    "Time traveller" nonsense

    When I from time to time (!) read the words combined "time-traveller" - meaning anything but what we know of as the flow of time, I find it only an absurdity. OK. I have been brought up with such views, but the "logic" behinjd is for me just not there.

    Here are my first original contributions: There was an old spinster from Claire Who wore Chinese pins in her hair. She said "My name's Dinah, And I'm not from China, But Lord! I would rather live there". A very strict Vegan from Cork Would eat neither chicken nor pork: No fish, flesh or fowl...

    Nonsense poetry and plain silly poetry

    As a starter, this poem by G.K.Chesterton. :weird: I wish I were a jellyfish That cannot fall downstairs; Of all the things I wish to wish I wish I were a jellyfish That hasn't any cares And doesn't even have to wish 'I wish I were a jellyfish That cannot fall downstairs.' The learned...
