I wonder if Nietzsche could cook.

Probably not, he would have written about it at least once.

Thats the difference then, the century that lies between us. What men have learned.

Medellin is interesting to me since the days I followed Colombian football.
Have you ever set foot across the border?

Perhaps you can make philosophical points more often using memes. People generally don't take as much time seeking the implications of your phrases as they would have to to keep up with anything serious, the meme might explode you know, the aphorisms.

That looks pretty good.

Im always an inland-man. Massif Central in France, the Bavarian valleys in Germany, in the US the dusty central states, though I haven't spent much time there.

I actually mean this -
the place in which there is most true uncertainty in how hadrons will behave in terms of each other is the mind, especially when hooked into the giant electropsychic internet.

9gag is structurally the only place on the internet that undividedly gives me what one calls "hope" - faith in the future. Of mankind.

I consider myself pretty smart compared to my peers but what the children unleash on the internet in their good faith has a sharpness Ive never seen.

I think a lot has changed. But obviously I don't know. I feel Colombia is a country I understand though, because I grew up with a Colombian and went through the shit he went through about being adopted and obsessed with his culture, though I couldn't help him with it which was extremely frustrating. But though this I got a psychic impression of the country which I don't have yet with Venezuela.

Truth is, Colombia gets really dark around the border with us. That's probably the darkest Caribbean culture gets.

A culture like that doesn't die. It just gets smarter. The lesson they all learned from Escobar is: don't be so large.
