@ CK MacLeod:

Which was the point of the regression analysis crack.

@ fuster:

A mask for/of Scott... Theoretically, an interesting project. But I couldn't do it without getting to know Scott in person, I mean really getting to know him, not the 0's and 1's that appear on our screens. He might like the result a lot less than any dorky photog. For example, one of the 5 Karen masks illustrates an aspect of her that she and just about everybody else finds disturbing. The others illustrate aspects that people are more familiar with. But I can't control what Scott would show up in any mask.

But I'm open to the project. Care to fly out for a while Scott?

@ fuster:

Of course you're right. Just displacing frustration from other things onto Scott. Bad karma and all, it kinda felt good, but I know I'll regret it in anther life.

@ CK MacLeod:

I did, but even if I didn't, why?

@ fuster:

Years ago I visited my brothers camp in Maine. We took a drive to to Five Islands Lobster Co, and bad karma and all...., eating lobster literally just off the boat on the pier, for a moment, yes.

Back t the post...Good pic, expressive in a slightly deranged way that comports better with the goings on here than your former glowering visage.

Scott, grow up, it's only a photo (I mean this in the kindest, best possible way).

And then this, can the good life be selfish? Followed by an infinite regression analysis where we recognize that all the variables are dependent (including) (especially) the self which we are putatively trying to make happy.
