Rapparree is "great" indeed
At writing someone else's screed
And getting Chongo up to speed
And forecasting his fate.
At plagiarism, high or low
And knowing where the commas go,
And digging spouses out from snow
The man is truly grat.

Elevation is an easy claim to make. ;>D

Seriously one of mankind's favorite indoor sports is generating all this arbitrary altitude on completely spurious grounds.

Do remember when the word "great" meant something when applied to human endeavour? Nowadays, it is an ecomium earned by fry-cooks.

The "Papal Bull" is that JPII got beatified. That's the "second miracle" they're looking for, right there.

I just sent an email to a priest here, young dude who studied at the Gregorian in Rome, telling him that "Gaudeamus igitur" was a Papal Bull.

Gaudeamus igitur
    Iuvenes dum sumus.
    Post iucundam iuventutem
    Post molestam senectutem
    Nos habebit humus.

    Ubi sunt qui ante nos
    In mundo fuere?
    Vadite ad superos
    Transite in inferos
    Hos si vis videre.

                      And so on. Look it up yourself.

I'll see if he actually reads his emails....

Fallacy is as fallacy does; although fallacious in name, felicitous in event.

I haven't yet replanted the iri. They're the old-fashioned big kind with blue or yellow flowers. I'd already put in some of the petite "dutch" variety. There are also jonquils and daffodils faintly scattered midst the new shrubbery.

What kind of irises did you have put in, Rap? I have a bunch of different colors down here, but none of the really fancy designer ones. This is the flowers in the yard, not the color of your eye, in case anyone missed the recent mention in this thread. I started to say "earlier part of the thread," but that takes in a lot of territory.

Ooops!! I mixed up two different memories:

"Mammals having a penile bone (in males) and a clitoral bone (in females) include various eutherians:

    Order Primates, although not in humans.
    Order Rodentia (rodents), though not in the related order Lagomorpha (rabbits, hares etc).
    Order Insectivora (insectivores, including moles, shrews, and hedgehogs).
    Order Carnivora (including members of many well-known Families, such as Ursids (bears),[3] Felids (cats), Canids (dogs), Pinnipeds (Walruses, Seals, Sea Lions), Procyonids (Raccoons etc), Mustelids (Otters, weasels, skunks) and others).
    Order Chiroptera (bats).

It is absent in humans, equids, monotremes, marsupials, lagomorphs, hyenas, and cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises), among others.

Such a wide distribution among placental mammals suggests that the bone evolved early in the history of these mammals, and was subsequently lost in certain groups.

Among the primates the marmoset, weighing around 500g, has a baculum measuring around 2mm, while the tiny 63g Galago has one around 13mm long. The Great Apes, despite their size, tend to have very small penis bones, and humans are the only ones to have lost them altogether.[1]

The front of the house is done! An ash tree, arborvitae, all sorts of nice stuff. I have some irises to replant (they've clumped) but after the mulch is down we can move on to the back yard.

And I'm constantly accused of plagiarism!

Because I could not stop for Tech,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And all Technology.

We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My iPod, and my Kindle too,
For his civility.

We passed the school, where children strove
To understand this thing;
We passed the fields of gazing cows,
Which looked like Gateway's thing.

Or rather, they passed us;
The drives grew quivering and chill,
For virus-laden were my drives,
And my read heads soon were still.

We paused before a server room
That seemed all safe and sound;
But then came the shrieking of a drive
As it ground its bearings down.

Since then 'tis centuries, or so it seems
Frustration builds each day
As we await the Service Reps
And head toward eternity.

HEre are Lin in Kansas' lyrics:

Well, the Devil went down to Georgia
He was workin' on a hacker's deal
He was on a roll stealin' PC's souls
Makin' virus scanners reel.
When he came across this young man surfin'
On the Web for interesting spots
And he slid in the wires and turned on the fires
And gave that kid the hots.

Ole Devil twisted and the kid's hand jerked
And without any hesitations
Next thing he knew he was witness to
Unspeakable abominations!
Buns and boobs and raunchy scenes
He'd never imagined before
Flashed across his screen while he turned pea-green
And his jaw dropped to the floor.

Devil whispered soft, "I can show you where
A million of these are.
You can spend your days in a horny haze
With porno movie stars!
All you have to do is buy a new drive
With a gig of storage or two
Load this small pro-gram that takes over your RAM
And let it talk to you."

But the kid was brave and he heard the lure
In old Satan's silky tone.
Though his brain was steamin' from mad wild dreamin'
And his groin was molten stone,
He yanked that plug from the surge protector
Picked up his PC and ran
Straight out of the house (draggin' the mouse)
And tossed it in the can.

The Devil bowed his head
Because he knew that he'd been beat.
And he laid a golden CD
On the ground at the young man's feet.
He said, "You've won this round for sure,"
Then he grinned an evil grin.
"But watch out boy, there's more'n one ploy
To lead you into sin."

The kid picked up the gold CD
And he spun it in the sun.
He told Old Scratch to take a hike
And find some other fun.
Then he broke that CD across his knee
And handed the pieces back.
Said "Take your minions with you Devil,
I'm switchin' to a Mac!"

Shall I compare technology to a summer's day?
All hot, frustrating, and full of annoying bugs?


Show me a river, show me a dump,
Show me a place to throw this piece of goddamn junk....


Yet let me flap this thing of gilded wings
This semiconductor child that stinks and stings
Whose buzz the witty and the fair annoys
Yet with ne'er tastes and is often but a toy.

“Are there any restrictions?”

Other than having a pulse, and submitting a poem about technology in the comments, there are no other restrictions. Anyone that has a valid shipping address or P.O. box anywhere around the world can enter. Lenovo and Ivy Worldwide have partnered to make sure that all can participate.
“How will the Winner Be Chosen?”

The winner of the contest will be chosen at random using the Random.org True Random Number Generator. You don’t have to write great poetry to win, but it sure would be nice to read your best effort! Leaving a comment won’t be good enough, you have to write a technology poem to enter. While you may submit more than one poem, you are only allowed one entry per person, so multiple submissions will only count as one entry. The contest ends at 9pm EST on April 29th, and the winner will be announced the following morning on Saturday, April 30th.

What are you waiting for?"

THe sons of MOAB misbehave,
They pout and make mad faces
But still they know deep down within
They are not separate races;
And with their inner ears, they hear
Their Mother's hypostasis.

It's Mom for me and Mom for you
And "Mother beatific"
For well we know, we will stay true
To her higher metaphysic!


Oh some there are who do not ken
THe light within our mess
Who cannot grok the Inner Truth
Hidden in our BS!
For none's as blind as will not see,
No sin needs more confessing
As not to see the truth within
The bawdiest B.S.ing!

It's Mom for me and Mom for you
And "Mother beatific"
For well we know, we will stay true
To her higher metaphysic!


And so to prove the rights of things
And Mom's light beatific
We only need to point at her
Remarkable statistic!
No thread in TIme has half the strength
Or half the loyal traces
And therefore, friends, a hearty toast
To Mother's hypostasis!

It's Mom for me and Mom for you
And "Mother beatific"
For well we know, we will stay true
To her higher metaphysic!
