The mailing list:

This list is for members and fellow travellers of The Church of the SubGenius, an alternative religion. We discuss many new mental techniques including breakthinking, trance induction, communion with spirits, excremeditation, trepanning, short-duration personal saviours, the attainment of Slack, and many more. Only those seriously interested in brain modification need apply. Neither the Church, the moderator, or J. R. "Bob" Dobbs will be held responsible for any deleterious side effects of SubGenius list transmissions.

The list has recently moved to a new home and has a new Immoderator. For information on how to join, send a message containing the line info subgenius to

    To my consternation, I have recently learned there are about 500 web pages that point to this half-assed excuse for a SubGenius page! Most of them are just boring hotlist pages of various Bobbies, but some are from cults, cranks, or creeps who are interesting in their own right. Anyway, since you are obviously wasting your time anyway you might as well check them out for yourself. Brought to you courtesy of Alta Vista.
