My wording was incorrect, I meant an institutionalized education.


I thought "industrialised" was okay.

@edgarblythe,
I would imagine that the people named here--

Quote:
Major influences: Philip Wylie, Charles Dickens, Erskine Caldwell, Henry Miller, Jack Kerouac, Zen literature, James Joyce. Countless others. My favorite writings are A Christmas Carol; Marat/Sade; Opus 21 by Philip Wylie; An Essay on Morals by Philip Wylie; The Tropics Trilogy by Henry Miller; Desolation Angels by Jack Kerouac; Ulysses; Faust part one; Dr. Faustus by Marlowe; Zen Flesh, Zen Bones; Walden and Civil Disobedience.


will be whirling in their graves reading that gem ed. It does rather make it look that none of them had any influence on you at all.

Farmerman's statement could have been made by any one of those listed.

@edgarblythe,
Not the slightest chance ed. You are relying on your assertion. I'm not familiar with some of the writers but neither Joyce nor Miller would have stooped to such corn. You are using these guy's names to pin medals on your own chest. The Name-drop kid.

For it is a great sign and property of a fool (which Eccl. x. 3, points at) out of pride and self-conceit to insult, vilify, condemn, censure, and call other men fools (Non videmus manticae quod a tergo est) to tax that in others of which we are most faulty; teach that which we follow not ourselves:

I can imagine the smirking, self-satisfying complacency as you sat there typing out that profile of yourself. Crediting yourself with literary erudition so soothingly.

If you think Joyce and Miller had no senses of humor and eschewed the joke, pun or crudely reasoned humor, you have not read a word of either one of them.

@edgarblythe,
Actually my statement was a quote from The Green Mile, maybe not one of our greatest (by spendi's tackiness standards) authors but certainly a popular one

I think you might get a few ideas from Burton JT. It's on-line.

@farmerman,
Neither you nor ed can possibly claim that I have ignored you. My interaction with JTT has been spasmodic. You're behaving like one of those girls who I had a few dances with and then go off for one with another. Petulance.

But I understand. This is a soap opera--right? And Gilbert Seldes pointed out that soap operas had to be made in such a way as to be as soon forgotten as possible so that the same theme, the same story and the same joke can be repeated shortly thereafter without sounding like the same theme, the same story and the same joke.

You usually suggest we might get a room. What made you branch out into the creative hinterlands?

What's so amusing is that you can't see what a silly ****** you are fm. Just like Oliver Hardy.

"CAuse God dont make no junk"




God created tonsils and gall bladders so surgeons could make a living one day taking them out. It's called planning for the future.

If only humans could plan that far into the future.........

@parados,
That's pretty tame para.

Created also is the dopamine transmission reflex on the vision/cellular reflex excitations interface. There's a lot more than surgeons making a living out of that. It even generates serious and profoundly scientific discussions between expensively educated adults on the internet.

Perhaps you have White Coat Syndrome.

Can you not raise your game a little? Your example is well within the scope of 8 year olds.

You've made it abundantly clear, Farmer, that your purpose is to avoid any issues that cause undue trouble for your mind. This despite your protestations that you are ready to look at the evidence. In this regard you're much like Oralloy or OmSig.
