An interim post while I think of something, anything, more interesting to throw your way. My life is largely absorbed with how to entertain, impress, and otherwise get you to validate me. So how about a little appreciation. Well, then, here we go, and it’s probably more impressive than you expected. Which is a lesson for you.
A short history of the Internet:
As you are probably well aware, the Internet was invented by the Vatican around the time of the Council of Trent. This is the same bun-fight where they decided Mary was a Virgin, the Pope was infallible, and that celibacy would be mandatory for priests, though as compensation, every priest would have a personal-assistant-type orphaned choirboy allocated to him. Which is the way they carried on back then.
Nowadays, by contrast, celibacy is looked on as quite shocking.
Oh, and another decision at the Council of Trent was that the Pope would always wear Balenciaga, which is why you have those coats of arms and “By appointment to” on everything by Balenciaga that you own.
Anyway, don’t try and tell me you came here for history. Please.
