Abrupt Inertia

Blog post # 48:

No pictures today. So very sorry.

I will appease you all, though, with this number poem:

1+2+1+2+3+1+2+2+1+1+2+3+4

Don't ask me what it equals. I only make the questions, man, not the answers.

--------------------------

I hear them listening....


I hear YOU listening.

The results of the latest poll are in.

Only 3 votes. (So very sad. Democracy is DOOMED, DOOMED, I say!)

Question: What should be the topic of my next poll?

One vote was for favorite 1-digit number.
One vote was for favorite 2-D shape.
And one vote was for favorite force of nature.

After I post this blog-post, I will delete the latest poll and then put up ALL three questions voted for.
I think I will give three weeks until those polls close, one week longer than usual, since there are 3 times as many polls, you know!

Let's review the new polls.

Poll # 1: What is your favorite 1-digit number?
(Obviously I couldn't have asked for you favorite number, period, because then there would have been an infinite number of buttons to choose from.)
The choices here are self-explanatory and obvious.
0
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9

Poll # 2: What is your favorite 2-D shape?
I apologize if your favorite shape is not mentioned. (There are too many to mention.)
Circle
Ellipse
Triangle
Square
Rectangle
Rhombus
Parallelogram
... (By the way, is a Parallelogram where TWO people give a simultaneous singing telegram?)
Trapezoid
Pentagon
Hexagon
Heptagon
Octagon
Lemniscates
Cardioid


Poll # 3: What is your favorite force of nature?
I apologize, but I am going to limit this to the 4 known FUNDAMENTAL forces of nature. (And I don't mean Pat Robertson!)
I hope this is okay with the person who voted for this poll topic.

When I wrote this as a possible topic, I was thinking that Dark Energy (not to be confused with Black Power) was a force. But it is not. It is an energy. Silly me and my ignorance of physics.

So, here we go, the forces:
Gravity
Weak Nuclear Force
Strong Nuclear Force
Electromagnetism

Thanks for playing.

---------------------------

Cumin smells like human.

---------------------------

Given the shitty economy, many people are staying near home instead of traveling far away, taking so-called "stay-cations", as you may have heard.

Well, maybe this idea should be expanded to animated movie-making too, so as to save money.

Maybe there should be a clay-mation movie with one still shot, and that is all.

STAY-MATION!...

The clay characters would be seen just sitting around, nothing happening. Then, in the final second of the short movie, one of the character's arms falls off, as if by accident.

(I know I have seen this somewhere before.)

----------------------------

You all know by now that I am happily un-loved an un-loving.

As a matter of fact, if I ever end up marrying someone...
it will only be because I became a priest..

True.

I was thinking today that what I have, instead of a love-life,
is a HATE-life!

I hate so many things, it seems (things I have decided are literally evil). I guess I just have to relax and be at peace, man.
Peace, peace, peeeeeeeeacccce......

Ah, yes, where was I?

Yes, subject to inertia.

Thanks,
Leroy

Thanks for commenting. I have "written" a couple of number poems, actually. Think of the numbers as musical notes, say, and the number poem as a song. (I usually don't put pluses between the numbers, but did this time.)
