THE MORE HUMANS THE MORE IDIOTS TOO
With human overpopulation continuing unabated, even acceleratng at times
and places, this planet may be enlightened by a few more geniuses, but at
the same time it will be burdened by an ever-increasing number of idiots
that have no idea that Earth is or will be overpopulated, and that have
even less of an idea of what overpopulation causes to this planet,
especially in combination with overconsumption (including the wrong
Pandemics, such as the corona pandemic, caused by an enormously increased mobility and population density, and by the way people treat animals, is
only one example.
The mobility is both a result of a larger population and of an increase
in the mobility, if not excessive mobility, of individuals.
The density of population follows immediately from the increase of
population in a limited area.
The role of animals must be looked at from the point of view of a wrong
human consumption pattern followed by too many people.
"ME USING YOUR RIGHT?"
If you are shown disrespect, or even treated disrespectfully, for having
no or too few children, just answer: "You want me to make use of
your right to overpopulate this planet (and contribute to the
destruction of nonhuman nature, and endanger the future of human
civilization in its wake)?"

LUCKILY, THE DIVINE IS
SAFELY FAR AWAY
If Jesus of Nazareth called at the front door of a Christian family
—in cognito, that is— the majority of Christianists would
think, "how gay" or "what a faggot he looks", because of his long hair,
for instance, and they would be sure after they heard that the man at
their door was thirty-three years old, still unmarried and without
The majority of the remaining minority would not be exclusively

"Please, don't mention human overpopulation and excessive mobility, as
the two main causes of pandemics. Talk to you at the next one."
IN THE LAND OF ALLITERATION
In the land of alliteration there are only men of merit, no women of merit.
The others who may similarly be praised are worthy women, not worthy men.

SURPRISE IN, SURPRISE OUT
Alfred Tennyson wrote a New Year poem entitled "Ring Out, Wild Bells".
It counts no fewer than fifteen Ring out's and ten Ring
in's, which culminate in Ring in the Christ that is to be.
It was written in the year 1850 of the Christianist Era, the same year in
which Tennyson was appointed Poet Laureate of Great Britain and Ireland
by Alexandrina Victoria Hanover, the head of state of that country and at
the very same time of the Anglican Church as well.
Hanover is also known as 'Queen Victoria'.

A CONFUSED DADDY
— "Daddy is growing old, he's getting more confused every day.
This morning he said that we live in the Western Hemisphere, and that
Canada is in the Eastern Hemisphere."
— "I can't believe it! Did he say that? He's losing every
Eurocentric notion of reality, isn't he?"
HETERO- AND HOMOSEXUALITY
DO NOT EXIST
If we confine ourselves to sexually mature human beings and, to keep it
simple, equate love with loving to have or having sex,
then there are men who love men and/or women, women who love men and/or
women, and anyone with a body between that of a 100% man and of a 100%
woman that loves and/or is loved.
Hence, if sexually attracted at all, men who are (also) attracted to women
are gynophile, and so are women.
Women who are (also) attracted to men are androphile, and so are men.
Hetero-, bi- and homosexuality are pseudopredicates (presented as
properties but actually relations), just like cordate- and renateness:
they are theoretical constructs.
It is precisely because there are men who love men and women who love women
that homosexuality does not exist; precisely because there are men who love
women and women who love men that heterosexuality does not exist.
The androphile and gynophile relations of love certainly do.
To put it bluntly: homosexuality does not exist because there are men who
love men and women who love women.
The former are androphile, the latter gynophile (exclusively or as well).
74.ESW-75th Early Northwest
i'm not anglophile,
That's much pleasanter, because by being gynophile as well, you've got
the whole of humanity.
What do you get by just being anglophile?"

SIX GREGORIAN MONTHS
Dry January, fake February, remorseful March, eight in April,
more in May, and drunk in June.
A NATURAL NEW YEAR
The natural New Year (one of two or four options) starts at the Northern
Winter Solstice, not some entirely arbitrary ten days later, as zanily
believed in and zealously celebrated by Gregorian Christianists and their

A culture whose movement is petering out, and that is not capable of

I am not trying to kill the culture of ten-fingered fetishists — the
old generation will just have to pass away eventually.

VYING FOR ABRAHAMIC EXCLUSIONISM
In those countries in the world where Christianity and Islam compete or
fight for political domination, they also tend to vie with each other
to show off their Abrahamic exclusionism, especially towards human beings
that are not exclusively cis-heterosexual.

NOTTY'S REGULAR KNOWLEDGE
AND IRREGULAR SNOW
— "Notty, it's clear you didn't do your homework, yesterday.
To know is an irregular verb: it is know, knew,
— "I'm very sorry, but yesterday it was snowing the whole day, and
it was just not the usual, regular snow.
It actually snew so heavily and continuously i had to keep on clearing
the driveway and the sidewalk until it was time to go to bed.
If it hadn't snown so much, i would've had enough time to do my
homework, and then i would've knowed it."

FROM SODOM AND GOMORRAH
TO AUSCHWITZ AND TREBLINKA
When the hate preacher
was banned from entering the Netherlands and all other Schengen countries
part of this person's reply was:
"I was going to the Netherlands for the benefit of the people of the
I was going there to preach the gospel, and [now] they're
[they=the Dutch authorities, presumably] going to reject a
Bible-believing preacher for coming and preaching the word of God ...
If you [you=the Dutch authorities, presumably] continue down
this godless path and become another Sodom and Gomorrah, then you're gonna
end up the way Sodom and Gomorrah ended up."
And if the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah by a natural disaster refuses
to come back by itself, this promoter of Christianist terrorism will go all
out to have human beings themselves make Auschwitz-Birkenau and Treblinka
Only the ones to be exterminated may not all be the same.

WOOFS WITHOUT A WARP
I don't hate dogs, but i just don't like the woofs of people who never
think of what they need as a base.
It's all woofs without a warp.
73.MSE-74th Late Northwest
NOTHING MAD OR MAGICAL
Whether it concerns stroking a dog on the head, stroking a cat on the head,
sucking a man, or tonguing a woman: all are places which the dog, the cat,
the man and the woman in question cannot reach at all, or only with great
difficulty — with their paws in the case of dogs and cats, with their
mouths in the case of men and women.
So long as the dog, cat, man or woman is open to it, the other feels in the
mood, and all are prudent, there is nothing mad or magical about these very
social physical acts.
A gang of thugs were having ferocious arguments and making a lot of noise
somewhere in a row of houseboats.
When later the police arrived at the row boat in question, the gang had
already disappeared in a rowboat.

You do not have to travel all the way to Hyperyinyang to find a planet
with three instead of two sexes.
Just visit the most popular clothes stores on Earth and you will find
clothes for men, for women and for walking advertizing pillars.
But i could be mistaken: the advertizing pillars look suspiciously like

larger than that!"
THOU SHALT NOT LIE A LIE
I always thought there was a Judeo-Christianist Commandment
Thou shalt not lie (or words to that effect) and that it was by
itself a sensible and moral statement despite its arbitrary position in a
haphazard denary hodgepodge of ten commandments.
However, the presentation of the (eighth or ninth) commandment in
this way is a fabrication, for the correct formulation of the
Commandment is something like Thou shalt not bear false
witness against thy neighbor.
The phrase Thou shalt not lie leaves out in giving evidence,
and the phrase Thou shalt not lie in giving evidence leaves out
against thy neighbor.
This is not the same as Do not tell lies, even not the same
as Do not tell lies about others; not the same as Do not accuse
anyone falsely, even not the same as You shall not give false
Instead, Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor is
a very specific commandment for the members of a tribe that
probably too often witnessed against one of their own lot by giving false
The concern shown in this order is not universal truth by any manner of
means; it is a particular type of falsehood (perjury) which damages the
reputation and undermines the unity and strength of one particular
73.LSW-74th Early Northeast
RETROFITTING IN BIOLOGY
To claim that animals copulate in order to perpetuate the 'lives' of their
species or individual genes is a fucking shameless piece of unscientific
retrofitting in biology; a piece of after-the-fact thinking in which the
fact will indeed be the maintenance of the species or genes but in which
the thinking (if any) before or during the act of copulation was about
something entirely different, and a lot less lofty.
(The animals that use a large number of children in something irresponsible
like demographic warfare copulate in order to perpetuate the life of a
religious or other ideology which knows no natural equilibrium, something
biologists should not be fond of either.
A similar example is women thinking of England during sexual intercourse.)

Letters, stories and books of long-term interest are not just readable:
they are rereadable.
WHY NOT manimpotence.ru?
Part of the (until now) never-ending struggle against Russian-Ukrainian or
Ukrainian-Russian Internet abuse is the phenomenon of
A large part of it you recognize immediately by its
ru extension: http://company-such.ru/ and
But why do several websites with a ru extension promoted in this
way suddenly have to be interrupted by https://man followed by
impotence followed by .com/?
Why not be honest and use the extension ru in this case too:
(I know — everyone knows — that
traditionally traditional Russian men
cherish not only their good but also their bad traditions, and
that alcoholism is one of them.
However, Shakespeare told us already that loads of alcohol may provoke the
desire but will take away the performance.)
Alas, you just can't rely on such Internet abusers.
When it comes to building contemporary trust in respectful coexistence,
they're all impotent.

DROWNING SOCCER PLAYERS
Parents or guardians who find it more important that their children can
play soccer or 'football' than that they can swim have a screw loose,
unless, perhaps, they live in the middle of the desert.
Those who are on the ball will teach kids to swim first.
73.MSE-73rd Late Southeast
A VATICAN AGAINST DIVORCE
The Vatican, with Vatican-Catholic followers in its wake, is vehemently
opposed to divorce, epecially the divorce between Church and State,
judging from its ubiquitous and eternal support of state religionism.
It is opposed to divorce, provided that the State does not interfere in
Church matters or matters the Church claims to be Church matters but which
are public matters in general.
(When it concerns the appointments of priests, and more so the payment of
income and property taxes, it is actually in favor of total separation.)
Think thrice before you call something "alliteration":
think twice does not alliterate, think thrice does.
So, people should rather think thrice.

These are examples of excessive sexual irrelevantism in the German
language: jede*_jeder hat ..., Künstler*innen und
Politiker*innen haben ..., Teamer_innen.
(The * does not refer to any footnote and the spellings used may be
* or *_, if not just _.)
The more traditional sexual irrelevantisms are found in: jede und jeder
ist willkommen (unless sex happens to be relevant in the context
concerned) and junge Künstlerinnen und Künstler.
Supposedly, the * must underline that the reference is both to
males and females females
and males, as in Lesben, Schwule, Bisexuelle, Trans*- und
Inter*-Menschen, but this suggests that bisexuals could only be women
Well, this irrelevantist and ugly use of what should be a natural language
does leave some room for Innenarchitekt*inneninnenarbeit.
May these interior decorators and all other German speakers use their
talents to make their language less irrelevant and more pleasant to listen
to and look at, regardless of sex or gender!

A COUNTRY VIEW, NOT A WORLDVIEW
A so-called 'world(-)view' which is Israel-,
Arabia-, America- or any-particular-country-centered is a normative
Only a 'country view' may be one-particular-country-centered or, in
traditional terms, patriotic.
If what is supposed to be a worldview manifests tribalism or nationalism,
it is not a (religion or nonreligious) worldview but an exclusivistic
Isreali, Arabian, American or any such country view.

When applied to my own situation, the 'Third

I am not sure about Armani's formulation here.
I think the rule ought to read: "Long-term success requires

God of the Abraham Religions and One Nation, Neutral and

imaginary descendants of any Abraham included.

CREATIVITY VERSUS CREATIONISM
What i witness these days is a lack of creativity and innovation, even
experimentation, in denominationalism.
Too many people fancy a return to the withered roots of the Abrahamic
The creativity of those people consists of nothing else and nothing more
than the return to the unconditional belief in creationism.
WHAT ABOUT CHERRY-PICKING?
"Does He hate or doesn't He hate cherry picking?" That's the question!
(The crucial question is whether the God of the Bible, which combines the
attributes of Adolf Hitler and Albert Schweitzer under one cover, hates
or loves cherry-picking.)

PIOUS AND OF IRREPROACHABLE CONDUCT
This year there were 1,636 Iranians who registered as presidential
All of them had to believe in Allah and in the official religion of the
Islamic Republic of Iran.
After a screening by the Guardian Council almost all men were eliminated.
(137 women tried too, but a woman will not be deemed eligible in any
case, however pious she may be.)
Among the six left over was Ebrahim Raisi, one of the most immoral
criminals of Iranian history.
In 1988, under the reign of Sayyid Khomeini, first Supreme Fuehrer of Iran,
this exemplary Muslim (one of four judges then) had thousands of prisoners
of the political opposition slaughtered.

A 'MORE INCLUSIVE' RELIGION
Those who nowadays still strive for a Christianity or an Islam which is
more liberal, tolerant or inclusive (read "less

work by horse and wanted much faster horses at a time that the car had
already been invented.

Total-Bible literalists are, by direct implication, the most
supernaturalistic and, by indirect
implication, the most exclusivistic of Christianists.
Yet, literally these so-called 'literalists' do not exist, for they will
always cherry-pick the passages from the Bible they find attractive and
enforceable, while keeping silent about the passages which
even in the eyes of not entirely brainwashed members of their own flock
are silly or pathological, if not blatantly immoral.
