1. Verbal violence is even more grievous than the aggrieved realize, and for someone to say, I just ignore them,” could only mean the person who says this has sheltered themselves in some sort of snow cone, peeping out with beady eyes & telling white lies. It's best to replace an unfortunate lie with beauty or truth, rather than allow the misconception to sink even farther into the snow and freeze. Somewhere down in there lives a beating heart.

 

 

2. A person might associate Knock-knock!” with “Who's there?” In the Backtalktionary a whole ton of new associations are introduced.

“you're

—Just finish your high school.

 

 

“you're

ugly.”

“you're

—It's against my principles.

 

3. These kinds of associations make it very easy to nip verbal violence in the bud.

Too choosy. Just you?

 

12. Let's get back to the snow cone people. These are the ones who peep out from the top of their snow cones of power with beady eyes. For them everything they see has to do with your belt buckle or your shoes. They call that first impressions.

—Play tough. Isolated.

you?”

—Traveling around. Trust me.

 

15. This is where they pony up phony. It's useful to respond to phony questions with something that's slightly off-kilter. Down, down, down deep, it stirs their heart, though this might also make them angry. Now they're angry snow cones!

 

“I

What on earth? Copy that.

Just fine. Infiltrate.

17. The snow cone people are really asking for it! Notice how you can turn them around, and they're all symmetrical.

18. I can go on and on about the snow cone people, and it just so happens, I will! If you do make the mistake of arguing with a snow cone person, they start spinning ... total lies.

 

“you're

—Unbound. That's a switch.

—No idea. Persistence pays.

I'm

—Really. You shouldn't be.

—Earlier. HEALTHIER.

 

19. And to think I was on the brink of plunging into the abyss. If a depressed snow cone person asks you a depressing question, come back from the edge!

—Traveling around. Trust me.

20. Sometimes when you're dealing with these dorky things, some actual thugs come along.

“CAN'T

Don't have to do anything.

 

25. You've just walked into a get-together of some kind. Someone who's a total boor clamps onto you, relying on your upbringing, kindness or civility not to be rude. Instead, rather than grapple with whatever they're laying on you, you merrily say, A cliffhanger! and walk off.

 

“what

—Unsettled. Ask them.

A cliffhanger! My way!

26. The host walks up and says, “You need me?” and you choose from any one of the six responses on the right, next to the host's exact words. Pick one and only one of the six multiple-choice responses:

 

“you

need

—Who doesn't? Have faith.

me?”

—Let things develop. Raw.

 

27. When you find a friend, notice how it's like walking through a mirror. You don't have to work too hard. You don't even have to say anything.

 

28. The party “dominant guy” walks up and tries to put his arm over your shoulder as if he's somehow “your pal.” He says, “What's happening, chum?” Again, pick and choose a response from below as you duck away.

 

“what's

—Back in no time. Not available.

happening,

—Wind it up! You wait for it.

chum?”

—Hands off! No supervision!

 

29. The “cool cat” in dark glasses approaches. Gaze directly at their right eye, which is their “aggressive” eye. “What's the haps? How's it going? Where ya' been?” That's easy enough. Three unrelated irrational questions steaming in front of you like merde. You haven't even had a chance to breathe & you're lucky, 'cause it stinks!

 

“what's

—Back in no time. Not available.

the

—Not quite. Don't count on it.

—Before what? The rapture!

—It's perfect. Rediscovered.

—Congratulations! Far and wide.

—Sovereign space. Not far.

—Wind it up! You wait for it.

—So foolish. Underground.

 

 

30. If you ever hear yourself saying, “Congratulations!” to a snow cone person, it means they're trying to trick you into forgetting your aim. They're performing a minor form of hypnosis, having to do with distraction and misdirection. If they can get you to “the other side,” you'll find there's “never a place.” This means they've succeeded in getting you to forget what you were intending do. “Congratulations! Congratulations!”

 

“what's

—Back in no time. Not available.

going

—Congratulations! Far and wide.

on?”

—Not a place for a child.

 

31. Snow cone people put an exaggerated spin on things, flipping them back onto you. (No wonder!) Why should you accept their distorted condemnations?

32. You're at a café. A beggar interrupts you. You say, “Unsettled,” to your neighbors, then turn back to the beggar and point off to the people at the cash register, and say, “Ask them!”

 

“did

33. Someone tries to grab your attention. They won't stop. You have no idea what they're saying or what they're talking about. You say, ACETYLENE!

 

“did

—Through the star. No need.

you

—Traveling around. Trust me.

mfffgd?”

ACETYLENE! No rides!

 

34. When you're around snow cone people, you don't want to be too suffering, even when you may never, ever, ever, ever, ever connect with them in a meaningful way. From a façade of emptiness, behind a garbage gate, they plant false memories.

 

“remember

—You look me no up?

—Is that so? Enough about me!

—Who knows? Prolific.

Without suffering.

 

 

35. The snow cone people apologize when they needn't, and don't apologize when they might. For a little toddler gaping at College Madness on TV?

—No rules. It's a free-for-all.

Alarming! One week.

 

36. The Peanut Gallery! Snow cone people love to pop up from the peanut gallery! They're complete strangers. It doesn't make any sense.

—You do? Better than I do.

 

37. To defend yourself from these attacks, you have to be purposefully misunderstood. It's an aggressive posture. Try to bend the universe. You can't! Realize on a very deep level, aren't they purposefully misunderstanding you?

 

“you

—Traveling around. Trust me.

—Not sure that's so. Sparingly.

That's funny. Can't really say.

—Are you jealous? Don't hate me.

—Making progress. In a cage.

 

38. If anyone asks you about this website, it's as fruitless as having a conversation about training bras. Their unacknowledged veiled hatred leads them into “polite conversation” which is at best, tiresome, and at worst, treacherous & thoroughly unrewarding. They lie, they lie, they lie. “Killed any good animals lately?” always breaks the ice. “Any walruses or anything?” Anyway, they should be called “modesty bras.”

 

“can

Already am. It's dark.

 

39. The socially-exclusive snow cone people imagine they can measure one another's mettle. It's all outer things with an occasional glimpse into something ephemeral. Crystal meth and heroin are knocking off their kids.

 

“I

—You're on to something.

—Not sure that's so. Sparingly.

—Not in with the in-crowd.

—What we have that you don't.

—It's perfect. Rediscovered.

 

40. The working-class snow cone people have a more insidious way of being exclusive. It's the sly cats & dogs! Joy, joy, joy! “Taking a trip, man!” They hang out on sofas, giving you the appearance they're making out with your wife underneath the blanket. To keep company: “To do something relaxing that hasn't been decided.”

 

“I

—You're on to something.

—Might have been. It's gone.

—Sadly. I must be a mirror.

—Shadow dog. SIDE PONY!

 

41. The Backtalktionary can be taken as a running commentary as to what's being thought or said. Its end result should be sleepless nights as people unlock repressed memories, and in the process, release huge amounts of buried energy. Good-bye, depression! Watch out, parents!

 

“what's

—Back in no time. Not available.

—If we had time. On your own.

—Don't include me. After you!

you?”

—Traveling around. Trust me.

 

42. My car was perfectly still as I waited for the last swirl of pedestrians to clear the crosswalk for my left-hand turn. From behind, a straggler traversed alongside me and whacked the hood of my car. I flew through the air and snapped her neck. Then I hoisted her lifeless quivering body into the air and broke her back across my knee. She was watching from the corner of her eye to see what I'd do as she continued, a little skittishly, across the street.

 

[pedestrian]

—Go ahead. GO HOME!

 

 

43. “What's up?” “Is it always like this?” “Is this happening already?” Irrational questions make logical people furious, though vague forms of speech often make perfect sense within an erotic framework. Logic infused with sex. Who could have possibly dived to those depths?

 

“what's

—Back in no time. Not available.

—Rip it! A red thumb.

 

 

“is

All at once! Wearing a mask.

 

44. Phony people are motivated by powerful feelings which remain in the dark. Those feelings may be rooted in fear, anger, hatred, or surprise, all of which may be amplified by a wild imagination. Phony people misconceive the significance of things, or the meaning of things. They try to offload their feelings onto you, by making you feel frightened, angry, critical, or insignificant. They're the snow cone people, bigger than life! And you're nothing.

 

“are

—Play tough. Isolated.

you

—Traveling around. Trust me.

—Before what? The rapture!

me?”

—Let things develop. Raw.

 

 

45. Office Politics is done with praise (providing key information) and shame (actually withholding resources). It's called Power Sharing. In the same way language can become infused with sexuality, the stirile nature of off-putting small talk, delivered in a low-key or offhand manner, can also be infused with acceptance or dismissal. All of which contribute to puncturing the innocent joy of reason, wonder, beauty and awe. What a waste.

—Oh, yeah? Says you!

 

 

46. At some rudimentary level, the uneducated, illiterate, illogical pronouncements of some people shouldn't shake your tree too much. If you are well versed in logic, and innocently say, “This is one of the most beautiful avenues I've ever seen,” and the other person says, You never been here? you should be proud you can learn to say something right back, as a means to experience simple humanity without violations of structures in logic getting in the way. The beauty of what you perceive in the outside physical world should be able to stand on its own. Shouldn't a person be able to tolerate a quantum leap?

 

“you

I can't do that very well.

 

 

48. When you're out and about, just remember a psycho is simply an angry psychic, and that underneath all that bluster, they're just a snow cone person with a rooftop antenna. It's best to avoid entanglements. At rock bottom, always come back to intimidation. They're trying to intimidate you. Same as a mosquito.

 

“is

Who knows? Prolific.

 

 

49. When someone turns on you, to puncture your dreams, start an argument, or break up with you, learn how to switch sides in an instant. No matter what you think, feel or believe, nip things in the bud by saying, “You're on to something!” Then do less. Simply do less.

 

“I

—I know what to do. Do less.

 

 

50. Pumped-up snow cone people often pretend something's wrong with you when you tell them you once lived near Walden Pond in Massachusetts. Try not to get pumped-up youself! Just lie low. Let them float off into outer space all by themselves, where they belong.

 

“that's

Not quite. Don't count on it.

51. How did I ever get this far without mentioning the friendly insult? You can make a lot of money, can't you? Even better, “Hitch your wagon to a star.”

 

“embarrass

Not yet. My place is here.

 

 

52. In olden days, if someone peeked into your heart, or into one of your memories, you'd imagine witchcraft. I don't think so! I just think it's my snow cone dentist, who can always see when I have a little too much more money than I know what to do with. There I was, laid out in his chair, all helpless, with him peering deep, deep into my brain! —Aha! He's got a windfall, and I'm taking it! I saw him thinking. “A-aaa-ah” is all I said.

 

“I

53. What do puppies, kids, and friends have in common? Play with! That's Plan A. This does not mean anyone can instantly transform a bully or a snow cone person into a close friend, you may simply want to get away from them! That's Plan B. Then, for Plan C, always remember there's an entity inside you that's always inside you. It's the closest of friends. Look for this entity! Nourish it. Wait a week, continually attaching yourself to it best you can, and it will grow.

 

“can't
