The off on a tangent thread.

Thought about this for a minute or two.
The boards are full of threads containing various points of view, some funny, some serious, some helpful and some just plain silly, but they all have something in common. At some point in most of them, (usually really long ones with a lot of reading) a silly thought will come into my head which I want to write down.

For example just now whilst writing this I thought "What would I do if I had a dog and it ate my best boots?"

Now I haven't got a real dog, and I would be pretty miffed if I did and it ate my best boots.

But the point is that sometimes while reading threads I go off on a tangent and get some strange thoughts.

I'm not the only one (I hope) so how about posting your "Off on a tangent thoughts" here.

They WILL be loved and cherished.

Honest
"What would I do if I had a dog and it ate my best boots?"

One of my childhood friends had a dog named Boots.
Thank you, Erik.
Isn't Boots the monkey on Dora the Explorer?

Yes. I have a 4 year old that's how I know that, whats your excuse?
Because I have a 2 year old and we end up having to watch that show every day. aahhh man.
I'm just glad its on in the morning after I've left for work and I only have to watch the dora movie we bought 5 times in a row. :D

Some people refer to it as Attention Deficit Disorder or ADD.

However, my personal feeling is that ADD is not real. I think the American pharmaceutical companies made up the term so they could sell more prescriptions for kids. Shame on them!

That gives me an idea. Let's start a marketing promotion that says playing Magic can cure your kids of ADD. Wizards would make a fortune. Who's with me... /me charges out of room just like Belushi in Animal House.

Does ADD seem to be a problem in countries other than America? (If not, it would help prove my point that ADD is a pretend disease.)

This concludes my off on a tangent thoughts.
Too many posts on dora the exploiter.

Which for some reason has me humming...

"We're off on the road to Morocco..."
Thank you, Erik.
It's Nemo around here. I can quote most of the movie from memory. ctrl+q y
Speaking of Nemo, I wonder if MTGO has had 20,000 leagues.

I knew Nemo when he was just a snotty midshipman. Mind you, even then he had that 'I'm going to conquer the world on the misguided principle that it's for the universal good. Hmm, I wonder if they'll make a film about me?' look about him.

He had a sort of orange furred rodent for a pet. Looked like a crossbreed of some sort. 'Ornery little critter.

Aarrr.

Thank you, Erik.
Technical question.

Could by a really, really, really big stretch of the imagination horns be considered as ears?

Because ice cream has no bones.

(sorry, but I felt that someone had to do it)

Were you drinking wine at the time?

One of my hobbies is candlemaking (yes, I'm a geek but my wife loves candles) and there is a candle scent named Passionate Purple. Maybe that is what you smelled?

Here's a description of the scent:
PASSIONATE PURPLE - one word to describe this oil - WOW!! This is a GREAT oil! Super strong and definitely "in your face". A Fabulous blend of merlot, sweet sugared grapes with dry sweet citrus bottom notes. This is a totally different oil! SUPER STRONG! Great for the holidays or all year! Bath and body safe and FABULOUS in soy and paraffin. This oil is very unique!
Plucking hairs from your nose is perhaps more painful than plucking hair from any other part of your body.

On a related note, I just plucked a white hair from my nose...should I be concerned?

Follow-up question: What have you been sniffing?

Depending on your personal hygene, you may or may not have hair on the knuckle of your big toe.

I submit that this hair is far and away the most difficult to pluck. Buggers definitely need tweezers, you can win a bet that a guy can't pull them with just his fingers.

I'm thinking white or gray nose hairs are preferred to green or yellow.
Thank you, Erik.

Is anyone else bothered by the fact that Algona is talking about some guy pulling his little bugger with a tweezer? Probably everyone has heard the expression that size doesn't matter, but this is taking it to a new level.

10 things you can't do just using an elbow

1. Touch it with the hand that is connected to the same arm.
2. Scratch your nose.
3. Put it in an ear.
4. Scratch your backside.
5. Use a keyboard successfully.
6. Play the guitar.
7. Brush your teeth.
8. Brush your hair.
9. Get little buggers out with tweezers.
10. Juggle three different coloured balls.

Conclusion

Apart from helping your arm bend, an elbow is a pretty useless part of the anatomy.
What about headlocks?

And how does that make it any different from a knee (substitute "foot" and "leg" as appropriate)
Oh, and the "List" thing up at the top will do the following things:
  • Format the list automatically.
  • Label entries automatically
  • Make lists easier to edit later.
  • Uhh... some other stuff, too...


And, is it just me, or does Bilskilner seem like a good nemesis name? It's just so easy to say in that low, angry tone (akin to Wurnstrom).

I don't know about foot, I'm sure there are some people who can get their big toe up their nose and into their ear and probably a lot of other useful stuff.
However in my defence I was thinking about elbows at the time.

That's kind of like those fun subtitled movies. The actor says like 30 words when all we see is 'I'm going to kill you know'. Never really understood that.

Probably poor translation, but some languages have longer words and more complicated sentence structure. Finnish is one example.
