Majic is a reality that students can't handle. Majic implies that a student has no means to exert control. I'm 51 and I can't be a student anymore. Majic is something that I can marginally gain a handle on. People who can be logical in the face of majic are indispensible to science, ergo, I am indispensible to science. An alcoholic Santa who tortures little kittens with his eyeballs is fearless of majic so the object lesson for me is to face my fear of majic as well. An alcoholic Santa who tortures little kittens with his eyeballs helps me more than I can help him and so that is turning the tables on my altruistic beliefs. Being responsive to cries for help may be the purpose of my being a shrill sink or dump, but Santa tells me to forgetaboutit. (Santa is better than a gun obsessed schizo whose apparent ambition is to achieve grandmaster-Jew-baitionhood. The grandmaster-Jew-baiter is deathly afraid of shrill vaginas. (I donno, maybe it's only black girls who have shrill vaginas... It's not making a statement to date only black girls no matter how much it might be against the rules to date a black girl is the way I see things.)) The only apparent function or purpose of the grandmaster-Jew-baiter is to test my fear of majic but what he doesn't know is that he is getting a lump of coal in his stocking at Christmas and for future referance for all eternity.
