    Chaos and the Anti-Thread

    A number of posters and obviously the Forum Moderators have voiced concerns about thread derailment and obfuscation. As a inherent problem solver I wanted to do something about that. So I am dedicating this thread as the locale for the most ridiculous, outrageous, and nonsensical 'thoughts' that anyone can conjure. Of course, it is subject to moderation but there will be no complaints from me regarding the content.

    I'll start: The Non-sequitur shall remain profound! Long live the non-sequitur!

    The world is not insane! At every level of civilization, at every level of societal functioning, and even at the level of the minutest social interaction (including forums) we see the root cause of conflict. It is the primordial battle of survival as hopelessly misguided as it is in a contemporary context. It is the fear held by the authoritarian and the sentience of the human that are locked in mortal combat. Any humanity we witness is a harbinger and any actor in favor of humanity is the vanguard of the future. Have heart, we are evolving!

    If there is a need to delete this thread, no problem, I am a human!

    I don't see any such need, but I do feel that it would better belong under Off-Topic than under Alternative Ways Of Living, so I'm moving it there.

    Since I have been demoted to derailer #2 by Donk, I’ll derail this thread and go after others in an attempt to regain my prior #1 status.

    ...where’s my dynamite? Probably in a box in the garage somewheres.

    Hey Dumpster, Now that's what I'm talkin' 'bout! ... but, unfortunately, I'm one step ahead of you...it is a simple mathematical/logical impossibility to derail this thread! Hah! I really should insert the evil laugh thing here, but I'm sure you get the picture!

    No, grrrr in aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuggggggg gggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I guess I should have added that this thread didn't belong in the off topic section because it is impossible to be off topic! In fact, I would encourage anyone feeling stifled by thread stiffness can post here and openly refer to the other threads. All in the interest of good intent, you understand.

    In that I don't see it listed here.. it sounds like it is still perfectly acceptable to continue hijacking threads for my shaggy dog analogies. Thanks.

    So this is out of my field of expertise...
    So off I go and look it all up.
    And find a version of it with A Donald Trump character in its cartoon still ...

    Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZJDYlxkM-c

    And then in the comments we have someone saying how David Rockefeller died on March 20, aged 101.
    It was also the birthday of Barron Trump, aged 11.
    And it was also World Frog Day... not to be confused with the International Day of the Frog, which only comes every 4 years on Leap Day... supposedly.
    I mean supposedly, because who knows what's up and what's down any more with all these cross overs and tears in the fabric of the time continuum thingy.
