If my assertion is wrong, I'm sure Roy will correct me.

not that anyone in this thread is one, but i have been seeing the term "addlepate" on i d p f all these weeks, having known the word and occasionally used it for a long time, but for some reason, it did not click that it was a compound of addle and pate, as in head . . . even knowing it was a derivative of addle and therefore a compound of something when i saw it on an earlier post, i wondered for a short time what the exact origin, a desultory instant of wondering about root words and so on . . . had i gone further i would have re-invented the wheel so to speak -- uh, sort of like an addlepate. . .

@gozer;

The term "Addlepate" is on a par with someone from the SAYouth saying "Bless yore Heart."

Make sense?

Green activist lawyer burns himself to death to protest global warming.

My sympathy to his family and friends: he was obviously suffering from mental illness.

The sympathy was for the family and friends. I had none for the Darwin award candidate to torched himself.

See, the beauty is that if Roy believes this, he is not being faithful to his religious beliefs. That is not very Christian at all. If he doesn't believe this then, well, he is a liar.

See the catch 22 there Roy? :wave:

Roy, you say you love the sinner. But the you say you have no sympathy for someone who committed suicide.

That does not compute.

He was wrong to say what he did. He probably knows he was wrong. But he'll never, ever own up to it.

Nope. I ain't the Christian, and I have never made light of anyone's death. I may say dickish things, but not to your callous level. Again, this is between you and your conscience.

One foron has no sympathy for someone halfway across the country who commits suicide, and other forons call him callous, cold, and evil.

A different foron openly wishes another foron would commit suicide, and those same forons have nothing at all to say about it.

Interesting and insightful, to say the least...
