Maybe all of this could have been avoided if Holden hadn't meant to refer to anal sex pejoratively.

Here's my mnemonic:

If it's somewhere worth going, and it's east of Broadway, it's on Pike. If it's west of Broadway, probably on Pine.

Of course there are exceptions, but hey.

"Whine, I don't like Microsoft, and I resent (thinking) that I have to use it, because I haven't investigated my other options."

This is precisely the kind of customer Microsoft wants. You don't have to be happy, you just have to buy it, and the more you respond with "Waah" rather than "meh", the more you're playing into this.

As many have said, if you don't like Word, don't fucking buy it. Get OpenOffice if you want to have a highly-graphical word-processing suite, that is free and not totally fucked, and all corporate, man. I am very content with their version of Excel (i.e. Calc), and use it frequently.

For producing other documents, I would prefer to write LaTeX in a barebones editor (Notepad++ is a great, stripped down, slightly graphical text-editor, and vi and emacs are still around also, believe it or not).

And Riya - did you check the headers on that email from "your grandfather"? Just because it looks like he sent it to you does not mean he actually did. Don't blame google if you are afraid of something because you don't understand it.

TL;DR: Either buy it (and shut up), or don't.

@6: When wool people realize that puns aren't funny?

@6 When they have an earthquake on Saturn, is it really called a saturnquake?

I think that would be a good starting point for a meaningful analysis of the semantic meanings of language prior-to and following their articulation, and how language, prose and abstract comparison replace the role of science and literal understanding in our quest to understand the universe and its shimmering vibrations.

Wat?

Interesting viewpoint... I have never heard Foucault interpreted like this.

However, I have long thought that in "Discipline and Punish", the prisoner is really a cat, and the observer is really Schrodinger. And that in "The Archaelogy of Knowledge", the whole thing about statements being events in time is really just a discourse about the central role of the universe's movement as it relates to time travel, in that, if you travel only in time, earth isn't going to be where you left it, so you better have a time-machine that can travel in space, also.

It's really kind of like everything is the same thing. What do you think?

@0: isn't it, though? Hah hah.

I like when she points her fingers at her mouth. It makes me want to have some sushi for lunch.
