This post was for irony, putting media in the Non-Fiction section of WritersBeat.

It may be the camera angle but that finger certainly appears much longer than mine.

Not that I am perturbed about that, mind you.

Mine has always been able to get the job done and trading it for another at this stage of my personal history would simply be frivolous.

Apparently there is Fake News and real news, but unfortunately for myself, only Donald Trump can spot the difference. I just presumed all news was Fake News (especially when Rupert Murdoch took over the world).

Well, to 'get off' I need a woman (or at least the thought of one&#128521

But he is a pretty man.

The old lies are termed History (the stylized way of stating His story,eh?)

The current pack of viewpoints are referred to as News.

A fact, a truth - well that is an incontrovertible reality.

An example that comes to mind is firing a bullet at a paper target.
See the hole?
That is a bullet hole. That is a fact. That is truth you can see. Stick your finger into the opening.
Truth you can touch,

What?
You note that one, perhaps, cannot see a hole?
Cannot touch a hole?


Ah, truth - how elusive you are.

Hey, anymore bullets in this thing?

Yer going down a slippery slope there.

Yep, you have the truth of it. The truth of it is, the closer a person gets to the truth the fuzzier it gets. Or is that a paradox? If the barber shaves all the men who don't shave their self, who shaves the barber?

[QUOTE=PickleBottom

[/QUOTE]


When my hair gets cut it is I does the cuttin'.
Same with the shavin'.

Perhaps this has some bearing on why the basis of traditional truth has always seemed simply untouchable to my tender fingertips.



Regarding a paradox - when younger I had such a situation.
Then, as time went on, the analyst lost his bearings and the other physician was overcome with age.


Life got much simpler after I was clear of their help.

Yep, every person who states a truth on why we can't define truth, either is not being truthful or has found a truth, proving their statement incorrect.

I stated this at a table full of philosophers and I could see in their faces they were busting to state something, but they kept quiet, their faces red with perspiration.

It is a hard thing to do, shutting a philosopher up. I should know as I belong to a Philosopher's Guild, yep, we have many intellekchual conversations with exactly zero practical application. It is the most indulgent intellectual pursuit.

Then there are philosophers who only study previous philosophers... that's more indulgent than indulgence, it is like sticking a chocolate bar in a deep fryer and then adding whipped cream, cherries, ice-cream and a gold plated mclaren.

Excited to read an opinion, it was just an empty joke. Sounds about congruent to the lie/s

Darn you.

After perusing the forum, I was recording a lyric with a prominent and stretched out "because."

I keep thinking "Beesauce..."
