"The cultural construction of folly, of course, is dependent upon a society's ideas about what constitutes earnestness, seriousness, responsibility, and dignity. To reverse these traits is to create folly - the work of the fool....Wherever humans have wandered, the fool, a perennial transcultural type, is found performing, an entertaining oddity to her audience. The fool's appearance sets up a social tension of ambivalence; the boundaries of propriety blur, fantasy and reality oscillate, and one's cognitive control over the environment recedes. As Welsford notes, 'The Fool by his mere presence dissolves events, evades issues, and throws doubt on the finality of fact.'"

Performance Humor in the South Pacific

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
