There’s a pretty good mall in Cambridge. While I was in Boston still, I went there every so often. No empty spaces except where they were (very stupidly) adding office space. And they had the best little restaurant, World of Beer. If you’re in the area, I recommend it.

But that’s the only mall I’ve ever been in that wasn’t an utter disaster.

Yes, but if you want to see the future, go to a Ross in an otherwise dead mall.

Also, "Tech Horizon" sounds like the name of a shitty electronics kiosk in a run down shopping mall in the suburbs of Topeka, Kansas.

That's a fair point

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

Well then it is like Jesus (or buddha or king arthur or pirates or ninjas) - Its real but none of the things people believe about it are true.


I don't even know what you're trying to say, there.  "Here are a list of things which may or may not be real.  Which means they're real, only people believe wrong things about them"?

Pirates and ninjas and prince gautama definitely existed historically (and the other two probably did). Their depiction in the media and the popular imagination however is far from what is accurate or even plausible

Are you saying ninja lore is not accurate?

It sounds like you're questioning the system.

For real. I have a close personal friend who is in fact a ninja of one of the few publicly known clans known as the Bujinkan. Japanese ninja lore is QUITE accurate and I'm pretty sure they are in fact running things globally by fear of death from the shadows.

It's just how shit works.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.
