Random topics: back to school edition
Fellow theproedotcomnicks! the randoms are here, and as that school is starting again, they shall make all attempts to distract you from the impending horror, that is formal education, by reminding you of the atrocity of the randii. fear not, and be brave and know that the true value of education, is the realization of all the things you could have done instead. write whatever you want about all, some one or none of the following topics. to be clear, if you so choose, you may write anything at all about all the topics. you might also choose to write about fewer topics, or even one of them and no more. you will not be penlized if you choose to write about something totally unrelated. such are the choices that stand before you. you might argue that by choosing fewer topics, you are made to be limited in the scope of writing, but when considering the myriad of avenues you may explore, the difference in the number of topics that you choose or avoid, be it all, or even none is negelegable. the topics that are presented here (of which you may or might not choose any of) are: 1) shitake mashrooms in Abydos 2) the use of nettles in beverges throught the ages. 3) the contents of barring gaffner of Bagnialto. 4) wasteful practices of soul catchers. 5) Robinson Crusoe's discovery of America. 6) the annual steam train tycoon convention. 7)fake moustaches and jury duty. 8) the sum of human efforts. 9) windows 3.1 and ticker tape machines. 10) cracked turnpikes and square roundabouts . 11) wind turbines trying to learn to swim. 12) mack the knife, makes mac n'cheese. 13) the 27th floor and its ample easy to open windows without guardrails. 14) Hong Kong rock and roll. 15) couriers and their bruised wrists. 18) the brazen skipping of no. 16 AND 17! 19) forklifts and spooning. 20) the hidden message of traffic lights. +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+- normally, the randiis conclude with some quip from a film of particular importance. this time i would like to discuss something a bit more serious. Every year, many children are forced to live in homes that do not have a private swimming pool. they go to their parents and ask "daddy, mommy, why don't we have a swimming pool?" this needless tragedy occures on a daily basis throughout the world. but you can do somthing about it! don't wait a second and log on to www.worldswimmingpoolfoundation.com and donate as much as you can. to the World Swimming Pool Foundation. the volunteers of WSPF will make use of your generous donation to excavate, line, certify, fill chlorinate and maintain swimming pools in private residancies around the world. every bit counts!!!
