What I Think About Things

Rating position

T. Rev
I am a temporarily retired--i.e., voluntarily unemployed--mathematician, and occasionally suffer from bouts of writing. I am disagreeable yet boring.

On So-Called 'Friends'

If I 'friend' you, it doesn't mean you are my friend. You are certainly not obligated to friend me back, and likely shouldn't.

What a Big Jerk

Well, I'm not comfortable with the way livejournal lumps together 'friends' with 'people I want to read'. If I read your journal, it's because I find your journal interesting.

On the Other Hand

This is not a 'Friends-Only' journal; I lock posts very rarely. You don't need to be on my friendslist to read it.

This journal is strictly devoted to things I find interesting, and things I want to remember. If you also find this journal interesting, feel free to friend me. If you friend me, I may or may not friend you back; this has nothing to do with whether I like you or not. See above.

What the Hell People

Postmodernism: The Drinking Game™, including the first four appended comments, is the secret key to understanding this journal.


If you write the word 'friend' enough times, it starts to look like it's spelled wrong.
