The Last, Last, Last, Last Frontier

4 June, 2012 § 1 Comment


It’s characteristic of us as humans to talk about things we have no business talking about in absolute words; every, always, very–so when I hear some white coat talk about the last frontier for humanity I liken it to that bad advertisement technique that Lucas employed for his vhs edition of the Star Wars Trilogy “For the VERY! LAST! TIME!”
Give me a break. In my mind the greatest hubris of humanity is to think that we have discovered all that there is to know about everything able to be known. This is the same principle for when somebody cusses to put power behind their statement. If what you are saying doesn’t come across as overly important, absolute words and a vulgar vocabulary are not going to the trick either.  Calmly, clearly and briefly spoken truth is the way to go every time.
