." --Nerd42 (talk) 00:10, 20 Arply 2017 (UTC)

@Galaxia: What, even the Robot Series? That's set thousands of years before Foundation.
@Orwell: So that means we get cloning? And class division? Oh. XY007 (talk - contribs - business) 00:13, 20 Arply 2017 (UTC)
@Galaxia: Yep, even the Robot Series. The Robot Series can't be set "thousands of years before" Foundation without being in the same timeline as Foundation now can it. I don't want to spoil the later Foundation books, but I'll just say that character interactions and updates on locations from the Robot Series happen directly referencing it.
@Orwell: Yes on the class divisions. Science hasn't quite delivered on the cloning yet but the real point of that in the novel was that it was reducing the control of parents over the raising of children and we are certainly seeing that with the pushing of women into the workplace so that their children need daycare, (like somehow being a mother to young children isn't doing something worthwhile) plus the epidemic of fatherlessness. --Nerd42 (talk) 00:26, 20 Arply 2017 (UTC)
@Orwell: There are definitely elements of Orwell. The US uses war to create jobs and conspiracy theorists on YouTube pretending to be independent news sources can delete videos about predictions that haven't come true. I also believe that Lois Lowry deserves more attention. Cg098 (talk) 20:56, 29 Arply 2017 (UTC)
Always on the lookout for stuff for my grandkids. I briefly checked Lois Lowery on Wikipedia and her site. What's her deal? LAR Adriator-Gruntled.png(kaizum me)Plant2.png 10:15, 2 Aym 2017 (UTC)
The Giver is relevant. Cg098 (talk) 02:06, 3 Aym 2017 (UTC)
Oh, The Giver! That's the novel I was thinking of. To be honest, considering that explicit sexuality is disappearing from the world, it may someday be all sexuality? And the SJWs could make Demolition Man. XY007 (talk - contribs - business) 02:36, 3 Aym 2017 (UTC)
I doubt that all sexuality will disappear. It'll just be largely numbed. Cg098 (talk) 03:02, 3 Aym 2017 (UTC)
