Oh, Hell. Now we go full circle to that "We are stardust" (on Angel dust) guff of half a century ago?! :? :roll: Damn Hippies. I knew we should've killed em all in 'Nam.

"Far out, man." Alas the physics and cosmology is wrong, wrong, wrong.
A goodly chunk of your atoms never saw the inside of a star. Odds are, none of them well ever be in a star again. (After passing through gazillions of: vacuoles, roots, kidneys, and bowels; your remains will eventually grow cold and dark, in a dead black void. Good times! :P )

Now now, don't be misleading, it wont be that bad, his remains will merely grow tepid and dark; yay for heat death :)

Munsi's remains will be relatively cold, until AGW turns Canada tropical. Then it will be quite pleasant.

Heat death or universal yo-yo. The jury's still out on that one. Depends if they find dark matter. Only the shadow knows.

Please Don't RIP Me!

As I stood over my "Dear Friend" Raymon's grave, I had no idea that the last ritual component of zombie-making was urine.

Only works if you're getting rid of the beer you drank with the 'deceased' within the last hour.

This reminds me of the story of the too Irish drinking buddies who promised to pour a bottle of fine Irish whiskey over the grave of whoever went first...

AFA (*away from Armageddon*)

Post by melliema » Mon Jul 26, 2010 8:37 pm

New here, thought I'd introduce myself with a Twabble.
Terrible stage-fright.

God had cancelled Armageddon again: "busy creating humanity 2.0."
Bah! Satan sighed. Like it would work out this time!


Hey everybody! 8)

edited: Twabble formatted into two paragraphs like @dreamrock suggested. Thanks!

Welcome to the board, Melliema! Quite an auspicious first post.

Since spaces, line feeds, etc. don't count into the total number of characters, I'd format it so a second paragraph starts with Bah!. It's a little easier to parse that way.

Can't wait to see more!

Don't be afraid. Just picture your audience in their underwear.
Usually a pretty accurate picture.

Well, @strawman, if what I am picturing is accurate - wow!!!!! SO GLAD to be here, though I've got stage fright AND performance anxiety now.
Thanks a lot! ;-)
