Hell yeah my decisions are "ill advised"; they're ill as fuck, and I advise you to act similarly

like fuck im always sickened by the treatment of palestinians by the state of israel and their allies but at the moment seeing them trot out the official line when there is so so much evidence of their brutality literally being fucking livestreamed is, something.

my skin splits in two along the middle and a huge wiggling centipede emerges from underneath

i draw a venn diagram with circles 'rude', 'nude', and 'lewd'. thanos hog emerges from the middle, grinning

i have decided i no longer care about the opinions of weak people. twenty pushups or i'm not reading any of that shit

the days of the week, as you probably know, come from the classical planets: monday is the moon, tuesday mars, wednesday mercury, thursday jupiter, friday venus, saturday saturn, and sunday the sun. the system was invented by sumerians with their planetary deities, and every subsequent culture substituted their nearest equivalent: so inanna's day became ishtar's day became venus's day (as in ventredi) became frigg's day (as in friday)

the order is connected to the so-called 'chaldean' order of the planets, which is by the order of how fast they seemingly revolve around the earth (which, as it turns out, is also the order of how distant they're from earth): moon, mercury, venus, sun, mars, jupiter, saturnus. if you put that onto a circle & criss-cross it so it's a heptagram, that's how you get the order of the weekdays

planetary hours are based on solar hours: from dawn to dusk and dusk to dawn, day and night are broken into 12 equal segments; consecutively they don't line up with the standardised clock hours. how it works is the first solar hour on a given day is the same planet as that day, then the others follow in reverse chaldean order: thus the 1st hour of monday is moon, then saturn, jupiter, mars, sun, venus, mercury, and moon again

as it turns out, the remainder of 24÷7 is 3, which is the interval of the weekdays in the chaldean order: 3 planets backwards from moon is mars, and the day after monday is tuesday, which is mars's day. so it all works out

each planet has its traditional associations coming from renaissance magic and ultimately coming back to graeco-roman mythology: so mars is connected to fights, venus to love, mercury to travel, etc. the idea is that if you want to do something that falls under a certain planet's purview, you do it on that planet's hour, and, if possible, also on its day

what's interesting is how it proceeds by steps that, the initial premises accepted, seem reasonable enough, and ends up cohering very well with itself (thru the relationship of the numbers 7 and 24 and the order of the planets), yet ends up very far from where we begun: what's the reason doing things after sunrise on friday would have anything to do with venus, and how is the planet venus connected to romance or plantlife or anything, anyway?

this is how you work the world: by drawing lateral lines from thing to thing until connections are formed where none where previously visible, and then leveraging those
