The Hobbit is a kids’ book. LOTR more for teens and adults. The Silmarillion is for academics.

I don’t even know what a pronoun is.
Choosing between the Reverend and this guy to represent Georgia . . . aiyaiayai!
I’m suspicious of people who don’t like dogs, but I trust a dog when it doesn’t like a person.
I always disagree, however, when people end up saying that we can only combat Communism, Fascism or what not if we develop an equal fanaticism. It appears to me that one defeats the fanatic precisely by not being a fanatic oneself, but on the contrary by using one’s intelligence.
If we’re really being honest, never having a girlfriend, never having sex with a woman, really makes you more heterosexual, because honestly, dating women is gay. Having sex with women is gay. And having sex with men is gay, and, you know, really it’s all gay. And if you want to know the truth, the only really straight, heterosexual position is to be an asexual incel. That’s it. That’s all there is. Being a MGTOW, asexual incel is really the straightest position that you can have. Having sex in itself is gay, I think. I think that it’s really a gay act to begin with. Think about it this way: what’s gayer than being, like, I need cuddles! I need kisses! Oh, I need, I need, uh… it’s all very, it’s all very sus to me, you know. I need to spend time with a woman! That’s a little sus. A little bit sus. So I think, I think really, I think really, I’m like, you know, the straightest guy.
Edit: Thanks for the spelling correction, @finley.

Just because you do not take an interest in politics doesn’t mean politics won’t take an interest in you.
That’s awesome. Do you have the citation?
We do not say that a man who takes no interest in politics is a man who minds his own business; we say that he has no business here at all.
but I’m not sure if these are both taken from the same line.
AI will not replace you. A person using AI will.

That’s a substantive repost, but it’s a good one, so I’ll compromise by letting it live out its retirement here in this thread.
