Buck up Ted your flustration is only due to knowing enough to care.

If ya wanna be high be high if ya wanna be low be low, here's a trillion ways to go you know that there are. If ya wanna be rich be rich, jus follow the Bush family lead into Paraquay investments where the next big housing mortgage bubble is being created by International banks by expanding credit in ways that you saw in the US 7 years ago.

We have yet to reach the post number corresponding to my Zip Code. However, it looks like my original estimate that I would be on the road before that number was reached was a bit inaccurate. I'm not leaving 'til Thursaday morning, and it may well be reached sometime tomorrow.

Shame is the opposite in every way to Stilly and I strongly doubt that she would be attracted in any way, except perhaps pity -- and then she'd take a firehose to him.'

Shame is so unhygienic that every time he comes home his mother runs out from under the porch, bites his tail, and has the heaves for an hour.

Indeed, including the fact that almost all women are, to one degree or another, appealing. Not so Shane. And most women would like to see good things happen and are willing to help make them occur. Not so Shane. Women, by and large, honor human feelings, spirituality, intent, good will, courage, accomplishment, sensitivity, a sense of aesthetics, and the far horizons of the soul. Not so Shane.

Women seem, to some degree, to subscribe to every human talent and virtue known to humanity. Not so Shane. Women strive to communicate, to be understood, and to understand others. Not so Shane. Women strive to become better, regret their sins or offenses against others, prefer to make things right and earn forgiveness, and to forgive those who err against them, generally. Not so Shane.

Women in general seek understanding and strive to use their intelligence to find a good path. Not so Shane. Women tend to modesty and are soft-spoken, prefer not to brag, and let their actions speak louder than their words. Not so Shane.

I think you're onto something here, Little Hawk.

Your summary of Shane's salient and defining character features, Amos, is thorough, apt, and as far as I can see, totally on the mark. ;-) He has all the qualities necessary to become a major heavy metal or grundge rock star...except musical talent.

Everything has its opposite. Opposites manifest a spectrum of polarities between them. Humans have varying degrees of strength, intelligence & wisdom. Harmony is achieved when an equilibrium is maintained between opposing forces. Though truth is murky, if you look objectively the purpose of Shane, and his brood can be seen.

Old Ed stood high on the tops'l yahd
A-staring into the sun.
To see the way he stared, we feared
Some damage might be done.
And sure enough, when his watch was done,
An' he shinnied down the stay,
He started spouting Marxist thoughts
In a tatterdemalion way.

Now Little Hawk, on the foc's'le head,
Was watching in the gloom
As the phosphorescent breakers passed,
An' he dreamed he was in his room.
He fancied seeing shabby types
Of simian and Canuck.
He dreamed them up and gave them names,
And his fancies kinda stuck.
For when old Hawk came off that watch
He swore his chums were there!
So we tied him up and stowed him below,
Just to give him a change of air.

And sure, it was a patchwork gang
We'd sailed with from the docks,
With prim Rapaire, and wild-eyed Bruce,
And Still and Jane in frocks.
But we didn't care if we all seemed odd,
We were glad to be under weigh.
For we heard the call of the Mother's voice
Singing "Thirty-three of Kay!"

Great stuff, Amos! Bravo! Well writ!

Now, Ed....I propose that Amos does have an opposite. His opposite would be a very short, hairy, swarthy man from New Jersey; a man so inarticulate that his entire vocabulary consisted of 35 different words and phrases, most of them obscene; a man who drank heavily and committed random acts of violence, specially upon females; a man who valued action above words and set out to prove it by robbing banks and convenience stores; a man who would not vote for the Democrats unless you paid him to and paid him well; a man who listens to Rush Limbaugh and hangs on his every word; a man who would never waste time trying to impress people with his intellectual gifts and verbal skills...because he doesn't have any! ;-)

There is Amos's opposite. Aren't we glad we don't know him?

BTW, Rapaire is attempting to articulate the legal principle de minimis non curat lex. The law does not concern itself with trifles (such as the trifle of misspelling minimis). This is a time-honored truism of law that teaches that if consequences are too trivial to worry about, a technical violation of a law is of no concern.

If Amos and this imaginary opposite reproduced ... would there be negative results, (minus the potential pleasure or pain, that is).

Q: I need a Christmas gift for Amos, one who "has it all". Any ideas?
A: Give him the opposite, someone who don't have anything at all.

I don't think they would be able to reproduce, Ed, if they were both males. Agreed? If, hower, we found a female who had all those same opposite characteristics to Amos, then the possibility of reproduction between her and Amos would be there...theoretically.

I shudder to think what results that possibility might produce if conception did occur.

Now Chinga...she is opposite to Amos in many ways. But they seem to share a mutual disapproval of Chongo, and that would invalidate Chinga as Amos's true opposite.

Monkeys, I think, are animals of which one can tire very quickly on a social level. Entertaining as they at first appear and comely as they unquestionably remain, in fur and form, there is about their features a malevolent glare, a greed and a message of selfishness that puts one in mind of dreadfully spoilt infants. There is a message in their faces that admits no possibility of affection on their part. They get attached to people, and scratch those who come close to their favourites, but you always sense that it comes from egotism not devotion. In our world, that is: that's why they make appalling pets. In their own world they are magnificent. [...] I suppose if you run a lodge in the middle of the jungle tame parrots and monkeys are more or less de rigueur. It worked on me: and to call them tame was to insult them. They were wild but chose to live hard by the lodge.

Monkeys are very nice, sociable animals. Except for their habit flinging their excrement at others. Were it not for this (and their habit of masturbating in public) they would be as welcome at a dinner party as any Senator.

These is the only things that separate Shame from a monkey: monkeys have better aim, whereas Shame flings it around, fingerpaints with it, and then brags about how he can out drink, out last, out eat, and out fight any twenty monkeys. This is true, except that he confuses monkeys with bananas.

Amos, I am getting a clearer idea all the time of who Chinga is, the bizarre thoughts that pass through her twisted little brain, the nasty mindgames she engages in... Horrifying! It all reminds me of this woman I went out with in the early 90's. The fact that I survived the experience speaks volumes for my basic resilience in the face of adversity.
