OUCH!

As anticant has been exhorted elsewhere to 'lighten up', we thought this might amuse some Snug regulars - if not others.

Antiprank does not need to "lighten up" because he is always a spark in the dark.
he just needs a good blow job every now and then to get the flames going.

Spring is springing.
The whole world is in our hands.
Today a bus driver asked me to guide him in to backing his bus.
I am important.
I am confused.
I like flowers though.........

LavenderBlue : Of course you would say that. "Like flowers" you do.

Unfair.

As a male I have only twolips.
Those others, like LB and all, they have fourlips.

Time to change that methinks.

The REAL gnostic stuff is to be found in /The New Adventures of Jesus/, by Foolbert Sturgeon, 1970 /ca/. Jesus comes back to wind up a visiting professor (of religion) at Sump College, in Indiana. He is much-vexed by horny 'baby-boom' co-eds ("Wow! A chance to ball CHRIST! Shit....") & his most memorable addition to the body of gnostic lore is the statement to the american students, that "the problem isn't sin -- it's STUPIDITY!"

"It's STUPIDITY" - so right! That's what I keep telling the conspiracy theorists of all stripes. Cockup rules, not Macchiavelli.

I agree with Eric Berne that nobody is incurably stupid unless they have physical brain damage. So it's back to 'educashun, educashun'. How do you teach/persuade people to think for themselves? I count myself fortunate for having been at one of the few seats of higher learning - Cambridge, UK - where we were expected to consider more than one side of a question.

Don't tell him I said so, but anticant is way too ancient for all of them Spring larks. The only blowing and poking that goes on around the burrow these days is me kindling the still-needed log fires to warm his creaky bones.

TOO Right, Lads -- the ninety-nine /per cent/ of these conspiracy-phantasies, about The Jooz, The 'illuminati' and the House of Windsor (not to mention /their/ centuries-old struggle with the Vatican!), these chappies supposedly running everything...the lot /is/ an absolute load of the old shit. The true-believers in this stuff(as do religionists & science-fans!), of course, /do/ betray a most becoming & child-like longing for it all to be true: 'If ONLY somewhere, somewhen, SOME of these brainless simian mammals WERE that clever...' But, at the end of the day, it is aught but the usual weary statistical load of the usual sort of sociopaths, all feeding off the browsing & dull, normal, clientised. And, alas, clever as /they/ may be, these /egomanes/ I am scribbling about & at least at the instant of getting their nut, even so, it IS nothing but the SAME God-damned stupid plotting at virtually every point of the compass....

IN Other words, if one actually /knows/ oneself, warts & all, one knows all about it before even a word be said.

ON THE OTHER HAND, there are some pretty rum inconsistencies between the official account of 9/11 and eyewitness reports. I used to be completely sceptical about all the towers-collapse conspiracy theories until I read Yankee Doodle's blog. There's something unaccounted for...

Emmett said...

STILL, Antimacassar, 'tis not evidence of anything truly grandiose; certainly not in the case of /my/ hyper-credentiallised baby-bombing ex-hippy generation. Virtually /all/ of the 'conspiracy' on the part of my Garrison Keillor-people /is/ dim & dionysian; 'tis fatally to cross-purposes; and, mainly in aid of snaring some episode of sex or another tawdry, with one anothers' underage children.

THIS All squares with 'Yankee Doodle's' findings, of course; and, it should come as no surprise to anyone who has any actual insight whatsoever, into the unsupervised pranks & japes of the statistically-dominant non-moral human animal.

NOW, As to the 'work' part of these busy, busy souls' days, and their 'professionalism' (what these gentry call what they get up to during the day, at least when they are up and dressed -- and which, mainly, is to fiddle with their suitcase-computers and 'crunch' numbers), some parasites who have particularly snug abcesses rotted out for themselves in the body-politic (in the so-called 'intelligence' agencies), /may have/ had a smidgen or two of info before 11 September (2001) and thought it best to keep mum & to let the 'sand niggers' pull something....

IF so, this verifiably was in the interest of certain half-baked & totally rubbish, supposedly historical, 'theories'-- based, all of it, on a rather-deliberate mis-reading of Machiavelli.

FOR One thing, the more stellar goofs among certain New Cunt [Fr, 'neo-con' (n, sing), /NB/ -- BW] factions positively long for the good old days of the 'cold' war; and, some at least, rather presume to think that an event on the order of Pearl harbour would be 'good' for the country -- to alert the 'heartland' country-and-western WalMart-niggers (/sic/) to the excitement & delights of adventures overseas, with foreign women and so forth....

OTHERS 'Working' among the fourteen or seventeen (!) federal spy-rackets, one /cannot/ doubt, simply hoarded their personal bits of the puzzle away in their vests, or rolled up in their vials of pharmaceutical 'Viagra', all in a perfectly unexceptionable & professionalist attitude of -- /attentisme/!

BASICALLY, 'Tis the classic picture of entrenched competitors for 'free money' from off the government for their rival and everywhere-otiose agencies, all treading upon one anothers willies, /not/ speaking to one another, all virtually without any authentic new ideas or concepts -- and, /only after the fact/, scheming to beat Hell, to cover their over-paid and utterly not-productive tracks.

ALAS, I know myself too well to expect seriously any more than that of /these/ post-religious & post-modern characters; most of whom for a fact are, if not dumber, then certainly a whole lot less imaginative than am I -- or, /us/?

THAT Is not to say that perhaps /some/ amok rascals with more cunning than morality absolutely did not mine the WTC bldgs beforehand, with dynamite and other high-explosives; but, in itself, such stuff -- /if/ true -- is only /lurid/, at best; but, hardly unexceptionable; certainly not any sort of source of wonder, not in the professional terms of a vacant and pampered generation.

A Load of wild animals running about, with the technology to 'instantaneousatise' their phantasies....

SEEN It all 'before' -- many thousands of years hence!
