We're up to 14159 and I've just had a PM asking what we're talking about and why I commented about the random posting of poetry--as if I'm out of line for suggesting that new posters read the entire thread from beginning to end and post something original?

I think it is too far in the game to stop and say why we're here--Gluon and the freds know, and many others who have joined us through the years know. All it takes is backing up a few pages. Read 1000 posts, or 500. Maybe even just 100 or 50, and you'll get the idea. But don't get defensive if after 14,158 we are not putting a disclaimer at the top of every page of 50, spelling out our raison d'être!

Pull up your socks (you might want to check for ticks, first, this time of year), number6, and go with the flow. That is all that we ask!

Again the Plagiarists announce!
Here this one trumpets,That one bleats,
And in their theft their hearts denounce,
Reciting "Eve of Saint Agnes", Keats.
Or lifting earlier artists still,
More calumny he earns
By crowing, like a cock-'o-hill,
"Ah, WOe Is Me", by Burns.
The deft and clever fingers light,
Of those who run this ring at night
And Fagan-like bring home to Mother
Possessions lifted from another,
Will soon reveal what they are doin'
And bring their Mother dear to ruin
Unless their wicked, proud concession
Soon healéd is by pure confession.

James Wickcroft Stopes
"Country Ballads of Rogues, Footpads, and other False Heroes"
London, 1897

Funny you should mention verbal diarrhea, SRS. I fear that Rapaire, having previously been suffering from a form of verbal constipation, has now gone to the opposite extreme and opened the floodgates, so to speak, which may lead on to god knows what kind of excesses!

We're up to 14153. I often times use poetry when I'm ready to pounce on a number (for preservation purposes, in advance of one of Mudcat's generalists who pounce, regardless of the flow of conversation or subject matter, just to add another notch to their bedposts or belts). Is there a significant number approaching, that number6 is attempting to preserve, or is this symptom of verbal diarrhea, a borrowing to fulfill a need to post without having caught up with the goings-on here on MOAB? Or is it an attempt to distract Rapaire from trumpeting his own trumpet?

"Ah, woe is me, my mother dear!
A man of strife ye've born me:
For sair contention I maun bear;
They hate, revile, and scorn me.

I ne'er could lend on bill or band,
That five per cent. might blest me;
And borrowing, on the tither hand,
The deil a ane wad trust me.

Yet I, a coin-denied wight,
By Fortune quite discarded;
Ye see how I am, day and night,
By lad and lass blackguarded! "

ST. AGNES' Eve?Ah, bitter chill it was!        
The owl, for all his feathers, was a-cold;        
The hare limp'd trembling through the frozen grass,        
And silent was the flock in woolly fold:        
Numb were the Beadsman's fingers, while he told              
His rosary, and while his frosted breath,        
Like pious incense from a censer old,        
Seem'd taking flight for heaven, without a death,        
Past the sweet Virgin's picture, while his prayer he saith.        

His prayer he saith, this patient, holy man;              
Then takes his lamp, and riseth from his knees,        
And back returneth, meagre, barefoot, wan,        
Along the chapel, this prayerful Rapaire        
The sculptur'd dead, on each side, seem to freeze,        
Emprison'd in black, purgatorial rails:              
Knights, ladies, praying in dumb orat'ries,        
He passeth by; and his weak spirit fails        
To think how they may ache in icy hoods and mails.        

Northward he turneth through a little door,        
And scarce three steps, ere Music's golden tongue              
Flatter'd to tears this aged man and poor;        
But no?already had his deathbell rung;        
The joys of all his life were said and sung:        
His was harsh penance on St. Agnes' Eve:        
Another way he went, and soon among              
Rough asses sat he for his soul's reprieve,        
And all night kept awake, for sinners' sake to grieve.

IF this means Rapaire has stolen his hat back, as regards the Plagiarism Concession, I am glad for him. If it means he has hired on help to stay in operation longer, I will go tear out my remaining hair quietly.

"You are old, mother MOAB," the young man said,
                  "And your hair has become very white;
             And yet you incessantly stand on your head --
                  Do you think, at your age, it is right?"

             "In my youth," mother MOAB replied to her son,
                  "I feared it would injure the brain;
             But now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
                  Why, I do it again and again."

             "You are old," said the youth, "as I mentioned before,
                And have grown most uncommonly fat;
             Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door --
                Pray, what is the reason of that?"

            "In my youth," said the sage, as she shook her grey locks,
                "I kept all my limbs very supple
            By the use of this ointment -- one shilling the box --
                Allow me to sell you a couple."

            "You are old," said the youth, "and your jaws are too weak
                For anything tougher than suet;
            Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak --
                Pray, how did you manage to do it?"

            "In my youth," said his mother, "I took to the law,
                And argued each case with my spouse;
            And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
                Has readied me for nothing but scouse."

            "You are old," said the youth; one would hardly suppose
                That your eye was as steady as ever;
            Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose --
                What made you so awfully clever?"

            "I have answered three questions, and that is enough,"
                Said his mother; "don't give yourself airs!
            Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
                Be off, or I'll kick you down stairs!"

It could just be a very advanced case of sir jOhns problem, an almost complete keyboard failure. He's trying to say more, but the letters just aren't there.

Either that or Gluon is chasing the spare letters round Sagittariaus gamma ultra ( I'm not looking up ASCII for greek letters), and they'll turn up as a dribble of slightly chewed characters, scatterd back and forth across a number of years. The blank posts are just the spaces getting back first, as they're fastest.

I see where the National Intell folks have finally come to the conclusion that waging war in Iraq actually caused more terrorism and bred more radicalism than would have happened without it. See, that's the difference between Quality BS and bad BS. Because Quality BS is self-aware, it does not have to be dramatized subconsciously and therefore makes the world better, not worse...

Half a post, half a post, half a post onward
Down to the edge of the page where the BS thunders,
Onward we galloped, where the page devils roam
Bound to save Mother, and bring her back home.
Then up to the saddle, and sharpen your wit
For we'll need every spark of your world-class bullshit
As downwards we stagger, through the wild breakers comb
To hoist up Auld Maw, and to bring her back home.

Busy day, MOM, but I'm home and ready to hop in the shower. Kind of an exciting (not good) event this morning--after walking the dogs I found a tick on me--attached. Yuck! Now I'll keep an eye out for anything that might need to be treated because of it. It didn't get much blood, it wasn't there long, but it was attached and did leave a spot. I will be checking the dogs again in the morning, and I won't be walking through that field again any time soon! Not till after a hard freeze, maybe.

"Well I'm very glad you asked me that for at this point in time
In the circumstances that prevail there is in the pipeline
Infrastructural implications interfaced with lines of thought
Which lead to grass roots viabilities which at this time I'd rather not Annunciate in ambiguities but rather seek to find
Negotiated compromises which are the bottom line
For full and frank discussion which would serve to integrate
With basic fundamental principles to which we all relate
Not indoctrinaire philosophy which any fool can see
An inescapable hypothesis confronting you and me
So in the interest of the common good now you need never fear
For I've got the matter well in hand and I'm glad I've made things clear."
