Olaf Garcia: chick thing? Oh, Oxygen! Well, guys like it too

Merlyn: Here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/arts/fridayreview/story/0,12102,1364508,00.html
Dr Wang Chung Yamamoto is glad he doesn't have a teevee
Merlyn: "No one else was doing pothead comedy at the time," recalls Cheech. "The Firesign theatre was doing something more cerebral and druggy, but no one was doing anything about being high."
Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: Think about playing with yourself, go to jail. It's the law.
Elayne: Oh, I saw that Photoshop awhile back, must have been about 2-3 years...
klokwkdog-10EEE: oh, they'll just arrest people whenever they want, Chung, and make up some reason -- they're appointing judges to see to that
Olaf Garcia: I'm getting sick of not having tv. I've only had webtv for about 3 years
Merlyn: Cheech and Chung?
Elayne: Do you believe, Dex and I were actually waxing almost... fondly about Nixon at lunch today. When the people currently in power make NIXON look good by comparison you know you're in trouble.
klokwkdog-10EEE: that makes no sense, Olaf
Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: Tommy Chong dropped the dime on FST?
klokwkdog-10EEE: Amen, Elayne!

||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Olaf Garcia: no sense klok. Let me explain. I don't get any tv stations from where I am but I do have a webtv hookup
Elayne: So I told Dex to stop waxing nostalgic for Nixon, I didn't need to be reminded how old I was on my birthday. :)

klokwkdog-10EEE: can you, like, get an antenna?
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: There won't be a dry eye in the house when they tearfully recant Galileo.
klokwkdog-10EEE: happy birthday, E
Elayne: Will he have aged well? Oh, sorry, I misread, I thought you wanted to DEcant Galileo.
Elayne: Thanks Klok!

klokwkdog-10EEE: you could get one of those 3-meter satellite dishes like ah clem and bambi have and get the free stuff that way
Bubba's Brain: I think Bush just bought a Pottery Barn.
Olaf Garcia: I could get could get sattelite if I wanted a yearlong committment. I might actually do it though

doctec has the most recent work. 'tour de france' - catchy understated electronic minimalist grooves
Dave: I'm really getting in to electronic music, instrumental stuff though
doctec: different grooves for different moods
Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: Tomorrow I can get one for about 18 dollars. Soon it'll probably cost 40 bucks.
Dr. Andrew Bone Chung MD: They'll jack up the price, you'll see.

Merlyn: thanks for reminding me, bboy, I'll send out a reminder to the email list; I've heard season ticket holders can already buy them, so one fan was worried there would be none available
Bunnyboy: doc: Nope. The Bagley Wright (1999 show) is in Seattle Center. The Moore Theatre is in the heart of Downtown Seattle.
Bubba's Brain: Bubba Boy, or Bunny's Brain
doctec: bubba: asking bunny, hooked up with the bunster back in '99 for the seattle show

Rotonoto: 'lo klok
Merlyn: anyone have BunnyBoy's email?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: hey
klokwkdog-10EEE+: one sec M
Merlyn: he was just here, so maybe an email might catch him
Rotonoto: don't know off hand
Merlyn: KWD had it, roto
Rotonoto: "10EEE" = bozofeet?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Roto: http://www.talkingpointsmemo.com/archives/week_2004_11_28.php#004149
klokwkdog-10EEE+: apparently Cheney has now got feet to match his head...
Rotonoto: Roto just took door off hinges, sawed and planed and sanded bottom- to fit new threshold weather gasket (whew!)
klokwkdog-10EEE+ has door with that problem, but it slopes, darn it all, making a custom shim necessary, a bit of carpentry beyond me
Merlyn: make it out of funny foam
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Cheney has been a longtime Johnston & Murphy customer, but recently found it necessary to make a personal visit to the store because his shoe size changed to a size 10EEE. Cheney selected the Lasalle wingtip loafer in brushed mahogany
klokwkdog-10EEE+: But why is the Vice President's shoe size getting bigger? Of course, it doesn't explicitly say they've gotten bigger only that his feet have changed sizes. And 10EEE is a rather large size.
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Here's why I say this. Swollen feet is a symptom of congestive heart failure
Rotonoto: "fascinating", said Spock...
Rotonoto: let me do the Vulcanized Mind Melt with him...
klokwkdog-10EEE+: I like that blog; it informs me no end (sometimes too much ;-)
Rotonoto: he sez his conscience is now bothering him but the money was just too good to pass up
Merlyn: maybe he's been taking penis enlargement pills. You know, big feet, and all...
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Elayne said Dex Fong was at some jazz thing, would appear "later"
Rotonoto: that Dex must have good taste in music
klokwkdog-10EEE+: ken is off in 18-wheelerland and Doc T I think you got to chat with, Roto
klokwkdog-10EEE+: well, he lives in a good place for music, if you can afford it
Rotonoto: nope missed Doc 2nite as I just showed up after home unimprovement session
klokwkdog-10EEE+ always kicks himself for not running into Manhattan, paying the cheap cover, and watching Karen Akers a few nights in the 80s
klokwkdog-10EEE+: of course, when I lived in Germantown, never went to see her at Wolf Trap, either, but that was a much pricier gig
Rotonoto: Roto wishes he had gotten up nerve to venture into Cellar Door in DC years ago to hear the young Ahmad Jamal live
Merlyn: what was unnerving about it?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: oh yeah, the things I missed there are legion
Rotonoto: or maybe he was not so young by then (being from Chicagoland?)
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Dexter Fong disembarks at 11:45 PM.

Dexter Fong: Whazz up Kemosabi
klokwkdog-10EEE+: we ain't...
Rotonoto: Roto is a country boy, live right outside DC but *waaaay* outside the beltway
klokwkdog-10EEE+: well, you're halfway to Gettysburg...
Dexter Fong: A country boy with the heart of the city
Rotonoto: sorta
Dexter Fong: A rural dude with an urban 'tude
Rotonoto: wish I was a fly on the wall years ago when Ahmad Jamal did his gig at the Pershing
klokwkdog-10EEE+: DC isn't really a city, just a collection of neighborhoods
Rotonoto: easy for you to say
Dexter Fong: A collection of *bad* neighborhoods
Merlyn: flies have lousy acoustics
Merlyn: get it, "lousy"?
Rotonoto: heh!
klokwkdog-10EEE+: wish I'd ventured into NJ when Jarrett was playing live from time to time
Rotonoto: yesh, sophisticated bumpkin
Dexter Fong: Sophistipated Rhythym
klokwkdog-10EEE+: i keep meaning to go to Chan's in Woonsocket and catch some gigs there, they have a good lineup, but never get around to it
Rotonoto: Round Tuits going begging this Christmas
Rotonoto: Chains in Winsock? ISP lockdown?
Rotonoto: Roto departs briefly for a cool, refreshing beaverage...
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Roto: http://www.chanseggrollsandjazz.com/
Dexter Fong: Make it two
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Oh, dunno, Dex -- DuPont Circle area is kind of nice (not cheap, tho')
Dexter Fong: How you doing Klok?
Dexter Fong: None of the *nice* neighborhoods in DC are cheap
klokwkdog-10EEE+: OK, I guess
klokwkdog-10EEE+: kind of haggard -- stopped adding xtra salt and maybe it's not quite time, but I'm at the edge of the no-sweat season ;-)

Dexter Fong: +Bob Dorough and Henry Grimes
klokwkdog-10EEE+: sounds good -- was it?
Dexter Fong: +Roy Haynes childrens group
Dexter Fong: I say children cause he's 80 and the 3 kids together are barely 60
klokwkdog-10EEE+: don't know any of them, unfortunately
Dexter Fong: Well, Roy Haynes (drummer) has played with everyone from Bird and Diz and Miles and Getz to Jarrett and..hell, you name 'em
Dexter Fong: Anyway, nice concert in a very nice venue...Tribecca Performing Arts Center
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
Dexter Fong: Fuck off Catherwood
Rotonoto: Tribecca- they had three Rebeccas?
Dexter Fong: Chure man, you never heard of the unholy Trinity
Dexter Fong: Thelma Luoise and her lawyer
Rotonoto: cool man- hey you got any hot programs you wanna unload?
Dexter Fong: Um..not following you Roto
Rotonoto: awkward attempt at humor regarding musical printed programs
Dexter Fong: Well I do have an autographed program by Horowitz from 1940
klokwkdog-10EEE+: i hate those -- you just get settled in at the concert and someone opens theirs and it starts that tinny music
Rotonoto: now that's a keeper for sure
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Dex is pulling seniority on us...
Dexter Fong: Rather sell it..got actually a whole bunch of autographed programs...went to Antiques Roadshow with em...no interest at all
Dexter Fong: I didn't get the autographs..my father did
Merlyn: come back in 50 years
klokwkdog-10EEE+ wonders how many rubes show up at those with stacks of 1930s National Geographics...
Rotonoto: probably more like sharply limited interest- but somewhere is someone who would want them
Dexter Fong: I plan to Merl =)
Dexter Fong: Roto: You'd think so
klokwkdog-10EEE+: yeah, check eBay, Dex -- just lurk and see what's being traded and for how much
Rotonoto: hey mann- don't underestimate theit value- they have historical interest- lots of pix of nalked women in them
Rotonoto: remember how much Radar O'Reilly character lusted after the Geographics
Dexter Fong: I prefered the Spicy Dectective Tales
klokwkdog-10EEE+: never watched that many M*A*S*H eps
Merlyn: National Geographics keep the continents from rising too much
klokwkdog-10EEE+: true, Merlyn
Dexter Fong: Otherwise they's be sub-continents
klokwkdog-10EEE+: although there must be one heck of a lode of them in Death Valley
Merlyn: [rimshot]
Dexter Fong wav
klokwkdog-10EEE+ actually spent many days pouring over 1940s QSTs
Dexter Fong: Quarterly Spicy Tales
Dexter Fong: ?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: a ham radio journal, Dex
klokwkdog-10EEE+: no nekkid wimmen...
Dexter Fong: Ah...Spiced Ham
Rotonoto: Roto has large collection of QST's, but not many pre-1957 or so
klokwkdog-10EEE+: yeah, it's all about spice tonight, I guess. The spirit of Frank Herbert must be near.
Dexter Fong: Hang on to your thumpers
klokwkdog-10EEE+: well, you may not know this, but during WWII, all hams had to be off the air for the duration
klokwkdog-10EEE+: lots of articles about ultrasonic and light beam communication
Dexter Fong: You mean they couldn't make prosciutto?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: in the early 1950s, the Red Scare meant real peril for VHF and UHF distance expeditions set up on high points outside major cities
klokwkdog-10EEE+: the police thought they were spies, guiding in Russian bombers
klokwkdog-10EEE+: but mostly, there were articles about tubes, which get dull and boring
Dexter Fong: Well you know, a tube is just a glass covered hole on its side
klokwkdog-10EEE+: although it was interesting to watch the progresssion from rectifier tubes to selenium stacks to silicon diodes and the appearance of transistors and where
klokwkdog-10EEE+: oh, please, Dex - it's an N-Channel HV MOSFET with a built-in pilot light...
Dexter Fong: Tubes rule
Dexter Fong: Does it stay on when the power goes off?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: well, they do have qualities all their own
Rotonoto: Roto still uses *biiiig* tubes in his transmitter
Merlyn: my TV still have one big tube
Rotonoto: you close the door- and the light stays on!

Rotonoto: hi cat, didn't see you come in (on phone with Bozoette)
cease: hi roto
cease: how's dc?
Dexter Fong: Klok: Could you get Tierra Del Fuego?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: problem with them today is that this tube is about as rare as a Picasso and priced nearly the same; also the radio used a gigantic 4 lb. battery that no longer exists
klokwkdog-10EEE+: you could get Duluth!
Dexter Fong: Holy Toledo!!!
cease: you could get tierra del fuego
Rotonoto: hmmm- DC is getting a baseball team again (I don;t care for sports personally)
cease: and other fine gore vidal novels
Merlyn: I got a 1953 chevy
Dexter Fong: Roto: YOu like impersonal sports?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: the Trans-Oceanic cost a fortune then, and it's still worth a fortune now, esp. the early 1940s ones
cease: yes, my former xpos. i was long a fan of theirs in montreal
cease: is checy chase 53? i thought he was older than me
klokwkdog-10EEE+: lots more '53 Chevys around than T-Os, Merlyn!
Rotonoto: Dex- yes, 'zactly
klokwkdog-10EEE+: DC does not impress me as a sports city

Dexter Fong: What's going on at Lake Bonny?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Froman artist to a has been in weeks...
klokwkdog-10EEE+: it blew a cork 14K years ago, Dex
klokwkdog-10EEE+: was question about salt flats, and they described the lake, but not the cork-blowing part
Dexter Fong: Yes Friends, that's todays hurry up and get forgotten world of unteretainment
cease: i was just finding out if a conspiracy theory i sent to myself had arrvied when i found klok's alert to this chat continuation. if its any good, i'll post it somewhere
Dexter Fong: Was there a Chatus Interruptus?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: turns out it was a minor episode compared to the repetitive ice dam cycle of Lake Missoula, which regularly generated floods 30 times bigger
cease: well put, dex
klokwkdog-10EEE+: everyone got wore out, Dex; I was away 50 min. and got bak and all goners
Dexter Fong: Wow, closed up about 10:30 did it?
cease: i got wet. of course, i live in vancouver
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Dex - the Snake River canyon is apparently awesome -- you stand there at the bottom and look up 150 ft.
Dexter Fong: Cat: So your shower *was* a shower?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: more like 11PM, Dex
cease: i can see for feet and feet
Dexter Fong: Klok: And see what?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: vancouver is in Monsoon now, isn't it? this kind of wet fog that is either up at 100 ft. or descends, London-style and soaks the heat right outtta you?
cease: that too. sunny sometimes. yesterday was sunny, but unfortunately i had to be downtown Today
klokwkdog-10EEE+: rivers pouring over the edge into the Snake. When the plug blew, 300 cubic miles of water came out at once
klokwkdog-10EEE+: plowed that trench, scattered 30 ft. boulders like sand, dragged them for miles until they rounded off
cease: follow the snake, the snake is a river
Dexter Fong: That kinda thing happened a lot in the old days, didn't it...Mediterranean, that area in norther dakotas, montana and Oregon etc...
klokwkdog-10EEE+: yeah, must've been awesome for the animals who survived...
Dexter Fong: Carrying water conservation to its limits
klokwkdog-10EEE+: there was one in the Near East that supposedly is the model for all the local religions' flood myth
Dexter Fong: Yes..lotta dispute about actual source IIRC
klokwkdog-10EEE+: it was a real uphill battle to get people to believe it, too
Dexter Fong: De Nile
klokwkdog-10EEE+: a geologist would point to dozens of 8 ft. deep scratches in solid rock with a 30ft. rounded melon boulder just at the end and they'd say, "He's crazy"
cease: can you guys listen to cbc am now?
Dexter Fong: Turn it up please
cease: just turned on ideas. great show
klokwkdog-10EEE+: some neat pix of what it looks like now here: http://imnh.isu.edu/digitalatlas/hydr/main/lbffr.htm
cease: i was gonna put on eykiw and then suddenly it's rupert sheldrake on cbc right now
klokwkdog-10EEE+: right at this moment?
cease: as we type, klok
cease: cbc vancouver of course. it was on in your time zone long ago
klokwkdog-10EEE+: digging - which one: http://www.cbc.ca/listen/index.html
cease: a brilliant thinker. and his idea about experiments everyone can do is so necessary
cease: click vancouver
klokwkdog-10EEE+: oh heck, I hate that word. Go give that bozo a couple of American dimes...
klokwkdog-10EEE+: he's used it 8 times since I started listening
klokwkdog-10EEE+: yeah, click "vancouver"
cease: sounds like nino
klokwkdog-10EEE+: right
klokwkdog-10EEE+: sounds like the Rhines at Duke and their Zener cards
Dexter Fong: I see stars
klokwkdog-10EEE+: a standard click?
Dexter Fong: There's so many of 'em
cease: what do the blind see?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: the problem with such experiements is whether it's clairvoyance or precognition, etc.
Dexter Fong: Little men in melty hats
cease: or really far fetched chance?
cease: yes the firesign love that line, dex.
cease: they were gonna call one of their albums that
Dexter Fong: And I never got any royalties
cease: royaltie is vastly overrated, dex
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Cat -- tell the queen to look up Dex next time she's in town
cease: look at camilla. or no, don't
Dexter Fong: I see tampons...There's so many of them
klokwkdog-10EEE+: LOL
klokwkdog-10EEE+: audio stopped!
klokwkdog-10EEE+: started again
Dexter Fong: It came back for me
cease: god must have loved tampons
Dexter Fong: The Peter Sellers bio-pic is on tomorrow and did *not* get good reviews here
klokwkdog-10EEE+: if these guys have figured this stuff out, why aren't they rich?
cease: lincoln: poor people jbs haldane: beetles
klokwkdog-10EEE+: saw review in NYT; haven't read yet
Dexter Fong: Klok: It only works with pennies
Merlyn: who wonna seconda worlda war
klokwkdog-10EEE+: fine structure of the world?
cease: U So Smaat
Dexter Fong: Somebody get that Jap prisoner back in his cell
Dexter Fong: And put the dog leash on him
Rotonoto: stop torturing me!
cease: i no jap, i burmese
klokwkdog-10EEE+: you can just shoot him now, Dex.
Dexter Fong: Klok: can't shoot him till he's wounded
cease: U Thant, famous diplomat. meet my fellow mats, U Think and U Thump
Dexter Fong: u2?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: and the famous No-U-Turn...
Rotonoto: me2
Dexter Fong: U Cant Always Get What U Want
Dexter Fong: Nifty
Merlyn: I Would Die 4 U (Thant)
Dexter Fong: U Tilization is the key
klokwkdog-10EEE+: yeah, why isnt' there a light bulb in our eye that goes on to tell us we're being stared at?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: oh, so you can go to the allergist and get de-sensitized
Dexter Fong: Turn on your eye-ball light
klokwkdog-10EEE+: our minds are not confined to the insides of our heads???
cease: u fuck, my dyslexic lover
klokwkdog-10EEE+: get your mind OUT of my house!
Dexter Fong: The House of U
Dexter Fong: Any of you heard about a Broadway show based on Python's Life Of Brian?
cease: here, have some amontillado
cease: why?
Dexter Fong: I jast ran over that armadillo
klokwkdog-10EEE+: this show is so silly when I've just had one beer; it must be hilarious stoned...
Dexter Fong: Cat: Cause there is one
cease: i think broadway does python= a degradation of them both
Merlyn: I think it'll be pretty good, cat; I'd like to see it
cease: spamalot? come on idle, give it a break
Dexter Fong: Well...It has the blessing of the remaining Pythons plus Mike Nichols prod and dir with David Hyde Pierce, Tim Curry, and Hank Azaria
cease: osman told me, or more probably judith, that they wnated to have an off broadway play. i think it's too late
Dexter Fong: FST wanted off bway play?
cease: but it's a bad idea. just like the ucla does firesign show was. remeber how discombobulated austin was when he saw that and chatted with us?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: is everyone still listening to this stuff??
Dexter Fong: I am Klok
Dexter Fong: more or less
cease: you mean sheldrake?
cease: you never listen to ideas, klok?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: not on CBC ;-)
cease: i proably have a thousand of them on tape. the library of alexandria of our era
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Merlyn: Firesign had no control over the UCLA show; not the same as spamalot
klokwkdog-10EEE+: on BBC occasionally...
Dexter Fong: Klok *has* ideas Cat, he doesn't need to hear them =)
Merlyn: Ossman is doing some live prods of "dwarf" with his son sometime soon
Dexter Fong: He's full up
klokwkdog-10EEE+ has a headful of ideas that're driving him insane...
Dexter Fong: U Bet!
cease: they can do what they like with their work. i'm sure they'll be plaiying oldies at their seattle show
cease: they always make it new
klokwkdog-10EEE+: and kwd ain't gonna work on Maggie's Farm no more...
Dexter Fong: Come to South America..work on my Lime Plantation
klokwkdog-10EEE+: intellectual ferment? "Now we can make beer!"
cease: my point is, what they did with radio/albums long ago when there was much less competition was revolutionary. they'll never do that in another medium again, i suspect but so what
klokwkdog-10EEE+: yeah, they have not so much grown together as grown individually
Dexter Fong: Cat: I pretty much agree although seeing them in person, they're always doing some visual schtick that adds much enjoyment
Dexter Fong: But yes..radio and recording is *really* they're media
Dexter Fong: Donovans Brain
klokwkdog-10EEE+: i wonder if you can control cold fusion with morpho-genetic fields?
cease: yes dex. theyt're thespians
cease: that works for them, and us
Dexter Fong: Klok: I dunno...let's try!!
Rotonoto: acting! projection!
cease: merl has done more than anyone here to support and document their recent work
cease: hi roto
Dexter Fong: N.U.R.G.I. Flims presents.....
cease: i'm slowly learnig how to use highly complex hardware and software
erhgiherhgihterthgiB: ....not fade away....
cease: yeah, i'm about that level, dex
Rotonoto: Roto still on phone with Bozoette
cease: doesnt this sound like hinduism?
Dexter Fong: BW erhgi
cease: hi bozoette
Dexter Fong: And those beatles are eating my limes
klokwkdog-10EEE+ is slowly forgetting how to use highly complex hardware and software -- must be trapped in Counter--Clock World
klokwkdog-10EEE+: don't let us distract you Roto! ;-)
Rotonoto: Bozoette is going to join us
erhgiherhgihterthgiB: ....what r all these beetles doing here....??
Dexter Fong: Quick clean the joint up
klokwkdog-10EEE+: what! save the limes!
Merlyn: is being counter-clock wise?
cease: greetings bozoette
klokwkdog-10EEE+: BTW - anyone checked prices on red peppers lately? $5/lb!!
Rotonoto: she will log on in a moment...
erhgiherhgihterthgiB: ....I feel my pain....
klokwkdog-10EEE+: here, hold this log on your forehead
Dexter Fong: KLok: Maybe you oughta think about maggie's Farm again
Rotonoto: yeah, reds are up to 3-4 dollars/pound
klokwkdog-10EEE+: feels better, doesn't it?
klokwkdog-10EEE+ looked at growing 'em -- need hot, hot plus 70-90 days and plenty of strange nutrients
Dexter Fong: Bell Peppers? You could grow em up there, not that hard
||||||||| Catherwood escorts Bozoette in through the front door at 1:10 AM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
klokwkdog-10EEE+: not practical, but the purple ones were fascinating! http://www.findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1279/is_2003_Feb-March/ai_97174858
Dexter Fong: Hi B-ette
Bozoette: Hi Dex
klokwkdog-10EEE+: tending 'em for 90 days is hard and I want to grow some NOW! (as in weeks and at these temps, maybe with plastic sheet greenhouse on the porch)
erhgiherhgihterthgiB: Bozoette valkommen....!!
klokwkdog-10EEE+: hi b-zette.
cease: enchantee, bozoette
Dexter Fong: Klok: Take a trip to Vancouver, get a dope growing kit but plant peppers
klokwkdog-10EEE+: "a tangent to my regular scientific career"???! sounds like it's the END of his scientific career....
cease: we are experts
Dexter Fong: 'course growing your own peppers might leave you open to prosecution under the fair trade act
klokwkdog-10EEE+: well, that sounds more expensive than Amsterdam and much more expensive than $5/lb.
cease: klok, this extended mind thing is perhaps a resonance from one of those other dimesnsions that string theory dictates
Dexter Fong: He's spaced
cease: we are so imprisoned in our senses
Dexter Fong: Try doing without cat
klokwkdog-10EEE+: (for Roto and B - we're listening online to CBC Vancouver interviewing the author of The Sense of Being Stared At...
erhgiherhgihterthgiB: ....what thiz country needs is a "fair trading with the enemy act"....
Dexter Fong: I wondered why his eyes were shing
Rotonoto: I'm very attached to my senses- it's such a convincing illusion
cease: i'll be gone eventually but this chat will outlive me
Dexter Fong: shining
klokwkdog-10EEE+: i think it's a resonance from 19th century spiritualism myself, Cat ;-)
klokwkdog-10EEE+: can't we use the WWII one that Bush's grandpa used, Big?
Dexter Fong: I hear an unsolved melody
cease: i see your point, klok, but the technology is better now
erhgiherhgihterthgiB: klokwkdog-10EEE+: it needs an upgrade!!
klokwkdog-10EEE+: Cat - fine, but this is so monumental that it has incredible application. if a tenth of it is true, the author could be filthy rich 10 times over
cease: i think his morphic resonance theory is half or perhaps 1% baked but does point to sometihing important
Merlyn: or 10 times filthier
klokwkdog-10EEE+: sure, and there is a mechanism in cold fusion that no one understands, but its
||||||||| Dexter Hardware waltzes in at 1:17 AM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
klokwkdog-10EEE+: not the one that's making gobs of heat, but just past the limit of measurement
Dexter Hardware: managed to disappear myself, morphogenetically speaking, of coursd
klokwkdog-10EEE+: now, this week, I was reading about a researcher who's burying simple metal plates in concrete and using them to tell whether it's cured
erhgiherhgihterthgiB: ....I didn't know FDR was Bush's grandpa....
Dexter Hardware: The plate or the concrete Klok?
klokwkdog-10EEE+: it's really swift - the plates can be used years later to locate earthquake damage
||||||||| Catherwood escorts otonotoR in through the front door at 1:18 AM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
klokwkdog-10EEE+: ha, the cement, Dex
Merlyn: The plates hold singing frogs?

Rotonoto: Roto figures if she feigns interest for long enough, she may actually develop interest ;-)
Dexter Hardware: Klok: Yeah but it wasn't terrible, dunno about up your way

Dexter Hardware: You tried to clip him Klok?
