Sanding our assholes with 150 grit.

This could keep us busy for awhile

I think we should post one a day and discuss.

About half of these are pretty obviously true.

Don't spoil it, Colm.:)
Sharkfish, good idea! You pick one first.

Colm, the debate will be over *which* half is obvious.

"And while Mr. Bailey is correct that Reason admirably is willing to confront sticky issues, try suggesting around here that communism is better than capitalism or that the government has a moral duty to help people who don't want to be helped."

Looks like they have been busy for a while :)

I would respond to this, but I am drunk.  Give me a couple of hours.

Be sure to quote them and post a link when you do. Otherwise AG will freak out and Ward will delete them.

I won't freak out.  I'll just give you a hard time for not quoting.

Working at that college made me hyper-critical of plagiarism.  I'll try to let that go, OK?

>>> and post a link when you do.

Sort of like she did...

>>> Otherwise AG will freak out and Ward will delete them.

That's right, and now there's only wSV to undelete them, but he's too busy w/ the velcro gloves to notice.  And too stupid, even if he does notice.  He probably won't even notice that little insult...  Bwahahahahahahahaha!

Apparently, some people on the other site honestly believe in Stephenson's "Snow Crash"-- that some memes are so dangerous that there are dire consequences to even thinking them.

Now that I have experienced being crazy, I do believe that, when crazy, certain lines of thought can form a feedback loop on themselves and build in intensity until physically dangerous action is inevitable.

It would be interesting if this was possible in a sane person.

I think that such a feedback loop is probably one of the defining marks of a crazy person.
