    I read about him in certain contexts, and what can I say that peaked my interest. Upon reading the first few pages of his The Concept of the Political, I literally wanted to burn the damn thing. Same thing upon glancing through his Political Theology as well.

    Falcarius has a question that has been bothering him for at least 14 years.

    Falcarius is sure you must have watched some cartoon like Looney Tunes and have seen the cartoon characters fall from a height and get immersed thirty foot in the ground before they pop up again.

    It made Falcarius think if gravity is the force that keeps planets in orbit around the sun, and governs the rest of the motion in the solar system, then how can it not be strong enough to embed himself in the ground if he decided to commit suicide by jumping from the top of a skyscraper?

    Narcissism, plain and simple.

    That does seem to be a load of crap which you have linked me to there. The reviews are full of praise, but in a way which leads me to suspect they are full of crap too. There is only so much time in life and Carl Schmitt is unlikely to get any more of it from me.

    If the forces of electromagnetism were not many times greater then perhaps it would.

    Hear hear. Schmitt is just an overly pedantic shithead.

    How easy is it to slice through a snake with a knife?

    To clarify, I mean sever the snake in two.

    A copperhead.

    If a snake were severed in two parts, and the head were biting someone when it was sliced, would the mouth remain attached after death?
