Home for Random Thoughts

Post by Crackpot »

So I think where does this thread go?

News and suggestions: Not newsy or suggetiony
Politics: No
Philosophy and religion: possible on the first part no on the second
The Arts: Maybe if you're into meta as art
Laffs: they're not always funny
Cars and Bikes: nope
Science and technology: No

Which leaves us with

All our own work

it is that at a minimum
Okay... There's all kinds of things wrong with what you just said.

I had a thought to start us off but putting together that semi coherent opener lost it.

It may have had something to do with my desire for some sort of alcoholic beverage but wondering if it would be a good idea to drive in my current scattered state of mind.

Well I have an offering.

Have you ever noticed that when you take a swipe at a fly on the inside of a window that it flies away to safety? Have you noticed that flies on the outside of the window are not even slightly afraid when you swipe at them?

It’s as if they know they are safe.

But if they are that smart, then why do the ones inside keep walking up and down the window as if they think there might be an opening?

Get them really agitated and they will fly at speed into the window, banging their silly little heads against the glass.

When you take a swipe at the fly on this side of the window, he feels the disturbance in the air around him caused by your swipe. The fly on the other side does not.

They are reactionary, but not complex thinkers. ;)

A fly always flies backwards before it flies forwards.

To keep a fly from flying cup your hand and sweep it a little up and behind where the fly is sitting stationary.

You'll catch it every time...

It took a little practice but now I can killl a fly almost every time.

Why do I subject myself to these shitty "grail" shows in the history channel?

Good question. Why not stick to the only one that matters? Monty Python's Holy GRAAAAAAAAAIIIL!?

Why is it, whenever I go to the bank or post office, there's always a long, long, long, long, queue of old people in front of me?

And what the fuck do they do in there all day?

I had a dream last night that leads me to this random thought.

I wonder if I am the only one that would like to roll around like a dog after a bath... in Crystal Gayle's hair? :twisted: :ok 8-)

Maybe it was that same thought that passed through here.

These thoughts are random.

I don't know if I can do random...

Cripes! It was a dream! A random dream. A random thought! Not a subject to be debated.

Otherwise I would have made it a POLL! Maybe ask you about her opinion on ECONOMICS! And the New World Order! The MOTU. And Burkas and Long hair! :fu

FOCUS PEOPLE! She is Hot! And that is the stuff of my dreams. So bugger off!
