Immanuel Kant is a son of a bitch

Seriously, look at that smarmy motherfucker.

I hate everything this man's ever written. If he were alive, I'd tell him to go kill himself.

But oh wait, no, he can't because his fucking theory on morality says that suicide is wrong because he would be using himself as a vessel for pleasure or some shit, which isn't moral, so he can't do it. Sounds like somebody tried a couple times and didn't quite have the nerve, eh Immanuel?

Immanuel Kant is the huge vagina of political theory.

    Immanuel Kant
    1724-1804
    Nationality: Prussian

    Group Alliances:
    "Terrible" Transcendental Idealists
    "Destructive" Deontologists
    "Contemptible" Constructivists

    AKA: Hometown Manny
    The Punctual Prussian
    The Virgin
    The Categorical Imperator
    I've Fallen and I Kant Get Up
    The Greatest Modern Philosopher

    Powers: follows rules well, can leap as high as hundreds of times his own height

    Weaknesses: sometimes seen as overly critical

    Notes: This figure is, of course, only the phenomenal Kant toy. The deluxe version, Noumenal Self® Kant, is available only on special order and costs $339.95 (plus tax and S&H).

    The reader may wonder, "Why is Kant blue with red tiger stripes?" Well, why twelve categories? I don't know. It was decided that a toy representing as important a philosopher as Kant ought to be unique in some way, that there ought to be some kind of toyly manifestation of his philosophical greatness. Blue with red tiger stripes was deemed sufficiently bad ass.

    Well the categorical imperative in its first forumalation would definitely not be universalizable in the case of suicide. He can't will that everyone should commit suicide, so nobody should.

    The second formulation, I guess suicide is using yourself as a means to an end (death) instead of an end in yourself? So he'd probably shake his head there too.

    Aside from Perpetual Peace, Kant is really not a huge political theorist either. Trying to limit Kant to one aspect of philisophy isn't going to work, IMO.

    Actually, it was Heidegger Heidegger was a boozey begger who could drink you under the table...

    If memory serves.

    Not really. Suicide, especially mass suicide, is, from his point of view, "against the natural order". An individual does not kill itself willingly because to its nature, it makes no sense.

    Still, his whole imperative stuff doesn't work and everyone knows, so...

    I would like to pause for a moment, to talk about my penis.
    My penis is like a toddler. A toddler—who is a perfectly normal size for his age—on a long road trip to what he thinks is Disney World. My penis is excited because he hasn’t been to Disney World in a long, long time, but remembers a time when he used to go every day. So now the penis toddler is constantly fidgeting, whining “Are we there yet? Are we there yet? How about now? Now? How about... now?”
    And Disney World is nowhere in sight.

    Dammit you're totally right. SHITSTICKS!
    The Philosopher's Song (Monty Python)

    Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
    Who was very rarely stable.
    Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
    Who could think you under the table.
    David Hume could out-consume
    Schopenhauer and Hegel,
    And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
    Who was just as schloshed as Schlegel.

    There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teach ya'
    'Bout the raising of the wrist.
    SOCRATES, HIMSELF, WAS PERMANENTLY PISSED...

    John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,
    On half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.
    Plato, they say, could stick it all the way;
    Half a crate of whiskey every day.
    Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,
    Hobbes was fond of his dram,
    And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart: "I drink, therefore I am"
    Yes, Socrates, himself, is particularly missed;
    A lovely little thinker but a bugger when he's pissed!

    I spent an hour yesterday looking for a video of the Milsford Pure Spring Water commercial from SNL.

    I couldn't find it.

    all I could find was the transcript.

    Spring water the way it oughtta be - fresh and clear. Milsford Pure Spring Water. There's no other bottled water with a history as rich as Milsford.

    You see, it all started with the two towns of Milsford and Dunnbee.. and the creek that rna between 'em. Both towns lay claim to the creek and its pure spring goodness. But the simple folks of Dunbee came up with the idea to share the riches of the creek, and bottle the water so folks all around could enjoy it. The townsfolks of Milsford had another idea - to destroy Dunbee and kill all the kindly folks who lived there. And that's just what they did. Armed with knives and bullwhips, they crossed the creek in the middle of the inght and took after the innocent people of Dunbee. It only takes an extra-special water to turn neighbor against neighbor. When they were finished, most of the town of Dunbee lay dead.. in the pure water of Milsford Springs. Then, they set their dogs to finish off the wounded. The screams of the gentle people of Dunbee being savagely eaten alive could be heard up and down the banks of Milsford Springs. Along toward evening, the surviving Dunbeeites were herded into work camps.

    Hard to believe that was over 107.. days ago. You probably heard about it on the TV.

    Milsford Pure Spring Water. A rich history that you can relive with every sip. Milsford. Not Dunbee.
