Teaching you proper English grammar and spelling.


But I am not.

Only kidding.

That is so cool and something to bear in mind.

If I thought that everything I did was determined by my circumstancse and my psychological condition, I would feel trapped.


What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.

I think people should be well paid for making accurate predictions of future events, and I think that when someone does, they can be.

Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.

No one deserves to be paid for doing nothing. But that's the reason I'm well paid. I suppose I could say that I'm well paid for what I've done before retiring.

An old man who was either a fool or a genius told me that everyone must do a dollar's work for a dollar's pay.

Again, I don't think money should be paid to those who do not contribute to society. But would that be realistic and practical? Of course not.
