I did mean greatest in the sense of best and most desirable. It's a weakness, but NOT a flaw. Every design or form has weaknesses, things that can break it. Compassion is one of ours, but it's critical to the survival of our species and expression of our nature.




Edit because I apparently jacked up the quote box code.

So compassion is Humanity's crumple zone? I can live with that analogy.

I don't know if I'd put it that way, really. Compassion is kind of the thing that makes us work as a species; the ability to connect with and care for other people is inherently crucial to everything we consider uniquely human achievements. Only a social species can develop culture and technology, and the biological, developmental condition on which sociability is dependent is compassion.

In my experience, compassion is also the only thing that makes us work as individuals too. Whatever form that may take.

TWJ: It's not a weakness (even when making the distinction of weakness from flaw), it is in the make up of the canvas on which we paint the parts of our inner lives that we feel raise us from 'mere animals'. It's part of what makes us 'other'. It's one of the reasons why even the most evil of people don't believe they're evil.

Things Payne is responsible for in the event of my gruesome demise, #32:

If it's a closed-casket funeral, Payne will force the organist to play "pop goes the weasel" in the middle of the service, so that everyone is waiting for something awful to happen.

Regardless of the circumstances of your death, there will be no closed casket.

Pop goes the weasel will still be played. I may need to install some articulating gubbins and what-not within your body to make full use of this.

As such procedures are likely better performed before rigor really sets in, I will require 24 hours notice of your impending death to fly over there.

Yep. I remember that. I'm glad you changed it.

I'm starting to get annoyed with how anal home depot is about bothering people about their commercial credit cards. The other day, they actually told me to ask them if they wanted to apply for one, even if they already have one! Not to mention that I have to ask if they're using a HD credit card, even if they have cash in their hand, or theyre just buying small things you would never put on a credit card. I've gotten used to just parroting out the routine as quick as I can at the start, and if anyone co.plains I try to make a joke about it.

*in a pleasant, airy tone*

Hi there! Can I help you take one more step into crippling debt so my boss' boss' boss can buy a new mansion?

Although, come to think of it, it may have been this:



The entire cones thing still cracks me up. "The Coneplete Sherlock Holmes" by Arthur Cone-ing Doyle.

Hawt.

Alty is hawt, Nigel is hawt. It's all a bit too much to bear thinking about.

I will however grant you both some indulgences so you don't need to worry about the state of your souls when you go Full Freak.

As opposed to...?

Well now it's other people's instead of just my own. It's both erotic and nauseating.

I can't remember my very first, but the earliest I can recall was the octo-toolboxer man.

So that's why I never click that new replies to your posts link.

It's been 3 hours and I've barely scratched the surface. Fucking hell. I cant keep up with you guys.

Try it after you've not logged in for over a year.

My entire tubes are coated in ichor and brain flukes now.

Fucking with zoe quinn was fun when I was in my nazi /pol/ phase,



Two steps forward, three steps back.  What the fuck, man?

Nobody ever listens.  I'm always right, and nobody listens.

I'm like Casandra with a dick.  Tellin' ya.

Hey, that was like a year ago, I'm completely different now. Stopped with the hole angry teen looking for a revolution bullshit. Now I'm just chill and try to be nice to everyone.

Wait, what?

"Oh ja, ja I used to be Nazi but it's all gut now, honest! I don't have any real problems mit der juden now! Forgive unt forget, that's what I say!" ~pretty much the entire defence of the Nazis in the dock at Nuremberg.

Well real jews arenít anything like what they teach you in /pol/ school. The evil juden are more a cautionary tale of greed that no real human can embody. Also doesn't really matter if they're religious anyone can be greedy and cruel.

Ahhhh, I see. So it's what the Jew represents, not the actual Jew theirself that is evil. The stereotype of the Jew at least. I just, however, have one question:

In what substantive fucking way is that any different to any other brand of antisemitism that has existed for thousands of years from the Romans to Edward I, from centuries of pogroms in Russia to the actual fucking Nazis?

Yeah.   :lulz:  Either he changed, or I used to be blind, because up until now I took the guy seriously.  Of course, I haven't interacted with him since he was here.

Wait, that Bones? I always thought he was alright round here. What crawled up his ass and turned him into that asshole in the Facebook thread?
