  1. So in my evening news rovings I came across this:

    Model's nude photoshoot in front of Jerusalem's sacred Western Wall causes controversy

    but what I think should have really been singled out are here responses:

    Quote

    “I know my mailbox is about to fill up with threats and angriness again - to all the people typing down their furiosity right now, save your energy. I don’t even open them,”

    And yes I was the one who underlined the disgrace! 😣

  2. @Gord Barentsen I guess you've been updating the site or something, because all of a sudden when I click the emoticon button i see all these random emojis...?

    I will go on the record as saying I hate emojis...I find them immature and unbefitting for serious intellectual conversaion (even though I used the emoji version of a rubbershark for the Jaws conversation, but Jaws is anything but intellectual).  I see the normal emoticons (which are much more professional) but they are pushed to the bottom of the list.

    So my suggestion is: please get rid of the emojis...I find them childish.

    Just my two cents :thumbup:

  3. So (don't ask) I find myself watching Jaws as we speak.  I think  I saw oart of it a long, long time ago but it's essentially like a new movie for me.

    Now everyone calls this movie a classic...but am I the only one who sees this film as proof that a movie can absolutely suck and still be considered a "classic"??  Terrible acting, terrible editing, terrible plot...don't get me started.

    And yeah i know it was made in 1975, but it this really something we want to be considered one of the best theatrical productions of our species?

     

    not to mention that mechanical shark...with the rubber teeth! 🦈

    This is one of the best videos i've ever seen!

    i don't think anyone should underestimate the bonds that can be formed between humans and other animals...i've seen clips of lions and tigers playing with the humans who helped raise them after years of not seeing them. an amazing reminder that we are part of the natural world and can learn a lot from our animal friends.

    Yeah...it always makes me remember this picture I saw around the time Hurricane Katrina hit the USA - a frog sitting on top of a snake swimming frantically across a body of water.  It was really powerful: "hey snake!  (*#$# our differences - LET'S GET THE )*$#$ OUTTA HERE!"

  5. Hey Gord,

    Gone for a while, back now and whoa!  You've really taken the site in a new direction.  Just wanted to say I love the new look - it's actually better than anything I've seen here so far!

    offensiveness and offendability have emerged as our distinctive form of cultural literacy.

    what a brilliant statement! i think the problem is that we tend to binarize things so much that now we think we are faced with only the two possibilities of the Offendocrats on the one hand and the boors like Trump on the other.

    wasn't it Chomsky who said at some point that he who slings the mud first always wins?

  7. Ok so I am undoubtedly jumping back into the thick of this discussion whilst thinking I need a dictionary to keep up with you nerds ^_^ but I also seem to recall Jung sleeping with one (or several) of his patients, and that Freud used that against him or criticized him for it?  Or maybe I'm committing the movie fallacy by taking what I remember seeing in A Dangerous Method at face value..

     Symbols of Transformation of the Libido, that early breakup note to Freud,

    thanks @rhlangan - but could someone tell me exactly what happened with this freud-jung breakup?  I occasionally read of both sides insulting the other so it must have been a doozy, but don't havea real idea as to how it happened..
