Personality is destiny

Nice. Make no apologies! That's good. I wish I could be adopted by a family and make love to their daughter in one of these. Why not? There's only 1.3 billion Chinese.

I have often thought of finding a word that encapsulates the spiritual feeling that comes with the decor and environment of a Chinese restaurant in America: grease, fluorescence, life, pinkness, stained but cute clothes, red-cheeked girls behind the counter. Very Chinese, and very sexy and poor. How they have no idea what I think of them.

Who's happier? Americans who are stuffed with anti-depressives and anti-anxiety medicine living in isolated mansions playing video games and using porn? Mother Theresa thought the U.S. was spiritually desolate, and didn't feel good coming here. Compare that to India, where there is visible death and poverty, yet a certain serenity in the face of things anyway. Having said that, I am scared of China sometimes, and their ruthless practicality and willfulness to 'become somebody' in the face of just getting their act together on the world stage.

I just meant to write about Italo Calvino's 'The Baron in the Trees', about a viscount who retires to the trees to look down at society. Italo Calvino is nice, and especially apt at giving a sense of solidarity and humor in this current world where the rug is being pulled out from under our feet, with the sense that nobody really knows how to escape the conditioning that is turning everyone into a perpetual man-child.

"Mother Theresa thought the U.S. was spiritually desolate, and didn't feel good coming here."

Mother Theresa was full of shit. I advise you to read/watch Hitchen's book/doc The Missonary Position, which tells how this "saint" advanced the twisted policies of the Catholic Church, rubbed shoulders with tin horn dictators and ultimately took money from Michael Milken (1980s S&L scandal Milken) and then refused to give the money back when told it was dirty. All this and more from your precious Mother Theresa...

Re: Personality is destiny

Gandhi shafted his own brother's wife! Jesus was a slimeball and a gambler! Kennedy fucked cheap whores! Lord Byron fiddled his accounts! Abraham Lincoln showed little slave girls his cock under the table! Hitchin crawled to Bush! God is a pervert! The internet is a douche! You have bad breath and are motivated mainly by self-interest! Trust no-one! Investigate everyone!

Re: Personality is destiny

yes. ESPECIALLY those deemed "saints" by a culture. if they're writers or politicians, you can assume the worst already. no need to prove it to yourself.

Wow, you'd expect better than that from a nun wouldn't you?
