I laughed at your description of that FB 'mawk' as being a sledgehammer, crikey yes.

Reminds me of why I gave up reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged after about 200 pages, it was like 'Ok, ok, I've got the message loud and clear, I agree with it, I don't need another 700 (?) pages of this!'

p.s. Ah, so, you're a Scientologist then? :P

Woah I thought you had to be chewing on peyote or summink to do deep-$hit like that :)

p.s. The founder of the movement is listed as an ex-Scientology teacher, so ironically I wasn't completely off-target ;)

No need for the peyote, the psychedelia usually starts midway through the second day if you're doing it right :-D

...and yes I know Charles Berner was a former Scientologist...nobody's perfect! But that's why I pointed it out. The two paths have diverged greatly in the decades since ;-)

Been to a couple of open-mic nights and they're scary .... One thought telling us of his gay encounters was comedy. Another was making one-liners about cancer. Fortunately there're a number of foreigners (again) who make it worthwhile
