The Prometheus Device - Flamethrower in the palm of your hand!
    #11401773 - 11/07/09 01:44 AM (7 years, 11 months ago)

This is such an awesome invention. Who wouldn't want a portable flame-thrower in the palm of ones hand?

I like at ~0:55 where a glob of burning fuel falls into his palm and it cuts to the next scene.

The only problem is the flame isn't large enough, the unit is too large, and he's using World of Warcraft casting moves to showcase it sometimes.

I think it'd be more feasible to have it at the top of one's fist.

I do have to say tho, it's far beyond anything I could create, and mad props to something as cool as that. I like the part where you can see the small circles begin to spark at 0:28.

That would totally be awesome to own. Must have been a hassle to make it.

That's awesome. Looks a bit unwieldy, and possibly dangerous, but damn that would be a lot of fun. Might have to look into making one.

I stopped watching when he said:

No.  Satanism is represented by the inverted pentagram rather than the upright, which is my avatar.  I do agree with some of the principles expressed by LaVeyan Satanism but I don't worship any entity or willingly practice evil.

I think the whole 'worship' thing is really just an in joke, as is the practising 'evil' thing. The basic tenant is 'do as tho will' with an outright rejection of Christian morality.

I kinda like Satanism.

I like it because it's not Catholicism and it's the *one and only* thing above abortion that pisses the fundies off the most.

Worship is found in Theistic Satanism, which is significantly different from the LaVeyan brand.  The Order of Nine Angles would be an example of a truly Satanic group in that they practice human sacrifice.  LaVeyan Satanism might as well be called hedonism.

I don't think its hedonism as their are rational tenants, its not a free for all, one must still properly consider what is in ones long term best interests. Hedonism is short term thinking and very destructive. Satanists are all about doing what is best for themselves in the long term, for the maximum happiness and pleasure they can attain. At least that was my understanding when I studied it as a teenager. That was a long time ago however, so my memory could be skewed.

The popular image of hedonism is that of instant gratification and self-destructive indulgence at the expense of long-term satisfaction, sure.  As it stands, though, this is anything but a philosophy designed to maximize happiness.  A true hedonist ought to recognize that enjoying pleasure in moderation will be more beneficial than not giving a fuck and smoking crack all day.
