  • Bart Janssen, in reply to mark taslov,

    And sorry Bart

    No worries Mark. I was AFK being a yuppie (more correctly a dink since I can no longer be called young) yesterday after voting, so it all went over my head :).

    I see the “asshole” you were referring to was not the “asshole” … called me. Perhaps too many “assholes” being thrown around, perhaps too many assholes

    we all need reminders of the
    Eternal Riddle of the Sphincter
    er, Sphinx:

    "A thing there is whose voice is one;
    Whose feet are four and two and three.
    So mutable a thing is none
    That moves in earth or sky or sea.
    When on most feet this thing doth go,
    Its strength is weakest and its pace most slow."

    we’re only human…

    An incredible blunder on my part and I’ve no idea how I’m going to rectify this

    I did wonder where the hell you were going with this ;-)

    What an asshole*.

    Sorry I just had to call you that in order to complete the circle :)



    * and just in case I fail on tone - no I don't mean it at all.

  • andin, in reply to mark taslov,

    reading back again just now I see Andin. you didn’t call me an asshole either,

    Umm No but glad you got it sorted :-)
    A lot of people's self interest at work in this election. To be expected I guess.
    Its the great motivator for all of us. As to whether that's good or bad depends on your pov I s'ppose
    Apropos of our previous conversation, a Sapolsky vid gets very interesting about 4 mins in. And I'm not sayin' anyone's a baboon

    Thanks Andin, I wikied him at the time but as is patently obvious I wasn't too much in the mood for reading yesterday so I'll have a watch of this after work.

  • Greg Dawson, in reply to andin,

    Thanks for posting this - I hadn't found video of the guy, just read the paper that came out a wee while ago. Was one of my "reassure myself that not all people are naturally awful" things during the campaign :)

    Really interesting study/findings.
