Karma whoring is the requisite corollary for non-anonymous trolling.
It's a LANoT.
No, 1:16:9. Our entire solar system moved to high-def monoliths shortly after 2001.
But local reception really degraded...
Leave it to motherfucking Jeremiah Cornelius, whose opinions are so fucking important that he just has to barge his fat ass to the front of the line to reply to the post which will get him closest to the top, no matter whether that post has anything to do with what he wishes to say.
What an asshole.
Thanks for living in the past.
First he urged their selflessness and humility - then in the second case? He exhibited his own.
You are noble. In the best and most approving sense of the word.
There are people who haven't faced a fraction of your difficulty, who are yet to perform the level of introspection you've mustered to understand how they behave - and to derive from it a mission or a wish.
"but it is possible to be happy and depressed, the thoughts are not mutually exclusive."

It's the effluvia released, every time Titan ejects another black, slab-like monolith.
The Pope was never and never could or will be the "Vicar" of Christ on Earth.
St. Francis might have been... or San Juan De La Cruz...
Fear of death. Mortal anxiety.
We are not talking about reality of non-material consciousness or ontology.
This is a discussion of the organising principle in broad human endeavour. The Pharaoh was never son of Horus. Democracy and Liberty were never the aim of establishing an international body to manage world order.
As Yuval Harari points out, "What is so special about us that allows for such cooperation? Unflatteringly, it is our talent for deluding ourselves. If you examine any large-scale human cooperation (or co-option), you will always find some imaginary story at its base. As long as many people believe in the same stories about gods, nations, money or human rights (memes and antitropes) - they follow the same laws and rules (of conduct)."
