"'Truth is strange," you know, "stranger than fiction' - besides being more to the point" - Edgar Allan Poe

There is no 'ultimate good'
because there is no ultimate
and there is no good

The stories your teachers taught you
were taught to them by some other people
and so on
until you realize that all of history
is simply the result of figments of a madman's imagination

I miss reading. Stupid VC++ manuals and GENIbus protocol specifications do not maketh the man.
I'm dying to read thick artsyfartsy books, walk into coffee shops and make meandering pseudointellectual conersation with people I couldn't really give a shit about.
But I can't. Not right now, don't know when either.

Strange. In the poem 'Humpty Dumpty', there's no mention of him being an egg. And yet, every visual that accompanies the rhyme shows a giant egg with a face, an irish(?) hat, striped socks and buckled shoes.
