Mystery man, mystery man,
Make a mystery while you can!
Make believe it's really big!
Talk in Latin, dance a jig,
Wave your arms and have some fun;
but you ain't fooling anyone.

How do we know we don't know until you tell us?

It may be that we know, but we don't know that we know, because what we know is not what we think you are talking about that we don't know.

Or it could be that what we don't know is what you think we don't know, but if you tell us then we will know.

But If we do know, then when you tell us we can tell you we know, so you will know that we knew and you didn't have to tell us so that we would know because we new, possibly we gnu.

That's the way it always is with those who create artificial and synthetic mysteries merely to augment their imaginary sense of power over others. It gets WAY more complex than the truth ever was, and a nest of tanglefoot starts to grow around the participants until their minds are boggled and dragged into numbness. All because someone couldn't speak plainly in the first place. Isn't that a terrible waste? It's downright...anti-social.

Unless it is just humor, in which case everyone has a good laugh and goes home wondering ("What the fuck was that all about???")...

Good question, but I have to save my yearly ration of that phrase for the festival here. It get used alot, and by the performers as much as the Audience. Not surprising when you run into an all lesbian perfomance of Macbeth, being staged in japanese on the top of a double decker bus, and it seems normal, as it's August...

The "sottish" play? I don't remember that much drinking in Macbeth.

Oh, wait

Is this a flagon I see before me, its handle towards my hand?
Come! Let me clutch thee!...

Whoops!

..I have thee not, and yet I see thee still.
Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible
To feeling as to sight? or art thou but
A dagger of the mind, a false creation,
Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?
I see thee yet, in form as palpable
As this which now I draw.
Thou marshall'st me the way that I was going;
And such an instrument I was to use.
Mine eyes are made the fools o' the other senses,
Or else worth all the rest

Now o'er one half the world nature seems dead
And wicked drinks abuse the troubled sleep.
Brewcraft celebrates jovial Bacchus' offering
And the wetted sot, alarmed by his flagon showing bottom,
Howls at his watch, and with the drunkard's staggering steps
Toward the barrel moves like a goat.
Oh, thou sure and firm-set Earth, hear not my steps
Which way they wend for fear the very stones come up and meet me!

(A bung is started.)

I go, and it is done. The cup invites me.
Drink it down, Duncan, for it is a knell
That calls you to imbibe in something swell!

Full flagon five thy father lies;
Of his beers are urine made;
Those are closed that were his eyes:
Nothing of him that remains conscious
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something disgusting and drunken.
Bar-maids hourly ring his tot:
   "Ya stupid, drunken sot!"

Ver' impressive sirrah.

My considered opinion is, that if there is indeed safety in numbers, as the old wives are wont to say, then it cannot be gainsaid that our MOAB is the safest thread on the whole Mudcat.

It is a bastion of security in an endless plain of rolling significance, with scattered threads of blue genius flowing among it, and clumps of vitriol visible here and there. MOAB is the inner tower, and the donjon keep, and the calm center that holds when all else splashes and gyres in the woolying wabe.

Our postings now are ended. These our actors,        
As I foretold you, were all spirits, and              
Are melted into air, into thin air;        
And, like the baseless fabric of the Mudcat,        
The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous postings,        
The solemn songsters, the great Cafe itself,              
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve        
And, like an insubstantial pageant faded,        
Leave not a thread behind. We are such stuff        
As dreams are made on, and our little life              
Is rounded with a sleep (except, of course, for MOAB,
For such sublime artistry goes on forever).

Your borrowings, my sticky-fingered friend, grow defter with practice. The day will come when you will be able to re-post the whole MOAB, signing each entry as your own, and automate the process to boot, so you will never want for posting.

For your edification, some poetry from Hector Bluwbalz, Plagarist Laureate of Corn Creek, Idaho. These are taken from his Uncollected Works (Boise: BDM Press, 2006)

There ain't nothin'
Like my breath
To send you miles away,
Or any poetry like mine
To make you waste a day.


                -- Hector Bluwbalz, My Poetry, 1994


Because I could not stop for Mom
She kindly stopped for me,
The threads held just two of us,
And Amos and Stilly and Bunn and Bee-Dubya-Ell and Tweed and Khandu and Peace and Little Hawk and Rapaire and just all sorts of other whackos.

                -- Hector Bluwbalz, Because, 2005

I heard a fly buzz as I died,
So I hit it a good smack
And I revived
'Cause no damn fly is gonna upstage my deathbed.

" ....Too all good children over four
and under four and eighty
Be ye not over-prone to pore
On matters grave and weighty
Mayhap you'll find within this thread
Some touch of youth's rare clowning
If you will condescend to look
and not descend to frowning.
The mind of one old boy may hold
odd fancies and inviting
To guide a hand unsure and bold
that moves these days to writing
For hair once bright in days of yore
Grows grey (or somewhat slaty)
and now alas he's over four
though under four and eighty.
And so beyond this winding thread
I ponder, am I live or dead?
The thread is but a silver trail
that winds on, like a slimy snail.
And as the clock of time ticks on
I go, to sing another song.

hmmmmmmm, Rapaire is researching and qouting from play not written; substantive proof that :-space is real. Not that I really doubted the existance of L-space, but then again it is a little far fetched.

I just didn't realize he had access to the stacks at Unseen University!

Weapons-grade porridge -- definitely.

Hours in a day? No, it would be a deficit effect. A really good neutron-blast of significance, of the sort of which Rapaire is now capable, causes the humana brain to spin on its axis, requiring two to four hours to rebalance. That's why the U.N. tried to dissuade him from developing the capability. But he enrolled anyway. Now, he's degreed, a Master Operator on the Axis of Babble.

I was trying to install the necessary software on a PC at our branch today and the 8 year old son of one of the people there was drinking (powdered) lemonade. He said to me, "You don't even like sour stuff, I'll bet!"

Well, I told him that I used to but ever since my brother drank some stuff that was REALLY sour I didn't care for it any more. He asked why.

I told him that my brother drank some stuff that was SO sourt that he puckered inwardly. Puckered so much that he pucker-sucked himself right out of existence. Just a little POP! and he was gone.

The kid looked at me and said to him mother, "Mom! Is that TRUE???"

As for the linen that is made from nettle fiber, it must be handled with care; some nettles can be quite toxic, or at least painful, when grasped. There is a good product for use in dealing with them on the market called Nettlescape Explorer but it is not much in demand these days.

I saw one that had a big WWDD on it and over that was "What Would Dewey Do?"

Guess what I'm going to do?
paint (LO/MIT II)

I've been considering how to achieve the same effect that my neighbor got by spending $13,000 to put on a new roof and new decking with a reflective coating. His attic is much cooler now (so his cooling bill went way down). I'm putting on this paint to get about 75% of the heat reflected away. He reflects about 90%. I'm spending $1500 to do it.
