  1. Re: thank you

    I agree, but if only the asshats of our town were as colorful as Donald Pleasance. I dream of moving to be near my old friends in Cambridge almost every day (there are no Park Slope/Williamsburg dreams for me)… but it seems I’m quite rooted here for now. And my armadillo skin helps when it comes to the he-who-talks-loudest-wins strategy out here — it’s only distressing when some of your closest comrades become those people.

        Fascinating, Cap’n. Re: Rexer.

        Re: -shit relativity — so, really, is horseshit deeper than bullshit? I couldn’t quite fathom it all. I must learn to use the right term in the right circumstance.

        1. the deeper pile of shit

          I think Gerald Cohen thinks that bullshit is more devious than horseshit. I think we better consult Fred about that. He has been practicing with both kinds.

        2. the less deceived

          Michael,

          There’s no difference between horseshit and bullshit. Both are
          self-expository terms used by the intellectually handicapped and
          implicitly impotent in reference to efforts by more intelligent and
          powerful individuals to baffle, misdirect and disinform them. Be-
          cause users of the terms are revealing their inferiority by resorting
          to profanity and cheap emotionalism any attempt to fool them is
          almost always successful.

          All the Best!

            Nice! Thank you for the clarification! I prefer the sound of “horseshit” myself because it’s less overused, and wish that “bullcrap” didn’t sound so weird.

                Incidentally, if you can put yourself in the shoes of the non-Francophone reader for a moment, could you tell me if I should invest in the new translation of Les Fleurs du Mal from Wesleyan? I have the old Richard Howard edition, battered with much affection, but I would prefer a better one.

                  The little I can see via the search function on Amazon, looks good for what it is. To pass along a recommendation by Alonzo Church, consult the original alongside this translation.
