How do you relate to the phrase, ‘every cloud has a silver lining’?
Thom: I am suspicious of superficial dim optimism. More like, ‘There is a dim possibility that things may happen for a reason, at least some of the time while, even if we don’t understand (as conscious entities) why right now… after all there is only right now...You’re welcome.’
Stanley: To that, I take out my can of patented cliché remover and spray liberally. I would add that if every cloud has a silver lining then it would follow that life is a bowl of fucking cherries which it patently is not.
