Now Amos, you know that Chonga is simply an example of a time-independent application of the Schrödinger equation for a single non-relativistic particle in a multiphase, multidimensional universe. So for that matter is everything else, for I will it to be so.

That's one lucky chump. The dockmaster or whatever he's called in East Chi just got the cuffs because he was doin' racketeering and sellin' dope and so I lost my contact to provide Chumpo with a nice, healthy swimmin' lesson and magic trick: gettin' out of the chains and away from the anchor and then swimmin' back to Chi before it was too late.

I think the word "she" in Stilly's post needs to be changed to "the dog" in order to clarify the subject of the verbal phrase "humps the Galactic Overlord's leg." Sometimes less ambiguity is better

Chongo's puppet master believes himself inordinately clever to call me latté boy, as thoug that were some kind of insult, instead of a sign of sophistication and worldly ways. This imaginary character is teejus, sometimes, and should probably be sent back to the mental jungle from which it was allegedly born.e

That Galactic Overlord is a hasbeen chump. I drank him under the table last year over at Vinnie's Bar & Steak House. He woke up an hour later, staggered out to find me, and got rolled by 2 baboons in the alleyway. Then the cops arrested him for vagrancy and threw him in the drunk tank for the night. He ain't been back to Chicago since.

Sage quietly reaches behind her and unlatches the door to the duck-dog's cozy kennel and lets the pooch dash into the room. She humps the leg of the galactic overlord and in the process reflects back gamma rays he intended to use to turn the room into a giant microwave oven. He is dead before he hits the ground.

Greetings to my food subjects! You will obey or you will be slaughtered in a decidedly nasty manner instead of by my usual humane methods. You will immediately do reverence to me while you await your turn to nourish me. For this you will be thankful.

All should now be clear.

Have a great holiday, those of you who celebrate it. MOM was up kind of late doing some baking and sipping wine and I fear now she will miss much of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade by sleeping it off.

You're offended that 999 is prim and proper? That he can pour tea without hitting his crotch with the stream? That he actually can tell the difference between beer and Budweiser by taste? That he knows which is a fork and which is a spoon?

The dude wasn't raised in Kent County, you know. He had a real high-class upbringing, with hot and cold running maids and everything.

Dites-moi où, n'en quel pays,
Est Flora la belle Romaine,
Archipiades, ne Thaïs,
Qui fut sa cousine germaine,
Echo, parlant quant bruit on mène
Dessus rivière ou sur étang,
Qui beauté eut trop plus qu'humaine ?
Mais où sont les neiges d'antan ?

Où est la très sage Héloïs,
Pour qui fut châtré et puis moine
Pierre Esbaillart à Saint-Denis ?
Pour son amour eut cette essoine.
Semblablement, où est la roine
Qui commanda que Buridan
Fût jeté en un sac en Seine ?
Mais où sont les neiges d'antan ?

La roine Blanche comme un lis
Qui chantait à voix de sirène,
Berthe au grand pied, Bietrix, Aliz,
Haramburgis qui tint le Maine,
Et Jeanne, la bonne Lorraine
Qu'Anglais brûlèrent à Rouen ;
Où sont-ils, où, Vierge souvraine ?
Mais où sont les neiges d'antan ?

Prince, n'enquerrez de semaine
Où elles sont, ni de cet an,
Que ce refrain ne vous remaine :
Mais où sont les neiges d'antan ?

[S]o long as other classes continue to exist, the capitalist class in particular, the proletariat fights it (for with the coming of the proletariat to power, its enemies will not yet have disappeared, the old organization of society will not yet have disappeared), it must still use a measure of force, hence governmental measures; if it itself still remains a class and the economic conditions on which the class struggle and the existence of classes have not yet disappeared, they must be forcibly removed or transformed, and the process of their transformation must be forcibly accelerated.

And here's the rest of Prufrock:

And indeed there will be time        
For the yellow smoke that slides along the street,        
Rubbing its back upon the window panes;               25
There will be time, there will be time        
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;        
There will be time to murder and create,        
And time for all the works and days of hands        
That lift and drop a question on your plate;               30
Time for you and time for me,        
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,        
And for a hundred visions and revisions,        
Before the taking of a toast and tea.        

In the room the women come and go               35
Talking of Michelangelo.        

And indeed there will be time        
To wonder, "Do I dare?" and, "Do I dare?"        
Time to turn back and descend the stair,        
With a bald spot in the middle of my hair?               40
(They will say: "How his hair is growing thin!")        
My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin,        
My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin?        
(They will say: "But how his arms and legs are thin!")        
Do I dare               45
Disturb the universe?        
In a minute there is time        
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.        

For I have known them all already, known them all:        
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,               50
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;        
I know the voices dying with a dying fall        
Beneath the music from a farther room.        
So how should I presume?        

And I have known the eyes already, known them all?               55
The eyes that fix you in a formulated phrase,        
And when I am formulated, sprawling on a pin,        
When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall,        
Then how should I begin        
To spit out all the butt-ends of my days and ways?               60
And how should I presume?        

And I have known the arms already, known them all?        
Arms that are braceleted and white and bare        
(But in the lamplight, downed with light brown hair!)        
Is it perfume from a dress               65
That makes me so digress?        
Arms that lie along a table, or wrap about a shawl.        
And should I then presume?        
And how should I begin?
.      .      .      .      .      .      .      .
Shall I say, I have gone at dusk through narrow streets               70
And watched the smoke that rises from the pipes        
Of lonely men in shirt-sleeves, leaning out of windows??        

I should have been a pair of ragged claws        
Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.
.      .      .      .      .      .      .      .
And the afternoon, the evening, sleeps so peacefully!               75
Smoothed by long fingers,        
Asleep ? tired ? or it malingers,        
Stretched on the floor, here beside you and me.        
Should I, after tea and cakes and ices,        
Have the strength to force the moment to its crisis?               80
But though I have wept and fasted, wept and prayed,        
Though I have seen my head (grown slightly bald) brought in upon a platter,        
I am no prophet?and here's no great matter;        
I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,        
And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker,               85
And in short, I was afraid.        

And would it have been worth it, after all,        
After the cups, the marmalade, the tea,        
Among the porcelain, among some talk of you and me,        
Would it have been worth while,               90
To have bitten off the matter with a smile,        
To have squeezed the universe into a ball        
To roll it toward some overwhelming question,        
To say: "I am Lazarus, come from the dead,        
Come back to tell you all, I shall tell you all"?               95
If one, settling a pillow by her head,        
Should say: "That is not what I meant at all;        
That is not it, at all."        

And would it have been worth it, after all,        
Would it have been worth while,               100
After the sunsets and the dooryards and the sprinkled streets,        
After the novels, after the teacups, after the skirts that trail along the floor?        
And this, and so much more??        
It is impossible to say just what I mean!        
But as if a magic lantern threw the nerves in patterns on a screen:               105
Would it have been worth while        
If one, settling a pillow or throwing off a shawl,        
And turning toward the window, should say:        
"That is not it at all,        
That is not what I meant, at all."
.      .      .      .      .      .      .      .
       110
No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;        
Am an attendant lord, one that will do        
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,        
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,        
Deferential, glad to be of use,               115
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;        
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;        
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous?        
Almost, at times, the Fool.        

I grow old ? I grow old ?               120
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.        

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?        
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.        
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.        

I do not think that they will sing to me.               125

I have seen them riding seaward on the waves        
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back        
When the wind blows the water white and black.        

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea        
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown               130
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.

The yellow fog that rubs its back upon the window-panes,
              
The yellow smoke that rubs its muzzle on the window-panes        
Licked its tongue into the corners of the evening,        
Lingered upon the pools that stand in drains,        
Let fall upon its back the soot that falls from chimneys,        
Slipped by the terrace, made a sudden leap,              
And seeing that it was a soft October night,        
Curled once about the house, and fell asleep.

LET us go then, you and I,        
When the evening is spread out against the sky        
Like a patient etherized upon a table;        
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,        
The muttering retreats                 
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels        
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:        
Streets that follow like a tedious argument        
Of insidious intent        
To lead you to an overwhelming question?.                 
Oh, do not ask, "What is it?"        
Let us go and make our visit.

ANd something ELSE Mom should think about while she is lollygagging among the lower orders:

Zitterbewegung (English: "trembling motion", from German) is a theoretical rapid motion of elementary particles, in particular electrons, that obey the Dirac equation. The existence of such motion was first proposed by Erwin Schrödinger in 1930 as a result of his analysis of the wave packet solutions of the Dirac equation for relativistic electrons in free space, in which an interference between positive and negative energy states produces what appears to be a fluctuation (at the speed of light) of the position of an electron around the median, with a circular frequency of , or approximately 1.6×1021 Hz.
