That book's almost inaccessible to me. I think it's kind of hard to read. I like his other works, I think they are pretty important to the history of philosophy. That is, if you can ignore some of the things he says in his aphorisms about religion (ex. Christianity is for ugly people). It's utterly childish.
It's a remote from the development labs at Panasonic. When it's not in use, it's limp, with a soft standby light. When it's touched for use, sensors within the remote cause it to become firm in your hand.
The joke was that I would say I am an INTP with a well developed F function, and ask if you believe it. You would (probably?) say no.
I would then say I another MBTI type with an F function and would ask if you would believe it, and you would say no.
Finally, I would say something that would be the punchline of the joke.
I really liked the old routines that were on the Show Get Smart (where the quote is from), and I thought it would be fun to do it here as well. In fact, I might start up something like that in the Fun thread.
Maxwell Smart: Because at this very moment, this warehouse is being surrounded by one hundred cops with Doberman pinschers. Would you believe it? A hundred cops with Doberman pinschers.
Nicholas Dimente: I find that hard to believe.
Maxwell Smart: Would you believe ten security guards and a bloodhound?
Nicholas Dimente: I don't think so.
Maxwell Smart: How about a Boy Scout with rabies?
What personality type am I you say?
Would you believe an INTP with a well developed F funciton?
Ignore the not as cultured comment. I sometimes forget that I work with a bunch of Marines who are overly focused on drinking and finding girls...their perception of the country is probably extremely different than how I'd interpret it. My bad. Bangkok looks interesting
Ha that's cool. It's definately cheaper, not as cultured, but the scenery should be nice. I'm going to assume you'd be going to a resort? I know quite a few Marines who've gone there and had a blast. I want to go there eventually, but to study Muay Thai more in depth.
I enjoy your posts very much also. Your words mean very much to me.
I think that I should be honest though.
I sometimes worry that my words give a wrong image of me... I'm very timid in offline world. I don't think I'm especially intelligent either. It's more that I have to fill up my internal world with interest and beauty because it's the only world I have.
Almost all other people my age find at least some kind of home in social world. I think I'm so introverted (more even than anybody I've met) that I just have more time to read and think things which maybe makes me seem more intelligent than I really am.
I don't know. the heads at this forum sent me an email that said you did. but maybe they were just talkin shit. this whole 'friend' thing is so odd to me. part of the reason I don't do facebook. If I talk to someone, I'm talking to them, right, why do they need added confirmation that I'm their friend?
Dude I've got to be honest with you. I HATE bananas. I can't eat it at all. There is this grass jelly drink that is really good, but I accidently bought the one with a hint of banana aroma in it. I puked right away! I can't even look at ur avatar right now
Things are well my friend - I've got a weekend where I actually have things planned for once. My brother thinks it's weird that one of those things involves going to the bookstore/library and reading Schopenhauer
