Wow, I didn't mean to spark a debate or anything like that.
All I had meant to say when I brought up linguistics was that I think languages and studying them are interesting.

Think of it this way:
To politicise something is an activity, not unlike, let's say whisking.
If I say the making of a cake (employing linguistics) involves the whisking (politicising) of eggs (utterances)... to create a paste (creating borders)... you wouldn't then say I was saying that whisking 'was' eggs, or any of the other processes or items.

Also read some stuff on logic by Russell or Hodges.

Touché! I certainly can't argue with that logic or that stunning analogy.

On a positive note... it's been a distraction.

My earlier rant stands though...
...I am still having problems with 'people' in general... just... people... what the hell is wrong with people these days..? One even came to my door today.

I've been debugging this game for so long that I'm starting to break things that were fine before. :oops:

Goodness gracious! Did they walk on your lawn to get there? 'Cause that's just...too much. Sometimes I see them at the store, too.
