Go for the upstream all you want!
Strange you think saying that is so very funny.

Note how things are funny in one era and not in another.    Read some of the so called Humor of the Day sections in the  Harper's Weeklies published in the 1800's.   Trust me, you will not be able to find a single chuckle week after week.  What changed was the background of the cultural mind ... people had radically different background assumptions back then. 

Now ask yourself some questions related to our different minds:  Why do you find it funny to tell me to "swim upstream all i want", whereas i find no humor in your suggestion at all?   You must have a model of my mind in your mind and you have some kind of empathy for it.   Could you not have predicted that i would  find your suggestion humorless?   If so, then why would you say it, and then laugh ?

What was the true meaning of your communication?

Seth says
what is the relationship between a sense of otherness and a sense of self ?

Ask not who you are, ask who is the other guy

Seth says
what is the relationship between a sense of truth, a sense of humor, and a sense of otherness?

A thing to ponder outside of the context of any current RWG bullshit interaction between us.

Bozo lost his sense of humor in his Me(I)-ness - some help from below :
Today you are you, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is youer than you.
- Dr. Seuss

Your babbling baby bro.  RDSF
loss of the sense of humor + attempted insult (rejected) is just a selfie protectionism ... enjoy the glow


well re "loss of sense of humor" ... have you "lost the sense of humor" to laugh at 1800's jokes?
What is a sense of humor anyway?   <--- a serious question to ponder

Can you say something funny to me?

Incidentally Dr Seuss's is still funny ... but used in a context indented to babble about my bozometry would not a gaffaw here raise.  But then you would have known that in advance. 

And sure i rejected your insult to me, just as you rejected my insult to you.  That, we both know is just the RWG waste of time.  I don't think there is anything left there to be learned .... do you?
