Flimsy Sanity

In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule. - Friedrich Nietzsche

Bible Code



Etiquette books say it is improper to talk of politics and religion in conversation. That is because both rely on slavish loyalty rather than thinking and when someone is faithful the last thing they want is something upsetting their alpha state. Besides, what do etiquette books know - Emily Post had 15 pages on how to act at a picnic.

    I got a copy of an Emily Post book for my 16th Birthday, and my mom sent me a lot of articles when I was planning my wedding.

    NO NO NO. Throwing chicken bones is the only true path to knowledge!

    "Everything predicts everything" - it's the answer to all the world's problems, to say nothing of rendering useless most of the laws of physics.

    Don't throw chicken bones, Mama. The dogs eat them and get bone splinters in their guts.

    Who's Emily Post? (or is that an American pop culture reference?)

    Speaking of "Code", what do you think of this article about Bush using Bible references and some odd comparisons that are speaking to his base but that the general public doesn't understand - called dog whistle politics because only people tuned in to it hear it. It would explain why lots of what he says doesn't make sense.
