2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

I bet nighthoover would know all about the mice... and the non-breading zones in the house... - I have checked but have found very few locations in the house where breading does not happen... maybe the tiny under-stairs cupboard downstairs, near the front door is the only option, afterall smiley - erm

There WAS a "nighthoover" on a website called (IIRC) "Half-Bakery".

There, this "nighthoover" had written a single poem, in German. Below is the translation (via Babelfish).


>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Owing to to the Summer

Oh summer, it was beautifully with you,
much Freud and fun owes I to you.
The long days, short nights,
as if the luck with you would spend.
Now you must gehn, who autumn he approaches,
the forest in multicolored colors radiate.
Then it becomes grey and wet and coldly,
the earth rests, as more waer it old.
But one tune me correctly gladly,
because you come back - anyway.

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

But... but... are we waiting for nighthoover's return, or, indeed, as nighthoover themselves hinted at, are they not here, eternally, unable to leave, trapped as we all our, in our short-lived, yet eternal perserverance of existance, in our minds, and the self-generated universes of our own electromagnetic waves? - genuinely, I've not a clue... but I guess anything is possible smiley - zen unless, nighthoover's electromagnetic waveform had self-collapsed, onto itself, creating something even more ennefferable… Were the later true, then de-facto the former must be true... I'm not certain if the reverse would withstand scrutiny though smiley - erm
*thinks* smiley - erm unless.... nah, that would not seem overly likely... unless... we were all nighthoover, in our own unique nighthooverly ways smiley - zen

that poem was cool, BTW smiley - zen moving and revealing and, most nighthooverly of course smiley - biro

Sadly, Halfbakery dot com lost all their data many years ago, so I can't find the poem in its original German. I'd love for one of our German speaking researchers to give it a better translation. (Somewhere way WAY back in this thread I posted the original, but I can't be bothered to try and find it now.


Anyway, I was doing another websearch and found a few, non-h2g2 related hits for "nighthoover". Here's a profile for a user named "nighthoover" on a Czech website. Certainly fits the descriptions with "Total posts: 0".

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

smiley - wow we are both easily pleased, and viggerous in our requirement for the weird, or truly strange. Like my Grandmother, she used to love swearing at cheese. smiley - cheese Never sure why though.... maybe it was offensive cheese smiley - erm
"My Grandmother swears at the cheese" is to appear on my forthcoming album of predictible non-traditional folk songs and death metal, I'm still composing it though, trying to eusurp the bagpipes into it somewhere smiley - ermsmiley - musicalnote I've almost finished writing my first musical now; 'Lard! - the musical' smiley - zen a traditional tale of transexual Fish N chip shop owners smiley - erm the world needs more strange.

Yes, but can it *survive* more strangeness?
