Excuse me, sir, but this is "Most boring thread title," not "Most boring person." You seem to be confused.

Is time *really* not something that would subsist for itself or attach to things as an objective determination, and thus remain if one abstracted from all subjective conditions of the intuition of them?

Post here when sober!*

Things only the British find interesting.



*When I was a freshman undergrad, we had a forum (later shut down by the administration) which had, among many other popular threads,** "Post Here When Drunk." I remember posting on behalf of a member who had been given a suspension a few times . . .

**The word association game was the most popular, followed closely by what was supposed to be a discussion of Masters and Wilson . . . but quickly just became "people oversharing about their sex lives." The jokes about the student government treasurer just became even better after that one.

What were you doing on Friday at five to five?

At one time there would have been no need for this thread as we'd have all been watching Crackerjack. But as this thread would reveal, we are all now doing much more interesting things like:

Looking at the clock waiting for 5pm home time.
Watching soccer-mad son getting his kit muddy.
Feeding the guinea pig.
Using the hairdryer to debaptise ourselves.
Watching the newly decorated lounge paint dry.
Listening to the ads on Classic FM.
Wondering which type of wood was used for FD's plank.
Poking zappa with a stick to stop him snoring.

And many other fascinating activities to make all the other shipmates jealous. [Biased]

You can see you are Methodist, if it was Reformed there would be yet another thread

"Corrections to minutes of church meetings I have attended"

And of course the follow up of that of:

"Corrections to corrections of minutes of church meetings I have attended"

Sometimes our pedantry over everything being done in decent order is a pain (and yes I think I have been in meetings that have gone a stage further).
