11:52 am - More memery.

5 questions from jadelennox. Answers also in Latin and Rikchik.

5 rogationes a jadelennox. Responsa quoque Anglice et Ilpedice.

1. Latin poetry or puzzles?

I would keep the Latin poetry. But the choice is a painful one even to think about.

Poesin Latinam servo. Sed lectionem contemplari me dolet.

2. Snuggling or music?

A fight with whichever god or person was compelling the choice.

Proelium cum quoquo deo vel homine qui lectionem cogit.

3. Gabrielle or Willow?

Willow. Gabrielle's too mature for me.

Salix. Gabriela prudentior mihi est.

4. Daniel Pinkwater or Kim Stanley Robinson?

Pinkwater. I can live without grandiose, but not without silly.

Auctor libri cui nomen "Musica Lacertarum." Sine notionibus grandibus vivere possum, sed non sine absurdis.

5. How is it possible to maintain that some questions are better than others in a way that cannot be entirely reduced to a binary opposition? Since it is obvious that no memer actually thinks that all questions are equally interesting, what kind of evaluation does memeing permit?

Holding a question to be better than another is itself a binary opposition. A meme like this one are not a compressed opinion like the "Good or Bad" of Brunching Shuttlecocks, but instead an opportunity to see a single idea from multiple perspectives.

Alteram rogationem meliorem altera habere ipsum oppositio bina est. Memata similia huic memati non sunt sententiae condensatae, sicut programma cui nomen "Bonum aut Malum" apud Pilas Pennatas Quae Hora Quinta Comedunt, sed etiam his mematibus notionem unam ex multis adspectibus videre possumus.
