Interesting. There is nothing in that old statement/question that says that the pot has to be on or near a heat source. I will therefore assume that the pot LH was watched experienced a violation of the Second Law of Thermodynamics by spontaneously heating itself to the point where it melted.

This is a first, a genuine first! The Second Law of Thermodynamics is not, therefore, a law! Entropy decreased, actually decreased! It is possible that, because of this, we can have perpetual motion! The possibilities are endless and to an extent frightening.

If LH would be so kind to write this up as an article for a juried journal he could, possibly, win the Nobel Prize and the money that goes with it.

Holy Snowboarding Christ, it means free energy!! And free energy means the end of OPEC and all that -- and the President of the USA is an oilman! The world as we know it will be changed, changed utterly.

A terrible beauty is born.

Considering that the house burned down from the fire started when the empty pan melted on the shorted-out shell of a stove top, he's lucky he saw anything. Boiling was only acheived when the structure's flames were so hot that the metal began to bubble. Seems no one explained to Little Hawk the concept that the contents of the pot, not the pot itself, should boil.

Yes. I watched one for 17 hours once, and it finally did. It was quite an ordeal, and hardly worth the results.

Time? Or duration? Within a relativistic universe, such as we have, it makes a difference. Time becomes, for example, the "fourth dimension" ("The airplane blew up 643 miles west of Chicago, 238 miles north of Kansas City, 30,000 feet up, at 8:12 a.m. today"). Given the time differentials inherent in Einstein's Theory, you should also make allowances for the various speeds involved. Duration, of course, is not time. Is duration affected by the speed of light considerations of Einstein's Theory? Does duration "speed up" with acceleration, while maintaining a "steady" rate on the control object? Does a watched pot EVER boil?

Amos, I'm an hour earlier than Mudcat time. You're three hours earlier. The day we catch up, the earth will have been squashed flat in the path of an inter-galactic motorway.

Do you have your towel ready?

No. Matter of fact, I don't think I have yet had a dream with Shatner in it...

Gad! That's disturbing. Something is seriously wrong here.

Sorry, I forgot your dibs, and no one else seemed to be around so I thought "whattheheck" and went for it. I even sent some good links (wasn't that a killer jellyfish?).

Maybe you'll be here for 101010. Or 111111. The big next one to aim at is, of course, 6666, unless you want to wait for 5678.

Anyway, no boogers. I keep my nose clean! And there's no such thing as cooties (but I wish I could get rid of the mealy bugs on a plant a friend gave me--it has to live in the yard to avoid infecting the rest of the house plants).

I have some coprolite around somewhere. My brother gave it to me -- he polishes it for jewelry. It's actually quite nice.

Once I handed it to a colleague at work, and when they learned what it was they were grossed out. For the life of me I can't imagine why. Really. It's not like it's fresh or anything!

For durability, you might want to consider awarding a coprolite (this comes from a "fox-like" creature). Or maybe a "bull-turtle" bit of scat would do? Just a thought. Mailing rocks might make the post office happier than mailing shit.

Because the Mudcat Cafe abounds with wit, wisdom, knowledge, intellect, good looks, music, soul, and other good stuff, I have an idea. As I mentioned earlier, I feel that the Best of the Best of the BS should be recognized, and I will personally spring for the Mudcat Cafe BBBS Prize.

The first prizes can be awarded late next August in the AD 2005, after I go to Alaska and get them.

Professionals, such as William Shatner or George W. Bush or Dan Rather are not, of course, eligible. To even be considered you have to be a member of the Mudcat Cafe, registered and all -- GUESTs of any persuasion, either plain GUESTs or fancy ones (such as GUEST Looooooooooong John Sliver, GUEST freds, GUEST The Giant Squid) are not eligible. And the winner must have an address to which the Award can be sent.

The winner will be decided by a committee composed of those most knowledgeable of and suitable to judge truely quality BS, to whit, Amos, Tweed, SRS, Rustic, Bee Dubya Ell, and Khandu. Little Hawk is hereby named as The Official Backup Member.

You guys vote on the winner and let me know, and in late August or early September I'll send the award out, along with a genuine certificate of achievement, printed on genuine bond paper by a genuine printer attached to a genuine computer and quite suitable for framing.

No award will be sent to someplace called "Twillingsgate" or to anyone who has ever lived there.

Such a deal!

Another BS jumping off point! And I beat Tweed to it!

It is easy to demonstrate that dreams often have the character of blatant wish-fullfillments; so much so that one wonders why the language of dreams was not understood long ago. For instance, there is a dream that I can experience at will, experimentally, as it were. When I eat sardines, olives, or other strongly salted foods in the evening, I am awakened in the night by thirst. But the awaking is always preceded by a dream with the same content: I gulp the water down; and it tastes delicious to me as only a cool drink can when one is dying of thirst; and then I wake up and really have to drink. The cause of this simple dream is the thirst which I feel when I awaken. This feeling causes the desire to drink, and the dream shows me this desire fulfilled. It thereby serves a function which I can easily guess. I am a good sleeper, unaccustomed to being awakened by any need. If I can slake my thirst by dreaming that I am drinking, I don't need to wake up in order to be satisfied. Thus this is a convenience dream. The dream is substituted for action, as so often in life.

The Character of a Fugue:


A fugue generally consists of a series of expositions and developments with no fixed number of either. At its simplest, a fugue might consist of one exposition followed by optional development. A more complex fugue might follow the exposition with a series of developments, or another exposition followed by one or more developments. Fugues that are tonally centered will expose the subject without venturing out of an initial tonic/dominant constellation.

This all conforms to the general pattern of BS here. Sometimes a Fugue d'Tweed may consist of so much fine BS that a series of developments soon follow and sometimes the tide is out and the cone is low. Sometimes Tweed is just fugued. Sometimes Beedubz takes a bath, Rapaire gets ripped, and Khandu's Cantati can't get it up.

Right now we are between low and high cone, by the way. High tide and maximum distortion of my brain will occur at exactly 6:24 PM EST. Unfortunately I will be unable to share any of the Top Flight BS that will spill freely from it at that precise moment as I will be quaffing a cold one at the corner tavern. No doubt I will score low with this, but I have not mentioned the Canadian fellow who overacts one time today, and that should count for at least 5 points on it's own!
