Gottschalk sums up what I believe should be the ethos of the Ship:
quote:
we should perhaps never give up the task of trying to dialogue, discuss and learn, in spite of our convictions and beliefs, and that we all need a healthy dose of distance from ourselves, our beliefs, and everything else, all peppered with humour
That should be nailed to the masthead, at least of Purgatory.

lilbuddha on the Famous Last Posts thread referring to newly created mash-up topic 2017 Celebrity Death Piglet:

"Oh, what a cuuute little piggy!"

"What?! Nooo!"
Squeal! snort, snuffle, Squeal!
"But I'm too young to d..."

Needed a laugh, made me own. Not even sorry.

This thread popped to the top of the Circus with a six day old quote. Meaning someone posted a quote and then deleted the post. I shall be forever* curious as to what that quote was and why it was deleted. Why the second though, was it nasty, salacious, twisted? All three?


*Well, 15 minutes or so.

It was me. I said 'Brave man'. Then it occurred to me that I didn't know whether Doc Tor is a man or a woman and therefore, having kicked myself, I deleted it.

Wisdom and truth. The only trick is to know what kind parent and child pair they will grow into to know if there is room in there edgewise for you.

Eventually I realised that I was losing my husband's respect by watching mindless drivel whilst ironing his shirts. But I knew that I was incapable of watching anything intellectually challenging and ironing at the same time.

So I stopped ironing his shirts.

His mighty brain had genuinely not anticipated that as a solution to the problem. [Disappointed]
