I was talking to a woman who comes through the hospital to visit those sick to "brighten" their days. Here's the conversation:

Lady: "What are you interested in?"

Me: "Philosophy, religion, political science and psychology."

Lady: "I have a son who is getting his Ph.D at University of Washington in political science! What ideology do you follow?"

Me: "I would be best described as an anarcho-capitalist."

Lady: "An anarchist? Hmm, how would that work though? Would you just rely on man to follow their morals and not do wrong?"

Me: "I'm actually a moral nihilist."

Lady: "You don't believe in morals? What about your God, though?!"

Me: "I'm an atheist."

Lady: "Well, what about the meaning of life? Where do you get your purpose from?"

Me: "Um, I'm an existential nihilist. And I find that meaning and value is just self-delusion for comfort, anyways."

Lady: "So what do you believe in?!"

Me: "Um... beer?"

*Lady gets up and leaves*

I'm still laughing. :P

That is pretty priceless!
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

hahahaha you should have shouted: "Guess you're a goodbye nihilist"
Me -Phil left the site in my charge. I have a recorded phone conversation to prove it.
kohai -If you're the owner, then do something useful like ip block him and get us away from juggle and on a dofferent host!
Me -haha you apparently don't know my history
Kohai - Maybe not, but that doesn't matter! You shoukd still listen to your community and quit being a tyrrant!
Me - i was being completely sarcastic
Kohai - then u misrepresented yourself by impersonating the owner—a violation of the tos

That, madam, is f***ing remarkable.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Aren't you a epistemological nihilist or metaphysical nihilist (both?) so you don't believe the beer exists either.

1. I am not an epistemological nihilist. Those guys make me laugh. :P

2. Being a metaphysical nihilist does not stop me from believing in beer. It's my life force as a German. ;)

I don't know about Ann, but I'm a hedonist. Philosophical and epistemological matters become irrelevant as soon as I can decide whether or not they are beneficial to my long term maximization of pleasure and minimization of pain.

I'm probably not best described as a hedonist but I do recognize that all actions are ultimately rooted in my self-interest and therefore, I should do what maximizes my contentment/happiness if I can. Beer definitely helps. :P
