Anyone that tries to do this beyond university should be ashamed.
it was shit
what the box box was he on about?
Labour bash didn't work, now hate thread? :D
Bring it back, this is a lot less cool than your trolls of old.
The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent full of doubt.
Something like: The best lack all conviction while the worst are full of passionate intensity
Let's just say that I fire all this shit out precisely because I'm unsure, and because whatever sticks is the launching-pad for the next raid upon Truth, Beauty and everything in between
but I wouldn't wish you any other way
and it both looks and sounds like my IRL name
it's genius. fucking unalloyed genius
I don't even like saying that name
he doesn't try and come across as bright either. he just is very bright, and has a significantly large vocabulary that sometimes hamstrings him when the boisterous are out in force.
that was hilarious
Shame on you
but it's slightly amusing rather than a big deal. There's far worse habits people can have...
yes_ and still_here
they're both fun though
a necessary presence
crusty losers of the world unite!
I hope so.
is the answer to this thread, given that post
As I say, there's worse habits people can have...
^I think that works; guys?
is dull and not particularly clever. Bit needy really.
but really he's the neediest/most typically-DiS poster there is. Probably why people love/forgive him.
thinks he's Neitzsche's madman that has just come too soon. We aren't ready.
(shoe-horning in references I didn't read properly when I studied it)
but he generally does think he can put the world to right as apose to being look at me i am le smart s m r t...
So probably ^him
I am not particularly well read, in fact i don't read modern literature anymore (which is probably a bit close minded. Also I only speak a bit of french and german.
I honestly dont think Im a genius or anything...BUT I certainly dont feel as enamoured as many people do of reputation or position and so perhaps dont have as much of a problem expressing myself and riding roughshod over more group accepted sensibilities, which might seem arrogant.
I think that people in a hive mind often home in on 'maverick' users and criticise their not following 'common sense' and agreeing with commonly held 'truths' whilst ignoring the rarer truths that they mention because they are not held back by normal mindset conventionality, which is a shame.
I would like to convince/sway people, not because i am wonderful but because some of the extant views that people have were based on 'big men' who are not actually as big or wonderfull as the majority percieve, they probably just 'captured' thought at a point but thought is constantly changing as is always influenced by the past and others......no-one should be as much in awe of 'great men/thinkers' as they tend to be, we can all be great.
my differing arguments are probably tedious in their regularity and inevitability, but this is a result of the hive mindedness permeating almost everything, to subtle, (often mundane but blanketing effect).....I do not presume that I am cleverer than other deep thinkers, but I have to conclude that they do not suceed in breaking through mental barriers just as much due to technique and form and the need to present solid argument in a verbal reasoning form.........which is part of the problem, the fetischistic need for something to be provable in verbal logic, although verbal logic is not infallible (it can be made precise by legalize/scientific rigeur but this does not mean that this is always the commonest interpretation by the masses and since languages prime purpose is to convey ideas this can be flawed.
Obviously verbal reasoning proof is very important for 99% of the time as otherwise any old crackpot ideas will not be correctly measured against reasoned argument and ideas (although people who do demand provable argument then throw that completely out of the window when it comes to such things as political voting and proof of those claims)
It is important for so so much of the time......but then, because it can be applied so so many times there will also be many instances where to insist on something being able to be proved, when it cannot be easily proved (as re-education of misconceptions would need to be done on an individual to indivisual level - not everyone starts from same mental base) can mean that something that inherently IS A THING, will not be accepted as being a thing. i.e. something can exist without it being able to be proved to exist to people who are not entirely capable of being freed from subjectivity.
Animals are (to greater or lesser degree) capable of some logic without inguistic reasoning, humans are also capable of the same, if humans are not taught language or verbal resoning, they are still capable of reasoning, of course verbal resoning gives big advantage and a huge march to the alternatives.....but if you think it is all and everything then that is also a weakness.
Therefore perhaps it helps to try to not rely on cliches and patterns of speech and always 'oh so correct grammar and spelling' always, as these are mutable anyway, it does require flexibility on the percievers behalf and often i realise that i do make mistakes that would be misinterpreted by the way i present it, so really i should proof read it, but I am at work with a small window that makes it difficult, and then it takes away immediacy and sincerity anyway, conversational writing I think helps encourage sincerity and makes me feel more like im speaking to you rather than writing some bollocks essay.
Actually essays that you are required to write within academia are a load of old bollocks anyway arn't they?
PS for all of you who think i am wrong, could you please explain to me exactly why, given that we are rational, educated and stupendous advantage through technology and labour saving through technology? and that the 'rational' 'liberal' 'moderate' developed world has enjoyed ynparralleled wealth and power, the world is in such a perilous state, why is peoples lot becoming more unhappy, more unstable? why do people not have to only work a minimum? why is there such inequality to the point of some people not having enough to survive? why is our society not less mean? (given that we are free (relatively from fear and oppression)?
Why? given the expression and 'triumph' of 'rationalism' and huge wealth and resources and tech, is the world (or even our country) not PARADISE?
people need to be less certain about some things and get fuzzier
When they're actually just boring
See my previous post just up there ^
[I also like to give people condescending, off-the-cuff nicknames]
I have the highest IQ anyway and even beyond that theres some things that noone else in the world seems to understand as well as me; fairly sure I'm the smartest person who ever lived...at least the smartest person alive at the moment anyway.
So is education, funnily enough the two go hand in hand often.
He's dead anyway, the twat.
And you're claiming to be a genius?
Even if it is predicated by human beings speaking and writing it; the water does not dictate the tide.
Besides humbleness is a real word by your educated measure.
things that are as pleasing like this are much more likely to be indicating genius than people who follow logical convention and verbal reasoning rules, genius requires imagination as well
I would never ever lower myself to take the mensa test and become a member
It's not that high anyway, I'm sure anyone who can use a computer could score the same. It's a tongue in cheek post because clearly it's hypocritical to speak out against arbitrary education and dependence on society's yardsticks and then place so much stock in a ridiculous invented measure of intelligence.
Peace and love x
Well fuck that for one second, CG is a monumental cunt. Hope he fucks off soon.
CG feels threatened. Flattering maybe, gratifying certainly
He just leaves inflammatory threads hanging and never comments further, it's really supercilious and also, I like to think, a bit pathetic.
he's managed to steer well clear of coming across as clever though
how can you come across as a tory and clever?
Far more fun to watch piss all over itself.
so really you would advise that we just ignore you?
People won't though. It's why trolling on here isn't much fun these days. I'm not made to work for it anymore.
Let's be honest, there's some right wangs around.
or something equally shit.
basically anyone who quote music theory or philosophy on the music board.
