Oh boy! Now I have learned a new word: "kluge (or "kludge" - either spelling is acceptable). And it has nothing to do with William Shatner! Oh frabjous day!

Rapaire:

I am amuzed and surpized to discover you have been chasnneling the great Germaine of Mettafizzick Fayme.

I know a little bit about Densities. But I do not know everything about them. That is okay, though. Neither does Germaine! :D

BWL:

The AOL browser is a juryrig. What it probably falls short on is knowing how to handle various Java commands when it comes to them. Traditionally, AOL had had to be a kluge when dealing with internet because it was born and bred as a standalone database, not part of an internet. It only shifted over late in its life. So it still has kluge genes in its blood.

You might well wanna try Firefox, reputed to be excellent, as well as free.

Bee-dubya, got to www.mozilla.org and download Firefox. It's an excellent browser. You can still use AOL to get your email.

Amos, you have to first Understand. You dwell in the Third Density, but the Densities are Infinite. In the Sixth Density is music, in the Seventh odors. Combining the Sixth and Seventh Densities does not, of course, give us the Thirteen Density, but opens and entirely new Density. When you can grasp Multidense Geometries you begin to communicate. It says so right on the label.

YAS!!! The word "BLINK" in my previous post blinks using Opera, but not using AOL. I'm still astounded. But then, simple things astound simple minds pretty darned easily. Don't ask me whether or not it blinks using Internet Explorer 'cause my IE start page has been hijacked rather severely and I just can't bring myself to care enough to fix the problem.

I am in a state of total shock and dismay! Not only did Rapaire and I both post messages attributing JennyO's problem to monkeying around with entropy (though Rap's was posted 18 minutes before mine, it was not already on the board when I began typing - it takes me a lot longer than 18 minutes to come up with that much BS) but I had no idea that the same stuff was treated differently by different browsers. I usually use AOL's browser, but I do have Opera 'cause some wesbsites aren't very AOL friendly and can cause its browser to crash. So I opened this thread in Opera and, lo and behold, there's stuff blinkin' at me that wasn't blinkin' with AOL. I had noticed that the BLINK tag wouldn't work some time ago, but I had assumed it had something to do with the 'Cat, not the browser. Now I am going to have to revisit everyplace I've been on the Mudact for the last 2.5 years and look for blinky messages that I missed.

I feel dreadfully humbled, enlightened and some other stuff as well.

Dear Rapaire:

An interesting assertion -- but why do you offer no substantiation of it?

These silly effects don't look nearly so interesting (or colorful) in Firefox.

Consider that only a fraction of the total "capability for attention" in the individual being is focused wihtin the frame of the material continuum, and the probability is great that it is a minor fraction, less than 1/10.

The balance of the individual attention is divided between unresolved past images from within the material continuum, and other stuff. It is from this other stuff that we find our LEAST recognized yet MOST important set of determinant variables in trying to understand why people are the way they are. If these variables could be tracked, the whole spectrum of human dreams, choices, behaviours and desires would be as understandable as an ordinary internal combustion engine.

The ability to analyze the Other Stuff dimensions, and their effect on the more ordinary aspects of human life, is contingent on someone coming up with a way to codify a vocabulary of perception in those regions; this in turn requires some method of reducing such perception to a duplicatable technology. Ideally such a reduction would involve instrumentation that would provide some sort of mathematical comparison between instances.

This capability is well beyond the current scope of known or imagined technology but that has never bothered us before now.

Aww, Maggie, that's analytical, not BS!!!

One of the truisms emerging from my recent researches into "Pan-dimensional Facets of Horse Manure in Human Ideation (PFHMHI) is the following:

"Any analysis that is sufficiently advanced or subtle will gradually become indistinguishable from BS -- even when from a reputable source!"

That little gem took YEARS of research.

True, Bee-Dubya, but if you watch long enough entropy again increases and the order-disorder-order again becomes disordered. She has actually created cyclic entropy, right here in our own MOAB.

I think that there is great potential for this. Perpetual motion, for instance.

Wow! JennyO has created a message that exhibits both positive and negative entropy! It starts out in a state of order (the words all lined up in a nice diagonal) but it inevitably winds its way toward disorder. That's entropy in a nutshell. But, then, if you watch the screen long enough it eventually rebuilds itself into an ordered state. That's negative entropy.

Now, as we all know, negative entropy is a contradiction and cannot exist. Order can only be imposed upon a system by using energy borrowed from someplace else and the amount of disorder created by that borrowing is always greater than the amount of order imposed. The old "There's no such thing as a free lunch." bit.

But JennyO's message first craetes disorder from order and then turns around and creates order from disorder with no borrowing of energy from someplace else. She has reversed entropy! And it happened right here on the Mother of All BS Threads!

Astounding!

That, JennyO, is because Mother is in control. Mother doesn't like order. Mother doesn't like things to be nice and neat. Mother doesn't like anal retention. Mother does, however, love the Second Law of Thermodynamics and, of course, entropy. In fact, Mother has the Second Law of MOAB: BS will always flow from states of higher to lesser density. Expressed mathematically, this would be

                         S1>S2=S3=S1+S2/2

or, in words If BS state 1 is greater than BS state 2, then BS State 3 results, which is equal to the total of S1 plus S2 divided by 2. Since, by definition, you can't in this Universe have more than a state of greater BS and a state of lesser BS, no more than two states are possible or even desirable (some would argue that one state is too many).

Amos's recent work in multi-dimensional BS entropy, however, is quite exciting (if you're into that sort of thing), showing as it does the probability that alternate states of greater and lesser BS can and most likely do exist, but in places where we can't see them. Sort of like a transdimensional game of hide-and-seek, only you can't see either the other players or where they are hiding. I'm certain that he'd be as happy as a pig in mudtime to post his work here if you were to ask him to do so. Be sure to ask him sweetly and nicely, because he's usually a surly old burp. You won't understand it -- heck, not even Amos understands it, having done most of it when he was drunk -- but it certainly is interesting to see all them mathematical squiggles and stuff.

Dear Ima Gittin',

I remember someone named Ima Dumbass posting to one of the Dr. Guitar threads. Are you related?

Of course, if you were related it would also mean that you are Chinese since it is the first names that match and Chinese folks put their surnames first. Obviously, Gittin' and Dumbass are not the same name, so you cannot be related unless you are Chinese, even though Ima Dumbass may be gittin' some and Ima Gittin' may be a dumbass, though I am in no way qualified to make that judgement and only mention it as a hypothetical possibility.

In fact, the only MOABite to whom the term Dumbass could be applied with absolutely no room for error or uncertainty is Tweed. Tweed's total lack of anything resembling mental acuity is a universally accepted fact throughout the entire realm of MOAB. And now that Tweed is not merely Tweed, but Tweed Who is Aslo khandu, the situation seems to be even worse. We had hoped that by combining Tweed's cashew-sized brain and khandu's acorn-sized brain a small glimmer of intelligence might somehow penetrate the dense fog known to occupy Tweed's cranial cavity. But, alas, in complete violation of common sense, the boy has actually gotten dumber since becoming the King of Mizzippi as well as the Mayor of Tweedsburg. It's as if Tweed's brain and khandu's brain had a knock-down drag-out fight over who was going to get to lay claim to all the empty space within Tweed's head and they both lost.

Yore's,

Bee-dubya-ell, The King's Royal Knower of Things

I, myself, always read what others have written. Good writing doesn't need gussying up, it doesn't need tricks and gimmicks to get its point across. Would Shakespeare be more if he had had his works flashing in lights? Would Pope or Cervantes, Twain or McGonagle, be greater if their works bounced around the page? No! These tricks, these trappings are used only to distract us from the Real Message of MOAB. Do not be fooled by these attractive wrappings, for inside the message is mere dust in the wind. Keep focused upon the Real Message of MOAB and let yourself be borne away by it to the realms of infinite glory. No, and no, and no! I say it again and again and again, do not be taken in by HTML tricks! Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what path others may take, but as for me, Give me....

Snuffy and Sodie and the Cowboy Code
by Wallace Mcrae

"Now I ain't scared a' grizzly bears,"
old Snuffy says one day,
"'N wolverines 'n catamounts
to me is pure child's play.
Them trantulas and scorpions?
I'll prance around 'em bold!
But partner, them dang rattlesnakes,
they make my blood run cold.
I lariats my bed each night.
My boots is tall bullhide.
I don't like be in' on the ground,
shoot yes! That's why I ride.
Despite these nifty safety steps,
I knows that I'll git bit.
I cogitates on remedies
to use if I git hit.
My old Case knife is razor sharp
to slash acrost each hole
Where that bugger's fangs went,
still, it chills me to the soul
To plan self-mutilation,
although it's necessary.
'N suckin' that there pizen out
to me is awful scary.
I reckon I could do it,
if my life was on the line.
'Cause I 'member when that critter bit
my hoss, sweet Adeline.
Now that pony was a kicker
of that there's paltry doubt.
No man on earth could suck his leg
to git the pizen out.
So his eyes they glassied over
'n sweat jist drenched his hide.
He shuddered, then he staggered,
'n I stood there as he died.'
Sometimes I lays awake at night
a-ponderin' on this.
'N I gits to speculatin'
on this hypothesis:
Say now, Sodie, jist fer instance,
we're out hossback some day,
'N old Cookie's beans has grabbed me
in a most emphatic way.
Now I got no time to tarry,
no sir! I'm in a rush.
But propriety it dictates
that I got to find some brush.
Well, I gits there, but jist barely.
There's no time to scout around.
And say ? in this brush's a viper
all coiled up on the ground.
Now I don't see him, but he sees me
'n he feels crowded some,
So he calculates trajectory
'n bites me on the bum.
So here I am all wounded
but I knows what must be done,
So fishin' out my sharp Case knife,
I carves X's on my bun.
But this I do by braille, you see,
I'm operatin' blind,
As I carves out love and kisses
all over my behind.
But I cain't suck the pizen out
'cause folks ain't built for that.
Then I thinks about you, Sodie,
   'n I yells 'n waves my hat.
So you rides up, 'n I tells you
the awful fix I'm in.
I'm checkin' all my bets to you.
Jist you can save my skin.
My eyes is glazin' over now.
My sun is sinkin' fast.
I'm remorseful of my sin-filled life;
regret my pintoed past.
This nightmare here's well-water clear
I pitcher in my mind.
I'm dyin' there. The question is,
now, Sodie, could you find
It in yer heart to help a pal
whose friendship is devout
'N save my life by suckin' all
that rattler's pizen out?
'Cause the Cowboy Code, it tells
the obligations of a friend.
It says, I quote, 'A pal must be
faithful to the end.'"
Well, Sodie rolled and lit a smoke
and said, "Yore right about
The Cowboy Code, but it don't
cover suckin' pizen out.
That 'faithful to the end,' you quote
I'd say is misdefined.
It dang sure don't require of me
to tend to yore behind.
If you git bit, I'll fan yer face
'n help the time pass by.
I'll speak soft words, but pardner,
yore damn sure gonna die!"

It is strongly suggested that you contact catspaw49 as he is definitely an expert in all things flatulent and fecal. If Spaw is not available, you may want to contact Martin Gibson.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR PREPARING AND EATING "MEAL READY-TO-EAT" ("MRE")

Option #1: Open the package containing the MRE. Find the package containing M&Ms, Skittles or Tootsie Rolls. Eat the candy and throw the rest of the shit away.

Option #2: Open the package containing the MRE. Find the plastic pouches containing stuff that looks like it should be served hot. If you have access to a stove or microwave oven, throw the MRE crap away and cook something else. If you do not have access to a microwave oven, open the ingenious MRE cooking pouch, stuff whatever you want heated into the pouch (it is not recommended that you heat M&Ms, Skittles or Tootsie Rolls) and fill pouch with water. The water will activate the magic crystals in the cooking pouch which will produce HEAT! After about five minutes the contents of the pouch will be HOT! Remove the pouch. Open it and taste the contents using your olive drab MRE plastic eating spoon. Allow the contents to cool for about ten minutes. Feed contents to your cat or dog.

Option #3: Open the package containing the MRE. Find the plastic pouch containing stuff whose description includes the word "bread" or "cake". Imagine that you and your partner are Frodo and Sam on the way to Mount Doom and that the stuff is really Lembas. Taste the stuff and spit it out when you realize it tastes more like Orc bile.

Option #4: Open the package containing the MRE. Find the plastic pouch containing stuff that has the word "beverage" associated with it, as in "Cherry Flavored Beverage Base". Pour ten or twelve ounces of potable water into a cup. Throw the "beverage base" away and drink the water.

Option #5: If you are absolutely starving to death, McDonald's has been flattened by a tornado, the cats have run off in fear of becoming moo-goo-gai-pan, and you just can't find any earthworms, you may actually have to EAT the MRE. In that case, follow instructions in Option #2 above but DON'T feed it to the dog. Instead, find the small bottle of Tabasco sauce included in the little hermetically sealed pouch that also includes matches, salt, pepper and the chewing gum that sticks to your fillings. In fact, you've probably been saving the Tabasco from all the other MRE's you've been feeding to the cat or using for target practice, haven't you? We hope so. Anyway, pour at least one full bottle of Tabasco sauce on the contents of whatever kind of crap was in the pouches you heated up, stir, and eat the resulting mass using your olive drab MRE plastic eating spoon. The objective is to apply Tabasco sauce in sufficient strength that the Tabasco is ALL you can taste. If you are able to taste anything other than Tabasco, add more Tabasco.

WARNING: Do not, under any circumstances, eat anything found in any pouch contained in an MRE if that item has the word "cheese" associated with it in any way.
