MacBook Nerd…Me

While playing with Google to see what people thought about the new MacBook Pros I stumbled across JErm’s blog and the funniest quote I’ve read in a while:

Now my iBook seems like an old fussy girlfriend who doesn’t do anything cuz she’s fat and lazy. I don’t need this temptation.

A really nerdy thing for me to be amused about, I know. Want something even more nerdy?

There’s a t-shirt that Bert wears a lot that I think it hilarious. It says:

“God is Dead” – Nietzsche, 1882
“Nietzsche is Dead” – God, 1900

It certainly makes the point. Not to mention it brings up lots of fun metaphysical questions.

Comment with other nerdy pearls of wisdom. It might be fun.

  1. You want nerdy? I’ll give you some hardcore nerdy.

    Don’t get me started on the “Nietzsche is Dead” quotation. The phrase “God is dead” is always taken out of context by the religious; they miss the rest of it: “God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him.” It’s not an arrogant statement of triumph; it’s a lamentation for the modern world that no longer has any need or care for God.

    This is the sort of reaction you have to what should be harmless humourous things when you’re an English major. Alas. There’s your nerdy.

  2. 🙂 It’s a good thing philosophy majors aren’t the only ones concerned with what Nietzsche meant there. It’s really a good point. There are few people in the world anymore that truly have faith in God. Lots of people say they do, but really they are just going through the motions. I’m a big fan of pantheism myself, with a healthy dose of existentialism thrown in.

    Really when you think about it, either we killed God which makes his killing Nietzsche false, or Nietzsche was wrong and God wins. On the surface, anyway. I just like to have fun with all the implications that follow from that.
