Justin Pushes the Boundaries of His New Found Minimalism While Offering a Response to Yesterday's Comments.

"A clean house is a sign of a wasted life."
--Thomas Aquinas Summa Theologica.



Hey Martha. I love you very much. You know what is important? How to keep a clean room. You taught me that. And I love you for that. I will always love you.












Dude, look at you. Sure you got in trouble with the authorities, so you are kind of like Martha. But the similiarities end there. Otherwise, you suck. I mean, dude Who Leaves Their Spindle Out?
T-A-C-K-Y. And can't you find a better place for that stack of papers than your lap?

What kind of cry for help is this? Its not like you are smarter than Martha. I saw her on Jeopardy. O.K., She didn't do that good, but she tried.

Anyway, who cares if you were the Man of the Century,when you can't even keep a clean desk?

You, sir, suck as bad as Gandhi.



Hey Leo. You understand how hard it is to keep things neat while trying to change the world, don't you? I spend up to fifteen minutes working on my daily blog. And than another 15 minutes working on my Haiku Translation of Dante, & My Autobiography to mention just two of the projects. It is amazing that I even have time to sleep. How am I supposed to find time to clean?

I'm pretty sure it's against the rules of minimalism (though not of Chinese poetry) to have such a lengthy title.

interesting.

I merely commented on the mess. You don't have to clean it up if you don't want to.

My room is messy too, but I am a very systematic, theoretical person. My world is already so arranged, so why I should spare time to arrange my surroundings, I have no idea.

Now if you only looked like guy number two (Einstein, not Gandhi) complete with walrus moustache, you would be perfect.

I don't think anyone offered to clean your room. A holy mess should be left as it is. Years from now when archaeologists are digging through the debris they will be able to make all sorts of pertinent and poignant discoveries.

What are fractals? Do you know? where I can find pictures of fractals that occur in nature?
can you understand portuguese?

See you later!

Fractals? Well, they occur quite a bit in mathematics and physics. No irony there.

Donnak said...

LOL that's good.

I have to admit, I don't ever make my bed - what's the point? You're just going to get back in it later that same night anyway! LOL

cleanliness, schmeanliness, look at the world, look at the moon, look at the brains of all you smart people, why would anybody care about clean surroundings, dead bodies, junk cars, recycled trash at the mcdonalds, for people who can't tie their own shoes, and guru backwards is u rug, and he's a god, dog, and english is a joke, but the only one we have, really, why bother, amigo? You know jenn, he just turns the shorts inside out and calls em clean.

Your comments on personalities like Gandhi and Eienstien are not welcome. It would have been appreciated if u could use better language to express your differences with these famous person who have actually taught thousands of people in the world on how to Live a life in its own way. Martha may have inspired you but there is no comparision amongnst these famous people.
