    Should nervous people be allowed to play tennis?

    I'm convinced one of the small rocks at the Viking 1 landing site is capable of transforming lead into gold.

    I have no evidence to support this, but anyone who disagrees is a closed-minded government shill who listens to too much Eminem.

    Should thoughtful people be allowed to post to this thread?

    I just KNOW there's a pony under all this manure somewhere! If only I had my tinfoil hat.

    My dirty laundry is plotting to kill me! I know this because at night when it thinks I'm asleep I can hear it plotting with my bed linens!

    If it snowed in Tel Aviv, would they use kosher salt on the roads?

    That one has always bugged me.

    I heard rumors that workers at McMurdo have been sneaking surfboards into the compound, something that hasn't happened since 1964.

    No bathing suits, though, as they do a better job checking luggage for contraband than they do checking cargo.

    People in Wisconsin use wood stops to hold open their doors that are made out of fruitcake.

    Stephen King invents evil things, then writes about them. Anything that grows roots out of their eyes is evil. Logically, Stephen King invented Potatoes.

    And if the Dutch ever invade and start sawing our doors in half, the Badger state will be in for a world of hurt. That's why I'm nervous.

    copyright infringement. I would have started this thread first if you hadn't!

    I'd say that 80% of that is pretty dumb.

    You have good taste! I want everything except pepperoini on mine!

    Besides, the pepperoni contains heavy metal lyrics. Bad for brains.

    There is a radio program on a small local radio station (KFAI) from
    1 AM to 6 AM Sundays, called "The Root of All Evil". It has been on
    for years, but I only learned of it recently while surfing through the
    stations on a super-cheap little pocket radio, while lying in bed.
    The DJ who runs the program is Earl Root. I have a cousin with the
    same name. Thankfully, this Earl Root is apparently not related to
    me. Thankfully, because he is a heavy metal fanatic, and if Hyper-
    Poster here had said "heavy metal" instead of "pop", I would have
    to agree with him, and I wouldn't want to have to do that.

    Here are some of my favorite heavy metal lyrics:

    Gllllithhrrriggg Ngggrthhiggggtttt by Sssnnnllggglelll

    Rourrrrrggglllll snllleetttlllgggghhh! Brourghhhh! Bloughhh! Bbbbrrrufff!!!
    Sgnufffffrrummm, brroughhhh gggggllloooooooooohhhhrrrrrrrr!
    Ggggrrrr glrrrr hhhhhhhuuuuuhhhhh....

    Or maybe Soulfly or Hatebreed.

    Ok well... Tool, it's anyone's guess at times what on Earth Keenan is saying... But then, they also don't print their lyrics out for, I think,, that reason.

    Either way, it's a person of talent that can interpret what's being said

    You weren't expecting that, were you?

    Huh, I thought it might be from the Cthulhu collection, but I never was very good at identifying lyrics.

    I've always loved swimming. Almost as much as I've hated lawyers and the money-grubbing games they and their former-lawyer mentors (called "judges") play as they manipulate human emotions for profit.

    Then again, I've also long been a Heinlein fan, who once put forth that as of a certain date, lawyers ceased to exist.

    Am I raining on anyone's parade? Heaven help me if I am! May the Lord himself help me if I'm not.

    Contradiction in terms?

    I think not. I still love swimming and can still hold my breath for more than two minutes underwater.

    Thus, Van Rijn, I like taking long walks off of short piers, particularly when the water is deep, the waves are high, and the water temps are warm.

    I'll play for hours!

    And win at sharks and minnows 98% of the time, even with "kids" (adults, but relative to me...) half my age.

    Love it. I love it. Gotta love it!

    When the dust is settled, though, I should have been a rescue swimmer rather than what I chose to do.

    The short phrase "tundra kebabs" flitted into my head a minute ago from nowhere. Will the person sending the message please explain?

    Ah. Perhaps you are dumb. Or maybe a tundra kebab.
