life-wisdom from Dr. V

Advice from Dr. V: 

And as the years roll on, and the fire down below subsides, certain insights become possible [that] were not possible before. The young man's dong is a magic wand that conjures and weaves the web of maya the better to ensnare him and keep him tied to the transient. The old man who makes good use of his old age sloughs off the illusions of earthly love that were always more hydraulic in provenance than pneumatic. He now has a good shot at moral and spiritual improvement. But will he take it?

Or will he essay to prolong his dong and with it the web of lies it weaves? Nothing is more pitiful than the decrepit oldster who keeps himself jacked up Hefner-style.

In case you're confused, Dr. V is using the term pneumatic to mean "spiritual," from the Greek pneuma, meaning "breath" or "spirit." That's the contrast with hydraulic.

I can see one friend of mine, who lives a very hydraulic, attached-to-the-transient life, leaning out a window, like Homer Simpson, and shouting, "Nerrrrrrrrd!" at Dr. V. I'm pretty sure this friend would rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. The sinners have much more fun: you know that only the good die young.
