mosquito bites - they not only make me itchy, they make me go raving mad.

New Frage des Tages ?:

The world is ... ?

YsaPur EsChomuw 05-11-2008 07:00 AM

^ dig that!! :)


In a different connection my friend just SMSed me "The world if full of idiots." which made me laugh and remember that I've asked this question today! :D

Well, that is true, also the world is crazy (which can be good or bad - depending on what sort of craziness it is), dangerous, BUT: very, very beautiful.

This wee world

is mostly fine in any case - and I'll move my ass out of office and into this world: NOW :)

as i am

There is another world, but it is in this one.
~Paul Eluard

and, from an old text called the Lankavatara Sutra,
"Things are not as they seem; nor are they otherwise."

So the world is yes and no, and it is also where yes and no overlap, and finally it is where even yes and no cannot penetrate.

I love it! Everything and nothing.

brightpearl 05-12-2008 08:15 AM

^Good!
I absolutely did not think of it myself in any conventional sense.

That s e r i o u s l y rocks!! :)

(And then there are this one-dimensional assclowns who think the quanticity of stuff was not known till 100 years ago or so -- and that it applies only on the tiny scale; ya, well these folks also value themselves and others in #publications in high impact factor journals / age(finished PhD, Habil etc) x missed fun in life :rolleyes: -- yes I'm growing rather pissed off by 'some' colleagues ;))

Fraught with tension

zero 05-13-2008 12:20 PM

?

what do you think it's like being a crab..if you could go now (your mind) into a crab, what would you see, where would you be, what would you be doing, what would you be thinking, what would you think of all the other things a crab would see.. the squids you'd see.. what's it like, do you think, being a crab?

YsaPur EsChomuw 05-13-2008 01:38 PM

I'm thinking: the water's temperature is rising unpleasantly. Yes, it's definitely getting hotter and hotter. And I'm swimming in circles... I can't get out of here! Help!

brightpearl 05-13-2008 01:54 PM

This is such an excellent question that I fear I'll never do it justice.

Well, I expect the crab has no idea it's a crab or that it lives in water, so I guess it wouldn't be thinking of that. Perhaps it would be thinking about how, even as it shreds and eats this lovely bit of decayed herring, it is hungry. It might spot a boy crab and fancy a bit of shell without understanding why. And it might be thinking of needing to find a place to hide, again for reasons it doesn't understand, except when it's actively being threatened.

Pretty much like being a person, actually, with the possible exception that Froot Loops are harder to come by.

Marcus Bales 05-13-2008 02:09 PM

Wow! a Froot Loop! (chomp) Whoooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaa! Augggh! I can't breathe!

auntie aubrey 05-13-2008 02:23 PM

scuttle.... scuttle..... scuttle.... ooh, meat detected. om-nom-nom-nom. scuttle.... scuttle.... squid! hide! be the sand... be the sand. raise one eye, raise other eye, coast is clear. scuttle scuttle scuttle...... ooh, meat detected. om-nom-nom-nom....

ok answers i suppose but i don't think anyone's really feeling it yet

seebe 05-13-2008 02:47 PM

I see the tide is out and I crawl out of my hole in the sand. I know I have to be fast finding dinner before the tide comes back in. I watch for predators and hope today is another lucky day that I am not eaten while I feed..Tide's coming in..time to get back in my home and watch my favorite show, Deadliest Catch.

WELL WHY DON'T YOU ANSWER THE QUESTION ? MISTER KNOW-IT-ALL-ABOUT-CRABS? :mad:

zero 05-13-2008 03:14 PM

i know nothing about what it's like being a crab and i'm trying to find out - that's precisely why i asked the fvckken question in the first place!!

zero 05-13-2008 03:22 PM

o good here comes terry



i bet he can think himself entirely into a crab's shoes and post a vivid account of the experience

brightpearl 05-13-2008 03:31 PM

OH, all right then, as Tippy's left you bereft for the moment. With apologies to the original author for the minor adjustments, hahaha.

What the Crab Thinks

I can't imagine how they all live up there.
On land I mean.

How could you ever sleep?
Crushed by the weight of your bones
and the whole of the heavens now I think on it.
The body needs oxygen but good lord
imagine being in a great dirty sea of it.
You couldn't get clean after all
things just floating around in the air
chemicals and crap.
There's no way you could avoid being coated in it
no way to wash it off really.

Must be cold.

There are tigers up there you know.
And bears.
Something could just swoop down out of the sky on you
come creeping out of the trees at you
rip you to shreds.

Could've been me.
There but for the grace of god I guess.

I tried to find a pair of crab shoes once but couldn't find any in my size.:rolleyes:

brightpearl 05-13-2008 03:58 PM

Well, I'll be damned.



Google wanted to know if I meant "cream shoes." I thought it meant the dairy product rather than the color and was momentarily flummoxed.

good work beryl - a keenly observed ditty that gave me an insight into the crab condition without even mentioning pincers



guys this question of the day ? is going REALLY WELL - keep on with your thoughts about what it might be like to be a crab - if you like we could even do another one of the same kind tomorrow only instead of crab it could be biscuit

if you're on a game show somewhere and you're trying to cheat, i'm going to be very disappointed.

brightpearl 05-13-2008 05:40 PM

good work auntie - you've made a keen observation that gave me an insight into zero's condition without even mentioning pincers

auntie aubrey 05-13-2008 07:13 PM

the game show is probably called "wheel of crabs" or "crab bamboozle."
