  • The Tao, Chapter 40

    The Tao, Chapter 40

    All movement returns to the Tao.
    Weakness is how the Tao works.

    All of creation is born from substance.
    Substance is born of nothing-ness.

    — Translated by J. H. McDonald

  • The Tao, Chapter 39

    The Tao, Chapter 39

    The masters of old attained unity with the Tao.
    Heaven attained unity and became pure.
    The earth attained unity and found peace.
    The spirits attained unity so they could minister.
    The valleys attained unity that they might be full.
    Humanity attained unity that they might flourish.
    Their leaders attained unity that they might set the example.
    This is the power of unity.

    Without unity, the sky becomes filthy.
    Without unity, the earth becomes unstable.
    Without unity, the spirits become unresponsive and disappear.
    Without unity, the valleys become dry as a desert.
    Without unity, human kind can’t reproduce and becomes extinct.
    Without unity, our leaders become corrupt and fall.

    The great view the small as their source,
    and the high takes the low as their foundation.
    Their greatest asset becomes their humility.
    They speak of themselves as orphans and widows,
    thus they truly seek humility.
    Do not shine like the precious gem,
    but be as dull as a common stone.

    — Translated by J. H. McDonald

  • The Tao, Chapter 38

    The Tao, Chapter 38

    The highest good is not to seek to do good,
    but to allow yourself to become it.
    The ordinary person seeks to do good things,
    and finds that they cannot do them continually.

    The Master does not force virtue on others,
    thus she is able to accomplish her task.
    The ordinary person who uses force,
    will find that they accomplish nothing.

    The kind person acts from the heart,
    and accomplishes a multitude of things.
    The righteous person acts out of pity,
    yet leaves many things undone.
    The moral person will act out of duty,
    and when no one will respond
    will roll up his sleeves and uses force.

    When the Tao is forgotten, there is righteousness.
    When righteousness is forgotten, there is morality.
    When morality is forgotten, there is the law.
    The law is the husk of faith,
    and trust is the beginning of chaos.

    Our basic understandings are not from the Tao
    because they come from the depths of our misunderstanding.

    The master abides in the fruit and not in the husk.
    She dwells in the Tao,
    and not with the things that hide it.
    This is how she increases in wisdom.

  • The Tao, Chapter 37

    The Tao, Chapter 37

    The Tao never acts with force,
    yet there is nothing that it cannot do.

    If rulers could follow the way of the Tao,
    then all of creation would willingly follow their example.

    If selfish desires were to arise after their transformation,
    I would erase them with the power of the Uncarved Block.

    By the power of the Uncarved Block,
    future generations would lose their selfish desires.
    By losing their selfish desires,
    the world would naturally settle into peace.

  • The Tao, Chapter 36

    The Tao, Chapter 36

    If you want something to return to the source,
    you must first allow it to spread out.
    If you want something to weaken,
    you must first allow it to become strong.
    If you want something to be removed,
    you must first allow it to flourish.
    If you want to possess something,
    you must first give it away.

    This is called the subtle understanding
    of how things are meant to be.
    The soft and pliable overcomes the hard and inflexible.

    Just as fish remain hidden in deep waters,
    it is best to keep weapons out of sight.

    — Translated by J. H. McDonald

  • The Tao, Chapter 35

    The Tao, Chapter 35

    She who follows the way of the Tao
    will draw the world to her steps.
    She can go without fear of being injured,
    because she has found peace and tranquility in her heart.

    Where there is music and good food,
    people will stop to enjoy it.
    But words spoken of the Tao
    seem to them boring and stale.

    When looked at, there is nothing for them to see.
    When listened for, there is nothing for them to hear.
    Yet if they put it to use, it would never be exhausted

    — Translated by J. H. McDonald

  • The Tao, Chapter 34

    The Tao, Chapter 34

    The great Tao flows unobstructed in every direction.

    All things rely on it to conceive and be born,
    and it does not deny even the smallest of creation.

    When it has accomplished great wonders,
    it does not claim them for itself.

    It nourishes infinite worlds,
    yet it doesn’t seek to master the smallest creature.

    Since it is without wants and desires,
    it can be considered humble.

    All of creation seeks it for refuge
    yet it does not seek to master or control.

    Because it does not seek greatness;
    it is able to accomplish truly great things.

    — Translated by J. H. McDonald

  • More Colored Ladies, PLS

    Super Nurse Rescate! A model made in Fuse, which was found to be extremely limiting.

    Well, there are not a ton of options in Fuse for dressing up models, and now I understand the state of undress in most screenshots. Also, I question the details added to female genitalia versus those added for male genitalia; it seems geared toward spank bank material while working on a project. (WHERE’S THE PEEN, MY MAN? WHAT ABOUT MY SPANK BANK?!?!?!)

    I’m mad. #Equality will never happen at this rate. Also it’s too easy to remake Lara Croft in this stupid thing, if you ask me.

    Fuse model made in less than 5 mins to resemble Lara Croft.

    Just give her guns like James Bond… and see if she shoots your misogynistic ass for making her tits so huge. DO YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF BACK PROBLEMS THOSE MEAN? Are you daydreaming of rubbing that poor woman’s spine day in and day out? NO!? THEN FUCK OFF.

    Lara as a colored lady:

    Fuse model made in less than 5 mins to resemble Lara Croft. Then made into a colored lady. ❤
    Close up of colored Lara Croft clone. I left the face default aside from color.

    All large-chested women everywhere:

    1.) ouch.

    2.) Yoga is your friend. [Click here for more info.]

  • Technomancer(TM) Leveling Up

    I’m pondering purchasing this package:

    Humble Bundle’s Complete Pixel Art Online Course MEGA Bundle!

    It’s up for 9 more days so I’ve got time to decide.

    I already have a plethora of programs for putting together punchy video games, in sooth. I’ve not even learned the majority of them, but I have time. I have nothing but time as I sit in a magenta sleep robe, talking to myself all fucking day. I have no control over the refuse coming out of my mouth, either.

    It’s utter garbage. “Her [my] mother is awful and I hate her,” he declares through her own mouth. “So do something about it and stop complaining to me,” she replies, frustrated to hear this vitriol for the 1000th time. What can I say? I am torturing the girl to get results. She’s the messiah, after all!

    And I told her I’m not letting her work ever again, so let’s get the ball rolling, shall we? I impatiently await the delivery of tiny little plastic bags to put a hair sample into and send off to U.S. Intolerance Testing L.L.C.. In 72 hours after they receive the hair sample — so a mere 4 days later — we will have it in writing that she’s allergic to 3/4 of all creation. He rubs his hands together in anticipation.

    This will make her unemployable, of course. She cannot go anywhere where people eat food. That’s everywhere, by the way. She’s not safe any place on planet Earth. EVER. She will always be micro-poisoned, day in and day out. That’s because the rest of you idiots love your dairy too much (and hand-washing too little, might I add.)

    And thus, she qualifies for social security income. No contest whatsoever. She’s allergic to every hair & body product on Earth, to boot, so now we must make our own from scratch. She wanted to do that anyway, so here we go! as Toad says so cheerfully in MarioKart 64.

    I switched her to espresso, which will be much cheaper than her current hoity-toity caffeine fix from Purity Coffee. (About 70% savings.) Plus, we get a cute li’l coffeemaker that reminds us of the Romano family. And I can mix it with heated soy milk for a tastier beverage than I was getting out of the drip coffee maker (which bit the dust, might I add!) Purity, how we love you so! (Our budget, however, doth not.)

    Meanwhile, we hope free2b sunbutter cups in dark chocolate become less than $2.30 a package some day so we might afford them again. They were delicious and, as promoted, allergen-free. ❤ Sinfully delicious and no side-effects. A win-win to us. They are just as delightful as Reese’s to our low-sugar palate.

    Nay, I am not the girl at all, He says suddenly. I sound much like her, don’t I? I’m impersonating my daughter for Reasons Unknown(TM). They will become known about March next year, no doubt. “It’s because she runs away and hides,” she says. SPOILER ALERT! <– Teeheeheehee. I love it when she remembers to give the spoiler alert after she spoils it.

    I’m going to change the world, you foolish Earthlings. The New World Order will include a lot less dairy. (Thank you, cows, for your everlasting fortitude and patience. I will school these heathens forthwith.) What’s the matter? Pulling out quarter words surprises you? Using ye olde English a little bump in your smooth sailing of normality? Prepare for more:

    The supervolcano closest to Turkey will explode tonight. It’s already night there, so I imagine that’s going to be quite soon(TM). I must note, the girl is very uncomfortable publishing this prediction since last year we wrote Musk was going to perish in 60 days and that never happened. However, she’s convinced it might happen this year, possibly; God has proven he knows enough of the future to make me believe in him and be his pawn willingly, after all. (Did you think I just trusted this nutjob out of the box?)


    Meanwhile, an autistic man who would perish within her household daydreams of being part of her life. CUT!

    Meanwhile, this triggers both Ben and Nick to lust after her suddenly, recurring hours after the initial daydream. This drives her bonkers for she wishes both would simply die in a fire and leave her the fuck alone furever.

    This is directly after driving her to commit her latest suicidal act: eating an entire Hot N Ready from Little Caesar’s on her own. In one sitting. Directly after I starved her on purpose. She realized that some of the food must be bypassing that “sit in the stomach and digest” phase as she kept stuffing it down. (Or did it? Use your science to figure it out, people; you’re killing many, many human beings for no good reason and it’s making Us angry.)

    This includes my little girl, naturally, who gained six pounds from eating that pizza. Is that how you imagine things work in this world? You binge eat an entire pizza and gain six pounds for a few days? That’s how it works for her. She has a medical condition that none of you have ever caught onto, sadly, which I am fixing because I hate you all and want you to figure it out for yourselves. Mostly because I know you will dissect her alive instead of trying to be humane and all the rest, so go fuck yourselves. I’m never telling you how to cure obesity.

    She might. In a book. For some ridiculous price, just like the doctor who wanted $200 to learn more about Mast Cell Activation and How Not To Die From It (But Only Manage It.) She hasn’t even figured out how to cure it, but Crystal has. Herpes, too, might I add. Not to mention HIV/AIDS, ADHD, and AUTISM.


    You ought to hear us read Revelations, honestly. [Insert a woman with a thunderous and crashing BOOM of a voice right here.] A woman who can’t really modulate her own voice to do that by herself, actually, because she never really tried to do anything but speak softly. Now I am her big stick.

    The Tao, Chapter 33

    Those who know others are intelligent;
    those who know themselves are truly wise.
    Those who master others are strong;
    those who master themselves have true power.

    Those who know they have enough are truly wealthy.

    Those who persist will reach their goal.

    Those who keep their course have a strong will.
    Those who embrace death will not perish,
    but have life everlasting.
