Hmm. Tutor was speaking last night to his fellows, as they slept off their wine: "If satyrs gave sermons, they would require a pulpit to conceal their hairy behinds." A mysterious saying indeed. I would have thought a cassock would work as well.
Why date ordinary people who make you "go Dutch treat," when you can date a a person so rich they just give it away in bucketfulls to strangers! Join Wealth Bondage, a headhunting firm and a exclusive dating club for persons of substance and those who want to be. Procure yourself a generous-minded millionaire for an hour, a week, or an entire lifetime. Compare to our competitors. Felix del Campo says, "I have tried the other upscale headhunter matriomonial services, but all I got out of it was a sore butt from playing polo. Through connections made here in wealth bondage I have been able to date half the women at Council on Foundations and I am still going strong. Hypnotherapy made all the difference. Particularly when they hypnotize your date."
Dollon Satire. Reminds me of the old saw that "art holds the mirror up to nature." Admiring her reflection, the hunchback murmurs, "On me it looks good." Satire must wound to cure, like the good surgeon, but until the knife bites deep, the results are nil. Felix, until the victim howls, either in pain or better yet in the laughter of self-recognition, you have not done the job. With her own best interest in mind, keep cutting, until the distempered bits have all been excised. I suppose complacency is to satire what anesthetic is to surgery, but complacency tends to wear off during an extended operation. Keep at it!
From a telephone sampling of more than 2,000 households, university
researchers found that Americans rate atheists below Muslims, recent
immigrants, gays and lesbians and other minority groups in “sharing
their vision of American society.” Atheists are also the minority group
most Americans are least willing to allow their children to marry.
The Bible is an enormously complex and polyvocalic Text, and mind you, I am a connoisseur of strong fiction. What have atheists to show of comparable literary merit? As for the fine points of dogma, well, I leave that to Biblical Scholars. All countries have their idigenous creeds. America is no exception. Quite a colorful place. No sense getting off on the wrong foot. Hindus, how are they ranked? Not on the survey, I guess. That would be good news.
This is why I hate scientists. They hate God, they hate prayer, and they hate America. Probably there were devil worshippers doing the praying, or liberals. Did they test for that? Did they eliminate liberals from the prayer groups? No! Of course the liberals were praying to kill off the patients and make a mockery of God. Liberals are Satanists. Next time, how about making sure those doing the praying were born again? Jesus! The things people do in thy name. Turn upon them thy righteous wrath. In thy name I will burn them out, root and branch.
Weinberger on Gather.com: Community, excellence, and popularity; are they opposing ideals when users (some excellent, some mediocre) rate posts? How does one create a community of equals in which excellence is both popular and uibiquitous? (Harvard? Dumpster?) Omidyar.net too raises these questions. What I have enjoyed about the comments at WB is the high quality, though we have never had an admissions department in the Dumpster. It is open to all, it is just that most don't get it and pass by in mystified silence.
