Is so. Is so.
Is not. Is not.

@Keith: Your argument is tenable neither on Hegelian grounds nor in light of Jaspers’ metaphysics.

None of this would happen if we legalized drugs.

@Living in Mom’s Basement: I wasn’t talking to you.
April 1, 2011 at 2:48 am
@Philosophyprof: Sorry. I’m so lonely.
@Keith: Would so! Would so!
April 1, 2011 at 2:49 am
@Philosophyprof: Just like an academic!
@Keith: Would so! Would so! Would so!
@Living in Mom’s Basement: Doing anything later?
April 1, 2011 at 2:50 am
@Angryguy48: Don’t you mean “Would not! Would not! Would not!”?
April 1, 2011 at 2:51 am
@Keith. Just like an academic! But, yes, thanks, that’s what I meant.
April 1, 2011 at 2:52 am
@Angryguy48: Hello?! I’m still here.
@Living in Mom’s Basement: Sorry, just yelling at Keith. I’ll be by at 8pm. Philosophyprof — you in?

@Angryguy48: Sure, all my ex-wives are busy tonight anyway. I’ll bring a bottle of Stonebridge Merlot — it’s a great wine.
April 1, 2011 at 2:54 am
And I’ll bring Citizen Kane on DVD, it’s a great movie.
@Philosophyprof: Is not!
@Angryguy48: Is not!

@All: Have a great April 1.

Its not the real April 1 as the calender has been changed by the original tri-lateral commission after the Pope made up the joke tradition in order to grant dispensations.
April 1, 2011 at 5:22 am
The pope was a Nazi and also Hitler’s mom. So any actions on his part were null and void.
To put my two cents in, I am on the side of “Is not”, and “Would so.”
April 1, 2011 at 6:11 am
… Wait, sorry, my mistake. Is so.
April 1, 2011 at 6:41 am
You are absolutely right. However, I must alert you to the fact that I made the point first – and, I believe, more persuasively – in my Usenet alt.politics post, “Is it so? Yes. Yes, it is.” (March 12, 1984).

Well, I’ll just reserve further judgement until tonight, when President Truman addresses the nation from the Oval Office.

You didn’t complain when your guy did it. Effing hypocrite.
April 1, 2011 at 12:01 pm
My guy was duly elected in 2000 but was never allowed to assume office, no thanks to SCOTUS.

@Ed – This is argumentation. Abuse is on the next blog.

@Dave – That ended yesterday. It’s duck season!
April 1, 2011 at 12:49 pm
@ Foster–if you want me to go on arguing, you have to pay for another five minutes.
April 1, 2011 at 3:51 pm
Is so x 10 to the 23 power
April 1, 2011 at 4:16 pm
Is this about me again Professor?
April 1, 2011 at 6:12 pm
Not for about 2 1/2 weeks.
How’s Broadway treating you? Ready to get a leather belt?
April 2, 2011 at 7:51 am
@ Ed Whitney – This isn’t an argument, it’s just a series of contradictions.
April 2, 2011 at 8:25 am
Look, if I argue with you, I must take up a contrary position.

Jim Henley’s somewhat similar “Blog” of 7 April 2006 stood at 1,104 comments when closed automatically after 21 days. (I contributed the appropriately pointless comment 138.) A challenge to all RBCers!

Fortunately, my elastic composition renders me immune to your jejeune persiflage, whereas your mucilaginous habitus causes your selfsame raillery to redound upon you with exponentially increasing force.

I badly needed the laugh.

I wouldn’t behave like this if TNC was on the other end of the tube.
