    Default The NT Guide to Randomness

    When I was younger in middle/high school, I would scan through the bible when I got bored to try and find a random verse to entertain me. (Religious texts themselves are serious, but back then I treated all written words as literature, to be read and misread in any way I wanted.)

    Then in high school, I got a text. This is what it said:

    A three-ring circus
    Johnny Carson
    56 hot dogs w/ no mustard

    That was my formal intro to thinking about random things, ideas and what not.

    Anybody else had fun experiences with randomness?

    That was a little fun, until I got to the text, and tried finding obscure connections within it, and then trying to figure out the relation of the second part to the first.
    Excuse me, but does this smell like chloroform to you?

    You don't look for obscure connections: you turn the whole thing into an obscure conception.

    When I read it, I pictured in my head what it would look like for Johnny Carson to take center stage at a three-ring circus, and take on the hot dog eating champion of the world, one on one!

    ... well I laughed haha. To each, his own.

    how do you enjoy randomness, Antimony?

    My Ne decided to take some crack today, so it went extra crazy.

    HAHAHA WOW

    That makes a lot more sense than what was going through my head.

    Don't worry, I did too

    How do I enjoy it? Clarify.

    I pictured Johnny Carson in the audience at a 3-ring circus. When the vendor walks by, Johnny says, "Yeah, can I have 56 hot dogs? Oh, and hold the mustard!" And then he sits there like a kid in a candy store watching the circus and chowing down on 56 hot dogs.

    I think Ne tends to enjoy these kinds of things. Ne is somewhat random by nature and it likes to find ways of connecting things together or finding a way for things to be related somehow.
    NTJ's are the only types that have ever made me feel emo.
    ENP's are the only types that have ever made me feel like a sensor.

    LOL. I've driven down that street before. All kinds of stuff going on around there.

    yeah, I've got experience with the Jesus Christ of Randomness. It's called Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

    Try it.
