I have, as is my wont, read whatever has been posted since my last posting....


Mom! Rapaire has a wont! I don't have one! I want a wont! I want a wont so much that I won't shut up until I get one! It's just not fair! Rapaire has a wont and CarolC has an ilk and what do I have? I have squat! Do you know what having squat is like? It's just like not having squat! A wont would be so much more fun. Pretty please?

It is possible to have bodily fluids without having bodily functions, but it is extremely difficult to be alive while not having both. For example, respiration is a bodily function and mucus is a bodily fluid associated with respiration. If one ceases breathing, the mucus doesn't just disappear. It becomes worm food.

Wait a minute! Is this just a trick question to bring the topic of conversation back around to snot?

I have, as is my wont, read whatever has been posted since my last posting and then I went back and re-read the entire Book of Mother. Something that our own Bee-Dubya-Ell said recently is what has stood out from all of the rest of the wisdom contained herein, and it has prompted simple questions from me, a simple man.

Quotation from what's-his-name: ...bodily fluids and functions....

Questions: Your body has fluids and functions? Really? Are bodies supposed to?

However, since my posting that message last May, Brian the flea has passed on to that great fleas circus in the sky. That means the center of our lobe of the Universe has been destroyed. Since that jellyfish thing at the center of the other lobe is now all that's keeping the entire Universe from careening of into whatever a universe would careen into if it went careening, we would probably all be well-advised to stock up on batteries, sardines and Vienna sausage. Or, if you're a vegetarian, stock up on whatever vegetarians usually stock up on when facing the end of the Universe. Giok can just stock up on oatmeal.

Speak ye of serendipity! Not only did my randomly picked previous post wind up being one of my own, but it is about randomness!

I swear I did not cheat. Just ask Mom if you don't believe me. She was right there watching.

I don't have a random person of the day. I have a random monkey. His name is Excelsior and he is a garden variety Rhesus monkey. Nothing special about him. He doesn't have a random person either. He has a random flea. The flea's name is Brian. Brian doesn't have a random anything. He doesn't need it. Brian thinks the Universe revolves around him. He's correct. Well... sorta. The Universe actually "revolves" in a very complex figure-eight-like pattern. Brian is the center of one lobe. The center of the other lobe is a jellyfish-like creature named Burtfuhlsnizh who lives on a planet orbiting a star in another galaxy some five billion light-years away.

I agree with you about Freda. She and I are planning to make an expedition to that cottage I told you about in the Deneb system. You remember. It'll be so great!! Quiet, moonlit nights on the side of a golden sea, where the red rivers flow down the aqua hills...And the twin moons cast multiple shadows along the crinkly sands...like Paradise!!

I can't wait.

How doth the child of All B.S.
Improve each shining minute?
By randomly clicking history's page
To see what there is in it!
But sober, full of thought returns
Her wandering less than pleasant,
Reporting, pensive, that she learned
All BS is only Present!
There is no there, nor any "then"
Nor "they" elsewhere fulfilling.
And that's the lesson Mom intends
Bequeathed upon her chillun.
Turn to, turn to, the moment's here
And with our Mother's blessing,
Leave ancient pages to the sages
And get thee to BSing.

A mother was working in the kitchen, listening to her five-year-old son
playing with his new electric train in the living room. She heard the
train stop and her son saying,
"All of you b*****ds who want off, get the f**k off now, cause we're in
a hurry! And all of you b*****ds who are getting on, get the f**k on,
cause we're going down the tracks".
The horrified mother went in and told her son, "We don't use that kind
of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room and stay there
for TWO HOURS. When you come out, you may play with your
train,but I want you to use nice language."
Two hours later, the son came out of the bedroom and resumed playing
with his train. Soon the train stopped and the mother heard her son say,
"All passengers who are disembarking the train, please remember to take
all of your belongings with you. We thank you for travelling with us today
and hope your trip was a pleasant one."
She hears the little boy continue, "For those of you just boarding, we
ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under your seat. Remember, there is
no smoking on the train. We hope you will have a pleasant and relaxing
journey with us today."
As the mother began to smile, the child added..........
"For those of you who are pi**ed off about the TWO HOUR delay, please
see the fat b**ch in the kitchen !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Methinks I detect a note of sarcasm in yon Tweed's post. Perhaps he is insinuating that the current level of BS on this thread fails to favorably compare to that of the early days when he, himself, was an active MOABite.

Well, I agree! And I believe we can lay the blame firmly upon the shoulders of khandu, who no longer visits us often enough to keep our prattlings from devolving into talk of bodily fluids and functions. Of course, it's understandable that khandu wouldn't want to come around very often since MOABites might still refer to him as King khandu, which is not totally accurate since undergoing that surgical procedure while on vacation in Switzerland. She looks funny with that goatee, but the doctors say it'll stop growing soon and fall out of its own accord.

The only connection I know of between snot and fiddles is a running joke among my musician friends about wiping boogers on fiddle bowhair. A fiddler will come back from a smoke or bathroom break and be told that so-and-so wiped boogers on her bowhair while she was gone. (Yes, it's juvenile, but you know how silly things can get between tunes at sessions.)

That's probably the source of the fiddle-related Google ads. It's pretty scary considering that I've never mentioned it before which means that Google read my mind.

In other news, the age old dichotomy between self-sex and pair-sex has finally been, so to speak, penetrated:

"LOVERS know only too well that men usually need a "recovery period" after orgasm, and that sexual intercourse with orgasm is more satisfying than an orgasm from masturbation alone. Now scientists think the two phenomena might be linked.

Following orgasm, the hormone prolactin is released into the bloodstream in both men and women. The hormone makes us feel satiated by countering the effect of dopamine, which is released during sexual arousal.

Stuart Brody of the University of Paisley, UK, and Tillmann Krüger of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, measured blood prolactin levels in male and female volunteers who watched erotic films before engaging in masturbation or sexual intercourse to orgasm in the laboratory.

Surprisingly, after orgasm from sexual intercourse, the increase in blood prolactin levels is 400 per cent higher in both sexes compared with after orgasm from masturbation (Biological Psychology, vol 71, p 312).

This explains why orgasm from intercourse is more satisfying than masturbation, says Brody. Since elevated levels of prolactin have been linked to erectile dysfunction, this may also explain why most men need a recovery period after sex."

Yes, the Snot Hilarious was a move in early fencing. It evolved from the Snot Direct, which was used in both dueling and rapier fighting. The Snot Direct was performed thusly: while foyning from posta, perform a mezza cavazione and riposte while at the same time glissanding the left hand a la bec; withdraw and bring the foible across that part of the glave with is "a mucus"; this will cause your opponent to either become hors de combat from reverse parastalsis or provide you blade the additional "slickness" needed to perform a better glissande during your next ricavazione. The Snot Direct isn't used much anymore, primarily because of better health codes.

Snot hilarious, but snot all bad either.

(The Snot Hilarious, as Rapaire will confirm, was an early medieval fencing manuver, designed to throw the opponent off balance by laughing uproariously while blowing one's nose in his general direction. This was gradually phased out as fencing became more civilized and formalized.

There is, however, a residual but readily traceable remnant of its once-widespread usage, in the form of a sour look combined with a groaning mimic of a laugh, still found circulating in some prinitive North American sub-cultures. The gesture is evoked under certain conditions reflected by its surviving name, the "Snot Funny".

Some linguists insist that there is no direct etymological kinship between the Snot Hilarious and the Snot Funny, but these are people who need to get lives.

Man, you guys should become lawyers and open your own firm. You could call it "Wrong, Wronger and Wrongest"! Here's the true story of the derivation of the phrase "Waste not, want not":

The monetary unit of the ancient land of Mucustan was the "Tnot". I know it's a bit difficult for modern English speakers to say "Tnot" but, believe me, those old Mucustanians had no trouble at all with it.

Mucustan was situated along an active caravan route, which pretty much guaranteed that some traveler would introduce a freshly mutated variety of the common rhinovirus into the Mucustanian population on a weekly basis. As a result, all Mucustanians had perpetual head colds. As you may have gathered, the country's name was derived from its people's strong tendency toward runny noses.

Now, Mucustan was possibly the poorest country in the history of western civilization. It had absolutely no natural resources and, even if it did, it wouldn't have made any difference because all of its citizens were always down with colds and would have had to call in sick anyway. So, the Mucustanians got by in the only way they knew how, by selling the only thing they had plenty of. Yes, you guessed it, they sold mucus to traders with the caravans and the traders took it to the city where it was processed into fertilizer.

Being such an impoverished land, there was only one working scale in all of Mucustan. It belonged to an old man who lived in a shack my the caravan road. Other Mucustanians would come to him to have their mucus weighed so they wouldn't get shorted when they went off to bargain with the traders. The old man charged one Tnot for his services just as the sign on his door advertised: "Weigh Snot. One Tnot."

Thankfully, the story of the evolution of the phrase from its humble beginnings to its modern meaning is as boring as watching paint dry so I won't inflict it upon you at this time.

It was collected by members of his group, not by "Ashcan" Ashram himself. This was part of the papers of Tobias Bowdotch, who actually did the work (the same one who was eaten by the natives of Nooki-Nooki while attempting to collect folksayings there). Bowdotch, as I'm sure you're aware, is a highly respected folksaying collector, even though he was a fawning syncophant, brownnoser, and a lickspittle bootlicker -- but back then you pretty much had to be, I guess.

Anyway, his Aacr work was found among his papers at the Bodlian in 1977 and the box hadn't been opened since his death. The work is in Bowdotch's handwriting and has been authenticated by scholars in Russia, Slobovia, Scotland, England, Ireland, Canada, the US, Mongolia, Japan, and China. Even France replied, "Well, oui, but he iz not, how do you say, French, so the work is meaninglezz."

Sayid and Dunne are dead wrong.

The phrase was originally "Nyt proscusky, nyt likyina." It came from the Aacr people of Ural Mountains and was gathered in by English (not British) folksaying collectors in the late 16th Century -- Lord Ashram's group from Trinity College, to be exact.

They translated it incorrectly. "Nyt proscusky" means "no middle body bulge" ("Nyt" = "No, nothing, absence of"; "prosc" = "bulge, salient"; and "uskyor" ="middle, stomach, gut") and it was translated rather exactly.

"Nyt likyina" on the other hand literally means "No likyina." The likyina, now extinct, was a wolverine-like creature that stood two or more meters high at the shoulder and lived (like so many humans) to fight, eat, and reproduce. Because it was so active year-round it needed high-calorie food and nice, plump Aacrs were its favorite dish.

Thus, the original was a warning not to get to fat or the likyina would eat you.

The mistranslation probably came about because those not raised in the Aacrian language often mishear "likyina" as "sbrotha", which means "want, desire, lack of". The mishearing comes about because of the similarities in Aacrian between fricatives and sibilants and the "clicking sound" made by elderly Aacrs with ill-fitting dentures.

According to folk etomologists Sayid and Dunne (in thier latest best seller 'The Origin of Speaches' published by Dieper and Hyer - Baltimore, 2006) this is another case of mistaken homonymns in the english language distorting the meaning and the derivation of a folk phrase.

Their belief is that the phrase began as "Waist not, want knot"; those whose time had not slipped to their waists, thus increasing girth, had the need to tie thier belts tighter, thus wanting a knot in their belt.
