A towel maybe, but I NEVER wear lacey satin underwear.

Last one, I promise ...

Angry woman: "How can you look me in the face?"

Wheeler: "I'm just getting used to it, I suppose."

Angry woman: "I've never been so insulted in my life!"

Wheeler: "That's your fault. You don't get around enough."

Well, there ARE 1930s publicity shots of Dorothy Lee in lacey satin underwear. But this is a family forum.

Six figures? Is that all? Those glossies weren't revealing enough, were they?

Wheeler and Woolsey are masquerading as waiters in a cafe.

Customer (Abu Hamid Ibn Muhammad Ibn Muhammad al-Tusi al-Shafi'i al-Ghazali?): "Do you have wild duck?"

Wheeler: "No, but we can get a tame one and aggravate it for you."

For no good reason, here they are: Wheeler and Woolsey, plastering the beautiful and funny Dorothy Lee.

We're more like (Bert) Wheeler and (Robert) Woolsey. Anyone remember those two? Early 1930s. George Burns ripped off the round glasses-and-cigar look from Bob Woolsey.

Or maybe we're the Dead End Kids.

You two should think of writing comedy. A modern day Martin and Lewis.

Believe it or not, I don't read. I have no reasonable exlanation of where all this information came from. I did get rid of cable, hoping to encourage myself to do something more useful, but so far it's mostly been work on the car.

I've been reading Rumi and Omar Khayam lately. One of my all time favorite lines is Khayam telling us to drink wine and enjoy life, because:

"Tomorrow the Moon may look for you in vain..." (My translation from Spanish).

One thing I cannot understand is all the references to wine and drinking, when alcohol is verboten to Muslims.

Anybody can shed any light on this?

I once said, in regards to a similar subject, that empiricism's logical unimpeachablity is almost entirely negated by its total lack of practicality...

Yeah, that name could be in a Borges' story.

Agrippa's book name is actually De Incertitudine.

Gotta love that name...

At any rate this is a fantastic text, that I am falling in love with. It describes how science and philosophy are essentially worthless, and that all that can be known is that which is revealed. This is very much like Agrippa with his De Incertudine... and later with something like David Hume. A powerful read on several fronts, and I have yet to encounter someone that can honestly disprove his claims.

I got the above dual language edition so when I learn Arabic I enjoy it fully. Great short read, and a neat intro to both the Sufi skepticism, which is of course, reflected in Hermetic theosophy in the West.
