That I'd love to hear.


Why would I tell?

Because philosophers, theologians and scientists have been trying to answer this question for centuries. So why should we believe that you've been able to answer it in no time at all?


cuz im awusome

Next you'll be saying you've found Eudaimonia, or that you're in the Kingdom of Ends.

Today I learned just how conspicuous one can feel buying a dozen roses, and then finding that the backpack you brought is actually to small for them to fit in entirely, so it's acting more like a back-vase, and then having to ride one's bicycle home 6 miles on a busy road. Huh.

Your post reminds me of this :lol:

'The Politics Student

The politics student is flighty: on Mondays, they can be found waxing lyrical about the need for gender-neutral toilets, lower taxes and boycotting non-Fairtrade products in the library café. Come Saturday, all they really want is a frap from Starbucks. Mmmm the sweet taste of frozen Capitalism. Although they argue a lot in seminars, lefties and Tories tend to sleep with each other a lot.'

Horrifying fact: the Glasgow underworld has replaced the 'Glasgow smile' with a practice called 'bagging', where they stab you in the anus so that you need a colostomy (the 'bag').
