Thank you, Seamus

Reader comment on item: "Islam" Does Not Mean "Peace"
in response to reader comment: DHIMMI WILL YOU LISTEN FOR ONCE?

This gave me some much needed comic relief. Thanks for alleviating some of my frustration.

I almost feel like I should be having a cigarette now...whew!

You are much funnier in Arabic than Dhimmi manages to be, despite his self-proclaimed mastery of that language.

"If you understand something in only one way, then you don't really understand it at all. This is demonstrated when you then run into a problem involving that something; without those connections to the rest of what we know, you cannot enlarge the context in order to solve the problem. You are simply stuck with a thought that just sits in your mind with nowhere to go. Knowledge without synthesis becomes practically useless. The secret of what anything means to us depends on how we have connected it to all the other things we know, or failed to" -Marvin Minsky

This problem arises more often for some (who shall remain nameless, but their initials are DNM), than for others.
