Actually, I don't think the ban was for anything I said or did. One of the admins seems to have a bit of a Napolean Complex and a great dislike for America Online. It apparently gives him a thrill to ban AOL members. It was implied that I could still play, but not from my current IP address. What a crock! As if anyone would want to continue contributing to a site where admins can behave in such a juvenile fashion?

I think it means "I love you". It might mean "I love dick", but I suspect the former.

today in 1940 the first social security check was issued to a Ida Mae fuller of Vermont.

1945 - Private Eddie Slovik became the only U.S. soldier since the Civil War to be executed for disertion.

2001 - A court in the Netherlands convicted one Libyan and acquitted a second in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.

As we said tonight, "Touche, mon vieux! Vous etes mort, Mort!" A quick counter-sixte, a short extension, a touch on the bicep, a small slash to cut the muscle, the drop of the epee, the recovery, the lunge,the blade passing through the lung, the pinkish froth of the wound and on the lips, the withdrawal, the final salute, the collapse, the surgeons, the whispered request for "Mercy," the miserecord through the jacket and into the heart.... Ah, another night at the Fencing Club!

Hi, Mom!

I have some great news! After a couple of months lurking at the Wikipedia parody site "The Uncyclopedia" (http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Main_Pageposting), I finally decided to post some stuff to it. Well, after only three contributions, I have been BANNED! My particular brand of BS has been deemed unworthy of the most blatantly bullshit website on the Internet! Yes, it's true!

The reason given for the ban is "Get a life, get a job, get a haircut, get whatever, but just get the fuck out of here!"

I love it!

My only regret is that I was unable to submit my article about the Flying Fucks before I got banned, so...


The Flying Fucks

The Flying Fucks were a popular circus trapeze act whose active career spanned the roughly thirty-year period from the early 1960s to the early1990s.

Personnel...

Like many circus acts, The Flying Fucks were all members of a single extended family. Though the actual personnel during any given year was subject to change due to drug busts, court-ordered rehab stints, and recuperation from gunshot wounds, the following family members all performed at various times during the family's career:

Elmo "Buddy" Fuck - The family patriarch and bus driver
Esmeralda "Mother" Fuck - The family matriarch and master tie-dye artist
Mercy Fuck - Daughter of Buddy and Mother, head money launderer
Butler "Butt" Fuck - Son of Buddy and Mother, chemist
Anita Quick-Fuck - Wife of Butt Fuck, attorney
Watt D. Fuck - Nephew of Buddy and Mother, mechanic and all-round muscle
Oscar "O" Fuck - Watt D. Fuck's twin brother, check forger
Theresa "Tit" Fuck - Sister of Watt and O, too perpetually stoned to be much good for anything

History...

The Flying Fucks came from a long line of circus people. Unfortunately, the line only included sideshow barkers, cotton-candy sellers, and elephant shit shovelers, not performers. How Buddy Fuck, a ticket-taker, and Mother Fuck, a popcorn vendor, ever got up the nerve to climb to the top of the circus tent and learn to fly on the trapeze is still a mystery, though legend has it that copious amounts of alcohol and/or illegal drugs were involved. Whatever the circumstances, the two Fucks continued practicing after hours and eventually became very proficient aerialists. As soon as their children, nieces and nephews became old enough, they too were taught the aerialist's skills, and by 1964 the family troupe began performing for packed houses. From 1964 until 1967, the Flying Fucks performed for the Ned Beatty and Soul Brothers Circus. Then, in January of 1968, during the circus's off-season, The Flying Fucks accepted an engagement performing between acts at a three-day rock festival featuring the band The Great Full Bed. That gig was the beginning of a decades' long relationship between The Flying Fucks, The Bed, and the band's followers who called themselves "Bedheads". The Flying Fucks' opening act and between-set performances were often the highlight of Bed concerts, the members of the band being too stoned to play more often than not. This relationship lasted until the death of the Bed's lead guitarist, Mister Potatohead, the result of a two-week binge of kitten huffing.

The Act...

The Flying Fucks' trapeze act was notable for two unique stunts. A few minutes into each performance, one of the Fucks would roll a six-foot-tall foam donut along a highwire and the other members of the troupe would dive from their trapezes through the hole in the giant donut. This was known as "A Flying Fuck at a Rolling Donut". The other unique stunt was always the finale' of a Flying Fuck performance. All the members of the troupe would dive from their trapezes in unison and each would pass through a large hoop with a tissue-paper moon stretched over it. This was known as "A Flying Fuck at the Moon".

Beyond the Act...

As a result of the Flying Fucks' association with the Great Full Bed and their Bedhead fans, The Flying Fucks eventually found themselves drawn into the underworld of LSD, MDA, STP, PCP, DMT, XYZ and a bunch of other letters as well. All of the Fucks openly experimented with whatever they could get their hands on, but after a few missed catches, mid-air crashes, and broken bones they decided that it made more sense to make the stuff than eat it. So, Butt Fuck took a correspondence course in chemistry and the Flying Fucks tour bus became a designer drug lab. The Flying Fucks' illicit products soon became the drugs of choice among Bedheads. Their best known products were two different types of blotter acid, one featuring a picture of the rolling donut from their trapeze act, and the other featuring a picture of the moon. People who took either of them were said to be either "Taking a Flying Fuck at a Rolling Donut" or "Taking a Flying Fuck at the Moon".

The End...

As previously mentioned, the Flying Fucks ceased actively performing when Great Full Bed guitarist Mister Potatohead died in 1994. They have all retired to an island off the coast of France where they raise sheep which they rent by the half-hour to visiting Scotsmen, Australians and New Zealanders.

Granted, we had to create elements 104 to 217, but that wasn't a problem because back then we were well educated young people, not like nowadays when the students couldn't build a linear accelerator or a cyclotron or bevatron out of tinfoil and burnt matchsticks if their lives depended upon it. Why, did you know that Quantum Mechanics and Tensor Calculus aren't even taught in the grade schools anymore??? I was shocked, I tell you, shocked to my very core! Back in my day we only had a slide rule and/or an abacus to work out problems, but today, even with all the fancy calculators and computers you can't find a sixth grader who can integrate a nested trig function correctly!

Bullshitonium (bs) has been around for a long time, Rapaire. It floats freely in atmosphere, but there are two conditions which unstabilize it. One is when a certain amount of gravity is injected into the atmosphere, which tends to make Bs expand unless it is the far rarer isotope known as Bs -g. That isotope tends to permeate and levitate in the presence of atmospheric gravity and dispel the density thereof.

The other destabilizing effect is when Bs -g encounters Administrarium which is composed of a high concentration of   Bs+G anyway; small explosions at random tend to ensue.

POsitronium!! I always thought it should exist, and now it does!!!

The best study of the rare "atom" consisting
of two electrons and one positron is being reported. Positronium
(abbreviated Ps) is a very "clean" two-body object: it consists of
an electron and a positron which after about 150 nanoseconds
annihilate each other. For studying the theory of quantum
electrodynamics (QED), Ps is in some ways better even than the
hydrogen atom: with pointlike constituents and with no complicating
nuclear forces (the size of the proton and its own internal
structure interject uncertainties into QED estimates of H behavior),
Ps is a simpler, albeit fragile, quantum system. An even more
fragile "atom" is the tripartite object consisting of two electrons
and one positron. Ps-, as it is known, is less suitable for QED
studies than Ps, but has the great virtue of being the simplest
three-body system in physics.




Yaaaaay for positronium, the optimistic atom!!

When a sufficient amount of it is gathered in one place, guess what happens? A condition of critical levity ensues which makes any person within n+r^3 meters^2 of the center of effect feel delightfully happy and start laughing.

That there's a good 'un! Shore kin get a man a-goin'. 'Minds me of the time that Rusty Jack up at the Legion Hovel tried ta dig a hole clean through ta China. After he got down about fifteen feet he was yellin' fer a ladder er a rope or somethin'. Billy the Cob tossed down a lariat with a hangman's noose in the end, which brought forth all sorts of cussin' from Rusty Jack. Finally, Floozy Flossie -- she who used to be famous as one of the Bobbsey Twins -- poured a gallon of stompin' whiskey down inta the hole and ol' Rusty Jack jist stood at the bottom with his mouth wide open. Billy saw what was goin' on and wanted some of the action, so he jumped right inta the hole with Rusty Jack! Billy, though, had a lot more to him than Rusty Jack and he stuck fast about seven feet down. We coulda got him out eventually, only when he stuck Billy realized that his direrear was gonna cut loose agin. Well, it did, and if you think that the first bunch of cussin' was bad, you shore didn't want ta hear Rusty Jack this time! Anyway, the direrear made Billy the Cob so danged skinny that he slipped right on down to the bottom of the hole, where Rusty Jack clobbered him with the shovel. Finally, Pinto figgered out how ta rescue 'em, and we filled the hole with water and floated 'em out. Rusty Jack still ain't talkin' ta Billy the Cob, except for things like "Gimme that whiskey."

Take bottle firmly in one hand, angled slightly away from your body, and with a powerful, but controlled motion, run the back of your sword up the bottle to catch it just under the closure. It will work with anything with a lip on the bottle, ie beer etc, most wine and champagne
bottles.

In other news, not related to rapiers of any spelling, the following is of scientific interest in the eternal "body-spirit-mind" triangle debate:

"People who meditate grow bigger brains than those who don't. Researchers at Harvard, Yale, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have found the first evidence that meditation can alter the physical structure of our brains. Brain scans they conducted reveal that experienced meditators boasted increased thickness in parts of the brain that deal with attention and processing sensory input.

In one area of gray matter, the thickening turns out to be more pronounced in older than in younger people. That's intriguing because those sections of the human cortex, or thinking cap, normally get thinner as we age.

"Our data suggest that meditation practice can promote cortical plasticity in adults in areas important for cognitive and emotional processing and well-being," says Sara Lazar, leader of the study and a psychologist at Harvard Medical School. "These findings are consistent with other studies that demonstrated increased thickness of music areas in the brains of musicians, and visual and motor areas in the brains of jugglers. In other words, the structure of an adult brain can change in response to repeated practice."

The researchers compared brain scans of 20 experienced meditators with those of 15 nonmeditators. Four of the former taught meditation or yoga, but they were not monks living in seclusion. The rest worked in careers such as law, health care, and journalism. All the participants were white. During scanning, the meditators meditated; the others just relaxed and thought about whatever they wanted.

Meditators did Buddhist "insight meditation," which focuses on whatever is there, like noise or body sensations. It doesn't involve "om," other mantras, or chanting.

"The goal is to pay attention to sensory experience, rather than to your thoughts about the sensory experience," Lazar explains. "For example, if you suddenly hear a noise, you just listen to it rather than thinking about it. If your leg falls asleep, you just notice the physical sensations. If nothing is there, you pay attention to your breathing." Successful meditators get used to not thinking or elaborating things in their mind.

Study participants meditated an average of about 40 minutes a day. Some had been doing it for only a year, others for decades. Depth of the meditation was measured by the slowing of breathing rates. Those most deeply involved in the meditation showed the greatest changes in brain structure. "This strongly suggests," Lazar concludes, "that the differences in brain structure were caused by the meditation, rather than that differences in brain thickness got them into meditation in the first place." "...
