the space presupposes two seperate figures though, as to what they signify I am unsure, possibly x is an algebraic signifier, maybe c refers to 83% of the population's favourite vitamin, perhaps it's a phonic abjuration to ogle the buttocks of the Launceston rugby team
wait a moment, I don't care
as you were

of course, one is forced to ask, has Aimless gone too far?
― Matt, Monday, 21 July 2008 22:23 (thirteen years ago) link
The incessant question, indeed.

Although I cannot recall with any precision whatsoever, I assume I meant by 'too far', so far that he cannot return and yet Aimless keeps coming back...

So you are saying he is like a hamster on a mobius strip exercise wheel?

I was thinking more along the lines of a capybara

At first glance I thought you said chupacabra.
Upon realizing my mistake I got to thinking about capybara and how they used to be skinned and the tanned hides made into a head covering
Eventually people tired of saying "I'm wearing my Capybara on my head" and shortened it to just "Cap".
American frontiersmen found the raccoon hides to be of a similar quality to the capybara and followed suit by making the now famous "coonskin cap".
This brought another thought to my mind.....
How dangerous was it for them to be wandering around the wilderness with what appaers to be a raccoon on their head? Nowadays you would be begging to be shot if you did likewise, so why wasn't it a problem way back then? Are we all so trigger happy today or were they just extraordinarily poor marksmen back then?
Which got me to thinking about the opening sequence to The Beverly Hillbillies where uncle Jed is hunting fer some food, misses the shot, and up through the ground comes a bubblin crude, oil that is.....
But he wore a tattered old stetson NOT some fancy dead animal hat.
Which leads me to believe that he barely kept his family fed due to his complete lack of outdoorsman skills therefore he never shot a raccoon which is an integral part to the production of a coonskin hat.
To further prove the point he went as far as to move clear across the country to a place where his lack of hunting skills would go unnoticed.
