I tried it once, on a sunny afternoon in 1955, on a hillside in Nacozari, Sonora, with some other cheerful Spanish-speaking cherubs. One of the group had borrowed a pack of Mexican cigarettes, the kind with multiple ingredients to make the actual tobacco stretch further... I didn't like it and never tried it again. As a profound cheap-ass Introvert, I felt no need to attempt to be cool, or h

Ms. L. Lane, I submit for your review the Sci/Fi novella "The Marching Morons", by Frederich Kornbluth. It first appeared in a 1951 (yes, 1951) Galaxy Magazine. The premise is that Superior Beings recognize a duty to their inferiors (which possibly explains why The Cat labors so intensely here...) and that in the future the division between Superior and Inferior Beings will widen

The Cat, using your own words, can you define the good ol' Ubermensch? What are the qualities you've adopted into your skillset that have advanced you on your path to Ubermensch-hood? Do you think you'll ever make it to full Ubermensch-hood?

Maca, have you ever looked into the thoughts, and the data, that support the utility of simply relying on “good luck” v. “bad luck” as outlined by the Bell-Shaped Curve? In running through the Obstacle Course of Life, the stats are quite dependable regarding the gross outcome… We can put numbers to how many finish, and in what order; we just can’t make it work on a individual level

I hope that the scenario in “The Marching Morons”, a sci/fi novella, doesn’t come to pass. I think it is more likely than not, though. . .

I saw an interesting analogy on Reddit: During WWII there existed the concept of a "Blackout", during which no lights were to be seen from from 'outside' and wardens were out enforcing the Blackouts. Obviously in the US, it was not a big deal. But in England, there really were possible scenarios that scared the crap out of the citizenry. So were there any Rights under English la

Hmmm... When you reflect on it, "Don't withdraw your love because of unmet expectations", it sounds like it has something to do with 'soaking'...

The world could possibly be divided into two camps: A) Those who wish they knew what to do, or wished they could be certain that what they were doing was "enough", B) Those who believe they know what to do, and want to or are doing it. Here's a thing: if we ran a fence around the entire earth and put the "A"s on one side and the "B"s on the other side,

"If your mental process was the same as mine, you'd understand my point of view. But the reverse is probably a certainty: if my mental process was the same as yours, I'd not only understand your point of view but would already have adopted it." --Brendan Awkdoodle Le’el

I somehow reached an awareness that essentially the Bishop’s Court and a Court of Love had the same purpose, with the distinction being that the former only had jurisdiction over women and Aaronic Priesthood holders. The latter was a Stake level undertaking.

Simpleton that I am, I prefer books with happy endings. If I’m told that a dog dies in the book, nothing else you can tell me will ever get me to read it. I’m a fan of the silly notion that books aside, in real life it’s never too late to have a happy ending. Of course this isn’t true, but as some clever mormon opined, some truths aren’t useful, right? Zoner who??

Lately I have been ignoring myself on a daily basis. I've started small, like ten minutes a day during which I act as if I didn't exist. I'll slowly increase the time, but have taped notes to myself not to do it in the kitchen or bathroom ...
