OMG! WHAT ARE SOME OF YOU GUYS ON?
Is MCN really where one finds the sport’s greatest concentration of onanistic trivia & hopelessly mistaken and/or cyclopean opinion masquerading as fact? Or is that the exclusive preserve of David Emmett over @ Moto Matters? Let’s examine & ponder on a few quotes from contemporary philosophers to help explain this phenomenon:-
“One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit.”
“In the beginning there was nothing, and it has been getting steadily worse ever since.”
“Imagine a dog idling in the foreground, a tree in the middle distance, and a turnip lying on the ground behind the tree.”
“We know a lot. I know what food penguins eat. I know that phones used to ring, but nowadays squeal, when someone calls up. I know that Essendon won the 1993 Grand Prix. I know that here is a hand, and here is another.”
“To talk about thinking seems to me so presumptuous that I feel I owe you a justification.”
“Meta-ontology is the new black.”
“I offer here an account of the nature of faith, making no pretense to originality. The suggestion that two inebriated zebras once stood on their rear hooves, joined their front hooves, and sang Dixie, thereby creating Heaven and Earth, is original. When originality is a view’s only virtue, that view has virtues numbering less than one.”
“Once upon a time, in some out of the way corner of that universe which is dispersed into numberless twinkling solar systems, there was a star upon which clever beasts invented knowing. That was the most arrogant and mendacious minute of ‘world history’, but nevertheless, it was only a minute. After nature had drawn a few breaths, the star cooled and congealed, and the clever beasts had to die.”
I hope that helped & puts matters into some sort of perspective 4 U - especially the few misanthropes ...
