Who wrote this sh#t, anyway?

Chances are, unless there is a link or reference to somewhere else, the perpetrator of this travesty is your's truly - David Bogner.

I live a life of relative leisure with my wife Zahava, our three wonderful children, and our two dogs.

I write here for me. It is a form of self-therapy I highly recommend to anyone who is tired of living vicariously via the thoughts and opinions of others.

Your thoughts matter to me. Only the most narcissistic, arrogant asshole wouldn't be interested in knowing how their thoughts and ideas resonate with others.

That said, I reserve the right to politely point out when someone is being intellectually dishonest, abusive or disruptive. This is a safe place for me to speak. I'd like to keep it a safe place for others to respond. That only works if the rules of decorum and logic are followed.

If you say something here that would get you punched in the nose in person... chances are you'll get the virtual version of a punch in the nose here.


Feel like sharing?


* treppenwitz

Literally, 'the wisdom of the stairs'. The striking reply that crosses one's mind belatedly when already leaving, on the stairs. People are often angry because they did not have the fitting answer directly during a conversation. The term is old, but it was made popular by W. Lewis Hertslet who published his book in 1882 entitled 'Treppenwitz der Weltgeschichte'. In that book, he writes: "Like to a petitioner who is just leaving after an audience, a piquant, striking words occurs to history almost always delayed."
