Sorry for being absent

Stuff has been happening, and I have been Blogor absentibus, for which I apologise. I will soon be doing an introduction to argument series which will begin when I can take material I used in teaching and format it.

I am now an unemployed philosopher. It seems this is not a terribly uncommon state of being. So I have been trying to catch up on a few things and find a way to avoid sleeping in gutters. I can’t go back to robbing elderly ladies, since they can now run faster than I can. Please bear with me.


  1. Well, maybe you can take candy from babies and resell it to the old ladies as nutritional supplements.

    As long as it will be a real argument series and not just a contradiction series. đŸ™‚

      But if I’m going to argue, I have to take a contrary position…

        No you don’t

    What you are saying is that the old ladies no longer wish to be captured.

  4. You just lay down in the middle of the road and refuse to move until the car drivers pay a toll.

  5. Glad to hear that life has been happening for you! Glad you made some time for us!

    You can always go back to stonemasonry.

    Sorry to hear it. And to think that once we were kings. Oh wait, that never did materialize. Maybe take up lens grinding, I hear that worked out for one guy. Though the dust may have killed him.

    While you were gone, we got rid of most of all your stuff and replaced it with new stuff that looks exactly like the old stuff. The challenge is to figure out what is original and what is new.

    • Were you the same people that moved all the world one foot to the left? I have been unable to find my way around since.

    Didn’t that all happen last Thursday?

    You all sound like zombies, but *philosophical* ones.

      • That’s a great Heinlein story for teaching the philosophy of time travel. Never heard of that song though.

    When you’re lyin’ the gutter, just remember that you haven’t really been drunk till you’ve woken up in mexico without clothes or a passport, and clutching a bottle of tequila. Been there, done that.

    You know, since so many people seem to prefer other people to do their thinking for them, you’d think there’d be greater employment opportunities for “lovely little thinkers” like you.

    • I guess they don’t think they need to pay for that…
