Notice anything missing?

Esotericism in general is the refuge of nincompoops.


They say the best is indistinguishable from reality.

"Every city in the world has the death penalty for stepping in front of a bus. How do we live with this draconian rule? By not violating it."

-Mencius Moldbug

With the addition of the above quote, this video, which I posted earlier, becomes approximately an order of magnitude funnier.

Quotes from a German friend

"The problem with [people from the Rottweil district] is that they are lazy... and greedy."

"The college-age girls in Berlin, they are so hungry!"

"We Germans do not go out of our way to speak to other Germans when we are outside of Germany. We just don't want to deal with them. It is our way."

"Ah, yes, the Berlin Wall. Except when I was young it was called the Anti-Fascist Protection Wall."

"No, I will not get my picture taken with you there. It seems like, what is that word? Ah, yes, blackmail."

"Why on earth didn't you learn Spanish?"

"I try to avoid doing business with [any company in the entire Rottweil district zip code]. They are always slow and lazy."

"Back home they keep asking me to bring back some American beer as a souvenir like Coors or something... I don't know why? Do they want to drink that stuff or something?"

"Oh! Cheapy guns!"

Hat tip to neutrino_cannon for compiling the list of quotes by our German friend, though I was there in person for all of them.

Soviet Humor

An old woman asks her granddaughter: "Granddaughter, please explain Communism to me. How will people live under it?" "They probably teach you all about it in school." "Of course they do, Granny. When Communism comes, the shops will be full — there'll be butter, and meat, and sausage . . . you'll be able to go and buy anything you want. . ." "Ah!" exclaimed the old woman joyously. "Just like under the Tsar!"

"You know, I'm a big loudmouth; it's what I'm known for. One thing this indictment has done though, is it's made me question somewhat the value of speech. Quite frankly, if you can spend 3-5 years in prison for talking, you might as well be out smashing windows, you might as well be out comitting acts of sabotage."

-Josh Harper, animal rights activist, SHAC 7

This is a tacit admission that Josh, and others like him, don't in fact have any principles or morals, but instead choose tactics solely based on the punishments they'll face.
