Muddy hasn't actually proven he has sexy underknees, so it's just speculation at this point.

I'm sure Rabble would venture to guess that you have perfectly manicured underknees. However...I'm still skeptical until I see a picture. *crossing arms over chest and tapping foot*

Would you cross your feet and tap your chest instead? Oh, and a pic please :D

ewomack
19-06-2010, 05:15 PM
Or cross your chest and tap your feet... that would involve some interesting contortion that could land you on America's Got Talent... hey, I've seen far worse than that on there... I shouldn't watch that crap... it's like a Big Mac for the intellect...

on a random thought I was just thinking that not trying hard enough to not try too hard seems redundant and somewhat skewed and a bit insane actually. I don't know.. I'll have to read it again in the light of a new morning, then I'll probably be like wtf? lol.

I was also thinking on a different note that I think it's kinda sad when you have to wonder whether a question mark came across the way you meant it to.

I wonder what it would take to transform a forum into a collection of never ending, original, Family Guy style skits. Probably a lot.

Atom
22-06-2010, 02:56 PM
All the members would have to just put on the FG mentality helmet and go. If the helmet comes off the post is removed, FG style only, real life as it unfolds, expressed in a post by post format throughout every thread, pure entertainment. It'd probably never work.

My dad had a sign taped to a candy dish we used to keep on the counter beside the cash register at the TV shop full of those sugar coated mint flavored jelly candies that said; your business is worth a mint to us, please take one. That thing I remember had to be filled about every other day it seems. They went through a lot of mint jellies there. Many people would take more than one, even though please take one was in bold lettering. I guess it just wasn't in us to bold only the word one, especially knowing how much some people enjoyed two or even three and on rare occasion four. I thought the things were kinda nasty myself.

Atom
26-06-2010, 05:49 PM
Yeah, my dad was a bit of a wise guy like that, but we were the only shop for many miles around that actually knew what the hell they were doing so we got most of the biz anyway. lol

I skipped eating today. I probably should not have done that. I suppose I'll live though. I often get a headache when I do that, I'll take some Ibuprofen. I don't need to lose any weight, it's just that I am a terrible shopper and ran out of food early this month. lol

Just a little reaction to a different thread, carry on.

Oh and SmashCuts, I don't know if you've seen that or not but they have some pretty awesomely funny real life stuff. Like guys sticking their heads in between a crock's jaws and the crock unexpectedly clamping shut on the guy's head. I haven't seen anything like that before, I guess people send vids in, that was pretty awesome though, and they seem to be getting a pretty decent collection going there, there's several good ones.

The woman behind the counter tried to strike up a convo with me by mentioning that she'd been to Algonquin Maine which is a logo on my t-shirt. She's not bad really but she seems a little nutty, I probably shouldn't say that though because I got the distinct impression that she may have thought that I was a little nutty too, I mean after all, I did show up to the store pulling a wagon.

You used the word 'ancestors' twice Julien so I have to ask you this; you have seen Futurama I take it, well remember the heads in jars? What if instead of burying or cremating our relatives we could do something similar. Stick their heads and animate their brains and facial muscles to the point where we could converse with them as though they were still alive, albeit a little less active. A family could collect all the wisdom that it could amass over the generations and like a library, build shelves of their nearest and dearest. If we had a problem we could consult them and share our thoughts and worries

I'm thinking it's a good idea, but there would have to be an off switch. What are your thoughts?

It was just some out of the box and in the jar thinking. Sorry.

But the thought has occurred to me numerous times. It is such a waste. All that knowledge, experience and wisdom left to rot. It is almost like we are left to continually reinvent the wheel. Sure we got books and now video and such like, but even so, so very much is lost.

I envision a time when all our ancients could be linked into a virtual world and there they could continue to live and think and feel and contribute to our lives. Knowing your roots is one thing, but being able to converse with your past is entirely new. What could we learn by having those great and not so great minds still here where we can ask them to explain. We could dip in and out of this virtual world much as we do now with the internet.

Sure the thought is a little icky, perhaps like thinking of your grandparents having kinky sex, but that's life. Nobody said it has to be pretty. I guess if you can't cope with the whole head thing, we could just save the brain.

Some have postulated that it might be possible to download a person's mind into a computer one day. I don't see the Jarheads as being much different.
