    Default How did StyleZeitgeist start?

    As I am relatively new here I have been wondering about the history of this forum - how/why did this website start and who started it.
    I am very thankful for the person/ people who instigated this as it has reinvigorated my love of fashion.
    Please move to appropriate section if I have entered this in the wrong place.

    True, but there are competing accounts:

    i have no idea how it started so i won't speculate on fausts passions and personal motivations but in a practical sense it feels like it was created as a rejection to TFS and the like. an alternative i guess.

    this is a total guess so no offense intended

    Forget Carpe Diem clogs, it's all about the grass stuffed CCP one piece leather shoe. Buried for 5,500 years for extra distressed goodness.

    dunno about ccp, looks a little like a linea prototype
    One wonders where it will end, when everything has become gay.

    You know how when you write LOL, one rarely is literally LOLing? (Just on the inside?) Well, I just had an amazing, classy moment where I was spraying tea all over my monitor, after which I had to rest my forehead on the table so that I would not choke.

    I would love a parody thread.

    also, i can't believe that Acephalé has that engraved stuff on the LoTR ring as his signature...

    Acéphale,

    I'm sorry. That was a terrible joke on my part.

    Of course, I do know that the phrase is important to the foundation of Platonism, in particular to the understanding of what Plato meant by the "Platonic ideal" and his theories of truth, abstraction and forms.

    Rest assured, I mean no harm. The whole thread was so funny, I couldn't resist.

    Well, that's not back tracking at all.

    Now, I wouldn't finally register just to point something like that out, but since the rest of your post represents what I see as a fairly fundamental misunderstanding of what's occurring in the quote you identified as lord of the rings (and Ancient Greek philosophy is fairly close to my heart), I just had to say something. No, you weren't making a joke. Plato, through Socrates, isn't exactly talking about the Forms or Absolute Truth, its from the Apology, as was pointed out, and Socrates is defending his teaching style from accusation by the people of Athens. As in, he explains that he can't be teaching the youth poisonous ideas if he isn't teaching anything in the first place. He says he knows nothing so he asks questions, requiring clarification of the ideas postulated by those he's talking to, until etc and so forth, basic socratic dialectic shit.

    And yeah, maybe not the most important thing to comment on, but jeez just admit that you mistook greek text for lotr or something. I don't even doubt you've heard the quote before but that's a lot more graceful than a hamfisted, "no guys i totally know whats going on I was just joking when I said something that wasn't even funny in the context of the thread!"
