  1. Duly noted. Since I'm a relatively-recently converted cat person, I also want to post some pics of my beloved (And RIP one year now) cat Seven.
  2. You are welcome sir. Anything I can do to help promote the arts and humanities in an age of terminal scientocracy...
  3. As far as the mobile phone display goes, it's a bit of a crap shoot depending on the size of the original image, portrait vs. landscape orientation etc. I know it's a very un-Google thing for me to say but the site works best on desktop.

    boldface text

    Hmm...weird. Have you tried toggling the Bold option for your text? And what browser are you using?
  5. There should be a Topic Logo button near the top of your new forums post screen. As @NotWithoutMyOntic said, try it out in the Sandbox and let me know if you don't see it.
  6. There are some great coincidences here....and some which don't seem like coincidences at all... Spurious Correlations WWW.TYLERVIGEN.COM Why do these things correlate? These 15 correlations will blow your mind. (Is this headline sensationalist enough for you to click on it yet?)
  7. I don't know which fares worse...this person's understanding of Hegel or his clumsy pro-Trump sentiments. 🤔 I had to respond (it's up there). For the record, Hegel did not use anything like "Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis" (which was Fichte not Hegel, as I recall); and to characterise his thinking as incapable of handling anything which wasn't divided into "polar opposites" reduces his thought to a caricature. I think maybe he slept through Philosophy 101...
  8. I just watched this again...still gives me goosebumps.
  9. From my old reading of Philosophy of History, Napoleon was seen as a world-historical figure and thus an integral part of the unfolding of absolute spirit. It was the closest thing I could think of related to ablation. 🤔
  10. Neil Peart's missing a tom and takes out his frustration in some great drum riffs while it's repaired.
  11. Some great pareidolics(?) This one is my favourite:
  12. In fact, my lovely wife bought me this oh-so-cool shirt...she doesn't even read Hegel but she gets it!
