In life the most simple is the most complex and the most complex is the most simple. Example: Advanced physics is pretty complex, right. Now, imagine holding something as simple as sand, in your hand. Now, try to figure out how it came to be (along with all the other unique and diverse elements) and how disrespected it is.

This should give you quite a different perspective of life, now.

What does that have to do with aliens and UFO's? And what the hell did that answer about life!?

A philosophy teacher shows a group of students a glass. He proceeds to fill it with large rocks. He then asks the class if it is full. They all answer yes. The professor then pours sand into the glass, it fills the space between the big rocks. He then calls on K_OS who is sitting at the back of the class. Come here K_OS he says. K_OS walks to the front of the class. You haven't been paying attention the professor says, So I want you to tell me why the glass is now full. K_OS says, but it isn't. The proffessor says OK prove it.
K_OS pulls out a can of beer and pours it into the glass. It fills the space between the sand.
The moral of this story is...There is always room for beer!!!
Be Cool
*edit...oops beer made me misspell

When you consider that most of what we think of as "solid" is made up of mostly empty space...and that the only reason it feels solid, is because we too are made up of mostly empty really puts things into perspective....

IOW, Life is only Life because of it's counterpart, Death.
That is, something is only considered Alive, becuase it isn't dead.
Therefore, Life and Death are linked.


Immortality, or 'No-Death', can only exist in a state of 'No-Life'.

IOW, The only way to never die, is to never live.

So maybe, now it's time, to accept your eventual death. For this is the only way to truly live.

I was really hoping this thread would help me figure out the mysteries of life or make me popular with the opposite sex or balance my checkbook or something. good thing there was the beer post, or this thread really wouldn't be worth the time it took for the page to load.

Maybe he can answer the question as to why hotdogs come in packages of 8 and hotdog buns come in packages of 10.

Buy Ballpark Franks pall, not only do they plump when you cook them, I'm pretty sure they come with more than eight per pagage...if I'm wrong it could be the broken bun conspiracy

You're looking for something deep, something that you can take down through the years, MorningtonCrescent? Here are some words of wisdom from Benjamin Franklin, a Founding Father of one of the greatest nations to be, a great diplomat and eloquent statesman:

"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

Words to live by. In moderation, of course.

Everyone knows, that the answer to life....just as it is to everything else in the 42.

On the first day God created the cow.

God said, "You must go to field with the farmer all day long and suffer
under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer. I will give
you a life span of sixty years."

The cow said, "That's a kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty
years. Let me have twenty years and I'll give back the other forty."

And God agreed.

On the second day, God created the dog.

God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who
comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years."

The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll
give back the other ten."

So God agreed (sigh).

On the third day God created the monkey.

God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I'll give
you a twenty year life span."

Monkey said, "How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so.
Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?"

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day God created man.

God said, "Eat, sleep, play, have sex, enjoy. Do nothing, just enjoy, enjoy.
I'll give you twenty years."

Man said, "What? Only twenty years? No way, man. Tell you what, I'll take my
twenty, and the forty cow gave back, and the ten dog gave back and the ten
monkey gave back. That makes eighty, okay?"

"Okay," said God. "You've got a deal."

So that is why for the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, have sex,
enjoy, and do nothing; for the next forty years we slave in the sun to
support our family; for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain
our grandchildren; and for the last ten years we sit in front of the house
and bark at everybody.

Life has now been explained.

The Answer for Life, The Universe and Everything, 42, had to appear in this thread somewhere.

Sorry ancient ogre,

I failed to see that you had already presented the answer.

Sometimes just a little reinforcement doesn't go astray.

Q. What do you say to Bush when he's got two black eyes?

A. Nothing. He's already been told twice.
