Because I like sitting on my ivory tower.
It's when someone sets it ablaze and forces me off that I must belittle them.
Muahaha.

I get irritated with ignorant people, not the uninformed.

Sarcasm is just repeating what someone else said, and putting it into a context which makes that statement absurd.

Whether or not its just funny or also relevant to the discussion depends.

Decius: You are probably right that I am distorting the definition of sarcasm here. I hadn't gotten much sleep when I posted that and even I don't really agree with myself when I read the post now. I probably did mean to say irony, which doesn't make much sense given the topic of the thread, but I guess lack of sleep makes you wander off on all kinds of tangents

By man did you mean only man, as if you think women aren't good enough to understand you! How dare you.

Ah semantics

Oh and context, there's a concept that takes a healthy beating.

Question:

Why do most people refer to God as "Him", then?
Aye, that's the rub.

Thats just an ingrained reaction, it really has no purpose, to some they will say because god is male, but for me its like referring to humans as man or mankind.

We've been brainwashed, I tell you.
Brainwashed.
That's why it's ingrained reaction.

Oh, all this philosophy hurts my head..
There's a reason I keep Paddington Bear stories as part of my bookshelf collection!

Hey.
Pueblo, eh?
How can you stand it there!
I drove through it once going to Alamosa (yeah, I know, it was my dad's idea to go see the sand dunes)..I must say, I preferred Colorado Springs.

But nothing beats Boulder.
