Two Things I Don't Understand

Tagged: MeaCulpa / Obscurantism / ϜΤΦ

Sometimes there’s nothing to do but confess one’s own ignorance.

2 Cases in Point

In the last couple days, while hiding in bed avoiding my fear of a fascist turn in the upcoming mid-terms, a couple things have really confused me:

  1. Have you ever noticed that when you look up “ineffable” in the dictionary, they explain it by just using more words? That seems wrong, somehow. Wittgenstein had right: Wovon man nicht sprechen kann, darüber muss man schweigen, indeed!
  2. Indeed, I will never understand economics:

Lions break free; interest rate rises

(Quoted from Twitter, now mysteriously removed from all sources that Google can find. Looks like some Australian mogul got mad about being made to look like a fool?)

Notes & References

1: Nope. Too afraid of a fascist Republican victory to come out and play. And you can’t make me.
