Oh come on, touching your toes is not a problem! All you need is a comfortable easy chair and a modicum of good will: relax, twist lightly a thigh, bend the knee just enough to bring the shin on top of the other thigh... and as by magic your toes will be within reach :tearlaugh:

Seas crash upon long dragon-guarded shores,
Bursting crimson moons of burning spray,
And iron castles ope to me their doors,
And serpent-women lure with harp and lay.
The misty waves shake now to phantom oars ---
Seek not for me, I sail to meet the day.

"Deep in my dream the great bird whispered queerly
 Of the black cone amid the polar waste;
 Pushing above the ice-sheet lone and drearly,
 By storm-crazed aeons battered and defaced.
 Hither no living earth-shapes take their courses,
 And only pale auroras and faint suns
 Glow on that pitted rock, whose primal sources
 Are guessed at dimly by the Elder Ones."

Well, this might annoy a few folks but stop and ponder the words first, then go forward ..

Have you noticed all the bumper stickers on cars stating that they love some one with insert "any disability"

Why do we need a qualifier, I thought we were supposed to love all ... regardless.

So when do you think we would see a bumper sticker saying "I love someone who is healthy"

I think there is to much emphasis placed on what is wrong with a person instead of just accepting that person. Why dost one have to make ado about whatever disability or affliction one deals with in their life?

Just curious

Shockingly, I agree with you: Extending to all qualifiers. Why do we have to qualify ourselves? Why can't we just be 'a human being' with all it's flaws and exist as That, instead of making ourselves somehow special when we all have issues, flaws and problems. If we were perfect, we wouldn't be here.

I told him I got 9 to 10 hours per night over the past couple of months, he said that was to much. I have there fore concluded to keep my doctor happy, say nothing and pay your bill on time. :sure:

Subtle: The word is pronounced like "suttle" and it was originally spelled that way when it was borrowed from Old French, but the b got imported to make the word look more like its ultimate source, the Latin adjective subtilis.

But, for the poor fish that had to put up with the mess it made. Did you know to this very day if you fish at this harbour using a hook bated with a tea bag no fish will approach your hook.

Quite interesting.  I never used tea bags before bait, but there always a first time I guess.  It could be the brand or type of tea that repels fish.  I wonder if Jasmine or Oolong would work?

Although, I would consider the hair style in the vid to be more of a top knot then a man bun.

And supposedly according to the web there is a difference twixt the two.


The difference between a top knot and a man bun is that a top knot only requires the hair on the top of the head to be tied into the bun while the hair on the sides and back of the head is not tied and is kept shorter than the hair on the top. The hair length for the hair on the top of the head is between six and eight inches. On the other hand, a man bun has all the hair on the head tied into the bun so the hair on the sides and back of the head is just as long (or very close) as the hair on the top of the head.

If the hair on the sides and back of the head is buzzed into an undercut haircut while the hair is long than eight inches on the top of the head, then you have a man bun undercut hairstyle and not a top knot. The main requirement for the top knot is that the hair on the top never exceed eight inches in length. This minimum hair length for the top knot is what makes the bun in the topknot look so small and hence the "knot" name for the bun.

When I say things like that, I'm usually rolling too - my eyes.

Technical is terribly boring. It doesn't leave any room for thinking outside of boxes or looking at big pictures.

Then again, I may understand why you're that way due to things you've said regarding your self.

The Terra Cotta warriors at Xi'an:  many have what appears to be a rather tall, standing bun or knot that makes Toshiro's little knot look undernourished. They're probably close to 4" tall, I'd say. And rather thick. Seems a better way to yank warriors up to heaven than by that little folded over ponytail thing. At least to me :winks:

Would it not depend on who (whom) you were ego tripping on or to. ;perplexed:

Alan Wilson Watts was a British philosopher who interpreted and popularised Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. (Wikipedia). He was a Zen Master and a Guru. So it's not exactly what you think. (me)

Eastern philosophy holds that we are all part of a great Whole, and for us to imagine that we are individuals is to separate ourselves from That Which Created Us and All Else created with us. It is our greatest egotism and arrogance to imagine we are separate from the All. We are not. So essentially your ego is a construction of your own mind, and thinking you have to get rid of it gives it reality, which it doesn't really possess.

The bumper-sticker I saw on the subject was the same idea, but a little different:

"HIRE A TEENAGER - While they still know everythinng."

From the Web
Not-so Childrens Nursery Rhymes


Mary had a little lamb,
Her father shot it dead.
Now Mary takes the lamb to school,
Between two hunks of bread.


Mary had a little sheep,
And with the sheep she went to sleep,
The sheep turned out to be a ram,
And Mary had a little lamb.


Mary had a little lamb,
She tied it to a pylon.
10,000 volts went up its ass,
And turned its wool to nylon.


Mary had a little lamb
And now I've had enough
Of this stupid girl called Mary
And her woolly bit of muff

The moon blesses our evening with soft gentle light
The breeze carries the sweet scent of nature for our senses delight


each day and night changes with the seasons
All we need do is relax and enjoy

Lol.... Yes, I play it a lot but the MS version doesn't have blanks. They have the white dragons instead - or the one I have does. I know there's an 'American version' but I don't know enough about the Chinese version to know the difference between them. I know it's different and the American version might even be different from what is the digital game. I used to work for an old Chinese man who was an avid player but he's long gone, so I can't ask - sadly.

Nope....I'm not up on the Chinese version either.  Back in the day it was one of my Mothers favorite games she played on the tablet I got her for Christmas.  Unfortunately she's got to the point where turning it on and finding the games is to confusing for her.

So now I get her those handheld games such as Yahtzee, Solitaire, Blackjack, etc...she loves them....

Not to quote myself, but must: 

Here, I say 'supposedly' because I know it says that on-line. However this is not my original understanding of the blanks.
I've had to think about it and where it came from in my head because it's all tied up in a story I wrote a long time ago.
It has to do with the blank tiles being Jokers. I just remembered that. I couldn't remember if I made it up or not. LOL.
So in thinking that far and reading about the Jokers, I find that in the American version of Mahjong there are 8 Jokers.
That's strictly American, but either 4 or 8 is the number of blank tiles generally. I think that's where I got that idea in my head.

So, they take the place of a tile that's missing to make three, four or more in a set of tiles in your hand you can 'go out' with to win.

I learn something new everyday.  I never knew that.....and all this time I avoided the blanks LOLOL....Damn good thing I don't play these games for money.

Publishers Clearing House has a bunch of Mahjong games you can play but they are called "Minute Rounds"  You've got ONE MINUTE to solve the game and move to the next one.  Based on how fast you are you win coins. 

They have another section where you can use your "Coins" (Coins are free based on which games you play...and you get more coins if you look at all the items they want to sell you LOLOLOL) and they are not timed games but full scale Mahjong....Haven't played those yet.

I have seen Joker tiles before but they were not blank. I got this info from the internet.


Joker tiles (百搭牌, pinyin bǎidāpái) can be used to replace any suited or honor tile in putting together a hand subject to local restrictions. Four jokers are sometimes used in certain variants of Southeast Asian and Chinese mahjong, including Shanghainese mahjong.


There can be eight jokers in American Mahjong.

If your first thing about them either being, white dragons or extra tiles to replace missing ones: then wouldn't the white dragons be blank if in a standard white tile set, not a specially designed set with actual white dragons on dark tiles?

There are too many variations in the tiles and sets and rules to argue.

One day, while Nan-ch'uan was living in a hut in the mountains, a strange monk visited him.

Nan-ch'uan greeted him saying, "Please make yourself at home," and then left to work in the fields. He worked hard all day and came home hungry and tired.

The stranger had cooked a big meal for himself, threw out the leftover food and broke the utensils, and went to sleep. When Nan-ch'uan stretched himself out sleep, the monk got up and left.

Years later, Nan-ch'uan told his story to his disciples. commenting, "He was such a good monk, I miss him even now."

Not used but not forgotten J. Some things are best for private viewing.
Also currently watching 'Tenchi Muyo! War on Geminar'. That fulfills my anime needs.

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world.

You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.
