…IE, SDH’s red-flagged two-link remark and, for some wacky WordPress reason, one of wdydfae’s.  Can’t figure out which one because I can’t figure out why.

The other pending comments appeared to be all spam.  But things have changed since I abandoned my digital post 19 days ago.  The text of two appear to be…Japanese?  Chinese?

Symbolese!  The one from “goyard-watch.com” said this:  最安価格

Whereas “bag-variables.com” claims this:  の秋冬新作

I fearlessly reproduce these obvious computer viruses (probably Skynet-generated) because…er…because I want to destroy the World Wide Web?

Of course, I don’t really want to destroy the ‘Net.  But in light of my betrayal of you, all nine of this blog’s readers, you are free to disagree.

(Full disclosure:  I actually do feel a little bad now, upon this return.  But I sure didn’t before.)

Why no blogging?  Don’t know exactly.  A few ambitious posts–essays, really–were begun.  But lately my every socio-politico-economico-culturo rumination soon runs into an immovable object known as what’s the point?! 

But that’s also why this one is almost finished, and will shortly be posted; I know the point of it.  The point of this particular post is Thank you for your interest in my thoughts and for your fascinating, unpredictable responses; thanks for your concern for my well-being,  and for our fellows. 

Thank you for caring that I disappeared without notice.

It’s around 4:00 A.M. here, at compostclusion.  (The conclusion of a composition of a post…duh.) In a few moments the “Publish” button will be hit and a three-week blogging vacation will end.  I’ve no plan to stop blogging but I certainly don’t want to burden you with complaints or depressed musings.  “Civilization” is now beyond–beneath?–my powers of parody.  Re:  Syria.  Are you not entertained?  Remember recent remarks by the Vice-President and the Secretary of State, and consider their combined message:

Assad’s chemical weapons are like the Holocaust, and our military response will be unbelievably small.

“A equals not-A”.  Not even Iowahawk can parody that.  And notice that even he has mostly quit blogging, in favor of Twitter quips.  So should I finally reach The Fifth Stage,  you might shortly be buried under an unending wormmelanche of puns, obscure references, and unadulterated geek-speak.  Perhaps you should count your blessings.

Oh, and also accept a second thank-you.

    The funny thing is, we don’t even know if Assad used them. All we know is somebody did, but nobody has any clue who. Of course, in the media and political rhetoric it has to be Assad, because the so called “rebels” would never do that (even though they likely have access and have an ever increasing number of Tally-how Snackbar screamers).

      Excellent point, the bet appears to be 50/50 and the current score is: rebels 1, regime 1.

      Why are we involved in this conflict? It can’t be to save lives.

      • Edohiguma says:

        Same reason you got involved in Libya.

        Let me be clear… I… me… I… me… I… me… mine…

        I’m slowly being convinced that it’s really just “because I can”. Though, if one still beats the drum for the “Arab Spring” at the end of 2013… Well, there may be some mental health issues involved as well. Cause you gotta be insane to still believe it’s about freedom and democracy.

          Bush the Elder said that M.E.W. I (Middle-East War I) was about freedom…lying. Obama does the same today. At least Dubya, for all his faults, was trying to free the Iraqi people in M.E.W. II.

          One-for-three is great in baseball, less so in warfare.

    Considering the current administration has managed to make The Onion irrelevant, one can understand the “what’s the point?” attitude.

    Is it possibly to parody a parody?

    No worries. It was a couple of NHK Fukushima links a while back. I know that WordPress blocks link-filled comments sometimes so I d)idn’t think anything of it. Nice to see you back in biz!

    First ever i-pad composed comment, writing from Edo’s beloved Edo. I like the pad but hate this screen keyboard.
