Who is Excelsior?

I am Excelsior. A college student, with views from a combination of different philosophical positions. I enjoy developing my views and ideas pertaining to philosophy and criticising others. I'm more than free to talk about anything from the divine to the truly absurd.

"I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End." - Revelation 22:13

Are Friends Electric?

"Fanatic ethnic, religious or national identifications are a little difficult to support, when we see our planet as a fragile blue crescent, fading to become an inconspicuous point of light against the bastion and citadel of the stars."

Go to Moscow if you want to find a woman ... If you have a career you will not have a hard time...don't through mail order services... it's not hard to find an 8-10 range woman who really wants a decent guy...don't be a dickwad...
Slavic women are extremely attractive even when they are not models... they aren't as tough around men and tend to value family life...
it depends on your taste..

Have you noticed the amount of bottles in the hands of the Irish ethnic group?


I have yet to commit crimes or get arrested even though I have Native America genes... Although, my Irish genes make me emotionally erratic apparently.

They also made the people in my family great engineers. I wonder if there is anything to some of the stereotypes....

Some Jewish temples have used Swastikas...

Swastikas are multicultural and were already common around the world well before WWII..
