i wish i knew what sincerity meant
is this paranoia or naivety?
Arguing on the internet is like competing in the Special Olympics, even if you lose you’re still a human being with feelings and something to contribute to the world.
This is amazing.
what just happened
is this the endgame to the Windows95Tips guy?
We’re all on the losing side of this. It’s her world, not ours. She’s ridiculous, but because she anticipates the coming idiocy; we are ridiculous because we are the clinging, wailing, bemoaning past, formal and pedantic and right. This is a war for the zeitgeist, and Langer and Nostrich are our avatars. Godspeed, fellas.

how should we feel?
should i feel bad for feeling the way i currently feel?
Our world resembles the night sky, since all those stars we see shining together, and which seem to exist in the same plane as though painted on a plate, actually bring us their light from different times — a few are thousands of light-years away, some are nearer, perhaps half a century off — and when we, often awestruck, gaze at them, we see this mottled past, and if we are wise we try to correct for and understand the differences; not always easy, since the spangle of the skies does resemble in its simultaneity and dazzling presence, Las Vegas’ seductive signs. But the stars (or the light we admire in the stars’ stead) do not constitute a community. The stars do not constitute a heavenly society. The stars stand in a vast chill of indifference and send out for no reason their wholly lonely and utterly meaningless beams.
