All human beings are intrinsically random and pretty much driven mad by it too, Including your mum.

And yes I know your mum joke you're bored or is that board of them, but think about it really carefully because after all I am much smarter and much madder than you, and the truth if we ever hope to discover it will come from hel. :-"

All joking aside Merry Christmas ya ruddy nutters, I hope your having half as much fun as I am, and or at least you are drunk by now, if not working on it. Because I am and I don't intend to stop until I go mad. :P :D

Ok that was the last joke but your mum.

Sorry I'll get me coat. ;)

You might want to watch this it will make more sense, I know you don't watch youtube videos because the inebriati are watching your mum. But for gods sake take the tin foil hat off for once. :D

More random ponderings later when I have done your mum.

What's a wonder wall anyway?

Tell me I am not random. ;)

ok that was the last joke I promise.

Have you ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?

Ok penultimate joke.

Your mum.

The joker?


I am not Napoleon!

Adaaam Weeeest!!

Wait till the get a load of Adaam Weeest!

Yes that was clever. No you don't have to read it or even acknowledge it, I am quite mad.

I trust you now get the point?

if not that's Numberwang!

Rotate the board.

That's wangernumb Julie to place first Kenneth?

that's the nuberwang bonus!!!



If only people would watch the links it would be much easier for Bertrand Russel.

And if you are wondering if I am mad, yes I am are you mad yet?

I have only one thing to declare "it is numberwang!"

Random it is. If you think that's weird you should try living in my head. why do they come to me to die?

Ok last joke of the evening.

And if you are in any doubt see here:

And to round off the madness:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dipFMJckZOM and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgX6JFoV0TM. I thank you for your attention and to round off the endlessness http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cEX3c7mxu0s, the rabbit has gone down the hole.

It's one thing to give voice to the teachings of past philosophers, and another to hear them yourself. I was going over Aristotle's ethics some time ago and giving them the usual spiel about how 'happiness' is a quality of an entire life and that we should read Aristotle as giving us his take--which he thinks is correct for all--on the ingredients for a well-lived-life-stew. I told them that they could disagree about specific ingredients, but that they should appreciate the holistic perspective of life; that they should look at their life as an entire unit, and come up with their own recipe for a tasty stew; that they themselves had to find it tasty.

But I had never personally put on Aristotle's spectacles. Never actually saw my life as such, never wondered what ingredients, spicy or sweet, tragic or pleasant, would give my overall life the character of "a good life," by my own standard. Problem is without seriously abstracting from the moment and having an image of your entire life as a unit in your mind, you have no standard.

Then I stepped on a rusty nail, and that fucker went in deep in my heel. I'm talking about an inch or so. For whatever irrational reason, I kept thinking that I had been infected with something deadly. I didn't have insurance at the time, and I didn't take the thought that I was going to die seriously enough to go to the doctor, but the thought lingered and it triggered some other thoughts.

It specifically triggered that Aristotelian view of a whole life, and I took it somewhat seriously. This was nothing voluntary. I wasn't forcing myself to have these thoughts anymore than I force myself to have a song stuck in my head. But I had a dream that night that my casket was being lowered into my grave. And in my dream I was looking around at who was there, who wasn't, who seemed like they wanted to be there and who was there out of mere social obligation. And this didn't really matter. Whether I was loved or not, whether I'd be missed or not didn't matter. I mean, I cared that my immediate family would be hurt over my death, but I didn't find my own life more valuable because they'd be hurt. I could even say that I wouldn't have cared if no one was there, but then again it's possible I say that because I'm loved and have always been loved, and consequently can't imagine nor appreciate what it'd be like to not be loved. Moving on.

What mattered was this other thought. This question: what would I have liked to have done to make me right now satisfied with the thought of being lowered into my grave? And I had an answer, well, two to be precise. One, sons. I want sons. Healthy, intelligent, good looking and philosophically inclined sons. Two, to have written a book or two. It wouldn't have mattered that they were well-received, that they were popular; just that I had written them and I was happy having written them.

I thought that was enough, and I still think that's enough, but then I woke up and ever since have been wondering if that should be what determines what I do with my life; whether I should direct my efforts towards making myself satisfied with the thought of dying. Maybe it's best to put dying out of mind, and not live hoping the stew you've spent your entire life preparing tastes good to that old man on his deathbed.

I don’t know if people realize that even back then, he was already a billionaire. This is creating a false perception of the person, like Trump tried to do in order to appeal to poor working class that are still taught that the key to success lies in hard work and then, some more hard work.
It’s funny how people asssume that a lot of these billionaires have started from scratch and on their own, just like them, and therefore so can they. I’m not trying to knock people down, but people often get so lost in their hopes and dreams, that they also forget to be realistic. We are not exactly comparing apples to apples here, or apples from the same orchard. A humble appearance or habits does not make him just like you and me. Bill Gates may also appear simple in his appearance like the rest of us, but in practical ways, he also might as well be coming from another planet.

On marsupial reproduction
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkKT6H2SMHU
It’s quite a remarkable adaptation of marsupials (externalized fetal development), which was presumably a reaction to an unpredictable environment (such as droughts). But it also seems quite precarious to me, as well. What is the advantage of expelling an underdeveloped fetus over internalized placental development? Rodents, for example, can also gestate one fetus, while keeping a spare one (blastocyst in stasis), and have two uteri for that purpose, but in their case the development of their embryo is internal (placental). I wonder if marsupial reproduction was an adaptation to repeated miscarriages or conditions (?) that were unfavorable to sustained internal gestation, because considering all costs and benefits, internal development seems preferable. I’m thinking there was a condition present that kept terminating pregnancy (internal), and the cost of that was too high, so an externalized development was an adaptation to lower the cost of pregnancy, and that cost seems to have been passed on to the fetus. Poor little joey.

The millennials, Pluto in Skorponok, are the warriors. The same was of course the case back then. Washingtons warriors were Pluto in Scorpio men. As were the lads set against him.

Yes yes, the bigger the events, the more regular their patterns.

https://en.www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antitheatricality

This might be an interesting topic to look at because today, we practically worship Hollywood culture (film and actors) worldwide. But throughout history, such things (acting, pretense, or mimesis, if you will) have been usually looked down upon for various reasons.

Cultural neoteny, perhaps? It appears to me that experience is no longer relevant. It's far more important to be up-to-date with the latest trends -- one of the things children are very good at. A consequence of globalization?
I got a philosophy degree, I'm not upset that I can't find work as a philosopher. It was my decision, and I knew that it wasn't a money making degree, so I get money elsewhere.
