Philosophy - The Funny, the Bad and the Groaners

Recommended Posts

From The Readers Digest, perhaps not epistemology or philosophy, but a deep thought.  

As we watched a program about a man with agoraphobia, my wife asked, “Is that a disability?”

“Yes,” I answered.

“Maybe I have that.”

I shook my head. “No. He’s afraid to leave the house. You just like to stay home.”

I got this on a Carl Jung site here.

This is one for the Kantian sublime feeling.


"One must still have Chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star."
-- Friedrich Nietzsche.



Betcha can't unsee or unthink that.

🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 

As the saying goes, Nietzsche is pietzsche.

I'm going to stop as I look in awe at what my future might be as a star...

I wish I had made this one up, but I didn't. I found it out there somewhere in the Interwebs.


A horse walked into a bar and orders a beer.

The barkeep says, "You're in here pretty often. Do you think you might be an alcoholic?" 

The horse replies, "I don't think I am," and vanishes from existence. 

This story is about Descartes' saying, "I think; therefore, I am.

But this could not be explained first because the story would be putting Descartes before the horse.
