I Pay Attention To A Frenchman..

The continuing sagas of Roger Caillois and his empty bed.

Someape commented that as a teacher Roger would have access to a multitude of young impressionable girls, and contrary to my conclusion probably did get some. Certainly, except he taught at a University, ergo he dealt overwhelmingly with young impressionable boys.

So his bed stands empty. (assuming certain conditions)

It's well known that games are won by the better players, or 'the winners'. Contrary to some belief systems, the winner is not the person who is best prepared, or has worked the hardest, or followed most piously in the footsteps of Christ, or has the most 'common sense'.

Common sense? Common sense my arse.

Common sense says "don't do anything you may regret at some point in the future". Uncommon sense says "don't get caught".

Common sense says "we don't *really* need cars, mobile phones, TVs, international banking, coronation street, or icecream".

Uncommon sense says "I'll have it, on the 849 month payment plan, with 14 inch spinners and those lights that make it look like you're driving a UFO".

Anyway, Roger was clever. He recognised the weight lies not with the 'rules of the game' but with the 'roles of the play'. For example, my Dad is a football referee. When someone's cheek gets studded off of their face, his job is not to refer the offending player to a clause in the FIFA regulations. No, his job is to wave a piece of red card and shout "Get off the ****ing field mate!!".

The roles do the work, while the rules are lazy cunts. Roger identified these roles of play, and I'm quite certain that to better understand these roles is to better understand how to get a woman to sleep with me.

The next post will examine the roles.

I pay attention to a Frenchman to get a woman to sleep with me!

So was Roger a smart human after all, in spite of his empty bed? Make up your mind Dick.

I see Roger as a bit like the Richard character (the funny one) from Ally McBeal. Though the cases he prepares are based on sound reason, he always fails at the final prosecution.

In fact, Richard is somewhat of a hero to me.
