I like Hawk's explanation too, but I would say there's a BIG difference between a clear morning rising from darkness, and a plug ugly Chimp with a gun. I mean really.

I am bound to admit, Little Hawk, that your explication (following) does the best job of explaining how your mind works that I have heretofore seen. Well done.

"LOL!!! Truly the stricken wordsmith doth strive mightily from his bed of pain, weaving noble verse and hurling barb-ed shafts of puissant wit, thereby to fret his case and not forfeit cause in the face of cruel and arbitrary malady.

"But list, Amos! I am in no wise endangered in maintaining mine own identity unsullied midst the vagaries and strange passions of mine own creations such as yon Chimp. No, indeed. Rather is mine own nature thus strengthened and confirmed by way of vivid contrast, as is the light of a clear morning rendered yet more vivid by the obscure darkness that preceded it.

"Thus, my good sir, do I enhance and enlarge my present reality whilst others lose themselves in cleaving too narrowly to their accustomed forms and labels. They who could be all do themselves a disservice in saying, "This I am. Only this and nothing more."

It could have lived another 500 years! I hope they don't go disturbing the bed for even older ones to kill. And I bet they didn't even make clam chowder.

"Climate researchers at Bangor University in the United Kingdom recently counted 405 annual growth rings in the shells of a quahog clam.... The animal died when the researchers counted its rings."

And that was surprising?

They throw the heads away? Seems like a waste to me. Couldn't they at least make head cheese or use it to catch more cats. They say they raise them but wouldn't free range cats that eat all natural be more tastey? If they really do want to appeal to "the high end market" I think they should look into this.

It would be "You" or "Thou", not "Ye" or "Thee". The "Y" carried the "th" sound (as in the Greek word "theta") at the time you are writing. The soft "th" or "thorn" was also used.

Never give an infomaniac an opening.

Hey, dudes and dudettes. I have a graduate degree in Library and Information Science and 40+ years doin' it. Pat's got a degree in mathematics (minor in physics), a graduate degree in Library and Information Science, a Fifth Year Certificate in Computers in Medical Library (post-grad fellowship at Washington U. in St. Louis), and a JD. Neither of us can stop ourselves from...Looking It Up.

Yes.

We're both infomaniacs. Information junkies, if you will. There is no 12-step program to help us because we'd look up the 12-step program. The ONLY cure is death -- not even ECT or lobotomies will cure this terrible scourge.

Want to know the ballistic rise or fall of a 150-grain .30-30 bullet at 50 yards? +2.6 inches. How about the constants that Planck units normalize to 1? Gravitational constant, G; Reduced Planck constant, ħ; Speed of light in a vacuum, c; Coulomb constant, \textstyle \frac{1}{4 \pi \varepsilon_0} (sometimes ke or k) and Boltzmann's constant, kB (sometimes k). Want to know where to buy cat meat? I've already posted that; the site includes recipes.

YES, YES, YES!! I can't stop myself!! I've fallen into the Pit Of Information, the Whirlpool so aptly described by Buber in his "Dialogue Above The City", and I don't want to get up 'cause it's way cool and interesting in here as long as I don't attempt to structure the whirlpool in any way.

Oh, the places you go!

Regular-hair Dachshunds (shorthaired or "smooth") are also useful as doorstops, bookends, and industrial strength paperweights, Rap. They make good ballast, in other words. You can use them, for instance, to tether a hot air balloon, providing it isn't a really large one.

I finally chipped my back door loose of the slide frame and got it open in time to feed the dogs this evening. The freezing rain glued it shut, might again because it won't be above freezing for a couple of more days. So the 2 steps that I set up using patio bricks next to the bedroom window will stay for the rest of the week so the dogs can get into the house.

Speaking of which, they're in here and they've been awfully quiet. . .

LOL!!! Truly the stricken wordsmith doth strive mightily from his bed of pain, weaving noble verse and hurling barb-ed shafts of puissant wit, thereby to fret his case and not forfeit cause in the face of cruel and arbitrary malady.

But list, Amos! I am in no wise endangered in maintaining mine own identity unsullied midst the vagaries and strange passions of mine own creations such as yon Chimp. No, indeed. Rather is mine own nature thus strengthened and confirmed by way of vivid contrast, as is the light of a clear morning rendered yet more vivid by the obscure darkness that preceded it.

Thus, my good sir, do I enhance and enlarge my present reality whilst others lose themselves in cleaving too narrowly to their accustomed forms and labels. They who could be all do themselves a disservice in saying, "This I am. Only this and nothing more."

This working life now wearies me,
I shall no longer scheme
Nor strive; instead, I shall remove
To an imaginary creature's dream.
To be in the dream of an Iffrit bold,
Or the dream of Shakespeare's imp;
Or, scraping the barrel, to be in the dream
Of Little Hawk's two-bit chimp.
Now there would be a vivid life,
Of color and fire and vim
But oh, the risk, in such a life,
Of then becoming him!
No longer would I dream at peace,
Or fly the world at ease;
Instead I'd toss throughout the night
Scratching my dream-self's fleas.
The curses and the violent thoughts,
The rank and sour smell!
Perhaps I'd rather stay employed
Than live in such a hell.

Alive as you or me
I said "But you're imagin'ry!"
"I'm real as real!", said he.
"Wherever dweebs are nobbing hob
ANd dreamers come to chat
I'll be there trying to raise hob, he said,
And firing my gat!"
I said, "You're just a figment, chimp!
A stressed soul's thin delusion!"
"HUsha!" he said, "You know full well,
Denial's no solution!"
"For in every post where you read my name,
And imagine my fedora,
You make me real as any two-bit dame
Who cashes chips in for ya."
And I blinked, and then the chimp was gone
Like dew on a summer morning
But I could not help but shake inside,
And make myself take warning!
For if you defend your sense of all that's real,
And insist in all frustration
That the realest you knows the realest They
You'll be choked on imagination.

The hot red pepper and banana powder suppositories with the *secret ingredient* which I am sellin' work way better, Rap. And they are STILL AVAILABLE but runnin' out FAST!

As Amos said (in a rare moment of clarity) "timning is everything". Got that right, Roscoe! My Dad was a fine timner and that is one of the reasons why I inherited the smarts to get to America and make somethin' out of myself instead of just remainin' a bush ape for the rest of my life. My Dad had a little timning shop set up in a clearing on one of the main trails through our area of bush. Because he was such a good timner, all the local natives (Blacks) used to come to my Dad when they needed some timning done, and they paid him in fruits, roots, and handicrafted items that got passed around our band. In time the word about my Dad's timning skills got pretty widespread, so when the White hunters came through I got an introduction, joined on as a guide and porter, and the rest is history, and ALL because of good timning!

It's sad that it is a skill that has almost vanished from the Earth since automation and mass production took over, but that is the way of the world.
