ARRRRRR

I went to a pirate party last night. And that’s not to say that it was as cool as pirates are, it was a genuine party of pirates. Almost everyone came in at least some form of costume (and some spent a lot of time on theirs) and we all gathered at a small house about 30 blocks away from mine to be rowdy and rude and drink rum and yell “Arrr!” as often as possible. They had decorations and old shwashbuckler movies goin on in the background and a whole lot of people (by which, of course, I mean more than some by a bunch). I stayed pretty sober the whole night but it was wonderful fun nonetheless. Who’da thunk that the party would have a potential impact on my life goals and an almost definate impact on my game.

I spent St. Patty’s Day with Epoc

It was at a small party of just about 12 people or so.  Epoc showed up with a girlie from back in the day.  I didn’t talk to him much as I don’t really know the guy, but I know of him in many ways.  When I first learned of Epoc it was when he was running ravehard.com, the site that fuelled the rave scene for the few years that it was running.  He was one of two local DJs who would always be able to get more people dancing than any headliners that they could bring in.  Him and DJ Double D.  He was somewhat of an icon of Calgary’s rave community.  But that’s not the only way that I knew of him.

Miniskirts, Beer, and God

Okay, first of all I got a disclaimer to put out there.  I am not taking a religious view of God in this article.  I’m going to speak of God in a purely philosophical manner.  In no way am I saying that I believe in God or that I do not believe in God.  I’m simply putting the argument out there.

That being said, I’m gonna talk about the miniskirt argument against the Ontological argument for God’s existence.  Now I think a little exposition is in order before I start talking about the argument itself.  The miniskirt argument was first created by myself and Brian Greenslade in the Liberty Lounge at Mount Royal College.  The purpose of coming up with the argument, at the time, was simply so that we’d be able to drink beer in class.  The beer in class argument went something along the lines of, our argument against the Ontological argument for God’s existence deals with miniskirts.   You can’t have in-depth discussions about miniskirts without beer, therefore we necessarily must bring beer to class in order to fully discuss the topics that we are supposed to discuss.  We never actually got around to giving that argument to the prof I don’t think, but it was a damned good idea if I do say so myself.
