I thought I'd made this plain.
Miriam had my back.
The material'd been covered.
We'd moved to the next chapter.
Yet I had to read this tonight:
Does anyone know if Marx wrote anything substantial on capital-qua-capital? (I'm not so concerned with his writing on money, although if something about it seems relevant to capital, I'd be happy to hear about that too.) If so, in what text might I find this? Thanks so much for extending your not inconsiderable expertise to suborn my project. I'll consider slapping your name in my acknowledgments page for fifteen seconds before deciding I'm a self-made man who never needed your help anyway.
All y'all who ask the obvious of experts, let me whisper some sweet somethings in your ear:
Were I an evil telepathic narcissist, you'd think yourself the dynamite of my PROJECTED FUSE.
Were I an angry giant robot, I'd evaporate your people with my devastating RAY STAR.
Were I some folk who had tell of Internets, all my YAHOOS would ASK JEEVES who OGLED the cripplingly obvious answer to your question and we would laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh at your inability to locate the most basic of source material and the gall required to broadcast your shortcomings to everyone who knows you because it would be funny.
