Intelligence, Mind and Sofas

Post by davidelkins » Tue Nov 24, 2015 2:11 am

I believe in the grandeur of intelligence. I don't believe in Intelligence Thievery. I believe in potential. I don't believe in Dumbification Schemes. I believe the mysteries of the mind are unfathomable. I cannot loose my mind under the sofa.

Since you name what you don't believe in...why not list the opposing interests to what you do believe in? Or is there nothing but grandeur, potential, and unfathomable mysteries?

Why does my blog make you shudder Gord? By the way, I am now 36 years old.

You mean lose, right?

By the way, was this supposed to mean anything?

Ha, ha.....loose would fit (sic) for most sofas today. Not enough room to get your head underneath. Maybe too poetic for the serious points being raised?

From discomfort caused by trepidation and annoyance.

Not according to the bio on Gravatar. Who should I believe, you or Gravatar?




...omigod, I'm registered on Gravatar?? What the hell is Gravatar and how did I get registered there?!?! And it's got my correct information! And it uses one of my old standard passwords from 2014!

I assumed he meant "loose", as in to loose the hounds. I loose my mind into many different areas each day. If I were to wonder what might be under my sofa, I might loose my mind there.

I meant 'lose', as in to suffer a loss. I accidentally wrote 'loose', as in to unleash. DE

Well, damn. I mistook your error for cleverness. I feel a loss of respect for your quality of mind, now, somehow. Maybe it's under the sofa.
