... in the irrevocableness of a vanished Post, there is a sacredness, an overpowering awe, a feeling of the vastness, the depth, the inexhaustible mystery of existence...
This is the reason why the Post has such magical power. The beauty of its motionless and silent pictures is like the enchanted purity of late autumn, when the leaves, though one breath would make them fall, still glow against the sky in golden glory. The Post does not change or strive; like Duncan, after life's fitful fever it sleeps well; what was eager and grasping, what was petty and transitory, has faded away, the things that were beautiful and eternal shine out of it like stars in the night. Its beauty, to a soul not worthy of it, is unendurable; but to a soul which has conquered Fate it is the key of religion.
- B. Russell.
Well, he didn't actually say that. Change Post to Past

I only wanted to ask what it will be about...
It doesn't exist... But it doesn't "doesn't exist already", it "doesn't exist yet"...

i'm hoping it will be the answer to world peace and the end to hunger and the solution to mark the start of an age of utopia.
chances are it will either be a non-us citizen attacking america or the "jason and andy show".
if capitalisation is equivalent to shouting, is the exagerated use of lower case equivalent to whispering?

I hope you didn't lose too much sleep, waiting for the right time to post your new thread.

LOL...
Jim, actually I thought it would be a nice trick to start this thread myself, but was almost sure it would be too much trouble to catch it. Imagine my amuzement when I checked MD this morning and what? The next free number is mine
I am thinking about abandoning my non-believer's beliefs.
 
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
