Tony begged for truth:
What's Eris? Also what is so much sex that it causes brain
damage, and where can I go to get it?

Uh I don't know about the sex part, but Eris was the greek goddess of
discord and chaos. According to legend, the greek gods and goddess
had a big party, but didn't invite Eris, because she was a troublemaker.
To get back, she took a golden apple and wrote Kallisti (greek for
"To the prettiest", I think) on it. Three of the goddesses began to
fight over it, and asked Zeus to judge between them. He passed the
buck to a mortal named Paris. Each goddess offerd to bribe Paris, and
one of them hit his weak spot: sex. Aphrodite offered to arrange for
Paris to sleep with the most beutiful woman in the world. It just so
happened that she was Helen (_the_ Helen), and this simple act of
revenge started the Trojan War. The roman name for Eris was
Discordia, and so those that follow her nowadays call themselves
discordians. Her followers are, without an exception, extremely odd.

Hail Eris!
