For me, it makes a better mystery if it wasn't meant to be "special", but there were things so horrific in it that it was universally abhored.  So calling it "The things humanity was not meant to know" issue makes it sound like we meant it to be that way, whereas it just starting as "Issue #4", which later became infamous sounds so much better to me.



I find it hard to explain myself lately.  I hope I haven't had a stroke or anything.

No, I totally hear you, and I agree. That was sort of my personal vision for the whole thing.

That way it's just an unexpected product of our combined genius, and we're just as surprised as anyone at how it turned out.

Can we refer to issue four as "The things mankind is not meant to know issue'?


How about The things humanity was not meant to know issue?

Sorry, I get tired of playing with just manthings.

On the one hand, you've sort of got a valid point. "Humanity" is a more correct term and doesn't really detract from the intended impact of the phrase.

On the other hand, the subtle and probably unintended implication that someone who uses "mankind" rather than "humankind" is misogynist pig annoys some people.

I'm not particularly bothered by your suggestion, but somebody here is liable to get on your case about it. :wink:

So, after thinking about it, I guess what I'm trying to say is that you're not wrong, but talking about gender and especially the English language as it relates to matters of gender tends to get some people here worked up.

We used to live very close to a Mohawk Indian reservation in upstate New York, when I was very little.

My mom was working on a small garden in our yard and when a Mohawk guy she knew to be a good gardener (many of them were, iirc), she apologetically dismissed it as a hobby attempt. He laughed and said there was nothing to be ashamed of, because "the time to learn to garden is not when you're hungry."

My acting teacher sent us all the link to it, and mentioned it in class.


I have a sneaking suspicion that he may, in fact, be a mittens and win teacher.

I can't Torrent from my school. This means they do not want me to be CRAZY PREPARED and thus intend to use me as slave labor/food in the aftermath. :tinfoilhat:

Incidentally, Kenen: "Heroine" means something totally different than how you used it.  Made me giggle, though.

I read the OP again with this in mind and :lol:

This sort of sounds like an anti-Pinealist rant, but directed at us

except I have a hard time actually connecting it with anything that we actually do.

Your name brings to mind how I can (and will, given half a chance) rebuilt civilization out of the back deck of my ancient Volvo.
Now that sounds like an article for Intermittens.

Actually, that sounds like part of an entire Intermittens theme.
