    I think what we are seeing here is a demonstration of the Heisenberg Principle, which states that if a cat is in a box, and you open it, it may be dead or it may jump out and claw you in the face. This is related to the Jack-in-the-Box principle, whereby you may eat a hamburger that kills you, or you may catch e-coli.

    In other words, once a particle's momentum is known, you cannot know its position, and vice-versa, meaning that the only way to know is not to know, or moreso that un-knowing is knowing, and that the unknown is all that one needs to know. Ipso facto, ignorance is the highest state of being.

    How do I know this? Because I don't.

    I've been thinking about it for quite a while now and I think I may do it. Has anyone here done it and can you give me a few pointers? Try to be specific.

    This Bear HAS done it. It was quite interesting, although many consider it unethical and many lawyers would say it is not legal, unless of course you can get that one waiver.

    The thing with doing that thing is that the other thing usually has to be done first, unless that other guy did his thing first, which negates the purpose.

    I've got the waiver and the equipment but the timing may not be quite right. I'm inclined towards sidereal but solar may be adequate.

    Speaking of balderdash.....

    One hen

    Two ducks

    Three squawking geese

    Four limerick oysters

    Five corpulent porpoises

    Six pair of Don Alverzo's tweezers

    Seven thousand Macedonians in full battle array

    Eight brass monkeys from the ancient sacred crypts of Egypt

    Nine apathetic, sympathetic, diabetic, old men on roller skates with a marked propensity towards procrastination and sloth

    Ten lyrical, spherical diabolical denizens of the deep who hall stall around the corner of the quo of the quay of the quivery, all at the same time.

    Have you been there and how was it ?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I tried to go there but got lost. I think I was going in circles but it's hard to tell in the fog.

    Yeah, I had one just like that, in a way, but it's gone now, I think, except for this, and the rest of it. Or was that yesterday the other day? Anyway, it always happens to me sometimes, like the other time. Remember?

    See, here's the thing - if you keep doing things the same way it not only gets old hat quick but it makes you predictable. Try to keep 'em off balance by doing unexpected things once in a while. That'll keep them on their toes.

    Actually, this thread could have been created as a tribute to my general inability to recall movie titles, actor's names, and ...well, you know, stuff like that. Cuz I'm ....well, ya'll know.

    No, the sin you're famous for is including wayyy more specificity and explanatory detail than mere mortals require. Kinda the opposite, really, of Teh Vague Thread.
