The Master Board / Re: Funny Videos and Stuff
« on: Today at 04:22:14 AM »
This scene from "Its always sunny in Philadelphia" is really funny to me.
I didn't think much about it but looking back at it now they may have been pointing to something else much larger. . .


The whole nightman/dayman thing is deep.

Does anyone know what charlue day and glenn howerton were up to pre fame?

The Master Board / Re: When I was a child...
« on: December 17, 2017, 06:28:52 PM »
When I was a child... I had my 40th birthday. I remember thinking I should start to act like an adult. I sold a motorcycle and bought a car. I bought adult clothes designed for success. I let reason and intelligence be my guide.
Later I realized that it wasn't working for me so I dumped the posing. I lost some of my new 'friends', (some were quite attractive) but realized I didn't like being around them much anyway.
A was also reminded that 'If it's not broke, don't fix it'. I'd like to say that that adage was a lesson learned but Im still learning it. For me that rabbit hole runs way deep.
A friend here posted a Darth Vader vid with me in mind. I had not forgotten to address it and say thanks, I was just waiting for the right time.
Vader and Skyrim's Paarthurnax are powerful archetypes for me.
Vader's (Anakin's) fall was lamented by our man Obi Wan because Anakin was the 'chosen one', the one who was to bring balance (baal-lance?)(baal-ants?) to the force(Source). The consequence of that fall we see in the 'prequel' films. In the end it wasn't Vaders Dark Lord who redeemed him, it was his child (Luke's) faith in him. That never faltered, it was a faith that had no intelligence or reason but just was.
I wondered too, about what the balance of light and darkness meant. I dismissed the concept of 'means justifying the end' that some hold so I was kinda stuck.
Nicks persistent hint that Hegel's dialectic was misunderstood was were I found a clue. Looking at the dialect from a positive viewpoint clarified many things for me. One was that the dark-light thesis antithesis could result in a synthesis which is far more than it's 'con'stituant parts. So much more so that It makes light and darkness nearly irrelevant. I have my neck out here a little because I haven't digested this fully but I think it's close.

The day I saw 'Return of the Jedi' I visited a mentor. He wasn't there but his young daughter was. I asked her if she has seen the movie and she had. We talked about it for a while and I joked (half-joked) that if there was hope for Darth Vader, there was hope for me.
She said, "Yes, all you have to do is take off your mask." You could have knocked me over with a feather.

Paarthurnax too was saved (spared) by a child. Dovahkin can mean child of the dragons. You players spared Paarthurnax right? Say what?
It occurs to me at this moment that Anakin and Dovahkin sound closely related. But Ive already been too long winded.

Do you often stop running a meter from the finish line?
Thanks Coach, sometimes I still need a kick in the pants.

we all do, Cooperation is the most selfish act one can engage in.

Would you elaborate? I typically feel that I must set my own desires in the back seat in order to cooperate.

Why do the most heinous,vile people donate genrously to charities?

An odd loophole of universal law is that all actions generate currency, regardless of intention.  Doing good for others is doing good for oneself.

The physical world is the mean average of our beliefs and collective beliefs.

So if a minority want to alter the physical reality without engendering popular belief they must generate tremendous amounts of currency to "fund" the change in physical world.

‘Not a typo’: Disbelief as Boston Globe confirms median net worth of black Bostonians is $8


The Boston Globe had to explain there were no typographical errors in its report about Boston’s black community. Readers contacted the paper after it reported the median net worth of African-American households in the Boston area is a paltry $8.

https://www.rt.com/usa/412898-black-bostonians-net-worth-8-dollars/

----
The net worth doesn't surprise/ shock me (way too many Americans are saddled down with debt and can't afford to buy a home).  The phone calls of outrage made me laugh though.

That figure is arrived at by subtracting debts from assets, but still it is trying to push a false equivalency between poverty and criminality

The first rule of book club is do not talk about the book club
I expected to hear that in the post :<
Hail Hat!
Im a new poster here too. Two months I think, I don't know time is weird here. Other than common courtesy I haven't noticed any other rules.
To each his own I would say.
I have two metaphors I live by here at the moment.

1. When I jump out of the plane(post), be sure to remove my parachute first.

2. When I navigate the threads I keep the weight on the balls of my feet, knees slighty bent,
upper body upright, and remember to breath.

Some of your posts lately have been quite intellectually stimulating.   Please tell me, do you use khufu breathing, fire breathing, holothropic breathing or is it another method that you use before you post?

This inquisitive padawan would love to know...

Who needs parachutes?

There is only one way to breath and many misunderstandings of it.

I doubt any of you would expect this reference from me. But this is deeply applicable.

Lovely (and appropriately applicable) song.  You are well versed in a variety of subjects so none of your references surprise me anymore.

Was Jonathon Larson a sacrifice?

He was a self sacrifice. Its no coincidence he died the nightbefore his show opened.

He literally poured his soul into that production.

Read his interviews and he dropped clues.

Than of course theres this: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hloIgAU6I0o
