Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
From: Bee-dubya-ell

There has been discussion, in this thread as well as others, as to exactly what this MOAB is. Is it a movement? Is it a religion? Is it a hallucination? Whatever it is, it seems to have taken on a life of its own. Well, anything that has a life of its own must be alive, right? And anything that's alive that spends as much time on the Mudcat as the MOAB does really should be a member of the forum.

Therefore, on this, the first anniversary of the MOAB's birth, I have given her the gift of a Mudcat membership in her own name. Yes, our Mother is no longer just a thread! She is now a bona fide Mudcatter with her own screen name and she will be posting here soon! Isn't it exciting?

Now, since MOAB belongs to all of us, it is not appropriate that her membership be hogged by one jerkoff southern redneck asshole. It should be spread among all the assholes of various stripes that hang out here. But, I'm not gonna just post the password that can allow anyone to pretend he or she is MOAB. That would be inviting chaos, anarchy and the hijacking of MOAB's identity by assholes who are not MOABites (as opposed to assholes who are).   So, if you will send me a PM requesting it, I will let you know what MOAB's password is so that you can log her on from your computer.

The potential for BS of a totally new ilk lies before us!

Some health tips for those who live long enough to get from one end of this thread to another.

Walking can add minutes to your life. This enables you at 85 years old to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at $5000 per month.

My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was 60. Now she's 97 years old and we don't know where the hell she is.

The only reason I would take up exercising is so that I could hear heavy breathing again.

I joined a health club last year, spent about 400 bucks. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to go there.

I have to exercise early in the morning before my brain figures out what I'm doing.

I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.

If you are going to try cross-country skiing, start with a small country.


And last but not least:    I don't exercise because it makes the ice jump right out of my glass.
   

good health!

Addicted to MUD
The net is up - so you're not home;
Your mind - is not your own.
Your client starts - your body wakes;
One more connect - is what it takes.
You can't sleep - you can't eat;
There's no doubt - you're in deep.
Your fingers ache - but you don't heed;
Another mud - is all you need.
> Whoa...
You like to think that you're immune to the stuff;
Oh yeah?
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough;
You know you're gonna have to face it:
You're addicted to mud.

You see the words - but you can't read;
Your modem's at - a different speed.
Your fingers type - in double time;
One more connect - and you'll feel fine!
A one track mind - you can't be saved;
Your mudding life - is all you crave.
And if there's room - on your machine,
You'll run your own - Mud Supreme!

Whoa...
You like to think that you're immune to the stuff;
Oh yeah?
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough;
You know you're gonna have to face it:
You're addicted to mud.

Might as well face it you're addicted to mud.
Might as well face it you're addicted to mud.
Might as well face it you're addicted to mud.
Might as well face it you're addicted to mud.

Might as well face it you're addicted to mud.

(instrumental)

>
The net is up - so you're not home;
Your will - is not your own.
Your client starts - the load climbs;
Another mud - and you'll be mine!

Whoa...
You like to think that you're immune to the stuff;
Oh yeah?
It's closer to the truth to say you can't get enough;
You know you're gonna have to face it:
You're addicted to mud.

Then hush your sobs, my pretty little miss
and dry those oily tears
You know that robots can't afford to cry
it surely rusts their gears
You must give up all these thoughts of love
though it leaves you an aching void
Give up this Univac Mark II
and find you an XM-I humanoid

Then each to each on wavelengths ultra high
They whispered secretly
Of transistors and gears and shifts
and cams and printed circuitry
So time passed for the two of them
in the place where they were employed
For he was a univac mark II

She gazed at him and a tear was in her eye
to her love was denied
Her lover stood four mighty stories high
and he was one block wide
How could they do the impossible
how could their love be enjoyed
For he was a univac mark II

Hark to my tale of a very tragic love
so grievous to relate
Two star-crossed lovers with the perfect love
they could not consummate
Their love was constant, their love was true
but of passion it was devoid
For he was a univac mark II
and she was an XF-I humanoid

Love? Well, love is great, but it don't pay the bills. If a dame tells ya she loves ya, she might mean it and she might not. Even if she does think she means it she might not know her own mind. Some of these dames, and some fellas too, they just want to fall in love all the time cos they get ideas outa them romantic novels and movies. That don't mean it's all hearts and flowers once the first thrill wears off. It ain't easy to find a love that lasts for life, but it's easy to find a ball and chain that does...know what I mean? Hot kisses can be great, but I say, keep a cool head and make sure ya got a back door or a window handy in case ya gotta 23 skidoo. Don't be a sap. A loaded gun is way better insurance than a fistful of posies and a valentine.

And don't never trust no she-gorilla that wears a fake pearl necklace...

Those Google people are so snooty anyway. I did a search on "Help! I've got my head up Bee-dubya-ell's ass!", and they asked me if maybe I meant, "Help! I've got my head up Bee-dubya-bell's ass!".

Of course "head up my ass" (but without the quotation marks) will get a zillion results. Even "Help! I've got my head up my own ass!" without the quotation marks gets a buncha results. But "Help! I've got my head up my own ass!" with quotation marks, meaning I'm looking for that exact phrase, gets zero. By the way, "Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!" (with quotation marks) gets 1760 results.

And the bit about navigating a ship with a celery stalk, that's easy if you give the celery stalk a little extra mass by stuffing it with brie and peanut butter.

In most matters, I think I might tend to agree with you, Bee-dubya-ell. But not higgledy piggledys. They are a highly refined art form, and if you don't follow the rules, it's just not the same. To write higgledy piggledys without following the rules would be like figure skating with hockey skates or eating brie with peanut butter or trying to navagate a ship using a stalk of celery instead of a compass or building a guitar using cement or playing polkas on the accordion or filming a love scene between Alan Rickman and Madeline Albright or making toilet paper out of silk or putting all of your favorite books in the crawl space under your porch or painting a moustache on this or talking about celebrity gossip in the MOAB or letting Sylvester Stallone use your McGill or showing your mother your space poetry or... well, you know what I'm trying to say.

Well, my yard is just under a meter (or a metre) -- 36 inches, to be precise. It's pretty linear, too.

HOWever! my back lawn (back garden) is a pretty good size, maybe a quarter acre or so. And the house is a decent size, considering that there is a full bath, kitchen, living-type room, and bedroom we don't even use. And the golf course out beyond the back fence enhances the prospects for fun 'n' games with the golfers.

Ergo, the 26 x 26 foot family room in the basement (which opens onto a patio) and the deck above off the dining room -- well, we could probably sleep twenty or thirty folks in sleeping bags where were friends with each other or willing to become so. Parking might be a problem, even with the RV pad and the circular driveway, but what the hey! that's what streets are for.

So, if you're looking for a festival venue....

We have now discussed about all the metre I can measure up to, and I would like to address the focus of BS to yards, instead. Mine is smallish, unlike some of my more acreage-gifted colleagues, no more than 60 by 40 feet and some of that is patio. There's a tall hedge and a stone wall I had done, and a few nice trees and that's all! But it sure keeps life simple. We have just finished the annual trimming and hauled of a dozen big bags full to the dump.

It would be a great place for six or ten Catters to hang out and plunk and sing.

We have done it with six (not all of them catters, though) and it worked great.

The benefit of this scheme being that I don't have to abstain from Guinness if I am already tuh home, as long as I can still grin at the guests!

Hi folks! I just wanted to stop by and dispell the rumor that we neutrinos never interact with anything. See? I'm interacting with you folks right now, and I'm having a jolly good time doing it. It's not that we can't interact, it's just that we find most things so boring that we choose not to interact with them. Like in that post above where it says "...the average neutrino interacts with ordinary matter so weakly that it could go through about 50 light years of solid lead without being stopped...." Well, would you interact with lead if you had a choice? Hell no! Lead is boring! I mean here you are cruisin' through 50 light years of lead and all of a sudden a couple of particles just look so interesting that you wanna stop and have a chat? No way! You seen one lead atom, you seen 'em all. But, hey, you Mudcattin' folks are different! You cats are cool! Not boring at all.

Well, I'd like to stay and chat some more but I'm afraid that if I stay in one place too long I'll turn into a positron or a lamda particle or something so I need to get moving. But, hey, I'll be back as soon as I get a chance. See ya!

Or the last two could be:

And then repeat one of the two variations in the second stanza.

A rythm of "DA dum dum" twice in one line is what makes them double dactyls.
