Overheard in LA

Table full of high-maintenance West Side bitches at La Salsa. You know the type; immaculately done up, thin, heavily made up, beautiful, carefully done hair, perpetually sour expression on their joyless faces due to spending all their time at the gym or shopping, rather than enjoying any of life's non-materialistic pleasures. One says to the other; "Dating sucks. The other night I went on a date, and the guy I'm out with asks me "What do you think of exisistentialism?" What a loser. Like I've cared about that since freshmen philosophy. Hello?"

She was right about one thing - dating her would suck.

If a date asked me that, I'd probably think he was a pretentious schmuck. Sartre and Camus were both pretentious fucks.

So, you have an opinion? ;)

Yeah you're right. People who do the most convincing possible impression of sub-literate whores or knuckle-dragging proto-simians are substantially more sexually appealing.

I have to agree with ARYA and ALICIA. Trying way too hard is NOT sexy. And that's too cerebral a question for LA, where the average Joe (or Joan, as the case may be) last cracked a book when Hilary's husband was president. And that was, like, because they TOTALLY had an exam.

So, let me get this straight - someone who asks about philosophy is, by the very fact of being in LA, obviously NOT legitimately interested, couldn't possibly just be seeing if his date actually knows what existentialism is, and MUST necessarily just be a pretentious asshole who is trying too hard? And you can tell that, with perfect certainty, out of context and third hand?

I don't buy it.

There aren't going to be many guys in LA that legitimately want to talk about philisophical issues out of the blue like that, no. As an offshoot of a conversation, perhaps, but not out of the blue. That's all I'm saying. THAT is trying too hard.

And I didn't call 'him' an asshole.

But I'm inferring from your indignant stance that you assume I was agreeing with the Troll. Not the case, my love. I'm impressed she remembered all six syllables.
