Meat has a particular intricate structure that makes it meat. One of the molecules in a cut of tenderloin on your plate might have once been part of the eyeball of an ancient Persian king, but that doesnt mean you are a cannibal. On a molecular and atomic level, everything gets recycled in zillions of different directions and ways.

If only I didn't have to struggle with Aristotle right now...  

I mean - cool - the progress in human thought is really welcome, but the amount of information and unnecessary details in the texts is huge.  On top of that, writing an essay regarding his Politics is going to be a pain in the ass.

Blizz I guess you're looking for "Bobo" term. It's contraction of "bourgeois" and "bohème", usually pejorative.

No "Galaad" option on the poll, talk about being a noob.

No, what he described is the Haute Boheme and according to The Urban Dictionary, a Bobo is “a Korean dude who muds like a maniac and farts uncontrollably.” Now, that is the superior life!


Dude, I'm French and I live in the capital. Literally no-one says "Haute Bohème" to describe what Blizz meant. The appellation is "Bo-bo", it's french slang and very commonly used, not the same as in what you find in Urban dictionary.

Lol, I was joking about the Bobo part, of course. I'm sure it means what you say it means in 2018's France, I just wanted to learn more about the story of the word, (because, there is no knowing everything, grasshopper fred, but the ever growing desire to learn more. ), stumbled upon "the Korean guy with the uncontrollable fart" thing and that just wasn't something you can stop yourself from joking.

But I'm also quite sure the term Blizz couldn't instantly remember is the historical one, because since we're not from France, we both learned it from books, not in the streets of 2018's Paris. And that is:

This use of the word bohemian first appeared in the English language in the nineteenth century to describe the non-traditional lifestyles of marginalized and impoverished artists, writers, journalists, musicians, and actors in major European cities.[1]

Bohemians were associated with unorthodox or anti-establishment political or social viewpoints, which often were expressed through free love, frugality, and—in some cases—voluntary poverty. A more economically privileged, wealthy, or even aristocratic bohemian circle is sometimes referred to as haute bohème[2] (literally "high Bohemia").[3]


Let me put it this way, in a book named "The Bohemians" translated in Turkish, the term "haute boheme" appears as it is, in italics, it's that terminological by now.

Fair enough, I looked it myself too but it's quite ironic I didn't know it being French myself. But I'm unsure about how much credit I give to foreigners about French language, and that wikipedia source (SeaDict online dictionary) is down.

@Galaad

I will have you know, son, that I took 2 French classes during undergrad that I occasionally showed up for. Your powers of French are inconsequential to my own.
