From: Thomas the Rhymer
Date: 11 Nov 03 - 04:57 PM

This thread is compleatly without meaning. Absolute nonsense is a must... absolutely! No politial analysis is here required, though most of mine, and a few of yours, belong right here... music is far too important to be included in this space... as well as most of the cultural pursuits we so unflinchingly enjoy...

Are you able... are you there
write a fable anywhere!
Is this per tinent you ask
Look at her, she likes the task

Drift away now, no one cares
Sacred cows and souls too, bears
With picknicing, the rest can wait
rejoice and bring naught church nor state...

Have at it! ...and all the best!ttr

Some languages don't have a word for "booger". That's not to say that the speakers of those languages don't have boogers, or even that they don't talk about boogers. They just don't have a single simple word meaning "booger". They have to refer to boogers as "dried nasal mucus" or some such.   

It's similar to English not having a single simple word for the excruciating pain that one sometimes experiences from eating ice cream too quickly. Maybe some languages do. Maybe in some obscure language somewhere that particular pain is called "booger". I don't know.

It's called an "ice cream headache" or "brain freeze" and you can get it from eathing any really cold stuff. Lots of people are researching it -- good excuse to eat ice cream, I guess. If you want to know more, go look it up yourself.

But if cold causes headaches, why doesn't heat? And why not tepid stuff? Why don't we walk around all day suffering from headaches?'

I know that I wonder about this suff. Someone has to.

But Rap, "ice cream headache" and "brain freeze" are closer to "dried nasal mucus" than "booger". While they are descriptive and legitimate they are not simple one or two-syllable single words. Something like "frain", which could be a contraction of "freeze" and "pain" or "frozen" and "brain" would be much more succinct.

Feh. I get sinus headaches. I worry about them. I worry about lots of things. I worry about a shortage of cats and never again being able to buy banjo strings or restring tennis rackets. And if there were a shortage of cats, what would we do with all the kitty litter? Eventually there would be a glut of it, and then mass layoffs would follow. The world would be plunged into a Depression, and the only thing that would bring back prosperity would be a war or a shortage. Perhaps a shortage of wars would result, and then where would we be? There would be nothing worse than a shortage of wars. There would be a shortage of tanks and then what would we store all of the treacle in? And everyone knows that treacle literally makes the world go 'round, since it's the lubricant for the axis upon which the Earth spins. Should we have an insufficency of treacle the Earth could rotate smoothly and would go flying off in all directions or maybe simply stop rotating. If that happened then the Sun might not rise on parts of the British Empire and everyone knows what THAT would lead to! Yeah, I worry about things. You should too.

A young man who lived on the Fijis
did wonder 'where do go the itches?
I scratch and they go
and come back as I know
but I don't know where in between each is.'

In New Zealand, there is a parrot that is so stupid, it has a) forgotten it can fly and b) doesn't know what the opposite sex looks like until they happen across each other at mating time. When this happens the male forgets it can fly and spends all its time hopping round on the ground waiting for the female who is in a tree. The female sits there thinking - 'here I am, come and get me. I'd come down to you, but I can't fly'.

Needless to say, they are quite rare.

I have led a good life full of peace and quiet
Now I shall have an old age full of rum and riot
Yes, I have been a good lad, careful and artistic
Now I shall have an old age coarse and anarchistic

Once I paid my taxes and followed every rule
Banker, boss and bureaucrat thought me a willing tool
I voted Democratic and paid the church its due
Now all those swine will have to find some other chump to screw

Of interest, banks and credit, insurance, tax and rent
Of lawyers, agents, generals and clerics I repent
With this [mono digital expletive] for corporations and scorn for those elected
I shall be an old bum, loved but unrespected^^^

It's meaningless, because it's taken out of context. You know not the crime for which he will swing, the gaol or how it ends. Unless you knew from whence it came. It stands alone in its meaningless form. It surely has more cache then the purple cow chant.

Now you've called someone an oxymoron. Does that mean a moron the size of an ox? Or an ox that resembles a moron?

A rhetorical figure in which an epigrammatic effect is created by a paradoxical conjunction of terms. I'm getting lightheaded. Clearly out of my league-Can't play with the Big Boys. Going home to lament my failings. Thanks ttr.
