Emotions

Pure Hatred

I hate bugs. I hate them purely and honestly, unadulterated by reasons. I care not the slightest whit whether they be bad or beneficial. However small and faceless they may be, they fill me with loathing. I have no irrational fear of them; they give me no nightmares. I simply wish a very painful death on each and everyone of them. I would catch them and torture them if they were worthy of my time. As it is, I take an inordinate pleasure in...

Bible Verse Of The Day

The gang over at BV of The Day sent me this: Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Pretty good except for its being awful. In the first place, almost nobody knows what love is. In the second place, who cares? Who brainwashed us into thinking that this unknown thing is such a big deal? Off the top of my head, I can think of 744 things just as good but I’ll...

Our Thoughts And Our Prayers Go Out To [Bah, Blah, Blah]

Very shortly after the 9/11 attack on the Twin Towers, aggressive comedians started to tell jokes about what had just happened. Their detractors groaned and and objected: “Too soon, too soon.” But was it too soon? Did we have to have a period of healing? I’m on the side of the comedians. It is never too soon. Nothing is better proof to the enemy of our so-called resilience than that we meet them so quickly and that we...

The Fault, Dear Brutus, Lies Not With The Stars, But In Ourselves

I can’t remember much about the title sentence any longer, (I am not even sure I have it right), but I know it was Cassius trying to inveigle Brutus into his murderous plot. So is it with all of us. We want companionship in evil or just in our lack of understanding. How often have I heard people decrying the accomplishments of Shakespeare for no better reason than that they don’t like what he wrote. They may as well denounce lemon...
