/anders,

welcome .. and have a nice time here.

Fred,
good idea you warned /anders of possible name confusion. I faintly remember you had barbed wire on you teeth concerning peranders and, looked with at it with distance now, not even unjustified.

bob4,
don't talk Fred into using other names or you will get a serious row with me! ...

All,
happy Halloween (can anyone tell me what is halloweeen and when does it take place?? ..)

Halloween is a clever marketing scheme invented in order to have another major spending period for the consumer market. Without any good reason we are to buy loads of strange costumes and plastic gear for our kids (?). It was most likely conceived in one of the Secret Pumpkin Growers' fellowship meetings when they were desperate to get rid of a very good crop that happened quite a few years ago. For some reason nowadays we accept the pumpkin as food (hint: look at my avatar for my view on food).

Or it could be something else, quote from http://wilstar.com/holidays/hallown.htm:

"The word itself, "Halloween," actually has its origins in the Catholic Church. It comes from a contracted corruption of All Hallows Eve. November 1, "All Hollows Day" (or "All Saints Day"), is a Catholic day of observance in honor of saints. But, in the 5th century BC, in Celtic Ireland, summer officially ended on October 31. The holiday was called Samhain (sow-en), the Celtic New year.

One story says that, on that day, the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year. It was believed to be their only hope for the afterlife. The Celts believed all laws of space and time were suspended during this time, allowing the spirit world to intermingle with the living.

Naturally, the still-living did not want to be possessed. So on the night of October 31, villagers would extinguish the fires in their homes, to make them cold and undesirable. They would then dress up in all manner of ghoulish costumes and noisily paraded around the neighborhood, being as destructive as possible in order to frighten away spirits looking for bodies to possess.

It looks like this topic has got a life of it's own!

Nice!

Oh, I can add to the name confusion... My (first)first(the extra name I hvae before Anders) name is Per!

Anyhow, call me naqref. I'm used to that. It's Anders but rot13 encoded.

Thanks for the warm welcome btw!

Default That's not punny!

bob4(apples)
a pun on bob for apples
http://www.hauntedbay.com/history/bobbing.shtml

"pre-anders "
a pun on Preanders
"post-anders"
a pun because he came here after Peranders was already here.
OBTW Peranders has been remarkably good natured about my persecution of him and is a gentleman that I rarely had any right to abuse. He has shown me kindness and forgiveness and is a much better person than most of us here when it comes right down to it.

'barbed wire on you teeth"
Ouch that would be very painful for me wouldn't it?
By the way we pronouce it "bob war" in Texas and nobody has any difficulty understanding what we mean.

"How many times have you read the Illuminatus?"
Never! My friend Chris Sommovigo,from my Audient Technologies high end digital interface days, told me about naming his company Illuminati after this book. There I go name dropping again.


"don't talk Fred into using other names"

JULIET
'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What's in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which he owes
Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.

ROMEO
I take thee at thy word:
Call me but love, and I'll be new baptized;
Henceforth I never will be Romeo.


"Harry"
Because it is an enemy to thee;
Had I it written, I would tear the word,
Fred

The main 3 books at least 4 times, the entire 7 book extended set a couple times. I have also had the wonderful pleasure of overnighting (two different times actually) at a friends along with Robert Anton Wilson. He is a wonderfully rich and humerous character.

This volume(s) are essential reading for anyone who would like to understand the law of 5s, or understand what a Fnord is -- a bible for surviving in modern times.

Default the Illuminatus

I will check it out.

My choice for bending books on conspiracy theory written in absoluty seriousness is "Behold a Pale Horse" by William Cooper.
http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~foley/beholda.htm
This guy makes Art Bell look as trustworthy and steady as you accountant.http://www.artbell.com/

WAY OUT THERE!
Post-HH

P.S. Don't forget to Check out Romeo and Julliet again if you are in need of good cry. I had a even meaner than I am friend laugh out loud during the movie and come as close to starting an actual riot as I have ever witnessed in real life. I was afraid for my life. I kid you not.

Default suggestibility and perception

a rose by any other name
will never ever smell the same
and cunning is the nose that knows
an onion that’s been called a rose



best part of Cooper's book was the cover art,
that and the concept of economic shock testing

Default Romeo & Juliet

All,
William Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet is heavily recommeded as a read.

For those who want to experience it as play, i recommend Franco Zefirelli's movie. I have never seen it better on stage. Simply outstanding.
