Sententiae viri ex temporibus duobus

New Internet Jargon: Banality Inertia

It’s a familiar way of structuring an idea on the internet, especially as presented in blogs:

The world seems to have some condition

Now, portion the first are pro-SKUB, but portion the second people are anti-SKUB.

pro-SKUB arguments are lain anti-SKUB arguments are lain

Now a commenter comes along and, being a fair-minded type, can only come to the conclusion that surely some Hegellian synthesis of the two camps is sensible.

He begins typing this out and then thinks: “By Odin’s Raven, this is clearly the most banal thing I’ve ever written: everyone knows that pro-SKUB is sensible in some ways and anti-SKUB carries the day in others”.

And then you just hit the cancel button.
