hov anything , everthing, and nothing. "the" is a connector, glue that hold other words together. y'know?
sometimes the trails off, as in "what the.?."
sometimes the is all you can say, like "the, er, uh, the..."
and sometimes the is apprpriate, as in "the end."

Baree ď...meaning of life, the universe, and everything is 42. You have just forgotten the question." Douglas Adams (March 11, 1952 - May 11, 2001)

While this may seem strange it does point out that we are asking the wrong questions towards the nebulous concept of existence. Personally I do not think that Douglas Adams was really saying that the meaning to the Ultimate Question is the product of two wholly unremarkable numbers (6 and 7) but that we are looking for meaning in the wrong places.

User24 the is the dullest word in the whole of the english language. It's just so dull. I mean, what is the point?

Unfortunately neccessary, though.

Imagine, though, if the word the was replaced by a longer word, eg: heffalump.

the first sentance of this post would read:

heffalump is heffalump dullest word in heffalump whole of heffalump english language. It's just so dull. I mean, what is heffalump point?

emo emo The satistic says that fifty percent of women have one of these in their life time. Is it murder to you? To me, it was scary, painful, horrible, terrible, final, and my only choice.
For my mistake, i will always know what i had to do to fix it. My life would have changed and my dreams would have melted if i had not gone in that day. The day after my 17th birthday.
i dreamt about it, i knew without testing. It grew inside me, it was a part of me. For a little while there was someone else worth living for. Their inside my belly, there was a living person, with arms and legs and a head and a heartbeat. In my heart i could feel it. It was like nothing i have ever felt before. I hope someday i feel it again.
I stopped smoking for it. I stoped drinking for it. I had cravings for what it wanted. It was a small part of me. Nobody could know that feeling.
Then i went in that day. And came out, and it was gone. I had gotten used to it being there. It was just ripped from my body. Like nothing. But it was.
I had no choice.
And now, again. Could it be possible? I don't ever want to do that again. Never.
I'm going to pray...

Christopher Kendalls Three directions

Canít say that anything pleases me more
I was supposed to continue to film this
Yet it was calling me to walk away from the camera
Participate in your naughty endeavors
When the two of you, after being penetrated
Itís in-between you two and going in and out
Just to see the look on both of your faces
I wanted to walk up towards you Jennifer
Let you taste what I had been holding back so long
As it was unscripted yet at the moment it did not happen

I know how you had been looking at me
Because while Susan was there for you
The way we communicated with each other
But I wanted to respect that union
As hard as Iíd tried you pulled me closer to you
That day back in October
To think that she would walk through the door
Made it even more exciting and exhilarating
Iím still confused why you want me to archive anything

Yet the money is good and Iím not complaining
And there are a million other women
I feel a tap on the back of my shoulder
And she motions for me to head towards you two
I see the look of disappointment in her face
Yet it didnít seem to bother you in the least
What happened over the course of the next hour
Yet you pull away from me and tell me to go toward her
Being taken care of by the two of you in that way

Now to look back on that experience
And no one returns my calls anymore
Although Iíve seen you two I wish I hadnít
The hostility Iíve endured
She tells me she isnít with you
You tell me it wasnít serious with Susan anyway
I see the two of you in my dreams
I watch yet I canít participate

Youíre looking through me
The only thing holding me back is myself
Because I know in real life
The two of you are laughing at me
We occasionally hook up to play
And itís like nothing Iíve ever experienced
Yet to have you both at once
Was on an entirely different level
And it drove me insane thinking about it
And it was eventually ruined for both of you

Now Iím all alone hurt and confused
And the two of you have moved no
And it doesnít even matter anymore
The two of you showed me a part of myself
That in reality you can never sustain
Accept my apologies
As I find someone to move forward with

ann moses I once sat with a friend tripping on shrooms and after awhile he wanted to talk and he told me "but i dont know what to talk about" and I started off the conversation asking:

What have you learned about yourself thus far in life?
him: That i dont know.
What would make you truly happy in this reality?
him: To know.
If you could fathom what you dont know, what would you come up with?
him: That i do know, that i am all.

And after that I said, Well then, perhaps you do know, after all.
He the went outside for hours and came back as said
No Annie, I dont know.

And I said "me neither bro"
