it's possible that I am living a complete seperate life - I do tend to get blanks in my memory - and often have a vague look about me - but I don't *think* I'm polaitaly. If I am - I'm in trouble - as I have had conversations with polaitaly - and while I don't mind talking to myself I am disturbed about the possibility of myself answering.

but with 93 (96? - something like that) days to go to the half century mark nothing should surprise me.

It's not your alter-ego, MMario? Are you sure about that? Maybe you've had a recent head injury and have completely blanked out on that side of your mudcat activity?   ;-)

SRS - just to make sure the record is straight - I am not polaitaly - nor is polaitaly me. Though I get a grin every time I see the handle.

I've seen CarolC play accordina with her clothes on, too! More then once! I'd say more - but I liked Jack the Sailor when I met him and don't want to give him a reason to kill me. The calander was fine, but live is better!

Wonderful idea, but ya know we had a song challenge recently on this theme:

Song Challenge 96.

'Course they were using stone sexy gnomes, not Full Size Peter Peckers. Maybe that would make all the difference.

Rustic Rebel, I think you could probably make a lot of money with an idea like that one.

Ha! Amos you little 'practical' joker you. A warming gell would certainly be a far better realistic feel, but would it be as hard as concrete? You just gave me a new idea. Fill them up with cement and let them harden, then I can peel away the latex and have garden full of Playmate Paul Doll statues.

Those were Florida Porta-Potties, Bee-dubya-ell? Well, how about that! They didn't say McGill on the front of them so I just assumed they were some kind of special Suwannee River rowboats or something. The flush-toilet restrooms were very nice though.

RR:

See if you can find something in between, like a heat-sensitive gel, for the sake of realism. Filled with concrete sounds a bit rough and certainly over-optimistic! :>)

By the way, Carol, I forgot to ask if you had an opportunity to try out any of our Florida Porta-Potties while at the Folk Festival. Did you? How do they compare to McGill's? Seats are warmer, I'll bet.

Woah... very, very cool. I can't post much right now because my brain seems to have stayed at the beach (Tybee Island, Georgia) where my body has been for the last week with JtS and Allan C, but which is now at home here in Fort Mitchell, Alabama.

Firstly, welcome to the MOAB, polaitaly. We needed an international presence here, I think (well, more like multi-continental / multi-lingual / multi-cultural, actually, since the MOAB contains Canadians and Australians as well as USAns).

Bee-dubya-ell, I'm sorry we missed your jam session. We just ran out of steam long before everyone else got back from the Arlo Guthrie concert, so we went back to Allan's trailer and got ready for our trip to the beach (and beautiful historic Savannah, Georgia). I never made it to the accordion jam for the same reason.

Mister Fat Bad Actor himSELF?? Visit lil ole ME?? Why, I would be SPEECHless with humbling honor and embarrassment, after all the mean things I have said about him. I will be made so terribly wrong, as he will demonstrate that he is not the lard-ass, conceited mediocre egotistic, self-aggrandizing incompetent idiot that I thought he was. I will have to take all those crude remarks back after such a show of tolerance from Mister Shatner. Wow!!

Of course, if he doesn't show up, you realize all bets are off and a whole slew of adjectives will be coming your way, Little Hawk. This better be gopd!

if you observe a kettle with boiling water to cook pasta ( see related thread), the pasta at the end of the entire process will be slighty different that it would have been, had you not observed it

of course - because everyone knows a watched pot does *not* boil - and therefore the pasta will not be slightly different - but QUITE different - because it really needs to be cooked in boiling water - not -almost but not boiling because it's being watched water- so instead of lovely tasty pasta you will end up more with heat coagulated glue.

Once upon a time there was a poor woodcutter named BillD. Bill D, his wife Rapairetta, and his two children Handsoff and Gretify were starving. A neighbour Amos gave them some intellectual food but Handsoff and Gretify wanted the real thing, so the goat ate the food. Their mother Rapairetta angrily sent them out and told them not to return until they have collected something sensible and edible, like berries. Handsoff and Gretify went to the woods where they come upon the kindly Catspaw who lived in a cottage made of waffle and maple syrup. She invited them to stay for a meal, but then quickly locked them up and started fattening them up with the intention of eating them spread on waffles.

Little hawk and brucie were passing by, singing a little canadian ditty about waffles. They could see maple syrup pouring from the nearby maple trees, and wandered into a little glen, where they stubled across the little house made of waffles.

Help! help! cried Handsoff and Gretify, we have been captured by the wicked Catspaw. They quickly explained their story to the previously unbelieving brucie and Little hawk, who listened patiently. Thanks, Handsoff and Gretify, said LH, we have been looking for that goat for some months now. And they raced off in the direction of the goat, leaving Handsoff and Gretify wondering how they would get away from the terrible smell in the Waffle House, which was sometimes just too much to bear....

It was a trick question!!! It should have read "Explain the correlation between Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, The Holographic Theory of Learning, The MOAB, and Krispy Kreme Donuts." And the correct answer is, "I'll take what's behind door #1! No! Make that door #3! No! No! The curtain! Aw, fuck it! I'll take the cash!"

BEAUTIFUL EDINBURGH
by William McGonagall

Beautiful city of Edinburgh, most wonderful to be seen,
With your ancient palace of Holyrood and Queen's Park Green,
And your big, magnificent, elegant New College,
Where people from all nations can be taught knowledge.

The New College of Edinburgh is certainly very grand
Which I consider to be an honour to fair Scotland,
Because it's the biggest in the world, without any doubt,
And is most beautiful in the inside as well as out.

And the Castle is wonderful to look upon,
Which has withstood many angry tempests in years bygone;
And the rock it's built upon is rugged and lovely to be seen
When the shrubberies surrounding it are blown full green.

Morningside is lovely and charming to be seen;
The gardens there are rich with flowers and shrubberies green
And sweet scented perfumes fill the air,
Emanating from the sweet flowers and beautiful plants there.

And as for Braidhill, it's a very romantic spot,
But a fine place to visit when the weather is hot;
There the air is nice and cool, which will help to drive away sorrow
When ye view from its summit the beautiful city of Edinburgh.

And as for the statues, they are very grand-
They cannot be surpassed in any foreign land;
And the scenery is attractive and fascinating to the eye,
And arrests the attention of tourists as they pass by.

Lord Melville's Monument is most elegant to be seen,
Which is situated in St. Andrew's Square, amongst shrubberies green,
Which seems most gorgeous to the eye,
Because it is towering so very high.

The Prince Albert Consort Statue looks very grand,
Especially the granite blocks whereon it doth stand,
Which is admired by all tourists as they pass by,
Because the big granite blocks seem magnificent to the eye.

Princes Street West End Garden Is fascinating to be seen,
With its beautiful big trees and shrubberies green,
And its magnificent water fountain in the valley below
Helps to drive away from the tourist all care and woe.

The Castle Hotel is elegant and grand,
And students visit it from every foreign land,
And the students of Edinburgh often call there
To rest and have luncheon, at a very cheap fare.

Queen Street Garden seems charming to the eye,
And a great boon it is to the tenantry near by,
As they walk along the grand gravel walks near there,
Amongst the big trees and shrubberies, and inhale pure air.

Then, all ye tourists, be advised by me,
Beautiful Edinburgh ye ought to go and see.
It's the only city I know of where ye can wile away the time
By viewing its lovely scenery and statues fine.

Magnificent city of Edinburgh, I must conclude my muse,
But to write in praise of thee I cannot refuse.
I will tell the world boldly without dismay
You have the biggest college in the world at the present day.

Of all the cities in the world, Edinburgh for me;
For no matter where I look, some lovely spot I see;
And for picturesque scenery unrivalled you do stand.
Therefore I pronounce you to be the Pride of Fair Scotland.


(Shrubberies, glorious shrubberies! Just can't get enough of 'em.)

I tried to eat at a Waffle House once, but I never even got to place my order because all the other people in the place kept changing their minds about what they wanted to eat. "I'll have the scrambled eggs with bacon and toast. No. Make that biscuits. And ham, not bacon. And change the scrambled to over-easy. Did I say biscuits? Could ya make that pancakes instead? And coffee. Black. No, make that cream and sugar...."

But a great deal less uncertain than a waffle house. In fact, a little known probable fact is that the Theorem of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle was first discovered when Schrodinger's cat dragged it into a Waffle House.

The MOAB has gone continental! So tell us, polaitaly, have you performed the sacred duty to be undertaken by all novice MOABites? In other words, have you read this piece of crap thread from beginning to end?

Here's a short quiz:

1) Whose bright idea was this piece of crap anyway?
2) With what common construction site appliance is CarolC often associated? (No! It's not an accordion!)
3) Why are Amos' posts so often indecipherable?
4) Why are Tweed's posts always indecipherable?
5) Explain the correlation between Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, The Holographic Theory of Learning, The MOAB, and Waffle House's recipe for grits.

For all I know, her accordion playing may just be an elaborate fiction though I can't imagine why anyone would want to pretend to be an accordion player. There are so many more socially acceptable things one could pretend to be. Like a leper.
