    Try reading all the Customer Service threads from the past 2+ years, he's not saying anything that isn't true, especially compared to how things used to be. It is what it is, if you were here longer than 5 months you might know that.

    Think I'll head out and see what Ed is doing.

    Well, I have not been much around here on the last 6 years, so I am not up to date on what's been going on.

    In any case, I think I haven't really missed much.

    It's really sad actually. This was about the best online community up to 8ish years ago.

    Class! Class! listen up

    "Nothingness" is a philosophical term that denotes the general state of nonexistence, sometimes reified as a domain or dimension into which things pass when they cease to exist or out of which they may come to exist,

    You know, I've been wondering that for quite a while.
    Hmmm. Oh, I guess it's nothing.

    What about "unknown" is this a thread about that as well. If so then all I have to add is a big ol' fat NULL

    Unknown equals nothing to me, unless you can prove it through a double-blind test, then it becomes something instead of nothing. We may need Darqueknight to verify any such testing however.

    Once “nothing” turns into “something”, then it is off topic and will not be tolerated, and “time-outs” will be issued.

    thought 1.

    You can also offset an “unknown” with an equal and opposite “known”... an example of this would be the Predator movie franchise. The first film was awesome, and a known of the positive type. So if you take that film, and combine that with the last film in the series, which is exactly opposite in terms of awesomeness, you would have enough negative to make things equal.

    In this case you likely have more negative, but negative in this case is actually a positive in that it is still a big fat nothing...

    I hope this clears things up.

    Edit*** two big fat nothings can also equal something, so please let’s leave Rosie O’Donnell out of this conversation.

    Sorry, but that rack is something, but then again, there is nothing on it. We can call this a perfect example of one canceling out the other. It is also an unknown in that we don’t have a clue what will go on it...

    Well done sir!
