I never got the impression that snyprrr is a looney-tune poster. His posts make him seem more like he is always with a cup of espresso in one hand while typing. ;)

 :D  Well, I challenge you to read back some of Snypp's post in recent years.  You may arrive at a different conclusion.   ;D

There have been days (or late nights) where you can see a string of 20 + consecutive posts in as many topics, and sometimes you think he's the only one on the forum, having a conversation with himself.   :laugh:

Nevertheless, I like the dude, especially because he is a 'chamber music nut' like me.  :)

Ice Hockey.. Canada - Finland in World Championship games in Minsk. Obviously they're not that big an attraction in an Olympic year, with many of the NHL stars absent.

Poor common sense! it was a fascist eastward of Iron Curtain, and a communist westward of it.  ;D

Aligning oneself with the left, as with the right, is only one of the numberless ways open to man of being an imbecile: both are forms of moral hemiplegia. --- Jose Ortega y Gasset

I am neither a rightist, nor a leftist --- I am a smart man. --- Henry de Montherlant


Quote
Today, after a long process and almost against his status as a Catholic writer, I'm convinced he is the greatest essayist I have ever read and with Jorge Luis Borges and Franz Kafka, one my favorite writers from the XX Century.

Why against? Is a Catholic barred ipso facto from knowing and expressing the truth? I won't deny this right even to a Lutheran like Kierkegaard, or to an atheist like Schopenhauer --- so much less to a Catholic like Chesterton...  ;D

Kafka --- yes, he is the one and only prophet of the brave new world we are living live in.  ;D ;D ;D

(quoted from memory)

"Such a law, I am not aware of!", said Josef.

"You see, my friend, he isn't even aware of the existing  laws, yet he pretends to be innocent!", said the police inspector to his colleague.


I ask you, my GMG fellows --- are you aware of all the laws enforceable in your country?  ;D ;D ;D ;D

No, I didn't watch it.  For whatever the reason, I usually don't follow the World Championships.   :-[

Yeah, I gather they're not of much interest in North America. In any case, Finland won, dropping Canada from the semifinals   :laugh:
It's certainly not what I expected would happen, as Finland only barely made it into the top 8, losing to Latvia, Russia & USA, barely winning the Kazakhstan match 3-4, and winning Switzerland in the penalty shots.  ::)
It would be cool to win silver, making a straight flush together with the Olympic bronze & Jr. gold.  8)

I guess this isn't too OT yet, since quite a few hockey players miss at least some teeth..

Cheers, here's hoping.. (I wouldn't be disappointed if they won gold, either, though  8)   not that I really care enough to could have been disappointed even if they hadn't made it to the top 8 )

Semifinals next, against Czechs, who beat the US. They ought to be able to win Czechs (who won Norway 1-0, won France 5-4 in OT lost to both Denmark & Sweden 4-3 in penalty shots, and lost to Canada 4-3). The other semifinal pair is Sweden & Russia. I sure hope Putin's team will end up without a medal..

This off-topic has gone a bit too far, so my apologies to the community.  :)

It's simple: I think secular affairs should be always discussed in non-religious terms.

A discussion about beliefs is always a failed discussion because, generally speaking, when you are in front of a true belief usually just one road is possible: respect. 

I mean only it's possible to debate about ideas, not about beliefs and all of religious "ideas" are truly beliefs, not authentic ideas.

As Ortega y Gasset said: while we have (own) ideas; we are (upon) our beliefs.

Me, too. But it won't be the same without Teemu. When will they produce the next Teemu?

I like him too. Anyone who describes the Luto cello concerto as "farty" and listens to it in his car (see Luto thread) has got to be a cool person!
