: philosophy? pah! it all just seems like mental masturbation. sure it's nice, but where does it get you?
Masturbation leads to orgasm, and orgasm is. . . well, pleasureable?

Is pleasure a noble enough end? Some people just get pleasure from playing with ideas. Do I need to point out --fellow participants-- that this is an illustration of how certain minds are disposed to different kinds of thoughts? Some people don't get a buzz from doing what we try to do here. Others do.

I also beleive that my examinations of how ideas behave have affected and improved the way I behave in the world. PErsonal development, decision making, etc.
