Nihilists hate culture.
Why do you so often paint with the broadest possible brush? I'm a nihilist, as you know, and I don't think I hate culture. Maybe you could clarify your meaning?

He paints with the broadest brush possible because he thinks broadly but shallowly.  Its just easier to post fast that way.

Monkeys can be respected for what they are.  As can bats and rats and alley cats, sure as you're born.

I have a right to despise or appreciate.  So sue me, Susan.  I know what "rhetoric" means.  Do you know what "literal" means?

If Mikey hates everything, he is a nihilist.  Are you Mikey?  Do you need to "specialize" everything?  Yes, I do "generalize" everything.  This is how I burlesque extreme positions.  Your comment is a perfect example of "not a true Scotsman".  You know, since it has been discussed not long ago here, there is more than one kind of nihilist.



Can you think like a toddler?  You can if you try.  Now finish your cereal and get ready for play school ;-)

Yes, I do post fast.  Everlyn Woods fast.  When I go into detail, I usually get cricket sounds in response.  So my approach is an efficient use of my effort.
