Am I the only one seriously bothered by the Hitler pic? Not because of the sexual pose but something else.

His sexy elbow-length gloves?  His sexy stockings?  His sexy heels?  What?

I actually was mocking Stormfront.org users. Have you ever seen that site? That was the first time I ever went on there.

I've long flirted with the idea of setting up a troll account there. It would start with me applying logic to some of their premises, becoming a champion of certain factions, and end with me posting a lot of interracial porn.

... the justification for buying the second cup. I guess I have to say that it is the thought that counts and leave it at that. ...

Fwiw I was privy to a conversation Jake had later that day with his friend Dirk, which discusses this a bit. I'll try to post it a bit later.

Already done on a more epic scale than you two could imagine.

The upshot from my metatrolling?

Every board is just like every other one. I learned a little about knitting, racialist theories, etc. to become members of all these boards, and I found out you all really like Lord of the Rings and see Hitler, Jesus, or whatever you think matters in it.

That is pretty much the purpose of all forums after about 1993.

Fwiw I was privy to a conversation Jake had later that day with his friend Dirk, which discusses this a bit. I'll try to post it a bit later.

I forgot to post yesterday and now some of the details of what I overhead have been forgotten! Sad  Well, the main point was that Dirk thought Jake was silly for doing it, and how could Jake honestly believe what he had said, and Jake was saying that it was the underlying idea or point that he was trying to make that counted. He said that there was no objectivity involved (and could not be), and that he just wanted to show or say, in an exaggerated way, how much he cared for Tasha. He said that for him to buy one mug showed her that he was thinking about her, but that to buy the second mug and come up with this whole rationale for doing so magnified or emphasized exactly how much he thinks about her.

I was going to tell you about the time Tasha asked Jake about her friend Brit getting breast augmentation done, and how Brit's boyfriend Todd was against it because he was insecure and afraid of losing her... but that seems too obvious. I think you can guess how that conversation went.

What would Tasha have to ask Jake about Brit's breast augmentation? It has nothing to do with her.

Tasha wanted to find out if Jake cared about things like breast jobs, and also to see what Jake thought about her friend (and, perhaps, if he had any attraction to her; Tasha can get quite jealous). Jake felt like it was one of those questions he couldn't safely answer. A lot of drama, misunderstood comments, and overly-long clarifications followed.

So there's a little get together next week that I can go to, but it's at this bar and grill and the prices are way more than I would normally pay. $10 for a hamburger? $27 for a steak dinner? Bah. On the other hand, if things go right the night could end quite well for me. I have the money to go, but should I?

Hey Orthonorm should I get married someday or should I follow in your footsteps and stay a single man forever? They both have their benefits and disadvantages. On the one hand, I won't get lonely if I get married, but on the other hand, I won't have to put up with nagging from my wife if I stay single. I'm really hesitant about children, so either way, I don't think I'll be having them.

This is great!!  Do you realize, JamesR, that with an attitude like that you might just be doing some woman a huge favor by staying single?!

Not really.

I know plenty of women selfish enough not to have kids, and not for the good reasons James has.

If you believe the garbage Isa says about how marriage is life on a beach with no kids.

Yeah I learned that the hard way once before. I'm not too picky however. I just want a woman who won't negatively interfere in my religious life and is physically attractive.

Having kids scares me. I worry about becoming a Sunday-only Christian if I have kids. At least if I don't have kids, I'll have more spare time and money to do something productive in this world like help homeless people.

But really where art thou Isa?

How's the girlfriend? Any tips? Advice?

It blew my mind he was dating. Juicy details please!

Hope he gets a prenup written up this time if they decide to marry

Hey Orthonorm should I get married someday or should I follow in your footsteps and stay a single man forever? They both have their benefits and disadvantages. On the one hand, I won't get lonely if I get married, but on the other hand, I won't have to put up with nagging from my wife if I stay single. I'm really hesitant about children, so either way, I don't think I'll be having them.
Just dont marry the first girl you fall head over heels for.

Yeah I learned that the hard way once before. I'm not too picky however. I just want a woman who won't negatively interfere in my religious life and is physically attractive.
Physically attractive won't interfere with religious life ... Wink

I pray you find a woman that takes care of you and treats you well.

This is great!!  Do you realize, JamesR, that with an attitude like that you might just be doing some woman a huge favor by staying single?!
Not really.

I know plenty of women selfish enough not to have kids, and not for the good reasons James has.

If you believe the garbage Isa says about how marriage is life on a beach with no kids.

Sorry, I should've been more specific.  If he presupposes that a wife would be nagging and he would have to put up with it he would be doing some woman a favor by staying single.

I don't recall Isa saying that marriage is life on a beach with no kids.  I'm not even sure what that might mean.  When I think of beaches I think of sand and all the places it tends to insert itself and how uncomfortable that can be  Grin Grin.  And I've been on plenty of beaches, too!

I thought sand in the vagina was the norm for you conservatives.

Thank you Shiny, you know, that really means very much to me. Given how much I've been backstabbed and hurt by women in the past--my mom included--that means very much. My biggest fear is ending up with a woman like my mom. She's the stereotypical Pisces woman.

I feel bad for poor old Isa. If you've ever talked to him, you'll find out that his ex-wife really screwed him over in the end. He's a good man too; he didn't deserve that at all.

So....What ARE you talkin' 'bout??

I'm not sure that I can put things any more clearly, to be honest. I know you are sincere, though, so I will try.

Animality imbues a half-hearted intellectual plasticity as long as you are willing to accept the consequences. One outcome of this, naturally, is that levels of specificity will degrade over time. The key is to maintain a strong core. You do not want to fall into a meta-Cartesian mindset which will bring you to the precipice--I speak of the abrogation of the dogmatic want. If you need further assistance please call the hospital and just read them what I have written in this post. They will know what to do.
