Ever wonder if we're really just lab rats in some kind of twisted Psych 101 class project?
Is he trolling? Does he get a stiffy over seeing that little flame icon next to the antagonistic threads he starts? Some defenders say he just likes to make people think. But when he posts that same rationale himself, it tends to dilute the credibility of the remark.
Yup. "bizarro" is a pretty good bucket to put it in.
So you've been reading structuralist linguistics, KM. Congratulations. There is indeed a difference between language, in the sense of the capacity for language (langage, as de Saussure terms it), and a specific language (langue in de Saussure's terminology), and then again a third category, the particular way in which an individual deploys langue, which de Saussure terms parole, and is usually Englished as utterance. And, I assume, you've also been reading either Thomas Middleton or T. S. Eliot, both of whom make "A Game at Chess" a very different experience from "chess."

Sometimes I read these discussions. Sometimes I don't. I guess reading them makes me feel really lucky in a way:
When I was born and then when I was aware of life around me and able to make a decision, I made a really important one. I chose NOT to be gay. I was a real wuss and figured it would be the easier route to take.
I really have a lot of respect for those who chose the gay route. They've sometimes had some very difficult times in their lives, just with day to day living, . . .
