It seems a lot of us here are extremely good at straying from the issue at hand. I'd like to dedicate this thread to those people.

This thread is for discussions with little or no relevance to anything Rosetta or BOINC related. If you have an off-topic thought or a witty remark that you just can't hold back, this is the place for it/you.

If I see a coherent conversation arise here, I'll be very dissappointed.

I had the idea that the initials of the top predictors each day were trying to send me a message.

So far, Novemeber's secret message is: "NDWpXEASjb" I'm having trouble pronouncing it but I think it's pretty obvious that I'm on to something here.

Leaves are falling
The sun is fading
Outgrowths are bleeding
And my brain is oh so tired!

Genetics gone bad (but who owns the lab?)

But what does my eye behold?
And what's waiting for me?

A man dressed in white
With an instrument, and watchful eyes
And women with a fluid so dark

A train ride up north
Into the cold white darkness
Of the land of yore

Will I return? Yes I will
But this poem's too long
And your eyes are sore
So I'll end

Right here.

Posting irrelevant information here comlies with the topic of the thread, thus making everything on topic.
But I digress....

Moooooo.

No. Not everything is on topic. For instance this post. I responded to you, which makes me on topic and therefore off topic.

I would chastise myself for responding directly to you, but then I would be off-topic again by being on topic.

Why do we drive on a parkway, and park on a driveway?

The complex roots of unity

It sounds like a title of a political essay, but in fact is from maths.

Accidentally bought the "Black Cherry Vanilla" variety of Coca-Cola. Disgusting.

I don't know how to feel about my new avatar. My eyes won't focus when I look at it. Do I need new glasses?
