Why jeans are preferred to be only in black/blue shades?

Some are good, some are very good, and some need to be questioned.

Comical, entertaining and musical. It relates to our discussion on "Unquestioning Obedience". Jews are among the smartest people in the world.

Narrator says:

"Tradition;

You may ask, "How did this tradition get started?"


I will tell you;

"I don't know." "

For something that is refered to as entertainment and fiction, I have found a great deal of truth in music and theatre.

Why would we assume that truth should be found outside of fiction or 'entertainment'? If these things do not deal with truth, they are worthless. To quote the Japanese author Haruki Murakami, from a speech he gave in Jerusalem a few years back:

I have come to Jerusalem today as a novelist, which is to say as a professional spinner of lies.

Of course, novelists are not the only ones who tell lies. Politicians do it, too, as we all know. Diplomats and military men tell their own kinds of lies on occasion, as do used car salesmen, butchers and builders. The lies of novelists differ from others, however, in that no one criticizes the novelist as immoral for telling them. Indeed, the bigger and better his lies and the more ingeniously he creates them, the more he is likely to be praised by the public and the critics. Why should that be?

My answer would be this: Namely, that by telling skillful lies - which is to say, by making up fictions that appear to be true - the novelist can bring a truth out to a new location and shine a new light on it. In most cases, it is virtually impossible to grasp a truth in its original form and depict it accurately. This is why we try to grab its tail by luring the truth from its hiding place, transferring it to a fictional location, and replacing it with a fictional form. In order to accomplish this, however, we first have to clarify where the truth lies within us. This is an important qualification for making up good lies.
