Saw it, was kinda pondering over it

Been loosely following the story. Schaeffer was truly a rising star there for a while. Check out his early talks on Youtube (at least they used to be up there) and see one of the most dynamic and charismatic young speakers the movement has come up with to date. So composed and even witty! Bouncy and fun! I used to think bygods, we have a younger version of Badnarik here!

And then these scrapes with the law and anger came into it. From afar it seemed I could perceive this one massive toilet bowl filling to the rim up in Alaska and then circling down.

Paranoid delusions and schizophrenia? Perhaps but the once statement "Well, I put myself here" is PURE Schaeffer Cox as far as I can tell. That sort of plain-talking responsibility taking is characteristic of the man that attracted so many of us to begin with.

What can we learn from this? TONS. Hopefully in a day or so it will crystallise in my mind and you get another long, boring Smudge post.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.
