    With the parenthese, human signification reaches a state of completion (no more incessant sliding of the signified under the signifier once you got parenthese).

    You gotta watch them signifieds. Slippery buggers.

    When the signified is about to slip away, the parenthese scoops it up and returns it to the fold. That is why the parenthese has the shape it does.

    Is that some kind of social science inside joke? Like, 'we can pretend to be doing something worthwhile if we make it look like a schematic!'

    Here's a joke: your money or your life!

    Or, perhaps: your money (or your life)!

    i once built a deck chair, without the benefit of instructions, that turned out looking like this. It didn't survive long for some reason

    not party, but I do get wasted on weeknights, and stay sober and try to sleep early on the weekdays. being hungover at work is far better than being hungover at home with the kids wanting to do stuff with you and the wife giving you the evil eye....

    This kind of stuff pisses me off constantly, but it is unavoidable in nyc, where there is an event of some sort every night. My girlfriends works in a weird industry where their hours and days aren't the same and even if they were strolling in at 9am isn't uncommon. But her events and such that I get invited to are always like Monday nights starting at 10pm. :fu: I'm like, who the fuck are these people?
