Here's yet another deep thought:

If we are what we eat, do cannibals become who they eat? What about vegetarians? What happens if we eat a bug? If someone tells you to "eat shit and die" do you have to understand the ding an sich before comprehending the essence of the statement?

All of these questions and more trouble me.

Here's another deep thought:

If a dachshund runs out the door only to find a foot of cold, wet snow on the ground and there is no one there to let the critter back in, does it exist?

No, thanks. I have lots and lots of well-thought-out thoughts to supply. For instance:

Before I found enlightenment the mountains were mountains and the rivers were rivers.

While I sought enlightenment the mountains were not mountains and the rivers were not rivers.

Now that I have reached satori the mountains are mountains and the rivers are rivers.

You're right, Amos.

I gave a pint (in metric) of blood because I felt it a good thing to do. So I told them to send it San Diego and reserve it for you, but only if it was an incompatible blood type.

No, no, no need to thank me.

Rapaire:

IF you were only motivated by things that "someone has to...", you'd never get out of the crapper, would you? Obviously there are other considerations in play. I pray you bee not disingenuous.

How big is a unit of blood? Is it the same as a pint? Maybe they look at you and go, "Hmmm... This is a pretty big guy here. Looks like unit of his blood would be about a pint and seven ounces."

Be sure to go to Chuck-O-Rama tonight to make up for the protein loss.

You're safe over here, Don.

I've been resetting my monitors this morning. After many struggles I think I've now FINALLY got them working correctly on the ol' dual head card. I've concluded that my glasses Rx needs to be updated. :-/

Who ever is the administrator on the forum lately has been very busy removing all traces of my posts. During this time when my family needs all the good thoughts possible, this has been disheartening.

Well, as long as he didn't succeed in his trying. I understand that the young ladies of Northern Ontario would just point and laugh, and that his coffin was the only one ever made with a convex part of the lid. In fact, I noticed the extensive sinking at a certain spot on his grave when I was looking for him.

Hell, if you want slow transmission, try the French method--they transmit their bits phonically with "oou" equal to zero, and "ahhh" equal to one.   They save a lot on copper wire, but it costs a great deal in repeater stations. It has a very low rate of Baud-de-l'aire.

I was being generous when I guessed at 600 baud. Much slower and it might as well be someone reading words or numbers over the phone line.

Sorry I've been away all day, MOM. It was a long day at work.

Yes, and I never will. I don't fight with dead guys, and I don't speak ill of the dead. If I did, I would say that Shame McBride was a drunken, but failed, attempt; that after him the mold was broken by court order; that he deserved his nickname of "Teeny Weeny"; and that because Tim Horton's was having a donut sale no one attended his funeral except for people he died owing money to. But I never say bad things about the vitally challenged and so I can't say that he was a two-bit, backstabbing, beer-stealing, Budweiser-drinking, bottom-dealing, bottom dweller who, fortunately for the human gene pool, never got a chance to try to reproduce.

My sword works the same way. Sometimes I'll find it all ready to go, waiting to fill my hand, because it knows that I'll be using it. It kinda takes the fun our of fencing though, since it knows what to do before it's been done. But I do win all of my bouts....

Maybe you have joggled your transtemporal lobes around with all that target practice?

By the way how do you hit an object when it is moving through time at a rate of something like one frame every 1/c second? Special transtemporal ammo?

I've made sense of the recent posts, despite the typos (mine included). But MOM, I ordered a new old IBM-style keyboard yesterday. They did a story about them on NPR last week or I wouldn't have known about them, but I know I always loved typing on the old IBM Selectric keyboard. I hope to enjoy my typing more and perhaps improve the accuracy. Alas, it won't help my spelling, so it might be a wash.

My question about the vicious dogs has been answered to my satisfaction on another thread. The reason people who appear to have nothing worth stealing are likely to have several vicious dogs is to keep you from going into their yard looking for something they may have stolen from you.

You're correct, of course, BWL. And since I feel I have things to protect, I have a couple of dogs of distinguished breeds (pit bull and catahoula) who make a lot of noise, but who would roll over to have their tummies rubbed in the burglar just talked to them real nice.

As to ketchup, I have a bottle that has been in the fridge for a couple of years. You're welcome to come try it and see if it is still fresh.
