Have you noticed that sooner or later 'ilk' creep into the conversation. Ilk tend to do that.

SRS - I'm weekend in 1585 - I can't get connections from there - not even dial up! I'm thinking about complaining to her Majesty about that, but don't think even Gloriana herself can remedy the situation.

Bullshit is relative, you know. At least among my relatives it is. So all our population are approximate.

I can just see an alien race stumbling across Moab at some point in the dim and distant future, and getting utterly the wrong idea about the early 21st century, such as it has an approxiamte population of 12....

'Neath paper piles the pencils grow
And lay themselves out row on row,
In the dark that is their place
Erasers, wood and lead embrace
Ne'er seen, but in the morn you know.

Then they are stubs. Short days ago
They lived, were writ, saw letters glow,
Used and were chewed, and now they lie
In darkened drawers.


-- John Armitrage Hennepin; Mongo, Indiana, ca. 1910


I have returned.

Lafayette! I am here!

In paper piles my pencils breed,
Under the darkness of the night,
And where a a single pencil lay,
Three will appear by morning light.

The lead and wood is just as strong,
The paint more new, the point less worn
Than those of their forebear left
Alone until the light of morn.

How comes this work, I cannot say
It seems to me surpassing strange,
That pencils quickly breed that way
Far from their normal feeding range.

Here is no lead, to feed their young,
Or shavings they might nurse upon,
How come they, new and sharp and strong,
To be there, when the night is gone?

Thus do the Muses entertain
Our weary hearts, like God of old,
And tantalize our puzzled brains
With miracles mundane and cold.

Lachryma Mundia,
"Tears of the Ordinary Heart"
Armentieres, 1917

By the by, BWL, you forgot to list spatulas when you enumerated your goals for MOAB. Where to they fall in your platform? Not through the cracks, I hope!

Only if they have lead in them, I suppose; breeding is defeated, otherwise.

I suppse Eberhardt Fabers never have that issue to contend with.

Pencils breed in piles of paper and pencil holders and in drawers. They're worse than cockroaches.

As I am only a fool , and not actively damned, I shall only add to, rather than complete the list.

To figure out why google is trying to sell us Karaoke, and Jewish music, when we've not mentioned them.

To hunt down the person who first though pineapple on pizza was a good idea, and utilise their clearly enormous talent for stupid ideas.

To understand the fine structure of the Universe, as shown through the Pirates of Penzance played backwards.

Inasmuch as there are currently two "stated goals" threads on the board, I thought it might be time to plainly state the goals of the Mother Of All BS Threads. So...

The Stated Goals of MOAB

1) To promote the development of superior quality rubber hip-boots.

2) To promote an exponential increase in the world's supply of diddley-squat.

3) To provide safe haven and moral support for homeless ilk of all creeds.

4) To determine why BWL has so many pencils, despite the fact that he hasn't actually purchased a pencil since 1970.

5) To let some other damned fool finish this list.

BTW, At some point, a generally numptish gentlemen made a fortune by selling coal to Newcastle. It arrived in the middle of a miners strike. He also sold Fur gloves, coats etc to the Carribian at an enormus profit. Total numpty, but very lucky....

From PhysOrg:



Scientists have discovered something new about exotic particles called solitons. Since the 1980s, scientists have known that solitons can carry an electrical charge when traveling through certain organic polymers. A new study now suggests that solitons have intricate internal structures.

Scientists may one day use this information to put the particles to work in molecular electronics and artificial muscles, said Ju Li, assistant professor of materials science and engineering at Ohio State University.

Li explained that each soliton is made up of an electron surrounded by other particles called phonons. Just as a photon is a particle of light energy, a phonon is a particle of vibrational energy.

The new study suggests that the electron inside a soliton can attain different energy states, just like the electron in a hydrogen atom.

"While we know that such internal electronic structures exist in all atoms, this is the first time anyone has shown that such structures exist in a soliton," Li said.

The soliton's quantum mechanical properties -- including these newly discovered energy states -- are important because they affect how the particle carries a charge through organic materials such as conducting polymers at the molecular level.

"These extra electronic states will have an effect -- we just don't know right now if it will be for better or worse," he said.

Li and his longtime collaborators from MIT published their findings in a recent issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

How strange the night, oh wan the hour,
That sees no bloom or bursting flower
Here on the thread, which 'til this day
Was ever thrown aloft, in play;
And now, like some betrayed companion
SInks to the lowest Mudcat canyon,
And waves the clouds and sly farewell,
As Mom approaches Drop Off Hell.
Oh, no! Good friends, let i'ne'er be so!
Your hearts and minds to Mother show,
And turn your wits to work, and then,
Loving and laughing raise her up again.

Lines On A Piss Poor Poet


Worthy of McGonegal, I declare;
How strange to find his talent rare
And long thought happily, finally, dead,
Raising again its cheerful head
To haunt a later, different time
With equal awkwardness of rhyme
And stilted pace; enough, enough!
The world's well-gifted with such stuff.
But let it be, to each man's choosing
To read what he finds most amusing.
And let us also add, I wot,
To not read what amuseth not.

A keg of spikes--brings to mind the wooden kegs that used to be along the railroad track at our remote lake cabin when I was a child. The rail started with the coal mining and logging in the area and became a regularly used trunk line for many years. We parked beside the road and walked down a path, across the railroad tracks, and into our back gate to the cabin on Lake Whatcom. As children we used to play around the tracks (only two trains in the morning and two in the evening, as I recall, so it was pretty safe). We'd pick up old spikes and take a barrel or two home if they weren't picked up after track work.

So, naming a beverage keg "Spike" might be a great blast from the past, but I'm afraid that consuming any of it would leave me fit to be tied.
