Smoking and reading don't really mix (with Pynchon being the obvious exception, Gravity's Rainbow begs to be re-read stoned off your ass), I usually prefer it as a way to unwind after a hard day of study.

My current schedule

>Wake up
>largest breakfast I can stomach
>quad shot of espresso
>morning walk and a cigarette to refresh the sleeping body
>autodidact study until I get a migraine
>pop half a dozen T3s, smoke a trio of nice big bong tokes and chug down a cup of Kava Kava brew
>go for an evening walk listening to Trap music
>get home, brew some chamomile valerian tea and take a mixture of various OTC herbal sleep supplements
>pass out at some point and regain consciousness in the morning
>rinse and repeat

I'm comfortably in a downward spiral leading to a life of empty intellectualism and homelessness AKA the only patrician lifestyle still available. Now if I could only build up the courage to jack off at the grocery store, I could start to live like a true Diogenes.

What's the proper way to respond to a logical fallacy when one is in a debate?

Do I simply point it out for what it is?

Do I then have the moral high ground to state a similar logical fallacy to highlight the absurdity of my opponent's use of a fallacy?

>It was in Corinth that a meeting between Alexander the Great and Diogenes is supposed to have taken place. The accounts of Plutarch and Diogenes Laërtius recount that they exchanged only a few words: while Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight". Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes.", to which Diogenes replied "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes.

Was there a philosopher more based than Diogenes?

I don't think of my self in a better light than people in a vertical sense. We're all disgusting shit stains full of shit speaking shit, so I'd only be lying if I said I thought the shit that fills my intestines, mouth and soul was better than the next guys shit. I do however, like to think of myself on my own island on the horizontal side of things.

why do you read books to begin with? ask yourself that and meditate on what you find. or perhaps we here at 4chan can help, mwaaahaha.

not only to tell people that you read something, which is kind of superficial, or just that the ending is good, because what if it isn't, i'd go for the total interpretation of the text and the new "body" that you've acquired from seeing reality through the eyes of the author; to pick up more "colors" to paint your world with.

oh, and >>2285359 is silly if he/she couldn't figure out what you meant by that, silly people, there are. surely he'll comment on how many a's i put in "mwaaahaha".
