Why hadst thou forsaken us and then done a u-turn after all this time and moved us back to deforsaken status?

I didn't U-Turn. I just followed the Lost Highway all the way around.

I realised earlier today that it's been over ten years since I registered here. Not much has changed in that time...

I have a lot of grey hair.  That changed.   :lulz:

Perhaps you are evolving into a wire brush? Evolution is perfectly feasible in my religion...

Definitely. Love me a bit of heresy.

Could you rephrase that as a question?

Pretty shite, all told.

And yes. It's ALL televisions.

Go ahead you filthy fucking heathens. Ask me how my days been.

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.

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:
