    "emotions are heightened over the most banal of things, like a shirt that's been ironed just right, the perfect soda pop, the new washer-dryer..."

    "Life isn't this easy and you certainly can't buy realizations. Yes, it's just an ad for chewing gum, but it's ludicrous...... At best it's funny. At worst it's pathetic." So look on and laugh, if you will, and enjoy the absurdity of the two-panel comic strip. The contemplative ones will realize that there's no "super" anything in real life that can be bought or sold, nothing that will lift you off your feet and make you glad you're alive that can be boxed up... in their commodification the minor joys of life become inverted, tiny claws of control piercing into your skin and clinging there as long as you consent to think and live like a consumer who happens to be person and not a person who just happens to consume."


    FMW: I thought we were in perfect agreement... though I did take it a step further as a moral indictment of rampant consumerism... perhaps my verbosity overwhelmed the central point.

    Realize us, Madman!

    Perhaps you would have better success with the menfolk if your personal ad didn't say, "Must be dead or open to dying." That's kind of a dealbreaker for lots of guys.

    Oh come on! Everyone LOOOOOVES a Byronic hero! You aren't a man unless you're willing to dig up your beloved! And I mean with a SHOVEL! Not with some cheatin' limp-wristed namby-pamby backhoe! Good old fashioned grave robbing will put the Love Train back on track in America! I'm tellin' ya!

    Your avatar makes me cringe each time I see it, I really have a phobia of stuff (especially people) touching my neck, it's makes me cringe and cover my neck, I just freak out. Gahh!

    I feel your pain. I'm like that about my ears. I freak out whenever they're touch kind of like this guy on the right.
