Finsternis

Post by pinback » Fri May 08, 2020 2:03 pm

After a bit of a falling out, and the passage of a few years, Finsternis contacted me again. Upon hearing I'd lost 120 pounds and was under 200 for the first time since I was in my twenties, he immediately began to explain how I was doing it all wrong, and he knew all the secrets that the LAMESTREAM MEDIA wouldn't tell you.

He bought me this book off of Amazon and had it sent to me immediately:

By the way, Finsternis weighs 400 pounds ("down from 430!")

In some ways I've calmed down since the groucho years so I'm sure I could be nice to him if he were to join us here. It's not his fault he's a racist.

Actually, that's true. I was remeberinmg I had heard
the phrase in a movie, and searching that phrase turned up the 1958 movie South Pacific:

You’ve got to be carefully taught.

You’ve got to be taught before it’s too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You’ve got to be carefully taught


A little kid will make friends with anyone, and they don't know anything or care about other kids color, or religion, or where they live, or wealth status, or any other irrelevant characteristic.

It takes a parent, or other relative, to fuck them up with horrible lies, like how whites are superior to blacks, now Mexicans steal, how Chinamen can't be trusted because they have slanty eyes, or that some imaginary man in the sky, that we can't see. or hear, and have no evidence of his existience, is the one that climbs down chimneys and leaes presents on Dec. 24, or that he watches everything you do, and if you don't do what he wants, he will burn you in a fire, roasting you for all eternity, making you suffer intolerable agony... because he loves you!

What is his motivation for mailing you diet books, as you are the single least person on the planet to need or want them

Any personal relationship he has is simply seen as an opportunity to prove his own wisdom/"right-ness". This all came up within 15 minutes of reconnecting. It's the deep, unfathomable sickness of an ego run amok.

I would pay him to post on caltrops. Look, there is no denying that he is a decent man and a Hall of Fame-level bulletin board poster.

Can you cite the bulletin board where he got inducted by his peers into a Hall of Fame?

It's sort of a Pete Rose situation.

No, he bet that he wouldn't lose his job for posting racist shit on the web. He was an absolute genius, ahead of his time by at least 10 years before cancel culture even really got going.
