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

  2. @Philosophyprof: Just like an academic!

    @Keith: Would so! Would so! Would so!

    @Living in Mom’s Basement: Doing anything later?

  3. @Living in Mom’s Basement: Sorry, just yelling at Keith. I’ll be by at 8pm. @Philosophyprof — you in?

  4. @Angryguy48: Sure, all my ex-wives are busy tonight anyway. I’ll bring a bottle of Stonebridge Merlot — it’s a great wine.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.”

  7. 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).

  8. DON’T GIVE ME THAT, YOU SNOTTY-FACED HEAP OF PARROT DROPPINGS!
    SHUT YOUR FESTERING GOB, YOU TIT! YOUR TYPE MAKES ME PUKE!
    YOU VACUOUS STUFFY-NOSED MALODOROUS PERVERT!!!

  9. Max,

    Good Yomtov

    Not for about 2 1/2 weeks.

    How’s Broadway treating you? Ready to get a leather belt?

  10. @ Ed Whitney – This isn’t an argument, it’s just a series of contradictions.

  11. 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!

  12. 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.
