Nihilism

I watched The Big Lebowski this weekend.  Again.  Do you know, that every time I watch that show, I come away with a new and improved deep thot?  At this particular viewing, I discovered that Nihilism is a complete fraud -- no one can be a Nihilist.  Here's why:  Nihilists believe in "nothing" and lack care for everything.  However, since they believe that there is nothing, that is believing in something, and caring enough to support the cause of nothing, therefore they believe in something because they believe in nothing.

Deep, right?  I love that show.

If they truly believed in nothing, they would have starved to death by now, having not cared enough about their own life to maintain it.

How's that for a deep thought?

Rad - maybe I shouldn't get you started?

Blackdog - dude? No, dude it's The Dude.

Tom - you've helped me see that maybe it's time I memorize the movie. The Dude says some smart things, eh?

I also watched The Big Lebowski this weekend. Just thought you should know.

Here's another thing... does Tara Reid have any idea how freaking lucky she was to land herself a role with not only Jeff Bridges, but a movie of this magnitude? No she doesn't. I know this about her. Grin.

So Junkie, did you also take your littles skiing, dine on Market Street chowder, run 12 miles in 12 degrees, test tax software, sleep 8 blissful hours, and play the piano at church?

Figured that since you watched Lebowski, you prolly did the same other stuff too.

And since you watched Lebowski, does that mean you were born in June too? Everyone I know who watched it this weekend was born in June (me and Spouse so far, if you too are born in June, then this proves my hypothesis.)

I'm in a wacky mood. Obviously.
