I realize that no one who knows about the Hitchhiker's Guide would take entries like this seriously but the tone [bleep]s me off…
No, we won't tell you which Entry that was. Or the handle of the Twitter user. But yeah, that [bleep]ed us off, too. Aside from objecting to our tone, the user didn't think we should discuss a theory he considered, probably rightly, to be 'fringe', because 'conspiracy-minded thinking is as contagious as a [bleep]ing virus.' (Twitter's language is sometimes indecorous, unlike ours. And not just because of the filther.) Now, we object to the notion that we can't discuss things lest somebody out there is silly enough to believe foolish things. If we thought that, we'd have to stop inquiring into the nature of Life, the Universe, and Everything, because there is ample evidence on the internet that foolishness is a fairly common commodity on this planet. It is our humble belief that the antidote to foolishness is more inquiry, not less.
Anyway, just because people have PhDs doesn't mean somebody died and left them in charge of Truth.
What we're all about, friends, is the Process: noticing, asking, inspecting, learning, following through. Not being satisfied with the Trend of the Week, the Daily Soundbite, or the Opinion du jour. This is our business. Let's go about it right now. You will soon find that expressions like ' fledge, exhibition spaces, value enjoyment,' and 'blood in the gutter' have entered your vocabulary.
Send more Stuff, people. This issue is short on cats, dogs, and tree roots. We are actively soliciting more signs and Create contributions. These things go out on Twitter, you know. We'll show them 'tone'. Have fun out there. And have a great week!
Quote of the Week: Thoughts should be free as Fire or Wind;
Blood in the gutter.
So far away.
