Apparently "spooks" is problematic, as that may be used as an anti-black slur. I wonder when the last time "spook" was used in that manner. Doesn't seem very contemporary. Maybe All Quiet on the Western Front? Those Gerries didn't much like the French African troops.

Is striving really suffering though? I think Camus would say otherwise.

Struggle can often be pleasurable, at least when you are making progress.

But I prefer Doritos.

Even if he is a crazy wizard man, I enjoy a lot of Alan Moore's thoughts, if not his comics. He said some interesting stuff about the origination of the words "art" and "spelling" (emphasis on "spell") before, but I'll have to dig it up. Etymology is underrated by modern people I think.

Pretty cool debate, with your favorite and mine... Starts around 9:30



Stephen Fry is a dreamboat. Humor goes a long way.

the same arguments against socialism and communism, as to why failure is inherent, holds true for American capitalism.


They all require massive gov't intervention-socialism/communism/capitalism- to continue their existence.....

Hmm. Massive government intervention kinda sounds like the opposite of capitalism.
