    Any good? But I think that on is sort of mutant.

    I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
    I know the voices dying with a dying fall
    Beneath the music from a farther room.

    So how should I presume?

    The food network is the worst channel to watch when on a diet, ever.
    So Eden sank to grief,
    So dawn goes down to day.
    Nothing gold can stay.

    At night my soul turns on end and becomes something else. I know not if I am the day or if I am the night, if the day is merely a dream of the night, or the night a dream of the day.

    And this stuff should be in the quote thread. Stuff that brain back into your head. And very impressive list, for the ones I've heard of in all my


    Does anybody think that water tastes better in some places because of a large number of things. Like, living close to a main road where it is all polluted makes it tastes bad. A newer house has better and fresher pipes so it tastes good. The place where we went to camp at tasted nice because the area isn't very populated. On the other side of the train tracks to us, at my friends' house, it is good, of course it is newer.

    Yea, I think too much.

    I agree completely, including the final remark where you admit to be thinking too much

    Ahh... I'm pretty sure the water thing is true.
    And yes, I do think way too much, however I could just as well.

    In which case:
    Do things like drinking, smoking, etc. necessarily ruin your liver in small amounts? I suppose it is an organ, and cannot be built on as a muscle can develop, but it could grow a little resilience. Like how vaccines are generally small doses of whatever they are preventing, so much so that the body can overcome it and become immune to it. Then you think, could there be a plus side to drinking and smoking a little in that case? Smoking especially, seeing as it is generally pretty bad for you? I mean, when your body is used to functioning with a drug it becomes less powerful. So would that make the effects of drinking and smoking lessen? And because they may also make you immune to other things, like how my dad's uncle was told to take up smoking as a child so he wouldn't get chicken pox. I'm either right or horribly wrong...

    Post My random thought...

    In the wise (and true) words of the Bard of Avon,
