forgers database

Among “People of the Book” it is customary to believe what is written in their scriptures. Today, this category of people could include not only followers of Abrahamic religions, but also those who are accustomed to believing a separate category of non-religious writings. As a rule, in such cases, the concept of “holiness” of scriptures is substituted for the concept of “academic authority,” but the principle itself remains the same. As a result, the perceptions of the past and present of the world around us for those who are accustomed to believing scriptures backed by academic authority are shaped by such secular books.

That said, many highly specialised academic specialists are often aware of and report on the abundant practice of deliberate forgery in their particular areas of expertise, but more often than not their focus does not extend beyond their specialisms. For example, the established art historian specialising in Germany has detailed the massive fabrication of German Renaissance artifacts, but at the same time has not even questioned artifacts from other regions and time periods. For example, the major authority in the field of Roman, Jewish and Christian numismatics, honestly wrote about the fact that only separately taken so-called “Paduan” fake coins find a place in almost all cabinets of collectors of antique coins, noting their high quality, but at the same time he did not even questioned the time period of origin of lower quality items. For example, the honorable comparativist and historian of European culture systematised the widespread cases of “editing the memory of nations,” the deliberate falsification of the cultural past (primarily literary heritage) in the process of creating national identities in Europe, but at the same time did not even question the ancient national history in other parts of the world.

By default, preferring not to believe everything that is written in holy religious or academic scriptures, and proceeding from the fact that perhaps almost everything written in them is a deliberate forgery, for myself i decided to try to systematise the data on forgeries and started the project of the database of forgers: forgers of almost all fields of human activity and of all known times.

discordian martyrs

In scriptural religions, one is supposed to believe what is written. In these scriptures, suicide is mostly considered sinful and those who commit suicide are usually deprived of a funeral before burial. Therefore, if the authoritative scriptures write that someone committed suicide, even if they had no objective reason to commit suicide, then believers are supposed to treat the suicide committer as a sinner, even despite their former merits

Discordianism prescribes not to believe what is written. Therefore, if authoritative sources centrally report the suicide of someone who had no preconditions for suicide, that someone becomes a posthumous candidate for Discordian martyrdom. Having been recognised by the five Popes, Discordian martyrs are venerated and become candidates for sainthood of this religion. Candidate Discordian martyrs are not only those who are declared by authoritative scriptures to be suicidal, but also those who died in bizarre suicidal circumstances and her or his activities were contrary to the building of a unified order.

53 Discord is a general commemoration of Discordian martyrs. On this day it is customary to remember the lives and labours of the revered Discordian martyrs, unwittingly forgotten by adherents of scriptural religions; to commemorate their merits and shame the adherents of scriptural religions who benefit from the fruits of their labour, but who are careful not to remember or honour, according to their scriptures, the suicidal sinners.

erisian time

Back in the old days, the world was on many conflicting systems of keeping time. While three-quarters time might prevail in one area, elsewhere it was spare time or springtime or due time or ragtime.
Exactly 136 years ago a bunch of pundits from all over the world met in Washington, DC, and decided everyone should employ Standard Time (used by Standard Oil of New Jersey), based on Greenwich Mean Time (the time I was using in the meantime in Greenwich Village).
Far from perfect, this solution allows it to be one time in London at the exact moment it is some other time entirely in New York or San Francisco or Moscow.

Today, on this Daytime holiday, in coordination with Pope Crestomanci and the consensual decision of other respected Popes and Bishops of the New and Old World, we present the exact Erisian (Discordian) time. Discordian time is a single planetary decimal time. If in Christian time, the clock shows the correct time only in Greenwich Village and surroundings, then Erisian time on the whole planet is the same, that is, in some places the dawn is usually at 1 o’clock, while in the opposite side of the world it is at 6 o’clock. With this the beginning of Discordian day (0 hours, 0 minutes, 0 seconds) coincides with the beginning of Christian day on Easter Island on winter time (GMT-5). This means that the Erisian day starts 5 Christian hours later than the day in London (UTC ± 0:00).

As in the original decimal time system, there is 10 hours, 100 minutes in an hour, 100 seconds in a minute in a Discordian day. 10 hours per day – exactly as many fingers on both hands, without all these 12 apostles and 12 tribes.

1 Erisian hour = 0.1 days = 2.4 Christian hours
1 Erisian minute = 0.001 day = 1.44 Christian minute
1 Erisian second = 0.00001 day = 0.864 Christian second

In general, Discordian time coincides with the traditional decimal time (previously officially used in France and China), with a slight difference that Erisian time is the same for the whole planet, it has no time zones and is used within Discordian calendar.

happy gonkulator day

I’d like to make a public statement. I was fooled. I bought the PR, believing in advertising. I admit my mistake, which i realized only now.

Previously, i translated all the sites i administer into https, because ‘s’ at the end means “secure”. That’s probably the reason of  success of this campaign: “Make all your sites secure”.
Yes, a https session can and should be used for personal correspondence on unsafe networks, but it is not necessary to view pictures on social networks with https (as popular browsers force users to do, showing “secure” and “insecure” depending on the presence of https/http pictures). I understood this at the beginning of using it, but being fooled, i was continued to fool myself in the spirit of “well, after all, an unscrupulous provider can find out what particular pictures are viewed by users”. And that’s why, giving in to the corporate PR, i did compulsory redirection to https on all sites. Even when i saw how many trackers are inserted into sites of the corporations that are concerned about security and promoting this protocol.

But in preparation for today’s holiday, i realized that all this is nonsense compared to what loads the https protocol imposes on the global digital infrastructure. Not only a servers encrypt each request before it is sent, but a clients also use additional resource consumption to decrypt the data they receive. This imaginary security concern leads to increased demand for power consumption and computing on a global scale. This imaginary security concern leads to faster and more frequent battery discharge, where when viewing friends’ feeds, the mobile device only does what encrypts and decrypts images and short publicly available text messages. In fact, this creates a demand for energy and computing power.

I am not going to give up this protocol where it is justified (for example, in the private correspondences). But where there is no need in it, i will try to remove the obligatory https redirect, which i did after being fooled. Literally, i was fooled by browsers showed such sites as “unsafe” when opening new tabs.

First of all, i removed the redirect of these sites right now; they are again available via HTTP protocol, which does not create additional loads and power consumption, and does not increase the additional demand for energy carriers:

Gradually, i will try to fix this mistake and reduce to a minimum my personal involvement in what provokes an increase in useless energy consumption on a global scale.
