I'm off to battle prairie sharks for a week.  Be nice to each other.

Hello again!

I appreciate your consideration.

You are correct that I would benefit from
informing new aquaintances of the nature of my absurdity.

It is a form of satire inspired by
the absurd theater people are calling civilization.
"fight absurdity with absurdity" in a half-assed way
or full-assed... whatever the Goddess prefers.

My intention was only to have some fun.
Hopefully that can be added to The Book
under a section titled "the folly of the absurd".

The thing is, if you're looking to do satire in an Absurdist fashion with "neutrality", you really need to go there.  I mean, you gotta dig in and get really extreme about it.  Take it to the wall; break down the wall; keep going.  You need to be fucking unhinged about neutrality. 

The signal you're sending in the OP is, "It doesn't affect me, and I don't care."  That's not neutrality, that's callous indifference. 

Like, if you want to be neutral about Nazis as absurdist satire, you want to up the stakes and state your neutral position on genocide, and baby rape.

Sure, that would make you look like even more of an asshole than you already do, but at least you wouldn't be boring.

Oh, they most certainly do not like us.

Roasted with tamari.  Crunchy and salty.

I eat kale.

And avocado toast.

And tofu.

And kimchi.

And crickets.

I may be in my 40s, but I'm killing things harder than an Annoyance of Millennials.

The Mooch is out after 10 days as communications chief for the White House.

Please clap don't suck your own cock like Steve Bannon.

That's amazing.  It's like watching the demolition of an old casino in slow motion.

That's about as woo as I can get.

Hey, I'm making some basic un-provable assumptions in my premise, right?

Ok, here’s my woo.  It took me a while to  get it right in my head.

- I believe in an objectively real Universe that exists outside of my mind, and contains many things including myself.

- I believe that the Universe is not a shared hallucination, and is subject to laws and rules; and with enough effort, these laws and rules can be understood.

- I believe that there are laws and rules we do not know of yet.

- I believe that whatever these undiscovered rules and laws might be, they either need to fit in with the rules and laws we already know, or they rewrite all the rules and laws that have been discovered over the last 100 years (i.e. ever since Newton’s understanding was found to be too broad).

- I believe that any idea about how the Universe works that does not feel the need to adhere to the known laws and rules has a greater than 50% chance of being wrong.

For what it's worth, I'm very interested in what's going on in Seattle with the min wage increase, from a science perspective. It's a real-world experiment, and I'm trying to be impartial.

Great pics!

And that rabbit is fucking creepy.
