I read a great line in a book, once, about a pupil asking a teacher what use mosquitos were. The teacher replied "Well, you might as well ask: what use are you?"
Dat wuz good.
I don't think "dat wuz good". The kid was obviously just asking if mosquitos have any direct value to humans and the teacher was being a smartass.

The basis for America is also English... hmm...
It's not that simple. In most places in the US, Americans are more German in ancestry. In fact for the 2000 census there are nearly twice as many people of self reported German ancestry than English. Even in New England they are almost equally Scottish as they are English.

parents who invest highly in children are more intelligent, thus spawn more intelligent offspring.
I was thinking along the lines of only idiotic women won't breastfeed. Why wouldn't you breastfeed your kids, barring medical issues? Because they think breastfeeding is "gross"? I'm not a woman nor have I had kids so maybe I'm speaking from a place of ignorance but I don't get why a woman wouldn't breastfeed.

I think it went right past you, DL.
HEY I'm DL, dead last is dl. Note the caps :)

Celtic philosopher Crow (1953 - 20?? AD)
Are you sure you're not American? You sound quite American to me.

The bit about it being brought on by drink/drug abuse is unsupported. If he is 67 and having these issues, that doesnt seem out of the ordinary.
Its impossible to say whether or not it was caused by the drugs but his drugs of choice, alcohol and speed, are hard on the heart and seeing as how he made it this far without any problems there is a good chance he'd be perfectly healthy right now if it wasn't for that crap.

I want it to be Christmas Morning 2043 surrounded by my family, then suddenly drop to the ground and calmly state "I'm dead" then fart and die.

Hey crow, I have a question of curiosity. Did you have a view similar to mine when you were in your  8)early twenties 8)? The way you word your replies seems to suggest it.

Did it ever occur to you two supermen that you will not be young for long?
What of your super bodies then?
Bodies come and go.
Only the spark stays the course.
Yeah of course I realize I'll grow old someday, someday relatively soon. That doesn't mean that my body doesn't form an integral necessary part of what constitutes "me". Without my body "I'm" not truly Dinaric Leather, I would be something derived from what was once Dinaric Leather. My body and consciousness form a dynamic duo. When my body is miserable my soul is miserable and vice versa.

I don't believe any of this shit. You are, at least in part, your body. Most of you nerds probably think you aren't cause you've barely used your body. If you aren't your body than why don't you just blow your brains out. It's not like you'll be killing yourself, just getting rid of the baggage.

Your body is part of your mind. Your brain doesn't stop at your neck, but goes down your spinal chord and shoots to your extremities via the central nervous system and sympathetic nervous systems.

This is a major reason why no man has a right to be an amateur in regards to physical training, to paraphrase Socrates. An unhealthy body will lead to an unhealthy mind and vice-versa.

Interzone / Misanthropy
« on: November 09, 2013, 09:52:15 PM »
I've been noticing a lot of misanthropy around here. The other Hessians like to note that cats never cleared a forest or created a nuclear bomb, but I would like to note that cats also never composed a beautiful symphony or fell in love.

I ain't knocking on cats, they have their place but so does humanity. If it weren't for humans the universe couldn't observe itself.

And humans are intelligent, in many ways liberalism is a disease that only appears in civilizations too smart for their own good. Of course you take intelligence a step higher then you can realize the folly in liberalism.

In 5,000 years, none of us will be remembered.
I disagree, about 2,300 years later Aristotle is still somebody. With the dawn of the information age I'm sure if we are still around in 5,000 years people will know who the geniuses and heroes of this age were if they're interested. Seeing as how there are people still interested in what we were doing 5000 years ago today I'm sure there will be interest.

This is my greatest tale of glory, it might not be what you think of glorious, but for me it may have been my finest hour yet.

So I was skating around with my usual crew, and we noticed a lot of Pall Mall cigarette packs at OUR park. We smoke Lucky Strikes, our rival crew smokes Pall Malls so we knew what was up. We waited for them to come back to our spot. So a couple nights later we came to the park with our beers, our weed and our girls, and the rival crew, the Alta Boys, named for the street they are centered on, come through with all their girls too. So we challenged them to a game of S.K.A.T.E., which is basically you attempting to do the same trick as your opponent then making it better, for example if the opponent does a kickflip off of a bench, I have to do a kickflip into a manual to beat him. Everytime you fuck up you get an extra letter until you spell skate and you lose.

So we started playing, and we eventually got to the point where we were both at SKAT, and it was my turn to go. The rival did a sick nose manual down this flat snake bench sculpture thing, and did a nollie over the head of the snake. I thought we were screwed. So I get up, all the girls were cheering me on, even some of the Alta girls which really pissed them off haha. I'm thinking about what to do to top him, so I did a tic tac manual (thats what we call it when you manual while going left-right-left-right) down half the snake, switched it to a nose manual then grinded a bit on the head of the snake and even though the landing was kinda sketched the vote from the girls was unanimous, we definitely won! We bet on this game and we won a little bit of cash, one of their girls stayed with us instead and they were never seen at that particular park again.

It was glorious, then we all went down to the Vegas Strip and partied the rest of the night.

I know its kind of a long story but when you asked if I have any tales of glory that popped straight into my head.

So we're all going to die. Whats the point of doing anything? It all amounts to the same for each and every one of us. Perhaps even the entire universe we know is going to be annihilated as well.

Or maybe you believe there never is an end?

Maybe Schopenhaeur was right and we'd be better off not being born.

by the way I think homosexuality is wrong because every gay person I met has pretty much been a faggot

I like the Buzzcocks though so maybe they aren't all bad

I might be biased though, Slim Jims are my favorite snack
