Though I very much doubt any of you were stupid enough to have fallen for it, I think it“s best to point out that the largest portion of blog number 312 by me was pure imagination. To the best of my knowledge Donald Trump is not about to buy out Second Life, so we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.
However, there was some information that was true in there, so I`d better clarify which bits were based on facts. We do have a Shakespeare theme in the London Sims this month – commemorating the 400th anniversary of his death, and we did have a party celebrating craziness in Sexy Brits club that night.
The theme was “Most Foolish Costume”, so, along with some pics (including this one to the left showing one of our contest winners, Ranger- who looked like he would have been at home in one of Shakespeare`s plays), here are some quotes about foolishness-many from Shakespeare, as he often depicted “The Fool” as a character in his plays.
“When we are born, we cry that we are come to this great stage of fools.”
― William Shakespeare,
Some of the guests looked, frankly, a little disturbing!
“Better a witty fool than a foolish wit.” William Shakespeare
The decorations were brilliant- and some people had come in amazing costumes!
“A fool thinks himself to be wise,
but a wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
“We’re all fools for our dreams.”
- It will do you no harm to find yourself ridiculous.
- Resign yourself to be the fool you are.
This guy (above) admitted to feeling foolish at misunderstanding the effects of crash dieting!
The final word on foolishness has to come from Betrand Russell,who wisely observed that “the whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so sure of themselves and wiser people so full of doubts.”
