Hi there, and welcome to what is destined to become your new favourite blog. Unless, of course, you're not very cool. In which case, you probably won't like it very much.
My name is Lance.
I'm a Philosophy major using a philosopher's toolbox to investigate philosophy (that's so meta), politics, literature, nutrition & fitness, education, psychology, sociology, history, science, religion, technology, the general human condition, and more.
Activities that I enjoy include making bad jokes, playing chess, go, & other strategy games, solving puzzles, cooking, eating food drenched in hot sauce, exercising, reading, writing, socializing, taking long walks, and generally striving towards self-improvement and living a fulfilling, virtuous, happy life.
A thoughtful counter-argument is always more appealing to me than unthinking agreement.

I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around this for a couple minutes now… I think it’s saying that it’s not the case that everyone will be attending parties except for next week… Which seems… True. I think.
It’s made more complicated by the fact that saying someone is attending “no party” is really atypical and difficult to process even without the double-negation.
