Tell me Dogen, have you ever had a close encounter with death?

Upon realizing that you've survived, you become ecstatic, extremely happy.

You start laughing like a maniac, screaming that you're alive, hugging your own body, patting it down to see if you're still there; checking to see if you still exist.

You start hugging and kissing strangers indiscriminately, DAMN THE CONSEQUENCES, I'M ALIVE.

To that sort of person, nothing matters, he simply wants others to feel the extreme joy he is experiencing.

He wouldn't even care if he got slapped.

Such a person finally understood the value of life.



Human contact is an essential expression of existence.

Surely you must understand this Dogen.


Has anyone commented on how absolutely ridiculous this post is?

this is just crazy.


Did you notice who was posting it?

Did you notice his past posts?

Did you notice the pattern of incoherence?

What I'm starting to enjoy is getting to wonder what you are going to bad internet psychologist diagnose me with next. Right now I engage in a constant life act to protect my 'fragile ego' and I cannot be seen to have been passionate about anything.

Before that, it was that I 'possess unhealthy degrees of spite'

Before that it was that I only respond to Thy when he 'intimidates' me.

Before that it was.. uh, iunno. it gets hazy that long ago. can't remember.



BUT because you haven't responded to my question, the sense I am getting is that, indeed, you legitimately don't understand how my question was relevant. That is not an issue of miscommunication.

You are functionally challenged beyond the ability to rationally process our concerns about your positions or arguments. Of course you disagree I caught you dead-to-rights on your citation dishonesty; you do not possess a mind that functions rationally enough to understand how you were intellectually dishonest.

(I know news at 11 right)

Now, no, I'm not going to make love to you but I am pretty sure there are some girls at raves who you can walk up to and kiss without their permission because you Know what it means to be Alive or whatever. Please don't get arrested!

OK that's all, boggling out window now

Which is interesting, because being inebriated itself, under certain conditions, is itself a crime, like public drunkenness.

I can't be held responsible for that! I was drunk at the time.

Oh for fuck's sake. I have been checking up on this picture/famous "romantic" kiss and I had something to say. And then explosion of Sam and Thy. Dammit guys.

What I was going to say - when I saw that picture for the first time, I thought that the girl must not be enjoying herself. The explanation I hear was that soldiers were kissing every girl and that was just the one that was shot. It just doesn't look romantic at all. To me the picture always seemed to show over excitement on the part of the men coming home, not romance.

Yeah wow guys. I'm not even a little sorry I missed this because I was busy.

Las: Yeah. I honestly don't remember my first thoughts when I saw the picture. It was eons ago and I wasn't in the habit of forming many opinions when I was that age.

in other pro-feminism news - judge makes an excellent ruling throwing out a case where an employer tried to deny female workers birth control coverage in the health insurance plan because it violated his religious sensibilities. hopefully this will set course for this nonsense to die.

Saw this story. A school cuts a teacher over sexy photos. First things I read on this story sounded even worse, but it doesn't matter. Even the full story is still a load of BS.

Quote:
Tiffany Webb, a highly regarded guidance counselor at Murry Bergtraum HS for Business Careers downtown, was fired after 12 years with the Department of Education because photos of her in lingerie and bikinis from her early career as a model are still floating around the Internet.

Webb disclosed her former career when first hired. Yet she was investigated by the DOE three times — and twice spent a year in the “rubber room” — while officials probed the photos.

She received nothing but satisfactory ratings, and was respected at Murry Bergtraum, where she juggled a caseload of 540 students.

Last Dec. 23, days before Webb was to get tenure as an $84,200-a-year guidance counselor, she was dismissed for “conduct unbecoming” a DOE employee.

That sounds like a lawsuit. I'm not even a fan of litigation in many cases, but given the prior investigations and satisfactory ratings it seems like she'd have a pretty easy case.
