What would you call a library? I have about 100 books in my room, but they definatly ain't a library.
A room that exists for the sole purpose of containing books.

I'd say if you've got enough books to fill a room with, then that room's a library. I suppose i do have weird defenitions at times... but i suppose most studys with a healthy number of books would be librarys to me...
i think i just think, ah library has books... so does that room... so that's the library room... but it doesn't count if you sleep in that same room... unless you sleep on the books.

Well, you know how it is when you have a life. Sleep only gets in the way.

Ah, perceptive. Why sleep when you could be doing something constructive?

I've concluded that sleep is strange but necessary for full use of life... that doesn't stop me from having "awake binges" but that's part of life too.

i heard (probably ********) that some scientists did an experiment, keeping some dude awake, back in the 60s, and after 4 days he was hallucinating crazyness, like spiders crawling on his arms etc.. and that his brain got bugggered and he died within the week.

it's an interesting story anyway.. plus when you do 60+ hours awake you do start having a seriously distorted perception (moreso)... maybe it does develop into hallucination... but either way the story seems pretty dud.

Some American student (Randy something) stayed awake for 11 days. The after-effects led to his suicide.

Once i am the omnium, then i shall not need to care or sleep or want... i'll just be. and that will be that, i suppose i won't really give a toss about the forum either then. Oh well, such things happen when you achieve such illumination.

in that case i recon my friend made up 7days so i wouldn't try above 5days awake.

If you say so.

well, it'll be a while... i've got to go through this whole living bit first, then destruction and wrath, rebuild, destruction and wrath, maybe rebuild again, then "absolute all-ness" and i don't think i'd want to disturb her either.

Right, sure, why not? Keep your ying and yang balanced and you'll be set.

William McGonagle's Poem;

- Beautiful Railway Bridge of the Silv'ry Tay!
Alas! I am very sorry to say
That ninety lives have been taken away
On the last Sabbath day of 1879,
Which will be remember'd for a very long time.

-

'Twas about seven O'clock at night,
And the wind it blew with all its might,
And the rain came pouring down,
And the black clouds seem'd to frown,
And the Demon of the air seem'd to say-
"I'll blow down the Bridge of the Tay."

-

When the train left Edinburgh
The passengers' hearts were light and felt no sorrow,
But Boreas blew a terrific gale,
Which made their hearts for to quail,
And many of the passengers with fear did say-
"I hope God will send us safe across the Bridge of the Tay."

-

But when the train came to Wormit Bay,
Boreas he did loud and angry bray,
And shook the central girders of the Bridge of Tay
On the last Sabbath day of 1879,
Which will be remember'd for a very long time.

-

So the train sped on with all it's might,
And Bonnie Dundee soon hove in sight,
And the passengers' hearts felt light,
Thinking they would enjoy themselves on the New Year,
With their friends at home they lov'd most dear,
And wish them all a happy New Year.

-

So the train mov'd slowly along the Bridge of Tay,
Until it was about midway,
Then the central girders with a crash gave way,
And down went the train and passengers into the Tay!
The storm fiend did loudly bray,
Because ninety lives had been take away,
On the last Sabbath day of 1879,
Which will be remember'd for a very long time.

-

As soon as the catastrophe came to be known
The alarm from mouth to mouth was blown,
And the cry rang out all oe'r the town,
Good Heavens ! The Tay Bridge is blown down,
And a passenger train from Edinburgh,
Which fill'd all the people's hearts with sorrow,
And made then for to turn pale,
Because none of the passengers were sav'd to tell the tale
How the disaster happen'd on the last Sabbath day of 1879,
Which will be remember'd for a very long time.

-

It must have been an awful sight,
To witness in the dusky moonlight,
While the storm Fiend did laugh, and angry did bray,
Along the Railway Bridge of the Silv'ry Tay.
Oh! ill-fated Bridge of the Silv'ry Tay,
I must now conclude my lay
By telling the world fearlessly without the least dismay,
That your central Girders would not have given way,
At least many sensible men do say,
Had they been supported on each side with buttresses,
At least many sensible men confesses,
For the stronger we our houses do build,
The less chance we have of being Killed.
