Either the master of tricking trickmasters has experienced relief from his ennui, or he has lost track of his Mod stats or his research into etymology and adages has become so rigorous as to cross the morally acceptable response time for Ask Me threads.

I hope his health is satisfactory.



Oh. It appears that my circumlocutions occupied a window in time where matters were becoming clearer. *chortle*


Why do people watch television when there is nothing to watch on television?

OK is a quintessentially American term that has spread from English to many other languages. Its origin was the subject of scholarly debate for many years until Allen Walker Read showed that OK is based on a joke of sorts. OK is first recorded in 1839 but was probably in circulation before that date. During the 1830s there was a humoristic fashion in Boston newspapers to reduce a phrase to initials and supply an explanation in parentheses. Sometimes the abbreviations were misspelled to add to the humor. OK was used in March 1839 as an abbreviation for all correct, the joke being that neither the O nor the K was correct. Originally spelled with periods, this term outlived most similar abbreviations owing to its use in President Martin Van Buren's 1840 campaign for reelection. Because he was born in Kinderhook, New York, Van Buren was nicknamed Old Kinderhook, and the abbreviation proved eminently suitable for political slogans. That same year, an editorial referring to the receipt of a pin with the slogan O.K. had this comment: "frightful letters ... significant of the birth-place of Martin Van Buren, old Kinderhook, as also the rallying word of the Democracy of the late election, 'all correct' .... Those who wear them should bear in mind that it will require their most strenuous exertions ... to make all things O.K."

Sounds are made by vibration , when something vibrates it makes waves that pass through the air. You ear then takes these vibrations, processes them and sends them to your brain. You Ears also help keep your balance.

People have put themselves in such a rhythm that doing something else would upset that rhythm and cease them to become depressed. This depression comes from something that they are used to having no matter how bad it may be. So instead of curling up with a good book, or expanding their mind, they have become what the world knows as "Couch Potatoes".

The Lives of a cat



A faint call of "BS" is heard from outside the room.

A report is brought in.

It reads "The 'nine' in 'a stitch in time saves nine' is axiomatic in the form of a self-referential cardinal number; that is, there are nine stitches to be saved when one is sewed in time."

Come from watching too many Cat shows on TV and skipping sewing class.

Another faint "BS" is heard elsewhere along with a snicker.

Actually, in 8th grade we learned that the Native Americans contributed OK, tuxedo, and some others as well.

But OK, here's my questions:

How much wood could a wood chuck chuck if a wood chuck could chuck wood?

What is the meaning of life?

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?
