Have you been drinking?

Almost only water, and Gator-aid.  My inner water is the Abzu.

I suspect not.  That seems to be his normal thought-style.  Note that I'm not saying it is generally normal, just normal for him.

Correct.  Normal, in this particular posting environment.  Not the same in other posting environments, or in person.  This is uniquely fight club.

You mentioned "fight club" outside of fight club.  Bad.  50 pushups for you. 

But you also missed my point.  I said it was normal for a particular poster (PR).  Not that it was normal for all the participants.  It is not.  10 laps around the track...

Civilization and its discontents, as it was in the beginning, so it is today ...



Of course people living in a civilization suffer from alienation, and are opposed to one or more elements of their civilization.
