    I didn't even know dogfish came in purple.

    Due to the weight of their color, they can exist in deeper waters and still scour the bottom.

    Ha, saw this as a stand alone comment and thought oohh, that would be a cool idea for a kitchen... in this house (that i'm imaging for the sole purpose for these new coloured things)...with the pool and the children playing in it with yellow floats..haha

    But hummm, yes interesting fish colours.

    It could be argued that your English is better than many of the native English posters.

    I read what people write and think... wtf is this? Perhaps I am not intellectual enough to follow what is being said? Or maybe I have no desire to follow it?

    I guess, if you want a real question to answer... do you actually read and comprehend what others are saying?
    Im the best fluffer of all time, I try to combine the most immense amount of incomparable and incomprehensible gibberish into a series of nice easy sentences.

    Either that or I go all out and slam down my paragraphs with the force and skill of the 50 year old, 300 pound, tetris world champion.....or is that dominos? No a domino player has to walk places.

    In either case the goal is to communicate in the most uncommunicable way possible, then complain that no one understood my point.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    I skim long posts. I often can't be bothered to read them in depth unless my skimming reveals that they might be interesting or insightful to me. Sometimes, they are; sometimes, they aren't, and I move on.

    Then again, I'm a somewhat impatient person. Others aren't.

    It's understandable, though. Many thoughts are difficult to articulate clearly and concisely, with colloquial language, or even with technically correct grammar and sentence structure. Some are best expressed through huge freakin' walls of text--ideas that need a lot of detail to truly grasp; and some are best expressed through somewhat impenetrable metaphors--ideas that are better explained through connections to related concepts.

    Direct language is kind of limited, but I usually try to bother to be clear in communication. I tend to assume that the onus is on me to get my ideas across in an understandable way.
