The pigeon

Tea is nought but this: first you heat the water, then you make the tea. Then you drink it properly.

It's a rhetorical trick that drives me nuts. I can't find it now, but I had a great pamphlet on the technique I picked up in London from a group of socialists about how to spread the message. It is all the Pete Seeger folk songs too, and he got it from the CPUSA. Haven't gotten to the root of why it is like nails on a chalkboard for me- I don't care where all the flowers have gone, what you'll do with a hammer, and you know who'll stop the rain? F'ing Zeus when he smites the lot of us! :D


Nap,

Would a hammer made of flowers be an effective WMP (Weapon of Mass Pacification)? :o

If the MIC will provide funding, the Simple Minded Institute for Liberation & Enlightenment (SMILE) will begin R&D immediately! :)

I'm thinking $5,000,000 should result in a function prototype within a year.

Flammer. Let's call it a flammer.
“Christ has no body now but yours. Yours are the eyes through which he looks with compassion on this world. Yours are the feet with which he walks among His people to do good. Yours are the hands through which he blesses His creation.”

Crap!

I completely forgot about needing a theme song and a front man/woman/group. All the cool people from the 1960's are either fat and ugly or their brains are so scrambled from drugs..... they're out.

Tell MIC it looks more like $10 mill & 20 months.....
