Hows it going?

Ha! I knew you would ask, and would have to respond:
England!

Catching up with some family and introducing my wife. We'll
be seeing my dad who has (kindly) planned the five days, and
has made reading about it already extremely tiring. Siblings
will be seen, hotels, car rides, late nights, early
mornings.

Problems have already risen, as usual, regarding the dogs
and who will look after them, last minute cancelations etc.
Nightmare.

not aware of, and parts of Norfolk. Buckinghamshire, does
that exist?

You're an AMPI MAX worshipping traitor from w M w
arseworld.

You're hurting the world with your hacking and lack of
decision making.

I think you're great though, and kind, if not slightly
intrusive.

hacking? i dont know how to hack honestly, i used to do a
bit of programming if thats what you mean and i probably
could hack if i wanted

sorry, i didnt mean to be intrusive just wanted to start
conversation

Honestly Hypers, the lack of aural tone with text means I
probably often come across as a cunt, when really I'm
actually a nice, sensitive person. I do my best too, and I
appreciate you start conversations.

work as for what

work as a joke. for a joke to work, it can't be composed
entirely of references that no one gets. then you have to
explain your references, and by the time you do, it's no
longer funny. heck, i linked a youtube video, and it was
still confusing... then i had to explain my explanation.
that's starting to get towards funny, but it has nothing to
do with my dismal failure of a joke. is there another person
on the planet who knows what kanish is and can
immediately recall the relevant don vito rant (viva la bam
4x03)? i may be alone. only ampi understands me

nothing at the moment really. i have been fascinated by all
kind of books in the past, the last wave i had i think was
at the beginning of 2010s, with spiritualism and the likes,
but its chinese philosophy that put my reading will to sleep

it's fantastic. it's also rather 1800s-grade sexist, but in
the edition i have, the author addresses this in a foreward;
more or less stating "that's just how it is down there." sad
but true

"The story describes a two-dimensional world occupied by
geometric figures, whereof women are simple line-segments,
while men are polygons with various numbers of sides"

ooh he wouldnt get away with that nowadays!


 

offline EpicMegatrax from Greatest Hits on 2017-03-11 22:43 [#02515080]
Points: 16067 Status: Regular



exactly. he didn't even get away with it back then, hence
the foreward... it's written "in character" like the rest of
the book, but it essentially says, "this is a parable;
please just let go of the hangup on sexism for the sake of
hearing out my full argument." if you can manage this, the
book goes superbly

there's a lot of deep wisdom about the whole structure of
human society in there. it's also human society as seen from
200 years ago, so you'd think it'd feel stale... instead, it
just feels stunningly prescient. there's a point where he's
using his weird parable of polygons to essentially say,
"inbreeding within the noble class will rapidly make them
more noble, but they will produce fewer and fewer viable
children unless they occasionally marry a woman of lower
class because she has big tits. without this, the nobility
would die off"

given that this was before genetics, that's pretty
impressive

Points: 27822 Status: Regular



yes i think there is a word for this where the occasionally
have to breed outside there social circle, to refresh the
diminishing gene pool

the royal family have some really weird selective hereditary
diseases like porphyria because they have multiple copies of
the same gene, like pedigree dogs

they were big into animal husbandry back then. make of that
statement what you will

i figure observation of livestock and human reproduction
over the years led to conclusions that were correct (dangers
of inbreeding) but no one understood why. i suspect the
author himself didn't realize how spot-on he was with his
choice of metaphor

without knowledge of dna you can sort of understand how they
believed stuff like physical appearance reflected a persons
demeanor, i think there is alot of madness in the royal
families of europe

i'm a cunt?

Elagabalus (c. 203–222, ruled 218–222) catapulted
venomous snakes at the people of Rome, invited guests to
dinner only to give them inedible bread and leave lions in
their bedrooms, used children's entrails for Divination,
held lotteries for which the prizes consisted of wooden
boxes containing bees, dead dogs and flies.


now that guy was a cunt. i'm merely annoying
