I heard nobody goes to Burning Man anymore. It's too crowded. (Oh, wait, wrong club...)

I think my phone might not be working. I keep calling myself to check, and I get a busy signal every time. But that can't be right, because I haven't taken a call all day.

Maybe you have given yourself the wrong number. That's not a very friendly way to treat yourself.

Yea, and this seems to happen 100% of the time. NO EXCEPTIONS! Your problem is ALWAYS your problem. Like clockwork.

How exactly can it be that way?

I learned all about tautology in my high school American history class. The teacher was always right because the book from which he derived his answers was correct in every case. Circular logic was encouraged at every step, as was a blind adherence to the dictatorial dictates of austere authority, not to mention unwavering worship of each golden syllable which acidly dripped from the instructor's lips. Any attempt at independent thought was sarcastically quashed with a zeal usually reserved for the drunken cheering of victorious major league sports teams. Thus was I perfectly prepared for a career in Right Wing Talk Radio.

is it a tautology to say all bosses are liars? or just they are useless bastards? or should that go in a different box?

I believe it would be a tautology to say that all bosses are lying bastards because they are, each and every one, fatherless prevaricators.

I take exception with this statement:
I've been a boss, and, think I've been just fine to work for.

I was busy being busy and that kept me busy and it was doing that that kept me busy; thus, by being busy at being busy I was kept busy at being busy.

I disagree with your conclusion. In my opinion, it is incorrect.

The sweet potato, Ipomoea batata, is a member of the Convolvulaceae or morning glory family. The "regular" potato, Solanum tuberosum, is a member of the Solanaceae or nightshade family. Therefore, the two species are not related.

The correct answer is rutabaga. See the Triangle of U (below) for further explication.

I think this is obscene and that the "growing awareness" is some sort of code for erection.

I am so naive! I thought it was some sort of epistemological tautology.
But, yep, I can see the other read.
