Immensely. I never thought that I would see the word "bullshit" used so repeatedly in one post without giving some of our more sensitive moderators apoplexy.
I can imagine a sudden epidemic of blue faces behind the curtain, but with some measure of restraint, one would hope.
I have never given it much thought, but clearly I have grasped the true essence of bullshit all my life simply by instinct.
And it bears only the most tenuous connections to truth and lies. It explains, clearly why we all claim to know it when we hear it, even though we can't define it, exactly.
This little essay has, in addition reminded me of the richness of our language, and the subtleties of changes of meaning between seemingly related words.
Good way to start off a Saturday.
