  1. No, you're content and wise. Am I weird for having my hairdresser style me after somebody who took the pictures I use in 1968 (and naturally had a really period-specific cut)?

My aspirations to get my hands on that last one was what got me into record collecting, so I don't regret it. My wallet hurts, but my heart (and ears) tell me it was all worth it.
  3. No, for it can be argued easily that it'd divert focus. Am I weird for planning to spend an entire day speaking only in poetic verse (prewritten for every likely conversation I'd have), and never explaining why or even acknowledging it afterwards?
  4. At least you didn't say pre-2000, I'd be here all night. No order... There Will Be Blood Casino Royale (2006) The Dark Knight O Brother, Where Art Thou? The Lord of the Rings (2001-03) Spider-Man 2 Finding Nemo King Kong (2005) Kung Fu Panda The Departed Inception The Revenant Guardians of the Galaxy Toy Story Blade Runner 2049 Captain Phillips Avatar District 9 Taken 3:10 to Yuma V for Vendetta 300 (laugh all you want...) No Country for Old Men Django Unchained And technically, it's a show before it's a movie, but Ninja is justified in the exception. Cowboy Bebop is the best anime.
  5. Found two compilations with a good portion of the stuff in the SVF. The Hellenistic Philosophers (which has Epicurean and Pyrrhonist stuff for kicks) and The Stoics Reader. I'm tearing into the latter at the moment. Contrary to the recommendation of Chrysippus, I'm going with ethics before logic (at least fully; I do need some logic for ethics), but I'll do physics last. I need the ethics first and foremost, I think.
  6. Welcome to Ross' Stoa, Hidetora, I hope you brought your own papyri to take notes.
  7. Watch out for the giant spiders; they'll eat you like popcorn.
  8. Looking for English translations of Stoicorum Veterum Fragmenta; I'm tired of just getting randomized quotes from the three old heads of that school, and I want to read the most complete fragment compilation available... but the only (supposed) English version I've found is in four volumes, each individually over $100. Why, oh why... Edit: Apparently, there is no English translation, I was confused. I have to track down each individual source in hopes that they, themselves are translated.
  9. Live according to nature, abide the gods of Socrates, and you will find virtue, where you will find peace.
  10. You can't, Isis is immortal. And why would you want to do such a thing? Isn't she the patron saint of women and children? I still can't fly when I flap my arms, can anyone teach me?
  11. Fallout is all-time because it's sentimental, but there are others I hold dear to my heart. Would you get an Amphicar just to troll your passengers?
  12. Maybe, but he's easier to like than most characters in that franchise. I thought he was entertaining in the parts I didn't sleep through. Am I weird for still not being afraid to sleep in Golden Gate Park even after being taken into the joint for doing it?
