I seriously doubt he has any balls. That need protecting. anyway.

Too bad I can't affect a Bobert accent in print, Don. "You know we were jus' funnin' w' ye."

Or something like that.

Well, Don, you could look in the index. And the Table of Contents is pretty complete too.

But to save you time and effort, here's a summary:

freds, Ralphs, Khandu, money, Tweed, tweed, Martians, interplanetary invasions, physics, metaphysics, various languages, poetry of all sorts, prose of all sorts, the Idaho Legion, beer, wine, whiskey, whisky, kilts, swords, duels, guns, libraries, bars, jails, gaols, kayaks, dogs, skunks (human and animal), mountains, holes of all sorts, Gluon and the Gluonettes, food, Amos, MMario, Little Hawk, AND A VARIETY OF OTHER THINGS TOO NUMEROUS TO MENTION (sorry, the caps came on).

Hope that helps.

Oh, yeah -- music, instruments, politics, mathematics, logic, philosophies, Stilly River Sage, peace, war, Dadaism, giant squids, Loooooooooong John Sliver, ghosts, the living, the dead, the living dead, the dead living, and other stuff.

And Shatner. Shatner has been discussed here on a few occasions.

He didn't ask, "What has been discussed on the MOAB?", which would be something like asking how long a Moebius strip is up. He asked, "What hasn't been discussed on the Mudcat?". There is only one answer: quatrefolial loess extrusion in natural alluvial fan regions.

I think that's the only one.

But now, by merely mentioning it, it has been discussed. After a fashion. Name it and you create the discussion or at least you create the zone for the discussion.

BTW: They're doing the pledge drive on our local PBS station this week. I watched Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams with Carnegie Mellon University Professor Randy Pausch and it turns out one of his childhood heroes was Captain Kirk. He instead got to meet William Shatner, and it happened when Shatner came to him to learn more about Virtual Reality for a book he was working on (about the science of Star Trek that has actually happened). Nice story. Pausch has since died, it really was his last lecture (pancreatic cancer, which he knew he wouldn't recover from at the time of the lecture.)

If the aerial photos of alluvial loess formations demonstrate a pattern of waves, could you say that loess is moire? If an uncontained wildfire developed there, would the firefighters be smoking moire but enjoining it loess?

Inquiring and enquiring minds want to know.

By the way, we have not yet discussed Caflisch's "Multiscale Mathematics For Plasma Kinetics Spanning Multiple Collisionality" or electron impact ionization of edge plasma constituents and electron attachment of hydrogen compounds. Nothing has yet appeared on Dermasterias imbricata's genome size (the smallest of the echinoderms), nor has anyone discussed A Modular, Open-Source (AMOS) whole genome assembler or even why Amos would want to assemble a whole open-source genome. Is he plotting to create some new race of super-beings, like some mad scientist in a laboratory bent upon conquering the world? And if so, why?

We haven't discussed what it would be like to engage in 30 minutes of unbridled and passionate sex with Woody Allen on top of a grand piano either.


I wonder why that is?

Because, dear Hawk, discussion requires more than one participant, and you are the only one anywhere who has any concept of that topic, thanks to an imagination firmly rooted in arrested adolescence or something.

Oh.

Well, wouldn't that mess up the strings and hammers and possibly cause that big lid to collapse on the participants, causing them to be found flagrantly delicto inside the next time someone tried to play the thing? Wouldn't folks know something was going on by the sounds emanating from the piano? Or is that what is meant by "making beautiful music together"?

Heh! There's always danger in romance, isn't there?

I guess they could put the lid down first. Or they could just have at it with the lid up and take their chances. That would add spice to the adventure. Howard Hughes used to have sex with his girlfriends in the back of his private plane while it was flying on autopilot.

Yes, that was my imaginary brother Hermann. After he was so tragically taken from me I had to make due with my real, flesh-and-blood brothers Tony and Ted. But that was okay, because they got the same Christmas presents I did and they could easily be conned into giving me their desserts and all I had to do was their chores as well as my own.

I had an uncle Bob. He died many years ago, and he and my aunt divorced many years before that so he was no longer legally my uncle Bob, but he was always in spirit my Uncle Bob, so I went to see him when I was in El Cajon, even if it pissed off my Mom. ("He divorced my sister," she said, but he didn't divorce his kids, my cousins, and he didn't divorce us kids who knew him all our life.)

My Uncle Bob served in the navy in WW2 and became a fireman when he got out. After he retired he drove the bookmobile and worked as a janitor at the public library, where he also played Santa Claus for the Christmas Parties for the kids. He's still remembered there.

I think we were talking about Uncle Bobs.
