Thanks. *grabs knife then cuts several chocolate banana cream pies and hazelnut layer cheesecakes (a separate lunamoth cheesecake is sliced and placed within lunamoth sensor range)*

Dessert's served. Come and get it.

Do you think we could derail this thread if it crashed headlong into the Totally Useless thread?

Irresistable force meets immoveable object...something's gotta give.

Perhaps you should ask this guy:
If you keep trying to prove Murphy's Law, will something keep going wrong?

i used to love midget gems... I went into a shop recently and asked for some, and the three foot man behind the counter beat me soundly with a baseball bat. When I had emerged from my coma, I went back to the shop and asked him if he had any "vertically challenged gems". He served me that time.

I'm gonna use this thread to blow off a little steam. {Maybe derailing the "Derailment-proof Thread in the process. :p }
Mu rhythm from Wikipedia.

Mu rhythm (μ rhythm) is kind of EEG rhythm of maximal amplitude of somatosensory cortices at rest. It is also called arciform rhythm because of the shape of the waveforms.

Description

Usually encompassed in the alpha range (8-12Hz), it is strongly suppressed during the performance of contralateral motor acts. Modulation of the μ rhythm is believed to reflect the electrical output of the synchronization of large portions of pyramidal neurons of the motor cortex which control the hand and arm movement when inactive. In a 2005 article, it has been proposed that mu rhythm could reflect visuomotor integrative processes, and would "translate seeing and hearing into doing." Indeed, fluctuation on mu rhythm during the observation of a motor action is highly similar to the one seen during the direct performance of the action by the individual. This motor resonance mechanism witnessed by mu rhythm modulation could be due to a special category of cells called mirror neurons. However, the exact nature of the mu rhythm is still uncertain, as some have situated the source of this thalamocortical rhythm in the somatosensory region (Caetano, 2007). Moreover, Hari and collaborators (2007, 1994) stipulate that the mu rhythm, as quantified in the alpha band, could be an epiphenomenon of an higher (20Hz) frequency band activity.​

Gee wiz! Who writes this stuff? I thought my puns were bad! Check this out:

Like, "What is the sound of one hand clapping? Mu! :p

"The way never acts yet nothing is left undone." (Tao Te Ching 37) Wu wei? :p

From struggling with a koan, perhaps? :p

Who writes this stuff? :eek:

So far, the thread is not de-railed. It has no topic, therefore anything goes.

As long as someone changes the subject, nothing can settle in...

lol

Exactly.... The OP says that you cannot derail a thread.. But as I stated there is no topic.... So of course you cannot, if there is a topic it is the easiest thing in the world to achieve.... It's like having a marathon race with only one runner you.. and saying "try to lose" you obviously won't lose it's only you freaking running. Give the thread a topic and I will easily destroy it lol.... Give it no topic then no one will we will run around aimlessly posting random things.....

And on that note....

THE MAD HATTER SAYS IT'S TIME TO BOOGY!!
