Sweet jesus fucking eagles. I'll never complain about the board being shitty again.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”
― Assata Shaku

This board is practically Proust, compared with 2004's offerings.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."
- R. Scott Bakker, The Darkness That Comes Before

:lol:

Absolutely. I left TDS after the I'll rape your kids "joke". Such a waste of time.

Which has surprising relevance to Tom Robbins' book that is basically about whether Switters is just a latent pedo or an active pedo. Either way, the characters weren't sympathetic and the writing was trying too hard with every line. I've heard Tom Robbins wrote some good books, but after sitting through Fierce Invalids I haven't bothered.

Jitterbug Perfume was pretty good, as well as Another Roadside Attraction, but I'm not sure his writing stood the test of time.

Ah, I was trying to figure out why the hell anyone would bump this thread, but now I get it.

Sadists.
There's good news tonight.  And bad news.  First, the bad news: there is no good news.  Now, the good news: you don't have to listen to the bad news.
