Well, one wouldn't, because that would require naturing the proteins and then mantling the egg. I can't see it being an aster at all.

Mind you, I think it would be possible to velop a photograph.

Experiment I ran this morning[4]:

Waffle House Waitress: "eweno wacha waant?"
Me: "Yes, I'd like you two egs lightly unscambled please"
WHW: "Wot:?"
Me: "two eggs lightly unscrambled"
WHW: "Eyem Sorry Sir, I donno what you mean...how do wan you them eggs?"
Me: "I want you to uncook them, scrambled please"
WHW: "Ru makin' fun of me?"
Me: "Why no Ma'am, you are a queen in a conch, a florence nightengale of early morning fried fare, I would never make fun of a woman wearing such tasteful, attractive, yet sensible footware. I want you to uncook my eggs please."
WHW: "Umeen you wanna'em raw?"
Me: "Er...one *could* look at it that way but I believe it violates the basic premise of what was originally proposed and it would be a circumnavigation of the primary issue to arrive more safely at the same construct--but it while it accomplishes the same thing, the two matters bare little more than a passing resemblence to each other; for if you review the conversation as it has proceed thusly, you will find that I do not seek an uncooked (i.e. raw) egg, but instead my holy grail is that much more complicated issue of an egg that has *been uncooked*, you see my proposition is based on the egg arriving at the gridle in *an already cooked state* to be restored to its former ovulate glory, while your sullied thinking has us eating a embryonic chicken in its natural condition hardly having said hello to, much less met the grill, I think that even your plebian brain cinched in by your cheap spandex girdle and your bargin bottle blonde hair can juxtapose the two and clearly discern the difference in the two arguments and realize that a fundamental difference exists!"
WHW to cook: "Two raw egs, beat 'em"

[4]: The experiment was run at Gedanken Industries, Inc. They told me my question was stupid and I should just think of what would happen. $10,000 and all I got was a wad of brown shipping paper on the center of which is supposedly written a 37 1/2 line haiku entitled: "Stupid People Who Unwad Origami Boulder to Read Haiku"--but I can't even be sure that's actually there, cause...well, I don't want to mess up my sculpture, I think the expression of all modern art as trash, or is it vice a versa, that make this work so important, it symbolizes our culture's moral decay and art's decay at the same time[1]

[1]: Please read this footnote first[2]...never mind, I'll just eat my grits and shut up now...

[2]: that's why it was number one you see. [3]

[3]:1 is the lonelist number...[5]

[5]:2 can be as bad as one, its the lonelist number since the number one[6]

0. I think it would be funny in a fractal kind-of-way that the system that brings us tits runs on a system based on tits.

1. I want to allow all those low-level hardware types who never get as far as running programs to see tits.

2. I want to allow those who aren't using graphics consoles to experience tits. This about how many people winge about things looking like crap in lynx but that could perfectly well run a text-based logic simulator.

Dear Steven,

If that is indeed your real name.

I translated that 'proverb' into Japanese in several variations and made use of my dictionary of Japanese proverbs and sayings as well as extensive Google searches.

I was shocked, SHOCKED to find that this 'japanese proverb' appears to be nothing of the sort!

Hurrah! I got rid of another one. At this rate, I estimate the entire froup will be empty by mid-October.

And he's not the first to mention something about the attribution of that particular quote. I've gotten several responses stating it:

- is not a Japanese proverb
- is a mistranslated Japanese proverb (the original's predicate states, apparently, "FOAD")
- was actually said by Churchill
- was actually said by Mark Twain
- was actually said by the complainer's mother
- is completely made up
- ... by a conspiracy of terrorists out to steal our souls

and, finally,

- was never said at all, not even in my .sig, and thus does not exist.


Normally I'd consider changing the attribution line to "misattributed to", but, as there are so few treasures in life, I think I'll keep it as is.

Oh, heck, why not throw in Benjamin Franklin and Groucho Marx, too? It seems that almost any pithy saying you might encounter has been attributed to all four of these people at some point. Oh, and add Voltaire, as well.

Well the computer industry is obviously dead, the passing fad of computers has come and gone and I'm left high and dry with a head full of knowledge about how to assemble a Timex Sinclair and no where to apply such knowledge.

So I am abandoning my previous career path and embarking on a new one, one from whose borne no traveller returns...

I am becoming a pornographer. I know you are shocked, as most of you have considered me sweet, innocent, naive, and virtuous. But the truth of the matter is I have some rather seedy habits, one of which is hanging around loose women of questionable morals--and I am not referring to Waffle House waitresses. No good people, I am the webmaster (and I use the term in the vaguest manner since I have no idea what I am doing) of zebrascabaret.com and if I am to believe the e-mail I just received my career moving into a new and more exciting phase.

We make our first feature bondage movie, starring the ever-lovely girl-whose-name-I-can't-remember as helpless but gorgeous submissive and Suzi the club owner as Dominatrix. Since this will be pay feature when it reaches the website I thought I would extend the offer, if any of you would like to 'get in free' e-mail me and I'll send you a user name and password when I lock that directory down...then I can get some test subjects.

Anyway, gotta go shave my head and apply some moustache wax to my eyebrows so I look appropriately seedy if I happen to wander into frame.
