Them feels

Light thinks it travels faster than anything
but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels
it finds the darkness has always got there first,
and is waiting for it."

Last time this was posted, everyone in the comment section thought they were extremely smart by pointing out that light is a physical thing and darkness is the absence of a physical thing.

It was the most cringe worthy thing ever. People seem to abandon the ability to take a joke when they can try and act smart for a second.

But it is not a joke, it is an attempt of someone tying to do some metaphysical philosophical ******** .

It is a joke. And it's from a very successful comical writer.

Darkness is the absence of light. Which means Darkness is nothing. Nothing is faster than light.

Just because it's a nice sounding metaphor doesn't mean it means anything. It's poetry or something.

It's Terry Pratchett. It's British Humour.
User avatar #91 to #90 - demandsgayversion (07/17/2013) [-]
So that was supposed to be funny?
#92 to #91 - someoneforamoment (07/17/2013) [-]
It's from a book about a giant, disk-shaped world held up by four elephants who themselves are stting on the back of a giant pace turtle that no one knows what the gender is (which is pretty important because they fear the world may get crushed).

You decide.

I don't understand British humor.
#97 to #94 - someoneforamoment (07/17/2013) [-]
Well then, British humour doesn't understand you.

Was that anouther joke? I doun't get it.

How is this "feely" in any way?

I was creating a long detailed scientific explanation about why this quote is BS with a picture of sheldon cooper at the image.... but I found out I had diarrhea half way through writing it and deleted it to write this.
User avatar #53 to #52 - Quarma (07/16/2013) [-]
I'm pretty sure that a picture of the diarrhea would be better than the picture of sheldon cooper.

That's like saying the cameraman at the end of a race line won because he was there first.
#45 to #44 - anon (07/16/2013) [-]
More like saying the finish line won because it makes no goddamn sense
User avatar #18 - eating (07/16/2013) [-]

"If light travels so fast, how come it's never caught a ninja?"

But remember, there are things that go bump in the we must be the ones to bump back.

I read Star Wars EU novels. In them, there is always this Jedi's code of this and that. Basically, they are all about the Light Side of the Force, sworn to beat the SIth and their worship of the Dark Side of the Force. I thought, hey, its must be the Jedi's fault too, since, if the Light shone at its most brightest, the Darkness of the shadow would be the deepest.

The only thing that travels faster than light i bad news.

-I think this is from The Hitchhikers Guide. Im not sure. I probably havent even quoted it correctly, but still, its a better quote.
User avatar #34 to #21 - crawlerz (07/16/2013) [-]
That is a quote from The Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy.

If you liked that book, you should really read Reaper Man.
Its possibly the best book I've ever read. (second to pretty much everything else Terry Pratchett writes)
