I have a public service announcement which affects *all* of DDO, so I highly advise you all to listen carefully. I'm only going to say this once.

Yesterday I mused that perhaps Zaradi was punking us all: I tossed out the idea that perhaps he was a Rawls in Nietzchian clothing. Obviously we don't need another socialist in office. Heaven knows we've had plenty of those money-grubbing, green-energy-pushing, Ivy-league-attending, latte-drinking, scum-lynching, pinko commi's, and are in dire need of a real 'Merican who will tell us what we need to hear when we need to hear it. Thus, I was skeptical of Matt's tactic at playing "Devil's Advocate." Why would he aim to reduce suffering when, in reality, it is suffering that breeds greatness in us all?

Then it hit me, and this was only after the 18th time that I watched his interview last night. Here is Matt's convoluted, yet genius, tactic:

(a) We expect him to run on a platform of increasing suffering, which he well knows. In fact, we not only expect it, but desire it, if only for the greatness it yields in the longer run, after which, according to the great John Maynard Keynes, we're all dead. In other words, we're all dirty, selfish pr1cks. However, Matt knows full well that the incontrovertible truth - and one that has eluded us all - that failure to meet expectations is the foremost method of inducing suffering. In other words, by telling us he intended to *reduce* suffering, he was actually *increasing* our collective suffering. Ya feel?

(b) He's been showing his face on hangouts for as long as I can recall, and it's no secret that he has the power to turn the skies green, to coat the oceans an effervescent shade of red, and to turn bread into wine with but a single glance. Let's just say that, if you once thought you were a straight male, you haven't seen Matt. (By the way, back the f1ck off.) But, alas, he has never shown us more than his face, which has always kept us wanting more. You see, this is akin to government welfare: you give someone a tiny sip, and poof, they yearn to eternally leech off the government nip. That's the position all of us, perhaps unbeknownst to us all, lie in: we want more, but we'll never get it.

(c) He does a video interview and takes care to ensure that his face is visible, but yet refused to cave to the unrelenting demands of our good friend, Annie (who is also in on this conspiracy), to aggressively and - and perhaps seductively, if we could fancy ourselves so fortunate - relieve himself of various articles of clothing. But, in the vein of Zaradi's master scheme, he once more refused, though only after the thought was well ingrained into our minds.

What is our conclusion from these recent events? It's simple, really: Zaradi is Frederich Nietzsche. He is the real deal, and we best look out - and rejoice - for a savior is born, and our suffering will be cold, hard, and possibly torturous, but in the long run, when we're all dead, we'll thank him for it.

For these reasons, to honor Matt, I have an announcement: I have begun the Get Matt to Take his Shirt Off Foundation (see my sig). You see, in spite of the fact that I fully acknowledge the wisdom in his depriving us of this bare necessity - and don't particularly revel in the subsequent blue balls his antics induce - I believe that compounded failures beget compounded failures, which will magnify our suffering, in much the same way that austerity amid a tight-money monetary regime, such as in the European periphery, is inducing so much suffering, and eventually greatness. The Greeks enjoy it so much that they're throwing bonfires in the streets!

Join me, and together we will celebrate Zaradi's terrible deeds.

Cheers,

Joey

The point is that we *haven't* seen Zaradi without a shirt, and for good reason. It has all been duly calculated.

But then he would deprive us of very valuable and necessary suffering. I'd vote nay, in spite of the fact that I would chomp at the bit at the opportunity to view what is obviously a site to behold.

It shall be a sad day when people create foundations for the sole purpose of having a candidate remove his shirt in a google hangout...

Indeed it is, and that you're able to say it implies that you haven't suffered enough.

It's okay - mafia tonight will change that :P

"Get Matt to Take his Shirt Off Foundation"

That's the name of the foundation, but that isn't the *real* objective. You need to read between the lines: the real objective, as I said, is to magnify suffering. If Matt suddenly caved and offered to rip his shirt off, we'd shield our eyes (though perhaps YYW wouldn't). That's how committed to suffering we are.

You haven't, anyway. He's been in my harem for a while now.
