That sucks, Nigel.
I hope she gets diverticulitis and all her poop kills her.
Question for all you spags:
If you have an online friend and you are concerned that they might be bipolar, do you risk offending them and say something? Or let it be?
Online friend? Doubt if it'd make a difference one way or another. Unless they're asking you. Upswing or downswing?
Upswing. They didn't ask, or I would have just told them. It would be completely unsolicited and therefore potentially offensive.
It really is a testament to how successful society IS, that so many people seem to feel they can opt out without immediate dire risk to their survival.
I haven't read much Campbell, but I loved the Power of Myth series. Your review makes me want to add him to my reading list!
I don't think you would go wrong to put him in your list. As a bonus, beyond the interesting subject matter, the writing itself is eloquent and even poetic, without being needlessly flowery or pretentious like some spoofs of "letters home from the Civil War". It's almost depressing because it presents a higher version of the English language that has been almost completely lost, even in the formal academic writing of today.
