The squid had spotted an identical pair of bagpies in very short shirts, and has been trying to seduce them all evening.....

Or a giant squid. . . Hmmmm. Has anyone been over to check up on the folks at the tavern? Did the squid get fried via toaster shock in the hot tub, or did he escape (8-armed and dangerous) from that sticky situation he found himself in?

Does one suppose it is mere coincidence that Dean Moriarty was a pseudonym for Neal Cassidy who was the guy who drove the bus of which Kesey said "You're either on the bus or off the bus." in The Electric Kool-aid Acid Test? Nah! No such thing as coincidence.

Well, Duh Glad you made the connection!

Bunn - Spinning a slegehammer in the air and catching it by the handle was one of the things I was really good at. I could make it spin ten, fifteen, twenty times and catch it by the handle every time. Never missed. Requires intense concentration and lightning reflexes. Not a pastime for the Flamenco Teds of the world.



WHOA!!! What in the fuck was that???

Oh, yes. DO go up into the attic. Oh yes, please. It gets so, so, lonesome up here and I get so very, very hungry for human, ah, companionship.

Make sure you check in with MOAB when you get back so that we know you aren't writhing in agony somewhere in the insulation

Tomorrow I have to go up in the attic at work and take pictures. People go there very rarely, and this will be my first time. To get there you have to climb up a ladder into a very small storage space, and then climb again up through a trapdoor. The last person who went up there was the guy who added antifreeze to the fire sprinkler system. He said it was full of blown-in insulation and dust. I'll be wearing a paint-spray mask and a hard hat and old clothes. I have to to this so that I can take pictures of the roof for the Historical Commission. Later on I'll have to climb up on the roof again so that I can take some more pictures of the outside of the roof. That's the roof on the old building, of course. It's cedar shingles and the outside layer is 50 years old; the one under it probably dates from 1907. I want to replace it with a look-alike that won't burn, but I'll need about thirty grand to do it, so it anyone wants to help a lovely old building that's on the National Register just PM me and I'll tell you where to send the check. Mind you, I don't think that old roof is leaking -- it's just that this is a pre-emptive strike. But the Historical Commission has money and access to even more money and why shouldn't they spent it on my library? So tomorrow I'll climb up into the attic and take pictures, even though this is probably one of the last things I really want to do. I really want to stay home and get paid big money and have great benefits, but I'm told that that isn't likely to happen, so tomorrow I'm going to climb up into the attic.

I thought you all should know.

Does one suppose it is mere coincidence that Dean Moriarty was a pseudonym for Neal Cassidy who was the guy who drove the bus of which Kesey said "You're either on the bus or off the bus." in The Electric Kool-aid Acid Test?

From the Random Essay generator:

An essay on B.S. Generation

To delve deeply into B.S. Generation is an exciting adventure. Underestimate B.S. Generation at your peril. While much has been written on its influence on contemporary living, B.S. Generation is not given the credit if deserves for inspiring many of the worlds famous painters. Often it is seen as both a help and a hinderence to the upper echelons of progressive service sector organisations, who form the last great hope for our civilzation. Hold onto your hats as we begin a journey into B.S. Generation.

Social Factors

Society is a simple word with a very complex definition. The immortal and indispensable phrase 'honesty is the best policy' [1] was clearly refering to the impact of B.S. Generation on today's society. A society without B.S. Generation is like a society without knowledge, in that it cleary plays a significant role amongst the developing middle classes.

Status, Security, Fame - B.S. Generation, all revolve around this 'golden fleece'. It breaks the mould, shattering man's misunderstanding of man.

Economic Factors

Our world is driven by supply and demand. We will study the Simple-Many-Pies model, a lovely model.
Oil
Prices        


B.S. Generation

There are a number of reasons which may be attributed to this unquestionable correlation. My personal view is that oil prices plays in increasingly important role in the market economy. Many analysts fear a subsequent depression.

Political Factors

Politics - smolitics! Comparing international relations since the end of the century can be like observing B.S. Generation and former Wolves striker Steve Bull.

In the words of style icon Bonaventure Lionel Forbes Dickinson 'You can lead a horse to water, big deal.' [2] He was first introduced to B.S. Generation by his mother. Perhaps the word which sums up the importance of B.S. Generation to politics is 'participation'.

One thing's certain. The Human species liberally desires B.S. Generation, and what's more human than politics?
Conclusion

To conclude B.S. Generation deserves all of the attention it gets. It enlightens our daily lives, applauds greatness and figures show it's a winning formular.

Here with the final word is Hollywood's Courteney Morissette: 'I love B.S. Generation? Yes! Hurray for B.S. Generation!' [3]

For Rapaire, who is the Grammar of All MOAB:

There are schemata lexeos and schemata dianoeas, that is, figures of words and of senses, but the schemata dianoeas are for the orator, the schemata lexeos pertain to the grammarian. And though there are so many of them, there are of all of them only 17 you need, of which these are the names: 1. prolepsis, 2. zeugma, 3. hypozeuxis, 4. syllepsis, 5. anadiplosis, 6. anaphora, 7. epanalepsis, 8. epizeuxis, 9. paronomasia, 10. schesis onomaton, 11. parhomoeon, 12. homoeoptoton, 13. homoeoteleuton, 14. polyptoton, 15. hirmos, 16. polysyndeton, 17. dialyton.

1. Prolepsis is the foretelling (Vorwegnahme; presumption) of things which (do not) follow the regular order, such as: continuo reges ingenti mole Latinus (Aeneid 12.161) `Then the kings ride forth, Latinus in mighty pomp ...'

2. Zeugma is subsuming under one verb various phrases properly joined to it, as: Troiugena interpres divum, qui numina Phoebi, qui tripodas, Clari lauros, qui sidera sentis (Aeneid 3.359): `O son of Troy, interpreter of the gods, who knowest the will of Phoebus, the tripods, the laurel of the Clarian, the stars ...'

3. Hypozeuxis is a figure contrary to the above, where various verbs are joined to one clause, as: regem adit et regi memorat nomenque genusque (Aeneid 10.149) `He approached the king and announced to the king his name and his race.'

4. Syllepsis the bringing together of different clauses by one word, as _hic illius arma, Hic currus fuit_ (Aeneid 1.15 f.) `Here was her armour, here her chariot.' This scheme is so common that it occurs not only through parts of speech, but also by their accidents (characteristics). It is also syllepsis when singular words are joined by a plural verb, as: sunt nobis mitia poma, castaneae molles et pressi copia lactis. (Eclogues 1.80 f.) "We have ripe apples, soft chestnuts and a wealth of pressed cheese."

5. Anadiplosis is the repetition of words from the end of one verse at the beginning of the next, as: sequitur pulcherrimus Astur, Astur equo fidens. (Aeneid 10.180) `Then follows most beautiful Astur, Astur relying on his steed'.

6. Anaphora is the repetition of the same word at the beginning of several verses, as: nate, meae vires, mea magna potentia solus, nate patris summi, qui tela Typhoea temnis. (Aeneid 1.664) `Oh son, my strength, my mighty power alone, / Oh son, who scorn the Typhoean darts of the highest father'

7. Epanalepsis is the repetition of of a word placed at the beginning of a verse at its end, as: ante etiam sceptrum Dictaci regis et ante. (Georgics 2.536) `Before even the Cretan king held scepter and before' {sounds a little like Snagglepuss}

8. Epizeuxis is the repetition of the same word in one verse without any words between, as: me, me, adsum qui feci, in me convertite ferrum. (Aeneid 9.427) `On me, on me, I am here, who did it, on me turn your blade'

9. Paronomasia is kind of like punning, as: nam inceptio est amentium, haut amantium. (Terence, Andr. 1.3.13; Loeb 218) `This is a scheme more of madmen than of lovers' [a very common pun]

10. Schesis onomaton is a number of nouns joined together in a common way, as: Marsa manus, Peligna cohors, Vestina virum vis. (Ennius, 280) `Marsine hand, Pelignine cohort, Vestine machismo'

11. Parhomoeon happens when several words begin with the same letters, as: o Tite tute Tati tibi tanta tyranne tulisti. (Ennius 1.113; Loeb 109) `Yourself upon yourself, Oh Titus Tatius the Tyrant, you took these terrible troubles.' [very often cited]

12. Homoeoptoton occurs when various words end in the same case, as: merentes flentes lacrimantes commiserantes. (Ennius 1.107; Loeb ?): `sorrowing, weeping, shedding tears, commiserating'.

13. Homoeoteleuton is when several utterances end in a similar fashion, as: eos reduci quam relinqui, devehi quam deseri malui. (Ennius, Iphegenia, fragm. 9) `I did not wish to bring them back as much as to give them up, to lead them as much as to desert them'

14. Polyptoton is the use of many cases in various ways, as: litora litoribus contraria, fluctibus undas inprecor, arma armis, pugnent ipsique nepotesque. (Aeneid 4.628) `Shore against shore, water against wave, I pray, arms against arms, may they fight, they and their children.'

15. Hirmos is a series of utterances keeping their tenor right to the end {linking of associated qualities}, as: principio caelum ac terras camposque liquentes lucentemque globum lunae Titaniaque astra spiritus intus alit (Aeneid 6.724) `First, the watery heavens and the watery earth, and the watery plains, the shining orb of the moon and Titan's stars, a spirit within sustains'

16. Polysyndeton is a phrase joined by many conjunctions, as: Acamasque Thoasque Pelidesque Neoptolemusque (Aeneid 2.262) `Acamus and Thoas and Neoptolemus son of Peleus'

17. Dialyton or asyndeton is a figure contrary to the above, lacking in conjunctions, as: ite, ferte citi flammas, date tela, impellite remos. (Aeneid 4.593) `Go, bring flames quickly, give out spears, ply the oars'

Dear God.

I've just run across this true story which has to be about Bee-Dubya-Ell.

He had a large pond in the back, fixed up nice; picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees. The pond was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming when it was built.

One evening he decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit.

As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with
glee. As he came closer he saw it was a bunch of young women
skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence
and they all went to the deep end.

One of the women shouted to him, "We're not coming out until you
leave!" The old coodger frowned, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked. Holding the bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the alligator."
