    Default What Happens When You Distill Schadenfreude?

    I mean, you distill beer and get whiskey, you distill wine and you get brandy . . .

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Tune by Beethoven; words just slightly different to Schiller’s:

    Schadenfreude, Schadenfreude, Tochter aus Elysium…

    So when Delta, which is already selecting Fascist voters, morphs into something that is 30% fatal just in time for the mid-terms, will it be polite to notice?

    I don't notice much when I'm consuming distillates. Comfortably numb, perhaps?

    They are self selecting. The virus don't care one way or t'other. Darwinism, not schadenfreud.

    1) Darwinism is not an emotional response to something, as is schadenfreude. As far as I am aware.

    2) The virus may not be aware that it is selecting Morons, but . . .

    3) Answer the question!!!!
