On Being - somewhere

by Rick_from_BC In reply to words of wisdom

Rule 1: Everyone has to be somewhere.
Corollary 1: You can't get there from here; you have to start
somewhere else.
Corollary 2: No matter where I am, there I am.

[Doggerel]
As I was going up the stair
I met a man who wasn't there.
He wasn't there again today.
I wish to H^^^ he'd go away.

You should probably use something other than the carat as your wildcard character. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw H^^^ wasn't "****", it was that ^H is the visible detritus of a control character used to delete/backspace in some applications. Thus, ****^H^H^H^H would be a "clever" way of indicating that you "deleted" a word, similar to using a strikethrough.

Of course, I didn't say anything about the control characters for other deletion operations.

Credo for life

Be a friend to the person you see in the mirror, they were there when you came into the world and they will be there when you leave.
