though I've marinated meat in patchouli,
I've never been limber enough to taste it, and, not having engaged in BiMMF, I've missed that.......

Um, if you had read the survival guide you would have seen in the fine print that the opinions of Canadians dont mean shit.

just bring some tim hortons, and keep quiet like the rest of your ilk.

you see? you SEE!

this is why the fast ferry between toronto and rochester went belly-up.


because canadians are too nice, and polite.

they did'nt have the heart to tell us it was a stupid fucking idea.
we spent 40 million of the taxpayers dollars on a boat to nowhere.


why would anyone ever want to visit Rochester?

our cuisine?




being from across the pond, you know damn well why i'm bitter.

We try to please...... pleaz understand. But you..... you slap us awake and snap us out of our deep sleep. Thanks for that (still polite, eh?) Shall we be meeting on the playa? I hope so.

Never been to Rochester (and now....now the ferry is gone, so......) Heard the food is okay, though.

Well I think this is a glorious idea, and destined for complete, silent success. Simply combine the temple burn with an explosion large enough to deafen all concerned. Easy.

Was it the Temple Burn in 2006 that had a gazillion big firecrackers in it? That was VERY cool.

freedom and respect

Postby yogi » Wed Feb 11, 2009 2:52 pm

I love being able to do whatever I want. That's one of the virtues of democratic societies. One of the most basic problems with a society without any direction or leadership, is that the loudest, most obnoxious, richest, coercive people rule the show. There is no room for more feminine virtues, let alone listening to the wisdom silence imparts. This is a major problem for democracy.

It means that we run roughshod over all those who don't wish to yell at the top of their lungs, and drown out the other people who don't operate that way. There is diversity, but the megaphones are only seized by the manly. Even our women in politics have to be manly (e.g. Hilary Clinton).

This not a call for metrosexual culture; but it is a call for listening. What the poet F. Holderlin asked "what do you do when the gods have fled?" was answered by the action of listening. It is the obverse to solipsistic masturbatory speech and action.

Perhaps part of our 'evolution' brings us is a slowing down of freneticism to go forward in collective action. Perhaps part of the evolution of humans is our capacity to bring our purposes together, focused for moments at a time on a single purpose, consciously using our collective mind that already exists, but currently tugs the universe according to its chaos.

So, I invite all to cultivate appreciation. Appreciation for noise and silence, and the in between. Yet, without the din we cannot know the quiet, and without the silent, our noise has no meaning.

It has to do with the loudness of your voice, (possibly the aggressiveness and relentlessness of your bashing) and the number of times you post!


:!: Hint: To see who is, perhaps, too involved (i.e. inordinate number of waking hours devoted to ejaculating opinions on others), look at the NUMBER of posts each respondent has made. :idea:
