  1. A Commodian Wit - Common Ground

    I delay a post on education again to discuss a fairly universal, but also universally difficult concept, the Common Ground. Why do I delay? Minutes ago, I walked into a drama that was entirely caused by one party lacking the 'common sense' the other party held. "But Commodus, what's special about someone not having common sense?"

    Well, see, common sense is only as common as your exposure to the sense, and in this drama, it was a delightfully simple concept that was the source ...

  2. Brewster's final thoughts on his TWC participation through the years.

    Long have I aspired writing something that detailed my great deeds upon this website. Like how HorseArcher told the tale of the last Emperor. Fact remains I never did great deeds on this website so you cannot write about your great deeds if you didn't commit them. So maybe I'll write a bit about my mediocre participation on this board. As now more than ever and yes, I'm aware that I often announced my retirement from the site, the end of my time here really comes near.

  3. A Commodisan Wit - Power

    I'll stop farming for skeptical commentary on my motivations and delve in a new direction this week. Initially I'd wanted to comment on education (probably the most lucid subject I'd be talking about so far), and perhaps I will; but after the past few days I've simply come up with a few thoughts on Power, and now I spoon them out to you in the hopes there is something in them that might be mildly interesting.

    To go on a tangent, one can approach the broad concept of power in a few different ...
  4. A Commodian Wit - Purpose

    A majority of this blog will be invalidated on the spot by those who take the understandable path of 'it's life man, just live it, stop thinking about it'. It is healthier to be so. It allows philosophical obsessing to fade away. It, indeed, helps sooth the pain of all fading away, as it inevitably does on the path of time.

    Yet my existence, my perspective, my drive is built on the pursuit of purpose, an ironic thing from one who doesn't subscribe to conventional religion. Yet this ...

  5. The Football Rant - Fotball is Cancelled

    For the better. Corona is upon us, and after two weeks too many of play the Premier League, Fa Cup, Euros, Tippeligaen, etc etc have finally been postponed. But too late, Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta for example is in isolation after being infected. Luckily he's about the youngest manager around, so he'll be fine. But what if someone like Roy Hodgson got it? He's 72, which means that when Sky sports pondered on barring anyone above 70 from entering a football game, he'd be in big trouble. The whole ...
