I never finished my abbreviated thoughts on the Intellectual Whores website.
Yes, it is still floating around in my brain. I’m afraid it will for quite some time.
I still don’t have much to say about the site and its content other than two brief things before I resume the almighty homework.

This could be, admittedly, due to the strength of my reaction to the intellectual whore concept/writings. State of shock and dulled reactions and all that.
Secondly, I’ll just say that after I read the intellectual whore portion of the site, I found I had never in my life wished to be considered unattractive more than then…
