WINNER OF THE AWARD FOR MOST RANDOM THREAD
AT THEDADDY.ORG FORUM MEET 2005


WINNER OF THE AWARD FOR LONGEST THREAD
AT THEDADDY.ORG FORUM MEET 2006



So apparently most people in the forum prefer long threads.

So I say, let's see if we can create the longest thread in the world. I'm thinking 7 pages (to beat that pesky 419 baiters thread) I'm thinking bells, whistles and interesting discussions about the weather! I'm thinking randomness without end and a thread that can be well and truely derailed simply for the sake of discussing who'd win in a fight between Obi Wan Kenobi and Gandalf.

What topic do you think would create the longest thread?

Has to be Last of the Summer Wine. That surely came before 99% of earthly things.

Can a spin off happen before the series it's spinning off from? Wouldn't that kind of defeat the point?

Or is there some weird paradox going on here, involving time travel and minature giraffes attached to flywheels?

Of course, if Last of the Summer Wine came before 99% of things, and if we also accept that it can't have come before itself, then we have to conclude that Last of the Summer Wine itself constitutes the remaining 1%. Therefore, Last of the Summer Wine is 1% of things. To put it another way - one in every 100 things is Last of the Summer Wine.

No wonder the world's so strange.

Excuse me for mentioning it, but can I interest you in a panoramic print of York - www.panoramicyork.co.uk ? No? Oh well - just thought I'd ask.

I've been thinking about that chicken or egg thing lately. In my humble opinion the egg came before the chicken since there is an evolutionary step betwixt chicken and egg but not betwixt egg and chicken. Hence at some point in the distant past a creature that wasn't quite a chicken must have laid an egg that became a chicken.
Damn I bet it got picked on at school.

You're right!

That's the answer!

The mystery is solved - I can't believe it!

but surely it was the creature that came before the chicken and the egg that came first, and not, in fact, the chicken or the egg that came first before the creature that came before the chicken and the egg...erm...etc...?

Well yeah but the egg was first out of the 2 of them. Otherwise the question would be 'which came first, the chicken, the egg or the creature?'

okay then, what if the question was:

which came first - the chicken-creature or the mutant egg from beyond the llewelyn-bowen nebula?

0.99999r does not equal 1 as is does not say 1 it says 0.9999r

but if you round up it up then its 1


in finacial terms it would be ?1 so it is both and not one or the other

I'd say yes as 0.99999, having infinite 9s is infinitely close to 1 and must therefore be 1.

Superman definately - the lazer vision and flying definately beats webs, green skin and Mr T.

I'm not so sure, it's possible that the Hulk might win... I'm sure they actually did a fight between Superman and the Hulk, and I think Superman won, but as I recall the winner was decided by vote, so it was pretty obvious who people were going to pick...

That being said I wouldn't underestimate the A-Team, I'm sure given just the right equipment they could devise some sort of Gold-Krypton-Gamma death ray that would strip Superman of his powers and cause the Hulk to revert to Bruce Banner, thus leaving a straight fight between The A-Team and Spiderman (cause there's no way Clark Kent could take Mr T, and we all know it).

The real question is just how Mr T would make sure his bling stayed that shiny no matter what he did!

The chicken or egg thing is an example of the failing of logic to describe real life.
An object isn't either a chicken or not a chicken it embodies the concept of chicken to some degree.
That's fuzzy logic that is.

It's the same as the:
"You have a grain of sand is it a heap?, you now have 2, 3, x, grains of sand is it a heap?" question or:
"As there has never been a perfect circle has there ever been a circle?"

That should be good for a few hundred more.

There's been a gazillion perfect circles, in geometry and other abstract calculations. It's only when you try to actually draw one you run into difficulties, but that's a problem for the technicians

It's hardly fair to say there has been a perfect circle just becasue you have thought of one.

If you can let that go you can also say that green hippos with wings that breathe fire exist just beacuse I have just thought of one.

And on a similar note - a question my father was asked in a Philosophy degree paper:

'Did Sherlock Holmes live at 221b Baker Street?'

I misread that as "Did Sherlock Holmes live at 22lb?"

I was thinking 22lb?... he must have been heavier than that.

If a barber walks 10 miles south, 10 miles west, then 10 miles north, then kills his own grandfather, does he a) make a sound when he eats penguins and b) cut his own hair?

Show your workings in the margin.

The answer to b) is no as he will have probably murdered his grandfather with his scissors as this would be the easiest weapon to hand. He will then have to throw them away to remove the evidence.
For a) If you mean penguin biscuits the answer is yes as they are kinda crunchy if it is the bird variety it depends if it is alive or not.

surely birds are crunchy whether they're alive or dead?

or do penguin's bones dissolve at the point of death?

You're thinking of Tarzan.
Penguins bones revert to their natural igneous state upon death but, I was assuming he wouldn't eat the bones.

New question:
Who would win in a fight between a raspberry and the strong anthropomorphic principle?
