My parents were philosophy majors.  :sad:

Sheesh, that's worse than mine.  My parents are art majors.

Why didn't anyone think of the children?  :sad:

Nast,
Is a living cautionary tale.
"If I owned Goodwill, no charity worker would feel safe.  I would sit in my office behind a massive pile of cocaine, racking my pistol's slide every time the cleaning lady came near.  Auditors, I'd just shoot."

And what's really sad is that I was thinking about majoring in art. The epidemic continues.

I'm sure I don't have to tell you this Enki, but you should ignore Roger's hatespew.  Philosophy is, of course, the only way to really get anything done, but there is a certain ilk that is too impatient with philosophy to see the forest for the trees.  But then again, it sounds almost as if he actually read your paper:)
I think he's currently talking at some hypothetical group, rather than at me. You see, I don't smoke cigarettes.

A few notes:  You talk about how SI is "morally constrained" at least in relation to post-modernists, but I'm a little perplexed at this considering in the preceding paragraph you quoted above that they are not interested in "moral punishment."  I could be misunderstanding, because I am not at all familiar with the schools of thought you discuss here, but I find you conclusion paragraph at odds with the evidence you present.  Maybe you could help me to understand it better?
I couldn't say, actually. It's been nearly a year since I turned this in. Also, I'm not entirely sure this is the final draft, because the final draft was six pages long. I will look it over again and see if I can answer your question. That actually might have been a non-sequitor to see whether or not the professor was paying attention.


I am not “full of hate” as if I were some passive container. I am a generator of hate, and my rage is a renewable resource, like sunshine.

I'm sure I don't have to tell you this, GI, but you should just fuck right off.

This is the correct motorcycle.

I was talking about philosophers.

You might have wanted to do that before you posted the link because damn you can't even answer questions about your own post?  How sad is that?  Oh wait, I forgot, it's philisophy!

I like philosophy.

However some of the "defences" of it ITT are making me cringe with embarassment.

You work in a bar.  That is the only acceptable venue - or occupation - that is acceptable for philosophy.

I think philosophy is a waste of time, but the attacks on it ITT make me cringe with embarrassment.  Weird.

Let's all just cringe at each other because we all know so much better but can't be bothered.  That passes for discussion, right?

I will screech like a diseased howler monkey, if you think it will help.

Oh, wait.  I already did that.

Fun fact: cringing exercises over fifty different muscles in your face.  That's why TGRR can crack walnuts between his jowls:)

I think you only have jowls if your cheeks hang past your jaw in a ragged heap.
