I'd go for dispelling gravity. A mass movement on the upward incline to the age old problem of droop.

Only 88 more posts 'til "6789". Unfortunately, that number is of absolutely no consequence in the MOABic scheme of things. The number between 6701 and 6799 that is of MOABic importance is "12". Not "6712", just "12".

"How can the number '12' be between 6701 and 6799?" you ask. Well, it can't. That's why it's so damned important if it does happen!

I may have pointed this out before, but I can prove gravitons don't exist.

Put many objects in a container or bag. Make sure they are all different sizes, shapes, and weights.

Now, after a vigorous shake or drop or just normal travel wear and tear, try to find the smallest ones. Where are they?

On the bottom of the container, of course.

What's up wi' dat?

That's the effect of densitrons, not gravitrons. Densitrons and gravitrons are always playing tug o'war with each other in order to have something interesting to do, and to make up for having no intrinsic will AND being too small to have an opposable thumb.

True, Amos, but don't disregard the influence of tinytons and the even smaller teensytons. There are few things more surprising than a coupled densiton/teensyton pair.

Mom! Rapaire's talkin' dirty again!

And who was that guest asking about hard-ons and lust? Was it a regular Mudcatter, or was it a true guest, and did he read the whole thread before asking that question?

The number between 6701 and 6799 that is of MOABic importance is "12". Not "6712", just "12".

I'd look forward to the number between 6801 and 6799, myself, simply because I would only have to look once, not 98 times. (Don't worry about this. . .the last number that I checked out was "2003" on the bottle of Kabinett. . .)

See? Physicists only thing about sex, sex, sex! P-N junctions. Charge-coupled pairs. Queer quarks. And don't get me started on quantum mechanics! That is the foulest, most degenerate, spawn of the Devil that has ever been concieved filthy minds! Yes! I say to you now, brethern and sistern, that if physics isn't meroved from the schools, our children, our precious, precious children, will learn such shocked and degenerunt things as "spin!" Have you ever heard of the book The Dancing Wu Li Masters? Yes, my sisters and brothers, dancing! Dancing, the cause of consupiscient cognition! Dancing, the git of demons! And who are these Wu Li Masters? Why, they are nothing less than the Chinese, who are at our doors at this very moment, a Yellow Peril enticing our youth into dancing and...yes!...even opium smoking! Have you seen, as I have, a debauched young woman, her life before her like a rose-lined pathway, lying on the rough wooden slats of a bed in an opium den, her clothing disheveled and her mind locke in the fantastic dreams of the opium eater, her virginal temple dispoiled by a lecherous fiend in human form?

And this is what comes from physics, brothers and sisters. Debauch, and the inevitable sinking into sin and despair, and, all too soon for the promise shown and now blighted, into the plunge from the bridge and the unmarked grave of the suicide! Eschew physics, I beg of you, for the sake of your soul and the souls of those you love! Think of Mom, and change your downward path to one of light, and purity, and virtue. It's not to late!

St. Thais was a new one on me...

Thais was a public sinner in Egypt who was converted by St. Paphnutius, brought to a convent and enclosed in a cell. After three years of penance she was released and placed among the nuns, but lived only fourteen days more.

Rapaire, why does your post #6700 say "6699 is a cool number"? You confused your Mom and made me think that was post #6699 and that Susie got #6700. But, look, I've already spent the money on the needlepoint kit so that's what you get. If you don't want it, I'll just give it to Susie anyway. That rifle is very nice, but I'd be afraid you might put somebody's eye out with it. Swords and guns! My, my, my! You know, Rapaire, you really should take up playing the guitar or fiddle or something like the rest of the boys. Maybe it'd help you get over that obsession you have for things designed to inflict bodily harm.

See, Layah, gentlefolk are schooled in arms. A sword, and the ability to use it without poking out someone's eye, has long been the mark of a gentleman or gentlewoman. The sword I just ordered has a simple ambidexterous handle, a bell guard 120 mm. across, and two quillons (rings) inside the guard. It will come with a blunt point, and I'll put a rubber tip on it.

Now, I could file the point to a point. That would certainly liven up the bouts at the Pocatello Fencing Club.

Even though sport fencing has an accident rate so low that the insurance companies don't bother with it, accidents can happen. A Russian fencer, a Major in the army, was fencing in Rome in (I think) 1987. He was one of the best in the world, but the tip of his opponents blade broke and in a thrust the now-sharp tip entered the mesh of the mask AND the Major's eye AND penetrated 17 mm. into his brain. He was on life support for the three days it took the Russian team to capture the Gold. The fencing world was in mourning.

Then there's Peter Westbrook....

The swords I fence with are much too large to punch through a mask if the tip broke off. I somehow doubt that makes them less dangerous, despite the stupid amounts of protection I wear. I tried some foil fencing, but it just didn't compare to the historical fencing I do. In historical fencing I use a dagger in my offhand, so I get two pointy things! The sword I fence with is not so pretty though, being cheap and much used, very dented slightly rusty bell gaurd. I also have a shiny pretty Spanish rapier that I certainly do not fence with. Much too pretty, plus the blade is wrong.

Well, I have to admit that my younger brother took a broken epee and made me a main gauche out of it. He cut away the bell guard and reversed it, so that it formed a U shape with which you can catch and twist a blade out of your opponents hand -- or, since it IS pointed, stick him with the 12 inch blace. The handle is turned walnut, the pommel is an old epee pommel.

He made two others at the same time for the College's drama department -- these didn't have points.

My brother Tony has an even dozen swords; Ted has at least three pointy and/or sharp ones (including a Phillipine beheading sword), a couple sabers, three or four foils, and two epees that used to belong to me.

I only have my cavalry saber and, now, an epee coming. And I only have the saber because my brothers bought for me, and they only did that so that I wouldn't be the odd man out.
