    Make sure to listen to the song. It's actually good. Kinda reminds me of The Smiths.
    Right, I mean, if we're going to die, let's at least go out with some music or a laugh as opposed to some screeching siren that instills fear and panic in everyone.

    That song reminded me of the Cowboy Junkies

    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    It depends on what you are referring to.

    Sometimes I think that, if it weren't for the internet and forums that have current-events sections and where people often just discuss real life things, I would basically be that person who knows everything about exoplanets, or quaggas, or obscure typology systems but can't tell you who the president is and regularly forgets what day it is.

    How about that exoplanet with quaggas on it?

    the term sapiosexual bugs me because it seems to be code for i will only date smart people, but 90% of the population thinks they're smart and really it shouldn't even be a catagory it should be yo I like people who are smart. it just seems stupid to me I mean some people i know are very smart but don't think they are so those people wouldn't even take a chance, never mind it comes across as arrogant to say you're a sapiosexual. so if you say you're sapiosexual i would not want to date you because you're probably arrogant as fuck. now if you say i prefer smart girls i still wouldn't have a chance but i would be less likely to think you were a jerk.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    What if Te and Ti were categorization, Ti is just more thorough.

    Te categorization: if you did XYZ you had a good childhood
    Ti: no, if you did XYZ it means you enjoy the show...blah, blah, blah...you could be beat and still watch the show anyway.

    Ti is much more refined categorization then Te is.
    Im out, its been fun

    It sounds like the Dunning-Kruger effect you're observing there.
