What are you doing?

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.

Remember the power glove?

Only from Nintendo Power.


Remember a movie called, "The Wizard" where Fred Savage has a retarded brother who ends up getting the high score on Double Dragon and gets whisked off to a huge nintendo competition where they debuted Mario 3 and he had to play against the mean kid who had every game and the power glove and all that? A classic.

Yes, fucking, I remember that. Only it was never released outside of the US or some mean shit like that they used to pull on us. So again, I only remember it from Nintendo Power and my half American friend who always had the newest latest.

I guess I could go find this thing right now.

An esoteric exchange?

Okay, I admit it. It's way, way, way over my head. And, I suspect, over the heads of others too.

But: Are you willing and able to take this exchange out into the world embedded in your own interactions with others? And then to note examples of what you mean by "revelation", "veil of the obscured", "staggering contrast"?

Or are you both just being ironic?

Perhaps the only thing more esoteric than your philosophy is your attempt to be...clever?

You know, if that's what this is. :wink:

I don't think anyone would deny the truth of what I said. Not even you in fact.

Im not exactly "mr clever" here. I am "mr uncomfortable look at reality"

On this thread? Esoterically? What does that even mean?!

Fixed Cross wrote: Im not exactly "mr clever" here. I am "mr uncomfortable look at reality"


Huh? You place "value" right next to "ontology", and expect us to believe that?

Let's try this...

We start up a new thread in the philosophy forum.

We focus in on a particular set of circumstances in which our respective views of realty might be judged by others here as making one more or less uncomfortable.

The most miserable sonofabitch wins. :wink:

Okay, I admit it. It's way, way, way over my head. And, I suspect, over the heads of others too.

The contrast is truly staggering indeed.. a liberating endeavour to go through, in shrugging off the old for the better-new.. but there’s always at least one thing that cannot be shrugged off: that, which is dearest to the heart.

But: Are you willing and able to take this exchange out into the world embedded in your own interactions with others? And then to note examples of what you mean by "revelation", "veil of the obscured", "staggering contrast"?

I thought I had: “Self-awareness.. as it currently stands, and not the Was of the past or the Would/Could be of post-now”. A mental-cleansing, as it were..

Or are you both just being ironic?

You mean in order to sound worldly, wordy, and clever? Nah!

The impenetrable idiocy of this woman evokes in me a raging lunacy so infuriating all I can do is scream at her lest I punch the bitch in the mouf. Talking about charging all the cops with murder because they didn't stop the one cop from holding the dude down like that? That little Chinese cop dude standing beside him. I promise you that guy didn't have a clue what was happening and sure as shit didn't foresee anybody dying as a result. That's the fucking troof. He might be dumb - what cop isn't - but he ain't no murderer. But when the victim narrative gets going on the left and them blacks folks get'ta being angry... well, sum muhfucka's gotta pay. Don't een care who it is long as he white and/or a cop.
