    If Mozart was alive today he would be older than anyone but Paul Harvey. Discuss.

    I asked John McCain and he disagreed, saying that nevertheless, based on first-hand knowledge, Wolfie was one heck of an improviser, but a poor graphic artist, which resulted in his inability to draw a decent Salieri.

    Well, that was the problem. If he had gone hourly instead of staying on Salieri he might have done better.

    And I just discovered a grid leak in my drip pan.

    Some of the threads in OTB are not making sense.
    I mean... I read them. I recognize words.. I even try to understand them (which is a bit odd for me, I must be in rare form. As usual...) but understanding just isn't happening.

    To grok the true meaning of a thread, sometimes one should embrace the senselessness.

    There! They did it just now! It's 3 am my time (I live at -8 zulu) and my laundry is whispering to the quilts again! It almost makes sense to me!

    This thread was evidently started as a reaction to tommac's various "Should Dumb People be Allowed to ..." threads. It is not intended to make sense. I can't speak for some of the other threads.

    I apologize for being serious in this thread. Let the silliness resume!

    We may forgive you, but only if you have pancakes in your underpants. Preferably cinnamon sugar, but boxers will do.

    Chickenman returned, as rhyme was running crampant on the streets of Midland City. One uses a small grass press to astonish the snapbeetles, while pacing agents chide the steaming monster for its importunate borborygms. The result is a sad frenzy of marble-choked apples, which really hammers your nails in. I applied the stamp to my own self, however.

    zero point fields are teh manifestations of quantum planck-level thought processes generated by pseudo-random degenerate states of matter that are realized within boundaries of m-space. these fields are teh key to understanding the eigenstates of 17-dimensional tensors which can solve our energy problems. teh government learned about this by examining records of trasnsdimensionless alien timespaceships that crashed in teh dessert but dont want to reveal teh truth because teh rockefellers and teh rothschilds supress any knowledge that is a threat to thier global hegemony.

    I am going to risk banning by propounding an ATM theory here.

    Automatic Teller Machines were invented by Penn and they create money by using the properties of the electric universe.

    It's true!

    they have to join the "laughing clubs" too besides playing the games.
    causes of nervousness are different, they are co-related differently with an every individual. exam results, loss of excessive weight, not getting well, unsuccessful events in their life etc, there are many reasons.

    Stop confusing the Isuzu with facts and figurines. Your thinly-whaled logic does not apply to my prepositions. Agree, be tense, or pro-Noun you will be soundly verbed.

    Or something like that.

    Maybe he should change his name to Nearly Senseless Nick. Or write a volume on Deconstructionism.

    Fingal is not in his cave. I checked.

    I was listening to Beethoven. At the bottom of the Ninth it's still scoreless.

    For that matter, why is it 'Bay-toven' and not 'Beet-hoven'?

    You really ought to have a look at the Postmodern Essay Generator.

    example:
    . . . .
    In the works of Spelling, a predominant concept is the distinction between closing and opening. The primary theme of Abian’s[7] critique of cultural narrative is the role of the reader as poet. Thus, in Charmed, Spelling reiterates semiotic postcapitalist theory; in Models, Inc., however, he denies the subtextual paradigm of consensus.

    Derrida uses the term ’subtextual theory’ to denote a mythopoetical reality. However, Lacan suggests the use of semiotic postcapitalist theory to modify and read sexual identity. ...
    You get a different essay with each page refresh.

    Blame the Germans. Just don't mention the war.

    I've often had that "should have quit while I was ahead" experience in the lab.
