Fun Stuff

From Wittgenstein (1993)
Ludwig Wittgenstein: [performing a V-sign with his fingers] What does this mean?
Lady Ottoline Morrell: It's a gesture of contempt.
Ludwig Wittgenstein: A cyclist did this to me as I was crossing the road. I decided then and there to kill myself.
Lady Ottoline Morrell: Are you coming to the Palladium with us this evening?
Ludwig Wittgenstein: What's the logical structure of this gesture? It doesn't have one! That means I've spent most of my life groping down a blind alley.
Bertrand Russell: Isn't it rather an over-reaction to kill yourself because somebody gives you a V-sign?
Ludwig Wittgenstein: Philosophy hunts for the essence of meaning. There's no such thing. There's no such thing! Just the way we do things in everyday life and things like that.
[performing V-sign]
Ludwig Wittgenstein: The college porter knows that.
Lady Ottoline Morrell: Is that what you're planning to do for the rest of your life?
