    It's a forum tradition that there be a Thread That Will Not Die. This place doesn't have one. If it did, it died. So it was not really a thread that will not die. It was a poser.

    Post entertaining random thoughts. And if you are having a stressful day, open up the newest page of this topc and read someone else's entertaining random thoughts.

    I'll start.

    When you are 1 year old, a year is 100 percent of your life.

    When you are 50 years old, a year is 2 percent of your life.

    Time passes much more quickly as you age, except when it is Friday afternoon at the office. Then time slows to a crawl.


    This phenomenon explains why people who have reached a certain age always say the exact same thing when the news reports on the anniversary of a well known event.

    It goes like this:

    ANCHOR: It was one year ago today that Congressman Critter was videotaped throwing live puppies into rush hour traffic...

    GEEZER: What? That was a year ago?

    Do you know there are two threads here that will not die?

    The Coffee Shop - started 5/4/10 - posted in multiple times per day.

    The List - started 9/1/09 - posted in at least every other day.

    You're welcome.

    What about the 4F?

    Not that I want it to die, but it certainly seems to have real staying power.

    I also could have mentioned the "what did you have for dinner tonight", "word association game" and "poets corner" threads, but I thought 2 was enough.

    Time also moves very slowly when your foot is in your mouth.
