Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
LH, you writhe and flail against the simplicity of a great truth, one which deserves more consideration and respect: reality exists.

While I know you, among many similarly water-logged souls, would prefer a brand of existence in which all reality was merely a matter of instantaneous whimsical consideration, I am sorry to say this is not the case. Reality exists, and is firmly bonded and rooted in the spiritual plane as well as the material one, a mesh of intransigent, intractable agreements that make up a space-time continuum in which we swim as fishes unaware of water.

Now I appreciate that here in the sacred Halls of Mom, we are all at liberty to spout alternative versions of reality in whatever lyric or blasphemous manner we choose in the spirit of True BS, and to raise the standard of such art as high as we may do, and while I celebrate that larky, inspirational undertaking, I think it is important to remember that True BS draws its power from marked contrast with the core tragedy of our shared existence, namely that reality exists.

Therefore, I urge you not to lash out with ad hominem assertions demeaning the character and vale of those who share these hallowed halls with you here at Mom's place. We few, we blessed few, who strive for the perfection of the still, small, but powerful voice of BS in the world, need to honor and cherish each other as companions in arms.

So when I prod you in recognition of the boundaries of reality, and chide your figments as not being of that sphere, you should understand as well that this does not mean I do not relish them as figments, as masterful embodiments of the BS art in form and function. Let the figments fly, good Hawk! And allow me to poke at them from time to time as a basso contralto counter-point in the symphony of our grand endeavour, without therefrom fleeing into the sour dark corners of dissonance and chaotic invective.
