Googling "really funny picture" served this up.

WTF?

I have no idea. It's not funny at all.

ok, firstly, Ayn Rand is a chick.

Secondly, you'll quickly find out, that practically NO ONE likes her here.

But hey, if you think you have some convincing arguments that might make us change our minds...

I double dare you to start listing them.

It can be hard to tell, though.

Also, yes, list them!

PD.com: we might not agree on anything, but we all agree that jazz is shit.

No we don't; I love jazz. 

But it's easily mockable, and I would never discourage the practice.

This.

want!

PM.

NOTE:

I no longer have anyone's address.  As a matter of courtesy, I am in the habit of destroying that information after using it (unless frequent use is in the cards, and it never is).

Except for cell phone numbers, as you well know.  It wouldn't be discordia without some freak bellowing incoherent rubbish into your voice mail.

I can't WAIT till I get a phone.

The second part is important because it leads to a scientific proof that no colors are pretty.

Can you scientifically prove "green is pretty"?

No, but you can scientifically prove that anyone who tries to put that forth as a fact instead of an opinion is a dumbass.

If this is true, then I am coffee today.
I could be shit and death too, had I heeded the advice of one especially vocal driver this morning.

Shit and death sounds like a badass thing to be. You'd be like the septic Grim Reaper.

Science cannot answer things which are not scientific.

You sure? I heard of this scientific field of study called abnormal psychology. I think that covers everything that isn't already covered by other science.

I think what he means (and I may very well be wrong) is that science can't assess metaphysical questions because A) science relies on physical evidence, ie that which can be detected by our (augmented) senses B)  science requires repeatable repeatable evidence and C) only falsifiable hypotheses are scientifically meaningful.

There's this word that concisely sums up my opinion of metaphysics.

"Sharkdongs."

Semi-re-jacking fread.

LMNO, I think "paranormal" should apply to numbers 1 and 2 of your list, because both of those sort of work together (being different degrees of the same idea) and I'm one of those freakish people who thinks everything can be explained with enough science, even people who take Glenn Beck seriously.

quickly added to by weird black mists in the hallways if the light was dim.

We've had sharp temperature increases (roughly 73->80) in the vicinity of the "hauntings", which goes against my normal understanding of ghosts.

Smoke, screams, and temperature increases. Not that I buy into any of this and you are probably crazy but has there ever been a fire in that place?

That's an unnerving thought. Many of the weird smells I mentioned are of burning substances. Food, electrical-fire smell, birthday candle smell. I'll have to ask.

Also, this might fit better in High Weirdness. I posted it here while having a panic attack and sleep-deprived, so I didn't think it through beyond "MUST MAKE CONTACT WITH HUMAN-LIKE BEINGS THAT ARE ALIVE"
