Dear participants, dear audience

This thread was of course based on an absurdist play "Waiting for Godot" by Irish writer Samuel Beckett:

http://www.samuel-beckett.net/Waiting_for_Godot_Part1.html

http://www.samuel-beckett.net/Waiting_for_Godot_Part2.html

I enjoyed this thread in the beginning. There are people here in Setisphere who knew well what this was about, and others who were willing to find out for a bit of literary buffoonery. Thanks to you for nice two acts.

Later, this started to go more widdershins, and there is finite time for everything anyway.

Would someone of the mods now please lock this thread.


Regards

Maybe we will get Lucky.

This hat is his!

This the right place. Now our troubles are over.

Whoose hat have I just nearly tripped over?

Very fine hat, innit? But there is nothing in it.

No? Really? ;)

We could go, but we can't, 'cause we're waiting. Therefore, as we can't go, only thing we can do is wait.

Godot just called, he had some delay and says he's gonna be late...

Then we have to wait.

That rock could be erratic, therefore could you trust it?

That could explain it. The rock wasn't here before. Now it is. Things have changed here since yesterday.

I'm hungry, too.

I hear from a shepherd boy, that Godot will come surely tomorrow.

I wonder, was this tree here yesterday?

It must be here. We are to wait by the tree, and I see no others around.

Ahoy, shipmates!

The free calendar I got from the local Chinese restaurant last year runs out on 31 December. THAT is when the world will really end.

I have our current Trade Union of Education calendar, which runs up to 5 January 2014. It will be a Sunday. So, after today and the date Bill has, the next Apocalypse again will be in a bit more than a year.

Personally, I am only scared to end up into the imaginary Heaven. All my mates would be in the other department anyway, enjoying a nice sauna temperature.

I still prefer the old stuff to the new stuff.

Remember Wolfenstein 3D?

Ahoy, shipmates!

Maybe I also might just for once not post in this thread... hmm, not posting here for once means that at all other times... dang.

Anyways...

Cheers, Prost, Skol

... this brought in mind one memory from the past July. Photo actually taken in one churchyard:



No, I shall not explain a thing. ;-)

Ahoy, shipmates!

There is a saying, that in July, this country here is closed. Today saw a real classic proof of the fact, something indeed worth sharing: the present front page of Finland's largest newspaper Helsingin Sanomat international online edition: "Our next dailies update will not be until Wednesday August 1st at c.13:00 (GMT+3), as the International Edition will be in recess from Midsummer. A very pleasant summer to one and all!"

Wish you good summer - and good July down under, too. See you in August.

- - my randy raccoon - -

Incidentally, happened to come across with a randy fossil turtle affair, freshly reported: http://www.nature.com/news/sex-locked-in-stone-1.10850. But these particular offending deeds sure are statute-barred already.

And my dear rather bad tempered science teacher, I always thought raccoon dog, Nyctereutes procyonoides, is a species on its own right and not a hybrid. However, next time I see one I'll ask about his or her parents. ;-)

PK
