Ladies and gentlemen, I present the best cover in the history of music:

Edit: Apparently most people don't realize that the above statement, followed by a death metal cover of Stayin Alive, would represent a certain amount of sarcasm. I am here to tell you that it does. This song is not a great song, it is simply hilarious because it's a fucking death metal cover of the Bee Gees.

    @JK

    basically, authenticity deals with a mineness, it deals with the possibilities which are open to us. (Thus, since death is always a possibility to us, we must grasp that our death is our ultimate possibility and relate to it in a way that is fitting for our being.) Consider inauthenticity as the teenager who wants to fit in: "if everybody else was jumping off a bridge, would you do it?" Inauthenticity deals with the They, the phenomenon of "everyone" in the sense of "but everyone else is doing it!" The assumption is that only when we are ourselves are we free.

    Thus, it is a possibility to dress up, because it is our possibility to not be ourselves. (Although that would be inauthentic.) If I am still authentically myself when I have sex in a costume, great! But if I am willfully rejecting my being, assuming that of another -- another who is essentially a reified form of the they -- then I am being completely inauthentic, I am rejecting my mineness, and thus I am imprisoned in my not-being-myself. and closed off from freedom.

    I'm sorry, I'm trying to get better at summing up ontological existentialism in brief synopses, but I still kind of suck at it.

    I am thoroughly refusing to get involved in this debate because I'll bring up phylogenetic trees and hair growth in earlier human stages of evolution along with the out of Africa model.

    Fuck it.

    We used to be a species with a fuck load more hair than you see us with now, and before the ice ages it's thought we were pretty nude sure. It has been hypothesized that we wore animal skins as a sign of ability and rank, and we had alpha males but in a very very different way than you'd think of it now.

    This is only really because we've seen chimpanzee species with this kind of attitude. I guess it goes with how you want to define "human". If your starting with just Homo Sapiens then our closest down the line ancestor (I think) Is Homo Ergaster and it's thought that our genetics were made from a single link out of Africa, spreading to Asia, over Africa and what is now Europe. Almost 200,000 years ago. (Although I think we've found predating samples now so that figure may be wrong).

    We have such close relation to our cousins of Neanderthalis and the shorter and less involved Erectus, but an almost identically close relationship to Chimpanzees in the make up of our DNA. It is therefore thought that our earlier Ergaster ancestors probably acted in a way much like the Chimpanzees of today who we share such close Genomic relationships with.

    Therefore we have grown with a heirarchichal attitude. Finding direct physical evidence that stronger males lead over the weak is pretty impossible, and seeing if they wore clothes that far back I have no idea about, because I don't know if their fabrics would have held up that long.... no, they definitely wouldn't.


    I honestly have no idea what you're actually trying to get at with this.
    They were debating whether or not previous human societies, as far back as the start of Homo Sapiens wore clothing, had a heirarchichal society weren't they? I was saying that according to evidence we probably did have a hierarchichal society with alpha males, and I don't know if it's possible to surmise if we wore clothing that far back. We definitely would have been a much much hairier people, and we probably wore animal skin during the winter seasons, but it's hard to be definite.

    So

    Since you can only ever be you, pretending to be something other than you is harmful in that your hurting/hindering your own possibilities by limiting or rejecting the only existence you have that has options, your you-ness?

    I can appreciate that, however ridiculous I made it sound.
