Oh, ouch!

Not to be picky but you're going to need a comma between the interjection "Hey" and the adjective "brainless".
Only if you interject a pause after the beginning word "Hey".

Otherwise, the entire line is one clause and so the comma can come after the last word when you pause.

A greeting or a sentence addressed to someone at the beginning of a passage or a note has only 1 comma at the end of it as in formal letter writing.

Ok, idiot?

Additionally, in this context "brainless homo" isn't a proper noun so need not be capitalised.
It can be if it is used as a title or as a sobriquet that is addressed to a person and so in such a case it is always highlighted with the first letter of every word of the title beginning with a capital letter.

The same goes for fanatical.
Read the explanation above.

Didn't you know that a common noun can used as a highlight or as a proper noun and as such it can then be written with the first letter of the word beginning with a capital letter?

LOL.

How can anyone compete with such Oscar Wildesque repartee?
Hey Fool,

You forgot to put the article "an" before Oscar.

So, the corrected sentence should be re-written as:

How can anyone compete with such an Oscar Wildesque repartee?

Ok?

You forgot to insert a comma after the phrase "Not to be picky" since the conjunction "but" that separates it from the succeeding clause - "you're going to need a comma between the interjection "Hey" and the adjective "brainless" - is relating two unconnected parts - one a phrase and the other a clause. Besides, there's a pause after the phrase "Not to be picky." Get it, fool?

Additionally, in this context "brainless homo" isn't a proper noun so need not be capitalised.
In the above clause, the phrase "in this context" is an insertion that if extracted from the clause would not take away from the meaning intended to be conveyed and so a comma should be put after the word "context".

So, the corrected clause should be:

Additionally, in this context, "brainless homo" isn't a proper noun so need not be capitalised.
Rick Moss wrote:

Except of course if you meant to use Homo as in the Latin word for "human".
There's a pause after the word "except" and so a comma should be inserted after "except" and besides the phrase "of course" is an insertion and so it should be separated by commas from the rest of the clause. Additionally, a sentence should not begin with a preposition like "except". It's bad construction.

Corrected sentence:

Except, of course,if you meant to use Homo as in the Latin word for "human". a continuity with a pause is usually separated from the preceding clause by a semi-colon or a comma.

And, much more.....

People with Science/engineering, mathematics and economics degrees rank highest in average intelligence. If it's combined with critical/rational thinking, and not being brainwashed by religions, and living in one of the least religious/least irrational countries in the world (like the nations of Scandinavia), they should be doing the best.

Hugh dear:

You said on a few occasions that you're a "genius" in A-level math and that you were able to complete the 2 year math course in 1 year.

So, a simple question for an A-level math genius like you (smiles):

e is the Euler number.

Euler (pronunciation: oil-er or oy-ler)

So, solve:

e = 1 + 2/2!+ 3/3!+........n-2)/(n-2)!+(n-1) /(n-1)!+ n/n!

I'M A MYSTICO-RATIONALIST: NO RELIGION FOR ME:

If at all I intend latching on to a religion, it will be Buddhism for known reasons. But, I prefer staying out of all religions since the knowledge at my disposal about the reality is way beyond the teachings of every religion even Buddhism. Every religion is a limitation and ultimately revolves around the worship of a typal being usually an evil typal being of the vital plane or at the most the faith could culminate in the worship of its founder who would be a person of perversity or have limited knowledge and ordinary inner experiences. With me the yogic experiences are continuing till the present in a most spontaneous way without me making any effort and so, I'd rather be a spiritualist or a mystico-rationalist who's free to explore the scales of the manifested reality leading right up to the source which is the unified field of consciousness-energy. Let's see how far it goes. At present, I'm on the sidelines.

So, can e be calculated from this infinite series?

e = 1/0!+ 1/1!+ 2/2!+ 3/3!+........n-2)/(n-2)!+(n-1) /(n-1)!+ n/n!

Or is a modification required?

THE YAJURVEDA AND THE GOSPEL OF JOHN:

1) "In the beginning was the Word (Vaak), and the Word (Vaak) was with Brahma, and the word (Vaak) was Brahma"

(Prajapati vai idam agra asit, Tasya vak dvitiya asit, Vag vai paramam Brahma)-

Source: Krishna Yajurveda, Kathaka Samhita, 12.5, 27.1

2) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." –

Source: The New Testament, Gospel of John 1.1

It's obvious that the author of the Gospel of John was influenced by Vedantic thought.

However, the Vak or Primal Vibration of the Vedanta is not the same Vak or Word of the NT since the NT reaches up to the 4 cosmic plane, the higher vital, while the Vak of the overmind of the Vedanta begins from the 9th cosmic plane and extends upto the 12th cosmic plane.

PS: Brahma is the manifested Overmind Cosmic Consciousness-Force Principle connected with the manifestation of the cosmic mind, cosmic vital, cosmic subtle physical and cosmic gross physical planes. The quadruple Overmind planes number 9 to 12 in the cosmic hierarchy.

Sooner or later, the tens of thousands of Israelis that're in India will set up a township or a small state somewhere in North India that'll be governed by the laws of their own making. They love it here and chill and de-stress.

Beh hahts lah khah.

Gigantic Pentagram Found in
Kazakhstan – Can Be Seen in
Google Maps
A gigantic pentagram was found in Google
Maps in an isolated region of Kazakhstan,
West of the city of Lisakovsk (coordinates
+52° 28&#8242; 47.14&#8243;,+62° 11&#8242; 8.38&#8243;). The circle’s
circumference is over 1000 feet wide and
contains a clearly defined, mathematically
correct pentagram. The pentacle (a
pentagram inside a circle) is used in
ritualistic magic and the inverted
pentagram is used in black magic.
The logo of the Church of Satan – the Sigil
of Baphomet – consists of an inverted
pentacle with the goat of Mendes.
A few days ago, when one would zoom into
the pentagram with Google Maps, two
strange locations would pop up, one named
“Adam” and another “Lucifer”. However,
since the story came out on the web, these
locations disappeared and zooming into
pentagram is now disabled.

When an infant cries out for attention sometimes you just have to let it cry.

So, just put on the final season of "Lost" and turn the sound way up. They'll get over it eventually.

Welcome back.

Missed you (papa).

As for taste, materialism and aesthetics, well, you're a total misfit where the high life is concerned.

No offense intended.
