    What is this voyage that I take in my body
    Futile belief that I can
    By listening to sages
    By seeking lost wisdom
    By imbibing potions, burning incense
    By prayer
    Prolong whatever brief struggle I shall experience

    There's no doubt that
    By observing
    By choosing
    By luck
    By inherited genetic tangle
    I can have some conscious effect but

    We all
    Are born
    Are finite
    Are limited
    Are incapable of comprehending the larger universe
    And when the time comes, we know how to die

    johnbryanpeters, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this forum is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    easily never left pittsburgh...


    my sn has nothing to do with manhattan:

    Man-HAttnPrjkt'-comes from a lithuanian term meaning: Secret American effort to build an Atomic bomb in collaboration with Great Britain. Organized by J. Robert Oppenheimer the effort was directed by General Leslie Groves. Pushed by other scientists Albert Einstein first wrote to President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1939 warning that Nazi German could be developing an A-bomb. Roosevelt subsequently authorized the Manhattan Project. Authorities named it after the Manhattan Engineer District of the US Army Corp of Engineers where much early research was carried out.

    it's funny when people speak of spirituality, people have a tendency to get all unsettled, haha.

    I think that manhattanprjkt83 is really seeking the 1,000 word thread.

    Actually, it's been a long time since the whole raft of n-word threads. :think:

    i've thought for years of starting an "artwork from a portable restroom unit picture thread". But i just don't see it taking off. Maybe i'm wrong....
