If You Were An English Grad Student

you would get to read things like this...

"Vision in this technological feast becomes unregulated gluttony; all seems not just mythically about the god trick of seeing everything from nowhere, but to have put the myth into ordinary practice. And like the god trick, this eye fucks the world to make techno-monsters. Zoe Sofoulis calls this the cannibaleye of masculinist extra-terrestrial projects for excremental second-birthing."--Donna Haraway "Situated Knowledges"

Aren't you jealous?

Ahem, well, obviously the mythological nowhere is juxtaposed against a necro-post-modernist contextual frame, which renders the excremental second-birthing merely an artifact of the Dodecahedron of Justice's metaphorical mating with the idea of Sunday bacon.

OB-viously.

(Seriously, GOOD GOD. Can you sleep at night? ;) Just that little sample, and I already know I'll be having nightmares about cannibal eyes!)
