Me, too! I love cup-of-dirt tea!

We're reading The Purloined Poe right now (a collection of essays all about The Purloined Letter, all of which base from Derrida's reading of Lacan's reading of the story) and it's destroying me. That's what my presentation is on--one of the essays. I reread it last night and made notes, and we mainly just have to summarize and talk about the article, so it's nothing too heavy.
Don't trash philosophy. Trash the philosophers! Especially the modern ones.
Seriously, some of those guys are completely off their rockers. The fact that they're even still published today is a constant source of amazement for me.
And don't even get me started on Descarte! He had one good idea in his entire career. And, while it was a really awesome idea, it still doesn't make up for the huge pile of refuse that he left behind.
"I think, therefore I exist." Not
"I am," but "I exist." Subtle distinction, I know, but he was very specific for a reason. Truly a profound idea. Might seem obvious now but, at a time when people were questioning the existence of everything, it was positively groundbreaking.
Can you tell I'm a philosophy major?

Also if the puerh you tried smelled at all musty (like the last bag I bought from Adagio) let it sit out in the open for a few days to air out till it loses its musty smell and then try again, as that will make it a lot better. Beyond this I am happy to assure you that for every other type of tea that I had for which Adagio also stocks the Adagio one was better.
