I was lucky enough that the university I attended had a copy in its library. Other than that I have had no luck on the internet apart from amazon, where it us 200+ dollars.

It's one hell of a read. And I would like to find it again.

I often have hysterical bouts of laughter about things that no one else finds particularly funny. I will laugh uncontrollably for five minutes or so (not like a psychopath, don't get the wrong idea), and usually some quality of my laughter makes everyone else laugh too. My laughter spreads like wildfire. I have found that this is a good quality of mine.

What kind of tree are you? Laugh is not a thing trees do often. They are so bored to be in there, that only a fool, like you, could make them laugh. As you are such a merry tree, i will take a girl to hug you someday, like the the wiccans do.

The mascot of this thread ought to be the fool from King Lear, I think...I always felt a strong affinity for his character.

I saw a play of King Lear some years ago, and the fool was a really striking character for me, at the time too. He was fearless in speaking the truth, and for that the king considered him a friend. After all, the fool was no fool Ė he was able to identify the results of king learís unwise decisions and spotted the ridicule of the big picture. Nevertheless, he always remained faithful and stood beside the king, even in madness.
 
The fidelity of the fool and his ruthless ability to speak the truth, were the characteristics that most marked me. So he really could be the mascot of this thread, despite he is not the perfect illustration of the idea i wanted to transmit.

I looked at her, wondering what space cake was. Maybe the kind of cake astronauts take into space with them. Dehydrated, perhaps, or in a tube. Maybe it had those tiny coloured candy bits all over it...
"What's a space cake?"
She looked at me, wondering what I was.
"It's got spaces in it", she said.

Haha! Crow, that was very funny.

My life is full of little and colourful stories, such as yours. When i was a teenager i worked in a cofee shop. One day a girl comes in; I asked her what she would have, and she said: i want a bread with god. To which i replied: Excuse me, lady, but that is asking too much of our little bakery, we only have breads of god! Eheh The girl blushed immediatly.

For the sake of curiosity, this godís bread is a national delicacy from Portugal, and is a kind of brioche with toasted coconut on top.

Even in adulthood, there are opportunities to laugh. Like this one, when i was in the army.

We were out in a exercise, with full gear. We marched at full speed through trails in the woods, with perfect cadence, until we reached our spot to camp. Then, with everything assembled, and the patrol shifts distributed, we were able to rest a bit from the hiking.

But something happened, and the officer started to yell, like a madman to some guys of the platoon, because they were smoking weed and drinking whisky. The platoon was gathered, and punished. The sentence was crawling like alligators all night long. Next morning, silence was reigning.


When you discover beauty and harmony, you start to live; Reality presents itself to you, in its entirety, and everything is seen in a new way.

If you want to laugh, talk with a crow, a tree and a guy from transilvania.

Just be glad you didn't get a lady cop. They have something to prove so are often worse than the men. A lot of my friends have similar problems. All my run-ins are my fault and 90 percent of them revolved around vigilance belligerence. Aside from LA, those run ins that have happened locally have been pleasant, all things considered. My wife doesn't dress like I do (boots/vest/etc) but she's got a lot of visible tattoos and piercings. She tends to get harassed and treated like garbage by police and she's a sweetheart. It legitimately enrages me because she's the one who keeps me in line.
I did get a lady cop, the main guy harassing me had his female partner there. She was fairly quiet though aside from asking me if I was on drugs 25 times. I was completely honest too, I told them that I had 5 beers and a few bong rips. I didn't have anything illegal on me so there was no reason for me not to be.

Colourful story. I have a clear picture of the whole thing.
Thanks, I like being a good story teller. I suppose this is my way of practicing.

But I gotta say: if you're looking for sympathy, you came to the wrong place.
Nah not looking for sympathy, got plenty of that at my lady friends house that I ended up crashing at haha. Girls love lost puppies. When shit like that happens I like to write it out, good way for me vent. Plus judging by the pigs remarks I bet if I wasn't a hessian things would have gone quite differently, so it was tangentially related to death metal. I was also curious if anyone else had similar stories.

I was actually thinking that you might be the guy that would have a good cop-harassment story even if you aren't a Hessian. Care to share?

Ugh classical is even worse. If I see another non-german speaker use "fantastiche" to a Schubert song, I'm going to step on my own testicles.

Where did you see that being used? The unnecessary use of german language seems to be a thing among liberal intellectuals here. In any case I'm all for stepping on others' testicles.

Anyone can tell how I feel about this thread from my posting history so I'll spare the repetition and say simply:

The "scholasticism" of art is unfortunate. While I enjoy the perspectives of others on it, nothing is more gay to me than a "black metal symposium." Could you imagine anything less black metal than a bunch of uptight dorks sitting in an air conditioned room (not even sipping brandy, fags) analyzing the Norwegian scene(because that's the only one that anyone seems to know/care about).

Ugh classical is even worse. If I see another non-german speaker use "fantastiche" to a Schubert song, I'm going to step on my own testicles.

As Goethe says, "One must BE something in order to DO something."

Unfortunately, these academics reveal exactly what they aren't... Their subject material. They just pick it apart, and enjoy it on the side. What kind of legalized dishonesty is this? Of course, I think we should welcome honest analysis- This website's existence and core beliefs/philosophies are a testament to this.

People rarely operate on a level relevant to life anymore. They just blithely dance around on a canvas- the art of a failed artist, painting poor souls meant to legitimize his failed work! This also sums up the postmodern ethos I would think.

One day you'll look back on it and laugh. The stuff you do, before you know better.

I've always thought the term "progressive" was a complete inversion of what it actually is.
I have no idea what caused so many people to become so completely inverted.
Probably I was elsewhere, when it happened, as I was for many years, trying to escape the lunacy that preceded the full-scale inversion. On the run from something I have never been able to understand.
The thing about escaping, though, is that once you've done it, you can never go back.
Ever.
