Bill, I wouldn't THINK of tieing you down. My insignificant emotional needs are as nothing compared to your need to be the man you really are. No indeed! Feel free to go back down to La-la Land (California) and visit Amos and show him the error of his ways. As you know, Bill, I have Amos's street address, which he gave me in a moment of weakness...he was trying to secure a Joan Rivers inflatable doll, and figured I could find it for him...at any rate, I do have his street address and so you will be able to visit him without delay.

I'm sure this will straighten everything out. You may even get to have a chat with Liebenscheiss.

And now, a word from our sponsor, Jiffy Pops!

Yes, folks! Jiffy Pops will rot your teeth quicker than you can say "Jiffy Pops!"   Na-na-na-na-goo-goo-na-na (the Jiffy Pops song)...

Mr. Shatner,

He's far to shy to say this, but Amos loves your singing. If you do get down to San Diego to see him, be sure to sing for him. Believe me, he'll be thrilled. (And no matter what he says, he's really one of your biggest fans. Ask him to show you his paintball outfit.)

Your friend,
Rapaire

Little Hawk:

I have thought about it long and hard, old friend, and I have made up my mind. I am leaving Orillia for good, moving to Los Angeles on a permanent basis, and getting an American passport. I am forced by Amos' insightful grandiloquence to the realization that I have NOT been good for you no matter how much you and I needed each other. Sure, we felt we were helping -- I brought some color to your drab life in the boonies, and you brought some desperately needed admiration to my collapsing esteem. But that's just another name for a codependent relation ship Little Hawk, and sooner or later it could only leads us both into deeper misery.

So, farewell. Tell Amos not to worry, I'll be fine, and I might even get down to San Diego to see him. Maybe he'll change his mind about me if he gets to talk to me in person, now that I have taken responsibility for this situation!

Thanks for everything, pal,

Bill

It's compulsive behaviour directed toward a meaningless end.

Perhaps so, although you are trivializing a very important essay which you failed to discern in its correct perspective because you deemed it a meaningless flight toward the 40000th post. Hidden by that trivial and illogical flight the actual contents of the essay may be the only rational statement made on this thread!

But your Shatner obsession is meaningless behaviour towards a compulsive end. Just as shallow and just as mad. So I don' see much merit in discussing it with you. Sure you can respond with enthusiastic rhetoric about how mad everyone else is, making it perfectly understandable that you should seek to resurrect the bloated memory of a weak-chinned ex-media figure. Make sperfect sense in the midst of the madhouse. But I will have nothging more to do with it (sorry -- "him") no matter how you justify it.

Two insanities do not a sanity make, and you know it perfectly well.

Har! Har! ROTFLMAO! So you're "not talking" to Shatner now, Amos? My God, he's going to be just...devastated. :-)

There's nothing unhealthy about my Shatner fantasies, Amos. But there is something unhealthy about someone posting 19 or so times in a row on one thread just so he can get the 4000th post! Think about it. It's compulsive behaviour directed toward a meaningless end. Meanwhile, el ted is posting to every 100th post he can find on any thread whatsoever. More compulsive behaviour! Then you have people consumed for months by the fanatical drive to make Millard Fillmore the most popular president on an insignificant website that manufactures little plastic toy president figures that talk and wave their hands around!

And you say I'm avoiding reality?????? Good God, man, this whole place is becoming a lunatic asylum. Focusing on Shatner is a return to basic family values and the other virtues that once made this a viable civilization.

Sit down with Herr Liebenscheiss, Amos, and have a good long heart to heart talk. Let it all out. Come clean. You'll be glad you did.

Dibs on 5,000. . . about three months from now? Just in time to creep up on the national elections? There ought to be some really good quality (if extremely deep) BS around by then.

I believe, Little Hawk, that you have hid behind that cheap shag toupee for long enough. Your fantasy of William Shatner is unhealthy, and you know it. If you will not release this aberrated solution and come forward in your own right to confront your problems and thus rise above them, I will have no choice but to ignore the pseudo-persona which you have so clumsily invented to distract people from noticing your difficulties. I mean this with the best of all possible intentions for your true well-being.

So tell your fat little hand puppet to stop talking to me, 'cuz I ain't listening any more.

You are wise beyond your years, CarolC. Now you know how I made it so quickly in Hollywood and collected all those royalties and got rich. Fools wait. Smart people claim their spot in the sun well in advance. I have also reserved the 15,000th and the 20,000 posts on this thread and all multiples of 100 on a number of other key Mudcat threads. I did it quietly, of course, without fanfare. I am now well positioned to rake in the rent on those posts when they occur. For instance, el ted owes me several thousand dollars already for posting to spot 100 on a whole bunch of threads.

What a deal, eh?

Stilly River Sage -

Sir or Madam - I thank thee for your kind words, which bring peace to my heart - if I should still have a heart which, being unbodied at the present, I misdoubt - but the sentiments remain still valid. I find myself most perplexed in that I but attempted to speak with my daughter and find myself suddenly transported over the expanse of 400 years into a future I find difficult to imagine. My gracious host has assured me that I shall be returned unto my proper era within the sennight so that I miss not my natural span of years in the afterlife. The Weather described in thy missive seems most pleasantly warm - though I recognize not the placenames? This 'Seattle' and 'Texas' mayhaps would be in Ireland?

Ka-CHING!!! The 10,000th post, and I've got it.

That's right, baby! Numero 10,000. That's a "1" and four zeros.

Pay no attention to the numbers on your screen, because they don't mean squat. I have just taken the 10,000th post well in advance. I can do this any time I want to because I am a wealthy celebrity who can do anything he wants. In fact...it was easy. I got up this morning and said to myself, "I think it's time to take the 10,000th post on the Mother of all BS threads on that silly Mudcat Cafe Discussion Forum where they idolize me (which shows at least that they are not entirely stupid or without hope of redemption).

It's like renting out a particular motel room. If you want to do it 3 years in advance, no one is going to stop you, are they?

Well, I just took the 10,000th post and that's all that matters.

And there's nothing you can do about it. In particular, there's nothing Amos can do about it. (grin) Amos is one of those people who derives a sense of meaning from attacking public figures such as myself who have made their mark in the world (which he hasn't).

Tear your hair out, Amos. I've got this 10,000th post and there's nothing you can do about it whatsoever. In fact, compared to this post, anything you should decide to post between now and the rest of this thread will be really quite superfluous. This post has it all covered.

I may drop in occasionally to give you all a useful piece of advice or inspiration in between now and the 9,099th post. It depends on how much time I can spare from a full and busy schedule entertaining my adoring fans and writing bestsellers.

Did you read my last one? It's called "Get A Life". Available at all good bookstores and on Amazon.com, so do like it says and order one now.

It was 51 here last night, and it's not supposed to go over 82 today. Unlike Seattle, it's not raining.

Pocatello was noted in a recent book as having the third worst weather in the US. If that's true for a place with four wonderful seasons, the rest of the country must be paradise indeed. The high so far this summer has been in the very low 90s and while we're in a drought, there has been some rain and the wildfire danger has abated somewhat.

Last year at this time over 10,000 acres had burned. This year is less than 200, so far (and so good). This, BTW, is in a county that's bigger than the state of Connecticut (and LOTS bigger if you rolled it out flat).

MM, it was just a typo -- it was "pistol" (figure of speech for male genitals) and "stamina" (endurance in use of same).

Rapaire, all I said was that SRS counts in the normal way. There is a normal way. It is base ten, in one-unit steps. Use your toes. I didn't say there was anything normal about MOAB, I said there was something normal about SRS. VIVE la difference. So I am not going to even begin to go through that contorted flight of fancy of yours, no way, not even for the love of a biker broad.

See, that's the problem with too much relativity. You get totally unhinged and lose all your nouns.

Amos has a pistle AND a Stamen? is this due to living in California? Too much association with snails? Or is it all scurrilious rumour?

I am so confused! It's bad enough time traveling hundreds of years every weekend and I come back to find that MOAB now calculates in multiple bases and suddenly prime numbers have become significant.

Of course I *was* channeling Anne Bolyn at one point this weekend - so who am I to talk.

"...who counts the normal way...."

"...who counts the normal way...."

Amos, Amos, Amos. This is MOAB. There is nothing "normal" here. There is no one "normal" here. Both SRS and CarolC know that. Were you to "count in the normal way" you'd scare both of them off or to death, whichever came first.

And who are you -- or I -- to say what is "normal"? "Normal" to my computer is couting in binary. "Normal" to my nephew Tony (as distinct from my brother Tony) is in base 17 or something -- we had to give the kid a binary CLOCK, fergawdssake, so he could tell time! "Normal" to the old time Mespotanians or someones was in base 60. "Normal" stifles creativity. "Normal" will turn you into an old, old fogey instead of just the old fogey you are (and even though I am older than you, I am living backwards -- being in Idaho and all -- and so I'm a young old fogey). "Normal" will destroy your sense of uniqueness and hence your self-esteem. That will mean that you will start hanging out in biker bars and jails. As them bikers (and by "bikers" I mean motorcyclists who wear leather jackets with flaming skulls or such painted on them) get their kicks kicking the crap out of your bleeding, broken body your self-esteem will plummet like a rock in a dry oil well. You'll drag your poor, abused body over to your Mercedes while the bikers laugh at you. Your self-esteem now all really shot to hell, you'll grab the AK-47 out of the backseat, click 'er around to rock-n-roll, and blast the hell out of the biker bar and the folks in it. The police will come. You'll be arrested. But since your self-esteem is by now nonexistent, you'll be sent to the Mens Sanus Hospital For Terminally Low Self-Esteem And Abnormal Persons, where you'll spend your days on Thorazine and Ritalin and you nights in ECT-induced comas. Eventually, it'll all be over and you'll be released from your painful and miserable existence and you'll find both peace and yourself living in The Canyon amidst movie stars, the terminally shallow, and the glitterstruck. All because you thought that there was something "normal" about MOAB.

Howdy, Bobert. Welcome. The fatted calf is kilt, and it was danged hard to git that li'l ol' Scottish dress on it, too. You let me know if someone tries to kick you in the nuts and I'll have the Idaho Legion take care of them. Them Legion boys 'n' girls have been wantin' to do a good nut stompin' for some time, but only to folks who deserve it and you ain't one of them. Anybody livin' in West VA has been stomped and kicked enough.
