Show me where it is not like what I say, there.


You telling me to see a shrink?! That is rich!

You made the claim of the conspiracy, it is YOUR job to show me, not the other way around.

Cheers Pete. I see this is pointless. Not sure why I tried in the first place. I should have known better.

A man goes to see a psychiatrist. He says, “Doc, my brother’s crazy, he thinks he’s a chicken.” The doctor says, “Well, why don’t you turn him in?” and the guy says, “I would, but we need the eggs.”

We're all a little crazy. I myself have OCD, particularly manifest by my motivations for the REI power points discount, my deep love for Djibouti, and my tendency to end posts with platitudes. The Chief reveres Norman Clyde, and reads the Illiad in Greek every night. DMT has a hidden cache of bear poop. Bob Burd puts talcum powder in his shoes.

Yeah, Pete ends almost any post with an MLC tirade. But more often than not, the posts have some useful content. I used his trip reports long before I found SP.

If you eat a pomegranate, but insist on eating the husk along with the insides, you will get an unpalatable, bitter mess. But if you ignore the husk, you will have an enjoyable experience.

(My apologies to the Chief, DMT, and Bob Burd... all in fun.)

Does "all in fun" qualify as a platitude?

The pomegranate stuff was supposed to be the platitude. Parenthetical remarks are exempt.

Point taken. I agree. He is a great resource, but just with a loony husk like the bark on the Gen. Sherman tree!

Thanks for making me think Moapa. You and Bob Sihler are good at doing that.

I think I have some OCD as well. I have a habit of checking the alarm clock about 20 times before I go to bed. Does that mean anything?

As an aside, I'm thinking about changing my username to DTTFJanus.

Whatcha think?
