Exclamation Blue my mind

Wow! That is just the most amazing coincidence example of synchronicity...!



I'll buy the meaning of life being mkonf for its applicability within the zen tradition, but what is the purpose of meaning?

You mean it didn't before?

And can anyone find me an exact definition of the word onf in any language (no acronymes accepted)

And the purpose of meaning is to give something a purpose.

According to this webpage, onf is a technical expression used in musical notation for the guitar.

Delighted to be of assistance.

Ah. So the meaning of life is to play guitar.

It's all so clear now. Keith Richards was right!

Why in God's holy name, (sorry) would the meaning of life be a number?! There would be no meaning to that!

I would go into a huge rant about this, but instead, I'm so angry, I'm just gonna go and lie down.

Then maybe I'll kill someone.
Now who's next on my list...

Ah! Capn Loogie!

Somehow, they did. Almost literally, they all came here from the future to kick some past I's butt or simply for makin' good ol' onf. *sigh* Good job, Ray, for buggin' the hell outta Neil. Consider at least minimal usage of capitals, though. XD

I was made in a small outhouse in Louisianna by a goat herder and a bunson burner.

In fact, I was made when my owner typee typed in his username and clicked 'register now' or sumtin'. So, from a certain aspect, yes, Joshi, I was made in Taiwan, and that from or using 100% naturally grown and/or recycled electrons.

I posted to this thread?
Yes. I posted to this thread.
Odd.


I find it comforting that Ray Jones is packaged and sold as an Organic product. Even if it's not true.
What is truth anyway? It's all just so much guitars, smoke, and mirrors... free flowing electrons and photons... The feudin' of the Skinkie's and McCoy's...

And, according to the website, it's : *onF#* (We are in the key of "D" after all... I don't know why that is, but it must be significant in the cosmic scheme of things.)

*Shhh...*

It had the correct number of syllables to stand in for "Hatfields"... I guess I could have substituted "the Joshis" instead... but that's a strange word to pluralize. (Joshis? Joshies? Joshii? See the problem?... The Joneses was right out, for purely aesthetic reasons.)

So fer here on out, you and the Skinkie family are a feudin'... y'hear?

It's still Joshi, but they "I" is pronounced like the "I" in "Pirate" rather than the "I" in "Picnic".

Assuming you pronounce it like "Josh" with "ee" on the end... I think we should all say how our names are pronounced (With the exception of McCoy, whose name, as we all know, is pronounced "twat" )
