This one's relatively accurate.

"According to Aristotle, the goal of poetic imitation is for the reader or viewer to be able to experience what we normally wouldn't want to experience in reality.  For example, in a tragedy, we are able to be entertained with the ideas of murder and dead bodies.  In reality, however, we normally wouldn't want to be around dead bodies and people dying."

LMAO.  If I hadn't stumbled on Brinker's thread I never would have understood this...instead, I busted out laughing loud enough at work to get strange stares...

I guess now is as good a time as any to reintroduce myself...I'm sure most of you don't remember me since it's been a few years, and I never really was a consistently active poster to begin with.

Back when Finny or Jonzr or whoever it was that started up MGS, I was a heavy lurker and light-duty poster on the ESPN Steeler board, and pretty much tagged along for the ride, as I too was tired of the drama on the ESPN boards.  Once established here, I ended up being rather frustrated at the lack of frequency of posting on here (heck, it was an upstart after all back then), and instead of sticking it out here or in the ESPN boards, I just took a hiatus altogether.

Fast forward to the beginning of last season...I start posting heavily again on the Steeler board (and the AFCN Draught Haus on the Bengals board, of all places).  Have been posting consistently since then, with MGS pretty much pushed aside in my mind until the escapade the last few days with the Feebs reincarnation/impersonation...which triggered my memory of this place and brought me back here.

I'm here to stay now and....

In Plato's work, Socrates is questioned about justice and its meaning.  Everyone is aggravated with his long reasonings.  This leads emotions to change and people dislike Socrates.  They start to think he is wise and is messing around with everyone.  Socrates becomes dangerous because he can brainwash people and no one wanted that.

Welcome back!

And now a short scene from Keanu Reeves' greatest performance:

I love this. 

When gas first went up (post Katrina) one of my sophomores asked, "If gas prices are so high, why don't we just fill our tanks when they're half empty, that way it only costs us half as much?"

On a final, one junior (who was taking the sophomore class for the second year in a row) wrote, "The Spanish American War was then the United States thought the Iraqi people would rise up and overthrow Castro."  (No shitting here....I can't make this stuff up!)

And today, "What major war did the U.S. fight between the Seneca Falls Convention in 1848 and the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920?"  Answer:  "The War of 1812."

OF COURSE you have to find someone with a UK poster on his wall!  And a damn Eastern Kentucky accent as well!   tickedoff

At least he seems to have most of his teeth... :rolleyes:

So he was off a few years.  Or a few wars.  At least he was in the war ballpark.   Shocked

True.  He did include the word "war" in his answer.  I bet you gave him half credit.
