And yes, Noam Chomsky went into this thinking it would be serious. That's what makes it so hilarious.

Actually, what he said is that he's not naturally a good public speaker (I disagree) but that even if he were, he would suppress any rhetorical skill he had because he wouldn't want to coerce people into agreeing with him. So basically, he makes absolutely no effort to try to be entertaining when he speaks.

Personally, I find his way of speaking irresistible, but I'm just weird I guess.

lol no I kind of get it, slow and monotone has a certain gravitas; I guess you think it sounds professorial?

Yeah I guess. It just makes him seem genuine and intellectually mature. That's not to say I can't appreciate the opposite side of the spectrum e.g., Ann Coulter.

lol nooo the opposite side of the spectrum is Winston Churchill, Obama circa 2007, and pretty much all TED talks speakers ...

I don't think the over-excited vomit emanating from Coulter's mouth can be reasonably considered oratory of any kind....

Oh, I didn't mean Chomsky and Coulter are opposites in the sense that one is a good orator and one is a bad orator, I meant they approach the task of speaking very differently; one sounds like a pot head and the other sounds like a crack addict.

Chomsky isn't even a cunning linguist
Skep: Have you ever wanted to troll a blind dating thing and pretend to be one of those 'I'm not religious, I'm spiritual' people?

Me: I mean... I identify as a Spinozian pantheist... is it really trolling?

Skep: That's not the same thing. You're just autistic. These people are retarded.

Are you suggesting that colorless green ideas do NOT sleep furiously??
