Congrats Muffs.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Ranting corner
The last time I typed freely about me wanting a mass murderer to go to jail and get his teeth abused, I was in a not so great Aspie forum site. They insisted that I was a sexist hole and a rape advocate for wanting the gunman's butt beat up tooth first. I wasn't able to talk about the entire male sex in the one sentence I had posted. They were the ones obsessing about 'adult' material, and putting every male under one negative color. Not me. I didn't let it go yet.

"Not, I’ll not, carrion comfort, Despair, not feast on thee;
Not untwist—slack they may be—these last strands of man
In me or, most weary, cry I can no more. I can;
Can something, hope, wish day come, not choose not to be."

Can you do the can-can ?
Carrion will comfort your despair.

The poet is referring to the comforting act of dancing and eating roadkill after he got depressed for some reason, maybe that he was going bald (strands of man refers to his hair).

[Image: smiley1628.gif] Don't try me too hard, dearest, if you don't want to end up as carrion much sooner than you expected.

I don't give a fuck how famous this bozo is, this is mostly random words strung together. Like hell I'm gonna try and make sense of them, Imma string the same senseless gibberish in Bulgarian. Just watch me. Dodgy

"Not, I'll not, carrion comfort, Despair, not feast on thee;
Not untwist — slack they may be — these last strands of man
In me ór, most weary, cry I can no more. I can;
Can something, hope, wish day come, not choose not to be.
But ah, but O thou terrible, why wouldst thou rude on me
Thy wring-world right foot rock? lay a lionlimb against me? scan
With darksome devouring eyes my bruisèd bones? and fan,
O in turns of tempest, me heaped there; me frantic to avoid thee and flee?

Why? That my chaff might fly; my grain lie, sheer and clear.
Nay in all that toil, that coil, since (seems) I kissed the rod,
Hand rather, my heart lo! lapped strength, stole joy, would laugh, chéer.
Cheer whom though? the hero whose heaven-handling flung me, fóot tród
Me? or me that fought him? O which one? is it each one? That night, that year
Of now done darkness I wretch lay wrestling with (my God!) my God."

"E se non passa la tristezza con altri occhi la guarderò."

Alfred Lord Tennyson I presume ? Quite some famous bozo... Laughat Also seems he wasn't above hacking one out under pressure from his publisher Big Grin

Nah, Tennyson's make at least some semblance of sense (though he's still a bozo, too Angel ). Some Jesuit joker, Gerard Manley Hopkins or some such stupid name. At least with this one I don't have to worry about rhymes and rhythm (or rhyme and reason, for that matter Dodgy )

Poetry! Pshaw!

I had sensed a disturbance in The Force. Consider

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

If all my family were dead, I would immediately put my neck under the train outside, but whatever.
