Non Sequitur
« on: Monday December 31, 2007, 05:45:07 PM »
This is meant to be a fun thread. It's a place to come to and post something that's on your mind, or just a phrase that you want to post. No posts should relate to the previous post. It's your chance to post something that you want to post to make others think or just for the fun of it.

Welcome to Non Sequitur>, the thread for deliberate senselessness or sense
out of context, if you will. _Non_sequitur_ is Latin for "it does not follow,"
i.e., it has no connection to that which precedes it.

             The following is prohibited in this thread:

1.) Posts related to any other in the forum.
2.) Any post that would be considered disruptive, a personal attack
    against another Skincell user, or otherwise a flame.

This thread is intended to be FUN. *Join in!*

   *  Don't make sequiturs (e.g. don't carry on a topic of a previous
      post).
   *  Don't disrupt the thread:
      "Behave yourself as you would if someone's guest in real life."

When we understand that there is no up without a down,no over without an under, no good without a bad, no light without dark, no hot without cold, no yes without a no, we understand wholeness, and we cease to be disturbed, distressed, or perplexed by the illusion of anything less than wholeness.

  So where do you go to find a researcher who is intelligent, imaginative, skilled in the use of computers, devoted to discovering the truth, and knowledgeable about science, technology, history, and literature, and who usually works for dirt and gets credit for nothing? After lunch I drove to the city library on Main street and asked the reference librarian.

The widget in a can of John Smith's Extra Smooth is very cleverly designed to produce the perfect pint.

Looks like a ball with a hole in it to me.

Caused a few minutes of laughter playing "Dirty Mind - The game with dirty clues and clean answers"...

A rather merry Uncle2B Matt.

 I'll take that out. That was a reference to a different billboard system that only allowed 150 posts. Since we have unlimited postings, I won't enforce that.
 
 Sorry, Jane. Thanks for making me make a sequitar in the non seq thread.  ;D
I'm going to modify that out, so you won't see it there anymore.
 
 From now on- .No more seq's in the non seq's thread  :laugh: :shake:

I can't believe it - no matter how careful I am I always seem to find a teaspoon when I empty the washing up bowl...
I live in my own little world. But it's OK, they  know me here...

Like bats, dolphins use echolocation to navigate and hunt, bouncing high-pitched sounds off of objects and listening for the echoes.

I own one share of Coca-Cola stock. It pays me about 34 cents every four months, and earns me an occasional invite to stockholders' conventions. ;D

It drives poor Dan insane, since he worries that my $1.36 earnings will cause trouble with the income tax. ::)

Three things you can do with a CD besides play them:

  • Make a clock.
  • Use them for a mat to stand cuppas on.
  • Superglue some together to make an interesting wall display or other object.

All is quiet on New Year's Day
A world in white gets underway
I want to be with you
Be with you night and day
Nothing changes on New Year's Day

 I love my cousin, Tommy, and all, but after reading his overly saccharine, positively
perky, aren't-we-wonderful, fairy tale family newsletter in his Christmas card, all I could think of was, "Man, they sound happy as all hell."

'Twas the Month after Christmas
The following was shared by surfer Cathy W.





'Twas the month after Christmas, and all through the house,
Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.

The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste,
At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.

When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).

I'd remember the marvelous meals I'd prepared,
The gravies and sauces and beef nicely rared.

The wine and the rum balls, the bread and the cheese,
And the way I'd never said, "No thank you, please."

As I dressed myself in my husband's old shirt,
And prepared once again to do battle with dirt.

I said to myself, as I only can,
"You can't spend a winter disguised as a man!"

So--away with the last of the sour cream dip,
Get rid of the fruit cake, every cracker and chip.

Every last bit of food that I like mus t be banished,
'Till all the additional ounces have vanished.

I won't have a cookie--not even a lick,
I'll want only to chew on a long celery stick.

I won't have hot biscuits, or corn bread, or pie,
I'll munch on a carrot and quietly cry.

I'm hungry, I'm lonesome, and life is a bore,
But isn't that what January is for?

Unable to giggle, no longer a riot,
Happy New Year to all and to all a good diet!

Why is it when you need to wear a suit, it needs cleaning, but any other time, it's perfectly clean?
