Dlowan- Are the schools in Australia so retrograde that you still use outworn and discredited Freudian terminology? By this time you should know that Freudian "projection" theories are hopelessly outdated.

Actually, new research is supporting some of the theories about ego defence mechanisms rather nicely.


May I suggest you have a look, and try some less primitive ones?

Bernard old boy, why the bloody hell have you started asking all these silly questions?

If you have an inbuilt desire to test people's general knowledge, why not start a thread in the trivia and word games section.


By the way, having lived in Radlett for most of my early years, I not only know the "ins and outs" of "A Clockwork Orange", I also watched quite a bit of it being filmed.

I have an earlier thread somewhere that went into this in some depth, if you'd like me to find it for you....

I thought Wanking was a town in China, until I met BernardR.

I beg your forgiveness Lord E for putting in my two cents' worth. I was merely trying to point out that being au fait with a Clockwork Orange has little to do with being British. Do we have to call in Francis to answer the riddle about Cyrano de Bergerac?

If the British do not know more about their excellent countryman, Anthony Burgess, than most other people, I have underestimated the literary excelllences of the British people. I do not think I have!

Of course, I am delighted that Lord Ellpus knows a great deal about Burgess and the Clockwork Orange. I think that such knowledge, as he exhibits in his link is quite superior to any irrelevant comments concerning flatulence.

But that is only my opinion!

end of quote

Alas, as usual, she gives no references. And that is why I do not believe her. New? research--------Supporting? some??? of the theories about ego defence mechanisms???

There is nothing in the above sentence about Projection, which is where Dlowan started out>

How sloppy!!!!

Good for you. Lezzles! I am glad to see Australia has people who read! I am very much afraid that Lord Elpus concentrates his literary scrutiny to coprophiliac activities. If you read his posts, you will find he appears to be fascinated with that function!


I'm sorry I didn't reply in your required time limit, BernardR, as real life seems to interrupt my time here on A2K now and then. I will make every effort to respond straight away, in future, as I now know that this sort of tardiness seems to upset you.

I'm also pleased, well honoured would be a better word, to note that you spare some of your valuable time, reading my posts so thoroughly, in order to arrive at such an accurate summary of my character.

Feeling guilty that I've never done the same with your posts, I attempted to read them when I first logged on this morning, but fell fast asleep after just two or three.

I then had a vivid dream about undergoing deep root canal treatment at the Dentist's.


I am now late for work. Thank you.

I will make another attempt tonight, at around 11pm, as I am totally out of cocoa.

There was no riddle, Francis. Some of the left wing morons on this thread never read Rostand's marvelous play!

I referenced Cyrano's lines in order to respond to a poster who thought that brevity was witty. As you may recall, Francis, Cyrano absolutely devastated him with his comment--

"Such, my dear sir, is what you might have said, Had you of wit or letters the least jot: But, O most lamentable man!--of wit, You never had an atom, and of letters You have three letters only!--they spell Ass!"

My advice to you, Lord Ellpus, is never to read any posts which cause you to have such dreams. Scroll past them.

As Hamlet says:

"For in that sleep, what dreams may come?" Indeed!!

The problem is, Bernard, that people are generally in a dichotomy. They tend to identify themselves with the heroes, real or imaginary, while associating other people with the villains.

In some cases this can be schizophrenia.

Good idea Bernard.

I won't read through your posts after all, for fear of having more Dentist's nightmares.

But I now have a dilemma. I am out of cocoa, I'm not going to be reading your posts....how the devil am I going to get to sleep?

Can you suggest anything that is as equally tedious and boring that I can flick through?

Really! Wow, I never knew!

I'll do a search now, Deb, but if there's any hint of them bringing on a root canal scenario, I'll just go to Amazon and order a book on advanced accountancy or something.

I just looked at three posts and yes, I think you're right.

Exactly the same pompous style. Well spotted.

Lord, if you are ever in need of a laugh, do read this post some time:

Wait, actually ... I have a minute ...
