Also note it's that whiney pussy from Korn.
I couldn't have described him better myself LMNO. I'll eventually come up with something else....but for now, heh, why not?  :fap:
Fuck those guys, really, there used to be this really nice place I'd go and have a drink, but one evening the barman thought it was nice to have a band play a live performance. But a HUGE fight broke out, some argument about the nature of reality or something. It was horrible, and the place hasn't ever been the same after the bar's Tool experiment.

I'm rapidly digesting [BUUURP!....'scuse me] as I make my first skim through "the book"....I'm sure there's relevance, I'm just too much of a n00b to know it....I obviously posted prematurely - however, since y'all seem at least mildly amused - I'll save the apology for. . . Aw srcrew it! no apology....no,,,NO!  :wink:

Clumsily put, Let's say we were in a bar, having a few pints, and talking about the nature of Universe.

You point out that most of what we consider "matter" is made up of empty space; the distance between a nucleus, it's electrons, and the nearest adjacent atom is comparatively large; why, that barstool over there shouldn't even be considered a solid!

I respond by saying that as far as we can actually prove, that barstool might simply be a hallucination, for we're not actually seeing the barstool, we're processing electric signals in our heads generated by our optic nevrves that claim certain wavelengths of ligh have bounced off an object, but none of that says anything about whether or not the barstool actually exists.


Then ECH comes along, picks up the barstool, and proceeds to beat the shit out of us with it for being such pretentious assholes.

Wow! I feel like SUCH a neophyte newbie! I don't even know who [what] ECH is!!!!
