There you go again, turning your attention away from the Source, the Fountainhead of all goodness, the true Origins of Your Life, the Mother of all Our BS.

Rapaire would never stand for this if he had not run off to sea. Oh, woe is me....

Oh Mother, kindly shine on me,
And I will kindly bear toward thee!
We will guide your trembling footsteps
To post 4-5-5-3.
Age is yours, and so is beauty,
Wisdom yours, of all the most;
Thus we travel forth together,
Unto the 5000th post!!!!

Oh Child, too long I've watched you crawl,
through galaxies too vast to trawl!
Your tentative steps towards cat heaven
To post 4-5-5-7.
Youth is yours, or so you boast,
Innocence, an angel's host;
Thus we travel forth together,
Through MOAB and life's tawny weather!

After long, exhaustive search and great effort, I have found a poem suitable for inclusion in this immortal thread. I cannot claim it as my own: It is by that great poet and writer of songs, Anonymous.






Love

There's the wonderful love of a beautiful maid,
And the love of a staunch true man,
And the love of a baby that's unafraid-
All have existed since time began.
But the most wonderful love, the Love of all loves,
Even greater than the love for Mother,
Is the infinite, tenderest, passionate love
Of one dead drunk for another.

Love

There's the trembling love of a fearful man,
And the love of a fiery women,
And the love of a hamster that's unafraid-
All have existed since time began.
But the most wonderful love, the Love of all loves,
manifested from Earth by the Mother,
Is the infinite, tenderest, passionate love
Of one groundhog for another.

The love obv the groundhogs, .....Now this is what it's all about...this is truely bullshit. I'm so glad this thread is steering itself back on course.

Last nite I fried a burger on a stove and dumped a can of Hormel chili in with it.....Delicious. I was thinking at the time "If only I had some celery, carrots and a fatass groundhog to go with this, it would truly be a meal fit for a Khing...."

Later, I fell into deep sleep and dreamed of being carried off to the Panhandle by high winds. By some chance I dropped into Bee DubyaElls camp where he was grilling groundhogs on spits in his kiln. I said,"Brother, can you spare a dime?" He said, "No, but try some of this gopher."

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read,
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed,
And on the pedestal these words appear:

Look upon my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Perhaps now would be a great time to institute the MOAB Online Auction! Think of the throngs who would would pay good money for some MOAB plastic lawn chairs shat upon by MOAB Buzzards! We have much MOAB memorabilia to offer! We have letters from Rumsfeld; words of wisdom from Harry Lee Wigley; poems of grand inspiration from many of MOAB's own MOABites! We have massive untapped resources which can provide more money than Sir Rap promised to give the Etherial Kingdom of Mississippi (but never gave!) HAW!!! We can finally afford that 1952 Chevy DeLuxe that we've been lusting over!!
Hell, we can probably make a million just off of Sheeney & Shiney Knause's brilliance! And the Penelope Papers would top off two mill easily!

And, HEY!! We got the world's best Promo Man right here in MOAB!! Remember his excellent work on the Mudcat CD project? Does "Flood Dick" ring a bell?

YES! Could a more faithful & enthusiastic MOABite than Amos be found? NO!!

Yes & there is more! The MOAB intelligencia (with mental giants such as LH, BWL, Sir Rap, SRS et al) can choreograph this thing so wonderfully that Ebay will never khnow what hit'em!

When it's light tomorrow I'll go see how many there are and in what kind of shape they're in (I believe in caveat emptor, but also in full disclosure of condition!)

I have a nice glass of wine here next to the computer, but I don't plan to catch up with you. I hope, giving your suggestion a sober reading, that the birdhouses are sort of like what you have in mind.

Went bounding along on the tip of her tail,

4600, i give unto you
as well as some ideas on which to chew....

WHEN we look to the individuals of the same variety or sub-variety of our older cultivated plants and animals, one of the first points which strikes us, is, that they generally differ much more from each other, than do the individuals of any one species or variety in a state of nature. When we reflect on the vast diversity of the plants and animals which have been cultivated, and which have varied during all ages under the most different climates and treatment, I think we are driven to conclude that this greater variability is simply due to our domestic productions having been raised under conditions of life not so uniform as, and somewhat different from, those to which the parent-species have been exposed under nature. There is, also, I think, some probability in the view propounded by Andrew Knight, that this variability may be partly connected with excess of food. It seems pretty clear that organic beings must be exposed during several generations to the new conditions of life to cause any appreciable amount of variation; and that when the organisation has once begun to vary, it generally continues to vary for many generations. No case is on record of a variable being ceasing to be variable under cultivation. Our oldest cultivated plants, such as wheat, still often yield new varieties: our oldest domesticated animals are still capable of rapid improvement or modification.

It has been disputed at what period of time the causes of variability, whatever they may be, generally act; whether during the early or late period of development of the embryo, or at the instant of conception. Geoffroy St Hilaire's experiments show that unnatural treatment of the embryo causes monstrosities; and monstrosities cannot be separated by any clear line of distinction from mere variations. But I am strongly inclined to suspect that the most frequent cause of variability may be attributed to the male and female reproductive elements having been affected prior to the act of conception. Several reasons make me believe in this; but the chief one is the remarkable effect which confinement or cultivation has on the functions of the reproductive system; this system appearing to be far more susceptible than any other part of the organization, to the action of any change in the conditions of life. Nothing is more easy than to tame an animal, and few things more difficult than to get it to breed freely under confinement, even in the many cases when the male and female unite. How many animals there are which will not breed, though living long under not very close confinement in their native country! This is generally attributed to vitiated instincts; but how many cultivated plants display the utmost vigour, and yet rarely or never seed! In some few such cases it has been found out that very trifling changes, such as a little more or less water at some particular period of growth, will determine whether or not the plant sets a seed. I cannot here enter on the copious details which I have collected on this curious subject; but to show how singular the laws are which determine the reproduction of animals under confinement, I may just mention that carnivorous animals, even from the tropics, breed in this country pretty freely under confinement, with the exception of the plantigrades or bear family; whereas, carnivorous birds, with the rarest exceptions, hardly ever lay fertile eggs. Many exotic plants have pollen utterly worthless, in the same exact condition as in the most sterile hybrids. When, on the one hand, we see domesticated animals and plants, though often weak and sickly, yet breeding quite freely under confinement; and when, on the other hand, we see individuals, though taken young from a state of nature, perfectly tamed, long-lived, and healthy (of which I could give numerous instances), yet having their reproductive system so seriously affected by unperceived causes as to fail in acting, we need not be surprised at this system, when it does act under confinement, acting not quite regularly, and producing offspring not perfectly like their parents or variable.

Sterility has been said to be the bane of horticulture; but on this view we owe variability to the same cause which produces sterility; and variability is the source of all the choicest productions of the garden. I may add, that as some organisms will breed most freely under the most unnatural conditions (for instance, the rabbit and ferret kept in hutches), showing that their reproductive system has not been thus affected; so will some animals and plants withstand domestication or cultivation, and vary very slightly perhaps hardly more than in a state of nature.

A long list could easily be given of 'sporting plants;' by this term gardeners mean a single bud or offset, which suddenly assumes a new and sometimes very different character from that of the rest of the plant. Such buds can be propagated by grafting, &c., and sometimes by seed. These 'sports' are extremely rare under nature, but far from rare under cultivation; and in this case we see that the treatment of the parent has affected a bud or offset, and not the ovules or pollen. But it is the opinion of most physiologists that there is no essential difference between a bud and an ovule in their earliest stages of formation; so that, in fact,'sports' support my view, that variability may be largely attributed to the ovules or pollen, or to both, having been affected by the treatment of the parent prior to the act of conception. These cases anyhow show that variation is not necessarily connected, as some authors have supposed, with the act of generation.

Seedlings from the same fruit, and the young of the same litter, sometimes differ considerably from each other, though both the young and the parents, as Muller has remarked, have apparently been exposed to exactly the same conditions of life; and this shows how unimportant the direct effects of the conditions of life are in comparison with the laws of reproduction, and of growth, and of inheritance; for had the action of the conditions been direct, if any of the young had varied, all would probably have varied in the same manner. To judge how much, in the case of any variation, we should attribute to the direct action of heat, moisture, light, food, &c., is most difficult: my impression is, that with animals such agencies have produced very little direct effect, though apparently more in the case of plants. Under this point of view, Mr Buckman's recent experiments on plants seem extremely valuable. When all or nearly all the individuals exposed to certain conditions are affected in the same way, the change at first appears to be directly due to such conditions; but in some cases it can be shown that quite opposite conditions produce similar changes of structure. Nevertheless some slight amount of change may, I think, be attributed to the direct action of the conditions of life as, in some cases, increased size from amount of food, colour from particular kinds of food and from light, and perhaps the thickness of fur from climate.
