Scumbox


A conversation overheard between two grumpy, elderly figures:

Old Shape 1: I tell ya. Those dirtball cubes are taking over the neighborhood.  No respect for anything. Their angles don't even add up!

Old Shape 2: Tell me about it. But what can ya do? At least they ain't as bad as 'em triangle delinquents out by the park!  Isosceles punks...

Each generation hypocritically resents the next, like circles blaming squares for ruining geometry.

Sinners


Religion strives for ethical cohesion through prescriptive morality and the threat or reward of eternal consequence.

Rightly, the price of free will is a conscience.

But then divinity gives way to conceit, spirituality descends into Holiness, and the harshest judges become the worst offenders. 

Deliver us from hypocrisy, amen.
