hindsight = 20/20

having a three hour subway debate with a couple of college kids crazy enough to take the 7 train all the way out to the end of the line and back again is probably not the best use of time.

hm, a little bit of everything
systems of truth, how they work into government, how that affects us as a speices over the course of the last few millenia - religion, how that plays into the popular understanding of truth. then we had sorta a rough synopsis of thocracies from the start to the end, and did a big comparison to communism. the girl i started this whole convo with was a phil/theol major, so she was packing some good guns. her two friends were a polisci major and a econ major. at two points in this big long sprawl of a conversation, we drew in other people just randomly riding the train at the crack of dawn.

but that's awesome! sounds like a great use of time, even if it did put you out of your sleep pattern.

That sounds like my idea of Hell. I used to think that working at 1020 on a jam-packed Valentine's Day was the closest preview I would get on this earth to the aftermath of my sinful life, but that train ride sounds even more accurate. Perhaps some combination of the two.

Having just last week celebrated the one-year anniversary of my college graduation, I can now be openly derisive of college students and their bullshit intellectual posturing. Actually, I have done this for a while...but now it feels less like hypocrisy.
