Why I shouldn't be a philosopher
"A watch without numbers is like contaceptive sex. Just as sex has the unitative and procreative ends, a watch has chronometric and . . . umm . . . aesthetic ends. A watch without numbers is aesthetically pleasing, just like contraceptive sex is unitative. However, it doesn't tell you the time, just like it's not procreative. Same thing."
