Haven't seen him in years. Don't think too many people miss that jerk.
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

I certainly don't. Man's a cowardly twat who refused to continue our argument over here, where he wasn't protected by the admin.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

Remember when he demanded that people banned THERE be "pre-banned" HERE? That was hilarious!

He lasted about as long as other hypocritical lying twats like D'Rat, Patricio, UpChuck and the rest who think being on an internet forum is actually significant.

"Oh wait? You mean . . . being on a skeptical forum means . . . I have to . . . defend my claims? I can't just run to Mommy and demand sanctions! I'M A KOOL KID!!!"

As someone HERE would observe: "Pathetic."

You have seventeen days to retract those comments.

The reproductions don't really do justice to his works which often use particular materials.

[Meret] Oppenheim was born in Berlin on October 6, 1913, but the family moved to Switzerland the following year when her father was conscripted for World War I.

She moved to Paris in 1932 to become a painter and in 1936 gained fame with “Breakfast in fur”. The teacup covered in gazelle fur was the result of an encounter with Picasso and his mistress Dora Maar in which they decided that anything could be made out of fur.

However, she found the overnight fame overwhelming, so she retreated back to Switzerland where she spent the rest of her life working outside all stylistic conventions and refusing all labels.

Oppenheim, who died in Basel in 1985, is considered a trailblazer of the avant-garde.

Most magazine reproductions are way too contrasty.


Everybody knows her Breakfast in fur (1936):

But she created lots of other fun thingies:

"Self-portrait"

Interesting name.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shambles_ ... Manchester

Etymology[edit]
"Shambles" was a name originally used for a street of butchers shops where meat was slaughtered and sold. It is derived from the Middle English word schamel, which meant a bench, as for displaying meat for sale.[1] A shambles would have had blood, pieces of meat and offal running down the gutter,[2] and although the original meaning of the word fell into disuse, it survived as a word meaning a scene of disorder. There are also streets known as "The Shambles" in other towns in the United Kingdom, such as York, Stroud, Worcester, Sevenoaks, Chesterfield and Armagh, and a public house in Lutterworth which was once a butcher's shop and abbatoir.[3]


A "shambles" was originally a street of butcher shops.
A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.
William Shakespeare
