  • "Congealed thinking is the forerunner of failure... make sure you are always receptive to new ideas."
    George Crane

    bansaisequoia on 2009-10-07 21:47:46
    My thoughts are a pudding skin with an ant walking across it. Only my congealed thinking saves the ant from disaster.

    bvwRedux on 2012-04-25 10:28:27
    Bansai, be not pudding as it attracts ants, and also why rescue them? Would not the ant fin heaven in the pudding below the skin?

    If bansaisequoia is indeed nuts, then his or her thoughts must be pistachio pudding.

            • "If you ate pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry?" Anonymous

              geeko321 on 2014-01-17 09:47:12
              No, you would not still be hungry, because you'd be dead. The pasta and antipasto, when they collide, would annihilate, releasing an amount of energy equal to their mass times the speed of light squared, which would surely destroy your entire body in a frightful explosion.
