Is it just me, or has there been an explosion of threads lately involving sexually frustrated, relationship inexperienced men?

Well, I don't want to miss out on this trend. Better make a frustration thread

Even when we have lost hope in resolving the problems we have, we are still fundamentally part and parcel of the world. By virtue of this understanding, we can do anything realisable within the universe. [So don't give up ]

What do you think about me?

Its the games people play imported into the political arena and this looks like "cowboys and indians" or "cops and robbers" or at its most basic "good guys vs. bad guys", its the villainous "other" and the good "us" rather than a serious appraisal of the specific question in the style of Popper, while Popper's criticism of the "big idea" was specifically directed at communism, utopianism, ideologies like that, it could as easily be directed at the conservative anti-progressivism.
Which makes me think about the other thread about the political compass, you know there was a response "in a true free market there can be no monopolies" or something to that effect, I clicked that I strongly agreed with that, as I do, although I also believe that a "true free market" is a utopian idea, as utopian as William Morris' news from nowhere or anything like it.

I'm back to square one: I don't like anything about this.
Feel free to leave.

So anti-authoritarian, I question the legitimacy of my own questioning.

Response to a ridiculous request made of me:
Yes, mother, I am "really happy" about this. Upon further appraisal of your proposition, I have come to a decision: if Zach supplies me with enough Bailey's Irish Cream and strippers (the good kind, not the coke-addled ugly ones) to have a grand ol' time for an entire weekend, I shall grant this request. Until then, please give my condolences to the brother of my blood that he still seems to be unable to get his shit together.

I had a dream last night that my skin wasn't waterproof. I've been thinking about it all day."Everyone who believes in telekinesis, raise my hand."
