The word I think you're looking for, Mr. Affleck, is mercurial.
Is it true that...? Gossip is the ability to deride in others what we practice with better discrection? I don't really know for sure.
Sure, but... doesn't gossip suggest the innate willingness of a community to agree, wordlessly and almost artfully, on acceptable mores? It seems instinctual and, on occasion, dangerous, but may be yet another indication of a genetically-derived understanding of the importance (and potential beauty) of human interrelationships. I find the algorithms that guide our societies beautiful...(-what's wrong with me?-) - but I liked the movie 'Unbreakable' and can barely be trusted to speed up in the far left lane as needed.
it could mean you're all hypocritical shite.
Just. Like me. :)
If only a story could have one side, like a Moebius loop. This, this other side is the cause...destroy it!
