I have no record of these ruminations. Shall I keep some of them the next time and quote them ?

Sometimes I do the same with the "Foundations of Law". I read a case illustrating a legal point and then talk about it in my mind.

It can start with: Was haben die Typen gemacht ? Also wirklich, auf die Idee wäre ich nicht gekommen. So ein Unsinn ...

= what did the blokes do ? Really, what an idea, such a nonsense ...

The comments are full of emotional language, to put some colour into them.
Thanks, duszek, for further explanation. I would love a transcript of your colourful ruminations :)

Perhaps I will share mine re that Kierkegaard person I have trouble with.
But another place, another time...

Oh yes, I will provide some, to illustrate the point I make, sure.

It means that I will have to sit up and put them down on a piece of paper ... :D

So why on Earth did you resurrect this ??

You did not say much.

No subject, no verb, no object or predicate or modifiers.

It could have been written by a public high school miscreant.

So you would have something to do by replying.

Oh, no, Don't thank me. It's a charitable service I like to perform once in a while.

In the future it would be better if you said something meaningful in your posts.

Once you have an idea in your head, try verbalizing it by forming a complete sentence with a subject, verb, object, predicate, and modifiers.

If you feel like making several sentences, then try using the syllogism format of Aristotle of A=B, B=C, therefore A=C.

If it goes longer than 3 sentences then make sure you remember intro, body, and conclusion.

Pretty soon then you will be writing like someone who went to private schools rather than public.

Good luck.

Too much work huh? That's all most kids learn in public schools -- laziness.

Not exactly. But if the quality of your submission were to improve that would benefit everybody.

Then there would be less useless old thread resurrections.
