But of course!

There is a quote in Assassins Creed "Nothing is true, everything is permitted" which is ultimately contradictory.
"George Bush says he speaks to god every day, and christians love him for it. If George Bush said he spoke to god through his hair dryer, they would think he was mad. I fail to see how the addition of a hair dryer makes it any more absurd."

This thread died a very swift death. Danggit.


I'm formulating a new thread for R&S on focus. Basically about being in the zone.
