Did you know Socrates hated the idea of writing thoughts down? He said it weakened the memory…made us lazy.
That's why he never wrote a book. The only way we know about him is through his student Plato's writing. Strange, huh?
Yeah it is.
Chicky chicky blam boom, ba da da ba da, ba da da ba da. Socrates! Oh yeah! Chicky boom. Chicky boom. Chicky booooooooooooom.
He's supposed to put down some bass.
Reeeeeeeeeeee, gabba gup, gabba gup, Socrates was a lazy ass rawwwwwwwram! TONK!
Do you ever want to just hug people? I mean, like a complete stranger. Just hug the shit out of him.
Dah da da, dah da da, chicky chicky pow pow, chicky chicky pow pow, do do ma, do do ma! Socrates was a bad bad boy, all he wanted was a hug but... tough luck! Oh yeah! Tough...Luuuuck!
Do you think God made us? Or do you think we came from fish?
Fish were first, then monkeys, then us, if you're going that way.
According to Carl Sagan.
BLAM BOMB! Shriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii tat a, gabba gup. Socrates, he's gonna check those fish, oh yeah! Oh yeah! Gonna check and see if we were once a dish! Oh yeah!

That was Lisa all right. The video quality was surprisingly high-quality, Sledge. Looks like you took a lot of time setting things up. Good touch using the Van Gogh in the background…you need more tissues, Trash?
