from Lawrence, Pub Philosophy Group, Sunday meeting: To Pretend

we start at 18;30pm

Dear friends,
This Sunday we are discussing To Pretend.
A strange subject, I must admit, but certainly a relevant one for a
philosophy discussion. Of course, we can try and pretend to be what
we're not, and sometimes even to pretend we're not what we are. Like all
strategies or games we see some sort of benefit if we try to pretend
something. But equally important is to know when to stop pretending.
In the meantime Ignacio wanted to share with you this funny story as a
consequence of globalisation:
SO FUNNY!! SO TRUE!!
I was recently in Vancouver and decided to learn the Chinese language,
so I could understand the check-outs at McDonalds.
My next move is to learn Indian, so I can understand my doctors and the
person that answers the phone when I have a warranty problem.
Yep, by the time I read this, I was able to understand the 1st line.
"TENJOOBERRYMUDS"... (first line)
The rest is here..... http://tinyurl.com/38ejora

Best Lawrence
