    The fact that you made reference to it indicate that you must have.

    Even Nietzsche didn't read Nietzsche.

    I remember one comment that another girl made during Girls State in high school quite distinctly... we were sitting in the state government workers cafeteria eating lunch and people watching out the window... as we were watching, a larger woman got up and started to dance for her friends... and by larger I mean larger. She was wearing a short skirt and a tighter, low cut shirt and I was wondering why on earth she would wear something so revealing. I looked over at the girl I was sitting with and she was smiling... she said "I love the fact that she's so comfortable in her own body... it makes ME feel good!"

    I've thought about that for about 10 years now, every time I see someone wearing something questionable according to conventional wisdom and feel like thinking something snarky, I stop and think- "that woman is COMFORTABLE in her skin... how many women can say that?"

    Something about other women, no matter what their shape, being comfortable in their skin is comforting- I guess the thought that it IS acceptable to be yourself physically no matter what you're built like.

    I took the liberty of excluding myself.

    There might be a good point included, but it is not true.

    No it's not true, of course, but I see his philosophy more as a suggestion, a hope, or a dream. Not something he delivered himself exactly. He seemed like another mess of a human being actually. While the philosophy was something he wanted to progress towards.

    Have you ever read 'Ecce homo'?

    Nope, but it sounds interesting (honestly). I think I will get around to it.

    You will at least revise your statements.

    You know Nietzsche doesnt chart in my considerations of interesting or insightful philosophers at all, he could be one of the sign posts of a certain trend but to be honest he's journalistic and only exciting to teenagers who think their rebellious phase is earth shatteringly original.

    When its all been done before.

    Do you want to know what Nietzsche thinks about you?
