      'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
      All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

      "Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
      Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!"

      He took his vorpal sword in hand:
      Long time the manxome foe he sought--
      So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
      And stood awhile in thought.

      And, as in uffish thought he stood,
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
      Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
      And burbled as it came!

      One two! One two! And through and through
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
      He left it dead, and with its head
      He went galumphing back.

      "And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
      O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
      He chortled in his joy.

      'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
      All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.


      Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll (a.k.a. Charles Dodgson) is generally considered to be the greatest of all nonsense poems in English. It is so well known that a number of its nonsense words have entered the Oxford English Dictionary. Alice (of Wonderland fame) here, in the paragraph following the poem, puts her finger on the secret of the poem's charm:

      "... It seems to fill my head with ideas -- only I don't know exactly what they are."

    • The Wisdom of SPAM part 1-10

      As some of you may know I administer my own domain, which means I get to read all the emails which are sent to dead addresses on my domain. Addresses I haven't used in years, literally. Every so often when going through the mountains of spam I receive on these address (generally about 10 messages per day on 5 addresses) I'll come across a 'gem' stuffed inside some otherwise garbled jumble of random text, or advertizements for Viagra. I have been compiling these for a while and I think now is the time to share:


      God made everything out of nothing, but the nothingness shows through.

      My tears stuck in their little ducts, refusing to be jerked.

      I can remember when the air was clean and sex was dirty.

      Automatic simply means that you can't repair it yourself.

      Actors die so loud.

      I am always doing things I can't do, thats how I get to do them.

      Acting is not being emotional, but being able to express emotion.

      You get whatever accompishment you are willing to declare.

      Glory built on selfish principles is shame and guilt.

      Anyone who interprets or defines your rights controls your destiny.

      I'll be going on a hiatus for a while.

      I'll still check in occasionally, but I won't really be contributing for a while, most likely until the next season starts.

      EDIT: OK, so I corrected the spelling, it only took me like a month to notice it was spelled wrong

      Death Without Life

      no joy, no hope; just pain, great pain.
      great pain as I sit, alone in the world
      no joy as I walk, alone in the night
      no hope as I am, alone in my plight.

      no love, no care; just hate, disgust.
      just hatred I bring, upon my own head
      disgust and contempt, upon my disguise
      no love and no care, upon my own eyes.

      no peace, no friends; bleakness and death.
      my life is but done, this coil I do leave
      no friends for my heart, this is my disease
      no peace for my mind, this poisonous heave.

      no life, no life; silence and ruin.
      eternal repose, death brings the end
      no life to give, death ends my strife
      no life no life, death without life.

      ~ Me

      All bow to your authority. You will crush all the inferior people under the soles of your jackboots, and any who question your motives will be eliminated. Your punishment is being the bane of every other person's existence, because you're constantly contradicting stupidity. Everyone will be gunning for you. Your dreams of a master race of spellers and grammarians frighten the masses. You must always watch your back. If only your power could be used for good instead of evil.

      What is your grammar aptitude?

      For those of you wondering just how much power George Lucas has take a look at the facts

      I was looking on moviefone.com and checking out the upcoming movies, deciding which ones I actually want to see. and I notice something......
      3 Movies open the first week (May 6th)
      4 Movies open the second week (May 13th)
      2 Movies open the forth week (May 27th)
      but only one movie opens during the third week
      STAR WARS - May 19

      I guess hollywood realizes they can never hope to compete with a movie like Star Wars....so they don't even try. THAT is how big Star Wars is.

      BTW
      May 6th
      - Crash
      - House of Wax
      - Kingdom of Heaven
      May 17th

      Hereh, here dude. I'm a systems analyst (ie: programmer) for a very recognizable US company. It's amazing how stupid users can be. But I have to admit, all of us in the IT deparment have some good laughs at the expense of them. They kind of keep us entertained.
