    The what is art conversation is neither fun nor productive

    Something is art because it is presented as such. End of story.

    People who disagree are substituting art for "interesting" or "good".

    I present that bitcoins are art.

    They fit all the qualifying criteria.

    The long troll, getting people to buy your art and use it as money. That guy was a genius.

    Bitcoins could be a commentary on what happens when the majority don't accept fiat money. Definitely conceptual, but yes, you doing so could be art.

    Wait, so that guy who was going on and on about ketamine and silk road and being a loud prick all weekend at this music festival last year was just a really committed performance artist...

    Being open to everything being art is not a sign of a lack of intellectual rigor. The contrary is based on a personal rubric of qualifiers, nothing more nothing less.

    A lot of stuff that people think is art isn't art. I don't give a fuck if you think it might be art, it's still not art.

    Shitting into jars? Not art.

    I really don't give a fuck what you think it is. And anyone who finds such things art, is mentally damaged. No amount of opposing position will change me, but, just let that sink in there, there are people that think such that take the opposite stance of what I am as mentally damaged individuals.

    You're broken Holmes, sit there and soak that in.

    The conclusion that "everything can be art" is a very popular one to have, because it doesn't require you to think about art or examine it or care at all, but it will still please 99% of liberal and/or artsy types.

    I dunno. It doesn't make one think as much about the grand question of what art is, which is always a boring and fruitless discussion. It allows one to spend time thinking about how some particular presentation is art to them, which is probably more productive than saying "THIS ISN'T ART" and refusing to think about it.

    I tend to think of art as any creative expression of truth. And it can be interesting and worthwhile to debate the merits of a piece of art; whether its message is accurate or praiseworthy or offensive, whether its execution was technically proficient, whether the end product is something you'd like to pay to have.

    Arguing whether it 'counts' as being art is neither interesting nor worthwhile.

    I'm fine with letting freaky performance art be called art, but when it comes to the dangerous, inconsiderate, or basically anything done in public

    you can stage that shit

    if you think you might end up biting an EMT during your performance, hire an actor to be that EMT

    you can stage the whole bloody thing and make it as real as your time, planning, and wallet allow, and it will be just as good.

    I think the thing about the horse meat is that sometimes horses are not intended to get ate and are shot up with a bunch of medication and shit.

    Most cattle are shot up with a bunch of medication. Mostly antibiotics.

    Yeah. Stuff that's safe to eat.

    Horses that were never intended to be eaten are shot up with a bunch of stuff that's not safe to eat.

    The likely culprit is all the horses that are getting off the road in romania and some people who saw an opportunity.

    I'm not sure the stuff is as really safe to eat as you imply.
