"me and my guys"
I haven't a clue what you're on about but whatever it is, it sounds like some cosy old-boys' club...
15 years back?
You mean 1999? you'll have to give me more of a clue than that. Reading you is like trying to do the cryptic f-ing crossword...
"Besides which, intellectual arguments are the thing the bears..."
Don't you mean 'inerlekshul'?
'weez doan like you booklarnin folk in these parts, now where's m'gun? git on out o here!'
"start listening to your own damn self. Society can play catch-up later.
I'm listening. All I can hear is my heartbeat and the sound of breathing. Society is a long way behind and is running in the opposite direction.
Enough of this, you're starting to rub off on me...
