    Life and existence are such general topics, that everyone will have an opinion. So what is the point of bothering with those who don't even bother to capitalize their drivel? Maybe you can forgive that if it's a very narrow subject where other opinions are hard to find.

    Drivel gives most of us the certain knowledge that we are more intelligent than them. And its also fun to play with them. And sometiems relaxing.

    so i was talking to my older brother who said that god is all around us and i think this is total bunk because budhists say that we are god anyway. but i think i have the answer--it's like i am you and you are me and everything else is illusory. i'm thinking of becoming a buddhist but i think they have that one thing wrong in that consciousness is not absent but more like it's everywhere. but i'm still scared of hell because it's really hot and once i was burned by the stove--it hurt for days, and i imagine that's what hell is like. they could be wrong but there's lots of them and i know it sounds silly but um maybe it could be right. but i think i'm right. and here's my theory of time. before time there was consciousness, but before consciousness there was anti-time. anti-time and time surround consciousness in a perfect sphere. anti-space is then outside this sphere.

    That was surprisingly easy to do. Major keys are--no caps, no paragraphs, and long.

    you didn't have enough inappropriate commas.

    Perhaps I can add them for you?

    I think your use of periods could be more random as well... and you need... to use... that shit... like this... more often.

    Hey wait are you calling my posts drivel?

    Did you ever see that simpsons where lisa loved nelson and she went to his house and saw a poster that said something like "nuke the gay whales for jesus" and she was all "oh nelson that's terrible!" and he was like " *shrug* gotta nuke sumthin".

    I liked that. :m:

    No, no, it has to be groups of periods in anything but ones or threes. So........who cares? I.....like think that's total bs.

    So my understanding of the website is that he took random words and arranged them together into a phraseology that best made sense, using words clipped from philosophic articles?

    Is there any evidence to show that while he was arranging the words that he was doing his best to force them into a context that could be made into a coherent thought? That it wasn't really random at all?

    Sounds more like a buggy program or a hoax to me.

    Lighten up , guys. It was a joke at the expense of the drivel that often passes for academic philosophy (based on a famous ealier joke). It wasn't supposed to serious!

    You take the topic of 'drivel' too seriously to read a funny article about it? I'm confused.
