Ya know, Ma, I was jist a wonderin' how low they'd let ya fall. Well, I guess I know now. Sure, you wasn't in any danger but still, to be sixth from the bottom...well, I never heard of such disrespect in all ma born days. I tell ya, kids these days don't pay any attention to their elders and betters. Out racin' buggies all night and drinkin' that hootch stuff they get from the bootleggers and before ya know it somebody's wrecked the buckboard or worse. That Amos, for example, HE'S a fine one! You know, he had too much rum one time and Blind Bill slipped him a mickey and he woke up halfway to Santiago on a boat hauling pigs down and guano back. But you know all about him, doncha Ma?

Mom, I am just back from the dentist. He is a nice man, but he did a root canal. I am glad he did it because it felt like my jaw was exploding slowly and now it feel fine. But my face was all rubber and it was hard to find where to eat through.

Anyway, I think people are scared of twenty kay.

Heck, I've been out working - someone has to pay MOM's light bill. And I mowed the lawn at lunchtime. There's this spot between my house and the house next door that is like a solar oven at the noon hour. I thought I'd bake my brains before I finished that stretch of the yard.

I have since recovered. Keep up the good work, there are bound to be poachers hanging out behind the outhouse, just waiting to run up and ring the bell when no one is looking.

We are thirty-nine from the Great DIvide,
High in the mountain air;
And tho' t'was one hellacious ride,
It is all down hill from there.
There's nary a doubt in my weary mind.
None will e'er give up the ghost,
But once we cross that Twenty K,
We will coast, and laugh, and coast.

Night, MOM. Sleep tight. Tomorrow might be a big day.

Whoever hits the big 20,000, ESPECIALLY if it is a poacher, should dedicate a large sum of money to the support and well-being of Mudcat. Just so you know.

I shall not take 20,000. I have risen above such mundane and puerile things, leaving them for the childish and boorish. I shall, instead, content myself with preparing a few freshly-baked muffins for Mother, along with a nice pot of Yorkshire Gold tea.

My "dibs" is now in toss-up.

I already brought her a cuppa Yorkshire Gold this morning--way ahead of you (one of the few advantages of being in a different time zone). It's the house brand around here (until the box sent by a previous year's Secret Santa finally runs out, anyway).

She won't refuse the muffins, however.

Now nineteen nine and seventy, boys,
There's only thirty more,
Until our Mom can drop her hook,
On that blesse sandy shore.
And then we'll all be given leave
To swim ashore and play
With loverly dusky maidens there
Who yearn to fill our days.
And then we'll all drink MaiTais, too,
Sweet as Tahitian morn,
And when we get past Twenty Kay,
A new day will be born.
We'll paddle 'bout and eat our chow
From palm leaves in the sun,
And never have a care or woe
'Til twenty-k and one.

I'll bring the dogs, that will probably take care of any maidens hanging around, dusky or not. The girls (dogs) love attention but tend to scratch folks because despite all of my hard work and training, they jump on people when they want to be petted. Those maidens are no doubt scantily clad, and they won't like dog claw scratches - I don't.

I have only just had a chance to reply to Stilly River Sage's comment the other day as I did not know what a 'Piker' was. Well!!!
In fact, I missread the number of entries on the thread and thought that there were only about 8 more to go until the magic 20,000 and wouldn't it be fun to make it Bubblyrat's name on that one. It wasn't until I'd sent a couple more off that I realised my mistake and had to rush out without explanation. 'Piker' indeed!!

Rapaire:

Please do not mess up my day dreams with your politically correct reservations. We are all adults here, and where there are dusky maidens, there are also dusky, topless boat-boys who dive to thirty fathoms on a single lungful of air and have sturdy, velvety biceps which glisten in the sun, and teeth like mother-of-pearl which makes for heart-piercing smiles; they have flashing deep, deep eyes and long curly eyelashes, and they laugh as readily as an ocean breeze.

I hope that answers your question.

And they wear short flaps, and sandals, and little else, and their muscles peek out everywhere.

Anniecat, name calling is a tradition around this thread--if you take a little time to read the exchanges between Rapaire and Amos and Little Hawk and his avatars you'll see that we have to do something to keep the number growing higher. We get occasional posters who are here solely because of the stature of our number, you might say. The Big Kahuna. Flamingo Ted was famous for this (where has he gotten to, anyway?) and a couple of others sometimes take a swing this way to say hello and see what the topic du jour is.

23 to go now? And Rapaire says he's not in the running? (I don't believe that for a New York minute!) And Amos has created a most interesting island venue. Perhaps the dogs will stay at home in the back yard after all.

"'Euxenia' is a compound word in ancient Greek. The root of the primary word is 'xenos' or guest; 'xenia' is the solemn and sacred code of hospitality one must afford them. Failure to adhere to this code was an affront to Zeus, the most powerful member of the pantheon. The word 'xenia' refers overtly to this generosity, voluntary or otherwise, but just under the surface is the thought that the guest has the potential to be a threat: our modern word 'xenophobia' includes some of this unease. The prefix 'eu-' means simply 'good', but here again the full significance is not derived by accepting the meaning at face value. In the linguistic world of the ancient Greeks, it was often applied apotropaically, in other words with full awareness that the subject in reality embodied the exact opposite of the stated meaning, in this case 'good'. Names were sometimes given in this way in the hope that the characteristics of the place or being would change to fit the name. They usually didn't."

The object of this gem of masterful aesthetic illumination is my dear cousin, who creates beautiful works of art like these:


         Rhegmalogia
Series Intro
Interrogation
Shelf Edge
Sympiesis
Dialogue
Euxenia
Catalog
Euneclasteia
Treasury of the Siphnians

If you go to his site and wend through Rhegamalogia to Euxenia, you will find the piece about which he writes above. I am awestruck at his naming of names, the wispy windy thoughts dancing behind them, and the forms with which he gives them body in bold material form.

As you can see, he wrote his own book on that subject!! :D

In other news this may be very important:

"THE VACUUM STRIKES BACK. Modern physics has shown that the vacuum,
previously thought of as a state of total nothingness, is really a
seething background of virtual particles springing in and out of
existence until they can seize enough energy to materialize as
*real* particles. In high energy collisions at accelerator labs,
some of the original beam energy can be consumed by ripping
particle-antiparticle pairs out of the vacuum.

Sometimes this process is the very reason for doing the experiment, but sometimes
it is only a detriment. For example, in the Large Hadron Collider
(LHC), under construction at the CERN lab in Geneva, a major source
of beam losses (particles exiting from the usable beam) for
heavy-ion collisions is expected to be a class of event in which the
counter-moving ions pass each other and don*t interact except to
spawn a pair of particles---an electron and positron---one of which
(the positron) goes off to oblivion while the other (the electron)
latches onto one of the ions.

This ion, bearing an extra electric charge, will now behave slightly differently as it races through the chain of powerful magnets that normally steer the particles around
the accelerator. Going a certain distance, the modified ion will
leave its fellows and smash into the beam pipe carrying the beams,
thus heating up the pipe and surrounding magnet coils.
Fearing these future beam losses, accelerator physicists have sought
to observe this effect at an existing machine, the Relativistic
Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) at the Brookhaven Lab on Long Island. And
they found what they were looking for, a tiny splash of energy
amounting to about .0002 watts, or about what a firefly puts out.

The RHIC beam for these tests consisted of copper ions each carrying 6.3 TeV of energy
(about 100 GeV per nucleon). According to CERN scientist John
Jowett (john.jowett@cern.ch, 41-22-7676-643) this troublesome class
of events, referred to as bound-free-pair production (or BFPP, the
bound referring to the electron and the free to the positron), will
be much more formidable at LHC than at RHIC. First of all, the pair
production scales as the atomic number of the nucleus (or the charge
of the nucleus, denoted by the letter Z) raised to the seventh
power.

The LHC heavy-ion collisions will use beams composed of lead
ions. The more highly charged nucleus and the larger energies (574
TeV per lead nucleus) mean the BFPP process should be some 100,000
times more prominent than in the test at RHIC. This would amount to
about 25 watts, the equivalent of a reading lamp. That doesn't
sound like much but, when deposited in the ultra-cold (1.9 K)
magnets of the LHC, it could bring them to the brink of "quenching"
out of their superconducting state, interrupting the
operation of the huge machine. "
