    “It would be more just to punish the stars, which make a wicked action necessary,
    than to punish the poor man, who doe that wicked action by necessity.”
    —Epiphanius

    Wow…Lemont showed some uncharacteristic insight there. Wonder why it always fails him with Susan.

    Because the person he is with Susan isn’t the same person he is with C-Dog.

    “I’m not bad, I’m just drawn that way?”
    Didn’t buy it with Jessica Rabbit, sure don’t buy it with Clyde!

    Predestination is a terrific way to escape the inconvenience of accountability.

    Yeah, Clyde is sounding a little Presbyterian there – not that they all try to escape accountability.

    I yam what I yam
    or yam I?

    But claiming necessity for a wicked act is simply a claim, not a fact
    just as blaming the stars for who we are is a claim, not a fact.

    Or, as Clyde would put it…
    I yis what I yis,
    or yis I?

    “Cogito, ergo sum.” I am thinking, therefore I exist. — Rene Descartes, Meditation II.

    Suppose that our universe wasn’t really real and we were just some sort of cartoon…

    But did Rene actually think or did he just think he thought?
    -
    It’s one of those things which can’t really be measured because you have to assume any measuring stick you used actually existed and was accurate.
    -
    What if that assumption is wrong?
    -
    It’s like the concept of free will.
    Even if we are free to make our choices, are we certain our choices might have been any other way?
    -
    We didn’t make ourselves.
    Our bodies preceded our minds.
    Our minds are functions of how our body works.
    Different chemicals and stimuli affect how our body works.
    -
    Clyde’s thinking deeper today than he is generally given credit.
    -
    That’s just part of why he’s my hero.
    (not that I wouldn’t keep my hand on my wallet if I were around him, I know him too well- — assuming it is really possible to know someone else, not just think we know them or think we think we know them or….)
