The Simpsons quotes:
“Attention, all honor students will be rewarded with a trip to an archaeological dig.” – Principal Skinner
“Yay!” – Honor Students
“Conversely, all detention students will be punished with a trip to an archaeological dig.” – Principal Skinner
“Oh, no.” – Detention Students
“Homer Simpson does not lie twice on the same form. He never has and he never will!” – Homer Simpson
“You lied dozens of times on our mortgage application.” – Marge Simpson
“Yeah, but they were all part of a single ball of lies.” – Homer Simpson
I do love the Simpsons, they are contained in a perfect universe of sorts that encapsulizes our world while also being their own thing. They have been around almost as long as I have. And they change over time I think, like people. While never aging, rarely if ever changing jobs. They change emotionally, and yet physically they stand still. A picture, unlike with humans that can be examined and reexamined with a new story each week.
And some people say that Simpsons isn’t as good as it used to be, that it’s changed. But is it the writers who have changed, or the characters themselves that have asked it of them to be changed? One tells a story, and when a character says something unexpected, even as one wants to deny, it is often more lively to go along with them maybe.
poem by me, Untitled:
i went to a war
but they said i wasn’t invited
i could kill, i said, begging
scoffing they replied i hadn’t had the blood
i wanted to challenge that
but i guess they were right
what good would it do anyway.
Mini thoughts of the day: Philosophy: Deluze: A rhizome is something that does not have a particular order or hierarchy. in a map for instance, there is no ‘starting’ point or ending point.
On another note, the internet is a great opportunity to meet like minded people where you not normally. But it is also frought with new challenges. For one we can not see each other, and that creates a distance. It is probably harder to get to know who someone is.
Also there is less consistency. If someone puts up a blog and someone comments on it, there is no way of knowing who that will be.
Whereas at a place of work, it is often much more predictable for who and why people will talk to you.
Either way, the internet is still an interesting place. One that for better or for worst people are using.
What is it that there is to learn? And what will learning this thing ultimately do?
If I learn abstract algebra, will it change me for the better in some way?
Speaking of philosophy and these sorts of questions like to be or not to be, these sorts of questions are like trances as one could get locked in words without answers forever.
