Yes, this is an excellent treatise on what's wrong with the average human attempt at communication.

A cute, triangular part of my face that contains two nostrils and fifty-seven nosehairs.

Not my most accurate sensory organ.

you think if we spoke with our noses we'd communicate better?

I've been it's closest follower my whole life.

new question for st paddy's day:

why is the grass always greener on the other side?

Brynn 03-17-2008 06:53 AM

is it really?

YsaPur EsChomuw 03-17-2008 07:07 AM

Due to the Universal Principle of Reality Distorted by Own Envious Mind.

Stephi_B 03-17-2008 07:35 AM

It isn't (unless YsaPur's Principle applies for you).

It only applies to you if you are of the aforementioned Envious Mind.

lukkucairi 03-17-2008 09:42 AM

because it faces south and it gets more sun (in the spring)

because it faces north and it gets more water (in the summer)

skip intro 03-17-2008 11:04 AM

because it rains more over there


auntie aubrey 03-17-2008 11:28 AM

better PR.

Coffee 03-17-2008 02:13 PM

The combination of atmospheric absorbtion of red light waves, in conjunction with our eyes inability to detect small pieces of dead brown grass in a farther field that is easily discernible beneath one's own feet...ero...grass that is farther away looks greener...unless one's neighbor never waters their lawn.

Jack Flanders 03-17-2008 02:46 PM

It's not. The closer you get to *IT* the less appealing it becomes - you start noticing all the weeds. It's called *Blade Envy*

Frieda 03-17-2008 03:00 PM

to keep us jealous humans busy.

Brynn 03-17-2008 06:53 PM

my own theory involves artificial colorants

Hyakujo's Fox 03-17-2008 07:26 PM

your own restless, opportunistic nature

either that or the fertilising effect of road-crossing chicken poop

craig johnston 03-17-2008 07:39 PM

i reckon cos more irish live over there.


T.I.P. 03-17-2008 11:43 PM

unbeknownst to you, miniscule color elves are constantly operating on the grass, removing the greenness in your immediate vicinity and sloshing on layers of green on the other side

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.

quote=david allen?:
at a certain point you will get it together.

when the number of used glasses and cups in your living area reaches a certain point, you will clean them up. for some people one is too many. someone puts one down, they pick it up. some people, however, will only do something about the glasses and cups when there are no more clean ones.
different standards for "stuff."

at a certain point, you will clean up your email. for some people twenty is too many. and for some, it's five thousand. there are different standards for "stuff."

question of the day ? for march 18th then - what's your standard for "stuff"

alternative question if you don't fancy that one : what might an itchy knee be a harbinger of?

Stephi_B 03-18-2008 01:01 PM

My standards for stuff are on the absolute (lower? upper?) limit I'd say:
When really, really none isn't left anymore: cups n' glasses (I have a huge double sink for them babies to wait for that point), space on email account, hope, time....

Frieda 03-18-2008 01:12 PM

i have no standards whatsoever.

itchy knee is a sign of hail.

lukkucairi 03-18-2008 02:47 PM

quarterly cleaning hurricane hits the house and the all the piles of stuff are put away or hidden

6 dirty glasses is too many - I don't notice fewer than four in one spot

an itchy knee san?

YsaPur EsChomuw 03-18-2008 03:22 PM

The tolerated amount varies according to my mood. I'm generally messy, although I have higher standards for invisible clutter than the visible. I probably clean my nmailbox more often than my apartment. :(

An itchy knee foreshadows some scratching action.

zero 03-18-2008 03:35 PM

"kipple - when nobody's around, kipple reproduces itself. no one can win against kipple, except temporarily and maybe in one spot

auntie aubrey 03-18-2008 04:19 PM

oh poo you beat me to the kipple.

12"razormix 03-18-2008 04:51 PM


be the change you want to see in the world


craig johnston 03-18-2008 05:06 PM

speak up dearie!

that standard for stuff thing changes every day depending on mood, whether guests are expected and other complicated factors too numerous to list here.

itchy knee - get new kecks!

12"razormix 03-18-2008 05:09 PM

zero 03-18-2008 05:13 PM

Frieda 03-18-2008 05:14 PM
