    Am I speaking in Russian?

    Maybe something more challenging, like Gujarati?

    More obscure, like Evenki?

    Maybe something fantastical, like Sindarin?

    I'm really quite curious, as I've been having a hard time getting people to understand the most rudimentary concepts lately. Even on this site! If I am speaking in some language other than English, it is purely subconscious and I apologize profusely!

    Any insights?

    Some of our participants are militantly ignorant.

    You're definitely on to something there. But it's not just the morons anymore. I'm perplexed.

    Stop quoting the Bible. It's so passé. Especially when they are paraphrased quotes. :biggrin1:

    Sometimes you to take into account that you can't make people be more than they are, but will evolve in time with experience, travel, education and the lessons we learn in life by teachers who are not condescending or arrogant. But I don't speak Russian I have only been lucky enough to visit the country and experience something and carry it with me.

    I was not saying anything about you but more about myself. In my life I have been called condescending, arrogant, rude, vain, shallow, cold and elitist. With time and the experiences that I have lived through, I have been called warm, and giving and etc...etc... Everyone finds their way on their terms. Truth be told I am most likely still all of these things, but as the lessons of time are learned these qualities balance each other. I've come to the place where I judge less unless someone who should know better does not.

    Right back at ya! I guess the point I was trying to make is...I was in Paris when I was a child, and again as a young adult and several times since. What I learned from these visits depended on the the place in life I was and what I was willing to see or experience. There are people who have never had to opportunity and dream about it, thus sharing our experiences if they are bitter or sweet will color their expectations and experiences.
    "If you were lucky enough to lived in Paris as a young man you will carry it with you for Paris is a movable feast."( Earnest Hemingway) I wish I could take credit for that but I am lucky enough to know what it means.

    Perhaps the newer format of the site has fomented a base of participation somewhat less erudite than those who frequented the place before you went on extended hiatus. More important matters are discussed at length these days, such as the importance of whether or not Dr. Manhattan was circumcised and how many posts he has this week. :rolleyes:



    It's l33t. U r teh fa!l. YSSCKY, n00b! LOLZ! :biggrin1:

    Now you've gone and made me get the dictionary. What's this "eeryooditay" word mean?

    And about Dr. Manhattan. Surely he IS circumcised. He MUST be. I can't live until i know for sure. Quick, check his posting count. I'm sure we can extrapolate from the hidden messages therein the true account of the story. There is some truth in it, right? Oh dear. Now I'll ruminate incessantly.

    :biggrin1:
