This week: Jason uses his newfound Thiefing skills to steal Jared’s memories of sneaking downstairs as a child to watch bawdy television. Meanwhile, Jared and Natalie go on a Decent Quest for Middling Loot. It has been  weeks since Jared tried to shoehorn discussion of a Shin Megami Tensei game into an otherwise perfectly decent podcast.
sup we did this and now it is ready for consumption. please enjoy. reblogs are appreciated :)
thank god for the atlus mailing list, thats all I’ll say
I was going to make a post about how awful the accents in Burn Notice are anyway
but sweet christ Fiona’s Irish accent is something special in and of itself
Diogenes was the shit. He was easily one of the best philosophers ever. He made himself the least wealthy person, hence living in a “Barrel”. He also, upon seeing a child drinking from a river with his hands, smashed his only wooden bowl claiming to be “Bested by a child”. He did public stunts to make a point towards customs and norms including eating in the marketplace in Athens which was generally not acceptable. When Plato described humans as “Featherless Bipeds” he plucked a chicken and brought it to him, saying “here’s your man”. Plato changed that description to “Featherless bipeds with arms”.
And here’s where it gets real.
Diogenes the Cynic became well known all over. In fact, Alexander the great, the one man who could have anyone killed just because, went out of his way to find him. Upon meeting Diogenes, whom was laying on the ground, he said something to the extent of “Ah, the great Diogenes! Is there anything that I, Alexander the Great, can do you?”. Diogenes’ response was a crude “Yes, Get out of my sunlight.”
But, however, Alexander came back another time, to find Diogenes sifting through a pile of bones. Alex inquired “Diogenes, what are you doing sifting through that pile of bones?” Diogenes the Cynic responded “I’m trying to distinguish between the bones of your father, and that of a slave. I cannot tell the difference.” An insult that any man would want the other beheaded for indeed. But no, not Alexander.
Alexander went on to later say that if he were not Alexander the Great, he would wish to be Diogenes.
Dude’s a motherfuckingbadass.
My new fav person. Ever.
