Wombat,
While agreeing whole-heartedly with your post I think you are mistaking 1960's Timothy Leary inspired hornswoggle for 1980's New Age claptrap! Mind you, they do seem indecipherably similar. But there is a generation of difference in the adherents, for the most part. Then again, allowing for the possibility of zero intellectual development over a span of twenty years, it's certainly possible that one could have dropped a decade or so, and woken up in the eighties and melded right in with the new age. Either way it's a pot of beanwater.

Beansprout consumption would certainly be in my top ten societal determinates that either the end was near, or, at least, the end of life as we know it. Consider all of the examinations we could eliminate with one simple question, "do you eat bean sprouts?" The SAT, any professional exam where the licensee has a responsibility involving the public welfare, and maybe even the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality exam.(g) I have sailed with these people, for six months at a time, and they do not get better the further offshore. Terminal weirdness is not a desirable quality in a shipmate and has a shrinking effect on even 1000 foot freighters. I think my ten bucks is safe.

This is for you and Ms Wombat and remember, there's more where that came from!

Sailaway...what a hoot!
I do believe that we are are seeing the third iteration of the 60's in the present decade with some of the global warming/PETA crowd ...and Ms. Crowe (formerly Ms. Armstrong) this past week has perhaps formulated the new question of the age... "How many squares of TP do you use?"....to which the only proper and politically correct answer is..."It depends on how many bean sprouts I've eaten!"
One can only speculate on the stash of TP the "1000dayers" are carrying... or perhaps they will be weaving the beansprouts into macrame sheets of suitable dimensions and then composting them.

I love this place

Cam the pc response should be be how much can the joker valve handle.

Are they goin to have immunity challanges, I can't wait to see who gets voted off the Island first
I wonder if they have a pistol with one shot hanging on the bulkhead?
Will girle shoot man, man shoot girle, girle shoot girle, or man shoot man?
The suspense is killing me

Hey I would actually turn on my T.V. to see that one.
A dozen people on a schooner for a thousand days. WHO will break first?
The loosers get put into open life boats with sextant, chart, compass, clock, dirt and sprouts. If they make landfall they get to come back from the dead in the double jeopardy round.

Excuse me while I head to the copyright office.$$$$$$$$

I guess that makes John Adams the Ultimate Survivor, especially with the local women. What were their age differences? Anyone?, Bueller?
