Shoot, I allus figgered the Clavister had sufficient DARKNESS in his soul
to be able to understand that you can't just tell somebody who's CLINICALLY
DEPRESSED to CHEER UP. How old do you have to be to understand that
NENSLO's soul is NOT the light and geometrical precision of a Mondrian,
but instead the darkness and writhing of a George Groscz, that Pete
Hipwell's life is not a Monty Python sketch, but BLACK AND TERRIBLE as
Waiting for Godot.
Myself, I'm an old ROGUE SubGenius. I don't get into this HATE versus LOVE
stuff. I notice MereHumes the same way an old rogue elephant might get
annoyed at the vast herd of wildebeest crapping all over the Serengeti--but
HATE? What would be the point? You couldn't kill enough of them to matter,
and anyway their corpses would be EVEN WORSE than the crap.
No, HATE is to be reserved for GREAT COSMIC FORCES. And relatives.
Actually EX-relatives. It turns out that my ex-son-in-law is even worse in
the Makes-My-Teeth-Grind Sweepstakes than my ex-wife. Which I would not
have beleived possible.
That's what's so laughable about this rash of 14 and 15 year-old WUSSES
going postal and blowing out their little playmate's brains. GIMME A BREAK!
Experienced an overload of angst AT THEIR AGE? WITHOUT AN EX-WIFE? HAW! As
Tarla points out, at their age "you have yet to meet half the assholes
you're gonna meet in your life." HALF? Again HAW! More like three-fourths
or seven-eighths. AND they still have a HUGE RATION of mistakes, screw-ups,
blunders and terrible injuries to old friends to live to regret.
