Nonsense :)

Slightly got hyper and started thinking about 'Nonsense', which I feel is a beautiful thing! It takes a lot to be nonsensical! :).I swear!.My notion is - it's easy to call/term somebody a nonsense,and its easy to make sense, but it is difficult to make No Sense!! Oh, it's definitely a TALENT.

Chanced upon a few nice quotes on nonsense. That gave me a sense of relief. :)

“It is completely unimportant. That is why it is so interesting!”
“Nonsense is so good only because common sense is so limited”
“A little nonsense, now and then, is relished by the wisest men”
“Nonsense is an assertion of man's spiritual freedom in spite of all the oppressions of circumstance”
Here comes the best of the lot -
“Totally mad. Utter nonsense. But we'll do it because it's brilliant nonsense.”
From DA's stable!

I chanced upon lots of interesting stuffs on nonsense.This was a beautiful example - "Colorless green ideas sleep furiously" , well, the words considered individually make sense, and even the sentence is grammatically correct, but its utter nonsense. Don't forget to visit the results of the translation competition of the statement.
There's one more - Two hands clap and there is a sound; what is the sound of one hand? This statement is called a koan.Koan does not mean nonsense in its truest sense, but more like beyond the comprehending abilities of a mortal.

Adding more of nonsense. Got a poem generated on this,on the lines of Vogon.

See, see the great sky
Marvel at its big fuschia depths.
Tell me, chick do you
Wonder why the cat ignores you?
Why its foobly stare
makes you feel refreshing.
I can tell you, it is
Worried by your portmanteau facial growth
That looks like
A yoghurt.
What's more, it knows
Your bloody potting shed
Smells of frog.
Everything under the big great sky
Asks why, why do you even bother?
You only charm fishs.

I can hear you saying, NONSENSE.And I know you made total sense while saying that.

Einsteinophile said...

@ Navin : Yeah!
@ Anon : That's okay, let it reek of nonsense, that's what am exactly trying to prove. Too sad, if you couldn't comprehend that.
@ wiproite : :)

Einsteinophile said...

@ Anon : Plagiarism? Well, with what did you come to such a conclusion?
I do mention the "SOURCES" Anon!!

Sake in art forsake thy part
In the realm of the builder's weary shoulder
Smithreens of acidic foam surmise
The pleasantries of a morning cry!

ur post reminds me of a person who used to say NONCHENCE whenever he gets tensed.

Variety seems to be ur flavour in ur blog theme

Blogging isn't an art form - it's about freedom of expression. The point is not to write literature - the point is to write.

Of course, the same freedom of expression does apply to blog comments as well - so feel free to make a complete fool of yourself, as you have elegantly demonstrated here.

Maybe some day you'll gain the maturity to give constructive criticism, and then you might even gain the courage to reveal your identity.

@ Nirmal:Variety eh? good that u enjoyed it. :) (am assuming u did)

Ranga said...

It takes considerable effort to publish a post and find out abt vogon poem generator.As u say it s not easy to crap and that too crap something interesting.ur blogs are always interesting and u need not be informative always... carry on Einsteinophile.......

@anonymous: Every body blogs for pure pleasure and not because of peer pressure.It takes considerable effort to make even the crap interesting and it is so nonsensical of u to not understand it.

Man, everything around me makes so much more sense, now that i've read so much of 'nonsense' here! ;)

Never knew so many more people in the world, apart from u, were interested in nonsense, from what i've witnessed from your links! :)

Einsteinophile said...

Oh yeah, what I'd written is nothing at all.
Human mind is unfathomable! :)

Einsteinophile said...

@ Vinesh : Cute one! :)

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back they faced each other,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And rushed to save the two dead boys.
A paralyzed donkey walking by,
Kicked the copper in the eye,
Sent him through a rubber wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all.
(If you don't believe this lie is true,
Ask the blind man -- he saw it too!)

whats 'absolute nonsense'?!


Einsteinophile said...

@ Anon : Oh, not bad, which means u r this no-nonsense person.
@ yeomanly : And an illiterate on reading that, commented about it too! :D
@ joey : 'Absolute' ?? The Theory of Relativity comes into picture. To a person for whom it is 'Absolute Nonsense', the same thing will make so much sense to another. Hence the definition. :)
