Let me start off by saying I do not blame jstraw for what happened. Uncle Wilbur was hospitalized today. It started out innocently enough. He was reading jstraws post and I just happened to mention that everytime you point the finger at someone else four more are pointing back at you. We started talking about this and the complexity of the conversation quickly spiraled out of control. Hey, let me just say that I think communication is a great invention, and lots of fun, but I think it has certain drawbacks. It is obvious to me that posters really need to take more responsibility for the imagery contained in their posts. When you start communicating down this kind of "slippery slope" you really need to stay in control, noone wants to be injured by an out of control communicator, my Uncle Wilbur sure didn't. Needless to say, we were talking about the mirror imagery (everytime the person in the mirror points his finger at his reflection four more are pointing back at him, plus his original finger and its reflection, with the additional four pointing at the reflection etc...) when the talk turned to the person who was pointing the finger at the person who was pointing the finger at the mirror, anyway, someone asked what would happen if the person pointing the finger at the person pointing the finger at the mirror could be seen in the mirror. My Uncle Wilbur turned a sickly shade of pale and his eyes got a real faraway look to them, he collapsed on the floor and a small amountof blood started trickling out of his ear. He was rushed to the hospital.
Now to end this post I find myself forced to use some advanced communication tactics my Uncle Wilbur taught me from his advanced Homeland Security training. Turns out the US government has spent millions researching effective communication techniques. The apex of their learning centered on defensive communication tactics. I will envelop my post in an impregnible barrier against which any and all attacks are futile by uttering...er typing the following words: "I know you are but what am I?"
