hell is other people: daddynietzsche
 throwback to that time in my existentialism class
 where the professor asked who thinks hell is
 other people' and half the class slowly and meekly
 put their hand up
 then the prof was like ..i mean who originally said it
 annabellioncourt
 there are some posts that sound utterly made up
 for the joke or for the notes, but this one I whole
 heartedly believe
 kurloz38
 Sounds right to me..

 That quote is amazing to me in that it's quoted
 completely accurately and yet in a way that means
 something completely different from what it
 meant in context.
 Sartre was claiming that Hell was other people. He
 was not claiming that other people were hell.)
