Introduce yourself here <-----

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

If you call them (enough), they shall come? Hello old buddy/old pal
The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

Hiya everyone! I'm hoping some old faces are still around, xD. I was around 17ish when I joined years ago and recently remembered this site. Boy have I learned a lot since then. I'm 27 now and have been reading my younger self argue with people on subjects I forgot all about. My old username was Xilivai and Xilivai Ferozix, but I don't remember if I had other usernames. It was a phase xD. I find it funny that I was arguing about addiction and now fully understand what it is xD (I'm a smoker, unfortunately.). Not sure if I agree with my younger self but damn he motivates me to quit, haha. Anyways I'd like to get back into exercising my mind a bit slowly after a rough 10 years.

Greetings, friend.

If you would be so kind to complete the following task, we would very much appreciate it.

Name a three syllable word of latin origin starting with 'q' that was often used by a scholastic philosopher who's name also contains a 'q'.

Shut it, meno. This question is for tamoke.

Hello Tamoke, and welcome. You had better listen to Promethean75 (he demands we spell his name with a capital P even hough he doesn't, a sign of Great Humility) if you want to be popular here. He is the philosopher-king of the forum, to speak in a manner of speaking. If not, well, there are plenty of bottom-feeders here too and gosh bless they have some nice talk amongst themselves either.
It is true that liberty is precious; so precious that it must be carefully rationed.

hint: the answer is not 'qualia', 'qualify', ''quality', 'quantify, or 'quantity'.

... and don't think for a minute that you're gonna come in here, introduce yourself, and then disappear. the true philosopher is not merely 'interested' in philosophy, but lives and breathes the shit. if you do not find yourself perplexed by things even of the most benign nature the moment you wake up in the morning... then you are no philosopher. ask yourself this, if you dare; how will you walk from your bed to the bathroom if in doing so, you have to first walk halfway... but in walking halfway... you must first walk half of that distance, and so on, ad infinitum?

how can you be so arrogant as to assume the confidence that you'd ever even arrive at the bathroom? let me guess; you just walk to the bathroom, and that's that.

in that case, let me offer a complete and utter retraction of this post.

My.being here is.not at .all unlike as. others.here, studied a tad.of philosophy, personal life.problematic, and wish to imagine.anonymous people..similar.somewhat , to meeting them in real life. Suspecting that such l face to face meetings well enough , to really occur, behavior would be sharply curtailed.

Cormmon sense dictates that, and in all my years, would not offer negative satisfaction through behind the scenes innuendo , so as to at least appear to live up to some.semblance of the forgotten ideal in human behavior,
Niice to meet you!


Now, what was the question?

Hello all, pinkladydragon here. I'm a new member. Well, that is not strictly true. I have been a member on and off for around 15 years. It has been about 5 years since I was last a member. In the interim I have forgotten my old ID and, of course, my old password. This necessitates me re-registering. Normally I Love Philosophy is one of the easier sites to work with. Not this time. It has taken me about 6 tries to register. This largely due to "technical" issues. Anyway, I finally made it. So, hello again.

Ok, second time lucky. Not only have I had the most extraordinary difficulty registering - it took me around 6 tries - but my first post to this forum thread was not posted. I'll introduce myself again, then. Hello, all. I have, many years ago, been a member of this forum. Can't remember what I called myself then but I am reincarnated now as pinkladydragon.

(I might go off to have a rant about how difficult it was to register. Not just with this forum. Things really seem to have gone downhill with technology these days.)

Pinkladydragon here again. Oops. I see the problem with posting now. Moderators want to vet posts from newbies before them being given the go-ahead to post. Some sites do, some sites don't. Oh, well...………………………………………...
