”Karens jul” handler om en fattig jente som bor i et skur på en av damskipskaiene i Kristiania. Hun jobber som tjenestepike hos Madam Olsen, men madammen måtte reise fordi hun er jordmor. Den dag kom en politimann gående nedover kaia, idet han så et lysglimt inni skuret. Han gikk bort og spurte hva Karen gjorde her. Karen fortalte alt nøye og la til at hun nå var en nybakt mor. Hun hadde hatt samleie med en mann, men hadde ingen opplysninger om han. Politimannen ba om å forlate stedet, og eventuelt dra til fattighuset. Men det ville hun ikke. Hun ba politimannen lov om å få bli. Til slutt viste han barmhjertighet og lot Karen og barnet bli. Noen dager senere når han gikk til skuret, fikk han se at Karen og barnet kå døde. Til slutt ble dette skuret revet ned.

 

Karen er fattig. Hun er tynn med et malt, blekt ansikt. Og et dypt kjertelarr på det ene kinnet. Hun så veldig voksen ut. Hun var iført et lysebrunt overstykke, en kofte somvar veldig slitt. Og et mørkt kjoleskjørt. På føttene hadde hun på seg et par hullete soldatstøvler hvor åpningen var uten snørebånd. I hånden hadde hun et barn. Om hodet hadde hun en tørkle som hang ved haken.

 

Politimannen var i begynnelsen av historien veldig sur og utfor. Men deprimismen forandret seg til et bermhjertig menneske på slutten. Han var iført et ur.

 

I novella ”Karens Jul” finner man disse naturalistiske trekkene:

- Dobbeltmoral

- Ulykkelig slutt (hvor Karen og barne dør)

- Fattigdom

- Pessimistisk mennskesyn

 

Budskapet i denne novellen kan tolkes som at kvinner burde være myed mer forsiktig med hvem man har samleie med. Ikke nok med at man dør selv, men man tar med seg et uskyldig barneliv. Budskapet kan også tolkes som kjønnsroller hvor kvinnen blir lurt av mannen.

budskap/ temaet i denne novellen er vel heller at den er samfunnskritisk..den viser hvordan mennesker som faller utenfor samfunnet ikke får noen hjelp eller støtte. De har på en måte ingen mulighet til å klare seg.Et deterministisk trekk- noe som er typisk for naturalismen. Skildringene i denne novellen er råe og brutale, noe som også er et typisk naturalistisk trekk.

du kan vel ikke mene at du tror at det er budskapet?
budskapet er vel heller noesånn som at det er store forskjeller i samfunnet. de rike år alt og nekter å se hvor ille de andre har det.
det du skriver høres mer kvinnediskriminerende ut.....

Jeg tror stykket også kan ha budskapet om at ikke alle mennesker er sterke i samfunnet, og kanskje har ikke alle resurser til å klare seg selv. Karen var jo tydelig villig til å jobbe bare fruen kom hjem, og politimannen var nok fra samme kår som Karen opprinnelig, ettersom han lot henne bli i skuret. Typisk for borgerskapet i denne perioden var vel også at fattigdom og nød ble totalt ignorert og helst glemt, og A.Skram bruker symbolikken på dette ved at skuret blir revet etter Karen og barnets død der inne, slik at ikke andre løsgjengere skal gjøre det samme. En gripende fortelling syntes jeg.

Har om amalie s, ¨nå, og det er faen ikkedet som er budskapet!!
Halloooo?!?!!? amalie kunne jo selvsagt noe for hvem hun hadde samleie med, men halllooooo!? det e jo faen ikke det som er budskapet fordi om !!!
Det er jo forskjellen mellom rike og fattige, at folk ikke vil snakke med fattige på den tiden.. og den politimannen, ville ikke at hun dama skulle si til noen at de hadde snakket sammen, å siden hun bodde i det skuret og var fattig, så fikk hun ikke lov å være der.
budskapet er : forskjell på fattige og rike!

RETT OPP I DET A ?!

Hello, everyone! This is one of the weirdest sites: or your money back! We have ZIM, neopets, music, and much, much, more. E-mail us for questions, comments, complaints and information. Why not click on the Very Weird Stuff link to see more, or click on the music link? We have halloween and christmas pictures on the NeoPics link. Cheese is not a wild thing!!!!!!!!! Now I have decided to go for a world record. I will try to make the longest web page ever, made completely out of text! Won\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\'t that be fun? I will just type, and type, and never, ever use copy and paste. Wow...I really must be bored. Just goes to show what boredom can do to you. Any way, that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s it for now. Wait, no it isn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t, I still have to keep going, and going, and going. Because I do. THE REST OF THE STUFF I TYPE WILL BE COMPLETLY IN CAPS JUST BECAUSE I CAN. THAT IS ALL. SEEYA! Hi, I\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'- m back. So far this is nowhere near the world record. I think. I don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\'t exactly know where it is...oh, well. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll just have to do the very best that I can. No one is really coming here, anyway. So it doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t matter. By the way, TAB is a worthwhile, community-service organization. The form link is to a 100% fake TAB registration form that you can fill out just for laughs. I can\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \'t believe I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\'m bothering to do this. I have very low expectations of my site. None ever comes here, I could do this all day long and I still wouldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t have any more hits. This is just a pointless excursive in spelling errors and grammatical imprecision. May your day be shiney! The following is an extremely weird poem-thingy that I wrote when I was in a relatively weird mood:
never mind that noise my dear can anyone pass the cheese only if you say pretty please oh, boy do I have to sneeze. why must everyone always rhyme, why I’m a poet and don’t I know it? what I fear comes right after here not this life or the next will I ever be able to pass the test? we’re stuck in here, (alone my dear) and we’ll problem never get out so don’t start to shout. it’s dark and I want to go home is where the heart was where is it now? we’ll never know but oh crap it’s starting to snow and it’s time to show and tell about the well that you found last summer at camp when it was damp it was near the ramp oh god why must this be I liked that tree but now it’s gone, farewell so long I’ll miss you as long as you write but then I’m afraid to say good-night. my dear there’s nothing to fear that’s only a box that’s made of blocks next to the wagon that looks like a dragon why are you shaking it’s your fear that is making you shiver and act all a quiver. don’t you know that you only need be afraid of fear and never anything here and certainly not a post that acts like a ghost?
See, very weird. At least it fills up my word quota for the day. Not that I exactly have a word quota for the day. It just sounded very professional to say it. Anyway, I still don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t think that anyone is actually coming here. You\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\'d have to be an absolute loser (or really bored) to come here. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d probley come here, but that isn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t much of a surprise. After all, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve been to the Really Really Big Button That Doesn\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\'t Do Anything website over 50 times. Pathetic. But, whatever. As long as I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m happy, right. Humor the crazy person, okay? Oh, guess what? According to someone you problem don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t know, this is the second most pointless website ever! Next to the Really Big Button, of course. I feel special. Come on everyone, group hug. Okay, now I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m starting to scare myself...I\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\'m gonna quit for today. Seeya. Now I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back. Is this getting confusing to you? Too bad. Now I want you to go to http://quiz.ravenblack.net/blood.- pl?biter=eon\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" If you do this I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll get points in the game. Come on all you non-existing people! Help me! You know you want to! It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s a worthy cause! Honestly, the more time I waste playing the game, the less time I\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\'ll work on this site and the less stuff you gotta read. Although why you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d be here if you didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t want to read is beyond me. Maybe you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re lost. Okay, if you want to get out, click the little refresh button, okay? Good...what? You say it didn\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\'t let you out? Oh, well. You must be caught in a time warp. Keep pressing it. Maybe you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll break free. What\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s that. The little counter at the bottom keeps going up? Never mind. That\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s just how many times you have to click before you can leave. Good-bye.

Hey, - I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\'m once again: back. I don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t suppose you fell for that little thing about the refresh button. After all, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re a responsible, intelligent person who apparently has a lot of time on your hands. Well, you can\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t possibly have more time than I do. I mean, after all, I made this site. - You\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\'re only browsing it. And most people don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t even come here. Not even my friends...*sniffle* The just ignore this poor, pathetic little page. All they do is fill out the TAB form and leave. I think. Maybe they\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re here right now! HI! HOW ARE YOU DOING? I\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'- M FINE! THANKS FOR COMING! YES, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\'M YELLING! Who am I kidding. This page won\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t get a single hit, unless I bribe people...now that has possibilities. Okay, fill out the TAB form, so I have proof that you bothered to come here and...uh...I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll...u- h...send you a sandwich? Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m bored. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m gonna go hug a moose. MOOSE! I love-d you moose! Hey, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back again! Yea...*waits for applause* okay! Now I want all you loyal fans...*cricket chirps* to go to the link to see what I\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'- m like. I took a whole bunch of personality quizzes and posted them there. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\'m an evil villain, kitty and a freakazoid so far. And I only took the quiz once, too. Spooky how accurate they are...anyway, I command you to go! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m going. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m gonna start counting how many times I say back. Let\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\'s see: 1...2...3...4...5! Wow. I must really be desperate for something to do. I now officially have proof that someone has been here! It was one of my friends. Apparently this page really is getting long, because my friend said something to that effect. Maybe. Anyway, moving on! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m just basically typing nothing. Just like all those reports people have to do. You know? With a specific number of words. They start out with half that number, and then just fill in words until they have the right amount. I salute those people. You\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re great tradition is being carried out here, on the second most pointless site ever! Well. Maybe eventually some weird, bored person will wander onto my site on accident and be mildly entertained be my site until they wander onto a live video feed of a coffee maker. Or maybe not. I only know that I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m entertaining me, which was my original goal. So. I\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\'ve done what I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve set out to accomplish. Yea, me! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m so special. You see, most people, they don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like reading or writing. So if you\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \'re not most people, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve made it down this far without skipping, skimming or getting the spark notes version. (Which I think does not exist) My point is, if you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve bothered to read this, then, (like me) you probley have also read the ketchup bottle so many times that you have it down verbatim. Look verbatim up. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s a word. But, you should know that, since you like reading. Or maybe you\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\'re just skimming. Anyway, there\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s nothing wrong with reading food labels. You might be asked a question about them on a quiz show. And now, for the million-dollar question: How many calories are there in a single serving of Mustard? I can just see it now...It could be called Know-Your-Food. Or You are What you Eat. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d probley be as popular as those game shows that no one\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s ever heard of. Speaking of food, what- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\'s up with pie? There\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s strawberry pie, apple, pumpkin and so many others, but there is no grape pie! I know. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m just as upset about this unfortunate lack of development in the pie division. Think about it. Grapes are used to make jelly, jam, juice and raisins. What makes them undesirable for pie? Would they dry into raisins? Couldn\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t- you just stick some jelly in a piecrust and bake it? It just doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t make any sense. Another thing that bothers me is organ grinders. You know, the foreign guys with the bellhop hats and the little music thingy and the cute little monkey with the bellhop hat who collects the money? Okay. They\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re basically begging on the street. How did they ever afford an organ-thingy? Wouldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t it make more sense to get a kazoo, if you\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\'re broke? And if they\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re so poor, what possessed them to buy a monkey? I mean, I don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t think I could afford a monkey, and I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m not exactly on the streets. Obviously I at least have a computer...so, back to the organ grinders. I would have sold the monkey and the organ and been able to eat for at least a year. Or, if I was weirder than I am, I could at least kill the monkey with the organ and eat it. Why on earth did they keep the monkey? It must have cost a fortune to feed...not to mention the mess. Tha- t\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\'s just one of those many facts of life that are better left mysteries. Especially since no one but me would ask the question. I better go. I think I hear a monkey...Okay...now I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back. That\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s the sixth time I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve said back! I realize that this longest text ever must be very boring and not worth any- one\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\'s time. But I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d like to take this time to thank the 2 and 1/2 people in the entire universe who have bothered to read this entire thing. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m not exactly sure who they are, but: thanks! Right now, my spacebar is malfunctioning...- that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\'s not good...I have to press it two or three times just to insert a freaking space. Maybe the evil little faeries with the sharp little teeth have put their evil faerie dust on my computer. Or maybe not. This is too frustrating. Goodbye for now...Now I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back. And still frustrated. But for a different reason. Today I had the misfortune of playing a Treasure Planet game on neopets.com It was terrible. Apparently the point of the game was to get your character to shout \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Whoo-Hoo!\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" as many times as possible before you splattered your brains on the rocks, all the while listening to a soundtrack that is similar to a dying ceiling fan. Of course, when I started out I accidentally hit the rocks approximately three million times. Halfway though I used my four remaining brain-cells to decide that the game was dumb. So my goal changed from surviving to laughing evilly while my character died. So the game naturally did everything it could to preserve my life. The stupid game is still going on and I refuse to quit because I want my points. My character is actually dodging the stupid rocks better now then when I controlled him. I hate irony. Seeya. Okay. Now - I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\'m back again. Today I added an update page, which is basically a less chaotic, outlined version of this without all the ranting. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s more like techno talk about arrays and how much I suck and whether or not the Braves will win this year. Okay, the whole braves thing is made up. But everything else I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve said so far is true. I think. Maybe I should start on a boring disclaimer...Eh-hem. All contents of this site were designed for entertainment purposes only. Any use thereof that is not stated in the above mentioned statement would make the author, hereby referred to as Patron Saint of Paper Clips, very angry. Should you violate the purpose of this site: i.e. become not entertained, the Patron Saint of Paper Clips will be forced to take drastic measures. This is specified in Code: 343 of the Flaming Chicken Handbook. Ooooo…that’s a great idea! I’m gonna start quoting from the Flaming Chicken Handbook! Code: 343 of the Flaming Chicken Handbook states that the Patron Saint of Paper Clips (that’s me) is allowed to cause vague, pain like sensations while the offending person (or alien life form, dog, etc.) isn’t paying attention. Now I have a purpose in life! To make up quotes from the non-existent Flaming Chicken Handbook, which I’m sure you have a copy of. No? Too bad. It’s in the mail, I promise! Now I must take my leave…and remember. Cheese is watching. Okay...I\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'- m back...I think that eventually half of this thing will consist of the word back over and over again...that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s just weird. Which fits the motif of the rest of the site. There\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s even a money back guarantee. Isn’t\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'- that nice? See? Now no one can ever say that I don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\'t take care of my viewers. Especially since I don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t have viewers. I have readers. Wait...I really don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t even know if anyone bothers to read this. Even if I put it in a less chaotic, more user-friendly format people would still ignore this because it involves: reading. Yes. Sad to admit, but the majority of people would rather read the summary at the back of a book rather than the whole book itself. What has the world come to? It\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s- pathetic. Especially since I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\'m bothering to write all this. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s not fair! Why can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t I have more readers?! All the other internet writers have nothing on me, except they\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re- better at advertising, having a central theme/plot and basically more talented. Whereas I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\'m more into the whole ranting and raving stage right now. Plus, I am horrible at spelling. Which is bad. Thank the powers that be for spell-check. The single greatest invention of the computer gods. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m getting bored, so I think I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m done for the day. May your day be shiney! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back again! And I feel weird! I found at that yet another one of my friends is reading this. Creepy. Just how much time do they have on their hands. Perhaps their just trying to be nice. I can just see it now...an organization devoted not to feeding the hungry, or peace, or love or whatever, but to giving recognition to all those poor, pathetic, unpopular websites. I wonder what it\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\'s name would be. Don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t Ignore Sites? Would it be called DIS? Isn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t that like a slang term for an insult? Would that be considered poetic justice, or just a nice coincidence? And why do I even care? I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll tell you why. Because I have nothing else to do right now. I could be playing neopets, but ever since my bad experience with Treasure Planet, I don\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\'t feel like it. Oh, by the way, I noticed that whenever I use spell-check, my stupid computer turns the word probley into to word problem. To prevent this, I did nothing. So, it is now up to you, the imaginary reader, to decide whether I mean probley or problem...it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s almost like a game! But without the bad sound track. And I promise not to force you to live when you would rather die. Moving on, I have nothing else to say, but don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t feel like quitting just yet. I\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m- like the little engine that could. Or maybe the Energizer Bunny. I just keep going, and going and going. Or I could be like that annoying guy on T.V. who keeps asking if you can hear him. If my site manages to last a decade, my readers *snicker* will probley wonder what I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\'m talking about. My answer is simple. It doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t matter. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m just rambling. Which means that it doesn\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'- t matter if you understand anything I say. Doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t that make you feel better? I bet it does. Wow. Look how long this has gotten. I even impress myself. Who would have thought I have this much free time? And I congratulate any reader who has gotten this far. Ooooooo! You must check out the fortunes section of the random stuff page! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve just gotten an idea for some more, original, fortunes...I gotta go!(may the moose be with you) And now I am back. I swear. If iI fill out the fake tab form I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m gonna have to put back as my favorite word...I already have filled it out, though. Would it be cheating to fill it out again? Only if I had multiple personalities. Or would it be cheating if I didn\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- 't have multiple personalities? The world may never know. Just like how many licks it takes to get to the bottom of a tootsie pop. Would it vary? The number of licks, I mean. Someone could have super-disolving spit, or watery-spit. Or what if you took big ol\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\' slobbery licks? Does the commercial take that into account? No. It doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t. And let me tell you, it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s an outrage. It deludes all of American\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\'s sweet, innocent, candy-loving children into thinking that a cartoon owl is smarter than they are! \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Mr. Owl, can you tell us how many licks does it take to get to the bottom of a tootsie pop?\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" Or whatever. And \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Mr. Owl\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\" replies \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"One...Twoo...Three! Chomp\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" And he bites it. That teaches our youth that it\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\'s okay to agree to help someone, and then ruin their experiment. Well...it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s not. I am going to start a protest group. Teens Against Cartoon Owls. We could call ourselves TACO! I love the little tacos, I love them good! That is a direct quote from GIR, co-star and comic-relief on INVADER ZIM. Hmmmm...intersting. I put hyphens in both of his titles...it must be a conspiracy! I gotta go. Those TACO buttons don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t make themselves, you know. I\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back again. And not so cheesed off about the whole tootsie roll pop thing. Right now, I have another twenty minutes on the Internet before - I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\'m gonna watch T.V. And I can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t think of anything else to do. So, predictably, here I am. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s not like I have anything better to do. Obviously, you know this. After all, look how long this text is. I wonder if I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve made the world record? If I did, would I stop this? Why bother asking? I\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\'ll will most likely still be adding to this on my death bed. Hmmmmm...has any old, senile person ever written anything? Was it coherent? Did it make more sense that this text? Is it possible to make less sense? Am I enjoying asking retorical questions? Yes. Yes, I am. But I seriously wonder what something written by a senile person would be like. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve heard of poems and stuff written by people who were high, insane or paranoid. But never senile. Can a senile person write? Aren\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t they regressed to a child-like state? Does it even matter? Is anyone even reading this? Did I resume asking retorical questions? Do you care? Is this eating up time? I feel like I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m playing questions only on whose line is it anway. I probley should have capitalized something, or underlined but I\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\'m feeling lazy...hey, you try to keep your two and a half readers happy! It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s really stressfull. Someday, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m gonna snap and just delete this entire thing. Gee, I hope not! I worked sorta hard on this. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s great for making random topics weave together to form an overall infrastructure of chaos. That made little sense. That\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\'s why it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s here, and not some critically acclaimed site. Ooooooooooooo! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m gonna quote from the FLAMING CHICKENS HANDBOOK again! Yep! I bet you were just breathless in anticipation. Okay. Here goes. Code: 472 of the Flaming Chickens Handbook states that this site in no way aknowledges the existance of other, better sites (hereon reffered to as the Losers) The Losers are a myth. The Patron Saint of Paper Clips (me again!) claims no knowledge as to where that particullary nasty rumor started, but confirms that this is the best site ever. It would be a sin against humanity for a better site to exist. Should you refuse to aknowledge the Patron Saint of Paper Clips as the ruler of the Internet, you will be subjected to punishment as stated in Code 343 of the Flaming Chicken Handbook (i.e. Experience vague, pain-like sensations when you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re not paying attention) This has been a public service announcement. This is a test, I repeat only a test. Had this been an actual emergency, we would have bought up all the can openers and charged 3 cows and a pig for each one. I repeat, lock all you doors and windows, this is it. I repeat, there is nothing to worry about. Everything is fine. The end is not here. I\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'- m going, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\'re on you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re own! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back!*smiles brightly* And apparantly delusional! Anyway, I just finished rereading my longest text ever. And I became inspired to talk about nothing. You see, I periodically read the longest text ever to check the constant downward spiral of my sanity. Hmmm...I seem to be entertaining myself though, even while reading what I wrote. Which is why I still go to the Really Really Big Button That Doesn\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\'t Do Anything website. Because I am easily amused and have lots and lots of time on my hands. Maybe, some day far in the future (like next Thursday) I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll print a copy of this insane text. And then go door to door distributing it. Eventually, this would become a monthly tradition. Whole families would gather around their front door, in breathless anticipation while they attempted to barracade me out. I can just see the whole community rising to thwart my attempts to spread love, joy and insane chaos. I probley wouldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t actually print this out (think how much paper it would take!) but if I do, only friends and enemies will receive copies. Hmmmm...maybe my condition is worsening. Or not. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m still peeved about the cartoon owl from the Tootsie Roll Pop commercials. He is pure evil. TACO will eventually destroy him. Unless he has already been destroyed by an even more radical Anti-Cartoon-Owl group. I hope not. Or, would that be good? I suppose I could let someone else have the glory. After all, I\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \'m not in this line of buisness for the fame, fortune and power. What line of buisness, do you ask? Why, the assasinating annoying cartoon characters buisness. (Actually I just question them untill they spontaneously combust, I ask lots of questions) So, in conclusion, ladies and gentleman of the jury(that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s you) I could not have possibly tortured \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Mr. Owl\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" to death. I love owls. Hmm...I seem to be jumping from one subject to another more frequently. Either I am growing more comfortable with my on-line writing, or I am progressivly getting more insane and chaotic. I also am psyco-analyzing myself a lot today- ...hmmmm...I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m even saying \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"hmmmmm...\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" a lot. Just like a real psychologist. Hmmmmmmm. Time for another boring disclaimer!!!!!!! Code: 742 of the Flaming Chickens Handbook states that in no part does the Patron Saint of Paper Clips (Tha- t\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\'s still me!) actually claim to be mentally ill. That\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s either a) a publicity stunt b) An attempt at humor c) a cry for help or d) none of the above You can e-mail your responses by conducting a scavenger hunt of this site. Some of the pages of this site contain a link encouging the two and a half people to e-mail the Patron Saint of Paper Clips. There may also be evil little links that are designed to confuse you. These links send stuff to someone named johnjones333@hotmail.com The Patron Saint of Paper Clips does not know who this individual is, but sincerly wishes that you send all your hate mail to him. Not that the aformentioned individual claims to have received hate mail (or mail of any kind) via a website link. Thank-you for your time. Remember to send your answers to my sanity quiz to the e-mail account, flamingchickens333@hotmail.com Oh, and once I refer to myself in the first person again, the handbook quote is over. I just thought that I might like to mention that. Oh. You\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re still here. I figured you rush right on over to e-mail me. Perhaps you don\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t- have time to waste e-mailing me. HA! HA! HA! That\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\'s funny!!!! If you you don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t have time to waste, what are you doing here?!!! Oh, who am I kidding. I figure that even the people I manage to lure onto my site from neopets don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t even bother to come to this particular page. Maybe I should make the link come here directly...Hey! What a good idea! That way I can spread my love, joy and insane chaos to more people! I\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m- a genius. Gotta go, must lure innocent victems to the second most pointless site ever!!!! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\'m back. And really angry, and confused. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve always known that I was weird, that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s always been a given. But now I realize that I am considerably more normal than the rest of my family. Today we had a \\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"famil- y outing.\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" Now, most families will go bowling, or putt-putt golfing. They may go to a resteraunt with an arcarde, or the movies or to a theme park. Not my family! No, we got the greatest family outing of all. We got to go to a bar and play pool!!!!!*waits for readers to become insanely jealous* Yep, that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s right, a bar with a pool table! Not only did we get world class cuisine (under-cooked hotdogs and over-cooked hamburgers), my little sister (age 10) got taught pool by someone I strongly supect is an ex-convict! Naturally when it was announced that we\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d be eating dinner in this place, I could hardly contain my excitment(I glared at my mother and asked why we couldn\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\'t go to Pizza Hut) When we arrived, we were promptly served (after thirty minutes) In the meantime, we played a family game of pool(my parents played while my brother and sister and I watched) After two rousing rounds, our food came. The food was superb, (our food came the exact opposite of how we ordered it, and half of the onion rings were missing) Then we joyfully returned to our game(my sister and the ex-con played my mom) We spent hours there (from 5p.m.-7:15p.m.) There were many people that were the same age as me and my siblings (no one in the room but us were under 30) Us kids had to be dragged kicking and screaming from the bar ( I almost fell asleep during the last game I watched) As we left, there was a feeling of goodwill and fellowship between all(my sister locked me out of the car and wouldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t let me in untill I started yelling profanity in her general direction) The high point of the entire night was when my mother gave me $21 for my report card. She promptly borrowed $1 to help with the waitresses tip(This part I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m not being sarcastic about) All in all it was a night I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll remember forever (as the lowest point in \\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\"family outing\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"history, except for that time my mom dragged me to a church thing on the concept of truth.) My brother(age 13) even decided upon a new job he wants when he\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s old enough to work, a busboy at the bar. We had to tell him that he would probley have to wait untill he was 21.(Absolutly nothing about that statement was sarcastic) As you can see, I love my families outings(Not unless you\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\'re blind...or stupid) &#!#%&&!!!(*%$ WHAT THE %$#@ WAS MY MOTHER $#$#%$# THINKING!!!!!!!???? BRINGING $#$$# KIDS IN A BAR!? I know it was her idea, \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'cause my dad hates it, too. My mom and my stupid little 10-year old sister loves it, though. *sighs* Why does my life have to be so weird? I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m leaving...now I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back! And not so pissed at my weird family. Now is the time to mourn the loss of one of my most loyal readers (I think she\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\'s read the entire thing one time, which is more than anyone else has done so far) She has been banned from accesing any portion of the Internet, do to reasons that must remain confidental due to security reasons. If I told you, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d have to kill you and all that stuff. So...now I am down to one and a half readers. Untill such time that I have more. I wonder why anyone would read this? You would have to have several characteristics that I possess. First of all, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d have to have an extrodinary amount of free time. Second of all, you would have to have the patience to read through all of this. And lastly, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d have to know where the heck this site is. I admit it. I haven\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\'t exactly advertised this site. Nor can I find it on any search engines. Some of my pages have stuff written in to make search engines recognize me, but it doesn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t seem to be working. What must I do to rise above obscurity? I tell people I know about this site, but they either ignore this page, or don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t even bother coming to the site in the first place. I suppose that is the bane of all authors. To pour your heart and soul into a passage, and have everyone ignore it. *sniffle* Why must this be? Maybe I should just give up. After all, no one would really care if I quit updating this site. But I can\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t help but think of stuff like the evil over lord list and REALLY REALLY BIG BUTTON THAT DOE- SN\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\'T DO ANYTHING. They are not great neccesarily because of the content, (although that helps some) they are great because of their sheer length. You can read a little each day. And almost never finish. Also, I guess I still am trying to get the world record. I have heard some feedback suggesting that I make someway for people to remember where they stopped reading. It can be very confusing, especially if you weren\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t paying attention in the first place. Well, I dont want to organize this page, in any manner. This is chaos. And insanity. Not neat little text in classifiable rows, in alphabetical order. If you want neat, go to some other site(though, as mentioned in Flaming Chickens Code:472 there is no such thing as a site better than this one). Otherwise, I guess you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re stuck with me. Awwwww...I\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\'m touched! You didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t run screaming to another site, thankfull for the chance to escape this insanity. You\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re still here, which must mean that you\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d rather be here than anywhere else! Hey, where are you going?! I thought you were gonna stay here and keep me company?! *drags reader back* See, I knew y- ou\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\'d stay! *gagged reader glares* What\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s that? I know this is the best site ever, thanks for the compliment! *reader starts inching towards freedom* I better go...I think that I may have a problem brewing. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back. And very concerned about this new, younger generation (all 10 year olds who were born in 1992) They are supposed to be the future. Instead they appear to be a nuclear armagedon in the form of a fifth grader. I chanced to have an interview with an informant from this evil generation (my little sister) who will be called Mrs. X for security reasons (no, she\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s not married, the \- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\"Mrs\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" makes it good as a disguise) I was quizing Mrs. X on Civil War History for an upcoming test in her classroom (whose location can not be devulged) Mrs. X seemed fluent in the subject. Using prior knowledge, I deduced that Mrs. X was full of crap. Out of sheer curiosity, I asked Mrs. X who participated in the Civil War. She immediatly replied \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Clara Barton\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\". I clarified, which countries fought in the Civil War. She answered: England, Russia, and (out of sheer desperation) Iraq. I believe that she was just listing countries she knows America has fought against. Now, correct me if I\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\'m wrong...but Iraq? I don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t know if Iraq even existed in the Civil War Era! Why on earth would we go have way across the world to fight them when we didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t even really need oil?!! Moving on, I finaly managed to coax my sister (I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m tired of writing Mrs. X) to tentativly guess that America fought in the Civil War. I mean, who- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\'d a thought? America? Fighting in the American Civil War? In a moment of inspiration, I asked her who America fought. Her first guess was enslaved africans. Well, at least she knows that slaves were involved in the war. Before she could start listing all of America\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s enemies, I gave her a hint. I said \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"The Union fought...\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\" With a crack, snaple and pop, some random synapses in her brain connected in the right order and she said \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\"CONFEDERACY!!!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" I was very proud of her, just as you would be proud of a two-year-old who has just announced: \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"I WENT POO-POO ON THE POTTY- !!!!!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\" What I mean is, you wouldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t be very proud if the average person said that they just took a dookey on the toilet, and you wouldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t be very proud if they knew who fought against the Union in the Civil War. I confirmed that the Union was Northern and Free, and that the Confederacy was Southern and Slave. We resumed quizzing and she got every question on the worksheet correct. This is because she memorizes the questions. That way, she can pass the test without actually learning anything. You see, if you memorize stuff, you only have to remember that the answer to number 6 is Clara Barton for a week, rather than having to remember that Clara Barton started the Red Cross for the rest of you life. I sincerely appologize if anyone is offended by my view of memorization. I also would like such persons to immediatly leave my site. You don\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\'t belong here. You see...knowledge is good. If my sister...uh...Mrs. X were ever asked a question on the Civil War on a quiz show, she\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d come up with nothing. With knowledge you can win money and the opportunity to look like a dork on national television. My sister is a big believer in the memorization system. I previous time when I was studying with her (American Revolution, this time) I was trying to help her remember the difference between the Patriots(Patriotic to America) and the Loyalists (Loyal to Britain) She didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t know what the word patriotic meant. I tried to explain. I asked her how you dress on the forth of july (she said nice) I asked what the colors red, white and blue were (pretty). I gave up in exasperation. More recently, I was trying to instill a sense of empathy and niceness in her. I asked her what the golden rule of christianity was. She didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t know. When I pressed her, she confessed she did- n\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\'t know what chrisianity was. Completly defeated, I told her that it was the religion she practiced every Sunday when she went with her friends to church. This confirmed my suspicion that she only went so that she could have the use of the church\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s playground equipment. My family also strongly suspects that she stole $20 from the donation thingy. Anyway, that\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s my rant on the new generation that contains my little sister. When someone of her generation runs for president, I\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m- gonna do a complete background check. If they\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\'re anything like my sister, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m movin\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\' to Canada. Gotta go...the Russian-Brittish-Iraqi-enslaved-Africans are coming to defeat the Mexicans. I\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m- back! *there\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s that darn cricket again* And I have a genuine question to ask all of my loyal readers *cough-cough* Okay, here it is: Is it normal for a non-gender specific sibling to carry around various dead reptiles (snakes, turtles, lizards etc.) Furthormore, is it considered accepted behavior to talk to these dead reptiles, in a cooey, baby talky kind of voice? Finnaly, is it expected for said sibling\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s non-gender specific parent to encourage such behavior, citing \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"I was just like that as a child\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\" as an excuse? It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s an honest question as I fear that my non-gender specific sibling is weird. Who am I kidding? My entire family is weird. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s just a matter of degree. Hey, by the way. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m sorry that my last few entries have been only about my various family antics. Although I can\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \'t see why you care, because there is a large probability that you do not exist, because I don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t think anyone is reading this anymore. How discouraging. People need to make the time to waste time. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s a time honored tradition. Who\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'d thought that I could use time that many times in only a few sentences? It\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- 's been pretty quiet here lately, which is why I haven\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t added anything to this text in awhile. I know, you were just crushed that nothing new was happening. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s a sad, cold, cruel world out there and you had nothing to relieve the monotony of it. *sniffle* I feel so sorry for you! Next thing you know, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re internet connection will die. Well, too bad! Do you know I never even had a computer untill just a few months ago (that\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\'s why I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m obsessivly writing here) So I won\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t pity you if you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re computer dies for unexpected reasons. Time for another quote from the FLAMING CHICKEN HANDBOOK!!! Code: 843 of the Flaming Chicken Handbook states that in no way is the Patron Saint of Paper Clips (guess who?) responsible for any faulty wiring or lack thereof in your computer. The Patron Saint of Paper Clips in no way wishes harm on your computer. Any derogatory statement is simply an opinion of an individual, not of the flaming order of the flaming chickens. Said order will in no way be held responsible for any damages, injuries, loss of life, limb, head, or organs. Okay, quote is done. Maybe I should put quotation marks around them...nah, too much work. But I probably will eventually get around to having a seperate page just for the FLAMING CHICKEN HANDBOOK. That way all the members (what members) can print out a copy of it for themselves (if they didn\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\'t get that copy in the mail) I guess I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m done for the day...I know. You want me to stay. It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s okay. Because eventually, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll be back! Seeya! I\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \'m back. And once again suprised. When I was at a TAB poetry thingy (TAB is good TAB is great We love TAB) I met some new people. One of these people (who shall remain nameless untill such time that I have explicit permission to use her name) turned out to be almost as weird as me. As in...she read the ENTIRE Longest Text Ever. The whole thing. So far two whole people (to my knowledge) have read the entire thing, and a few people have skimmed it. That means I really can justify claiming to have two and a half readers! I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\'m so happy! That means my pointless obsession has actually entertained someone besides me! Perhaps, one day, far in the future, this will actually be a world record and random people will acutally voluntarily read this text every day. Or maybe not. The point is that it is nice to have readers. Or maybe it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s not...I mean...won\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t the quality *snicker* of my work deteriorate if I am no longer writing for the target audience of me? If that happens, then no one will read this. And then I\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\'ll be writing for me again. And then the quality will rise. And then people will start reading. And then the quality will go down and the vicious spiral of good and bad will continue untill I either give up this text, or go crazy...er. In any case...I should probably find a topic. Yeah...a topic would be good. Or...I could just continue to write about finding a topic. Ooooo! I know a topic! Ice cream trucks! This has been bothering me for a while. You see...when it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s hot, you want something cold to eat. Conviently, ice cream trucks come around during the hottest part of the year (it must be a conspiracy). As you may or may not know, small children swarm the ice cream trucks. The vendors even play whimsical music which I strongly suspect contains subliminal messages to make you hungry for ice cream. The vendors get oodles of cash, and the kids get ice cream. Now, in today\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s society of buying groceries on-line and getting them delivered, why hasn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t any other food industry marketed this ingenius idea to bring the product to the consumer. I can just see Hot Dog, and Pizza trucks roaming the neighbor hoods, selling treats to hungry children...and adults. Of course, said adults would have to peel their butt-cheeks off the couch...but the- y\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\'d have to do that for the delivary man anyway. The food trucks could even play music that made you hungry for their food. Then the problem with obesity in America would be blamed on evil food truck drivers as opposed to the harmless, benificient television and computer. We could all breath a sigh of relief as parents kept their children inside, away from the evil truck drivers and near the T.V. Gone would be the days when parents told children to play outside, it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s a nice day. Parents would buy their children computers, video games and other television neccesities. This, of course would expand the market for such products. This would lead to a better, more stable economy. Food industires would be buying cars, gas and music. Parents would increase the purchase of entertainment items. In return companies would make a profit, pay their workers better. The workers would then be able to afford more entertainment items and the upward spiral would continue, as opposed to the evil downward spiral of my writing. In conclusion, Ladies and Gentlemen...if you implement my idea, there will be peace and prosperity for all. As long as you don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t mind a few more couch potatoes. Gotta go...I think I hear a catchy jingle. I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back- ...it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\'s been awhile since I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ve written here. A lot has happened. Like my EVIL school computer deleting my updates page. But it\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s all good. Especially since I just saw The Matrix: Reloaded. The following text may spoil the movie for you, so WARNING: do no read this unless you have already seen the movie. Okay. What I liked best was the philosophy on choices. (the mindless fight scenes were really cool, too). It\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s like this. In the beginning of the movie, Neo is having dreams about - Trinity\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s death. Later, The Oracle tells him that he has already decided her fate. Towards the end of the movie, Neo chooses to tell Trinity to stay out of the Matrix, since he saw her die in it. She agrees, but only after seeing how important it is to him. After a horrific chain of events (is it coincidence, or fate) the people who will deactivate the secondary power source of the building Neo is infiltrating, die. So...the plan is going to fail. Unless someone does something, Neo, Morpheus and many others will die. Trinity, who is of course outside of the Matrix, knows this and chooses to enter the Matrix to save the day. The events of Neo\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s dream unfold. So...when the oracle said that the choice had already been made, she was completely correct. The moment Neo woke from dreams of Trinity\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s death, he made a choice. He would do everything in his power to keep his dream from becoming reality. So he kept her out of the Matrix, and she saw the problem, and entered the Matrix to fix it. If she had been in the Matrix, she would have likely been with Morpheus, never would have known about the plan\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\'s failure, would therefore not have been in the situation that resulted in her death. And the plan would have failed and Neo might have died, along with a large portion of the city (the building was set to blow if there was any intruders) So...Neo\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s choice to attempt to save Trinity triggered the sequence of events that led to her death. As Neo realizes all of this, through a nearly omniscient Architect of the Matrix, he makes another choice. This choice is simply an extension of his original choice: he will save Trinity at all costs. Neo is told that he has two choices. He can save mankind, and doom Trinity. Or he can try to save Trinity and doom mankind. No guarantee that he\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll succeed in saving Trinity. He goes for Trinity, makes it just in time to catch her body, and starts her heart back up. In return for not taking the easy route, he gains a power in the more or less real world. He can deactivate the machines, (squidies) but at great personal cost. The movie ends with him in a coma. Now, you must realize that I have described only one aspect of this movie of all movies. There are not enough words in the English language to describe the sheer coolness of the fight choreography, special effects and the plot. I highly recommend you see the movie yourself. I\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m sorry that - today\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\'s rant isn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t random, insane or completely chaotic, but I must right my experience with The Matrix before I forget. I am so buying this movie when it comes out on DVD. I love it! You have to admit its sheer coolness. I mean, come on! It\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'s the sequel to the movie that revolutionized the standard by which we judge special effects. I better stop typing before I have a heart attack...just remember...The Matrix has you...I\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\'m back. And throughly pissed off at my school system in general. You see...they feel that the only way to reward academic achievement...yada-yada-yada...is to force the smart kids to be ushers for Senior Honor Nite, and Graduation. Where is the logic in this? I for one, didn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t know about such dire consequences for not deliberatly failing classes. It was bad enough that I was forced to \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"volunteer\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" my precious time (i could have worked on this site)...no...I was forced to wear formal attire. My school system is stuck in the past...and formal attire means...a dress...a white dress...(for those you who never bothered to find out...I am indeed female). So...for the first time in about 5 years...I wore a dress...and something that was complelty white. What cruel fate is this? To compound the EVIL situation...I was forced to wear feminine shoes. In other words...they hurt. And they pushed my toes together. Since I have a rather weird phobia of touching my own skin...this made my evening my own personall torture session. I think that such gender-specific torture should be deemed inhumane and abolished from our great society...of flaming chickens. Henceforth...Code: 666 of the Flaming Chickens Handbook states that under no circumstance will the Patron Saint of Paper Clips (guess who) be forced to wear anything other than a t-shirt and preferably black jeans. Should you violate this right, you will become destroyed or possibly dizzy. I\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\'m leaving now...I have some destruction to do. i\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m back. from graduation. we had to get there one hour and fifteen minutes early because there was traffic. After standing around a lot...the ceremony started. Lots of people spoke. by the time I had to do my part (tell people where to stand before getting their diploma) it was dark. there were bugs. they liked landing on me. then...i got to go stand while people said a lot of stuff. i couldn\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t hear it because someone had put the speakers facing the audience. we clapped. the whole time, even during the name-calling, seniors were playing with silly string and beachballs. afterwards...they turned off the lights. there were lots of fireworks. i wandered around for 20 minutes looking for a cell phone. i called home, and waited another hour for my ride...traffic to the school was one way. i felt sorry for my dad. i am tired...but cannot go to sleep. i\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'ll copy and paste this to my site. maybe the longest text ever. you will all suffer as i have suffered when and if you graduate. i cannot feel my feet. i hate dress shoes. I\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\'m back. Today, I\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\'m here to salute the Pointless Signs Of America! The PSOA have been whole-heartedly working for you, and what have you done for them? NOTHING! These so-called \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"pointless\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" signs are doing just what they were meant to do: entertain you! You cannot judge them simply because they have no apparant function. They expand your mind, making you think about all the things they could do. They could do anything they wanted to, if they just put their minds to it. If you judged everything by what it doesn\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\'t acomplish, then the entire world is populated by pointless beings. Noone can do everything, so how can you expect a SIGN, with the I.Q. of toilet paper, to do everything. You people sicken me. You expect far to much of the inanimate world. The inanimate world, on the otherhand, expects nothing of you. Which is exactly what it gets. If you expect nothing, and get nothing, you feel nothing. If you expect nothing and get something, you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re happy. But, if you expect something and get something you feel nothing. And if you expect something and get nothing, you feel cheated. If you\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\- \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'re

barnet ikke barnHello, everyone! This is one of the weirdest sites: or your money back! We have ZIM, neopets, music, and much, much, more. E-mail us for questions, comments, complaints and information. Why not click on the Very Weird Stuff link to see more, or click on the music link? We have halloween and christmas pictures on the NeoPics link. Cheese is not a wild thing!!!!!!!!! Now I have decided to go for a world record. I will try to make the longest web page ever, made completely out of text! Won't that be fun? I will just type, and type, and never, ever use copy and paste. Wow...I really must be bored. Just goes to show what boredom can do to you. Any way, that's it for now. Wait, no it isn't, I still have to keep going, and going, and going. Because I do. THE REST OF THE STUFF I TYPE WILL BE COMPLETLY IN CAPS JUST BECAUSE I CAN. THAT IS ALL. SEEYA! Hi, I'm back. So far this is nowhere near the world record. I think. I don't exactly know where it is...oh, well. I'll just have to do the very best that I can. No one is really coming here, anyway. So it doesn't matter. By the way, TAB is a worthwhile, community-service organization. The form link is to a 100% fake TAB registration form that you can fill out just for laughs. I can't believe I'm bothering to do this. I have very low expectations of my site. None ever comes here, I could do this all day long and I still wouldn't have any more hits. This is just a pointless excursive in spelling errors and grammatical imprecision. May your day be shiney! The following is an extremely weird poem-thingy that I wrote when I was in a relatively weird mood:
never mind that noise my dear can anyone pass the cheese only if you say pretty please oh, boy do I have to sneeze. why must everyone always rhyme, why I’m a poet and don’t I know it? what I fear comes right after here not this life or the next will I ever be able to pass the test? we’re stuck in here, (alone my dear) and we’ll problem never get out so don’t start to shout. it’s dark and I want to go home is where the heart was where is it now? we’ll never know but oh crap it’s starting to snow and it’s time to show and tell about the well that you found last summer at camp when it was damp it was near the ramp oh god why must this be I liked that tree but now it’s gone, farewell so long I’ll miss you as long as you write but then I’m afraid to say good-night. my dear there’s nothing to fear that’s only a box that’s made of blocks next to the wagon that looks like a dragon why are you shaking it’s your fear that is making you shiver and act all a quiver. don’t you know that you only need be afraid of fear and never anything here and certainly not a post that acts like a ghost?
See, very weird. At least it fills up my word quota for the day. Not that I exactly have a word quota for the day. It just sounded very professional to say it. Anyway, I still don't think that anyone is actually coming here. You'd have to be an absolute loser (or really bored) to come here. I'd probley come here, but that isn't much of a surprise. After all, I've been to the Really Really Big Button That Doesn't Do Anything website over 50 times. Pathetic. But, whatever. As long as I'm happy, right. Humor the crazy person, okay? Oh, guess what? According to someone you problem don't know, this is the second most pointless website ever! Next to the Really Big Button, of course. I feel special. Come on everyone, group hug. Okay, now I'm starting to scare myself...I'm gonna quit for today. Seeya. Now I'm back. Is this getting confusing to you? Too bad. Now I want you to go to http://quiz.ravenblack.net/blood.pl?biter=eon" If you do this I'll get points in the game. Come on all you non-existing people! Help me! You know you want to! It's a worthy cause! Honestly, the more time I waste playing the game, the less time I'll work on this site and the less stuff you gotta read. Although why you'd be here if you didn't want to read is beyond me. Maybe you're lost. Okay, if you want to get out, click the little refresh button, okay? Good...what? You say it didn't let you out? Oh, well. You must be caught in a time warp. Keep pressing it. Maybe you'll break free. What's that. The little counter at the bottom keeps going up? Never mind. That's just how many times you have to click before you can leave. Good-bye.

Hey, I'm once again: back. I don't suppose you fell for that little thing about the refresh button. After all, you're a responsible, intelligent person who apparently has a lot of time on your hands. Well, you can't possibly have more time than I do. I mean, after all, I made this site. You're only browsing it. And most people don't even come here. Not even my friends...*sniffle* The just ignore this poor, pathetic little page. All they do is fill out the TAB form and leave. I think. Maybe they're here right now! HI! HOW ARE YOU DOING? I'M FINE! THANKS FOR COMING! YES, I'M YELLING! Who am I kidding. This page won't get a single hit, unless I bribe people...now that has possibilities. Okay, fill out the TAB form, so I have proof that you bothered to come here and...uh...I'll...uh...send you a sandwich? Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery. I'm bored. I'm gonna go hug a moose. MOOSE! I love-d you moose! Hey, I'm back again! Yea...*waits for applause* okay! Now I want all you loyal fans...*cricket chirps* to go to the link to see what I'm like. I took a whole bunch of personality quizzes and posted them there. I'm an evil villain, kitty and a freakazoid so far. And I only took the quiz once, too. Spooky how accurate they are...anyway, I command you to go! I'm going. I'm back. I'm gonna start counting how many times I say back. Let's see: 1...2...3...4...5! Wow. I must really be desperate for something to do. I now officially have proof that someone has been here! It was one of my friends. Apparently this page really is getting long, because my friend said something to that effect. Maybe. Anyway, moving on! I'm just basically typing nothing. Just like all those reports people have to do. You know? With a specific number of words. They start out with half that number, and then just fill in words until they have the right amount. I salute those people. You're great tradition is being carried out here, on the second most pointless site ever! Well. Maybe eventually some weird, bored person will wander onto my site on accident and be mildly entertained be my site until they wander onto a live video feed of a coffee maker. Or maybe not. I only know that I'm entertaining me, which was my original goal. So. I've done what I've set out to accomplish. Yea, me! I'm so special. You see, most people, they don't like reading or writing. So if you're not most people, you've made it down this far without skipping, skimming or getting the spark notes version. (Which I think does not exist) My point is, if you've bothered to read this, then, (like me) you probley have also read the ketchup bottle so many times that you have it down verbatim. Look verbatim up. It's a word. But, you should know that, since you like reading. Or maybe you're just skimming. Anyway, there's nothing wrong with reading food labels. You might be asked a question about them on a quiz show. And now, for the million-dollar question: How many calories are there in a single serving of Mustard? I can just see it now...It could be called Know-Your-Food. Or You are What you Eat. It'd probley be as popular as those game shows that no one's ever heard of. Speaking of food, what's up with pie? There's strawberry pie, apple, pumpkin and so many others, but there is no grape pie! I know. I'm just as upset about this unfortunate lack of development in the pie division. Think about it. Grapes are used to make jelly, jam, juice and raisins. What makes them undesirable for pie? Would they dry into raisins? Couldn't you just stick some jelly in a piecrust and bake it? It just doesn't make any sense. Another thing that bothers me is organ grinders. You know, the foreign guys with the bellhop hats and the little music thingy and the cute little monkey with the bellhop hat who collects the money? Okay. They're basically begging on the street. How did they ever afford an organ-thingy? Wouldn't it make more sense to get a kazoo, if you're broke? And if they're so poor, what possessed them to buy a monkey? I mean, I don't think I could afford a monkey, and I'm not exactly on the streets. Obviously I at least have a computer...so, back to the organ grinders. I would have sold the monkey and the organ and been able to eat for at least a year. Or, if I was weirder than I am, I could at least kill the monkey with the organ and eat it. Why on earth did they keep the monkey? It must have cost a fortune to feed...not to mention the mess. That's just one of those many facts of life that are better left mysteries. Especially since no one but me would ask the question. I better go. I think I hear a monkey...Okay...now I'm back. That's the sixth time I've said back! I realize that this longest text ever must be very boring and not worth anyone's time. But I'd like to take this time to thank the 2 and 1/2 people in the entire universe who have bothered to read this entire thing. I'm not exactly sure who they are, but: thanks! Right now, my spacebar is malfunctioning...that's not good...I have to press it two or three times just to insert a freaking space. Maybe the evil little faeries with the sharp little teeth have put their evil faerie dust on my computer. Or maybe not. This is too frustrating. Goodbye for now...Now I'm back. And still frustrated. But for a different reason. Today I had the misfortune of playing a Treasure Planet game on neopets.com It was terrible. Apparently the point of the game was to get your character to shout "Whoo-Hoo!" as many times as possible before you splattered your brains on the rocks, all the while listening to a soundtrack that is similar to a dying ceiling fan. Of course, when I started out I accidentally hit the rocks approximately three million times. Halfway though I used my four remaining brain-cells to decide that the game was dumb. So my goal changed from surviving to laughing evilly while my character died. So the game naturally did everything it could to preserve my life. The stupid game is still going on and I refuse to quit because I want my points. My character is actually dodging the stupid rocks better now then when I controlled him. I hate irony. Seeya. Okay. Now I'm back again. Today I added an update page, which is basically a less chaotic, outlined version of this without all the ranting. It's more like techno talk about arrays and how much I suck and whether or not the Braves will win this year. Okay, the whole braves thing is made up. But everything else I've said so far is true. I think. Maybe I should start on a boring disclaimer...Eh-hem. All contents of this site were designed for entertainment purposes only. Any use thereof that is not stated in the above mentioned statement would make the author, hereby referred to as Patron Saint of Paper Clips, very angry. Should you violate the purpose of this site: i.e. become not entertained, the Patron Saint of Paper Clips will be forced to take drastic measures. This is specified in Code: 343 of the Flaming Chicken Handbook. Ooooo…that’s a great idea! I’m gonna start quoting from the Flaming Chicken Handbook! Code: 343 of the Flaming Chicken Handbook states that the Patron Saint of Paper Clips (that’s me) is allowed to cause vague, pain like sensations while the offending person (or alien life form, dog, etc.) isn’t paying attention. Now I have a purpose in life! To make up quotes from the non-existent Flaming Chicken Handbook, which I’m sure you have a copy of. No? Too bad. It’s in the mail, I promise! Now I must take my leave…and remember. Cheese is watching. Okay...I'm back...I think that eventually half of this thing will consist of the word back over and over again...that's just weird. Which fits the motif of the rest of the site. There's even a money back guarantee. Isn’t' that nice? See? Now no one can ever say that I don't take care of my viewers. Especially since I don't have viewers. I have readers. Wait...I really don't even know if anyone bothers to read this. Even if I put it in a less chaotic, more user-friendly format people would still ignore this because it involves: reading. Yes. Sad to admit, but the majority of people would rather read the summary at the back of a book rather than the whole book itself. What has the world come to? It's pathetic. Especially since I'm bothering to write all this. It's not fair! Why can't I have more readers?! All the other internet writers have nothing on me, except they're better at advertising, having a central theme/plot and basically more talented. Whereas I'm more into the whole ranting and raving stage right now. Plus, I am horrible at spelling. Which is bad. Thank the powers that be for spell-check. The single greatest invention of the computer gods. I'm getting bored, so I think I'm done for the day. May your day be shiney! I'm back again! And I feel weird! I found at that yet another one of my friends is reading this. Creepy. Just how much time do they have on their hands. Perhaps their just trying to be nice. I can just see it now...an organization devoted not to feeding the hungry, or peace, or love or whatever, but to giving recognition to all those poor, pathetic, unpopular websites. I wonder what it's name would be. Don't Ignore Sites? Would it be called DIS? Isn't that like a slang term for an insult? Would that be considered poetic justice, or just a nice coincidence? And why do I even care? I'll tell you why. Because I have nothing else to do right now. I could be playing neopets, but ever since my bad experience with Treasure Planet, I don't feel like it. Oh, by the way, I noticed that whenever I use spell-check, my stupid computer turns the word probley into to word problem. To prevent this, I did nothing. So, it is now up to you, the imaginary reader, to decide whether I mean probley or problem...it's almost like a game! But without the bad sound track. And I promise not to force you to live when you would rather die. Moving on, I have nothing else to say, but don't feel like quitting just yet. I'm like the little engine that could. Or maybe the Energizer Bunny. I just keep going, and going and going. Or I could be like that annoying guy on T.V. who keeps asking if you can hear him. If my site manages to last a decade, my readers *snicker* will probley wonder what I'm talking about. My answer is simple. It doesn't matter. I'm just rambling. Which means that it doesn't matter if you understand anything I say. Doesn't that make you feel better? I bet it does. Wow. Look how long this has gotten. I even impress myself. Who would have thought I have this much free time? And I congratulate any reader who has gotten this far. Ooooooo! You must check out the fortunes section of the random stuff page! I've just gotten an idea for some more, original, fortunes...I gotta go!(may the moose be with you) And now I am back. I swear. If iI fill out the fake tab form I'm gonna have to put back as my favorite word...I already have filled it out, though. Would it be cheating to fill it out again? Only if I had multiple personalities. Or would it be cheating if I didn't have multiple personalities? The world may never know. Just like how many licks it takes to get to the bottom of a tootsie pop. Would it vary? The number of licks, I mean. Someone could have super-disolving spit, or watery-spit. Or what if you took big ol' slobbery licks? Does the commercial take that into account? No. It doesn't. And let me tell you, it's an outrage. It deludes all of American's sweet, innocent, candy-loving children into thinking that a cartoon owl is smarter than they are! "Mr. Owl, can you tell us how many licks does it take to get to the bottom of a tootsie pop?" Or whatever. And "Mr. Owl" replies "One...Twoo...Three! Chomp" And he bites it. That teaches our youth that it's okay to agree to help someone, and then ruin their experiment. Well...it's not. I am going to start a protest group. Teens Against Cartoon Owls. We could call ourselves TACO! I love the little tacos, I love them good! That is a direct quote from GIR, co-star and comic-relief on INVADER ZIM. Hmmmm...intersting. I put hyphens in both of his titles...it must be a conspiracy! I gotta go. Those TACO buttons don't make themselves, you know. I'm back again. And not so cheesed off about the whole tootsie roll pop thing. Right now, I have another twenty minutes on the Internet before I'm gonna watch T.V. And I can't think of anything else to do. So, predictably, here I am. It's not like I have anything better to do. Obviously, you know this. After all, look how long this text is. I wonder if I've made the world record? If I did, would I stop this? Why bother asking? I'll will most likely still be adding to this on my death bed. Hmmmmm...has any old, senile person ever written anything? Was it coherent? Did it make more sense that this text? Is it possible to make less sense? Am I enjoying asking retorical questions? Yes. Yes, I am. But I seriously wonder what something written by a senile person would be like. I've heard of poems and stuff written by people who were high, insane or paranoid. But never senile. Can a senile person write? Aren't they regressed to a child-like state? Does it even matter? Is anyone even reading this? Did I resume asking retorical questions? Do you care? Is this eating up time? I feel like I'm playing questions only on whose line is it anway. I probley should have capitalized something, or underlined but I'm feeling lazy...hey, you try to keep your two and a half readers happy! It's really stressfull. Someday, I'm gonna snap and just delete this entire thing. Gee, I hope not! I worked sorta hard on this. It's great for making random topics weave together to form an overall infrastructure of chaos. That made little sense. That's why it's here, and not some critically acclaimed site. Ooooooooooooo! I'm gonna quote from the FLAMING CHICKENS HANDBOOK again! Yep! I bet you were just breathless in anticipation. Okay. Here goes. Code: 472 of the Flaming Chickens Handbook states that this site in no way aknowledges the existance of other, better sites (hereon reffered to as the Losers) The Losers are a myth. The Patron Saint of Paper Clips (me again!) claims no knowledge as to where that particullary nasty rumor started, but confirms that this is the best site ever. It would be a sin against humanity for a better site to exist. Should you refuse to aknowledge the Patron Saint of Paper Clips as the ruler of the Internet, you will be subjected to punishment as stated in Code 343 of the Flaming Chicken Handbook (i.e. Experience vague, pain-like sensations when you're not paying attention) This has been a public service announcement. This is a test, I repeat only a test. Had this been an actual emergency, we would have bought up all the can openers and charged 3 cows and a pig for each one. I repeat, lock all you doors and windows, this is it. I repeat, there is nothing to worry about. Everything is fine. The end is not here. I'm going, you're on you're own! Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm back!*smiles brightly* And apparantly delusional! Anyway, I just finished rereading my longest text ever. And I became inspired to talk about nothing. You see, I periodically read the longest text ever to check the constant downward spiral of my sanity. Hmmm...I seem to be entertaining myself though, even while reading what I wrote. Which is why I still go to the Really Really Big Button That Doesn't Do Anything website. Because I am easily amused and have lots and lots of time on my hands. Maybe, some day far in the future (like next Thursday) I'll print a copy of this insane text. And then go door to door distributing it. Eventually, this would become a monthly tradition. Whole families would gather around their front door, in breathless anticipation while they attempted to barracade me out. I can just see the whole community rising to thwart my attempts to spread love, joy and insane chaos. I probley wouldn't actually print this out (think how much paper it would take!) but if I do, only friends and enemies will receive copies. Hmmmm...maybe my condition is worsening. Or not. I'm still peeved about the cartoon owl from the Tootsie Roll Pop commercials. He is pure evil. TACO will eventually destroy him. Unless he has already been destroyed by an even more radical Anti-Cartoon-Owl group. I hope not. Or, would that be good? I suppose I could let someone else have the glory. After all, I'm not in this line of buisness for the fame, fortune and power. What line of buisness, do you ask? Why, the assasinating annoying cartoon characters buisness. (Actually I just question them untill they spontaneously combust, I ask lots of questions) So, in conclusion, ladies and gentleman of the jury(that's you) I could not have possibly tortured "Mr. Owl" to death. I love owls. Hmm...I seem to be jumping from one subject to another more frequently. Either I am growing more comfortable with my on-line writing, or I am progressivly getting more insane and chaotic. I also am psyco-analyzing myself a lot today...hmmmm...I'm even saying "hmmmmm..." a lot. Just like a real psychologist. Hmmmmmmm. Time for another boring disclaimer!!!!!!! Code: 742 of the Flaming Chickens Handbook states that in no part does the Patron Saint of Paper Clips (That's still me!) actually claim to be mentally ill. That's either a) a publicity stunt b) An attempt at humor c) a cry for help or d) none of the above You can e-mail your responses by conducting a scavenger hunt of this site. Some of the pages of this site contain a link encouging the two and a half people to e-mail the Patron Saint of Paper Clips. There may also be evil little links that are designed to confuse you. These links send stuff to someone named johnjones333@hotmail.com The Patron Saint of Paper Clips does not know who this individual is, but sincerly wishes that you send all your hate mail to him. Not that the aformentioned individual claims to have received hate mail (or mail of any kind) via a website link. Thank-you for your time. Remember to send your answers to my sanity quiz to the e-mail account, flamingchickens333@hotmail.com Oh, and once I refer to myself in the first person again, the handbook quote is over. I just thought that I might like to mention that. Oh. You're still here. I figured you rush right on over to e-mail me. Perhaps you don't have time to waste e-mailing me. HA! HA! HA! That's funny!!!! If you you don't have time to waste, what are you doing here?!!! Oh, who am I kidding. I figure that even the people I manage to lure onto my site from neopets don't even bother to come to this particular page. Maybe I should make the link come here directly...Hey! What a good idea! That way I can spread my love, joy and insane chaos to more people! I'm a genius. Gotta go, must lure innocent victems to the second most pointless site ever!!!! I'm back. And really angry, and confused. I've always known that I was weird, that's always been a given. But now I realize that I am considerably more normal than the rest of my family. Today we had a "family outing." Now, most families will go bowling, or putt-putt golfing. They may go to a resteraunt with an arcarde, or the movies or to a theme park. Not my family! No, we got the greatest family outing of all. We got to go to a bar and play pool!!!!!*waits for readers to become insanely jealous* Yep, that's right, a bar with a pool table! Not only did we get world class cuisine (under-cooked hotdogs and over-cooked hamburgers), my little sister (age 10) got taught pool by someone I strongly supect is an ex-convict! Naturally when it was announced that we'd be eating dinner in this place, I could hardly contain my excitment(I glared at my mother and asked why we couldn't go to Pizza Hut) When we arrived, we were promptly served (after thirty minutes) In the meantime, we played a family game of pool(my parents played while my brother and sister and I watched) After two rousing rounds, our food came. The food was superb, (our food came the exact opposite of how we ordered it, and half of the onion rings were missing) Then we joyfully returned to our game(my sister and the ex-con played my mom) We spent hours there (from 5p.m.-7:15p.m.) There were many people that were the same age as me and my siblings (no one in the room but us were under 30) Us kids had to be dragged kicking and screaming from the bar ( I almost fell asleep during the last game I watched) As we left, there was a feeling of goodwill and fellowship between all(my sister locked me out of the car and wouldn't let me in untill I started yelling profanity in her general direction) The high point of the entire night was when my mother gave me $21 for my report card. She promptly borrowed $1 to help with the waitresses tip(This part I'm not being sarcastic about) All in all it was a night I'll remember forever (as the lowest point in "family outing"history, except for that time my mom dragged me to a church thing on the concept of truth.) My brother(age 13) even decided upon a new job he wants when he's old enough to work, a busboy at the bar. We had to tell him that he would probley have to wait untill he was 21.(Absolutly nothing about that statement was sarcastic) As you can see, I love my families outings(Not unless you're blind...or stupid) &#!#%&&!!!(*%$ WHAT THE %$#@ WAS MY MOTHER $#$#%$# THINKING!!!!!!!???? BRINGING $#$$# KIDS IN A BAR!? I know it was her idea, 'cause my dad hates it, too. My mom and my stupid little 10-year old sister loves it, though. *sighs* Why does my life have to be so weird? I'm leaving...now I'm back! And not so pissed at my weird family. Now is the time to mourn the loss of one of my most loyal readers (I think she's read the entire thing one time, which is more than anyone else has done so far) She has been banned from accesing any portion of the Internet, do to reasons that must remain confidental due to security reasons. If I told you, I'd have to kill you and all that stuff. So...now I am down to one and a half readers. Untill such time that I have more. I wonder why anyone would read this? You would have to have several characteristics that I possess. First of all, you'd have to have an extrodinary amount of free time. Second of all, you would have to have the patience to read through all of this. And lastly, you'd have to know where the heck this site is. I admit it. I haven't exactly advertised this site. Nor can I find it on any search engines. Some of my pages have stuff written in to make search engines recognize me, but it doesn't seem to be working. What must I do to rise above obscurity? I tell people I know about this site, but they either ignore this page, or don't even bother coming to the site in the first place. I suppose that is the bane of all authors. To pour your heart and soul into a passage, and have everyone ignore it. *sniffle* Why must this be? Maybe I should just give up. After all, no one would really care if I quit updating this site. But I can't help but think of stuff like the evil over lord list and REALLY REALLY BIG BUTTON THAT DOESN'T DO ANYTHING. They are not great neccesarily because of the content, (although that helps some) they are great because of their sheer length. You can read a little each day. And almost never finish. Also, I guess I still am trying to get the world record. I have heard some feedback suggesting that I make someway for people to remember where they stopped reading. It can be very confusing, especially if you weren't paying attention in the first place. Well, I dont want to organize this page, in any manner. This is chaos. And insanity. Not neat little text in classifiable rows, in alphabetical order. If you want neat, go to some other site(though, as mentioned in Flaming Chickens Code:472 there is no such thing as a site better than this one). Otherwise, I guess you're stuck with me. Awwwww...I'm touched! You didn't run screaming to another site, thankfull for the chance to escape this insanity. You're still here, which must mean that you'd rather be here than anywhere else! Hey, where are you going?! I thought you were gonna stay here and keep me company?! *drags reader back* See, I knew you'd stay! *gagged reader glares* What's that? I know this is the best site ever, thanks for the compliment! *reader starts inching towards freedom* I better go...I think that I may have a problem brewing. I'm back. And very concerned about this new, younger generation (all 10 year olds who were born in 1992) They are supposed to be the future. Instead they appear to be a nuclear armagedon in the form of a fifth grader. I chanced to have an interview with an informant from this evil generation (my little sister) who will be called Mrs. X for security reasons (no, she's not married, the "Mrs" makes it good as a disguise) I was quizing Mrs. X on Civil War History for an upcoming test in her classroom (whose location can not be devulged) Mrs. X seemed fluent in the subject. Using prior knowledge, I deduced that Mrs. X was full of crap. Out of sheer curiosity, I asked Mrs. X who participated in the Civil War. She immediatly replied "Clara Barton". I clarified, which countries fought in the Civil War. She answered: England, Russia, and (out of sheer desperation) Iraq. I believe that she was just listing countries she knows America has fought against. Now, correct me if I'm wrong...but Iraq? I don't know if Iraq even existed in the Civil War Era! Why on earth would we go have way across the world to fight them when we didn't even really need oil?!! Moving on, I finaly managed to coax my sister (I'm tired of writing Mrs. X) to tentativly guess that America fought in the Civil War. I mean, who'd a thought? America? Fighting in the American Civil War? In a moment of inspiration, I asked her who America fought. Her first guess was enslaved africans. Well, at least she knows that slaves were involved in the war. Before she could start listing all of America's enemies, I gave her a hint. I said "The Union fought..." With a crack, snaple and pop, some random synapses in her brain connected in the right order and she said "CONFEDERACY!!!" I was very proud of her, just as you would be proud of a two-year-old who has just announced: "I WENT POO-POO ON THE POTTY!!!!!" What I mean is, you wouldn't be very proud if the average person said that they just took a dookey on the toilet, and you wouldn't be very proud if they knew who fought against the Union in the Civil War. I confirmed that the Union was Northern and Free, and that the Confederacy was Southern and Slave. We resumed quizzing and she got every question on the worksheet correct. This is because she memorizes the questions. That way, she can pass the test without actually learning anything. You see, if you memorize stuff, you only have to remember that the answer to number 6 is Clara Barton for a week, rather than having to remember that Clara Barton started the Red Cross for the rest of you life. I sincerely appologize if anyone is offended by my view of memorization. I also would like such persons to immediatly leave my site. You don't belong here. You see...knowledge is good. If my sister...uh...Mrs. X were ever asked a question on the Civil War on a quiz show, she'd come up with nothing. With knowledge you can win money and the opportunity to look like a dork on national television. My sister is a big believer in the memorization system. I previous time when I was studying with her (American Revolution, this time) I was trying to help her remember the difference between the Patriots(Patriotic to America) and the Loyalists (Loyal to Britain) She didn't know what the word patriotic meant. I tried to explain. I asked her how you dress on the forth of july (she said nice) I asked what the colors red, white and blue were (pretty). I gave up in exasperation. More recently, I was trying to instill a sense of empathy and niceness in her. I asked her what the golden rule of christianity was. She didn't know. When I pressed her, she confessed she didn't know what chrisianity was. Completly defeated, I told her that it was the religion she practiced every Sunday when she went with her friends to church. This confirmed my suspicion that she only went so that she could have the use of the church's playground equipment. My family also strongly suspects that she stole $20 from the donation thingy. Anyway, that's my rant on the new generation that contains my little sister. When someone of her generation runs for president, I'm gonna do a complete background check. If they're anything like my sister, I'm movin' to Canada. Gotta go...the Russian-Brittish-Iraqi-enslaved-Africans are coming to defeat the Mexicans. I'm back! *there's that darn cricket again* And I have a genuine question to ask all of my loyal readers *cough-cough* Okay, here it is: Is it normal for a non-gender specific sibling to carry around various dead reptiles (snakes, turtles, lizards etc.) Furthormore, is it considered accepted behavior to talk to these dead reptiles, in a cooey, baby talky kind of voice? Finnaly, is it expected for said sibling's non-gender specific parent to encourage such behavior
