MadTapeMan
A legend in my own mind



"Megan and I first met at a party at her sisters.  We hit it off, opened up, shared secrets, and talked about everything.  Around us, the party waned, but we hid from sleep together, talking through the deepest hours of the night.  The dawn found us curled upon a couch, asleep, but still together.  That experience, connecting with a stranger, and falling recklessly in love, is one of life's greatest joys.  Andd now that you're married, you'll never experience it again.  It's the price you pay for everlasting love.  It's a small one but I hope it stings a little.  Anyway, I wish you and Megan the best. . . Hey, man, you asked me to do a toast."

"Of course, in reality, we all know that there will be beer in heaven; and lots of it.  Otherwise it wouldn't be heaven would it.  It's almost not even worth pointing that out but I thought I would anyway, just in case somebody wants to take the opportunity to be offended."

If you fired a gun in outer space, couldnít it hypothetically keep going pretty much forever since thereís no atmosphere? And if the bullet could hypothetically keep going forever, isnít there a pretty good chance that it would eventually hit an alien in the head?

There's no atmosphere, but there is gravitational pull, so no. If we compare the amount of volume occupied by all heads of the human population on earth to the volume occupied by all other solid matter in our solar system, then assume the existance of an alian race in each solar system and a heads to other matter volume ratio of the same order of magnitude, we could say the changes would be very very slim indeed. Furthermore, if we assume that the majority of aliens reside somewhere on a planet and that they would need to live in some sort of atmosphere the chances of the bullet being burnt up in said atmosphere would be very very large indeed. All in all, I would say that there is a theoretical chance you will hit an alien in the head, but that it would be so astronomically small that you'd be better of just shooting weird people and claim they're aliens.

I remember you liking that quote, wich. It's very moving..

"A normal man given a group photograph of school girls or Girl Scouts and asked to point out the comeliest one will not necessarily choose the nymphet among them. You have to be an artist and a madman, a creature of infinite melancholy, with a bubble of hot poison in your loins and a super-voluptuous flame permanently aglow in your subtle spine (oh, how you have to cringe and hide!), in order to discern at once, by ineffable signs - the slightly feline outline of a cheekbone, the slenderness of a downy limb, and other indices which despair and shame and tears of tenderness forbid me to tabulate - the deadly little demon among the wholesome children." - Vladimir Nabokov, Lolita.

I'm really being haunted by this one, by Franz Kafka. It's a little hard to grasp but once it gets to you... Well, I can only speak for myself...
For me, it describes one's own sense of limitation and the feeling of being trapped in one's own body, with only 5 senses enabling him to interact with the true reality.

The trees. /Franz Kafka.

"For we are like tree trunks in the snow. In appearance they lie sleekly and a little push should be enough to set them rolling. No, it can't be done, for they are firmly wedded to the ground. But see, even that is only appearance."

There's definitely definitely definitely no logic to humen behaviour.

It's a well known fact that Hungarians rule.   :tongue:

To Aurora:

Coming from a mycology background of sorts, they say mycorrhizae (the symbiosis of fungi and plant roots) is, in fact, the largest living organism in the world. Essentially, every tree in the forest is connected to one another by mycorrhizal connections, they've found strands of mycorrhizae over 20 miles (32ish KM) long! Some go on to say if one part of a forest lacks a nutrient, mycorrhizae will transport the nutrient from an abundant source 100 miles away.

I don't know about that THOUGH. (or if this contributes to the conclusions you got from that quote.)
