The man I strive to be
So actually, the full story one why Diogenes plucked the chicken and shouted that it was a man is because either Plato or Socrates asserted that a man was a being without feathers who stood upright on two legs. The guy was easily one of the most sarcastic people in all of history. Also, he really did sleep in a barrel, Alexander the Great actually moved out of the way when he was told that he was blocking Diogenes light, and dogs loved him so much that he was almost constantly surrounded by them.
I know the name of this philosopher, but I can't remember it. It's funny either way.
@PunsAndGlory, it's Disogenies the cynic, and it was alexander the frikin great who he demanded to get out of his light.
@Emperor Mango, That's right. I'm not familiar with some of the other philosophers. We've just been reading Aristotle and Plato and now we're on Marcus Aurelius.
@Emperor Mango, and best of all, Alexander the Great frickin LOVED him.
@Emperor Mango, no one knows how he actually died but I like the theory that he got tired of living, so he just stopped breathing.
@PunsAndGlory, plato happens to be the other guy in the meme 😬
@Emperor Mango, I'm so happy there are other people interest in philosophy here
@Emperor Mango, Did you spell his name incorrectly or have I been saying it wrong this whole time?
@Jdrawer, I most likely spelled it incorrectly, I just know the pronunciation as DIE-saw-jun-ees. I am also to lazy to google and fix it.
*but are we gunna?
