Someone asked on the last post, if it was supposed to make sense. Well, not someone, Fred One, to be specific.
This is not a sense-making site. I shoulda put that right up front. Maybe I have to make some changes to the header thingie. Call it a boring, not-sense-making blog. Maybe some nonsense here, but no sense sense.
No common sense either. My common sense is so poor that I run a risk every time I use it. And really not any wit here. This is a serious place. 'Cause you can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty, or smart, or to have sense. So, I'm just tellin' ya. Don't be lookin' for sense here.
I sort of think that a preoccupation with sense and such shows an arrested intellectual development. Now, you're probably thinking, "That doesn't make any sense at all."
EXACTLY. See? Like that. No sense. Don't even think about it.
'Course there are other kinds of sense. There's moral sense, for example. There are folks who claim a strong moral sense, are actually heartless and cruel. Vindictive even. Like to tell others what to think and do. Some people. I don't want that kind of sense. I think I can distinguish between morality and moralizing though.
I guess a person can have a sense of values too. I don't know if there's any of that stuff on this site or not. Not on purpose anyway. I'm just breezing along, minding my business. And if I had a sense of pride, I wouldn't be publishing this crummy post.
Now a sense of humor would be nice on a blog. I sometimes try that, with minimal success. Naturally everyone claims to have a sense of humor. Even people who confess to murder won't own up to not having a sense of humor. Yet we all know folks who we would describe as lacking a sense of humor. Usually that means we played a joke on them and they didn't laugh. Like that.
William James, a Philosopher and Psychologist, said that, "Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds. A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing."
MMmmmm….sorry Willie J., that doesn't make sense to me. I guess you have to have more sense than I have to understand this stuff.
Sorry that this got so long, but I don't have time to make it shorter.
