Advice on Transcending Cool
« on: October 17, 2013, 10:21:17 AM »
It has been stated elsewhere, quite truthfully I hasten to admit, that Mor Ephrem trancsends cool.  If anyone, especially Mor, has advice on how this can be accomplished, please post in this thread.

I would be intersted too.  Is it a state of being?  Or merely transcending temperature?  A physical or spiritual state?  I must know!
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

I can't tell you how to transcend cool, I can only live as I do and model it for you.  It is for each person to try and emulate me, but whether or not they have the capacity to transcend cool depends on how they were created. 

For starters, though, I will observe that "cool" is spelled "cool", not "ceol", "crcl", etc.  :P
"Do not tempt the Mor thy Mod."

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

You are a model?  A male model??  Now....cool is rapidly being approached.  But you have yet to enlighten us on what it is about how you live your live that enables you to transcend cool.  Please, Mor....

Being vague is cool.

So....one can transcend cool by not being vague??  Or is it by being so incredibly vague that clarity is imminent?

EDIT:  I just went back and looked that up again.  My head exploded and now my monitor and keyboard are a huge mess.  Thanks, Papist. ::)

Sorry about that. :(  Here is a picture of an asymptote. It's a line that the graph of a function approaches but never actually reaches. Thus, real cool might be something some one approaches but never actually reaches. It was a dumb post, so sorry about that. But I'm sure it won't be the last dumb post I produce.  :D
 
The dotted lines below are asymptotes.

Yeah.  Already saw the darned picture.  My head just re-exploded.  Thanks again, Papist. ::) ;D ;D

But...wait...NOT everyone is called "Singh" and it's not a first name.  Unless of course, one is named Singh Singh, which just happens to rhyme quite nicely with the name of a prison in New York.

You seem to have done it.  Congratulations, my good man!

EDIT:  Okay, I take it back, based on your edit.  How terribly disappointing  :( :(.

2nd EDIT:  What?  Wait...what are you doing to me??

Can't fool me no more! I'm on to your trickeration. ;D ;D

Kornfuzion is an interesting genre of music.  Can't say I like it all that much, but....

Is that Vladimir Putin? Is there anything he can't do?

Mor no longer posts on OCNet.  He follows threads, posts his responses daily, occasionally starts threads, and responds to private messages when and as he wants.  But he really isn't around anymore.

A man who can teach birds how to fly has obviously transcended cool, in all its manifestations.
