Rapaire and Amos, it isn't "rope" theory you should investigate, but "Knot Theory and it's Ramifications." (Don't ask me how I came across this site--it was a serendipitious discovery and looked so interesting I make a bookmark).

Crocky, I do hope that you didn't feel that oral sex wasn't a sexual act. 'Cause if you did and if you did, you won't anymore.

Yves Klein once said that "we can only conquer Space by impregnating it." Immediately thereafter he dove out a window.

In a weak moment I had sex with an alligator yesterday. I am so ashamed! I never thought I was capable of that sort of cross-species miscegenation, but it just happened in the heat of the moment. It may have been a reaction to Hurricane Charley. At the time it seemed so perfect, but in retrospect I am tortured with regret. How can I face my family and friends? What should I do? Will this blot on my soul haunt me for all my remaining days? The storm winds outside are lessening now, but the storm inside my fevered conscience rages on!

Why, shucks and durn, I'm jist a-doin' what I was trained ta do: answer questions that folks might ask, provide the information they might seek, and never, ever to say "Gee, that's the stupidest thing I've heard all week -- your brains on vacation or what?!"

MOAB men and women all, this Rapaire is wondrous kind, a scholar and a gentlemen!! Here I went in my typically sloppy fashion and posted full of typos one of the most obscure and tantalizing questions ever to torment a human being, one which has haunted the race of men since the earliest days of civilization in all its several cradles...and what does this Rapaire do? I will tell you, brethren under the Sign of the MOAB -- he ANSWERS it!!!!!!

This guy is too much, I tell you. Wherever you in his travels should him meet, do you, I charge you, serve him one dark stout for me, in recognition of his deep-bred excellence!

Perhaps an extension of string theory. Rope Theory -- intergalactic ropes of "stuff" that we could use to pull ourselves along from place to place. Ropes of gravitons, maybe, all strung out along interstellar and intergalactic paths between stars and galaxies, the ropes caused by the distortions that mass produces (see "rubber sheet" examples of the Relativity Theory) and similar to what happens to the bedsheets when you toss and turn all night (as mass does -- planets and suns rotating, etc.).

Or just punch through the fabric of those "wrinkled sheets" to get to where you want to go.

You can get to Pluto in about a week if you continuosly boost at 1G for half the distance -- you can figger it out, it's like that old "how long will it take to go x miles if you're going y mph?" problem, only a little more complex.

Concerning the Horrible Storms Bearing Down on FLorida:

Charley and Tropical Storm Bonnie, which moved ashore Thursday in Florida's Panhandle with lighter winds and less rain than expected, also bring the potential of heavy rains this weekend from Georgia to New England as they move up the Atlantic seaboard.

Emergency management officials asked about 1 million people, mostly in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, to leave flood-prone areas as Charley closed in. Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater are the major population centers in the region.

All residents of MacDill Air Force Base, on a peninsula in Tampa Bay, were ordered out, with only essential personnel remaining. MacDill is home to U.S. Central Command, the nerve center of the war in Iraq

I am at a conference in Wenatchee, Washington. It is hot outside, there are wildfires a scant 20 miles away. So I haven't posted for a little while, 'cause I had to get here to do it.

1. I think we should have bumper stickers made. We can sell them to other 'Catters and suchlike depraved people and other (i.e., non-Catters, or the Great Unwashed) will think that we actually made such a trek. Or tee shirts. Tee shirts could add "Stage Crew" or something.

2. I was never nine years old. I went from 8 to 10 without stopping. This caused severe psychological damage, as well as messing up my school records. It still continues to haunt me.

4302 has been mine since the MOAB birth! 4302 has special meaning for me! 4+3+0+2 =9! I was 9 years old in 1961 which, added = 17,which added = 8!

I was 8 in 1960 which was the year of Kennedy's election, & Kennedy was Irish which I am not! But. . . 7 years after 1960 there was 1967 & the summer of Love which I missed, being a 14 year old kid who had not heard of Kerry or Bush yet & had yet to lose my virginity. Nor had I done acid which eventually led me to post the original MOAB message! So you can see the significance of 4302!

Yes!!! Three more glorious and Shatneriffic links to add to my William Shatner file on my favourites list! Thanks, guys.

Now...I have a solution to the garage door problem, Rapaire. A permanent and elegantly simple solution. Here's what you do, Rapaire:

1. Get a professional carpenter to assist you.

2. Stand immediately in front of the garage door, either facing it or with your back to it. If facing, your nose should lightly touch the door. If looking outward, your back should lightly touch the door.

3. Carpenter traces an outline carefully around your body on the lowered door with a marker pen.

4. You get out of the way now, and the carpenter cuts the shape of your body neatly out of the door, and then finishes off any ragged edges with an attractive edging material in an appropriate color.

5. Presto! You now have a garage door that will NOT hit you if you should happen to be walking under it when it lowers!

6. In fact, you will be able to walk right through quite freely even WHEN the door is lowered! This is highly advantageous if you just want to go in and out of the garage, but do not need to move the car. Think of the energy that you will save by NOT having to activate the door opening and shutting machinery. Your electrical bill will be noticeably lower at the end of 1 year.

7. Fine tuning: It is wise to allow a little extra room around the edges of the opening in the door, in case you don't step in exactly the right place while passing through, so be sure to instruct the carpenter to cut out your shape leaving an extra inch or two around the outline. It is also handy to paint a set of footprints on the driveway showing exactly where to step when entering and leaving. This in fact is a foolproof method to avoid getting conked by the door EVEN if your wife is lying in wait TRYING to conk you with it.

8. If you plan to wear a hat sometimes, have the shape of the hat added into the cutout, at the top.

Many people have resorted to this simple method of garage door safety and beautification in beautiful Lakeland Orillia.

Now, I just thought of something that would give the TSA fits. And it's all SRS's fault.

Let's suppose that ol' Bee Dubya started a Mudcat Tour. He loads on up and swings West toward Texas. Along the way a 'Catter or two from points in between joins him. Now we've got, say, two vehicles. When he gits to TX, SRS joins the throng and they continue West, pickin' up 'Catters and maybe droppin' a few off as they go. Through New Mexico, into California. Ol' Amos and Barky join up in San Diego or somewhere and the whole string heads North. They pick up folks in the Bay Area and up in Northern California, open mike and Joe Offer and others. Up to Portland and Seattle -- Miken, Deckman, Don Firth and all. By now the convoy is about a hundred vehicles long. Up to Alberta, pick up brucie, down to Western Idaho for Clint Keller and then East for Rangeroger, down here and I'll join up. Over Eastwards to Wyoming for Wyowoman and Sorcha and such and then Eastward Ho! Pick up Art Thieme in Illinois, and even Martin Gibson in Chicago (where we all ENJOY hot dogs). Of course, there's Big Mick and Co. in Michigan.

In the meantime, Kendall and Bat Goddess and Curmudgeon and MMario and the rest are heading Westward from Maine and suchlike places. Seamus and all them other DC-area 'Catters head Northeast, ol' Bobert and DougR and Tweed and Khandu and CarolC head eastward.

Now we got these mighty columns comin' from the West and the South and the North. Folks up in Ontario, folks like Little Hawk, from another column, heading towards the warm southern climes.

To do this right, airplanes start arriving in Philadelphia from Australia and England and South America and Japan and Ireland and Belgium and France and Germany and all them furrin countries. Icelandic brings in Skarpi and his lot. And on a given day, everyone descends on West Chester, Pennsylvania and eats Max out of house and home!

Screw them wimpy Kerouacs and Pynchons and folks! This here's the International Mighty Mudcat Mystery, Music, Drinking, Selling & Busking Tour! (The IMMMMDS&BT for short.)

Yeah, I ain't mentioned everyone, but you know who they are and where they'd join the caravansary.

I'd like to see your pottery make a Mudcat tour, BWL. Let us know if you think you'll swing through Texas sometime. I can't guarantee that I can afford to buy any (I have it coming out of my ears after inheriting much of my Dad's collection) but I always like to look at it. You could camp out here in the spare room and sell them at the Main Street Festival (late April, early May) in Fort Worth.
