Robert Armin explains history to a student:
quote:
I remember how pleased I was when I came across a student who had never heard of Thatcher. I explained her to him in a gently neutral way: "Now you've read The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe? You remember the White Witch who ruled for years so that it was always winter and never Christmas? Well Thatcher was rather like that."

IngoB, in the sin/forgiveness/golf Purg thread, gives this analogy of the Personhood aspect of the Incarnation, which is accessible and illuminative:

quote:
Perhaps an analogy would help. Take a dog. You can imagine "being a dog", barking, running around, sniffing, etc. Now assume that a lot of technological breakthroughs occur, and we can actually fully interface a newborn puppy with your brain, wirelessly and continuously. The puppy will grow essentially as normal, but whatever you may wish to call that which shapes its "dogness" into "this particular dog" will not form in the dog but rather in you. This does not turn you as human into a dog, though you will experience dogness. But you can still fully function as a human. This does not turn the dog into a human either, it still behaves like a dog: it barks, it does not speak, etc. Nevertheless, in some sense that dog is you: if the brain interface would be switched off, that particular dog would cease to be (and likely that dog would literally die, not being able to establish a "dog persona" instantly).

The dog - if it could think and speak - could reasonably claim to be you, because even though it is a dog doing dog things, it also is dog according to what you want. And if someone starts to kick this particular dog to death, then in a sense he has killed you: you as a dog. Something of you will die, your dogness. Finally, this dog will likely have your favor. For example, if you as dog are hungry then you are hungry as dog. Hence likely you as human will give you as dog food. To other dogs - if they could think and speak - this may well appear as a kind of magic: somehow you as dog can command a human overlord to do as you please. Yet from your perspective all that is happening is that you as a human and you as a dog are both you and hence act as one.

The ever-exquisite turn of phrase by Sine, in Hell to discuss a discontinued china pattern.

quote:
One – well me at least – hopes the matching crystal pattern was ‘Nada’. Then the table could be set with Nil and Nada, which would have a rather desolate ‘Waiting for Godot’ feel to it.
to which Ariel responded
quote:
Yes, and then eventually it would all start to look like Miss Havisham's wedding feast, with the hosts sitting round glumly, festooned with cobwebs, muttering, "Why don't they come?"

Meanwhile in Hell, ken explains why Joseph Chamberlain can justifiably be called a "a dipstick of humungous proportions":

quote:
Originally posted by ken:
[...] This would be Joseph Chamberlain, father of the much nicer Neville Chamberlain and much more sensitive Austen Chamberlain? (And great-granduncle of Harriet Harman)?

The Joseph Chamberlain whose narrow nationalism and rapacious imperialism led him to betray his liberal principles and sell out to the Tory Party?

The Joseph Chamberlain whose resignation from the Cabinet over Gladstone's Home Rule Bill split the LIberal Party, and sustained the union of Britain and Ireland for at least thirty years after almost all Irish and half the British voters made it clear that they did not want it, so making the Irish rebellion and civil war almost inevitable?

The Joseph Chamberlain who lead the charge away from Free Trade and towards protectionism and Imperial Preference that was one of the subsidiary causes of both the First and Second world wars and perhaps the major cause of the economic depression between them?

The Joseph Chamberlain whose "Tariff Reform League" turned to paranoia and anti-semitism and was one of the founding institutions of the sad shambles of British Fascism?
The Joseph Chamberlain who was involved in planning the infamous Jameson Raid (an English terrorist attack from what was then Rhodesia against South Africa that was one of the causes of the Boer War) and then betrayed Jameson and his men, lying to Parliament, and then was found out when his conspiratorial telegrams were made public?

The Joseph Chamberlain who promoted Lord Lugard's policy of "indirect rule" in Africa, setting up an artificial structure of "native chiefs" in places such as central Kenya or Igboland that had never had them before, disenfranchising the growing black middle class of Sierra Leone, the Lagos Colony and the Cape Colony, keeping millions of Africans out of the government of their own countries for the next fifty years, artificially boosting the rule of a small aristocratic Muslim military elite over what is now northern Nigeria, and setting the stage for the ethnic and political turmoil of modern Nigeria?

The Joseph Chamberlain who desperately tried to ally Britain with Germany during the run-up to the First World War?

The Joseph Chamberlain who pushed through the Aliens Act, the first explicitly racist and explicitly anti-semitic immigration law for over a generation of Victorian liberalism?

The Joseph Chamberlain who was in many ways the political forbear ancestor of Enoch Powell (one of his greatest fans and author of a biography of him)?

The Joseph Chamberlain whose policies were heartily taken up buy AK Chesterton (cousin of the much more famous and much more intelligent and much nicer GK) who founded the League of Empire Loyalists out of the wreckage of post-war fascism, which was basically Chamberlain's imperialist racism, minus Chamberlain's economic radicalism, and with the addition of a hefty dose of irrational anti-semitism (Chamberlain hadn't been so much anti-Semitic as anti-everyone-not-English), and in turn went on to found the National Front and spawn the BNP?

The Joseph Chamberlain who's Unionism, Imperialism, and opposition to Free Trade split the Liberal party and made it unelectable for over a century (maybe for ever, they still haven't recovered) - with the exception of those elections in which Chamberlain also split the Tory Party over Imperial Preference and handed the election back to the Liberals for one last hurrah?

The Joseph Chamberlain who never joined a political party he didn't destroy?

I'm sorry, but when it comes to foreign policy, someone who was personally (if indirectly) responsible for the Boer War, the racist government of Southern Rhodesia, the Great War, the partition of Ireland, the strange death of Liberal England, the Great Depression, the Second World War, apartheid, the Rhodesia/Zimbabwe War, the Biafra War, the BNP, and Harriet BLOODY Harman, can in all honesty be called "'a dipstick of humungous proportions".

Pointing out the correct spelling of "stupidest"? [Razz]


I don't think that word means what you think it means.
The word "stupidest" refers, of course, to the most stupid thing within a given grouping.
The word "stupidist" refers, on the other hand, to a professional who fashions an entire career out of stupid.

Did you never watch John Wayne's movie, The Shootist?
Do you not know that a podiatist is a professional who fashions a career out of becoming close to smelly, mouldering feet?

The question in the OP was, what have you done, then immediately regretted, that instantly qualified you for a career as a stupidist?
But I don't think that word means what you think it means.
You prolly think I jist got drunk and made a stoopid spelling errar.

Spike asked on the 'what if' thread:
What if God had sent a daughter?

To which Mousethief replied:
All her disciples would have left her the first time she got PMS.

Besides, jokes about PMS are so old they have whiskers on them. Quaint, like women drivers or traveling salesman jokes.

And now for something completely different:

I have whiskers. Does that make me quaint? I've always wanted to be quaint.

I know this is a tangent, but does anyone know why people are currently arguing that putting women on submarines is going to work out fine because it works in Norway and Canada? Because I thought that everyone knew that part of the problem is that their cultures are so very different from American culture - and even more so from the culture from which the military draws most of its recruits.

Purg is that way --->

On the Angry at God? Thread, LambChopped says what is probably going to be the way I get into Heaven (God willing).

How to decide which books get included in the Bible - a choice:
quote:
Originally posted by Nigel M in the Authority for New Testament thread in Keryg:
There seem to be two uses of the word 'canon' in the whole debate: one associated more with the academic history of religions where 'canon' is the final decision of a authoritative group of notables who shake hands on the deal, pass a list to the publisher and say, "There you go my man, now be a good chap and slap a couple of dust covers on that", while perhaps 'canon' understood more within the faith community is similar to the situation where one notable waddles round the library of a another notable he is visiting at several removes and notes, "I say old chap, I see you have the same set of books that I have. Great minds think alike, what?"

Canon as a process, rather than an output. Or something like that.
