make their own points about the issue.
Somehow, it is highly uncomfortable (tee,hee)
to not have the final word.
Anyway, it will be interesting to see how
long this conversation, such as it is, might
I have a funny story to share with you all...
Every now and then, I receive an invitation
from one website or another to take an IQ test.
I'm a real sucker for IQ tests, in the way some
people are sucker for 'romance tests'. It isn't
so much that I want to see what number represents
my IQ, though that is interesting, or that I want
to see what words represent my particular talent
areas, even though those phrases are fun to see,
it is more the whole dynamic of using certain,
specific questions to determine one's magnitude
and aptitude of 'brilliance'. Lol!
You ask a certain questions, you get certain
answers, and then you wind up with a certain
picture of 'what is happening'.
Most presuppositions are pretty pragmatic,
don't you think?
It's a way of getting a firm footing
so you can hold the camera still to get a
good shot of the scene you're framing.
Though I'm tempted, :), I won't go into
how getting a firm footing sure does enhance
one's feeling of comfort.
Bobby G., I don't really see how your
view of things is that different from
mine, or Bruce's, or Jody's... I have
noticed, however, that you seem to be
avoiding use of the word comfort. Is that
a trance word for you, or something?
