Frankly, anyone who has spent enough time alone thinking, to the point that they’re considered wise, probably has a few screws loose in the attic.

    I don’t know if I’m considered wise but in my attic, I have lots of mismatched screws that don’t fit anything. The bats in my belfry have left long ago as there was little room for them left.

    What’s to explain? The front ring propels the glider off the ground, and the rear ring propels it forward. It’s a hovercraft.

    People call any wisdom they don’t agree with unhinged. Such as vaccinations, whether for or against. (This is not an invitation to debate vaccinations.)

    “Do you want to know why they call me Werjimond?”
    “Not rea–”
    “People kept asking, ‘Where’d your mind go?’, and it stuck.”
    “I really didn’t–”
    “Eventually they dropped the ‘go’ and said it with an accent.”
    “Is there someone else I can talk to?”

      All I can say is if you ever decided to write a short story, I’d eagerly read it. You have a way with words and your grammar is faultless making what one reads very understandable. The last is a very rare trait nowadays. I’m always impressed when I read your comments (but then, I’m easily impressed). 😀

    If you spend any serious time alone, slowly the effects of popular delusion and the madness of crowds leaves you, and you finally confront the absurdities that make up a depressingly large proportion of what’s in public thought today. And, if you’re lucky at all, you can make up your own explanations that work at least as well and, better yet, aren’t blatted at you every hour from every screen, every speaker, every flat surface, vertical or not, and every buffoon pretending to lead the masses.

    Greatly liberating. But the Great Unthunkables will think you’re screwy. Live with what you have to. I already made my choice.
