  • I want a screwball nom dag-nabit!

    I'll just keep posting screwy stuff until I do. Since I don't have anything screwball-worthy of my own to say, here's more from Carl Jung:


    Somewhere deep in the
    background I always knew that I was two persons. One was the son
    of my parents, who went to school and was less intelligent, attentive,
    hard-working, decent, and clean than many other boys. The other
    was grown up-old, in fact-skeptical, mistrustful, remote from the
    world of men, but close to nature, the earth, the sun, the moon, the
    weather, a living creatures, and above all close to the night, to
    dreams, and to whatever "God" worked directly in him. I put "God"
    in quotation marks here. For nature seemed, like myself, to have
    been set aside by God as non-divine, although created by Him as
    an expression of Himself. Nothing could persuade me that "in the
    image of God" applied only to man. In fact it seemed to me that the
    high mountains, the rivers, lakes, trees, flowers, and animals far
    better exemplified the essence of God than men with their
    ridiculous clothes, their meanness, vanity, mendacity, and abhorrent
    egotism-all qualities with which I was only too familiar from myself,
    that is, from personality No. 1, the schoolboy of 1890. Besides his
    world there existed another realm, like a temple in which anyone
    who entered was transformed and suddenly overpowered by a
    vision of the whole cosmos, so that he could only marvel and
    admire, forgetful of himself. Here lived the "Other," who knew God
    as a hidden, personal, and at the same time suprapersonal secret.
    Here nothing separated man from God; indeed, it was as though
    the human mind looked down upon Creation simultaneously with
    God.


    I knew from experience that God was not offended
    by any blasphemy, that on the contrary He could even encourage it
    because He wished to evoke not only man's bright and positive
    side but also his darkness and ungodliness. . . .

    You could always post videos of yourself singing Cher songs.

    I'm always still in trouble again

      Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

          I was looking for a screwball myself but apparently JP doesn't do the monthly article anymore, it's just the thread.

            Ivo knows. He's just being an attention [lady of the night].

              Dress up like a cross between a brony and cher, and then sing a sermon about how wonderful Geislar is. That should do it.

                This reminds me of someone for some reason but I just can't quite put my finger on it.
