      To all stats freaks: what is the probability that tafnut will be the second poster on ANY new thread posted to the board?

        Well, if you must know, I've been out since 5:00 and got back around 10:00, so Y'ALL have just been SLOW!

            Not slow, taffy. Just reluctant to comment on nothing.

              Isn't that what we do around here? Some of the best threads here have been about nothing! One of the most popular sitcoms of the 90s, Seinfeld, was about nothing. Friedrich Nietzsche and an entire philosophical movement is about Nothing. Nothing IS something! It's nothing!

                I still prefer Nike, but many of my favorite current athletes say "Impossible is nothing."

                  We start, then, with nothing, pure zero. But this is not the nothing of negation. For not means other than, and other is merely a synonym of the ordinal numeral second. As such it implies a first; while the present pure zero is prior to every first. The nothing of negation is the nothing of death, which comes second to, or after, everything. But this pure zero is the nothing of not having been born. There is no individual thing, no compulsion, outward nor inward, no law. It is the germinal nothing, in which the whole universe is involved or foreshadowed. As such, it is absolutely undefined and unlimited possibility -- boundless possibility. There is no compulsion and no law. It is boundless freedom.

                    Yeah, I always thought he was a Big Zero!

                            A big Nimby

                            Somewhere, a tree is falling in a forest.

                              I didn't do. I didn't hear it. I deny all responsibility for its falling!!!
